Yeah, but seriously, it's not the trade unions that are breaking into storefronts and burning cars. It's the stupid fucking kids that are acting like stupid fucking kids. I'm all for a good car burning from time to time, but the stupid fucking kids are distracting all the media attention away from what is a legitimate grievance by the working class.
And 60 is minimum retirement age, i.e. not full pension. That's currently at 65 and the proposal is to make it 67. So, while more generous, the age differential isn't that tremendous vis à vis the States.
Oh, and when the Fiscal Poop Commission comes after our Social Security next year, we'll probably just sit on our arses watching Dancing with the Slobs or something dumb. And that sucks.
Two additional examples that come to mind:
John "The UN does not exist" Bolton - US ambassador to the U.N.
Elaine Chao - hates working people - Secretary of Labor
Work blocked the Wonkettes today - which sucks - so I'm just posting now, but that quote reminds me of Sen. Byrd's speech on Michael Vick dogfighting. "Barbaric....let that word resound from hill to hill and from mountain to mountain and from valley to valley across this broad land."
