The very reason Unions came to be was because of the abuses the "Job Creators" wantonly heaped upon the workers who they attempted to own outright. Company town, company house, company store. I always asked those who were against Unions why the people employed in (fill in blank) voted to be represented by one. Of course Union members make too much money and are lazy and need the Union to keep their jobs and on and on. If a company did not operate in good faith, the citizens paid in blood and more to have the right to Unionize. Today, the GOP and the real masters can operate in the open and attempt to not only have their cake, but eat it too. Roll back decades of sacrifice. People died to be a Union member. Families were burned out. Now we have those with both hands full buying lawmakers as in days of old. Guess who picks up the tab from underpaid workers? Guess who makes more money than ever before and still it is not enough? Not the Unions.

I thought it pretty noteworthy this morning that, when Snyder was on Morning Joe and trying to sell them on the idea that RtW was a great thing for Michigan and it would actually help unions, even Joe Scarborough thought he was full of shit.

within the past few years it seems like the gop has ceased to care if their "reasons" are even plausible anymore

just something to say on teevee while you are using brute force

Guess who picks up the tab from underpaid workers?

From another "right-to-work" state:

Perry’s biggest tool for job raiding is controversial. Beginning in 2003, he persuaded the Texas legislature to give him control over several massive, largely unsupervised funds that provide subsidies to businesses that move to Texas. His office proudly claims that the two biggest funds have created more than 54,000 jobs in the past eight years. “They’ve been immensely important to our state’s economic development,” says Catherine Frazier, Perry’s deputy press secretary. “This is about attracting jobs and making Texas a destination for companies to relocate and expand.”

The largest fund, the Texas Enterprise Fund, was created in 2003 and has awarded some $412 million in subsidies to companies nominally to create jobs. A December 2010 analysis by the Texas comptroller found that $119 million of that money went to companies that didn’t deliver on the jobs they promised. The governor’s office took back only $21 million from those underperformers, often choosing to define downward the job-creation requirements. GOP Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, whom Perry beat in last year’s GOP gubernatorial primary, called revelations that taxpayer-funded contracts sent money overseas to create jobs “disturbing” and “unacceptable.”

Think the unions made it pretty clear yesterday that they're not gonna take it anymore.

I really can't understand how the Republicans get all these people to vote for them.

Why the hell do these people all have the same haircut? You can tell which party they're from just by their hair.

Eddie Vedder with Roger Waters at 121212 now. I think the old guitar guru from SNL is on stage too.

I thought I was losing my mind. Eddie just came on. They kept showing that other guy singing and I was thinking damn he looks different.

Hey look, a loophole to close.

15 SteveMcG  Wed, Dec 12, 2012 5:38:18pm

I think we are a little bit lucky that Turdblossom didn't move on voter ID and the Supreme Court didn't rule on Citiens' United five years earlier.

I am getting a series of pop-ups that are telling me I have to download some media player prime files. Are these files safe to download and how do you do it on an Apple?

19 SteveMcG  Wed, Dec 12, 2012 5:42:19pm

OK I'll bite. What's EI?

re: #18 PhillyPretzel

Is it telling you to download the Flash Player? I've never heard of 'media player prime'... I'd recommend not downloading anything that seems questionable.

A lot of times you can find more info if you Google the exact message you're seeing.

Deeply disturbed man or outright creep? We report, you decide.

Seriously?

Right, because a mall *full* of people shooting would obviously have reduced the body count.

We don't use any ads at LGF that would ask you to download something - I keep a close eye on our advertisers to make sure something like that doesn't happen.

That's what I get every time a Jon Stewart vid is posted, and it opens multiple tabs.

The gorilla is on an island,eats bananas and has a good time all day long. He plays out there in the bushes. Some Americans find out about the gorilla and they hear how BIG he is - you know.They're very impressed with the size of the beast. So they catch the gorilla & they stick him in a boat & bring him back to the US. They show him off to everybody & make a bunch of money. ...Then they kill him ! -- The song King Kong.1968 tour Wisconsin.
