“...the ideology of cruelty?”
How about the cruelty to the non government working people of Wisconsin?
Well then, Ralph, by all means jump into the presidential race.
I’m with you - he needs to get in the race and show Obama up...
[eyeroll] Blithering idiot. I used to think he was at least sincere, unlike most leftists, but then he pulls crap like this incomprehensible and fantasy-strewn screed.
He’s one of those guys you didn’t know was still alive.
It’s clear drugs have not been kind to Ralph.
Government workers here throwing a temper tantrum to pay 5% of their pensions (pre tax) and 12% of their healthcare premiums is not an ideolgy of cruelty.
They on average earn 1 1/2 times the average salary of the average private taxpaying worker in Wisconsin. They have better healthcare plans than most private workers, and they have PENSIONS which no private workers have anymore.
They work for us, we set the terms. If they don’t like it they can look for a better job in the private sector. We are there and we can tell you there are not better jobs in the private sector.
The ideology being set forth is FAIRNESS and PAYING FOR YOUR BENEFITS JUST LIKE EVERY OTHER WORKER DOES.
When he ran for president of the Watermelon, er Green Party years ago, he chose old Trotskyite communist Peter Camejo as his VP running mate.
[Green, like a watermelon on the outside, Red on the inside].
Camejo could run ideological rings around Nader and probably did, even though he had become a wandering marxist without a party (ex SWP, Crossroads, North Star, etc).
Nader has always been an egotistical liar, con artist (he’s the original Al Sharpton), and prima donna.
Now he’s just an old blithering idiot.
I’d vote for a $10 minimum wage just as soon as the AMT is changed so it applies to everybody. When tax credits and deductions and exemption can no longer reduce someone’s Federal Income Tax burden to less than 10% of their income, and when all employee compensation including tips and fringe benefits are included in “income”, then we can talk about a minimum wage increase.
You think Nader would go for that ? Me, neither.
It amazes me how liberals get away with being so patronizing to the “workers” they supposedly champion. Isn’t it patronizing to assume people cannot negotiate in their own best interests and require collective bargaining ? They are pandering to those who lack confidence in their ability to convince an employer of their value to the company.
I LIKE the Koch brothers! You guys have an open invitation to dinner with me whenever you’re in the neighborhood!;)
Honestly, I didn’t know Nader was still alive....
Ralph Nader is still ALIVE? Who knew?
