There is nothing in the Constitution about child seat belt laws or prescription drugs.

Only 7% of Detroit 8th graders are proficient readers.

Maybe the union teachers have something to do with it?

Maybe you should switch over to actual audio production, on TV shows or in post, which can't be outsourced

Of course then, you'd have to join the Guild, or work non-union only - which gets old quick, when everyone around you is raking it in on union shoots, getting benefits, pension etc

Well, I'm a Master Technician and head up the repairs, which can't yet be outsourced. But my production bros are gonna get screwed.

Nice to hear you have a cushy union gig! I hope it gets yanked from you and you have to compete in a real market of skills. May the best man win.

Yeah, I hope you lose your job too.


I was just calling for fair competition in the free market, without union bullshit and rules.

I compete in that market, as do so many other competent people.

Did you know I could not enter a San Francisco studio to do work until a union rep showed up, just to oversee and watch? Do you know how much of my time that wasted? And he didn't even watch me work!!!

F*#ked up, bra!

And there is nothing in the Constitution about unions or workers rights, despite how you'd like to twist the language therein. Current Federal Law works. As does State law.

You know, there's nothing about having political parties in the constitution and many of the founding fathers were against them

I'm thinking they were right

Word, my commie brother. Word.

In fact, they warned against a 2 party system if I'm not mistaken...

Sometimes Karl is spot-on.

TGT...It aint the teachers....Maybe it has to do with the fact that the parents don't give a crap about education or maybe the parents have to work 3 jobs to make ends meet and don't have time to mentor their kids...Attacking the teachers is just a Koch brothers rue to pay teachers minimum wage so the stinkin rich can squirrel a few more dollars away...But maybe you are part of the 2%...?

Unions are democracy for workers, and logical extensions of guaranteed 1st amendment rights

Again, try educating yourself - Germany's auto manufacturing industry is fully unionized, and thriving

Or, accept that the only way to survive is to lower your standards - your call.


Apples unt Oranges. Germany operates differently than the US. It is mostly Socialist. Also, they have almost zero defense budgets because we defend them.

Why not compare us to China? They're doing good, right?

TGT..I might add that the scandinavian countries are doing a better job of educating their children than the US is...Maybe it has to do with being progressive socialist countries that provide national healthcare for their citizens....I know this goes against what Fox news tells you to think...

Make no mistake there is a war against public education in America. It is fueled by corporate interests and perpetrated by conservative republicans.
Squeeze the life out of the education budget and blame the teachers.
The goal is scuttle liberal arts education and to further the ascendancy of private faith based or military schools.

And to promote ignorance and uniformity, stifle creativity and critical thinking - all those things that make good conservative voters.

What are you saying here Blue? That all union members are thugs? That because there are bad actors who are union members we should deny others their constitutional rights?


Yes, pretty much.

Wow. Just wow.

Bluering: "In fact, they warned against a 2 party system if I'm not mistaken."

BZZT you are mistaken. What we have today was a byproduct of having a presidential vs parliamentary form of govt. Madison laid it out well in the Federalist Papers #10 when he argued why a country as large as ours, with so many different factions, required a 2 party system.

If you think it's bad now, can you imagine if we had 5, 10, heck, a herd of parties as dysfunctional as our 2 parties are today? ((((SHUDDERS))))

it isnt the repubs calling for the debt ceiling to be lifted now is it. No, that would be Obama. He SAID he would cut the deficit in half his first term and now asks for extensions on the natl credit card... uh huh....

so he just makes it up as he goes along then, because he DID PROMISE to cut our deficit in half his first term.. I wonder if i can get my debt ceiling lifted on my cards? Two mill should suffice. I wonder how they will react when i call them to inform them due to me being unable to pay my current debt that i would like it to be tripled??

I realize this trillions of dollar debt is never going to be paid off by actual monies. But to just keep sinking doesnt seem to be the logical stance- at least thats the way the rest of the worlds businesses act.

But i do know that when your so broke as we are, giving away monies to ANY ONE else besides our own isnt logical either.
