    Take a look at these extortionist thugs

    Edenton Tea Party - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The Edenton Tea Party was a political protest in Edenton, North Carolina, in response to the Tea Act, which was passed by the British Parliament in 1773. Inspired by the Boston Tea Party and the calls for tea boycotts and the resolutions of the first North Carolina Provincial Congress, 51 women, led by Penelope Barker, met on October 25, 1774, and signed a statement of protest vowing to give up tea and boycott other British products "until such time that all acts which tend to enslave our Native country shall be repealed."

    Here's some more background info about unions and activities such as collective bargaining passing constitution muster

    National Labor Relations Board v. Jones & Laughlin Steel Corporation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I find it interesting that the SC cited the commerce clause on it though.

    Exactly how am I supporting a double standard? What boycotts did I endorse or support, that would make not supporting this one a double standard. Link to my post where I supprted another boycott.

    So you disagree with church boycotts than and think they are extortion?

    I would not use the word extortion for ANY boycott... it's a mischaracterization. And yes, I disagree with the church botcotts mentioned earlier in this thread. You know, the ones you ASSumed I was ok with and then called me a Christian hater???

Gov Walker had an opportunity to negotiate a cost saving agreement with the teacher's union and he was not going to satisfied until he took away their right to have representation, we all have a right to assemble and work for the common good

    Every one should have had to sacrifice a little to help during these hard economic times, that includes the insurance companies that supply the benefits for these workers

    The sleeping giant at work here was woken last November, and is now going to put an end to all the govt waste and fraud that he can. This is only one example. There will be more.
