Wow, still with the birth certificate! The majority voted Obama in. Sorry, that's how it works here! AMERICA IS EXPERIENCING THE LARGEST DEFICIT IN HISTORY...."Deficits don't matter." (didn't Darth Vader say that at some point?).... 9.3% UNEMPLLOYMENT....I'm sure 8 years under Bush had nothing to do with that at all. At least the freefall is over (I pray we already have hit bottom)..I suggest you apply a little more patience in the climb back up!Feb 20, 2011

Susan, welcome to the corporate states of America. This is the individuals (combined with the backing of unions) last stand in defense of complete enslavement to mega-corporational rule of this country. The unions are one of the last counterbalances left against the share owners having an unquenchable greed and further shrinking of the middle class.
The unions were the voice against unsafe working conditions, child labor laws, anti discrimination in the work place, and are also a bargaining power for the individual in contractual negotiations. I am among the highest paid in my industry thanks to my union brothers and sisters. A dedication to a day of hard work for a day of fair pay is what I am proud of! I have no monthly insurance cost and am sorry for any one who has to pay these greedy insurance companies outrageous amounts every month (and still hope not to lose their home if they should need to actually need to use their insurance). I am also proud to say that my company has had some very profitable quarters recently!
