  •  It's a simple idea (10+ / 0-)

    Someone who has racked up billions of dollars obviously has the conviction that that is a good thing, a real accomplishment - and one that should make anything possible. They do NOT like to take NO! for an answer.

    Unions are all about telling the rich and powerful NO!

    The idea that money can't buy some things is a contradiction of all they believe at a visceral, emotional level. Behind all the lies, distortions and other rationalizations why unions are a bad thing, unnecessary, etc. - that's what it really comes down to: the anger of a spoiled toddler who doesn't want to take NO! for an answer.

    That's why these people are sore winners. It's not just enough for them to get their way - they have to crush anything that threatens the ability to always get what they want.

    "No special skill, no standard attitude, no technology, and no organization - no matter how valuable - can safely replace thought itself."
