This guy deserves his bad reputation.

Do you know why those cars were built with non-union labor in Tennessee? Because these company'sRead More when they choose to build a factory they build them in the most economically depressed parts of the country which most of the time is the south part of the country. A part where Unionism never was popular. As for Ford building cars in Mexico, not true there are parts of the cars that are built in Mexico then the parts are shipped back to the US line and and assembled here. You can thank the NAFTA agreement for that. As for your comment about excessive costs in taxes and salaries compared to NC and that most working people lead a decent life. I agree with some of that but I do not blame working Union men & women for the difference in cost. I blame the politicians in this land we live in the NE. Your tax cost is what is making you miserable to survive here. I am one of them. If our tax costs ( school,property,sales,etc.) were as low as NC I do not think you and I would be having this conversation.At one time here where we live they were that low. NC like NY will eventually evolve into the same beast as more and more people arrive to their geography. This is what happens when the destination cannot handle the influx and had to hire more people and with people come politicians. Politicians now look at that neighborhood as a great place to get votes from and that starts the ball rolling.As for Excessive Compensation?? What is considered excessive to man like you? Someone who gets overtime when he has worked 12 straight hours when most people work 8? It sounds like I am splitting hairs but you work 4 more hours per day then most people during one week that's an extra 20 hours per week. I am sure you would want to be compensated also and you would ask for it. And your not even in a Union. ( not sure) 98% of the LIRR workers felt they were entitled to disability pensions?? I did not hear that stated?If it was coming from a disgruntled citizen or some Union hater not sure? I can say this, it's very easy for anyone to look down on the workers of the LIRR because they may make you late for your way of life when they are active in the collective bargaining process, it is not done intentionally. They are fighting for their way of life, their Livelihood. Just like you would if you heard that your company is looking to fire half the office. They have families,car payments,mortgages,school taxes just like all of us. I am a 3rd generation Union Man. And even before I became vested in the politics of Unionism, my Grandfather told me that you never look down on a working man who gets up everyday to earn a living. My father then told me that people need to walk a mile in a man's shoes before you can judge him. Something I feel has been 2 of the most truthful statements I have ever learned in my life. You can be mad that you might not be as compensated as well at your job as they are iin the LIRR, but then again that should give everyone a little blip of hope that these things are able to exist when people come together for the good of the worker. I enjoyed our banter. Thank you. All the best.

Tom, you are an articulate spokesman for your cause, and I, too have enjoyed our little debate. IRead More just want to address one comment: I do not look down on the woprkingman. In fact, I do tax returns for many of these folks and a much reduced rate than they would pay elsewhere. It is a sideline for me, and I would not be comfortable ripping people off. I do find, however, an incredible sense of entitlement among the public employees. I would bet that most of these people never worked in the private sector, so they do not understand that their good fortune is due as much to politics as it is hard work. It is a shame that people of lesser means have to pay grossly inflated taxes so that these workers can have their high salaries and benefits.

Look at all the comments here where people are telling us how safe it is to smoke pot. I have saidRead More over and over how furious it makes us all when when pot smokers accuse us of being against pot because we think it's all dangerous and deadly and kills people and "ruins your life", etc. Nobody thinks that! It doesn't even occur to these pot smokers that we are against it because it's a mind-altering drug!! And that is why I continue to speak up against pot! This doesn't even OCCUR to pot smokers. Heck no. They think that if only I knew how fun and safe it is to get high, that I'd suddenly realize it's okay! OH BROTHER! This proves my point about why we all need to speak up against pot and why it should be illegal forever, with VERY STIFF PENALTIES! It is not because of marijuana itself, but because of the people who use and defend it! Do we really want people like that walking around actually USING mind-altering drugs? HECK NO! And have you SEEN the comments by pot smokers online? Have you SEEN the videos they make? Heck, you should read the emails they send me! They cuss me out, threaten me with death and bodily harm, attack my religion, my looks, my sex life, make mean videos and websites about me, make fun of me for collecting dolls, use lame excuses about how pot is safer than alcohol and cigarettes, call me ignorant and holier-than-thou, etc. And they all tell me to "educate myself." Educate myself about what, I ask them! I tell them over and over that pot smokers ADMIT to me all the time online that they use it to get high and stoned and have "fun" and relax and unwind, etc. I BELIEVE them when they tell me why they use it and how it affects them! And that is why I am against it! That is what makes it wrong! We shouldn't use mind-altering drugs for these reasons! This is good morals and just plain common sense! But just the fact that these pot smokers all think that if only we knew how safe marijuana is that we'd somehow realize it's okay to get high proves my point about why we all need to speak up against pot and why it should be illegal forever! There is no way we should want people like this walking around actually USING mind-altering drugs!

Then there is that Public Relations clown Schumer who said they should wait 2 months to strike. Great idea! All the teachers will go back to work, schools in session, adding more traffic. DiBlasio was the only one who said this was the best time if there were to be a strike. He was the only one who actually gave it some thought.
