I'm not sure if it is the same everywhere but here in California we can choose to have our union dues go to a charity instead of the union.

Bill, they may have to exclude quite a few as there were many slave owners in our early Govt. I too, despise History being mutilated to satisfy a handful of lib's. Although I find it offensive and revolting, slavery was legal and accepted at that point in America. It doesn't reduce the contributions of great men like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, or Abe Lincoln (who's wife owned slaves so he technically was an owner also). I think most will agree their's being considerably more than Obama has, or probably ever will. I'd have left too. I can't stand long live Obama chants. Did the union give the the holiday pay for the dreadful day back? I just wondered if they were serious enough about it to disolve the holiday money also. PS. late congratulation on the 100 straight serious good shooting. J.Woolsey
