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.
Lots of improvements both inside and out. The owners and staff work very hard to keep everyone coming back again and again. If you are looking for a place that has something for everyone's taste, you need to check them out!
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.
I wish I could get out more often so I could enjoy the great food and entertainment provided at Bricks Sports Bar & Grill. The new owner and staff are awsome and making improvements so folks can have a better experience while spending time there. I love to sing Karaoke and usually go on Wednesdays. Rick runs the show on Wednesday and I haven't heard a better sound system that really gives a singer more confidence because it projects the voice so well and Rick knows how to make adjustments that complement each individual singer. I encourage everyone to visit the Bar and find out what the weekly events are, I think you will be happy you did.
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.
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?
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.
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?
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!"
Mr. K - where human life is cheap? You mean like in Benghazi?
gurudori, you posted a lot of stuff that I already knew, but did not answer my question, so let me clarify: Does the Christian Bible state that "...the Jews wanted him [Saul/Paul] excuted for converting to Christianity and blaspheme again OT..." or is that statement based on tradition and commentaries?
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.
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.
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.
This is the stupidest trial of all time. Anchutz isn't responsible for Jackson being a crackhead like Whitney Houston or Rick James.
The powers that be don't have to like you, they do have to respect you. The Indy has some top-notch, balanced reporters -- that's why John Weiss accomplished the miracle of starting a paper at a time in this country when they are disappearing. Keep up the good work. The city needs you.
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.
WOW! Who says, "it isn't all about money?!?!?" - because, in reality, "YES IT IS!!!" These two mega-rich people will duke it out and fight to the death because of the ALMIGHTY DOLLAR. Yes, IT REALLY IS ABOUT $MONEY$ - for EVERY PERSON ON THIS PLANET.
Anti gunners, one more time, listen up. You have been lied to. If 90% of Americans wanted new gun laws, there would be new gun laws, it's called "representitive government". If our elected reps don't vote the way the majority wants, they don't get re-elected, pretty simple. As for Morse, just this week the guy tried to re-criminalize marijuana, HE HAS TO GO! Spare me your knee-jerk defense of all that is Democrat. Morse is puposely and without shame, ignoring the voices of the voters, sign the recall, get your voice back.
