    Right, love visiting NYC and spent a lot of time there. Sounds like a place right up your alley since all you ever do is complain about TX. Best move I ever made moving to TX in 1992. Too bad you always look at the grass on the other side of the fence as being greener.

The idea that he is the right wing cliche of what they like to call a "union thug" is downright hilarious.

    His tweet yesterday referred to other comments he made how the Republicans were intentionally creating a poisonous atmosphere in work places which could well result in arguments, fights and spilt blood. It was NOT a rallying cry for violence or any of the other over the top nonsense that he has been accused of. His office is on the same floor as ours is and I have been in many a meeting with him.
    He made the statement publicly. He owns it.

    There is video which clearly shows union thugs engaging in violence and mob behavior

    This is just the first round of a battle that's going to divide this state. We're going to have a civil war
    Why do you support violent thugs? Have you no shame?

    A black hotdog cart owner named Clint Tarver was taunted by radical marxist/socialist/collectivist union thugs with racial slurs after they destroyed his cart

    "N*gger Uncle Tom"

    Beyond the Cart: The Story of Clint Tarver - YouTube

    Apparently he was hired by the AFP to serve food. He was a Romney Supporter, therefore it's perfectly fine to call him racial slurs and destroy his business

    Romney’s Saturday started off well. He was the star of the Ingham County Lincoln Day breakfast, an eggs-and-coffee-and-county-commissioner-placards affair in the dining room of a Lansing, Mich., country club.

    Before he spoke, Republicans heard “The Star-Spangled Banner” sung by the Old School Fellas, a zoot-suited amateur doo-wop group. “Mitt’s a good, Christian man like I am,” explained Clinton Tarver, wearing the reddest of the zoot suits.
    In Michigan, Mitt Romney is trying to appeal to as many Republicans as possible. - Slate Magazine

    Good vid. I talk about this at work all the time. I simply can't believe the crap that I now have to go through, as a parent. All the things kids can't do these days. It's unreal to me, and I frankly, now, completely understand why kids watch TV or play video games all day...because their not allowed to do anything else.

    His statement - Rep Doug Geiss - was no big deal when you understand what he was saying. I already explained that to you very clearly.

    Why should someone be forced to consider an entirely different line of work because they don't want to join an organization? Why can't an ironworker just be an ironworker?

    You should try reading the articles sometimes.
    Hell of a lot easier to live on 11.20 per hour almost ANYWHERE in the south, Texas included, than it is to live on even 15 bucks an hour in CT.


    Just saying.

    Not sure how many places still allow it but you used to not have to join the Union, just so long as you paid Union dues. That was very illustrative of what the game is all about for the unions.

    Unions are a for profit business. Look at the lifestyles of some of the top union heads, for many of the larger ones in this country, and this would be clear to even a union supporter.
