    Nothing like intrusive government and unions to kill any industry alive.

    Good job, People's Republic of California. Socialists.

    Nicely done, UAW and fellow goons. You killed off yet another chunk of jobs.

    But yet, even though we see time and time again that intrusive government and unions kill jobs for a living...we're going to let them take charge of our economic well-being.

    *sigh*

    What do you get when you cross a Toyota with a Chevy?

    A disposable government-made car that won't stop.

    You all should be happy. You hate unions and union states. You should feel vindicated.

    You are so lacking in knowledge about unions, it's pathetic. I guess it overjoys you that these American workers are now without employment. Maybe some day you will join them in the unemployment lines and see how it feels.

    I do hate how unions have wrecked our country. They are no longer about fair working conditions, as many once were. Now, they are about greed, corruption, intimidation, and doing just as little as one can.

    There are lots of fine folks who lost their job over this, and that is sad. But intrusive government and unions are the reason. Why do you think Alabama has several auto plants built, and more on the way? It's because unions and government don't kill business here.

    Of course, your mind has been poisoned by union propaganda, and you can no longer think for yourself. I've seen it before. It was the same poisoning that caused men I worked with to slash my tires when I refused to bone up to union demands years ago.

    So although I feel sorry for the families without a job, I'm glad the unions got it stuck to them. They deserved it.

    Bill, you strike me as the kind of fella that would work side by side with anyone...but if that "friend of yours" crossed your picket line, you'd commence to going after that same "friend" (in whatever manner your union handlers told you to). Tell me I'm not wrong. Would you attack a "scab" if your union handlers told you to?

    Classy. I miss the old Robert Snow...version 2.0...that wasn't so vitriolic.

    I've posted on here several times my union experiences. You see, I've seen and experienced firsthand what unions do to people who disagree with them. And I've seen firsthand what the result can be.

    I have a grasp of what unions accomplished in the early days...and there were some positive gains. But it is no longer about "safe working conditions" or "fair wages and benefits" as it is about corruption, greed, and laziness. Examples of all abound.


    Next time, read the posts before you engage in such infantile rants and momentous conclusion-jumping. The point was that unions aren't good for business, employment, or workers looking for jobs. And data was given that backs it up. Try and stay with us on the subject...you might learn something.

    Every Libertarian Party member has signed a statement claiming (promising?) that he will not initiate (physical) violence.

    Non-answer.

    Attempt #2:

    rbell,

    Is English your second language? You don't seem to understand normal conventions of conversation. I'm not used to emailing grade school kids.

    Did you know that Union people built the pyramids? It was originally designed as a cube. Each shift did a little less till the last said 'throw a rock on top and lets go home'.


    A man walks down the road, but stops at a peculiar sight. Two union guys are working by the side of the road, but the first is simply digging holes while the second is filling them up. Curiousity gets the best of the walker, so he asks the men what they are doing. "We're a post-hole crew," says the first. "But what about the posts?" The other union guy answers, "we're a three man crew -- Bob digs the holes, I fill them, and Charlie puts the posts in, but he's out sick today."

    Toyota can do a much better job without Government Motors calling the tune.

    They can also do it for a lot less money than in California. Non productive union workers are only part of the problem. The anti business climate of the liberally governed state has been running off businesses for years.

    It's time Toyota dumped an incompetent partner. They'd be more than welcome in Texas! As long as they leave GM in the dirt somewhere along the way.

    You know, most people are able to engage in this neat concept called "dialogue." Off-topic sentence fragments, schizoid ramblings, and random incindary assertions do not qualify.

    Feel free to consider yourself intellectually superior, if it will make your day a bit brighter. I don't particularly need the validation.
