Do Labor Unions Have too Much Power Robert Sheridan FawCawnahs bobsheridan@earthlink.net On 07/31/2000 9:50:00 PM, sir rich ladieu wrote:

Why restrict the gripe to labor unions?

Let's see, you could say the same about government in general, any political party you care to point a finger at, religion, law, science, academia, and the military.

Let's see, what home-of-virtue have I left out?

The legislature(s)? That's gov't.

Now that we've got that settled, what are we going to do about it?

No fair saying the cure involves eliminating the human element.

We knew that.

Can't do that.

Any other suggestions?

I know.

Watchdogs.

But who will watch the watchdogs?

That's a very old question.

Ah, I remember.

"Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty."

Think T. Jefferson said that.

Okay, Rich, that's what we've got you for.

Woof!
