I am not the one wanting something for nothing, you are.

Your generation wanted a Cold War with the soviets, yet failed to tax yourselves for its cost.

Your generation sent our jobs to the third world, and didn't tax imports to pay for the increased welfare system that had to provide for the masses in the place of un-patriotic businessmen (economic traitors).

Your generation multiplied the debt, generated the economic melt downs that required government loans to stop a tidle wave of more failed companies that would have put us (globe) back into a Great Depression.

Now you dare talk about tax breaks for anyone? NOT one more tax break for anyone making wealth over 35k a year. In fact, everyone making 25k a year, ought be taxed until the national debt is paid off.

Fred our voting choices consist of taking the lessor of two evils. Right now that seems to be Republican party for me. As for unions, I think unions have ruined the American auto industry (economic hit there for sure) but the core problem is our BIG government. Every government job has to be paid for by people NOT working for the government.

The country ran fine in 1970 and we had a fraction of the government work force at all levels that we do today. (By today's standards Watergate probably wouldn't make news)

We own a small business and in addition to every kind of tax imaginable we have to pay a freaking accountant to keep it straight. May as well call that a tax. Government bloat caused the recession and is what is going to let the Chinese catch us.

BTW Sexy the Chinese GDP has not passed us yet that's still around 8 years away. The PPP (Purchasing Power Parity) is what they passed us in. Basically you can buy more shit if you live in China.

@justus. I agree, I don't think jobs that create no revenue should be unionized. But they are and there is nothing anyone can really do anything about because even the republicans put up with it when they are in office. The only difference is they try to shrink the government and then hand out no bid contracts to their buddies or companies that they use to sit on the companies board, Either way it is tax payers money flying out the window. I look at private union contracts like the contract a company signs when they outsource a job. They have a set price and terms of the job description of work preformed. I just read an artical that the governor of Wisconsin is now holding up the right to work legislation that he help get a yes vote on. The system is so screwed up I don't know how people can even make an informed decision on how to vote. I think that is why people that claim republican vote that and people that are dems vote for them even though their platforms may be against the individuals best interest.

I also agree about giving small businesses a chance to be successful. I think we should afford them the same tax breaks as we allow the big businesses to enjoy. The only problem is most small business don't have the resources or capital to donate to the law makers that nake the laws. So more or less the true capitalist the small business man or woman gets pushed aside by big backdoor business capitalism.

@sexy- LOL you are funny. Do you do research before you type or do you just listen to what other people tell you? Unions comprise 11.3% of the work force, 6.7% in the private sector, and 35% government workers. Lotta jobs lost on Wall st and banking industry. No unions there. As far as Gnp its economics what did people think was going to happen when NAFTA was signed, china buying up our debt and natural resources ect ect. Before you type it GBsr negoaited NAFTA and Clinton signed it. As far as Wisconsin I guess you have been following the News there to. Their governor that ran on the right to work platform is now holding up legislation on the right to work law. So more or less it is not even in effect yet. Kinda like when all the republicans ran on the platform of fight affordable health care act and then folded like a cheap suit after they got elected. It's good to be an informed voter and watch what elected officials do instead of watching them flap their lips or listening to their talking points or towing the party line. If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything.

Hey Mickey, please tell us where you read Amnesty in the Presidents EO, or the bill in the house sit down strike. And, don't forget you don't have enough votes to overturn any VETO the President uses and that's constitutional.

Jeez, Fred, are you sure about Unions comprising only 11% of the work force? Last I heard, it was considerably greater than that. I've heard numbers as high as 65% of the government paid jobs, like teacher unions, police unions, postal workers unions, and almost all bureaucrats are essentially unionized with work rules, tenure, super pensions, etc. From personal experience, today it's really hard for a small business to grow with US taxes the highest in the world, open borders, no duties, enabling cheap imports, increasing regulations of all kinds smothering us with forms, screenings, hoops thru which to jump. It was announced today on FOX that the Chinese GNP has now increased beyond ours; we are now No. 2. Have you seen what Wisconsin has done since they threw out the union shops, and cut the bullshit State government controls? In four years? Amazing! Their debt is paid off! It's time for our government to start thinking how to help business grow, especially smaller businesses. That's where the jobs are. That's where we can really grow! That will regain prosperity for more than this socialistic burned out wasteland we now have. The need for unions is a thing of the past!

Or guess what since it is cheaper to ship products and they will still charge the same prices the company will make a bigger profit. I'm no robert about getting something for nothing, but I can't believe that any logical person would blame the loss of jobs on 11% of the work force. LOL people amaze me.

LOL unions killing jobs. Are you serious. Only 11% percent of the work force is union. And then you add in all the right to work states where you don't have to join a union. 11% of union workers alot less then 89% of the none union workers. So since your number is bigger you must be the problem. See you are actually buying what the big companies and their lackey politicans are telling you. I guess you are still waiting for food prices to go down to since in theory it should be cheaper to ship products now because gas prices are alot lower.
