2031 - somewhere in Wisconsin
"Tell me again what you were fighting for,grandpa."
"Well, we loved the safety of having a job where even if we took a dump on the desk, and threw it all over the place, we couldn't get fired. Also we didn't want to pay more than 0.2% of our income towards retirement, and, dad blast it, they actually wanted us to increase our contribution to our health care plan from 5% to 12%. I know we had a 3 billion dollar deficit, and our fight eventually led us to live in the squalor we now endure, but darn it, we deserved it. Now, go get me a rat so I can fry it up for supper. "
"And what did your grandpa do?"
"He sacrificed his life fighting fascism and killing socialist Nazis."
"Grandpa, you embarrass me."
As a doctor and small business owner, I am glad I work in a right to hire/fire state. We don't need unions these days. A couple laws saying babies can't work in factories, no chaining people to a milling machine, and that's about it. If you want to work for me, work for me. If you don't, don't. If your skills are valuable, I will reward you. If I don't, someone who wants to make more money and succeed will pay you for them. It's really not that complicated, retards. There are wonderful opportunities for you in Greece or Finland for you lazy socialist leeches.
