It's not so much a fat joke (I don't think I use them that often but hey...) as a comment on the fact that he can look at a picture of what is on the face of it a pretty beautiful woman and still find some flaw. As if he wouldn't jump at the chance if she asked him. It's just a little odd how he does that, as if maybe he's overcompensating for the fact that he never is going to have a woman like that, maybe?

In Florida only around half the teachers join the union and pay dues. The other half are f uck head scab pieces of ****. But the union negotiates the contract. Some people correctly feel like it’s bull**** that every teacher gets to work under the negotiated contract. Since they don’t pay dues some people think they should just negotiate their own contract case by case.

That ruling in Illinois weakens the union’s power to negotiate good contracts for its public sector unions by lessening their funds.


But, the workers in Illinois and everywhere shouldn’t rely on the law. If you refuse to join the union the unionized workers should stomp a mud hole in your ass.
tl;dr version? I really didn't understand that. I'm not good with union law. I just wanted to know if, in your opinion, this would be a "**** yeah!" or a "**** you bastards screwing the workers" kind of thing?

It does suck.

At least we're not in a tiny fake state though.

We can drop Yang

But it’s only 300 Billion dollar addition to our budget

Take it entirely from the military

Plus if we switched to a single payer universal socialized health care system that would save us what? Another 200-300 billion.

Free and stop incarcerating people for victimless crimes

If we raised the minimum wage to $15 an hour then the government wouldn’t have to pay out as much in food stamps (which is essentially a corporate subsidy because they couldn’t survive with a starving workforce)
