  •  I've always wondered why unions (2+ / 0-)

    never used their members' dues and pension funds to purchase controlling interests in the companies which employ their memberships. I've also wondered why, back when unions had considerable clout in the Democratic party, during a time of Democratic control of Congress, they didn't wiled their influence to push for tax incentives to reward companies with employee stock ownership plans, and penalize companies that transferred the fruit of workers' labor to lazy, leeching investors who collect money for other peoples' work.

    Once upon a time, unions had the numbers and the strength to shit all over the likes of Mitt Romney. Too bad union leadership chose to squander it while feathering their own nests.

    Al Qeada is a faith-based initiative.
