If I recall correctly, Ohio IS out of money.

I believe that it's some $8 billion in the hole.

...do you think they could tell the Indiana delegation to the Flee Party that it's needed back here ASAP? Thanks. Devil

I've always disliked it when a politician promises to

"fight" for their constituents so I guess I should be happy when they run away instead. Sometimes I think congress is like a flock of inept mechanics who, when they come upon a sputtering automobile, will "fix" it so well that it doesn't run at all. Happy

Hmm, not just no striking

but doing away with binding arbitration?

So it's not about strikes at all.

And it's not just to control the unions or costs only.

It's to do away with any union influence.

Without arbitration or strikes (and I'm not real happy actually with public workers striking), all a union negotiation amounts to is the workers begging "pretty please".

talking hypocrisy in govt

In reply to: Clarify?

It will no doubt surprise you to learn that President Obama, the great patron of the working man, also happens to be the great CEO of one of the least union-friendly shop floors in the nation.

This is, after all, the president who has berated Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's proposal to limit the collective bargaining rights of public employees, calling the very idea an "assault on unions." This is also the president who has sicced his political arm, Organizing for America, on Madison, allowing the group to fill buses and plan rallies. Ah, but it's easy to throw rocks when you live in a stone (White) house.

Fact: President Obama is the boss of a civil work force that numbers up to two million (excluding postal workers and uniformed military). Fact: Those federal workers cannot bargain for wages or benefits. Fact: Washington, D.C. is, in the purest sense, a "right to work zone." Federal employees are not compelled to join a union, nor to pay union dues. Fact: Neither Mr. Obama, nor the prior Democratic majority, ever acted to give their union chums a better federal deal.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
