    In this particular case though, having Michael Moore as a spokesperson for labor unions creates a bit of a quandry for the unions.

    In the public sector, most union members are Michael Moore worshipping leftists. In the private sector, most union members think of themselves as more conservative or at least moderate thinking people who like hunting, believe in God and resent government entities dictating too much of their social lives.

    Well, you can't have it both ways. Yet that is exactly what the labor unions have done. By going after both the public sector and the private sector of American workers, organized labor has shown that they really don't give a rat's behind about the individual beliefs of the American worker.

    Most private sector union workers are disgusted by Michael Moore and what he stands for, yet they are now expected to support what Communist leaning persons such as Michael Moore have to say because of the "brotherhood". All of a sudden, blue collar workers who like to hunt, bowl and collect firearms are having to realize that they are also being associated with homosexuals, pediphiles and extreme leftist public sector workers who want to take all guns away from all American citizens and shun anyone who would ever wear bowling shoes or camo clothing.

    Can these two extremes representing organized labor come together in harmony? Will bowling be successfully replaced with polo and designer camo clothing become fashionable in both social worlds?

    Yes the wealthy have a right to get out of paying their fair share. I think we all need to get with the program. The chart in the link shows it plain as day. And Rush needs one of those shakes - gotta spread the wealth you know.

    Hey, Mikey Moore. Send some of your money my way will you. I have a right to it. PM me and I will give you my account number so you can wire it. My union says you owe me at least 1 million for pain and suffering from watching your schmuckumentary and having to look at your ugly mug when you are on tv.

    Otherwise, you have the right to kiss my @$$.

    That chart is whats wrong with America. Everything on the left is a government program to give money/benefits to someone who did not earn it. Everything on the right is a tax against someone who has worked hard and made some money. The haves do not owe anything to the have-nots. The have-nots need to work harder, and not expect someone to give things to them.

    So Somolia should be the model for America? Survival of the fittest and all. Sounds good to me. What are we going to do with all the ner-do-wells?

    I want some of Moore's money. It's my right. He has way more than I, so it is only fair, right?

    Somalia is governed by Muslims who took control from Communists who think more like you and the other leftists on this site think. Somalia is a type of country our large cities could easily devolve into if we continue to allow so much socialism in our workforce.

    The model for the U.S. is the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. If we can possibly get back to that model, we will have a chance of surviving.

    Anything to support your fear based model for America's future - or just the usual.

    Fear rules - facts ignored - typical far right propaganda. The shock doctrine at work.

    Oh vey, weren't you the guys, like Moore, that think the world will just about end if state public workers lose collective bargaining rights? Thanks to Carter, fed union workers don't have them. Yet, they still live and thrive. Give us all a break, you and Robo.

    Just the usual.

    Look at the history of hysterical predictions of the future and see them for what they really are; paths that were avoided by showing where they were leading.

    Books, movies, and now Internet blogs all provide a service for peering into posible futures so that we may avoid them. Orwells 1984 had us on the watch for Big Brother, and until recently, we avoided Big Brother for the most part. The Terminator gives us pause as to turning too much authority over to artificial intelligence and just may keep us from making mistakes in that direction.

    That is all we do on Internet sites such as this. We create plausable scenarios in order to avoid certain outcomes from going down certain paths. The more the scenarios are based on history repeating itself, the more we should take pause.

    The historical facts are that all previous empires have fallen and no government is immune from destruction due to the greed and elitist attitudes of government leaders. The U.S. cannot sustain doing business the way we are current doing business. We need to stop hoping while letting government change for the obvious worse and briing on some real change that will get us back on our feet as a stable and powerful nation.
