Unions aren’t the enemy

Recently Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential hopeful Willard Mitt Romney said he’s going to “push back” against so-called “federal teachers unions” in America; well, sorry to break it to Willard, but unions aren’t the enemy.

In fact:

If you get paid a living wage – you should thank a union member

If you work a 40 hour work week, and get paid overtime after that – you should thank a union member

If you get weekends off – you should thank a union member

If you get paid vacation time – you should thank a union member

If you get paid sick leave – you should thank a union member

If you have health care through your employer – you should thank a union member

If you get raises – you should thank a union member

If you have the right to arbitration in your work place – you should thank a union member

If you have retirement benefits – you should thank a union member

Conservatives love to bash unions in this country; they love to play the “blame game”, and unions are their favorite target, but without unions your life would be a lot different.

Business owners didn’t grant the above mentioned benefits to employees because of their great beneficence, they did it because of organized labor.

Conservatives love to blame the unions for our economic troubles but it wasn’t unions who drove the economy off the cliff during the Bush/Cheney years, and it wasn’t unions who created Governor Walker’s deficit problems; fact is only one group benefits from the destruction of labor unions in America and that’s the top 1% Republicans continuously try to protect.

If there’s an enemy in our economy it’s not the unions, it’s the uber-wealthy 1% hiding money in off shore accounts and claiming to be “job creators” while benefiting for the past ten years from massive tax cuts.

If you don’t like the aforementioned benefits, vote Republican, do it often enough and the day may come when you, or your children, won’t have them.

Mittens Stashed Millions in Offshore Accounts?

ABC News is reporting Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential candidate Willard Mittens Romney has stashed millions of dollars in offshore investments, a new report from ABC News finds.

The story shines more light on the never ending story that Mittens lives in a different reality from the rest of us, a reality where only elite 1% dwell.

According to ABC News, the former Bain Capital executive who’s reportedly worth upwards of $250 million holds around $8 million of his personal wealth in as many as 12 funds based in the Cayman Islands. Romney also lists a separate investment, valued between $5 million and $25 million, placed on the same Caribbean island chain.

ABC News reports that Romney’s former company – a company Mittens still gets paid from as art of his “retirement plan” – holds some 138 shrouded offshore funds in the Cayman Islands alone. Romney’s campaign of course is attempting to maintain that such behavior is not unusual, and that Romney himself has paid all the appropriate U.S. taxes on his holdings within the accounts.

Mittens is a liar, he’s a cheat, a fraud and he hides money in off shore accounts so he can evade taxes; yeah, he’s just the type of guy we need in the White House.
