Fine, say what you want.
Personally, I don’t think that many will talk.
We don’t get many comments here at Big Sky Words, never have.
Is that a bad thing…and really…what does it mean?
I guess it could mean no one visits, or no one cares, or people are just so damn convinced by my arguments that there’s simply no reason to comment.
It could be something else too.
Either way, talk away!
I’d like to go ahead and mention the 600 points the Dow fell today.
Wow, didn’t affect me at all!
How ‘bout you…lose some money?
How’s that feel?
I guess it depends on if you could afford to lose that money or not. If not...why the hell isn’t it in the bank or in a safe in your home?
Well, rich people…no point in trying to point their greed out to 'em.
After all, why keep money somewhere where it can’t be making money?
Uh...so it’s safe.
The way the rich and their corporate propaganda wings want us to think after this Brexit is that there’s another global recession on the way.
My house has been in recession for a decade – take that bullshit to some other street where they still have something to lose.
I’ve just heard the rich cry ‘wolf’ too many times, myself.
Speaking of the rich, how about all those entitled union pricks in Helena today for the AFL-CIO Convention?
I was invited to this but chose not to go. Here are some images I pulled off of Twitter:
So there you see two losers getting applauded for their efforts to help union workers.
Oh, I’m sorry…are Denise Juneau and Melissa Romano not losers?
Because the election results I’m looking at have them down 32,000 and 26,000 votes, respectively.
Huh, maybe they’ll find those votes in that convention room there in Helena.
And how about this: A fucking political unknown does 6,000 votes better than a woman that’s been in the statewide spotlight for a decade, sheesh!
My oh my, I have to shake my head.
Before you get your feathers all ruffled, we discussed this before, this time last year in fact.
The post was called Can the Montana AFL-CIO Convention Help You at All?
In it we pointed out that the Montana AFL-CIO represents just 8% of Montana’s workforce.
Union representation in Montana altogether covers just 13% of our workforce.
My, what a failure our unions are.
I’d like 100% of our workforce unionized.
Alas, the unions don’t want that…or were they somehow working toward that?
I know – it’s by increasing the money they spend on top officials.
Top AFL-CIO officials get $6,000 a year in compensation on average, compared to the $170 that each AFL-CIO union worker gets.
But this open thread isn’t about unions or my perceived hatred of them.
Nope, it’s about you, and what you want to say.
So please, say it.
It's clear ID and Cowturd are shutdown, so let's get some conversation going, conversation on anything.
So...what's on your mind?
