Re: “Going hungry in Houston

Here's an idea Jimmy. Why don't you and your bleeding heart adopt all the homeless in the Springs. You don't need to take them in, but simply follow behind them and pick up all the trash they heedlessly toss around. Or, better yet, pick up all the feces deposited daily along the trail system. Or are you just talk?

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

K: what a putz. You have yet to offer an original thought. You sit on your perch, like the vulture you are, and pick apart people's posts. You actually believe yourself to be wise. You are the biggest joke on these pages. (Well, tied for biggest. The twisted sister is pretty ludicrous as well.)

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

siggie, you wrote, "Unions of yesteryear bear no resemblance to the greedy thuggery of the unions today." Indeed! That is because many, if not most, of the unions were organized and led by unabashed communists and socialists. In the 1950's, after the Soviet Union tested a nuclear device, and America officially entered the "McCarthy Era," communists and socialists were drummed out of the unions, paving the way, in many, but not all cases, for unscrupulous opportunists to take over.

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

Arch-conservative President Richard "Tricky Dick" Nixon opened relations with "Red China," a policy no Democrat would ever have been able to introduce. He was initiating a divide-and-conquer maneuver, trying to drive a wedge between the two allies, and his policy was certainly instrumental in the fall of the Soviet Union.

Now that the Soviet Union is no more, it is long past time to turn against the "Peoples' Republic," to put an end to the sham they call communism, and to liberate their people, using the same weapon we used against the Soviet Union, economics. But the so-called "job creators" are too busy making record profits from the exploitation of Chinese workers. And so-called "conservative" politicians are responsible for mortgaging the nation to China to fight not one, but two (count 'em!) wars.

These "patriots" are bolstering China's economy. They are today's true "useful idiots!"

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

Stacy: Golly, is it fair to bring up Benghazi? The liberals are wetting their pants over this one. If we had an honest media, this would have been a huge story eight months ago. However, the liberal press, not wanting to embarrass their deity, Obama, or their queen, Hillary attempted to bury it. The White House wanted us all to forget about it by refusing to address it. Unfortunately for them, this travesty (and cover up) has legs and has an excellent chance of being blown wide open. Let us hope that justice prevails.

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

siggie, the one thing you did not say is that any American garment workers have been injured or killed on the job recently, in spite of the supposed modern decline in union morality that you fail to document. You also fail to mention that it is the American garment workers union that is the sole voice in America fighting for safer conditions for the garment workers of Bangladesh, even though the workers in Bangladesh are not members and do not pay dues.

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

Changing the subject again? How do you I have no opinion on the oppression of Chinese workers? I was not aware that I am required to inform you of all my opinions regarding China before you even bring up the topic, Stacy. I will let you know precisely how I feel about China later tonight, when I have some time to devote to the subject. In the meantime chew on this, it was Mitt Romney who inspected a factory in China and praised their system of slave labor.

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

K: So, you have licked your wounds from the last ass whooping you received in these pages and, being the arrogant twit that you are, have forgotten how painful it was.
Unions of yesteryear bear no resemblance to the greedy thuggery of the unions today. They care nothing for worker safety and (if one were being honest) nothing for the "worker". All they care about is maintaining their dwindling power base, how much money they can extort from companies, how much they can squeeze out of their lemming members, and how much Democrat ass they can kiss.

Apparently, Stacy, you have never heard of the infamous Triangle Fire.

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

And speaking of communists, Mr. K, why is it when hundreds of Chinese miners die in a mine collapse, you and Hightower and the rest of the Marxists have no opinion?

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

Change the subject? Okay, let's go back. You were saying that somehow if there were no unions in America today, that building codes would not exist. Sure makes total sense.

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

Stacy, can't you read? Did the article in question mention Benghazi, or Bangladesh? Or are you simply trying to change the subject in a vain attempt to distract attention from your indifference to the safety of working people around the world?

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

siggie, I would wager both liberals and conservatives would be shocked to discover that advocating safe working conditions makes one a "useful idiot" and an "unwitting communist."

Ironically, it is conservatives like yourself who unwittingly aid the communist cause. Most Americans consider workplace safety to be common sense, but once you have explained that it is a vital part of the communist plot to subjugate the world, the American people will say, "Then we are communists!"

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

Indeed, siggie, if not for the unions, those could have been innocent American workers dying in American sweatshops, instead of foreigners dying overseas. Indeed, Stacy, how stupid of these workers not to have realized that resisting dangerous and inhumane working conditions would lead to businesses relocating overseas where human life is cheap.

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

Right Rocky "Bush did it", yeah, we never hear that. Get a grip Rocky, the fact is Bill Clinton signed it. And as we look into recent history, we learn something. That the Democrats controlled both the House AND Senate from 1993 to 1995, and on what date did Bubba Clintoon sign the law? Why, December 8, 1993. How strange, either you don't know what you're talking about or you're a liar. I'll go ahead and give you the benefit of the doubt and say it's the former, after all, you do sound like you vote Democrat.

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

You guys do understand that it was Bush the first to get the ball rolling with NAFTA dont you? And it was the business lobby and Congress by the way a Republican Congress that got it passed. You also understand its Corporate America that entices the illegals to come here so they dont have to pay for the benefit of hiring Americans. Yep Clinton put his name on it. But wasent it a man in Texas that was thrown out of the Republican party for his sucking sound argument. Stupid is as Stupid does.

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

Stacy, the term 'useful idiots' has never been more applicable than in the US today.
I would wager that the many liberals would be shocked to discover that they are unwitting communists.

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

Great post siggie. It makes one ponder the question "are liberals so stupid, that they cannot see that making it more expensive to do business chases businesses away?", I say yes, liberals are exactly that stupid. These are the people that complain about companies "shipping jobs overseas", yet cheer as Bill Clinton signs NAFTA and Obama prepares to ship in another 30 million illegal workers. Liberals don't see the connection. Just a tip for the Manitou crowd, a factory of Mexican workers in Mexico is just like a factory of Mexican workers in America.
