    Worked for a compressed air company and had to carry a big 200 hp unit over to a power plant in Alabama. They were renting the unit. When we backed up to the dock we jumped out of the truck and began to unchain the unit from the truck. We were quickly told to stop what we were doing. We had to wait for union workers to come unchain the unit from the truck. But they were on break. So we had to sit and wait for them. Then we had to wait for a union fork lift driver to come and unload it.

    My gosh, We just wanted to get the job done in a timely manner, but couldnt be cause of the union.

    THe list I would have written as child 40 something years ago would be much longer than the one I would write today as a US citizen.
    The list of what I hate is much longer. Before you tell me to hit the road,my US born husband just won't
    go yet.

    I suppose many things, including the entitlement attitude but when they charged me $200 to plug in my laptop for me at a trade show, that solidified it.

    BTW, BIG congrats on that! Very cool! How was the timing? Were you allowed to vote November last?
    as for the hate, see my post to Murral. Two peas in a pod you two are.

    I have tried, I really have. Everytime I see these people (rich people) crying about how they have to give a little more, I have flashbacks and get pizzed all over again. If I had that type of money, Koch brothers, buffet, romney, it wouldn't bother me one bit because that means that I was making money if I had a high tax bill. Ya can't take it with you.

    Unless you are on the government tit, you can't spend other people's money nor should you worry about it.

    I really think we should go to a flat sales tax/use tax. that way everybody pays the same rate. Eliminate all loopholes and deductions/credits. Nothing gets taken out of your check, what you make is your money to take home and spend as you see fit. That would probably encourage investing since you will not be taxed on your investment income, only what you buy. Now back to our original post.
