<<<<UAW Set The Standards That Built This country through a strong middle class. Without the strong middle class that was built by the UAW, this country never would have been able to pay for the military build up that caused the downfall of the USSR. Every American owes their standard of liveing to the UAW. Even those who are not union. Now, lets here from all the ignorant antiunion fools.>>>>
Without socialists like the UAW, there never would have BEEN a USSR in the first place, you freakin' moron!
The UAW is not socialists>>>
Its way socialist, if it wasn't then each person would be able to earn based on their individual skill and effort instead of the average of all workers output. A classic socialist concept. You don’t want to be a socialist so you are shocked at the concept that you are. You want to be an American but the stereotype of an American is an independent minded person who acts on their own and can become rich by their actions; it really doesn’t fit the union concept.

Web, I am telling you the truth. I don't really know who exactly these socialists, leninists, communists, stalinists, marxisits, and all these other folks are. I always confuse myself about the philosophies behind these terms, and especially how they stand in relation to the former USSR, Russia, UAW, unions, and modern-day American auto workers. I'd appreciate if you could share your insight about these complex relations, which I fear are way beyond my current understanding; but please don't use the notion of a moron - it's just another term I am so confused about.
<<<<Is web-dunce saying that Caiifornia is 99.9% UAW.>>>>
As usual, I don't know wtf you're trying to say, but at one time, we had GM plants in Van Nuys, CA and Fremont, CA.
Both were UAW; both are gone.
It's hard enough for a business to survive in a democrat-run state like this. But just make it a UAW-infested business and see how long it lasts.
PS: Remember when the UAW got into the US bicycle industry? Schwinn, AMF, and Murray. They're all gone, too.
