I refuse to eat saltines, because it says "cracker" on the box.
Sometimes the strangest things are only a racial issue because someone decided to make it one, when there was no intent from the beginning. It also comes down to how the term is used. If it's used toward a person or group in a derogatory manner, then I understand. I don't believe that this fits the bill.
I suppose that's gas in those buckets.
So, part of the point of this cartoon, is to blame the majority of the VW workers at the Chattanooga facility? Because, according to the vote, the majority turned out to be anti-UAW. I think people are ill-informed. There are quite a number of people that would be fine with a union, just not the UAW. A small local union would be fine to create a works-council. What can the UAW offer the employees, that VW hasn't already given them?
The UAW doesn't "make" anything. So where do they get their money? Members. And the latest member count is down below 400K. Top UAW leaders are struggling to keep their lifestyle as the financial support continues to dwindle. So much for the UAW respecting the vote of the employees.
@ Dude: No, just attacked him in the street.

@ Shultz: so it's the FiveseveN?
Interesting data. Seems more people die from hypertension and blood poisoning than from homicide.
you have the freedom to choose whether to have a firearm or not. If I have mine on me, I follow the law. I hope there is never a day in my life that I should even consider bringing it out. But when the zombies come, I'll be (somewhat) ready. From what I've seen, you can't really negotiate with them. :)
"You shoot off your mouth BUT have you ever taken a life?"
Nope, but then I don't put myself into situations where that is ever a consideration to ponder."
Just because you don't put yourself in that type of situation, doesn't mean you wont ever be in one. You don't have to go seeking trouble, for trouble to find you.
@ ibshame- wrong.
@ alprova ...lol, good point.
Perhaps it isn't compensating for something, as much as going overboard. Americans tend to go big. Big cars, big TVs, bigger meals at the fast food restaurant. Like the Mustang or Corvette- why does anyone need that much power to drive down the road? Sure, take it to a track, but what percentage of those cars sold actually do that? (And I'm a car guy) I give my friend a hard time because he has a big Ford diesel. He lives in a subdivision. I ask him (sarcastically) if he's been hauling cattle lately. No, but he takes his kid to swim lessons. Now, I'm not innocent in this either. I have my own way(s) of going overboard. I think we all do.
