GAT_00: Funny, none of that is in the link. Nothing about hitting a reporter, and I saw the video of the tent earlier. Didn't look like anyone was in it.But hey, protesting is bad, but passing a bill in a locked session in the middle of the night without telling anyone is good. That's real democracy - Republican democracy.
video man: Good. It's about time we start using old school tactics.
homelessdude: video man: Good. It's about time we start using old school tactics.I was just about to say the same thing. Enough is enough.
jso2897: mwfark: Here's a truth for the union hacks: Right to Work laws give workers a choice between whether or not one joins a union. Many times the absence of such laws means workers are forced into unions and required to pay dues against their will, eliminating their choice. Since choice = freedom, then Right to Work laws are more American than forced coercion. No wonder why unions get the "commie" label......Gotta love these people who call theselves "conservatives" these days - they claim to oppose government meddling in the private sector - until it's a matter of having the governemnt arbitrarily abrogate a contract between two private parties to obtain a result they deem desirable.So much for "moral consistency" on the part of "conservatives".
Void_Beavis: Joe Blowme: Between 1977-08, employment grew 100% in right-to-work states vs. the national average of 71% and 56.5% in non-right-to-work states. That's according to a January study that Ohio University economics professor Richard Vedder did for the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.In this period, real per capita income in the right-to-work states grew 62.3% vs. the national average of 54.7% and 52.8% for non-right-to-work states.the bottom 14 states for personal income growth (between 1999 and 2009) are all non-right-to- work statesLinkIncome growth is not the same as income level. If I make $0, then I make $.01, that's a growth of 100%.Working at Walmart is hardly a "liveable" income. However when we gut social services and extend benifits to corporations that ship jobs elsewhere, people have little choice but to work at Walmart.
HakunaMatata: People should punch Fox news reporters every single chance they get.
Joe Blowme: s1ugg0: ****NEWSFLASH****People get upset when you attack their livelihood and how they provide for their families. More at 11!By giving them more choices? How is that? All dues are is kick back for having a job, like a protection racket or something. Like a job tax, how quaint.
LordJiro: david_gaithersburg: LordJiro: david_gaithersburg: Freedom and democracy, the two things so called progressives fear the most.People who actually work for a living: One of many things Republicans can't stand...blah, blah, blah The Republicans are the one's passing laws allowing people to work, the unions are fighting to prevent people from working at workplaces that have a union unles they pay shake down money. I have many friends with small companies that have been kicked off of jobs because their 3-4 man company wasn't paying dues to union lawyers.Fark you buddy.FTFY. You're free to work a non-union job. But if your workplace has a union and you aren't a part of it, you're a parasite. Unless, of course, you sign a waiver preventing yourself from receiving the wages and benefits a union negotiates for.
Elandriel: We are seeing the beginning of the modern day labor rights movement, I think.
HotWingConspiracy: Thunderpipes: HotWingConspiracy: Thunderpipes: Oh, 40% of MI union members polled said they would leave the union if they could?They can at any time. Also, cite a source for that.ya, they can leave, but they still have to pay dues,.No, they can quit whenever they like.once again, morons, would you be for unions if they forced employees to fund Republicans?Nobody is forced to fund Democrats. You don't get to torture the word "forced" to make your hack point.CA alone is over 300 billion underfunded in their pension plans, because of unions. Nationwide that number dwarfs the deficit. How is that working for you? You want free stuff,Free? They negotiated a contract and performed their end of the bargain. Again, your jealousy shines through.
Joe Blowme: I'm confused. I thought being pro choice was good
Sm3agol85: BillCo: So, if some southern town said you had to join the KKK in order to work for the city, that would be OK, right?There's really no difference. Well, except that unions are more prone to violence than the KKK.This is what, the 10th time someone has come up with this retarded bs in the same thread???? THIS IS NOT HOW UNIONS WORK YOU DUMB SHIAT. Not now, not ever. You don't want to join a union? Don't get a job at a union company you ignorant dolt. Noone is forcing you to get a job at a union company. Oh, yeah, that's right, the union companies have better wages and benefits for some reason, and you want to leech off of that without having a part in negotiating. Fark off.
CujoQuarrel: "Right to Work" doesn't mean that. Jebus. LOOK IT UPIn a "Right to Work" state you may not be forced to join a union or forced to pay dues to a union in order to get a job. It has absolutely nothing to do with 'firing at anytime'
Weaver95: Relatively Obscure:Like I said, that dude was a Grade A douchebag.so is Fox News...
BSABSVR: this thread already has the neighborhood fat kids and overnight IT guys acting pretend tough.
GAT_00: Relatively Obscure: log_jammin: Crowder said "Dana, they literally would have killed me where I stood if I'd of fought back and defended myself after the sucker punch. They literally would have torn me limb-from-limb."I'd love for someone to point to where in the video that he valiantly fought back to save his life.DNRTFA or whatever, but I think your quote is him specifically saying he did NOT fight back valiantly and WHY he may appear to be a huge wimpoid to Red Blooded America./Shouldn't really attack this guy. It's at best akin to attacking WBC clowns.I can't really blame someone for attacking their enemy.

trivial use of my dark powers: OK, union guys, stop hitting people unless they hit you first.
