Really...you are using a "news outlet" that has a video on it linking Romney to the Sopranos and Goodfellas? REALLY??

Is election season over so we can stop the stupidity...and I support neither candidate. I'm tired of voting • sandwich or • of the year.

Listen, I get it. He's a bad man. He's management to the n'th degree. Personally, I think Romney will be worse for this country than Obama has been, but that is neither here nor there. Either way, we're screwed.

I see some of my earlier post was cut out due to the filters, but I know you guys and gals have heard the saying...

Well, well, well. What a shock. News of Bain Capital's evil continues to trickle out. The latest news involves Bain illegally busting a union organizing drive at a small airline they bought in the mid-80s. Looks like Mittens and Lorenzo really are birds of a feather. Any pilot who votes for this guy is a sucker.

Bringing something up from the 80s that isn't pro-pilot? Do you really want to go down the road of people's past history and how it negatively affects the industry? Because I can think of one particular b1900 operator...

I'm always more than happy to talk about GIA if you'd like. Please just start up a thread for it. This thread is about Mitt Romney and his anti-pilot, union-busting ways.

Actually, and I'm heading to bed here, but I will defend ClearedToThe's position. You were also in the same era in the same realm of busting unions. The airline was a charter operation, and Gulfstream was a small operator with pay to play. So, actually I do feel this is a legitimate issue, since we are bringing up the past. If you are going to hold Romney's BUSINESS accountable, then your actions should be on the table also.

How much input do you think Romney had in this? I'm not saying he was a pawn in pay to play games as you were, but do you really think he was intimately involved in the RLA issues and union busting himself? Really???? I already said I am anti Romney; and I am anti Obama. Is November here yet???

You paid to fly an airplane full of paying passengers which was taking a job from someone else. Get off your high horse, this in turn put someone else on the street. Isn't that what you're so upset that Romney did? Send jobs overseas but you yourself paid to do a job that someone else could have been paid to do to put food on their table.

Such a hypocrite.

Like I said, I'm happy to talk about GIA in a thread devoted to that.

As for Romney, read the article. Bain Capital was a tiny company at the time. They were just getting going, and this was one of their first big deals. There can be no doubt that Mitt was thoroughly involved in every aspect of it.

Disclosing the details of the Osama bin Laden raid was irresponsible and illegal acts. Cost over 40my men their lives including 22 from SEAL TEAM 6.
