Thought for the Day

Published:

A unionized public employee, a tea party activist and a CEO are sitting at a table with a plate of a dozen cookies in the middle of it. The CEO takes 11 of the cookies, turns to the tea partier and says, "Watch out for that union guy... he wants a piece of your cookie!

I heard this one differently.

The CEO took two cookies, the TEA person took two cookies, and the Union person took two cookies. Then the Union person demanded the CEO and TEA person give up 50% of their cookies to pay the Union retirement benefits and health care. When both refused, the Union person hit the CEO over the head with a printed Hitler sign and dumb-slapped the TEA person.

I think my version fits the current scene perfectly.

It takes a mighty good propaganda campaign to convince the American public that unions are to blame for the country's economic collapse. Kudos to the propagandists in their success!

The public sector unions are not being blamed for the collapsing economy. The public sector unions are in short order one of the main causes for most states' budgetary woes, unsupportable pension and healthcare packages to retired or "injured on the job" for the rest of their lives, you know a "PONZI SCHEME" on the backs of the remaining taxpayer base. Alot of those retirees double dip in addition.

Oh yeah before GM and Chrysler got bailed out, what was their biggest monthly cost (expense)?????????????? You guessed it, pension and bennies to the retired union workers. Not materials not shipping not salaries not warehouse space................

Unless you're a CEO or a union man, you're gonna need to learn to make your own cookies.

I don't think anyone is blaming the unions for the economic collapse. The Democrats have all of that blame for themselves. What they are blaming the unions for doing is refusing to help the States ease their financial burden by assuming some of the cost themselves. This will allow the States to meet their financial burden without raising taxes on unemployed or under-enployed people.
