I could conveniently flummox you on many of your points but I choose one major one. Have you, uhhhhh, happened to check out the UAW opulent club for Union officers only? All of a sudden they're talking about selling it. Hmmmmm...........wonder if the announcement to sell it was based on a major news story on TV? BTW it's worth in the tens of millions even in today's economy. Oh and one last thing, you haven't told me how much the income of the Presidents or Heads of Unions make? Best get out your calculator.
I'll tell you this. With virtually every line you write, which is your God given right (God given in this co0untry at least, certainly not in hundreds of others around the globe), I hope you know you're digging yourself a hole of which you'll never be able to extricate yourself.
i honestly believe, based on your own writings, my friends on this site with whom I strongly disagree on occasion, will back me up on that one.
BTW, one more thing. I was around (not that long ago either) when COPE started. Yes, it is to provide money for unions to use for political purposes. But is it the only money the Unions use or that purpose? COPE was no more than a political move that proved to be (at least in great part) unnecessary. Not even a fraction....so my wise friend, kindly show me the facts of from whence the millions and millions both before COPE and even during COPE originate. I know of not one
Union member that has or ever would VOLUNTARILY contributed to COPE!
Oh and yeah, I retired from Big Business...actually a huge business. I was a New York State Police Firearms Instructor, I'm just rolling in the dough. Oh and I've known about 16,000 sworn law enforcement officers.
As many know, I'm also a BIG TIME student of history and that especially includes the history of US labor unions. In short, I have forgot probably as much if not more than you'll ever know on the subject.....and that's even if you're a Union big shot! I even taught a course that was heavily associated with the history of Unions in the US.
You wanna' play......let's do it! BUT if you do we're going to do so, I'll only deal in FACTS, not innuendos or opinions or even politics so you don't have to worry about that. So start your research and remember, research constitutes all sides.
I'd bet a year's income that as of this moment, you couldn't even tell me who started the first Civil Service Commission in the US. Of course you can look it up in a fraction of a second but I've a feeling you're going to be looking up a whole lot of stuff if you wish to continue on this track.
If you wish not to do so that's fine. Just drop the subject. Okay?
And there's no hard feelings....at least on my part. I may stand my ground as those on this Board know, but I don't take it personally. One of my favorite people in this world is AR and I don't remember the last time we agreed (but I'm sure there were one or two things.
