I was just reading about this. Apparently this poor small businessman has been the victim of reported union thuggery for years.

Many Obama supporters are born again neo-cons, yet they support unions.

Yeah, it was just yesterday that Pinkerton's were used to suppress unionization, while the railroad magnate twisted his handlebar mustache. This is not a 2 way street, at least not in the last 100 years.

Great union tradition. Don't get your way, get violent.
He was only doing the job a union member wouldn't do...

Why aren't the same lefties that bow to criminal aliens all over supporting the victim in this case?

There are violent people within all groups on this planet. Violence within a group shouldn't be the deciding factor in whether or not the foundation of the group should be demolished. It certainly shouldn't be tolerated anywhere in any way, shape, or form.

(and Americans have never said, "Agree with us, or else???")

Time to separate the apples from the oranges, argument wise.

It's not just "one incident".

Public unions, and the liberals who still, for some odd reason, support them, just can't seem to realize they aren't needed any more.

Living in the past, to keep those who can't, or don't want to, from dealing with the fact that if they didn't join or have a public union contract, they wouldn't be able to make it on their own without the union "protection" and tax dollars funding their jobs.

That's pathetic.

Of course it shouldn't. But liberals and public union members don't want to get rid of public unions because it's just one more form of welfare, that comes with a lot of protection and funded by your happy tax payer.

Public unions are no longer, and haven't been for decades, necessary, to "protect" union members. The entire premise behind the start of public unions was ...what?

Does it apply in 2011 and how so?

Collectively? No.

Keep in mind, not all Americans are union members. What's your point?

What are you referring to that has to do with public unions?

Especially in THIS economy.
