I find it somewhat interesting that the presenter in the video thinks unions hold exclusive sway over politicians while basically overlooking the undue influence of big business. There's been an exclusive focus on unions and not a peep heard about the out sized influence of big business interests on the nation's politics.
I searched the net for something by Klavan criticizing big business. What I found was against the GM bailouts because... they essentially bailed out the unions!
>>What I found was against the GM bailouts because... they essentially bailed out the unions!<<<LOL! Well, he's certainly consistent isn't he? I wonder what he thinks about the bank bailouts or the fed printing all of this money to accommodate Wall Street? Union membership is down substantially as a function of union breaking as well as the collapse of American industrial might. I suppose it could be argued that a vestige of unions remains in the public employee sector and I'd tend to agree that it's difficult to ask the taxpaying public to pay for fringes and benefits that they themselves don't have. But that applies to the bank bailouts and Wall Street accommodation via the Fed as well. Gas and food prices are mostly up due to speculation supported by our nation's central bank which impacts everyone's pockets much more than any public union. I just find it interesting how unions are the new bugaboo, while no one on the right talks about Federal Reserve induced inflation which is essentially a stealth tax. Hence, I just feel compelled to offer a counter view on this. That's all.
