    Hey, this thread went sideways a long time ago. When that happens I start channeling PG Wodehouse.

    Nothing wrong with that ,.... but the point i was making is : it was the unions that developed alot of the basic labor laws we use in our society today , weather a person is for or against unions.

    Unions are very American orientated .

    Unless you can physically give me a qoute straight from the source, stating that the Teamsters make it very clear that they are socialist, than I am going to flat out call you a very dishonest gentlemen.
    Of course, you will never be able to provide such a quote to back up yourself because you are making it all up.
    No union would ever say they are socialist because they are not socialist but, more power to them if they are. So what?
    Most everybody reading these threads is working like a dog for very, very litlle money and as a result are living no better than most poor white trash, yet they continue to support men and policies that not only hurt, but hinder their very lifestyles while the guys at the top are making unimaginable amounts of money hand over fist.
    Read the following;
    Outrage by Robert Reich
    The Great Crash of 2016 by Thom Hartmann

    Fox news has got you guys by the short hairs with a main agenda to control you. You see, there's something much worse than socialism; it's called capitalism and you are all living proof that it sucks the life out of the common good. How much money do you have saved in you bank account fellas? Got a good retirement?....especially all you 401k'rs building up that nest egg after whats left with all that disposable income? Couple thousand bucks a year will end up being nearly nothing, especially after taxes (regardless of age).
    Now look at the few men (always men) at the top; they are all raking record profits to the tune of millions while the rest of you do most of the actual work at 12-14 hours a day, 7 days a week, risking your lives at times driving in the middle of the night on icy roads, and all for about $350.00-$750.00 a week. Compare that to your company president making $40 million a year man. He's not only doing whatever he wants to you, he's also laughing in pure contempt for each and every one of you every day.
    In capitalism, he's a capitalist.
    The rest of you are all worthless cannon fodder... as long as you continue to put up with it.

    Yep, power corrupts, Anytime that you get more than two men together in any organization, they will do anything to be top dog and grab whatever they can.

    This has happened in unions, due to human nature... but... in any union the members can and do have the union right to vote any other member out on his tail at any time, regardless of rank or status.
    You can vote all the bums out, just like that.

    Now, when all the employees are getting screwed by a corrupt management at any non union company, try voting them out. Can't. Period.
    You'll be lucky to get a couple hundred bucks a week for 90 hours of work while the rest of the profits that you and your truck have generated go to the Fat Cat's mansions, kids wonderful private schooling, several vacations to Raratonga, and the wife's Yoga lessons on Maui.

    Te entire basis for the "BILL of RIGHTS" was to promote something called "The Common Good". All these corporations are the antithesis of that common good and only exist to serve themselves.
    A group of organized workers, united with one goal, is the only defense, through 'collective bargaining' to give some muscle to themselves to receive fair compensation and better working conditions.
