No, because it's not illegal, even if you people would like to make it so.

Organized crime is organized labour, but the other way around only applies when organized crime takes control of a labour union. But unfortunately that does not automatically mean 2x organized labour and double efficience. Maybe if two organized crime organizations shared a labour union, but I think they would fight eachother and then the union would be only half as organized. Maybe organized crime needs something like a union to settle disputes so they can more effectively run the labour union, but the oversight would mean the union would be kept in check by the other union, so it would only be as efficient as the overseeing union. Maybe that crime union needs twice as many crime organizations in it to double production and lift the brakes on the slave union.

I could say the same thing about organized religion and be more accurate...

Capitalism is indeed organised crime, and we are all its victims.

Dennis Lyxzen is better than you, Alex.

Then unorganized labor is unorganized crime, and all labor is a crime of some kind, so down tools, folks, and let's head for The Big Rock Candy Mountain!

Corporate executives who raid employee pension funds and slash their benefits to provide a slight boost to their own bonuses, on the other hand, are just hunky-dory.

Yeah, look at all the criminal stuff they've done, like making a 40 hour work week the standard, doing away with child labor, ensuring that people get paid overtime for working longer hours, ensuring proper breaks during the workday, making it illegal to fire someone for medical reasons, etc.

Organized Labor is Organized Crime

The sad part is that "Alex" is probably someone who benefits from the presence and influence of organized labor, either directly or indirectly, like almost all of the workforce.

Just because some American unions are controled by gangsters, does not mean all are.
Outside America unions are autonomous bodys that work for the workers.

Organised fundies is organised treason.

Damn criminals demanding fair wages and safe working conditions! It's like they think making a living and living to be able to spend it are some kind of human right. Don't they realize that tycoons need that money?

12/13/2012 7:01:33 AM

So, working is a crime?

Boo, organized labor! Yay corporate serfdom!

Government is organized crime.

Officer: Do you know why I pulled you over?

Motorist: Because this is a speed trap, and you have a quota?

"Stand and deliver!"

(Challenge of highway robbers in old England, not the math movie.)

"Organized Labor is Organized Crime"

...says Alex, typing away in his decrepit old trailer, waiting for his next welfare cheque, seeing as he's probably never worked a day in his life, to know the difference between the protections that unions represent, and being in constant fear of receiving that dreaded pink slip, as one of Romney's serfs.

I've already heard that there's ripples of redundancy rumours going around the branches of Staples here in the UK. After all, Mittens spent $800 million on his campaign, and to a billionaire such as him, even that amount is hurting him; that chunk o' change is no mean shortfall, and he's gotta claw it back somehow.

Ergo, unions. Q.E. and D., Alex.

12/13/2012 8:51:54 AM


Yeah, fighting for decent wages and safe working conditions is just horrible. If only everyone could be pure and sinless like the Republican overlords.

Thinking Allowed

I work as a independent home health care provider. Before the union that represents me came into play, I was making minimum wage, no vacation pay and no option to buy into affordable health insurance. If I got hurt on the job, I was out of luck and had to pay for any medical attention on my own. Grant it, they've pulled some bonehead moves where I'm like "What the hell?", but in general, I'm better off with what they've done.

So please Alex explain to me again why my union is a bad thing.

Stupid but I don't think it's good enough to be fundie.

Enjoy your weekend Alex.

Brought to you by organized crime.

12/13/2012 10:03:26 AM


I get that this is derpy but how is it fundy?

12/13/2012 10:28:17 AM


Go sit over there next to Ann Coulter, whose daddy used his G.I bill to go to law school and became an anti-labor lawyer, providing Ann with her silver spoon.

12/13/2012 10:53:29 AM


Nice zinger. Too bad it's also a non-sequitur.

12/13/2012 10:59:58 AM


Well it can be. But so can pretty much ANYTHING. Including, say, businesses, churches, gov'ments...

12/13/2012 11:25:50 AM


Let's face it, you corporate mother-fuckers would be perfectly happy with a return to indentured servitude. Earning a decent wage and having safe working conditions should not be optional, asshole.

12/13/2012 11:32:35 AM


Tell me that again after another church covers up a priest raping a child.
