Uh, excuse me? Historically, the "thugs" who showed up during American labor unrest worked for the company, not the union. But that's empirical: I suspect you would never let knowable fact interfere with your opinion. For instance, Virginia is a right to work state. Look it up.
What unrest What company? my comment was in regard to a "so called" town hall jammed full of out of towners to block the presence of locals whom it was supposed to benefit "purple shirts" sorry you misunderstood

You may do your own research if you like but you will find my statement to be accurate.
Individuals who do not meet their moral obligations are also more fiscally sound. Just look at the Robber Barons of old.

Mr. Kaine,

Surely you have done enough to mess up Virginia without trying to spend us into total bankruptcy. The Democrats are simply becoming another union with the way they do business. Hate to break it to you, but we don't need you. Get a real job, man. Or just move away.

Check out any viral video from the Health Care Reform town hall meetings where union members were attacking others for exercising their right to free speech. Here is a website if you need help finding evidence.

It's very obvious that the "thugs" and who they are, were attacking free speech, but I'm sure the "liberal dems" will continue to live in denial...this is what they do best!

Coincidentally, the states you list are net losers in regard to federal taxation. That is, they pay more in federal taxes than they receive in federal grants and benefits.

And oddly, the states where the TeaParty people scream the loudest about taxes are the ones which are net recipients of federal money, have the lowest percentage of union membership, and the fewest "social entitlements." Oh, and the lowest educational levels and standard of living. Weird.

If what you have written is true, and I have my doubts, maybe you should be listening to those Tea Party people who are "screaming the loudest." You might just learn something.

If they are prepared to give up federal money and social entitlements, what does that say about their honesty and sincerity?
