    Default Unions Veer Sharply to the Left

    This is probably the most hateful, disgusting anti-union article I have ever read! Obviously it is the people on the right who have huge issues with the people they consider beneath them coming together in strength and fighting their way to a better life!

    Among the deadly sins is envy. It is a malevolent undercurrent, a dark side of human nature that despises success. And throughout history, envious people have sought to undermine and subvert the best in us.
    “A self-pitying inclination to contemplate another’s superiority or advantages, combined with a vague belief in his being the cause of one’s own deprivation. … Whereas the socialist believes himself robbed by the employer, just as the politician in a developing country believes himself robbed by the industrial countries, so primitive man believes himself robbed by his neighbor, the latter having succeeded by black magic in spiriting away to his own fields, part of the former’s harvest.”
    Yet that’s what America’s radical left wants for us. Their entire edifice has been built on the primitive emotion of envy. We are seeing this agenda being acted out writ large before us on a daily basis now.

    Much of America’s union leadership personifies that malevolent, destructive passion, seasoned with a healthy dose of greed, and they are using unions, often against the will of the rank-and-file, to obtain “justice.” They have become a poisonous spear, thrust deep into the heart of America’s spirit, and today threaten our very way of life. How did we get here?

    Didn't read the whole article....was starting to make my blood boil.......but heres some quotes on Capitalism and labor.....


    "Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.
    Abraham Lincoln"




    "These capitalists generally act harmoniously and in concert, to fleece the people."

    Abe Lincoln

    "Our labor unions are not narrow, self-seeking groups. They have raised wages, shortened hours, and provided supplemental benefits. Through collective bargaining and grievance procedures, they have brought justice and democracy to the shop floor.'

    John F. Kennedy

    And about the left.......

    "If by a "Liberal," they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people - their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties - someone who believes that we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say that I'm a "Liberal."

    Because it's true,..

    The unions could do so much for the working man,..

    Instead they side with lunatics and only serve the interest of the goons in charge of the unions,..

    All they want is your dues money, They do not care about the rank and file,...

    I guess you can always ask yourself if you ( and the rest of us ) would be better off without the unions ?

    So I'll only respond to your last sentence.
    That dues money provided me with the absolute best health insurance, a contract that protected me, and finally a nice pension to retire with.
    That's enough for me.

    Yes!!!! And I will ask the question again that if a person is so absolutely anti-union, why they would be a member of this site. I usually refer to those kind of people as trolls. You see the same thing all over FB!
