Arguing with idiots.
So, this evening I was jeered into venturing over to a neighbor's house for some beers at around 230am. So after some beers and lot's of idle chatter someone starts bitching being about being laid off. This is detroit. UAW capitol of teh world. These guys are UAW, and making $30/hr to punch in and go to the bar for half their shift. So, I proceed to inform them of the fact that the unions are pricing the American worker out of the job market and all I get is brainwashed union rhetoric. Assholes asking me if I believed in Christmas, and shit like that. When I asked them to make an honest to god argument, all I got was uneducated mud slinging. So when I asked them "If you owned a company, and were able to pay person a $20 to make a product and sell it for $50 or pay person B $5 dollars get the exact same product and still sell it for $50, which would you choose?" all of them said person B. So when I asked how I was wrong, I was kicked out of the house and told I was unwelcome. I was also told I was brainwashed. But seriously, what makes more sense to you, taking a decrease in pay to be able to stay at your current job or having the company go bankrupt and being without a job? Something is better than nothing and the unions cannot seem to understand this. It doesn't help that 100% of the people in the unions are fucking idiots who couldn't pass a business class or any class for that matter if it didn't involve pot smoking or blue collar working class hero rhetoric. Plus, when you try to explain to someone who is part of the "solidarity" movement, that if 8,000 of their brothers become suddenly unemployed, it will be amazing to them how quickly they would be willing to do your job for half the pay. I hate idiots. I hate ignorance. And I hate unions. They served a purpose in the 30's and 40's but now they're a hinderance to the advance of the US economy. Accept it or not. Time will prove me right. Economies adjust to what one can afford. If an area is able to afford $300,000 homes, and suddenly the area is bankrupt, guess what happens? the market can't bear a $300k home, it's now $150k. Deal with it. If you think that you are the pillar of the economy, you're wrong. The top 2% of this country pay for 65% of this country. So take your working class bullshit and go fuck yourself in your self rightous uneducated working man ass. Save me the headache of listening to you cuss and swear because all you can see is the tip of your nose and not the big picture. Ahhhh... whiskey kicking in... capitalism booming... unions getting bit by their own greed happening... UAW program titled "MK Ultra" exposed... hehehehehe. Union NO! Unions hate Jesus and America. hehehehehehehehehe. god this post has been festering. I'm sure I'll wake up this afternoon and see holes in the story, and spelling errors. but fuck it. This is me. And I, am anti union.
