Bd and Newman, never heard that theory of unions in graduate school. The theory of labor economics is that unions are beneficial to both companies and employees. Detroits woes are caused by the decline of the major american car companies, caused by mismanagement. Before President Obama fired the CEO of GM, the ex CEO had lost about $80billion dollars of shareholder value over ten years all the while collecting his $millions in compensation, each year. Where did you guys go to high school?

Lyn is Jeff? Why didnt I notice that one??? I must be off my game. Obama is a toolbag. Labor unions have ruined America. They served a purpose at one time, but that is why we have labor laws now. The unions are no longer needed. They have driven jobs overseas, and they are not coming back. Good job democraps!
American Woman January 26, 2014 at 10:33 PM
Oh and Jeff/Lyn I was raised by a union democrat. I was twice a Union employee myself. They are a waste. Unions are for weak workers. I hated being in the union. Just kept my stupid coworkers employed.
Antonio January 26, 2014 at 11:05 PM
Recent study by Harvard University showed low wage women in unions earned about $2/hr more than non-union women. Also, union women workers have an 87% chance of pension plan versus 50% for non-union workers. Educated means you took courses, read books, etc. All major labor laws (Wagner Act, Taft Hartly, etc.) were all enacted before private sector union peaked at about 33% in early 1950s. AW, you can't just make up your own facts. No wonder your so screwed up.

"...never heard that theory of unions in graduate school. - Lyn ___________________________________________________ Did "graduate school" teach you that paying someone NOT to work is a good thing? You loons crack me up. You really do. One simple question for you, what was the overwhelming reason GM went teats up? You know the answer, just admit it.
DB January 27, 2014 at 10:33 AM
AW, you,missed that one? I picked Lyn as Jeff months ago and outed it! Just read the babble, watch the serious inferiority complex shine through the felonious aka. Hows the ticker doing Jeff? Still hiding from Steve? Hows the trial/case? Did you get a decent plea deal? Will you ever be able to vote again? I stopped following your drama......
Antonio January 27, 2014 at 11:04 AM
Oh, I forgot, one more characterization of the right-wing wackos is a touch of paranoia.
DB January 27, 2014 at 11:42 AM
Jeff, you forgot, we are all racist bigots as well....
Antonio January 27, 2014 at 03:21 PM
A lot of the right-wing wackos are racist bigots, but because they are primarily followers, their racist attitude has been softening as the larger public's attitiude has changed regarding race relations.
American Woman January 31, 2014 at 08:56 PM
I dont need a union to make decent money. I earn mine. Did you know that less than 10% of private sector employees are union? Its about 7% actually and dropping all the time. They had a place long ago, but now we have labor laws. Kleiner or Lyn or whoever you are, you are wrong. What do you know about working anyway, you are on the tit, remember?
Antonio January 31, 2014 at 09:33 PM
Newman, it's not my opinion. I just quoted what a Harvard research study showed. Facts are facts. Intelligent people change their minds when the facts change. I don't make up facts, which is what you are doing, and is more commonly referred to as lying. If you have to lie about your position then you don't have one. AW, again, the major labor laws were enacted before 1950, when unionization peaked in the private sector at about 30%. It's been declining ever since but it's not due to any laws. It's complicated (decline of industrial/mfg in U.S., union busting, union avoidance thur equal pay benefits, etc. Was HR pro for Fortune 10 corps with masters in HR. A lot of people in prof positions in corporate world are highly educated and thus very liberal.

Oh, here for our readers is an excellent article "How the GOP Became the Party of the Rich," in Rolling Stone Magazine. This is an eye opener and info I didn't even know before hand. http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/how-the-gop-became-the-party-of-the-rich-20111109
American Woman February 01, 2014 at 01:03 AM
Wait are you being Lyn or Jeff? I cant keep up. BTW Kleinstein, I know a lot of republicans that are not rich. I know a lot of liberals who are uneducated too. 70s democrats are now republicans, working class. Liberals are just fools. You are exactly what this article is about. People who went from unemployment to disability. If you are so disabled how do you sit and type all day. Why not get a job in an office or something. You can enter data. You cant do it in your underwear like you do now, you will to clean up a bit. GET OFF YOUR COMPUTER AND GO TO BED IF YOU ARE DISABLED!!!! Your disability is your gift to be so unreasonable.
American Woman February 01, 2014 at 01:04 AM
Lyn said that right wing wackos are racist bigots. Um KKK mean anything to you? Do your homework.
American Woman February 01, 2014 at 01:06 AM
Obama had the lowest viewers in his state of the union in 5 years. What a joke! Poor guy cant even buy viewers with his entitlement packages any longer. Asshat!
American Woman February 01, 2014 at 01:13 AM
For Lyn Kleiner http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/govbeat/wp/2014/01/31/conservatives-outnumber-liberals-in-47-states/?utm_content=bufferbeb2f&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer
Antonio February 01, 2014 at 12:46 PM
AW, Lets see; you said I was "on the teet," now I'm disabled? The Republicans can't win a national (President/VP) election because of demographics. Conservative outnumber liberals in a lot of states. Tell me something I don't know. The liberal states have huge population numbers compared to the Southern and Midwestern (backward, racist, hickvilles) states.

So lyn is Jeff, thanks for confirming loser! Sheesh!
American Woman February 02, 2014 at 01:41 PM
You are on the teet, you are not disabled, you are online 24/7. That doesnt sound disabled to me. Now if you were blind and deaf, then maybe, no arms and legs, ok, you are mentally an ass which by my standards, just makes you an ass no disabled. They way you vote sort of makes you handicap though!
American Woman February 02, 2014 at 01:42 PM
Democrats have been using blacks for years to get elected. They are using them. Thats it! They keep them down down down. Try lifting up minorities without giving them stuff. A job is a good start.
American Woman February 02, 2014 at 01:43 PM
I think somewhere down the line, some republican hurt Jeffs little feelings and now he is just hell bent on making sure democrats get praise for the rest of his days. Can you spell sissy?

I think Kleiner likes Obama because he is girly like himself. He wears womens jeans. I think my biceps are bigger than his.
American Woman February 02, 2014 at 07:48 PM
I saw a mini van with a sticker that said, "Women for Obama" I thought of Kleiner when I saw it. I bet he has one.
DB February 02, 2014 at 08:26 PM
Sounds like his fan club......

DB you interrupting AW's conversation with herself. Although I understand why you intervened, it is rather boring.
American Woman February 08, 2014 at 12:20 AM
Jeff is Lyn the name you use when you wear womens clothes?
