Steve Posted March 1, 2012 Report Share Posted March 1, 2012 That's a HUGE load of you-know-what Stevo. Anyway, the reasons for not trying to shuffle civilian union workers are at least 2: 1.) their benefits are contractual obligations/bargaining agreements, whereas the military is not unionized and has no bargaining agreements: 2.) union employees support Barry, whereas I'd guess that most military personnel have no use for Barry and won't vote for him. (Recall how it was Republicans who demanded that the votes of foreign-serving military voters be counted 4 years ago?) It's a take-off on Barry's signature "class warefare" campaign message: "I will not allow the 1/2 of the citizens who don't pay taxes to shoulder the burden of the 1/2 of the citizens who don't pay their fair share". Something like that, anyway, eh? HH (Thinking Stevo was kidnapped and now being forced to send messages from some dark, cold room in Pyongyang.) HH, we missed you around here. Hope all is well. My conserative brother is dumbstruck with me. Thinks I'm smoking the wacky tobaccy. Anyway, Republicans are more hypocritical in that they are always touting their love and respect for our soldiers and have no problem taking away benefits. Dems do it obviously but its the Repubs that have the reputation (because they tout themselves as such) and yell from the rooftops about our fighting men. It was a Republican president who had our soldiers ill equipped and overworked in two wars and the Repubs in Congress went along with it. As for them not voting for Obama, the military has always supported Republicans more than Dems. If universities can be accused of fostering liberalism, it can then be argued that he military environment does the same for conservatism. One man's class warfare is another man's conept of sharing responsibility for each other. Its not class warfare when conservatives start demonizing immigrants and using welfare as a wedge issue between socio-economic and ethic groups though? lol. C'mon HH, I can get you out of Slytherin house and in with us good guys in Gryffindor (you won't understand unless you're a Harry Potter fan ) Leave the zeros and get with the heroes. Leave the right wing and get with a right thing. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
