    Really?

    What does it really mean? Or maybe what's the real idea about it?

    Right. Thats what I thought.


    Right to work means that you can work in a shop with Union guys but not be forced to join the union.....right?

    Yup, more or less. It is where you can elect to pay dues or not too. It basically goes after the unions source of income, which is then used for all sorts of stuff like bargaining contracts. In the past, since everyone benefited from the contract, everyone had to pay. This eliminates that and makes "free riders" a possibility. It's commonly called the right to work for less, and it's proven to lower incomes of the states that have it. I would suspect that a nationwide rtw law would happen with the current administration, if not worse. So when everyone is bitching about me bitching about the rich elites screwing over the working class, this is but one front.

    I doubt you would have much to worry about.

    Dont think that would ever happen. Have not even heard where it is on the radar.

    Could be though.....not much union news out here in the wastelands.

    Rebubs in MI passed it here a few years ago. Several States have had it come up.

    What Kyle suggests is not at all out of the ball park.

    Been thinking about it. You might have something there.

    Safe assumption that there is no one perfect human, whether he's running for office or not. So, if you posit Grietens was a generally good person with a good number of positive attributes before he gave in to temptation, and then afterward he realizes what a huge F up he made, and if he learns and matures from the mistake, then you essentially have a new and improved version of the already solid guy you had before. If no second chance is given then an excellent option has been lost.

    Maybe. But what do you say about the premise.

    There is no one on earth who is perfect, has no skeletons. So that leaves us with giving second chances?
