#1 Semmes didn't fare well at Gettysburg either. Best for Georgians to stay at home.

#5 No different than corporate profiteering with military supplies during war, for which there is a long and sorry history.

#6 ...yes, because they're on 1 1/2 to double overtime. The longer it takes the more money they pocket.

#8 The union credo to "make the job last" does not bode well for the needy citizenry of NJ and NY.

#10 Georgia is a right-to-work state. The above reminds me of the scorpion and frog story. There are many people who are not a member of some union in other states who could provide services to NYC but just about everything there is unionized. Time to consider the worth of unions and what they are really about. New York ought to consider Right-to-work legislation. Good for Christie. Do it. NY governor should do the same.

#11 John, as if a Democrat would do such a thing to his union buddies.

#12 his union buddies paymasters.

FIFY. There are no deeper pockets than mandatory union dues [aka closed shop].
