    To answer your question, yes. The 1% is about $388,000 and up.

    Mngundog, are you a union member? I work in a profession that the unions have helped practically destroy.

    Tcfarmer, but liberals only refer the greedy, selfish conservatives when they refer to 1%ers. So what do you call rich liberals?

    I am not a Union member, I have been a part of two Union votes, voted yes once and no once, if there was a vote a my current job I would vote no again. There are some very well run companies who treat their employees fairly and their are some very corrupt companies that strong arm their employees I've been a part of both. As far as the President of NEA making almost $400K, I would agree that is to much, but I would expect with legal teams, financial managers etc., that they would have many employees clearing $100K a year. Heck the 25 year old kid who shingled my house last month made $800 a day.

    [QUOTEThey voted to be in a union!][/QUOTE]
    They are not given a whole lot of other choices . Have watched how unions operate. Here's 1 an example. Cross the picket line and before you punch in for the day,,,make an appointment at the local body shop

    let me tell you a quick story about how unions operate...one of my friends/co workers WAS our shop steward...he and his wife have been trying to have kids but to no avail, so they decided to become foster parents, with the eventual hope of adopting the kids now in their custody...

    our union told David to attend a rally at a local casino they were picketing and be prepared to be arrested....WTH....David had enough sense to know that any arrest no matter how minor the violation would result in he and his wife losing their license to be foster/adoptive parents...

    what organization do you know of would knowingly send their reps to a rally knowing full well that they would be arrested, what's next..stand in front of the police or the national guard and face physical harm or worse just to further one's political agenda...

    Why should they be "prepared to be arrested" when we are supposed to have the right to assembly?

    Perhaps they were going to be trespassing or participating in some other illegal activity (not exactly unheard of when it comes to the behavior of union activists).
    Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state.
