    Not when it involves the police and fire departments. I wonder if the boycott will mean the police officers will no longer get free meals at the restaurants who did not sign up to publicly support the thugs? And how about predicting headlines. "Businesses that support the thugs had zero fire hazard violations. The average for businesses that did not support the thugs was 32,476 violations."

    ould you call the police to investigate the broken windows on your business?

    Unions are about extortion. They're about getting their demands met through violence or threats of violence. They have no interet in fairness, no interest in service to the consumer or the taxpayer, and no interest in safety beyond their own personal safety.

    Yes. I also think it's a fundamental right to support whichever political agenda I choose, free from harrassment by organized public employee unions.

    It is everyone's fundamental right as it is their right not not buy from you (assuming you are a business owner) if they don't like you or for any arbitrary reason they see fit, even silly stuff like not liking the color of your shoes. Political differences are no more or less meaningful in that respect.

    This whole notion of being harrassed, because you did not receive a purchase, is silly for that reason.

    Those people who are freaking out about this are reading way more into it then is there. Its simply an economic decision and nothing more.

    No.

    When the head of a union of the POLICE threaten a citizen to compel action, the very real possiblity exists that the police may not show up when called, and the equally real possibility exists that some police officers may take their loyalty to their union to extremes and take overt action secure in the knowledge that the police hestitates to investigate and prosecute their own.

    Same with firemen.

    The unspoken threat exists to be seen for anyone familiar with the history of unions and their violent actions.

    Personally, I think the unions are shooting themselves in the foot with this stupidity.
    I think the local businesses should respond by denying services to members of the police and fireman's unions. That's harder to do, and not feasible in the long term, but perhaps the union members need to start being reminded of who they are, where they belong in society, and what kind of creeps they're electing to their union leadership.

    Or, perhaps, a "union surcharge" on services and goods to cover the additional costs those public employee unions have imposed on businesses and taxpayers in general?

    Maybe you should stop posting until you've learned history?
