From everything I read and gather, it appears the D's seem to be the party of choice. They believe in gay marriage, etc. If this is so, then why are they fighting so hard against states trying to become "right to work" states? Shouldn't employees be granted the exact same choice as to whether or not to belong to a union?

you hit it right on the head, a worker should have the same right to choose whether to join a Union and a Gay person should have the right to marry who they want, just the same a women should be paid equally like a man. Equality right? I am all for that. Now we agree on something.
In terms of the worker not choosing to join the Unions but get all the benefits that the Union worker gets is not right either. THere almost has to be two payscales and I could probably estimate that the non-Union worker will be paid cheaper not more.

Interesting article on Drudge about the city of Detroit. Take some time and read and ponder the statistics. Now how do we fix
Detroit?? Would throwing more money at it fix it. Unions couldn't save Detroit.
Seriously how do we fix places like Detroit.
Interesting some of the divisive comments the article stated that Obama made while visiting there.

But I buy Uncle sam a new lexus every year. I'm not saying which model but it's a nice little chunk and I am prepared to share the extra burden without whining about it. As You know I favor ending the bush tax cuts for everyone.
This horse has been in the harness since 1956. The tax policy of the last decade have been quite gentle on you and you expect it to continue for all eternity. It was never meant to be permanent tax law, not even when it was written. It was an republican iniative signed into law by G W Bush with an expiration date. Knowing full well that the legislation would have failed if passed as a permanent measure. No congress or president is in any way obligated to make that law permanent.
You might compare it to a generous landlord that gave you an 8 Year lease with a $100 rental rate. Anew landowner bought the property and extended the lease for another two years at the same rate. Now the new landlord wishes to raise the rates 3% and you are having a hizzy fit because the new guy is unfair.
