About Me

As Battlesword, you could say I'm a double edged blade. One blade's edge is the music I love and play when I DJ. The other is this: My soul. The things that make me want to grab the world by the neck and scream to them. To make them understand.

The “Overpaid Union Workers” boondoggle is based on another boondoggle - “Americans are middle class.” Seriously, talk to anyone.
Almost everyone in America believes they are “middle class.” From trailer parks all the way to summer homes in Gulf Shores, they’re all “middle class,” if you ask them. This is because they don’t want the “shame” of being poor, but they also don’t want the “elitism” of being rich.The truth is, the majority of Americans are not middle-class. Most Americans are poor. Maybe not impoverished, but poor. But so long as they think of themselves as being middle-class, suddenly those union people, oh boy, they’re living life on a luxury cruise, aren’t they? It’s one lie, built on top of another. We have to knock down the underlying lie; as this graphic is trying to do. The trick is to expose that most Americans are NOT well-off or living comfortably.

And if they are “well off”, see how leveraged they are. Subtract their debt [borrowed money, student loans, mortgage, credit cards] from their assets and there is a lot of NEGATIVE NET WORTH out there.
The middle class needs to remember the pizza analogy:

Three guys order a ten slice pizza. The first guy opens the box, takes nine slices, and then says to one of the two remaining guys “watch out for that union asshole, he’s trying to steal YOUR slice.”

Federal Court: DOMA Violates Married Same-Sex Couples’ Rights


A Federal Appeals court in Massachusetts ruled Thursday that the Defense of Marriage Act violates the Constitution by denying federal benefits to same-sex couples and though it’s a narrow ruling, it’s still a victory for same-sex marriage advocates as the case makes its way ever-closer to the Supreme Court.

I’m not usually one for caps, but… HELL YES.  I’m straight as they come, but this different rules for different people pisses me off.  Wake the Hell up and stop trying to make laws to control OTHER people’s lives!
