The Union Worker, the scourge of the Universe…

Ahhhhh, fellow haters. Take for instance professor Don Boudreaux, a Free Market Economist at George Mason University. Recently he was attacked for his nasty Capitalist buttrixing by some kid about Dons website Café Hayek, namely it was a place where tenured US professors lobby ferociously against protecting US jobs.

Sir Don responded, and among other things that caught the ~h's hairy eyeball was the Doctors statement that trade changes the pattern of domestic employment; it doesn't destroy domestic jobs on net". Well said. Meaning let the banks and the auto makers fail and the market will self correct. This opens the door to a discussion of labor, and Unions in particular. While I am sure most labor will dismiss a 'tenured economist professor' they will champion the Unions.

the Hatriolic has long held that Unions were a scourge on the American landscape. A long time ago they had their place, but now…

Where else can you go to work and earn $75,000 a year to screw lug nuts on a new Chevy. I’m sorry, but the pay needs to fit the labor, and in any other industry without Union bully's at the top the pay would be in the $10/hour range. And you better believe those high labor cost are passed on to you, the customer. These ridiculous labor controlled cost are why automobiles cost as much as they do now.

And, isn’t it a coincidence that BHO is bailing the auto makers out?

Let them fail. Let the market self correct. Who knows, would we replace the lost jobs of failed US Auto makers with new, better jobs? Maybe a new more financially sound automaker might rise from the ashes without the Union worker.

Also, as far as "open trade" are we only trading manufacturing jobs with the retail jobs to sell the goods made elsewhere? Same pay...

My point - the government is interfering with self correction and we will prolong our agony. Especially by having the American taxpayer pay the Union workers wages.

... and before I get crucified for downing the union worker (so save your crayon letters) I'll go on record to state 'Bravo Zulu' for the people who took advantage of unions for great Pay & Benefits. But please also check your history: the majority of Union workers do not vote for themselves, meaning they don't generally think for themselves for risk of losing out on their jobs (check the voting rosters for Carter & Clinton). Also don't forget that Carl Marx and Adolf Hitler harnessed the union workers first to fight for 'equality' in their socialist climb to the top.

Last, how much innovation and ambition has been killed by the Unions and Gov't jobs, clearly the biggest employers in the US?

Prince, Prophet, Savior, Rock Star…


the following is a repost by the Hatriolic

the Hatriolic is not a conspiracy theorist, but he finds the following new headlines interesting in regards to the state of our Country – these United States:

White House Accidentally E-Mails to Reporters Story That Maliki Supports Obama Iraq Withdrawal Plan

World Trip Could Push Rock-Star Persona to New Heights...

Will speak at Berlin's Victory Column...
Sarkozy Session Set for Paris on July 25...

Because America is soooo lazy, Obama will win.

Why?, you ask.

Because yours hateful has observed that the majority of Americans would rather watch movies, TV, and play video games of exiting life events rather than live them. You see, being an adventurous soul like my little bitty self requires effort. If a hateful soul wants to hike the wilderness, he has to get off his @$$ and pack his backpack, plan where he will go, leave a trip plan (most important!), get in the car, and go. Not just once, but a lot! Fishing… lets see… research tackle, practice knots, find the right spot, and fish. Fly… research flying lessons… yougetthepoint.

But, too many people watch Batman catch all the fish whilst he’s backpacking in the Rockies (ummm, did I just cross too many wires?). Ohhhh, y’all leave the movie theater all tired and nasty like you did it yourself. Plethora’s of kids play war games on X-Box instead of getting some war surplus, dressing up, and running around the neighborhood playing Tet Offensive.

Which, speaking of Vietnamese… brings me back to my original point. As a hater, the Hatriolic (me, the illustrious), is a conservative. For him, this has been a lackluster campaign. On the Democrat side we had two exiting people slugging it out, making headlines, creating all kinds of fuss… and we get…


You see, with Obama’s Rock Star Tour befitting a Prince (you’d think this guy was Diana for hooples sake)

He’s exciting.

Obama is the Video Game. He’s the Box Office sellout. He’s the Mohammad rep at the Pilgrimage…

Johnny, well… he’s just downright boring. Never mind that he is for the very items that will get this country out of this slump – drilling, anti-abortion, appointing the right Supreme Court judges, tax breaks.

But to vote for McCain, you have to actually think for yourself rather than get carried away with the moment. Research his background. And weigh the options.

But the voting college heads, the fringe, the Blacks, and the idiots who only voted for G. Dubya cause he had a Ted Koppel appeal will pull the trigger on Obama.

And they really won’t give any thought at all.

After all, isn’t he a Rock Star?
