Unions Help People

We visited South Carolina last week. We were surprised by the billboard/ads that were anti-union on highways, newspapers, and TV.  Apparently, Boeing is trying to kill unions in the state. Employees at Boeing need to wake up and look at how unions can protect your health, your job, and provide benefits that the company doesn't want you to have. Union activists have been threatened, according to the news

Don't worry, South Carolina. Union organizers are not going to leave your state.

>  Ohio Gov. John Kasich is waiting for a message from God as to whether or not he should run for President (see Plunderbund). We might all want to send some texts/Facebook posts to Kasich, identify ourselves as God, and tell him to stay in Ohio and do his job. Apparently, Ohio still lags in job growth.

Thinking about going to college?

Many years ago, I was able to go to college by securing bank loans.  It took me 10 years, but I paid back every penny. I got two degrees from a land grant university, and I was able to use both of them for my career as a teacher.

Today prospective college students are looking at 'colleges' run by corporations that offer easy access, excessive fees, and overblown job prospects.  Unfortunately, many students are finding themselves in deep debt and without a job. Some of these 'colleges' have been put out of business by the government, or are being sued by former students.

Before you sign any forms or give any money to an 'admissions' officer, do your homework. Do a Google search with the name of the college and lawsuit. You'll be amazed at what you'll find.

If a college is more concerned with making a profit and increasing dividends to investors, stay away.
