No need to explicate. Pick one: socialism, fascism, communism, progressivism.
Exactly. Parasites do not think about where they will turn when the host is dead. You would see a tremendous change in viewpoint were they deprived of all the "evils" they want destroyed but depend on every day for their survival. Energy, clean water and currency would all be out of reach for the useful idiots who think the Central Planning committees will dispense "equality" to the masses.
I can only partly agree. My experience with union construction workers on government contract jobs possess the same attitude as unionized government workers. The sense I got from both was no matter how much you pay them, you're still screwing them. As such, no government, at any level, will ever have enough to satisfy them.
This may occur more frequently in cities, you can forget the states. State level politicians are far more beholden to unions than cities or counties. It's a numbers thing. In the "right to work" state of Maryland, even non-union state employees, up to a certain level, have to pay "dues" to cover the cost of "services" provided to all employees by the union. While I did not fall into that category I did call the union rep on behalf of some of my staff who were, also, non-union. I was told there was legal precedent due to a case filed and won in another state where the judge ruled extracting these "fees" from non-union employees was permissible. The union rep stated the union threatened to sue the state under this premise if an agreement could not be reached out of court. Given the nature of politics in Md, I'm sure the O'Malley administration was willing to sign on the dotted line with very little negotiation taking place. The non-union member "fees" were subject to some exemptions, one of them being religious, (Guess who was exempt, Rahj?) with the provision you provided proof of an equal or greater amount to your specific religious organization. Also, the "fee" was reduced to eliminate the amount spent on political activity by the union. While local elections in counties and towns of hundreds of thousands may be able to vote in their own self interest, the task of sloughing off the state level parasites and their political puppets is another thing altogether.
It's not your mouse. It's this website.
Remember the phrase: you break it, you own it? Shortly after the employer mandate kicks in the entire health insurance industry, as well as how medicine is practiced, will be beyond repair. At that point the progs get what they want, one sixth of the economy and the largest social engineering hammer they've ever had. This is no accident or "unintended consequence". It is Alinsky/Cloward-Piven/Marx by the book.

And these are the jobs Americans won't do? Right. There was a time when a high school graduate could enter the trades, learn a craft and make a good living. Now they are urged to go to college to "keep up" with the new hi-tech industries. Check with last years graduating class to see how that's working out for them. Blue collar jobs are becoming less of an option because those jobs are being given to full grown Latinos who send half their pay back home.

The GOP efforts to win the "hearts and minds" of illegals reminds me of the dork in high school that paid people to be his friend. Everyone took his money but he still sat alone at the lunch table.

Colin Powell once famously said, "...you break it, you own it." Well, Obomba broke it because he wants to own it. The "employer mandate" will be the final nail in the coffin for private health insurance. Given the complete chaos that resulted from dismantling the individual insurance market one only has to multiply the number of displaced (6 million) by a factor of 5 to understand what's coming next. At that point, the "risk corridors" will become so large the only solution will be a federal takeover of the insurance industry. Remember, never let a good crisis go to waste. Especially if you created it.

During a visit with my back surgeon, last week, he stated he was seriously considering dropping out of the health insurance "networks". He is a man of few words but he made it clear the ACA is making it difficult for him to continue his practice under the new federal mandates and the parameters being set by the insurance companies. What he wanted to say, but didn't, is he's being asked to do a lot more for a lot less. It's becoming more apparent fascism and the medical profession is not a good combination. Unless you are independently wealthy, we should all prepare to wait in long lines for sub-standard medical care.
