    my feelings exactly, yet on a similar thread, several far lefties and justifying union thuggery and warning us that if we don't give into union demands they will revolt

    I really want them to, I really do.

    This is the part I just can't understand and have asked several times. How is it that this 'revolt' will promote the Union's popularity? I mean in the private sector they represent a single digit percentage of the workforce. Such revolt, if violent, could be distorted by the media as terrorism which the public has, since 2001, been conditioned to repulse sternly. Are they trying to kill themselves?

    Every Republican in the Michigan should arm themselves.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Well we could certainly hasten their demise if they get violent. America could only be better if the SEIU thugs were no longer

    Thanks for admitting that you're for violence -- as long as it is directed at working people.

    I think that pretty much sums up the tea party and its rightwing thugs.

    It will be nice to see the union racketeers losing their grip.

    But honestly...what's wrong with having a right NOT to join a union? If the hive mentality wants to keep their union, I don't see where this law takes that away from them. So basically, the racketeers would rather enslave those who don't want to be part of a union, than allow for the freedom of choice.

    A good shoot-out would be healthy and cleansing and we'll finally find out who is in charge around here. This will create jobs as the death toll mounts, bullet holed walls will need patching etc., the dead will have to be replaced, the wounded cared for and this can surely lead us to economic resurgence PLUS it doesn't matter who wins, just that somebody does.
