IMHO, the Democratic Party isn't co-opted by the Communists. They are EXTREMELY capitalist. Just ask the Clintons. And Al Gore. And John Edwards. I don't think that THEY will lead the masses in burning down the mansions.

Sure they will OE, just not their mansions. You're incorrect on them being capitalists too. They're socialists... national socialists. They'll work with capitalists, but only to make a "better" world. You only have to worry if you're not their right kind of people.

Just got around to finishing it. Fabulous, your best work ever!

What a bunch of 12th. grade idiot horseshit. No wonder you love it Kasha. Ku coo ka chu you dolt. Suffice it to say that the small minds that see the dialectic of capitalism, National Socialism, and socialism, unionism through the same lens that 6MB see it ought to be taken out behind the stock exchange, where their true god resides and shot in their pea brains with constitutionally issued firearms. The only thing he forgot to mention was the oversleeping drunk checker player, on his knees asking god how this could have happened to him, two bunks down named George Bush.

I will dance around my maypole this evening and take stock of the enriched lives lived by 10's of millions of Americans due to the power of labor unions, and laugh at the drowsy assholes like Kasha and 6meatloaf who wouldn't know a better life if it was tickling their prostate.

How long will it take Strawman to figure out who he really just insulted? Place your bets, folks!

He shall soon contract foot-in-mouth disease.

I think "penis-in-ass" disease is far more likely, Ray.

Posted by: Spanky on May. 1, 2007

aww, Straw has said worse things than that.

And, don't forget I always say them with love in my heart.

LMAO, maybe it's the day, or following on the heals of Anni's hilarious piece at 6MB, but I allowed myself to indulge in the witless diatribe that is Strawman. Surely the jig is up? This is a characature of the left. Who's writing this? RR? El Mondo?

Unions, gotta love 'em. My brother is a member in good standing of the UAW. He's a funny fellow. One of the things he loves to say is, "We could make a Lexus. We choose not to." Of course the funny part is the truth in that statement. The old auto industry is dead. We're watching the death spasms now. The unions and bad management have killed them. The same thing is going on in our cities, where the city managers buy off the public employee unions with grotesquely funded pension plans, where a senior public servant actually loses money if he keeps working. How does a city like San Diego, or a business like the auto industry go bankrupt? Just so. Workers of the world unite!

BTW, my brother submitted his buyout papers last month, along with the President of his local. Guess who's staying on the job? LMAO, I'm glad I like those German cars.

Geez, Straw, stop being such a loquacious bore.

I must confess: Twarn't me. Alas, I am but a 4 Meat Buffet, yet to ascend to the 5 Meatdom status.

But, I do wish I wrote it. Seems pretty dead-on to me.

Oh... if any f****r substitutes "inch" for "meat" in my previous comment: I will find a way to deliver an ass-kicking via FedEx, UPS, or local mafia, whoever gets there bestest for the cheapest.

My alter ego shalt not be mocked... and he ascended past 5 "meat"dom status many, many years ago (no prosthetic jokes, dammit!).

Not the 6MB thing you idiot. The obvious put-up job that is "Strawman".

Bought that pump eh?

Posted by: Casca on May. 2, 2007

i'm completely lost. who said who said what?

Posted by: annika on May. 2, 2007

Oh. Ooooohhhh. All of a sudden it makes sense now.

Naw... I don't think that's a put on. I've heard so much of that same stuff working for a universtiy, and those folks meant it. Should've seen the "lecture" I got once back when I was working electric/light techie for the campus opera house. Got a shot at a rock concert gig, 'cept I'd have to give up around a quarter of the pay for the union fees.

I wasn't in the damn union. We were students working for the university. My question prompting the lecture was "why do I have to pay the dues?".

20 minute lecture. My ending question was "Okay. So... why do I have to pay the goddamn dues? It's not the local giving me the job, it's the travelling show's management." (Actually, I found out later that it would've been the venue, not the band's management, but I didn't know that at the time).

Never got another invite to work a travelling show again.

Took a while to get over that. But anyway, since stagework wasn't my career choice, no long term harm was done. Still, though... I was steamed. I was supposed to pay dues to a Union I didn't belong to? WTF??

So, Unions... I readily concede their contributions to improving worker conditions and redefining worker/management relations, but let's not pretend everything's all shiny, happy, and unequivacably good about them. There're downsides to the upsides.

Anyway, Cas: Pump? What, weights on a string aren't good enough for some folks?

Posted by: ElMondoHummus on May. 2, 2007


I agree, not all shinny and unequivicably good. But, IMHO, far more good has come as a result of unions than bad.
