Dozen arrested at Thanksgiving
SEIU Los Angeles airport protest

Daily Caller [Washington DC], by Christopher Bedford

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/21/2012 10:17:17 PM

Members of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) protested at entrances to the Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday — the biggest travel day of the year — delaying people trying to spend time with their families and leading to a dozen arrests. Union members blocked a busy intersection after their permit had expired, The Los Angeles Times reported, leading to their arrests. “At least two of those arrested are City Council candidates,” the Times added in a separate report, listing Ana Grande and Ana Cubas of the 13th and 9th districts, respectively. The union is protesting

The whole group should have been arrested and the SEIU should be fined by the city of Los Angeles...big time. They caused major traffic jams, interfered with both the work day and travel plans of folks. And over what? The fact that a group of workers at a company had decided that they had had enough of the union and had decertified. Seems they get a better deal from management than from the darn union. I love in LA county and I am really mad over this. The resulting traffic jams interfered with my work. No excuse for that.

Guy told me a story about 1997, Raleigh, NC:

Someone was trying to extort money from him in a parking lot. Wouldn´t let him move his vehicle until he paid the extortionist $80.

Guy stuck his head out the window and informed the bad guy that he would only tell him once to move or he´d hit him.

The bad guy didn´t move, he floored his vehicle, knocking the extortionist to the concrete.

Wild eyed and screaming on the ground, the extortionist was told to roll out or he´d be run over.

He rolled because he now believed.

Once the price for extortion is too high, the criminals rethink their position in society - even if it´s from the concrete.

I cheer them on! California is the petri dish of liberalis. The most resources, tourism, ports, and movie insustrry of any state and they are bankrupt.

Good job Democrats! (Applause) Maybe we can get a reality show about Democrats spiraling down into demise!

I was listening to kirsten powers on fox last night. She stated that as long as the unions had their rights to congregate and protest, any shoppers or workers of walmart, in this case, could just suffer those consequences. In essence, for a liberal, unions have rights, the rest of us can just suffer in silence. I started to have hope for her brain shortly before the election, but she is a true brain dead liberal.

How about delaying their bench appearance until Monday, and letting them sit in lockup without bail for the long Thanksgiving weekend?
Inconvenience them and their families, just as they did thousands of travelers.
We all know the charges will be dropped anyhow. Might as well ruin their holiday plans.

Kirsten Powers is an idiot. Liberals truly believe that stomping on the rights of others, to the point of injury or even death, if it furthers their cause it is ok by them. Collateral damage.

Things will get more interesting for unions, and the rest of us, if the economy does not improve.

Pay will be reduced, or collapse, due to competition from non union businesses. Tax revenues are falling, for government unions.

Pension payments will have be reduced, due to poor returns on investments. Union trust funds pay defined benefits to members. They invest funds to do this. Investments planned to get a 5% return, are getting half that amount or less.

In the Carter Years, women had to get jobs. In the Obama Years, retirees will have get jobs.

Reports are flying across the Internet about the possibility that Apple’s satellite map app just snapped a pic of the elusive “Loch Ness monster.” Long speculated to be a relative of the dinosaur-era plesiosaur, many have chalked the rumors up to baseless monster talk. Until now. (Photograph) Could this satellite imagery hold a clue that scientists on the hunt have been missing? Could the Loch Ness monster be real?

Bunkersville, Nevada — Cliven Bundy’s ranch, recently the site of a tense stand-off that started over two weeks ago between the federal government and the Bundy family, had morphed into a good old-fashioned family picnic complete with live country music, hamburgers, and hotdogs Friday. A week after the Bureau of Land Management’s armed force left Bunkersville, Bundy and his supporters continue to make the family’s case relating to Bundy’s right to graze his cattle on public land his family has been on for many years. Bundy told Breitbart News the only communication he has received from the BLM recently has been

The president´s speeches may need to be accompanied by a laugh track from now on, considering the crickets he received at his appearance in Community College of Allegheny County, in Oakdale, Pa., on Wednesday. Although he tried to tout his new spending program, both Obama´s talking points and attempts at humor didn´t go over so well: At the end, when the president walked back from the podium to smile and wave at the roughly 60 people in the bleachers 20 feet behind him, he faced a unfriendly wall of faces. The White House video of the bleacher’s front rank shows three men with their hands crossed, one with his hands stuck

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

Two Democratic Party candidates in the primary race for California´s 33rd congressional district in West Los Angeles have accused local party officials of using an arbitrary fundraising minimum to favor established insiders--then raising that minimum at the last moment to exclude them from a recent candidates´ forum. Democrats Kristie Holmes and Barbara Mulvaney issued a joint press release earlier this week, accusing the Pacific Palisades Democratic Club (PPDC) of "uninviting" them from a forum on Sunday, April 13 "after first zealously pursuing them." Only candidates who participated were eligible for the club´s

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.
