Failure: Unions in America Today

The teachers unions are the most despicable.I sat in a few classrooms when I was active in the PTA and listened to some of the worst excuses for teachers I have ever seen. When I complained to the school administrators I was told that they couldn't get rid of the trash because of "seniority". WHAT?! They are destroying the future of the country, and we have to sit by and watch? We need more Governors like Walker.

What a breath of fresh air these Governors are.
I do notice, though, that Walker's success is either never reported by the press and news, or denigrated, as downright unAmerican.
As unsure how to reverse this deception by commission or omission.
And their success is helping Obama with his economic reports and job numbers.

We have no press, at least not one we can trust. The MSM is just an arm of the current government and unions, kind of like Pravda was in the former Soviet Union. I bet they are working on shutting down others likes FOX, Limbaugh, anyone that stands in their way.
It will get worse before it gets better.

Unions played an important role in American history. At the turn of the last century, a lot of workers encountered awful and dangerous conditions on the job. The workers banded together, demanded changes and got them. After that, Americans joined unions and the dues began to roll in. Riding that wave of compulsory money, union bosses rose. With that much money flowing, corruption wasn’t far behind.

Times have changed. The economy, country and world have changed. But unions haven’t. Union membership among non-government employees has fallen off a cliff. But although membership is down, their power remains large.

Why? Because...
