Another porter/doorman told me that he wants socialism in this country. When he said that my jaw dropped. The entire staff votes Democrat as they are union members.

Unions by their nature and how they operate ARE socialist organizations.

- They get paid to scale regardless of their performance. If they perform to well, the union instructs them to slow down because they are making the rest of them look bad.

- They are lead by officers who rip them off by embezzling their funds on a massive scale, using their positions to better themsleves at the members expense.

- They bribe politicians to enact labor laws that are designed to stifle competition and force membership.

I've often found it amusing to hear union members complain about the salaries of the senior exectuives of the companies that hire them while blindly supporting their union leaders who negotiated their wage.
