Guess what union thugs and Moe they now have installed facial recognition cameras all over the city, You wanted big brother now you have it in Obama and his new security to zoom in on you daily and also film you doing anything at any given time . can you say 1984 . So when you plan those covert riots and chaos Moe and you're union thug drones, Just remember you can't remain incognito says Obama's new spruced up high tech watch your every step security all in the guise for you're safety. Is this the same Homeland security Bush got blasted for, Yet Obama has ramped it up even more on our own soil.Must hurt LiBERALS TO know Obama lied when he blasted Bush on homeland security tactics, Now Obama just signed into law the Govt to invade your homes without even a search warrant , The TSA now can even act like the Fbi and Cia.Locally the same thing occurred , The local supreme court ruled . It's okay for police to kick down our doors with a search warrant and no Miranda rights read.Obama says terrorist should be read Miranda rights, yet not the avg citizen.You wanted change you hoped for change, How's it feel now suckers lol.Try and get out of that traffic ticket with facial recognition camera's .

Occupy can disrupt ports, business, burn the American Flag, harass police and have the Democrat Party officials allow laws to be broken.
I wonder how they will stand up against thousands of beer drinking nacho eating football fans if they stand in the way of their getting to their seats to watch the kickoff? I mean, in America, there are degrees of importance …..


This could spell disaster.. We all know how rabid football fans can be. They won’t take kindly to people disrupting their Super Bowl activities like tailgating and the game itself. They spent good money for their tickets, lodging and transportation and they won’t stand for a bunch of smelly punks trying to ruin their day.

Ya can’t fix stupid… but a rabid football fan will certainly try.

You are describing the 99%. They won't be there. It will be the one percent at the game. Those with all the money.

I find it fascinating that the people on this thread calling people thugs and belittling and spewing hateful things out toward others, don't take a moment to see they are behaving in a way they accuse others of being.

Do you really think because someone supports a union that makes them a poor person, a freeloader, a useless slug in society? WOW.

By that stereotype, you all must be rich elitist ignorant bigoted capitalists out to destroy the fabric of the working class.

Not that I think that, but extremism is what I read being preached here. SAD.

All of what you write is true. What brings the chuckles is that all of these egotistical right to workers union haters have never been involved with unions at all! They only repeat horror stories from a friends sixth cousin who used too.....

Adding to the humor is that they actually believe that they can negotiate (and deserve) a salary as well as a professional. There is a reason why right to work states pay less......the boss is at one side of the desk sayin' "you got three minutes to explain why you need and deserve a raise before security arrives-----otherwise go back to work".

Go ahead you redneck thugs, play your game. The $34 dollars an hour for welding 1 root pass on a pipe connection per day is going away. The guy sitting on a forktruck ALL DAY in the pipe yard at Marathon, waiting on someone to call for something is gonna have to go to work. The price of American made goods will go down in the long run. As well, the overall cost of living. Yes wages across the board will fall but they will fall to a reasonable level, we have all lived far too well for far too long. All great societies fall, Rome, Greece,Germany,Japan(soon), Mesopotamia,Russia and the one thing in common that they all had was at a minimum a Socialist mindset that the Union propagates. Perhaps after this long overdue readjustment something will be left for our great-grandchildren.

Well, I belonged to a union about 15 years ago, and for the $20 a month I had to pay to belong to it, as a single parent I sure could have used that $20 in my pocket to buy groceries for my two children instead. As it is, that $20/mo got paid to a union rep who did nothing for me. I never needed a union to do my job. I've managed just fine without one since. As far as raises go, I get one every year in June based on PERFORMANCE. That means I have to do a good enough job to get one. I don't have an issue with that; I've gotten one every year. So what do we need unions for again?

Well you spin a good yarn as to the "never been involved with unions" & "repeat horror stories".
When someone such as me came to you with years of personal experience with three different unions, you just blew me off as a 'hater'. Now you accuse all us RTWs as "never been involved with unions".
You can't have it both ways, ya know.
Your version of "how to get a raise" is equally humorous. You must be way down on the food chain to come up with that 'raise scenario'. Shame you had to go thru that. Maybe enhance your skills to where you are treated with respect, resulting in an increase in your wage. Instead of watching the clock and expect a boss to hand you a raise.
Pity the fools......

You want us and our 12 yo children to work for slave wages 20 hrs per day, seven days per week.

We won't have time to worry about government. We will be slaves.

Yes, wages will fall-----to a reasonable level?-----only time will tell! Why instead don't we try this.....most corporations have several employees that make over a million dollars a year-----why not cut one of those (the corporate golf represenative?) and instead of paying him a million dollars create twenty five jobs that pay forty thousand a year-----even if they do nothing but play cards all day it would improve the countries economy! Better yet the corporations could loan them to local state, county, cities for various uses and pay back for all of the perks that they have been awarded in the last years! Daniels has given the State away to business-----his payoff comes later?

What you fail to comprehend is not everyone is created equal. The humor comes into play when all of the RTW's think they are masters of the universe (they are the real fools)! That is really funny! Some can, some can't! I think that I can out dunk Lebron James if given a trampoline start but ain't gonna bet any money on it! Most of em' are overestimated their own abilities-----whadduya think? Honest appraisal.....not just what ya think some want to read! Uh yeah my skills need improving! LOL
