Not shooting the messenger (-; well I didn't anyway ;-) hmmm. I believe labor to be noble, his definition of labor doesn't seem to have helped his disposition.

    And if you do, expect to have your legs broken.

    What, no comments from Komrad Reston ?

    Mafiosa pure and simple. 'Labor' and 'unions' are not the same thing. Unions are a form of monopoly, and like most collectivist misadventures, the groups that are formed turn into beasts once they have the power to destroy.
     -- E Archer, NYC     
    The mafia infiltrated Teamsters and the current Socialistic thuggies of the current labor movement have nothing to do with liberty.
     -- Wendell, Juneau, AK     
    All Unions are crooked, both private and public. The Union Leaders use their members to swing elections, sometimes they just out right steal elections for those that back them in the government. Unions started off with good intentions and to get rid of sweat shops, but ended up being bullies hurting people with baseball bats and just beating those up that would disagree with them. Bobby Kennedy asked Hoffa how did he think the American people would look at him if they knew he was a Communist? Now Unions Leaders think they are the most powerful organization there is and they use their members donations to feel their own pockets and very little of it goes into the pension plans. Obama backs them because he wants the teachers to teach things we do not want taught to our children. One of them is the booklet that he and Arne Duncan gave out to teach children in kindergarten or first grade, that Socialism is the best way of life. The name of the booklet is Building Fluency through Practice and Performance. They are using a changed version of the Preamble of the Constitution. Look it up you will be as shocked as I was.
