Some tweets about this:
Hey @IBEW, Obama just said you should be fired for striking. https://twitter.com/nbcwashington/status/385782823384547328 … Can we get your comment on this?

IBEW response:

“the right to strike is protected activity under the NLRA”
and
“When we do strike, we usually know what we are striking over. You might want clarify THAT”

It just shows all along that Democrat trotskyists will not tolerate strikes agains them, just like jaruzelski vs. Solidarnosk.

FDR did the same.

The crowd responded, “you’d get fired” and he repeated out to them.....

So, his labor department is good with companies firing strikers, right?

“When we do strike, we usually know what we are striking over. You might want clarify THAT”

I worked in a factory back in the 70’s that had wildcat strikes all the time for no reason except to get a few days off.

3-4 days later we would go back to work and claim it was over unsettled grievances.

Company of 3000 workers was driven out of business with silly crap like that.

However, the Pinkertons I could imagine shooting and killing the workers, just in days of yore. ....Ahhhh, yes the good ol’ days. My great something or other grandpappy was a Pinkerton in Scranton, before he was a Marshall in Oklahoma. Apparently, he was one Hell of a Sumbitch.

Imagine if you were a worker who went around demonizing other workers, putting words in their mouths and calling them terrorists and thugs because they disagreed with you while doing their jobs according to the rules of the organization. You would get fired, Right OJackazz?

Imagine if factory workers had the civil service and Constitutional protections of government “workers” ? Not to mention the tenure and unlikelihood they get fired for cause or laid off for “Budget cuts” (which never happen)

Those poor little mistreated govt “workers”

If the owners want to shut it down, they can — and we the people own the government, not the other way round.

Psst, it’s not a strike when the employees want to work, but the government locks them out.

A minority of Democrats are trying to blacklist hard working employees, then demonize them as they further advance their cronys.

The people are tired of paying for more inefficient government controlled by the cronys. The Republicans and Tea Party-ers are the only ones who get it right and have done what they can to keep the small guy from going broke.

Anybody who doesn’t like it, gets demonized and blacklisted.

Next he will imagine what if one party decided to leave the state or country to avoid voting on legislation?

It is almost as bad as imagining Nobel peace prize winners and anti war Vietnam vets trying to start a war with Syria.

The terrorist Richard Trumka had his camo uniformed terrorist United Mine Workers shut down mines and coal prep factories.

It went on for months and the destruction of both company and private property was large. The UMWA tactics measured by current law were terrorist in nature

Workers did exactly that to a Firestone plant in my hometown back in the early 70’s.

The plant shut down and the jobs went away and never came back.

Now, more than 40 years later, it’s still the fault of the b@st@rd managers at Firestone according to those same workers.

I like this comment on the video page:

OMG Look at the wheels trying to turn in that head, but there are no wheels there. So he starts to go ghetto then realizes that won't work and all of a sudden.... it's gone. All intellectual synapses short circuit. This is actually frightening.

At this point it is highly unlikely any amount of money will help. We need leaders with both intestinal and testicular fortitude. Too many eunuchs and spineless, directionless wimps. How often do we find ourselves having to rally behind women who have more fire in their bellies than supposed lions of these “august bodies”?

Don’t get me wrong, I have absolutely nothing wrong with most of the female leadership on our side (there are always exceptions), but when someone as unhinged as nanzi peelousy can cow our house speaker, well you know the rest...
