    Panem et circenses (“Bread and Games”). Been around since the Romans ruled the world. Hasn’t changed since then. We are stupid, and we know it, but we can’t focus on the important things. I pity us…

    Didn’t hear one rightie complain that the overpaid underworked Ref union was going back to work by popular demand.

    People can be stupid little animals and the ones at the top have learned to exploit every human weakness.

    “What’s important is major league American Sports with decent refs, and since that seems to be union refs, then union refs it must be,”
    .
    Most Union workers do more important things for industry and for the country than you want to give them credit for, far more important than sports…there for union workers it must be.

    In the same way that libs don’t know the difference between Public Sector and Private Sector Unions, they don’t know the difference between Mandatory Union Membership and Right To Work. They are only pro-choice when it comes to abortion.

    BTW, there’s a possibility ABC’s cameramen and techs will strike during the debate. Just wanted to throw that out there..

    It is not the value of the labors in question, but the value of the currencies by which those labors are exchanged. The most pressing question is how to take advantage of the labors of others without laboring one’s self. That is where monetary policy meets its greatest demands. Selling enlightened expertism as having some value is the usual solution.

    If there were to be any “reality check” changes to this strip the last panel would have the woman saying “to the mall!”

    I have taught in union states and NEVER been required to join a union. On the other hand I’ve seen union members denied jobs because they were union members in several states….hmmmm wonder how that happened..

    As a non-union Television Technician in NYC, I occasionally had gigs in Union Shops, like Networks. The Unions permitted me to work there, on a temporary basis. They took a cut of my pay. It wasn’t considered “dues” it didn’t enroll me in the Union, and I got no benefits from it. But you’re right— I wasn’t denied the work. I just had to pay the vig.

    My post stands.

    My grandfather was a butcher. When the grocery store he worked for went bankrupt, the Meatcutter’s Union found him tempory jobs so he could make ends meet and eventually helpped him find another permant position. His union dues went paying his and his family’s health insurance (even when he wasn’t working well before the existance of COBRA) and his pension.
    .
    He was never on unempolyment, his kids all went to private school (not a drain on taxpayers), he didn’t order electric wheelchairs at Medicare’s expense just because he could. And when he died his estate was taxed a pretty penny because he still had savings left to live for another 15-20 years.
    .
    Now tell me again why unions, who kept people like him from having to rely on welfare government, are so bad at a time when America needs to spend less?
