If Michigan unions and employees had been more realistic about what was affordable over the decades, perhaps McFail and hundreds of thousands of other Michigan workers would not have priced themselves and the industries they worked for out of the market.

I couldn't agree more. All those workers had to do was to never take a raise, and keep themselves competitive with those Chinese workers making $3 a week. How stupid they were!

Also, we should eliminate the minimum wage, and regulations which required furnace repairmen to have any training, so that $2 an hour neophytes could go into people's houses and mess with the gas lines. Those dang regulations, they're ruining the country!

The Tea Party has exactly the right idea. The race to the bottom is the solution!
