    Since when do "fat union thugs" have the right to say what goes on at a public meeting?

    If the protesters were disturbing the peace, call the cops and let them handle it. That's their job. Fat union thugs get to stand on the side and be peaceful just like the protesters.

    They are not the same thing.
    I would love to see you back this up. I work in insurance, so I think the service aspect of it is much greater than you give some companies credit for, it's not as simple as demonizing profit.

    See, if I was that guy, I would have choked one of those union thugs out, then sued the union for everything it had....

    I'd probably find the nearest two-by-four and do some on-site knee re-adjustment, but that's just me.

    Union thugs assaulted him at one of the town hall meetings because he was speaking against the health care bill.

    I hate Unions.
    They are the lowest of the low.

    Yeah, but if you choke the guy out then someone has to hoist his sweaty carcass out the door.

    Joint locks are far more entertaining, and less inconveniencing to the janitorial staff.

    If you work in insurance, then it should be even more clear to you.

    How do insurance companies make money? How do they decrease costs and maximize profits?

    In the Auto Insurance World, they do so by attempting to attract driver's with unblemished records and cancelling policies on those who are determined to be liabilities.

    The same is true of Health insurance companies. If health insurance companies authorize every procedure that a Doctor recommends a patient have, that is going to increase their costs and thus decrease the amount of profit that they bring in for their CEO's and shareholders.

    It is this incentive to ration healthcare, deny recommended procedures, deny insurance to those with pre-existing conditions, and seek to deny claims that cut costs and increase profits.

    Do you seriously not see the inherent flaw/contradiction in such an archaic and asinine system?

    Now that's not very nuanced thinking.

    Grab thug thumb, twist thug thumb, smile as thug howls in pain and ask for his thumb back.

    Or grab thug wrist, apply pressure across the carpal joint, watch thug drop to the ground like a sack of russet potatoes.
