    Default End police unions?

    Snowden says this is where to start and I agree with him. I was once a union member and the worst thing about it was that the Union would almost always leave no stone upturned protecting substandard people from the consequences of being substandard. A superior performer myself I found this infuriating. I also have for a long time believed that all public sector unions harm the nation because I watched them at the state level partner up with the government leaders to mislead and defraud the citizens during contract talks.

    What say U?

    Sounds like you enjoyed receiving a union pension and union salary, even as you scold other Americans to foresake the benefits of unions

    I think it very well might be worse, that they are bad for us.

    This thread has been a profound disappointment.

    Maybe we could even talk about why the national conversation is so horrible in quality.....there were so many place for this thread to go....it however effectively generated almost no interest.

    I think the left is OK with eliminating police unions.

    Getting rid of a public union, even a police union, won't happen because these public unions are used by both political parties to force future legislatures to deal with the will of previous legislatures. This is not supposed to be done but it happens and it's convenient, for both major parties, so...nothing to see here.
    Why Trump? Because Fuck You that's why.

    Which public unions have been used by the GOP "to force future legislatures to deal with the will of previous legislatures"?
