    cystic fibrosis?
    cf. = compare (boy, I haven't typed that very often since I got out of school!)
    chocolate frosting?


    ES, you asked why take away a right other employees have? Is it because the governor thinks collective bargaining rights are not necessary for public sector employees, but the employees themselves do? I can't give you a better answer for that one. Could the federal government use the money they got back from the auto bail-out to help state governments? Would that work?
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    So if that buffoon of a governor thinks that equal pay for men and women is not necessary but the employees do think it is necessary...does that make the governor right?

    The thing to remember - this is NOT about economics. The governor has made - since he took office - more tax breaks to corporations than the budget shortfall. In other words - he created it. This is about power. The unions have offered to go along with the economic consessions he seeks - if he will back off destroying the union. He will not.

    POWER...you know the Fat Cats - taking it out of the working class.

    or chocolate frosting...

    or can't figure or ....

    clueless faker....

    I am just not sure...

    Nope. That's because they wear them on their heads.

    May I change the subject from politics to religion just for a moment? I am so excited, I might have an opportunity to sing in church choir during Lent. My church has Sunday evening services and during Lent they are especially nice. The choir is doing the Fauré Requiem for one of them. I learned part of it in high school, haven't sung it since; but here is an opportunity to do it again There is also a handbell choir being put together for Palm Sunday... we haven't had a bell choir at my church for 10 years, so that should be nice. Then Easter is sort of a bustle, children, families, music, lilies, more music, more lilies. I like Easter at our church.

    I now return the subject back to politics.

    I stand by my assertion that PUBLIC employee unions negotiate against the taxpayer. Simply because when the union wins a concession, the taxpayer has to pay for it.

    Then there is the fact that unions are HUGE contributors to political campaigns. The statistics say that a vast majority of those union donations go to guys with a "D" after their name. I am SURE that those "negotiations" are on the up and up. As if a governor/legislature/what have you is going to fight hard against what a union wants when the unions money helped to get them elected. What we are seeing now, all around the country, is the long term result of the utter joke that public employee union "negotiations" result in.


    Something has to give. I feel for the honest union member. But what are they to do?

    Public employee unions need to have different rules. There has to be some kind of a limit to what they can get out of a 'negotiation'. Otherwise, next time the political climate is full of people they helped get elected.....

    Cf

    CF = cluster f**k

    I don't usually add much to this topic, but I do know what CF means. It was my favorite term while working with lawyers for 30 some years.

    Yeah, that's a bit gruesome to discuss here. But it's sort of along the lines of the Sgt ripping off the Lt's arm and beating him to death with it.
