So you have to ferret out some three year old article in HuffPo to justify you theorem? Really?! This is tantamount to trying to find positives about capitalism in Das Kapital. I don't know what country you think you're living in, but government spending IS out of control! Or does $6 trillion in deficit spending mean nothing to you, troll idiot! You'll never get off this blame Bush tricycle you're on, if you don't face reality and start thinking like a grownup. Better yet, just go back into your cave and keep painting your rendition of the hunt.

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...
