    s is suWhen Chuck Norris was in middle school, his English teacher assigned an essay: "What is courage?" He received an A+ for turning in a blank page with only his name at the top.pposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.

    Let me guess, because he's secretly a Muslim Socialist out to destroy America?

    There's a slight difference between the $4/hour and the actual pay plus benefits they pulled in. Nice push to the extreme!

    Not destroy, just "fundamentally change". His own words.

    The blame falls on the labor unions who priced themselves out of the market.

    More like five times that amount, and with a lot less of a sense of responsibility and craftsmanship of half a century ago.

    Seven times that or 9.5 times that, FC, $38 per hour in wages and benefits according to this source correcting "wildly misleading" figures provided by conservatives, which count retirement benefits. Retirement benefits should be considered in the cost of employees somehow. For this source to discount them entirely because they don't go directly to the employee right now is to discount part of the benefits package -- so more than 9.5 times the absurd labor price listed by this RonPaul12 character whose concerns hardly sound Paul-like. Did you utter this absurdity because you are a troll, RonPaul12? Or are you just ignorant?

    Yep, i had my daughter include all these numbers in a report for one of her High School classes.

    The teacher was always complaining about the War On Terror and calling it a "failure" for reasons of cost both of money and human lives.

    My daughter showed how many more people died violently just living in Detroit than had died keeping the Terrorist's at bay on two major war fronts and how much cheaper it was in dollars to fight them in the middle east than to endure the economic turmoil of attacks like 9/11 on a regular basis.

    The teacher said "That cannot be true" so my daughter gave her all her sources, official government statistics for everything she wrote.
