I am sick to my stomach about this boarder and every other crisis this guy has created in the last 2 years. Our tax dollars this administration is using is just going down the toilet. I for one, did not vote for him, nor to use my money in this way. Don't we have say in how it is distributed??? I guess not, us peons just have to do as we are told. Back in the day, early 70's when I was working I belonged to a union. Early 80's I dropped out of it, I guess I just didn't agree with the direction they were going. Our union was losing members so they made our shop a closed shop so we had to pay dues anyway. A group of us got together to take the union to court and find out just where our dues were going. Well, we knew they were spending our money on more things then just negotiating contracts. Race cars, dinners, etc. Took them to court and won. I forget how much percentage we got back but it was quite alot. Kind of the same thing with this government. Just a little vent guys, sorry for the long post.
