Congressman Pete Stark has voted against the Wars and their funding in every vote. He is against the spending on a WAR MACHINE when their is so much more that needs to be done back home here in California.

Thanks "Frank Mockery" or should I say "Summer Hemphill" or "Brash Brazen" or "Bong Sativa" or whatever your "nom de jour" is. So what if Stark is reelected. He will be a nobody in a GOP controlled Congress and a soon to be GOP controlled Senate and GOP President in the White House. I know you liberals are in full on panic mode now so let the insults fly.... it's all you have left! The American people are waking up and have had it with your Socialistic ideology being pushed on them.

Oh and by the way, this should make your day "Frank"... http://www.scpr.org/blogs/news/2012/05/16/6154/authorities-raid-medical-marijuana-dispensary-font/ How's that Obama "Hope and Change" working out for you LMAO!

Do you work for STARK Edward? I'd suggest you look at life around you and see where all this liberal government management has gotten us! In DEBT up to our eyeballs! Is that what you want? Generally, there is a place for unions UNTIL they start dictating how their members vote, use union dues on candidates that members DO NOT support, support candidates that only feather union job nests, and keep in the loop of receiving government business so that the union supported politicians get elected! Do you not see a problem here Edward? Better work conditions, retirement and regular wages are all good. But, siding up with one political party that wants to raise taxes and generally be "unfair" in dealing with businesses is NOT a good thing. And knowing you and the other liberals, I know you want all of life to be "fair", right? Remember, most union members shop at WALMART! Does this make them traders to the union cause? Does this show a double standard?

Wow, a personal reply from "RON". No, I do not work for Pete Stark, I am a Union member with the IBEW and only occasionaly find myself using Wal Mart to find items that others do not carry. Unions will ask for contributions for candidate but are not allowed to use Union Dues for political contributions. COPE is the political arm of the Unions and is donated to by members who feel that the candidate(s) is speeking for them and their jobs. Churches dictate, from the pulpit, who to vote for or you will go to HELL if you vote for the other guy. Unions make a sugestion of candidates and a list of who is running for office that will make jobs for their members. Unions will back both Democrats and Republicans if they are "Labor Friendly". Right now, the GOP is anything but "Labor Friendly". Romney is so anti-labor and pro- Big Business that there is no guessing who to vote for if you are a Union Member or work for a living. President Obama is "labor's Choice" in 2012. Working conditions, retirirement, wages and Health care "are" the issues all Americans who work for someone else are interested in right now. Taxes on Earnings are tolerated when you have earnings. The more you earn, the more that is left for you and your family aftert Taxes, when income is taxed. This is "Progressive taxation" When assets or asset ownership is taxed, you end up with less than you started with. This is Regresive Taxation. (Like measure "H" in Union City) .
