This legislation simply gives the choice of the worker to join the union or not. What's wrong with that? I thought you liberals loved choice....choice in abortion, gay marriage....but I guess choice whether or not to join a union is too much.

I'm starting to think Lair isn't even a liberal. Just a culmination of everything wrong with liberals but none of their positives.

He's basically the liberal version of an ignorant GOP redneck posting in the comment section of online news articles. At least most of the liberal guys on here are intelligent and can present a coherent argument.

Apparently people (republican voters) are dumb enough to think that they're now free to have a high-paying union job without belonging to a union (because US corps are KNOWN for paying wages they don't have to pay).

It's a race to the bottom, and the union haters are paving the way.

Anybody have an ETA on the length of time it will take for all those union-free companies to turn Detroit's economy around?

You people wouldn't recognize a conservative if one slapped you in your collective vaginas.

Like I said, I smile everytime I hear a union worker lost their job. I clap when I find out they lost their retirement, and I do both when I find out they lost everything. Blood sucking thugs.

Please expand what you believe to be the makeup of a true conservative. I'm genuinely curious.

It would be done a lot sooner if the illegal aliens would be deported for doing jobs without permits, without liability insurance, without paying for a business license, taxes, being paid substandard wages in unsafe conditions and making the US pick up the tab for their medical needs.

But hey........the Hispanic community is the fastest growing voting block and a politician will do anything for a vote ........right?

Next move is getting an emergency manager to take over Detroit. My guess, 20 years. You know Detroit is the poster child for leftists.

I mean, we're just free-loading on all the great things the British Crown gave us over here. The whole eastern seaboard free of Indian aggression, for one. We should have never left.

A true conservative claps when people lose their jobs (because they belong to unions) advocates religious control over our government, hates education, wants minimum wage abolished, is afraid of gays, brown people, any religion other than evangelical chirstianity, and thinks women are nothing more than babymaking cumdumpsters who should be chained to a stove.

Amiclose?

You're so simple-minded baby Jesus cries every time you vote.
