Going on a cruise ship now is like getting involved in politics. When the cruise ship breaks down, you can smell all of the politics going on. Overfowing toilets, lack of running water, lack of food, unbearable stench inside of boat, and no leadership to correct any of these problems. I can see how the unions feel under our Republican politicians. The same problems exist as on the trapped cruise ship. The unbearable stench of lack of proper leadership and the forcing of unfair laws on the people. We seem to have the same options as the people trapped on the cruise ship. Grin and bear it. If going on a cruise ship is going to be like this, I don't ever want to be a part of it. You can also have your limited politics.
