People all over are waking up to the cozy relationships that exist between Unions and elected officials, suppliers, you name it. Scamming is rampant where there are lots of loose dollars to be syphoned. I hope this changes the view of many and get involved

Pay differential between the managers and workers in the public sector is much less than it is in the private sector.

Joe, so our executive branches are underpaid?

The trouble with education in this country starts and ends with unions. They are out-of- touch museum relics, fitting for a day that used rotary presses to distribute the news, but wildly inappropriate for an age that‘s both wired and wireless.

Unions have prevented, and continue to prevent, much-needed reforms in education, public finance and government. They cultivate a sense of entitlement wholly out of order for the times, which call for more self-reliance and entrepreneurship.

Frankly, unions suck.


They suck the money out of our wallets; they suck productivity out of workers; and suck up all the leavings from the...
