56. The fools aren't just fucking with union jobs, they're fucking with their own jobs.

It was thanks to our previous generations who fought like hell to be unionized in order to have the humane working conditions that most jobs have today. It's thanks to them that you have livable working conditions and ways to force bosses to maintain those. It was thanks to the unions that you have the vacation time you do, the benefits (yo, teabaggers, you can kiss goodbye having ANY work-provided health insurance if the Rethugs win), your children aren't forced to work, and so much more. I'm sure there are a few rich teabaggers and a few who own businesses who won't have to worry about the Rethugs successfully breaking the unions.

Idiots don't get it: once the unions lose power the rest of you are fucked.

(Edited to add: brilliant post! Of course, enthusiastic K&R!)
