Jimmy: I concur regarding your post pertaining to Great Britain. Well said.
The USA has its own ruling superpower union of states of which people of other nations will hop aboard at the earliest convenience believing they are unified with its purpose, whereas all they want is to be obsequious and commit frottage to satiate their capricious desires then discard it when another superpower comes along. Satanica has this world dangling on a string, but his time is transitory and his subjects will be eviscerated expeditiously. Vote NO to Babel. Vote YES to God's cleansed vicinity.
God is Great!
Joshua: I see that you have come back to this board after a short hiatus. This has nothing to do with the CWA union, only in regards to my illustration of how if England is to be incorporated and held in the highest echelon as the main entity being in control of itself, then others may come aboard as if symbolized by this "Union Jack" flag representation.
If England and Britain were in the EU, they probably would not be the sole leaders of Europe; hence, their reluctance to play second fiddle to the other European states. How can you possibly conceive of the heartland of British sovereignty and royalty being undermined and controlled by nations who themselves are struggling to find their own straight and narrow path?
To England, Scotland and Wales: Stand firm. Stand proud. Stand independent and control your own destiny and dynasty. Let your British dignity shine above all others. Never be lumped in with dubious associations that may draw you in, and drag you down and spit you out. I know what unions can do and how they can damage. I know from experience with the Brooklyn's CWA 1109, how they ousted their own brother. Long live the sovereign vicinity of Great Britain. How I long to be there again. I would kiss the ground of the nation where royalty and dignity inhabit.
Retiree: Well, ah! Let's not jump too far ahead of ourselves as yet. After the union lives out their ephemeral tenure, Verizon will become leaner, greener, and will pursue their desired direction along with the soundness of mind devoid of the sounds of the union's grunting and squealing, as the fork will be appropriately applied.
Harrydale: I believe that you know your stuff regarding T&A charting, shapes, and trendlines, etc. and how to discern and decipher. This still applies. The 50 was a resistance (ceiling) level which was impregnable -- but -- now 50 becomes the support level (FLOOR) of this stock; hence, upside abounds.
Welcome back, my friend; it's good to hear from you. I do agree with you regarding the president. It is incredible and he is atrocious.
JJoshau: To whom are you responding?
I was reading a classic statement from Dipsy and I was about to concur with him. Surprisingly coincidently, I saw your reference to me in your post.
But a topic as this calls for, not even a post, but a bound volume in order to express my experiences in the union trenches and front lines and how they have destroyed and pummeled me toward the dark side.
JJ: Enjoy your reading and responding!
Dipsy: I believe that Verizon would rather pay the mafia an abundance of overtime after this strike than to pay "hip and chic baby-cool" stealth and slick millennial kiddies to be less than AA's to play tennis with the message boards and accommodate kiddie-dribble all day.
I believe this overall high-technological innovation has seen its best days. It is overly played, and all that is left is to stick in a few more bells, whistles and lipstick on these pig priced gadgets.
Mr: Two Cups: (I like your handle.) How is it that you did not see thuggery. How about going to the YouTube and other Social Media and see for yourself regarding the abuse, taunting, blocking of vehicles, the union placing themselves and others in dangerous situations, the shouting and vehemence, the multitude of texts and posts with abuse, name calling, vitriol, recidivism, recalcitrance, destruction of Verizon's property, aspects of induced violence rendered up union workers culpable for their own recompense. Actually, they do not need to strike in order to display utter disrespect for their own workers and jobs. I've seen it from deep in the trenches and have been on the front line of their ridicule and heinousness. I had chosen to keep adorned with the "red wall of silence" in harsh situations where even law enforcement (forget corporate security) could have been contacted.
Craig: Who was greater than the greatest man in the world, the most revered and venerated, is no other than -- whom? Mohammed Ali:
...he had converted to Islam. This is the name we all remember him by, not Cassius Clay.
If the greatest among us had converted to Islam, this shows that any person -- any time -- any place and during any situation -- is always the right time to convert to Islam. Anyone anywhere should be able to adorn and accouter oneself in the attire of the Most-High without being SAT DOWN BY HIS OWN SHOP STEWARD!
Why should it be alright for one and not the other?
