All in favor, say “AYE” !
Unions can only be dimantled by the people who pay the dues....and it’s coming.
So what’s the problem?
Gee, The First True Words Out Of His Mouth!
The GOP should send Obama a thank you note for disseminating this positive message.
Cept I’m in favor of having ALL union leaders taken waaay off shore and be made to walk the plank
And by “dismantle”, he means
“stop using the guns of government to coerce people into supporting unions and let people choose to join or not”...
that’s “dismantling” them, because people will not choose to join if they actually have that choice.
I don’t know about trade unions, but all so-called government workers unions should be abolished. These unions are organizing against “We the people.” We the people are not the robber barons of past centuries. When you organize against us, you are organizing against the true sovereigns of this nation.
The constitution does not say we the government. It says we the people! The government and the government unions are lording it over us. Government workers unions are communism in action.
We were all created equal by our creator and endowed with certain inalienable rights, including the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This includes (among an unlimited array of other God given rights) the rights to individual liberty, equality under the law, economic freedom, the right to enjoy the fruits of our own labors, the right to self-governance, etc, etc. The government has no constitutional authority to demand we pay expensive taxpayer paid salaries, benefits, pensions, etc, to government workers. They are not entitled to the fruits of our labor. They are not entitled to special consideration by the government. There is no ruling class under the constitution. Government workers should be willing to work for what we the people are willing and able to pay them or they should find another line of work. Government workers demanding and getting lavish salaries, pensions, perks, benefits, limos, planes, offices, etc, paid out of the government treasury (or else!) is not the way.
What did they do, stop paying their dues?
Not to worry, Romney will step up and save the day for unions by recommending a union solidarity bill or something just as stupid.
“Obama: Republicans Want To Dismantle Unions”
Well duh! Have a dog biscuit, O.
Monday accused Republicans of trying decrease the power of unions.
This is bad how????
I too fail to see any problem. Let the unions sink or swim on a level playing field. That said, they would have no chance.
I thoroughly despise the unions (public and private) for what they have become. A pack of thuggish leaches.
Dismantling the unions is the first step in saving America from communism. Unions are the foundation that communism is built upon.
If Obama gets four more years he will unionize the military.
Just think of all those mandatory union dues flowing into the pockets of the rabid leftists.
During the revolutionary stage, nothing excites commies more than the thought of losing unions. Once the commies get all the power, they don’t need unions anymore. It’s all one, big union called government.

Good way to get into an argument...but here goes...
If you’re a conservative in tgis day and age, you HAVE to be anti-union...because if you’re smaller government, the unions have mutated into an arm of liberal government, and a liberal force used with impunity to shift public awareness and coerce electoral outcomes.
Have to come up with backups to represent substantive employee grievance that is less vulnerable to corruption...and there I’m swimming out of my depth. Maybe someone wants to take that topic up who’s knowledgeable.
Must be the teachers’ union!
