The union thread

If it's news, but not politics, then it goes here.

Change the subject?

Maybe your unaware that unions are very much behind legalizing millions of illegals. And 30 million prospective members is nothing to sneeze at.

Actually they care less about working conditions and wages and more about collecting dues. That they do favor wages and working conditions secondary though is a good thing.

It is from common sense period. It is the same with any business. The bottom line is profit. Unions like any business serve the pubic, and do so at a profit. Where do you think they get the millions they pump into both party campaigns?

Check the seventh word.

Look, I don't usually bother with picky editorial stuff, but if you're trying to distract people from your message by writing strangely, you're doing a fine job.

Please don't take this the wrong way, Sandi, but you're a fucking idiot. By the way, would you care to defend your position that all of the embassy attacks under Bush occurred in Iraq? Is this another example of your ignorance, or are you just a liar?

Before you call someone a liar you should at least read what they said. Or maybe you have a reading comprehension disability.

I never said "all of the embassy attacks under Bush occurred in Iraq."

at a risk of continuing this cross thread silliness, can you please list all of the embassy attacks that occurred in Iraq under Bush? Don't worry, I've already Googled it, I just want to see what you come up with.
