 Why Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, and Drew Brees Have Earned My Respect
Why Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, and Drew Brees Have Earned My Respect
In the wake of the CBA (collective bargaining agreement) that has yet to be reached between the NFL and the Players' Union, there is talk that the union may "decertify" if they cannot reach an agreement with the owners. In other words, the union would "commit suicide", cease to exist, and expose the NFL to antitrust lawsuits. Word has it that if such an event happens, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, and Drew Brees, are preparing to name themselves as plaintiffs in a class-action lawsuit against the NFL. picked by B-MoreRavensFan 7 months ago

Labor Dept Fails to Release Union Corruption Tracking Record
The Office of Labor Management Statistics (OLMS) was supposed to release an annual report tracking labor unions and evidence of corruption in union leadership in January 2010 but still hasn’t released the document.

 Michigan Forcing Business Owners Into Unions
Michigan Forcing Business Owners Into Unions
Unions are in search for new members to replace their sagging membership. Newest idea? Any company that provides day care for any client(s) that receive government subsidy for child care are forcibly union members.

Have you ever met a baling? How about a baffona?
English language is quite large, but there are somethings that English just doesn't have a word for, such as someone who is excited by eating garlic, or how about the act of taking lice from a person's head and squashing it between one's teeth.
