I try to buy from as many small businesses and farming coops as possible but I try to never to buy from anywhere that is unionized. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 2549094
I remember when any
40 hour a week job, no matter how menial, bought a single person their own decent, modest digs, providing money for food, running a vehicle, with money left over... without the need for roommates.
That was because the Union wages translated across the society to provide that.
Reagan came in and gutted the unions. They crawled into bed with corporagov for survival and it has been a continually bad saga of destruction of the middle class and downsizing of quality of life ever since.
I'm amazed at how many have accepted their brainwashing, espousing philosophies that work against their own best interests.
Case in point.... Twinkies.
I posted this in a thread on Twinkies.
Read... and learn:
"There will be Twinkies.
It's a corporate shell game.
Bankruptcy, dissolve, "sell," and come up again under a different moniker.
Throw the thing up under one name with the left hand, it comes down in the right hand under a different name and Twinkies will still be produced.
It's been a common enough ploy since the early 80s in the U.S.
It's all about making sure that workers lose traction, monies, benefits, and have a continually shrinking quality of life.
If you haven't been paying much attention and seen this happen before, watch this one.
You'll learn a bit."
At this point I don't expect people who never lived the freedom of movement and choice that I had when there was a closed lock loop that prevented manufacturing being set up outside the country.
There was always the cheap labor to be had.
The change came when CorporaGov changed the rules.
You're all living the hell that has created.
The very, very sad thing is... so many of you have been so mind-fucked you espouse the thoughts of others that have been planted for your own destruction.
Sad bunch of Mofos.
There's a part of me that says.... you really do deserve what is coming to you in the U.S. for so loving the lie.
