Unions are self-centered and scared little people

I am really sick and tired of the failed Obama government bashing big business, big banks and big oil. How about bashing big teachers unions, big auto unions and big farmers unions and on and on.

I know, as well as you, that these unions have gouged the public and owe the taxpayer billions, if not trillions in bailout money. They are net takers. I want my money back. I want them to do the honorable thing. Of course we all know that these unions will not do the honorable thing. They never have and never will. None of them, ever!

They are scared little people, who, when they band together, are vengeful, hateful, people. I know. I have been a union member -- twice.

I am sorry -- from the bottom of my heart. Unions will do what is right for them. They are selfish, self-centered, me, me, me. They have no belief in themselves. They have come to the realization that they can't do anything for themselves. Some unions even use kids to advance their agenda. Sad and true -- even in Bemidji -- almost un-American, almost shameful. Actually, it is un-American and shameful.

I want my money back comrades and comradettes and an apology. Grow a spine. I know that you do not have my back and I want you to know that I do not have yours. I could not in my younger years have fathomed writing that, but I was a dreamer back then. Now days I know what is. So do you!
