one incident? not hardly squanto. this is typical behavior from union members when teh unions dont get what they want, or when they go on strike but the companies they are striking have to stay in business and thus hire people to cross picket lines to keep the company open. it happens time and time again across the country, year after year. for instance when i was working for my father, a drivers union contract had come due, and since no deal was made on a new contract, the union went on strike. well the bread company needed drivers to get their product out to the supermarkets, so they hired a bunch of drivers. the unions got upset at this and attacked not only the drivers that were hired, but the companies property as well causing thousands in damage, including destroying the companies product. it got so bad at one point that the company hired security guards to accompany the drivers where ever they went.

as to comparing what the unions do to want a country does in a war, pure drivel.

I now it is tough but, try to stay on subject. There are plenty of other posts you can throw your rhetoric at.

One incident?? According to this there have been 9000 since 1975. And the squealers claim the tea party are terrorists.

Here's a list of union violence from 2011..........

The hypocrisy lies on your plate. You use the term "neo-cons" but, ignore the dems voted FOR the war action AND CONTINUALLY fund them. Including the Obama admin.

Just shows your ignorance. This business man is NOT a scab. Your reference to him being one only shows you don't know what a scab is and just like to call people names without knowing the facts of the issue.

Great union tradition. Don't get your way, get violent.
He was a scab, you want me to feel sorry for him?

Couldn't care less what you feel - wholly irrelevant and meaningless.

what part of "he was the OWNER of the business" do you not understand? the business owner has no part of getting unions into the business, the employees do, as they are the ones that vote to, or not to, unionize. and the employees voted NOT to unionize.

the unions are a drag on society at large, and need to go away, permanently.
