That’s a lot of words to prove you haven’t given it any thought, but you are correct in that assertion, alone of the assertions scattered throughout your rant. “As mentioned, I am not going to pick your “facts” apart, because I have school work to finish.” That’s right up there with “the dog ate my homework!” I didn’t realise I was arguing with a school kid who believes adult discussions of economics are “faux populist hornswaggle” but most socialists talk like you, regardless of their age, so it was an easy mistake to make.

“Unions are the reason we have 40 hour work weeks, paid vacation, and what remains of the middle class.” Nonsense: Unions hate the middle class: they are the Bourgeois so hated by Marxists.
