Democrat Threatens “Blood in the Street” Over Union Vote

“There will be blood,” State Representative Douglas Geiss threatened from the floor of the Michigan House of Representatives as its members debated legislation that eventually made Michigan the nation’s 24th right to work state. Union thuggery is not uncommon or new. It was Jimmy Hoffa, Jr., who said this about the Tea Party: “Let's take these son-of-a-bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong.”

Unions are at peace as long as they get their way. Consider this from Breitbart’s Big Government when Steven Crowder approached union protestors with questions about their responses to what elected Michigan representatives had done on Right-to-Work legislation. Crowder was assaulted, and one person threatened to shoot him.

“In addition to the assault on Crowder, union members tore down a tent that had been pitched by Americans for Prosperity; Breitbart News' Lee Stranahan captured the union members' attack as the tent collapsed, with people inside, as union marshals looked on.”

Of course, I’m not saying that every union member is a thug. There are a lot of people in unions who have to be there because of the way our laws are written. Right-to-work legislation’s purpose is to fix this inequity.

Michigan is the most heavily unionized state and has one of the highest rates of unemployment. New businesses wanting to locate in the Wolverine State can’t compete in terms of market realities because of union contracts and union demands.

It’s shocking that a sitting President dismisses the anarchist tactics of one of his largest political supporters. The Nazi Brown Shirts come to mind.

The history of the labor movement in this country is a history of purposeful disorder. “As it entered the industrial age full blast in the 1870s, America had plunged into ‘the bloodiest and most violent labor history of any industrial nation in the world.’”[1]

Under the auspices of the first Education and Defense Society, “workers met regularly and drilled with firearms.”[2] On May 4, 1886, during a labor rally in Chicago’s Haymarket Square, anarchists had thrown a bomb into police ranks, killing 7 policemen and injuring 70 more. The gathering had been organized to protest the killing of six striking workers at the McCormick harvester plant.

At the trial for the anarchist leaders, the following treatise, written by Johann Most, a leading American anarchist, was entered into evidence: Science of Revolutionary War — Manual for Instruction in the Use and Preparation of Nitro-Glycerine, Dynamite, Gun-Cotton, Fulminating Mercury, Bombs, Fuses, Poisons, and so forth.[3] Most’s guide consisted of information he gathered from his experience at an explosives' factory in Jersey City. “With a certain zest he contemplated using ‘hand grenades and blasting cartridges … the proletariat’s substitute for artillery.’ Larger bombs were even more promising: ‘That which reduces what had been solid rocks into splinters may not have a bad effect in a court or a monopolist’s ballroom.’”[4]

Like all romantic revolutionaries, most believed that humanity could be saved only “with blood and iron, poison and dynamite!”[5] As one would expect, “the Haymarket incident hurt the labor movement by associating it in public opinion with violence and revolution.”[6]

In 1912, because of a dispute over unionization, the Los Angeles Times building was dynamited and 21 persons killed. “Sixteen packets of bombs were found in the New York Post Office in April 1919.

In June 1919, bombs damaged the houses of the U.S. Attorney General, the mayor of Cleveland and judges in New York and Boston.”[7] In September 1920, a group of anti-capitalist anarchists set off a bomb on Wall Street, killing 38 people.

    They want war? Bring it!

  • Screeminmeeme

    Just like his daddy, Obama, the celebrated community organizer, is superb at fomenting outrage and hatred in his slobbering sycophants. He has encouraged lawlessness and incited riots, fracturing our country on a massive scale. Acrimonious division has been whipped up by Obama between races, genders, classes, workers, generations and the schooled vs the unschooled......great achievement by a Marxist.

    The union aggression and violence in Michigan yesterday was a direct result of his bidding and had his approval.

    Expect more.

    • YoureNoBetter

      As if godfatherpolitics doesn't foment outrage in its slobbering sycophants.

          As I just informed another Obama Zombie, Union supporting thug, attack the message not the messenger. To0 much work numb-nut? I don't insult easily. I have bigger fish to fry. I Just love firing a-holes like you. It give's me a satisfying sense of revenge. Remember Revenge. Your guru Obama used that word when he gave you numb-nuts your marching orders.

          Adios Troll have a good life while it last.

        • PatriotIsATroll

          And again you point out that nothing you say is worth listening to by making baseless assumptions.

          Nope just justice. Revenge is giving you more than you deserve in punishment. Which is rather hard to imagine.

          Hey, numb-nut. Don't listen.

        • NotSoSimple

          No, a fact or two is plain to see. You idiots think one fact proves major ideological theses true.

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NLORN6B3ZNGCAJTFHWWFUUEY4Q jong

          When you see the same faces at all the rallies the Unions put on you come to the logical conclusion that violence is just part of the Union play book. Not just one fact but, a way of doing (or not) things.

        • NotSoSimple

          No I won't, because I treat individuals as individuals.

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NLORN6B3ZNGCAJTFHWWFUUEY4Q jong

          Like what??? Where you there in Lansing??? I was. Violence was second nature to the Union Thugs while no one who was for this bill was arrested. No assumptions or stereotypes just facts and the truth.

        • YoureNoBetter

          "No assumptions or stereotypes just facts and the truth." To then be applied to other union members, which involves assumptions and stereotypes.

        • Apolloone

          So why are you hanging around? could it be you are feeling guilty? I was a union member in my young years, there was a time when unions represented quality work and a fair-days work for a fair days wage but just like our government Marxism Rules.

        • BigUgly666

          So?
          Just how many "handles" are you using here?

          However many I want, and it should be relatively obvious which one is me considering the kinds of names I use.

          Oh yes, many people here are trolls, they're just hiding in this cave called godfatherpolitics, spewing venom at groups of people all day long. This place is horrible well before I show up.

        • BigUgly666

          Well, congratulations!
          You spew as much, or more, than anyone else with each of your "handles" - so, congrats - you, all by your lonesome little self, make it much more "horrible" just by your presence.

      • karin zoanelli

        the answer to you and all the union thugs is this: WE AMERICAN have the

        RIGHT to work without interference and or threats. whoever turns to violence is wrong.

        the union is WRONG

        unions are outdated, their demands are self serving and do not serve the people they purporting to serve. in companies without unions the workers flourish, look at WalMart: everybody has health insurance, everybody has profit sharing, name one union job that does that.
        but the violklence they spreach is proof: they are outside of the law, and should be persecuted to the extent our laws allow.

        • Patriot

          Good going!
          Be prepared to be verbally assaulted. Stand strong and fight back! The trolls are out in full force today on all the conservative newsgroups.

        • Apolloone

          Good post Karin I believe most union workers are good employees, I can say this because I have been a member of three different unions the good people have to make up for what the thugs are supposed to do,somehow this sorry minority think they deserve something for nothing. A company doing business in America these days has a difficult time to say the least my sister and her husband shut down their coal mine because of our over-intrusive government and too many employees wanting something for nothing. Someone said we already had the greatest generation now we have the greedy generation. I agree from the rich to the poor way too many people are wanting something for nothing, We who ask what can we do for our country are a small minority, the large majority are now asking what can our country do for us, if the majority were patriotic we would't be in this mess.

      • Patriot

        Want to bet. Who is attempting to destroy the social fabric of this country and it's economy? Who helped to put a racist Arab Muslim into the peoples house? Who are the people who fight every effort at getting to the bottom of who this Marxist Socialist is? Who are the people that are sanding up for morality, our Constitution an our way of life? I suspect it's the good people on this board (most anyway) and I bet you aren't one of them are you?

        • YoureNoBetter

          "Now do you see why you are so despised?"

          Because you feel like you don't control the world and you need someone to hate and blame. It has nothing to do with being a conservative, it's just you.

        • Patriot

          You see numb-nut, I do control the world. At least my little world which is more than I can say about you. You need someone to tell you when to do it and how to do it because your obviously unable to think for your self. Do you dress yourself in the morning yet or is someone else still doing it for you?

          Instead of hurling personal put your man or women pants on and address the questions you were asked a-hole.

        • YoureNoBetter

          As always, you can't make a comment without making baseless assumptions and stating them as fact. Again, why your politics are completely worthless.

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NLORN6B3ZNGCAJTFHWWFUUEY4Q jong

          Hardly baseless. Most liberals like your self want to have a marxist government hold their hands 24 hours a day including going to the bathroom(for the small percentage of you liberals who are potty trained)

        • YoureNoBetter

          You wouldn't know Karl Marx from Groucho Marx. You hardly know what Marxism stood for and you, or none of your tiny ilk, can draw any comparisons between Marxism and America of today. But, you may think Social Security is Marxism. You may also believe that the Sun revolves around the Earth, But who else, with a brain, gives a sh-t what you morons think.

        • Patriot

          Just as I figured.

        • The Oracle

          What's you world? Is it shooting gophers on the prairie? Is it sniffing glue? You are no more of a patriot then a anarchist who spouts anti-Americanisms every time you touch your keyboard. What have you accomplished? No one tells me what to do and I have lived better than you, have more than you, traveled more than you and know more than you know. I don't go around spewing hatred, bigotry and divisiveness. History has driven you rats back in your holes over the centuries, but like the vermin you are, who are driven by jealousy and hate, you rear your ugly head once again. But time is against you and your day is ending. People are being exposed to the venom in your heart and 2012 was the turning point. No one is going back to Jim Crow and ignorance and you and yours will be marginalized one day, and it's coming soon.

          Just a little FYI oh wise one: The Democrat Party was the part to fight FOR keeping slavery LEGAL, worked to IMPOSE the Jim Crow laws, and the Dred Scott decision. Have a nice day!

        • walter

          Phillip you're correct, but you "forget" to point out that the parties reversed roles in the late 1960's. Ever since RM Nixon implemented the "southern strategy" the democrats have been the party of helping the oppressed seek a better life. The repubs are the party of the angry white guys and the gals who love 'em, but that's not enough anymore as the 2012 election showed.

        • Patriot

        • maxiegal

          You are full of yourself and are one of the most ignorant breed alive. You hate you father for his honesty and you family for their faith in God. Your low self esteem stems from your inability to think at a higher level and keeps you filled with anger and hate towards those who can. Your thoughts are totally disconnected and you are a racist. You want to strike people who have scruples and a good paying job. You have no friends, just people who will put up with you because you amuse them with your utter stupidity ans scattered actions. That's just you Dude. Your moniker suits you perfectly for you are no better than the least in this country.

        • maxiegalTheFictionWriter

          Haha it's funny when you people think making things up about me is going to bother me. It's pretty much the same as when you make things up about others to pretend your politics are better. Reasonable people see right through it.

        • Truthsleuth

          If it did not bother you, you would not have responded. Now you have to attempt to prove that you are not what you truly are. You are indeed a sad sort of what ever it is you aspire to be. It is not fiction when it is true and you have just proven it by trying to make it politics. We .have no political standard and make a living doing what we do. You were simple. You respond to everything with glib cliche. Nothing with substance or meaningful, rather unconnected words with no meaning. One thing you are not and that is "reasonable". One thing that you are is pathetic.

I have had the displeasure of having to work with some of these buttwipes they won't work and don't want anyone else to work they are supporters of Marxism but are too stupid to realize it, their idea of a days work is to carry a strike sign or sabotage a company facility.

        • Patriot

          Thanks Apolloone.

          It's really getting boring responding to some of these Troll Obama Drones.

          When you present facts they resort to name calling. This is their hallmark. Have you noticed that this board is being inundated with them today?

          The fact that they are too stupid to realize it is what's at the heart of this whole thing. People, we need to teach our children well. If that doesn't work, remember "Spare the rod spoil the child." I think that there has been a whole hell of a lot of spoiling going on over the past several decades!

          Unfortunately, most don't even realize that they are useful idiots and are being used as such.

          Have you noticed that these Obama Zombies just simply don't answer the questions that are put to them. They can't even defend their defenseless position. I Guess verbally attacking people is their forte, especially when they don't have to deal with them face-to-face. Oh, well.

        • The Truth Seeker

          What asinine tripe- no evidence, just bigotry unleashed. You are a gutless guttersnipe who hides behind the word "patriot". What in G-d's name make an insulting pig like yourself a "patriot?" The essayist Samuel Johnson stated, "The last refuge of a scoundrel is patriotism." A lowlife like you hides behind some phony name and makes outrageous and insipid claims and accusations and is backed up by the other dolts and idiots who crave this fetid and rotting garbage. What's your claim that he's Arab Muslim, wow that's original. His father was an Kenyan, not Arab and his mother was a white Protestant American, whose roots in America go back probably farther than yours. Your claim of "destroying the social fabric of this country," is so idiotic it defies logic no less imagination. Where has this fabric been destroyed? Because he's pro union, pro women, pro-education, pro-fair taxes on the most able to pay? Is that anti-American, you dunce? All you uneducated twits can rave about is Obama. All you dopes can write about is the destruction of America and our way of life. Cite the ways? As I recall we lost 8 million jobs because of the crash and the resulting recession, of which zero had to do with Obama.

          But, for you stupid and insulting morons, the stock market doubled, unemployment dropped 40%, 15 million autos will be made, housing prices are going up, the inventory of unsold property is shrinking, the banks are loaded with money we are getting out of the last unpaid for war and healthcare is now available for 54 million uninsured. Maybe you noticed that the government is selling the AIG stock and reaping in about $23 billion in profits. Real capitalism in my book.

          But to you asinine clowns this is Marxism. Marxism never existed, but communism did and is there any comparison with us to the Soviet Union through its history? Of course not! Not one of you geniuses could compare their state production, their quotas, their regulated wages, their five year plans, gulags or anything else. Any comparison is completely idiotic, but idiocy is rife here and it is echoed 24/7. So every one who disagrees with your brand of flat-earth thinking, racism, hatred and Bible thumping is in your words a "despicable human." Well you have ruled out a vast majority of this country and the world.

        • Patriot

          What a sorry little wimp. You really are one of the lost aren't you a-hole.

          Some stereotypes fit. Like unionized slugs who can't compete in the market, they need the government holding their damp, quivering, corpulent hands so they don't fall flat on their face.

        • The Truth Seeker

          Right or wrong, the unions stand up for what they have gained since the 1870's and the Depression. They built a strong middle class and many of them are just as conservative as some of you haters. If you ever worked in a factory or an assembly line or a trade you would be Goddamn happy for a union to fight for your healthcare, working conditions, and benefits.

          Unfortunately you clowns are so stupid and have so little knowledge of history that it is pitiful. Before Reagan over 95% of the working folks in this country had a defined benefit for a pension. It was fought for and well appreciated. Then the right wing, led by people like former Justice Lewis Powell, a Republican who sat on the high court for many years, decided to call for the swamping of Washington with thousands of lobbyists representing big business. The rest is history, which if you could read or open your blind eyes, you could find the story in Jeff Madrick's, The Age of Greed, and Hedrick Smith's, Who Stole the American Dream. It wasn't the Democrats, or your favorites the Marxists, who invented the 401K and shifted the pension responsibility to Wall Street, the money managers and to yours truly. Now the defined benefit is history, and the average moron like yourself has about $17K in their 401K. It wasn't the liberals that encouraged you to use your 2nd mortgage and your private equity line as a piggy bank.

          Personally, I am retired, own my own home in a very well-healed corner of America. I worked on Wall Street and Main Street and saw the good, bad and ugly of both. But for sure, all of you have always had personal responsibility for your own skin. No American so-called commie took it away, before or now. If you haven't saved enough, tough sh-t. I have, and my wife and our married children are quite comfortable, we all have been in the private sector for 4 generations, and by the way vote Democratic.

        • Conservativesniper

          One thing I forgot, I am DEAD SET AGAINST public service unions. I am a student of history because those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it. Even the deity of modern democrats, FDR, was against public service unions. Scott Walker did the State of WI a huge favor when he had public service employees contribute more to THEIR retirement. And that was what eliminated the deficit of the State of Wisconsin., from 1.5 billion dollars to a surplus of about $300,000,000. Left wing politics in this country fail because they are philosophically against the American ideal.

        Are you kidding!!! Unions once were necesary, and they have performed a great service for the working man---union and non-union. But now the pendlelum has swung. It is the unions who are now the bullies and the thugs, not corporations. And most union people now have tremendous pay and bloated benefits, far more than non-union workers, many who are highy trained with university degrees in the sciences, etc. Their value to society, in most cases, far exceeds the rank and file union worker. I have no problem with union workers getting a fair income, etc, and to have save working conditions (a must!), but when they riot for even more, when they are is just going too far. And the majority who are non-union, are sitting up and noticing (finally) what is going on.

  • dondehoff

    I trust the news reporter will file charges against the thug and that he is given a at least 90 days in the poky for agravated assult. Surely, with all the cell-phone cameras around there is ample proof. The union rank and file have been led far astray by their leaders. Union leadership has failed to address "world commerce and labor". They cannot continue as if they were just competing with local management, they are competing with overseas lower prices and labor. Government too is at fault with their 35% corporate tax. Any high school student knows that a company passes along any and all taxes to the consumers. The DOJ needs to get on top of this NOW, else there witll be much blood in the streets. The non-union workers are not going to continue to be clubbed around, by thugs. I would estimate 80% of the union members are reasonable people and I also suspect the thugs are being compensated, which moves the reponsibility line up into the leadership. That law that now protects the union leadership needs to be revoked---if it is not revoked, then the DOJ (and the Administration)is "part of the problem"

  • Free America

    Michigan is the most heavily unionized state and has one of the highest rates of unemployment.

    This is due to the fact that there is so much Democrat and union control in the state. The unemployment will just continue to rise there as long as both these forces are in control. Democrats and unions do not know how to make an economy thrive, they only know how to spend more money this country does not have. The roof on top of the house will soon come crumbling down. This ruthless and evil behavior is the reason why I am against unions today. They are all a bunch of greedy people who cannot be thankful for what they have in this looming economy. It is what is best for "me" rather than what is best for the company. No wonder why so many companies do not like and feel threatened by unions today. You could not pay me enough money to join a union and would never work somewhere I was required to be part of one. Glad I reside in one of the other 23 states where people have the cholce to join a union. The other states that do not have this right will start going down hill next if they have not already. You see the proof in CA and NY that the Democrat and union control does not work in the long run. It is just a total farce and the Democrats like you to believe it does work -- nothing but a big lie!

Now that idiots and fraud have voted him back in, now watch how everything will fall to pieces. He has cause more hatred than any one man ought to be able to accomplish.

We are seeing the begiinng of the resulst in the 2012 elections, mor progressive Democrats than ever were elected. The more the Republicans disfranchise the American wage earner and the working poor the more progressives will be elected. At thlis rate, by 2020 there will be full conroll of both ouses of Congress and the Presidency by moderate and progressive Democrats and Republicans in office, things are going to change for the better for the American worker and the 47% percenters.

      Hey numb-nut! What local do you belong to? Did they

      No need to respond it was a rhetorical question (look it up).

      Another one exposed. Don't feed the trolls.

  • Fred

    All union people are anarchists". Y guys are something else. I predict the Rep governor will be beat in 2014. And many Democrats will win. The sneaky passage of this law in MI is not popular with patriotic Americans who are not in unions but recognize the contributions they have made to workers everywhere. You guys are clueless as to what is going on. And for that we are grateful. Keep thinking Obama only won because of unions and your wonderful people called moochers. Go get Karl to pick your next candidate and run as good a campaign as he ran this time. we will be laughing as we did just three weeks ago. I know the evil got it all by fraud. Hahaha photo IDS will fix all that. sure. go geezers. Eat more chicken.

    • Patriot

      Hey friend it sounds like your the one who is clueless. Your time is over get use to it. Remember Wisconsin. You lefties were proclaiming the same thing there too. Remember what happened. You got your Commie butts kicked and rightfully so. People are fed up with you and your union goods and socialist crap! Get use to getting your butt kicked at every turn. We Americans won't tolerate your kind of thuggery any longer. Enough is enough. Get the drift Numb-Nut? You take advanteous of those not blessed with intelegence and who can't reason or make sound decisions, Those legally declared mentally incompetent, engage in voter fraud, voter supression, etc, and yet you have the balls to brag about winning. You people are societies moochers and takers. Hey numb-nut, and I call you that affectionately, if we would have had voter ID's you low-life's would have stood a chance. And remember, just because you won a crooked election, doesn't make you right. History is replete with examples of why your wrong. After all the German People, in a democratic election elected your uncle Adolph, didn't they. How did that one work out idiot! Grow up, do your homework, study your history and join the human race.

      TROLL ALERT!
      Here's another one!

      • Uptite

        Mind you, we need a licence for more insignificant things, like picking up an antibiotic from the local pharmacy, or checking out bowling shoes, yet no need to show ID to vote!?!?...this was simple thievery of an election, as they knew it was the only way to win it. I read that article of the mentally ill being corralled to the RMV for ID's then to the voting machines; that was just one instance - voter fraud ran rampant, but was never publicized by the liberal media, go figure!

    • Don39

      Only a stupid pro-union goon could not, does not see that unions DESTROYED Michigan and every state in which they shackled the work force. That makes you a supreme idiot and who cares what else you have to say from your vantage of stupidity? Jobs are gone for ever because of unions. Manufacturing is gone forever because of unions. If you have a union job it is on a short fuse because of unions, and that includes government service industry jobs! Even if like you a paid union goon, you better look for reeducation, we are coming for your job. Their will be no replacement.

    • DontTreadOnMe11

      You are FOS! It's obvious you do not live in Michigan (I have my whole life). you can keep your low life out of our states business, we don't need you. We have to many of your kind here already.

    obama supporting the unions is to be expected. He ain't got the sense God gave a goose when it comes down to what the people of the united States want and need.

    Unions are made up of COWARDS who show pack mentality.. Anyone of the cowards seen during yesterdays rally would run away if alone.

    • Patriot

      In another life, I sat in a number of criminal investigative interrogations involving several Union thiefs. It was like shooting fish in a barrel. Once they saw the videos, and was informed unless they came clean, they would be honeymooning in county jail that evening. What a bunch of girly-boys. They literally began pointing the finger at fellow union brothers and cried like babies. These guys are Cowards. They are only tough guys when in packs. Get them in a room by themselves and they become sissies!

  • Patriot

    State Representative Douglas Geiss is nothing more than a sissified bulling Obama Turd.
    In a real fight he would no doubt fold like a cheap suit.

  • Nikita63

    Douglass Gleiss needs to be arrested and CHARGED with promotion of TERRORIST activity and punished accordingly to the fullest extent of the law; along with every other union THUG who dares to attempt the overriding of the will of the people by violence or the threat thereof. If anyone at all dies as a result of this admonition, all, involved NEED to be charged with Murder, sedition and possibly Treason! These threats were made in the MICHIGAN legislatuire and that is a sorry thing to have happen ANYWHERE but particularly not in a State Legislature filled with lawmakers! How much longer are the rest of law abiding and hard put upon American Citizens going to take this crap from these criminals. I call them only what they ARE, by any legal measure or STANDARD!

  • Brendajanetorres

    Obama's Union Thugs!!! What is more important....The auto-makers union or safe cars, The teachers union or educated children, The Care-Givers Union or quality Care, Doctors unions or safe medical practices......Need I go on.....Federal Unions or the Voice of the People!

    • Patriot

      You sure summed that up nicely. Way to go Brendajanestorres! way to go!

      The vast majority of all newly created jobs are public sector union jobs. This needs to be made illegal! Very un American. Just like our so called president!

      No intelligence much like many of the trolls on this board. They engage in transference. For you Obama Zombies, transference is when you accuse your opposition of exactly what you are doing? I think we're onto you folks? :)

      Just bluster aka BS!

  • Hank

    As a dedicated marxost, albeit unadmitted, oboner is simply checking off the lines from his copy of the Hugo Chavez book on installing a Marxist State. Just as Chavez did in Venezeula, obama is ginning up the blood in the streets to ultimately shove the Boot of Marxism down on the neck of freedoms and liberties in America. The bloody boot prints of Marxism will become common place in short order. No, America is not exempt. Remember, America is merely a blip on the screen and will be void of freedoms and liberties in less than 300 years. Kind of sucks doesn't it.

          Better right than wrong. The Dems are much like numb-nut Biden. Always on the wrong side of history. Remember the civil rights movement? You numb nuts got left behind on that one. Not surprising since you guys were the ones wearing the sheets much like the exhausted Grand Dragon of the KKK, Sen. Byrd. May he never rest in any peace.

        • ItsNotSoSimplePatriot

          "Always on the wrong side of history."

          It's statements like that that make you nearly impossible to take seriously, especially wrapping me up with the KKK or even democrats for that matter. As far as I'm concerned anyone who subscribes to party politics (or ideologies) is next to useless.

        • Patriot

          You really need to write in cogent, understandable sentences. I thought I clearly stated what I was trying to get across to you. Pay attention and learn oh Grasshopper. Are you familiar with the reference?

          The KKK was the enforcement arm of the KKK. The fortunately former Senator Byrd was at one time the Exulted Grand Dragon of the KKK.
          Are you following along so far? What is it you don't understand. Just a rhetorical question no need to respond.

          If you can't take that as serious go play with your Obama Zombie friends.
          If you don't subscribe to a particular ideology you are pretty much useless as a human being let alone an American. Perhaps you chose the wrong word. No response required. It was just another rhetorical question.

  • rchguns

    The Union Bosses had better remember that as of this time they have yet to find the body of Jimmy Hoffa. If and when union workers Wake-up and take time to look around and see that the only people out there freeze in their rear ends off and fighting with police are union workers. It's a workers who will lose their jobs, look at Hostess, but the union reps, organizers and managers of the union haven't lost the day's pay and they sure haven't been out on the picket lines were skirmishes with the police. These union elites are using the rank-and-file to basically cover their rear ends and trying to make sure that the golden goose( the workers) keeps laying eggs. America had better get his act together and see that the only purpose unions serve is to protect the incompetent and the lazy workers who know that they cannot be fired or replaced.

  • USPatriotOne

    Obama and the ONE WORLD ORDER/U.N....all Communist all day long...!!!

    There
    was a time when unions were needed and provided a unified voice for
    workers rights and working conditions.Unions have now morphed into left
    wing political money laundering machines for the democrat party that
    cares less about the workers and more about lining the pockets of union
    bosses and filling the coffers of democrat politicians campaigns.

    Unions have evolved into parasitic entities that are sucking the
    lifeblood out of private as well as the public economy with unrealistic
    demands on struggling companies and towns and cities alike.It is way
    past time for them to go away.

    These "union" people just don't get it..........the country is trying to become some kind of "norm"......with people having jobs, but the idea that a "right to work" law would harm the unions is wrong. It just makes it possible to HAVE A JOB and NOT BE FORCED TO PAY UNION DUES. If a worker wants to be in the union, okay, if not, the woker should have that option too. As for the "asault" by the "goon"..........he shouldbe charged and jailed.......I'm not against unions but I am against unions who willingly destroy jobs through greed..........

      • Don39

        There are no individuals and no one for individual liberty in the sociocommunist left movement , that includes the pro-left and communist unions. I think that two elections pretty much support that. You can delude yourself that you believe in individualism, but being a leftist pretty much proves that a lie! Not having the guts to register and establish a profile , being a hit and run commenter of opportunity, contributes to your lack of credibility. It also leads me to believe you are a paid union goon.

          The tape was edited, and Faux Noise went bonkers, but in truth what was the Koch Bros and their phony PAC putting up a tent in the middle of a large protest over "midnight" legislation. My sense, is that come 2014 many of the Teapublicans in the State Houses will be toast.

  • IRONSIDE

    Yeah,before the coward sucker punched him, did you see that big fat pig telling him to shut the F up? He had to be a union auto worker with a gut like that and the money they make for watching robots? 56 bucks an hour? And they cut down a tent and try and lay on women, children and people in wheelchairs? I wish I was there and that big fat pig was telling me that. When his mouth opened wide enough when he said the F word--I bet he practices getting it open that wide during breaks and when he goes to the restroom--I'd of stuck my fist in that big fat mouth and that would have been the last word that pig said. Since I'm also in a wheelchair, my "special" black jack from 1925 would have made your voice a whole lot higher.Look up blackjacks from 1925 on the internet and you'll see what I mean. I'm sick of this crap, they want war??? Hey fat boy, you're not that far up the road from me, and with a gut like that, real easy to find. Maybe I'll come around you can try telling me that.

      • IRONSIDE

        We defend ourselves against violence and bigotry every day for no reason other than that is all the dems can do--create divide and hope for violence. If my wages are meager, at least they are honorable and not with some crooked union helping me keep my job while I drink and smoke pot at lunch. The benefit of the unions ended about 1960 and ever since, have lined their pockets and sucked up to dems so they would get my tax dollars. Nobody in a union, especially in Michigan deserves 56 bucks an hour while your cities and those left behind look like war zones. All thanks to the likes of you. Hope your proud. I would only get out my 'gat' when some fat MF tried to yell at me to shut up while he was taking part in the destriction of the country. Get off your pampered affirmitive action feminine butt and see what real people have to do.

        • Ann Coulter

          And corporate brigands who run Fortune 500 Companies deserve; deferred comp, stock options worth millions and compensation between 600 and 1000 times the average wage of their employees? Throughout the whole industrialized world our corporate executives are way over paid and under taxed. To a degree that is why we aren't that competitive in many industrialized circles. I would rather see a strong labor class, who are our consumers, then a widening disparity between the upper middle class and rich and the growing lower middle class. You xenophobes have no clue about what is going on outside your little sphere. Your characterization of Democrats is first built on a false premise and historical inaccuracies. History cites little evidence of "liberal" evidence of social violence. But, of course your limited and perverted view of the world defines your thinking. Union workers were protesting against "right to work" laws which emasculate protections for workers, plain and simple. You morons will defend you little piece of dirt to the death, but when others want to protect their livelihood, their jobs, their pensions, you turn a blind eye. What else is new?

        • jg112

          If you really believe that the UAW is getting 56 dollars an hour in their pockets, you are sadly mistaken. The figure includes heath care, pension vacation and other fringes. That 56 dollars an hour is the oldest trick in the book to make the union look bad during negotations. It seems like no one ever checks the math.
          It was the same a couple of years ago when the news reported that Longshoreman on the West Coast make 200,000 per year, but there salary is 29 dollars an hour. Figure it out, how many hours do you have to work to get 29 to equal 200,000. it is impossible.
          If any one wouls like to have a civil debate about the value of unions, I would be glad to do so.
          I am not going to debate with Name calling and ignorant responses and I will not answer the same.
          Thank you.

      • IRONSIDE

        Sorry, didn't mean to insult your husband. My "meager' wages are hard earned from a wheelchair and I can go to sleep each night knowing that no one was bullied into giving them to me. I went over 4 years with no raise because there is no money thanks to Obama. We got no stimulus here by stealing tax payer dollars. If someone attacks me, I have the right to defend myself and the biggest defense is against you and your ilk playing the race card everychance you get and inciting the very violence you now protest. what a hypocrite you are.

The video of the perpetrator would have been impounded and the DOJ and FBI would have had the tea partier incarcerated by now.

    Unions have outlived their usefulness.

  • am2sweet (sometimes)

    We need to get up a petition going to all elected officials to ABOLISH UNIONS. They are no longer needed and are nothing but thugs against the freedoms of America. We don't need those Communists in this country and the sooner we are rid of them the better for all workers.

    • The New Dealer

      You are an idiot! Unions serve as a counter-balance to management and in the "right to work" states compensation and benefits have constantly gone down and unemployment hasn't. Stupid statements like outlawing the right to organize has nothing to do with communism, you dolt. But corporations have the unlimited right to do what they wish with labor. Maybe you also want to outlaw wages and hours, over time, safety conditions, workers' compensation, etc. Have you ever worked? Doesn't sound like it.

      • Patriot

        Hey there that's your opinion of which many American's don't agree with.
        Unions serve as the collectors of money for the union bosses and politicians. They also act as boots on the ground for the politicians who are corrupt enough to avail themselves. During a political campaign over a decade ago, I was running for elective office. Sure enough the unions came a knocking on my door offering money in exchange for my backing their political agenda. This time it wasn't against Wal-mart but another American business success story, K-Mart. The money was tempting but my ethics wouldn't allow it. Besides, I don't like being used. You know, like America's useful idiots.

        am2sweet does have a point, like the buggy whip, unions for the most part have long outlived there usefulness. They have become a means of legalized theft. They live off the hard work and sweat of others and produce little themselves nor do they make a contribution to America's real society.

        After watching what was going on in Michigan, I for one say legally disband them.
        Lawlessness leads to anarchy. No place for that nonsense in a civilized society.
        We need to let the free market dictate things like wages, benefits, etc. we don't need thugs dictating those things. If you don't like what your employer is offering you, let your feet do the walking.

        Hope you find some agreement in the above. Just think about it and discuss it between yourselves. :)

    So you hate unions, but you love the corporations who used thugs, lock outs, scabs and violence they deemed over the decades. All of you working stiffs out there who now are Tea Baggers have short memories. Your love of corporate America is pretty one way, because the could give a damn for you and yours. The benefits for the average American through the efforts by the unions made the middle class and created great wealth in this country, and for sure the corporations have never really suffered.

    John Boehner getting bad reviews on ‘fiscal cliff’ talks

    Posted by Jon Cohen, Scott Clement and Aaron Blake on December 12, 2012 at 7:00 am

    By a better than 2-to-1 margin, registered voters disapprove rather
    than approve of House Speaker John Boehner’s performance during the
    fiscal cliff talks, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll – a negative rating due in large part to the lack of uniform support for him among Republicans.

    In contrast, Democrats overwhelmingly approve of the way President
    Obama is handling negotiations, even as registered voters split evenly
    on how the incumbent is handling the matter.

    While Obama is buoyed on the question by a high, 79 percent approval
    rating from Democrats, Boehner is saddled with a basically even verdict
    from GOP voters (39 percent approve, 37 percent disapprove) thanks to divisions within the congressional delegation he leads.

    Boehner has struggled to maintain party discipline among the most
    conservative congressional Republicans, many who rode the tea party wave
    into office in 2010. But in the poll, Boehner is weakest in the
    ideological middle. Nearly half of “very conservative” Republicans and
    independents (49 percent) approve of how Boehner is handling the
    negotiations, but that number drops to 35 percent among those who are
    “somewhat conservative” and further still — to 23 percent — among
    self-described “moderates.”

    Boehner’s relatively weak ratings comes at the heart of a month-long battle over Bush-era tax cuts on income over $250,000, an area of clear advantage for the president.exit polling in November showed six in 10 voters support tax rate hikes
    on income above $250,000 (or all income levels), a stance has contributed to Republicans’ difficult position.

    A separate Washington Post-Pew Research Center poll released last week found 53 percent of Americans said Republicans would be mostly to blame should the negotiations fail, compared to 27 percent who said the same of the Democrats and Obama.

    In the new Post-ABC poll, a slim majority of independent voters disapprove of each of the two principals in the budget negotiations. For Obama, it’s a narrow 42 percent approval to 51 percent disapproval among political independents; Boehner is in slightly worse territory, even as he’s more of an unknown, with 24 percent approving and 53
    percent disapproving.The Post-ABC poll was conducted Dec. 5 to 9 among a random national sample of 1,018 adults, including users of both conventional and mobile
    phones. The margin of sampling error for the full results and the sample
    of 861 registered voters are both 4 percentage points. Click here for full question wording and interactive results.

    McConnell is now the least liked member of the whole US Senate. Even thought Mitt the Twister won Kentucky by 23%, it looks like at this early stage Mitch the Gritch is only marginally ahead of Ashley Judd and a plethora of other challengers. So either way, compromise and make nice with the voters and take your chance with the Tea Baggers and you could lose your nomination to another no can win, or stonewall and curry favor with the lunatic fringe and lose in November. Better to be a hero and do the right thing for country for a change.

    Corporation's misuse of workers caused union's organization of workers. Unions forced the corporations to do right by workers. Once this was achieved the unions only function should've been to keep wages abreast of inflation. But they gouged the corporations for more and more wages/benefits for less and less work till the corporations couldn't produce a profitable product. So they close or move to wherever they can. Unions are now just a cabal of criminals with a force of mental midget profane thugs.

    • Patriot

      Ya, by lawbreaking, thuggery, mob action,stabbings, maiming, et al. Unions were born out of Communism and socialism with a bit of Mafioso thrown in. Ya, there definitely were bad corporations and abuse of workers. But the unions conduct was not justified. Sue those bastards and hit them were it hurts in their pocketbooks. Not by putting sticks of dynamite under their gas tanks. The Unions saw all of business as evil and one big piggy bank. Enough is enough.

    I live in Michigan, gets me,they all know what the unions are doing to Michiganders, they do not care! For years I have watch these union people shop at non union stores, hirer non union electricians and plumbers, and watched as they treated their jobs with contempt. Where are the unions to stand up for the coal miners union? Oh ya Obama said he is closing the business. The union workers throwing a fit, when GM has been bailed out twice from the backs of tax payers that are NOT in a union and does not make that kind of money. When does it stop! We have only 17.5% of union workers here in Michigan and a lot of RETIRED union workers. GM still went to bankruptcy folks and they each got a $7,000 bonus! We have the 6th largest in the US unemployment figures! All I have ever heard all my life by these union workers is crying and wining! Where is that that the average American worker can make 29 an hour with great health plans and pensions with a high school diploma? They live on another planet! They are afraid sparked by the unions! They have been used and they pay the unions to tell them what to say and do. I think we can be better, our companies can be better the union can be better, it ill put all workers in the drivers seat...if they only realized it. My father was in the very first GM sit down strike. however my father was a smart man, when jimmy Hoffa got voted in, he said "there goes our unions"! He did not like the fact that unions became so corrupt and that had become so political expecting unconditional loyalty! One thing union workers forgot..you can price yourself right out of a job, yet they blame the companies that do not want to give up any more profits or make them bankrupt...how smart as this!

    Next time I think we need to come with some fire power and "liquidate" these bastards.

    From what I saw they probably do not know how to do a day's work anyway. And from what I heard the lot of them need to be sent back to grammar school to learn how to talk.

    If this is representative of the "rank and file" of most unions, then the entities should be outlawed as enemies of this country.

    By the way, how much tax so the Union bosses pay on what is collected from the forced labor slaves that have to give a portion of their income to them. Now let me see. 18% goes to social security if you are self employed. In this case the union slaves are employed by another so they only pay 9%, the what are the union dues, maybe another 10%, maybe more for state and federal taxes. Of course many say the union dues are only 1% of the workers income, but I think from what I hear from members it is much more.

    State sales taxes, excise, etc. and all the other taxes, like the ones on your phone bill, and I'll bet half of the income is taxed before you get it. Something you have no control over.

    Does anyone wonder why some folks go on SSI and such and get $800 a month tax free.

    With the unions and social security taking 20% of your income, say you made $300 a week. That would leave you, less 20% with an income of 960. That you need to pay things with. Now if you had SSI at 800 a month and 190 for food stamps, you would get $990 a month, not to count the free health care as opposed to the $960 a month if you went to work.

    I think Unions had a good reason for their beginnings, so did the KKK. But right now they are just a bunch of lazy bums that would rather, it seems, stand on a picket line than to do any honest work. I think they are just the same as the freeloaders getting the SSI and food stamp monies, for doing no work at all.

    Maybe the Union people also do no real work. One businessman told me he hired people for a little less than 2 hours of work a day. He paid for 40 hours of work, but with the coffee breaks, the talking with each other , the smoke breaks and lunch time and such he figured he was lucky if he got a solid hour of work from them in the morning an / or the afternoon.

    This video proves what I have thought all along.

    And I can not trust "union made" to mean quality any more.

    I want to move away from the cities, I will expect them to implode once real "hard times" hit us, as I expect to happen in 6-9 months, if not much, much sooner.

  • John Cherish

    It seems America has forgotten the very things that made this country great and exceptional, Our Constituion is a document which acknowledges the creator from which all human rights exist and it is from him they are given. Our rights are not what are given to us by a government but are from God. When you Take the creator out of Government, when you trash the very constituion which was written by far more educated men than the current crop of liberal educated non-thinkers spouting a Marxist Philosophy that has never worked in what ever form it was tried, Be it Hiler,s Nazi'ism, Mussolini's Facism or Lenin's Communism they have all failed.. It was not until China switched over to Capitalism dis their economy grow. The very Communists we fought aganst in the cold war have infiltrated our government and the Democrat party, which I believe no longer deserves the term "Democrat" in front of party and will call it what it is The new Communist Party. Using Union Thuggary to intmidate anyone that opposes them. These people that control the Unions are NOT for a free and Independent people, They ARE for control, The best Vehicle for that control is Communism. I have seen many Union shops,go bankrupt from the policies of economics they force on the companies. Hostess comes out as an example of out of control unionism. having dealt with the company that makes Little Debbies, and Hostess twinkies, many people do not know that Little debbies have to be deliverd on a seperate truck from Hostess products, yet they were both made at the same plant,and by the same bakers. Does anyone think that this inefficient waste of resources had nothing to do with the companies demise and bankruptcy. This inefficient policy was a result of the unions involvement in the companies operation by their union rules which were imposed by threat of strike if the company did not comply. The eventual result 18,000 lost their jobs because 5,000 on strike would not compromise. I also know for fact what a union has done first hand to a company I once worked for, they closed their operations in Pittsburgh because the union rules made it uneconomical for them to stay in that market. The result Job losses. I must also Add that the union bosses did not loose their jobs they still collect their six and seven digit salaries off the backs of the workers. Who really benifits from the Unions it is not the worker they are not better off,because of the union. Even though the union would like to have them beleive this lie. The only ones who really benefit are the Union executives. Unions don't get their way and they threaten blood, Politicians back them because the union money flows to them if they do. This money comes from the union dues they collect. The ones in control of the unions want to stay in their gravy train and get money off the backs of the workers and will do anything including embracing communism to keep that

  • Devon Sanchez

    Union members are very ignorant to believe that their hard-earned money goes toward furthering their "rights" as workers. Workers are paid what they are worth to the employer/business, no more, no less. The constitutional (natural) rights of the individual have given workers in this country the greatest freedom that can be had in the workplace. Their is no more rights that can be bestowed upon the individual worker without stripping other workers of their rights/salary, and stripping the business and owner of legitimate profits.

  • williaml

    For a party to come out with this it is very sad. I remember years ago when the unionwould burn workers homes and beat them up. Are we getting back to that? The unions have brought big paydays and for some very easy life, but the fat cats of these unions have gained the most. Our people have a right to work. That is all legal people. The only reason I can see that obama and the dems would not be for the workers is the money the unions have put into the dems pockets. shinton needs to do things to bring the people of usa together not split us as is goinz sn today. I don't like what I see down the road.

  • Devon Sanchez

    It is a sad day that states have to write legislation to "free up" the working environment. If state and federal governments hadn't given unions "carte blanche" entitlements, taxation benefits and public monies, we wouldn't be in this mess. The states and feds gave uneven treatment to the working class and now they are trying to fix their faults. Sad and utter failure.

    In other words: Violence is OK as long as it comes from a LEFT hook! But get a right swing in there from any conservative, and the twisted media will spin it to the left and keep spinning. There is NO winner where violence is concerned. Unfortunately, as Martin Luther, Ghandi, and others discovered, a movement of the peaceful masses is more effective for the "cause of the right" but has "casualites."

    We can ONLY win by peaceful means and in the Polls...and if the machines are rigged, UNrig them (nailpolish and screwdrivers? an 'accident'? a DE-rigging program? Paper ballots ONLY!) There is NO WINNING if the machines are already programmed for a "51/49%" win by whoever has programmed the voting machines...and as the programmer himself has already testified - that programming was in place prior to this election! So, forget "Electronic Voting" and give us PAPER BALLOTS and HONEST, CONSERVATIVE ELECTION SUPERVISORS! We MUST START THIS NOW in order to be in place for the next election!

What do you think about the new death tax? Tell me Walter, you work all your life and manage to have something you can leave your kids, but Obama says, now wait, the gubment is entitled to over half of what you've earned and already paid taxes on? You really stand behind that BS? The lazy rich people are the loudmouthed actors on the left coast and the union rank and file, thanks to your president's income distribution. Why do you think those UAW thugs are so up in arms. Their74 dollar an hour job including benefits and I've seen the numbers accidentally release by your side (NBC) before they withdrew it from the site I got it from, is a fair wage to you? Look at the city they runined to get such awage and held fast until they got it, and Detroit looks like a third world country. But that's ok with you Walter? I imagine there is some exemption coming or already signed that will excempt the UAW from the death tax. Otherwise, 55% goes back to the gubment when they die. What crap. Pretty funny that what happened with Government Motors, a managed bankruptcy is just what Romney proposed instead of the bailout. They ended up in the same place but with the bail out, they got to ensure the top thugs got a lot of money in their pockets. Romney didn't kill any more jobs than the Rail Road did when they put canal boats and shipping via steamboat out of business. The Koch brothers have created more jobs than you ever did. This is about the right to work without being strongarmed by thugs who are extorting a part of your paycheck. No different than Mob protection of all the enterprises they have their fingers in. The real threat to this country is ISLAM and all this union bs is a distaction while obama continue to arm the muslim brotherhood. The time for unions has come and gone, especially since the big ones that are left, are thieves and crooks. Tell me Walter, if you were working in a factory where some of he workers went out and drank beer and smoked pot on their lunch break--wouldyou want to work with them, especially if they were operating forklifts or other heavy machinery in your vicinity? If you say yes, you're a fool. If you say no, then tell me how it is ok that the unions were able to protect these people and they still have their jobs? The UAW at it's finest. Look, the unions turned from caring about workers to getting rich starting about 1960. There are all kinds of laws in effect today that make them non-essential except for protecting jobs of people neither you or I would want to work with. You and I both know that is true, unless you were one of the people out drinking and smoking pot on your lunch break, and then I bet you love the unions. Every place I know of they would have been fired, and should be. And they get 74 bucks an hour for that? Wake up Walter.

    They will not be convinced otherwise, even though it is a PROVEN FACT that today, Right-to-work states have higher wages than union states.

    They live in the past, and it will take a long time before they realize "You catch more flies with Honey than you do with Vinegar". The RICH UNION LEADERS are simply sucking blood from their 'forced members'.
