    Unions don’t create or provide jobs; unions merely exploit the jobs created and provided by others

    Unions in the beginning were worth while

    no Unions are one of the sectors destroying this country
    why should you have to work harder than the next guy you both get the same raise.

    Teachers Unions Tenor!!!!! what a joke 40% of teachers with tenor need to be fired
    Teachers bitch about not getting paid enough Ok pay them more but cut out thier Medical free for life when they retire

    “The question of the self to the Self?”Why usohld I write is the question of the self to the Self in me and on that, I have only one answer to give and that is “ when Shiva comes on the scene of life Shiva even envelops His Instrument to attain Silence as Shiva”. So, as the Non Being of life as I am as the ordinary for life, please do exclude me on what is happening on earth at the level of atmosphere plus how the Formless Energy of the Formless as Shiva is materially invading the psyche of earth on all fronts of life for His Instrument as the Non Being of life in life as the ordinary for life.I have been made to make the above comment – I do not know why? – A question that stands To Whom It May Concern? All that I can say on the question is for the wisdom to look at me and not Shiva – Beyond this; I can only say that I will continue to write because I have to fulfill my duty as the Non Being of life on behalf of Shiva in me. For this comment, I had to choose the title uncategorised .
