"Union fat-cats...myth or reality?"

So...you think labor unions are run by cigar chomping "Union Fat Cats", who receive outrageous salaries and benefits, while living a life of luxury comparable to Saudi Arabian Princes, lording their unrestrained power over the entire United States of America... all on the backs of the union-enslaved workers they represent. Here's your chance to prove it.

Republic:

Authority is derived through the election by the people of public officials best fitted to represent them.

Attitude toward property is respect for laws and individual rights, and a sensible economic procedure.

Attitude toward law is the administration of justice in accord with fixed principles and established evidence, with a strict regard to consequences.

A greater number of citizens and extent of territory may be brought within its compass.

Avoids the dangerous extreme of either tyranny or mobocracy. Results in statesmanship, liberty, reason, justice, contentment, and progress.

Is the "standard form" of government throughout the world.

A republic is a form of government under a constitution which provides for the election of:

Democracy:

A government of the masses.

Authority derived through mass meeting or any other form of "direct" expression.

Results in mobocracy.

Attitude toward property is comunistic-negating property rights.

Attitude toward law is that the will of the majority shall regulate. whether it be based upon deliberation or governed by passion, prejudice, and impulse, without restraint or regard to consequences.

Results in demagogism license, agitation, discontent, anarchy.

Democracy is the "direct" rule of the people and has been repeatedly tried without success.

When ever a person makes a CHOICE to either A: work at a union shop or B: work at a non-union shop they are making their own personal CHOICE !!!When you say they have no choice your LYING !! ~~~Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Albert Einstein~~~NO#1 theres nobody holding a gun to anyones head forceing them to ratify a union ! Thats more of your right-wing garbage that is propagated in order to sway you weak-minded types !NO#2 Just in case you havent noticed we live in a free democracy that as one of its bases is the right of the majority !You do know what a majority is dont you ?

And since you cant accept facts into your peabrain just remember your the one who said very vehemently that you cant buy an AK-47 and you were wrong about that one ! If the majority doesnt rule here then why is Obama president ? So your answer is full-o-crap !

See theres your problem tiredbrain , you seem to think that the vote would be close and usually its not ! Look thats just tough ! If your not part of the majority you still have choices ! You can choose to stay at the union shop and enjoy the benefits of collective bargaining or , you can find yourself a nice non-union job ! Since 87% arent union that should'nt be a problem ! So the choice is still there !

HOW MANY TIMES MUNSTER wouild you like your silly question answered???? I HAVE ANSWERED IT> If you are one of the 49.9 percent that votes NO on your shop going UNION, you didnt have a choice. You were forced by the tyranny of the majority. And before you start the Democracy (REPUBLIC MORON) Majority rule, take a Civics course and realize that Majority does NOT indeed rule in this country. If it did we wouldnt have OBAMA SOCIALISTCARE.

Put an end to the rights war on working people !Lets talk about your lack of brotherly love !!! Its not very loving to lie and mis-lead folks ! Especially when you say people have no choice when a person chooses either to work at A: a union shop or B: a non-union shop !! Now just how is it that thats not making a choice ??

Why do you think you can picket someone if they dont wish to renew your contract and would like to hire non union folks at the legal end of a legal contract????? Where is it written that once you have a Union shop, a business owner is bound for eternity in a relationship with your Union?

Posted 590 days ago.

The problem with people like you is that you think you OWN the job. I have pointed out many times that you only contract your labor for a defined length of time and nothing more. You however believe that you have right to attempt to harm the business owner by shutting down or obstructing his operation if he no longer wishes to renew your contract at its end. NOW WHERE WOULD THAT RIGHT COME FROM???

Munster I have pointed out that one can be faced with the choice of joining a union or losing a job that was NOT a Union job when they took it. You dismiss this by saying the majority ruled yet dishonestly still claim no one is forced into Union membership against thier will. Another LIE from you. Your dogma does not align with fact.
