The only thing I would add is that the unions did stray from their original purpose....to represent and protect the best interests of the workers. They injected themselves in to the political arena and it has been downhill ever since.

Entropy always wins?

:-)

I think most things have to fail or fall eventually - we're only human, and the same weaknesses exist in all of us no matter how wonderful our plans

Maybe something better can come out of all our losses and failures - with enough time

they're not conservatives, Obama is a conservative, (a moderate conservative), our country is really really right-wing compared to the rest of the world when it comes to domestic/economic policies.

Unions do have a role in politics, their political role is one of self preservation.

Unions were crippled under Reagan, the Democrats lost the remnants of Labor when neo-libs took over.

Well, the further right you are, the more "left" Obama seems, so I'm not surprised that he seems like a leftist, liberal, socialist commie scum to some. But he's really quite moderate, in that he supports corporations and big money. He's playing the game.

LOL...like them all.

Every politician out there supports corporations, welfare, war, and being 'tough on crime". Now, they may all give lip service and rhetoric to a political ideology. But once you get beneath this crispy chocolate shell, its all just plain ol vanilla.

That is a fair assessment.

Even his Flagship Commie Law is nothing more than a rehash of the health plan put forth by republicans 20 years prior.

He might not even be a moderate conservative, as he is very much a war hawk.

Hello again Mr. X!

It seems that your opinion is not matched by reality.

"Total U.S. employment topped 139 million workers as of August 1, 2014, according to the latest Bureau of Labor Statistics data. (That number is expected to climb again when the Labor Department releases its new jobs report on Friday.)
The nation’s economic recovery has been slow, but the labor market has gained about 230,000 jobs per month so far this year. That compares to a monthly loss of 298,000 jobs in 2008; a monthly gain of 88,000 jobs in 2010; and a monthly gain of 174,000 jobs in 2012.
By total jobs per month, 2014 has seen the fastest rate of growth since 1998.

The strong gains so far also meant that, as of May 2014, the U.S. economy finally recovered the millions of jobs that the labor market shed between 2008 and 2010.

Unemployment is still too high, but so is your rhetoric.

The real Rum in the Punch is *Quality* not Quantity.

And I know that you know the BLS statistics are all by manipulated phone surveys.

Actual payroll numbers would be better.

Those might show the dilapidated income levels however, and therefore useless to Progressive politicians.

Hello again Mr. X,

"The real Rum in the Punch is *Quality* not Quantity."

You are quite right. Many of us are lost in the maelstrom of Capitalistic fervor.

Laissez faire Capitalism scorns the weak and impoverished.

This truly is the law of primal nature.

Should we not seek to rise above the privation of our nature?

Perhaps you should proofread your post if you're going to give spelling lessons? As to your point about not judging right-wingers by the actions of a small group — it would be wonderful if that was a universally applied standard but we all know it's not.


Correct me if I'm wrong, but did you just use the everyone-else-is-doing-it defense to justify stereotyping people?

That said, the criticism of stereotyping a large section of America by the actions of a few is valid. In fact, it's that exact mentality that divides the nation between left and right.

As for your desire for free time off, my issue with federal holidays is that it strongarms many employers into paying employees for doing nothing productive. I don't see the need to glorify that, let alone imply that it's not enough.

Your intelligence is in question by me anyways after seeing your avatar, anyone who supports the currant administration can't be to bright after all they have done.....or NOT done actually.

Maybe you shouldn't lump millions of people into a group because one small group did something.

Dude, it is absolutely hysterical that you called people out on a "spelling error", only to misspell it yourself. The word is Conservatives.
Next time, don't be so pretentious.
