Public Unions

Weight of the World on Taxpayers Shoulders

Public Unions Should be Taken Out of the Equation

It’s time we outlawed political contributions from Public Unions.  No other political contribution source is so directly attached to the largess of congress than, obviously, public employees.

Why should public employees be able to excerpt political muscle with money originating from the taxpayer?  You pay every payroll received by public employees from the Department of Agriculture right down to the kindergarten teacher in your local school, they in turn pay into their unions who use your money to legislate for higher wages and less work…your pocket is picked to improve the power if not the skills of the pickpockets, and there’s not a damn thing you can do about it unless it’s outlawed.

Steve Jobs & The American Spirit, RIP

by L. J. Martin

 

I think it particularly poignant that we pause and celebrate the life and accomplishments of Steve Jobs, who was given up for adoption by his parents, who rose from humble beginnings to leave his company with five times the cash reserves of the U.S.A.

Came to me on the web…brilliant:

Quote of the Day: Victor Davis Hanson on Why There’s No Such Thing As a Real Socialist

So what is socialism? It is a sort of modern version of Louis XV’s “Après moi, le déluge” – an unsustainable Ponzi scheme in which elite overseers, for the duration of their own lives, enjoy power, influence, and gratuities by implementing a system that destroys the sort of wealth for others that they depend upon for themselves.

Are “Union” and “Communist” now interchangeable?
