Tell it Uncle Bill.
From our local paper, about the recent transit worker strike in Philadelphia:
Even the unions want to be insulated from any cost increases that may result from the health care insurance overhaul.Quote:
Rendell and Brady had announced a tentative agreement late Friday, but it fell apart Saturday over the union's call ... for assurance that members would not be affected if the company's costs increased with possible passage of a national health reform plan.
read ub's post and tell me this thread is not digging up the past. he cites "the Carter years", DOES HE NOT?
please cite ONE post you have made concerning the democratic party or the people you paint with the broad brush "liberal" which was not negative.-Paul
Gosh Paul, I would have thought you would have grasped the salient point, rather than to sink back into the wallowing of your fellow Obama followers.
I realize you and Iowa Keith are indebted to your unions for keeping you employed over the years, but I always thought it carried some intelligence with those beliefs, not falling on the sword for for an administration that would as soon send you a dead fish as award you with a watch at retirement.
If you missed the salient point about the Carter administration originating that do-nothing bureaucracy that still exists, despite never achieving one damned iota towards it's proposed goal...and how THAT might relate to the various bills being proposed by the present administration and congress, then I apologize for not spelling it out. Good grief, if it sailed over your head, how could it possibly have been understood by Roger?
I'll try to be more eplicit next time.
first, i am not indebted to my Union. i have enjoyed 34 years of continuous employment because i work for a company that is aggressive in seeking out new contracts and because we deliver our product on time and under budget. it is a product that is in great demand and is probably the reason you are not attempting to insult me in Russian right now.i work hard and get exemplary performance reviews annually. i have done well and look forward to finishing up my career there.
i thank you for your concern for my lack of intelligence, ability to grasp the written word and the ability to understand when someone is calling me an idiot. please know that i consider my skills to be sufficient in this regard and that i share the same concerns for you.
and by the way, i think that the fact you brought up the Carter administration originating the DOE without mentioning all the others since that have perpetuated and, indeed, added layer upon layer of bureaucracy to it is quite typical of your posts.
everything you rail against did not happen over the past 10 months. it took decades to come to fruition under many different administrations. you can ignore that fact if you wish, but that is plain for all to see.
in case my point has gone over YOUR head, i am not a fool, i don't like being called one, and won't put up with it.-Paul

Touche'. So please stop your attemps at insinuating I am one.
History will certainly determine which of us has earned that title.
Ducknwork, you crack me up! JD
