    Detroit fell to shambles when people were allowed to move to countries with 2dollar/hr workers
    That would be ignoring all those auto makers who moved to the United States, but not to Michigan. These include Honda, Mercedes Benz, Toyota, Nissan, and several others.

    I think we might even see a move where Boeing is forced to move out of the United States, thanks to the Unions.

    2010 outright flaunting of weapons happened a lot. I'd rather have people using words than showing up with weapons.

    Maybe that because Detroit has been crap since the 80s and nothing to do with the Unions?

    I dont equate all dems to this. I also dont think all Tea Partiers are pristine. I personally believe there are as many racist bigoted blacks as there are whites as there are liberals as there are conservatives...etc etc etc. But if we are going to toss out videos...well...every group has their (black, white, green, or whatever politically correct term works) sheep in the fold, right?

    You're the only one painting with a broad brush, here. And, uhh, is she supposed to be a liberal?

    C-man said he hadn't heard a single racist word from the tea party. Now he has.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    Does this mean we are on speaking terms again?

    I already responded...balance baby...it was stupid for anyone to say the Tea Party has no racists because the 'Tea Party'...like EVERY party...is made up of PEOPLE. Racists...douchebags...every group has them.

    The secret is no longer a secret. It is well known and for the radical right warriors to pretend to play ostrich is just silly at this point
    another failure of comprehension. Unions and the scumbags who run them constantly claim that working people mean union members which is a joke. Many union members work far less than those who are not members of unions. I suggest your average medical resident, wall street law firm associate, P&G assistant brand manager etc is far more WORKING PEOPLE than some AFSCME Slug or NEA member.

    sure, plenty of union members are working people. Firemen, cops, OTR drivers, IBEW, carpenters, and the traditional trade unions. But to pretend that the ONLY working people or MOST working people are union members or that the Union scumbag leaders like that ass Hoffa speak for MOST working people is a joke

    that has to be one of the funniest rants I have seen. Corporate greed is why this country has such a high standard of living.

    Unions are parasites. They suck the blood out of the investment and hard work of others. Unions in and of themselves produce nothing and have done more than their fair share of killing off the US job market.

    While I don't see Hoff's words in the same category as Sarah Palin's bulls-eyes on liberal congressional districts or what have you, I do understand that his words could easily be viewed as inflammatory. Still...

    Content and context means everything, folks. The media has a responsibility to report the news accurately. Purposeful editing to inflame or stir up anxiety to me is irresponsible journalism and discredits the media source. This isn't the first time FoxNews has discreditted itself in this manner. Regardless, James Hoffa, Jr could have choosen his words alittle more carefully. That said, I don't think the President nor the DNC has a responsibility to publically reprimand their guess speaker. Not only did he not say or do anything wrong, he's not a member of Congress nor the Obama Administration. He's a citizen and free to exercise his 1st Amendment rights as long his words don't incite one to violence. To that, I think when people read or hear the exact contents of his words they'll put them in their proper context.
    And, therein lies the problem with the Lefties.

    ... I'm sure this has already been brought up... but isn't Jimmy Hoffa buried somewhere under Yankee Stadium?
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
