My question was also a light hearted way of making a point, And that is that is, that you failed to make YOUR point. But, I quess my effort was also wasted.

((Deny it all you want, but private capital creates jobs.
Yeah, that's what George Bush said when he cut taxes, but When it comes to job creation, George W. Bush produced the worst results—less than a one percent increase over eight years—of any president since the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) started keeping records in 1939. But, that's not what you're advocating, moron. You said , "Repair our freeway systems, Replace antiquated bridges and tunnels" that is not done with "private capital" it's done with taxpayer dollars.

S.1769 - Rebuild America Jobs Act
A bill to put workers back on the job while rebuilding and modernizing America.
A small piece of the larger jobs bill proposed by President Obama, S.1660, this bill would invest $50 billion in infrastructure repair, plus another $10 billion in an infrastructure bank, which would provide loans for private, revenue-generating infrastructure projects. The spending would be offset with a 0.5% surtax on all income earned above $1 million.
Two Infrastructure Jobs Bills Die in Senate
by Tanya Snyder
Two competing versions of a transportation-related job creation bill went down yesterday in the Senate. The first, the Rebuild America Jobs Act (S.1769), was a Democratic proposal, modeled on President Obama’s job creation bill, to invest $50 billion for infrastructure and another $10 billion as seed money to create a new national infrastructure bank.
Given Republican opposition to what they consider a repeat of a failed stimulus – and to an infrastructure bank they say is unnecessary at best and politicized at worst — the failure of the bill is no surprise. The bill garnered a slim majority — 51-49 — but not enough to overcome the threat of a GOP filibuster.
With the exeption of the Keystone pipeline, that's what Obama and the democrats have been saying, troll.

((If the service is deemed value added by the target audience, they won't have to provide it for free.))
The target audience does deem the service as " value added", by excepting the job and the benefits that go with it.
((Really? Let's say it's 2012 and I was offered a job at GM as a machinist. Would I have a choice in the matter of whether or not to join a union? ))
((Please refer me to the Supreme Court decisions that prevent closed shops.))
Ans: In Pattern Makers v. NLRB, 473 U.S. 95 (1985), the United States Supreme Court held that union members have the right to resign their union membership at any time.
The Supreme Court, in Communication Workers v. Beck, 487 U.S. 735 (1988), ruled that objecting nonmembers cannot be required to pay union dues. The most that nonmembers can be required to pay is an agency fee that equals their share of what the union can prove is its costs of collective bargaining, contract administration, and grievance adjustment with their employer.
Justum, this information comes directly from National Right to Work Legal Defence Foundation web site.
This is also on the foundations web page.
Question: Can I be required to be a union member or pay dues to a union?
Answer: You may not be required to be a union member. But, if you do not work in a Right to Work state, you may be required to pay union fees.
Employment relations for almost all private sector employees (other than those in the airline and railroad industries) are covered by the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA).
Under the NLRA, you cannot be required to be a member of a union or pay it any monies as a condition of employment unless the collective bargaining agreement between your employer and your union contains a provision requiring all employees to either join the union or pay union fees.
Even if there is such a provision in the agreement, the most that can be required of you is to pay the union fees (generally called an "agency fee.")
If you are not a member, you are still fully covered by the collective bargaining agreement that was negotiated between your employer and the union, and the union is obligated to represent you. Any benefits that are provided to you by your employer pursuant to the collective bargaining agreement (e.g., wages, seniority, vacations, pensions, health insurance)are not affected by your nonmembership.
((This is only one of the inaccuracies of your moronic post. Snyder didn't end unions, he (and both legislative houses) simply have said if you don't want to be in a union, you don't have to be. For years unions have coerced and bullied people and companies to perpetuate them. Now, people have a choice.))
Your post is inaccurate. People have always had a choice. Under the NLRA, nobody can be forced to join a union. This law has been reinforced by several supreme court decisions. The only thing "RTW" laws do is allow some workers to receive the benefits of a collective bargaining unit without having to pay the fees. Basically a right to a free ride.

According to the GAO. The U.S. Treasury’s bailout fund has lost about $9.7 billion on its rescue of General Motors Co. The auto rescue saved 1.14 million jobs in 2009 at automakers and companies that depend on the industry, according to the Center for Automotive Research. A collapse would have reduced personal income in the U.S. in 2009 and 2010 by $96.5 billion, costing the federal government $28.6 billion in extra jobless benefits and reduced Social Security contributions and income taxes in those years, the center said.
((This is propaganda at its best, since other companies would have immediately increased production and the suppliers would have sold more parts to those companies.))
That argument has been proven to be BS many times. Not that it matters to you, since it doesn't comply with your preconceived notions.
