This has to be parody

It's purported to be a Unionista in Maryland fed up with Scott Walker and fed up with the Tea Party.  Is it real?  Or is it parody?  You watch, you decide.

This is not parody. Many union members truly believe they would be working in sweatshops if it were not for their collective bargaining agreements, giving inventors, management and entrepreneurs no credit whatever for the increased production that has resulted in America's high living standards.

To be fair there is a point to saying that the American worker has benefited from the union movement. But one has to recognize that those benefits ended some 50 years ago or more. Today unions are little more than a parasite on the economy sapping the strength of key industries.

The auto industry would be far healthier if it were not for unions. Health care would be more efficient and provide better care if it were not for nursing unions. Education would be immeasurably better if teachers could be paid based on the quality of their teaching and discharged when they abuse students or fail to do their job.

Today unions do more to keep workers from actually doing their job than anything else. They are run by people who are professional union operatives. In many cases the people at the top have never done a union job.

Distinguishing between reality and parody lately has become nearly impossible.

Still, the verdict here is it's HIS reality.

Neither. I'd say its mental illness.

"It does explain how our affirmative action president managed to get elected."

He got elected because the message was that if you oppose him it is because you are racist. He proved that this week with his claim that people oppose him today because they are racist. He is incredibly arrogant and self deceiving. People oppose him because he's a crappy president. People voted against him because they disagreed with his socialist policies.

He got elected BECAUSE people are racist. Blacks voted for him exclusively because of his race and are proud or doing so. Whites voted for him because they wanted to prove they were not racist. His campaign played on racial issues and his administration still does. One need look no further than the AG who said this week that he enforces the law based on race.

Unions also killed the Steel industry in this country at least at USS and Bethlehem. Look at what NLRB is trying to do all with Obama's consent.

He was also elected because conservatives couldn't a) shake off the (perceived) Bush legacy and draw the swing vote, b) heal the dichotomy in the conservative movement that calls for fiscal-oriented small government but intrusive social government (thereby forcing libertarian folk to choose between competing interests) and c) misread public mood, thereby overplaying the national security issue.

U.S. voters are a fickle bunch, and yes the pendulum swung conservative's way in the mid-term elections. But anyone who thinks it's a permanent swing (and that 2012 is a lock for Republicans) hasn't been paying attention to the effect the 24-hr news cycle can have.

Exactly what intrusions in social government are 'conservatives' calling for? 'Cause other than wanting abortions to be left up to the individual states or keeping the status quo on drugs and prostitution, I don't see many 'conservative' intrusions. You get more 10x more intrusions from the Dems.

Hmm I seem to recall that a lot of poor countries have Unions. In fact the Union movement was world wide. Him Greeces Public Sector Unions have done so good that the country is now bankrupt.

I think that I have already answered the first question adequately. In the present state of affairs I am convinced that we cannot possibly dispense with the trades unions. On the contrary, they are among the most important institutions in the economic life of the nation. Not only are they important in the sphere of social policy but also, and even more so, in the national political sphere. For when the great masses of a nation see their vital needs satisfied through a just trade unionist movement the stamina of the whole nation in its struggle for existence will be enormously reinforced thereby.
Before everything else, the trades unions are necessary as building stones for the future economic parliament, which will be made up of chambers representing the various professions and occupations.

Him and Hilter agree.

I think that our strength comes from.
The rule of Law, Capitalism, individual liberty ,hard work and innovation. This happens in both Union and non Union work force.

Les: Your 'exceptions' and definition of 'many' are spoken like a true believer. ;-) Limitations on personal freedom are just that, whether perpetrated at the federal level (the preferred tool of the Dems) or the state level (the preferred tool of the Republicans). When conservatives support the repeal of DOMA and its state analogs, abandon prohibitions against drugs, obscenity and prostitution, and fully embrace the First Amendment, then you can honestly say they're 10x better than the Dems.
