Does anybody find this disturbing? Who gives a rip what Trumka thinks. Looks Columbia has their union thugs under control.

"AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka sent a letter to President Obama on Monday expressing his labor federationís opposition to the pending free-trade deal with Colombia."

Why not...according to some the union owns the jobs in the US and it's up to the union to protect union jobs at all costs.

Free trade is a no-no because there's not many countries with a wage as high as the US.

You think killing people who are trying to organize workers into unions is okay?

Do you suppose Obama needs Trumka to tell him it's not?

Thats right, you are talking to a strawman of your own creation.

How do you feel about the topic of Trumpka advising Obama on foreign policy?

Labor organizers are murdered in Columbia. The OP said that Columbia "has their union thugs under control."

Asking someone a question about what they said is a strawman?

These murders are taking place in Columbia, not the USA. Isn't that up to Columbia to deal with? Or, do you have inside knowledge that these union organizers were killed with guns sold by BATFE with the approval of AG holder and Obama via Operation "Castaway"?
