One little bit of History I love. The Sherman Act "Anti-Trust" laws were originally used to prosecute Labor Unions who developed monopolies on labor, and essentially engaged in price-fixing in the labor market. It would be good to see Anti-Trust Laws brought against government unions, but that would mean the Goverment suing itself.... I don't mind private unions, so much. When they over-reach, the company can always shut down under the enreasonable demands (as in "Hostess"). Gov employee unions just get the government to raise taxes or go further into debt to feed their screaming babies.
