Hoffa predicts ´civil war´ in Michigan
CNN, by Ashley Killough

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 12/12/2012 1:39:09 AM

Jimmy Hoffa, president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, said Tuesday he expects Michigan unions and lawmakers to break out into "civil war" after the state legislature passed right-to-work bills that would weaken unions´ power. "This is just the first round of a battle that´s going to divide this state. We´re going to have a civil war," Hoffa said on CNN´s "Newsroom." The Republican-controlled state House passed two bills that had already been approved by the GOP-dominated state Senate. Gov. Rick Snyder, also a Republican, is poised to sign the bill, which would allow workers

A public service message from your friendly neighborhood local union thug. /s Bite me, Hoffa.

The Dems, and Libs want people to do what they tell you to do. Do as they say not as they do. They want people to have rights, Their Rights, no Our Rights. Why should people not have a choice of whether to be in a union or not. They earn their money. Unions take it and use it to Destroy our Country!! They are mad because they are losing the money that goes to the Programs our president wants to supply
Way to Go Michigan!! Oh by the way the Dems don´t like when Republicans use the passing of bills by the politicans of their states. Only they can when they pass gay marriage through the states government like they did in NYS

The Right to Choose only applies to killing babies I guess. If they start rioting... since no one lost their jobs or incurred any personal loss, that would qualify as unfair labor practices... and violates their own stupid laws.

Since the MSM has a blackout on the 2 dock strikes in LA & San Diego.. striking for eliminated sec´y jobs to still be paid to unions... Is that still holding up xmas presents?

They know they have a comrade in arms in the White House. They´re feeling like "it´s time". So almost like it´s been planned and rehearsed, they´re surging, trying to provoke a violent reaction. This time they may be purposely looking for an incident that invites such a response that it would provide justification for a "Red October" type of uprising. Then the comrade´s edicts to supposedly protect the public...martial law, confiscation of firearms, etc.

It certainly has the look and feel of something bigger and more "final" than your typical union thug protest. Be vigilant. Be prepared.

Yes Obe elections do have consequences. One occurs when states can no longer trust or work with feds and baby dictators they resort to state solutions.
Now we have a nation almost evenly divided
right to work free vs right to bow to unions.
incoming makes 30 states not progressive controlled and Obe loses his fake mandate.

I saw some video of Hoffa´s union thugs today, as they beat Steven Crowder´s teeth out of his head.

These are the same jackasses who spent the past two days loudly rehearsing the lines, "We´re not the violent ones."

Scum.

Absolute scum.

What I wish on these scum (and their entire families) isn´t printable in any family-friendly forum.

I kind of hope the unions follow through on these threats, and the businesses in MI take a powder to a southern state leaving behind the union´s scum. If nothing else, I hope they strike far and wide and throw us into a recession so Obama´s second term will be one long nightmare for everyone, not just us conservatives.

Tony Camargo has been identified as being one of the union scum to attack Steven Crowder without provocation.

Tony Camargo needs to be charged, jailed and sued in civil court for every dime he has.

That, or Tony Camargo needs to have a busload of right-minded people show up at his home at 20 a.m., and show this fat union coward what´s up.

I don´t know how much difference this will make in Mich. from a practical standpoint.This is a very union addicted state and I´m sure this is causing ripples throughout the community.Union leadership doesn´t understand how much people have turned against them,especially when everybody else is struggling and they deamnd more.Unions can feel their power fading away so they´ll make one hell of a stink about this. It´s too bad republican interests never get this fired up when it goes against us.How many people threw an actual fit over Robert´s Obamacare decision?

But I can see where a new hire will be read the riot act in a parking of at a unionized factory.They´ll find ways to intimidate people into joining the union regardless of what the law says. Afterall,they are union thugs.

Unions aren´t only bad because they donate to dems but their pay and benefit scale is way out of line. On top of that,they do things like slow productivity to protect overtime.

What a fall the union movement has taken. Just a few years ago Obama had promised them Card Check and doing away with the secret ballot in union elections. Now in the great Union State of MI, Republicans show they have some guts and role them back. Lets not forget the bravery of Wisconsin´s Republicans last year. Now if we could see some similar courage from Mr. Boehner in D.C.

Headline tells you all you need to know about unions and the people who support them. If unions are such a great deal, they would not feel threatened by this new law. The only way unions can succeed is by a declaration that everyone must be in one. Choice just kills them.

Hoffa´s union has been closely watched/audited, by order of the congress, for years due to criminal activity. When the present potus and his minions in the congress took control (2007 for congress, 2008 for the leader)they removed the watch/audit process and let the union return to what it does best....criminal activity and funding the dem party.

This is what it looks like when a state has been paying protection money to the mob and decides to stop. Just a bunch of thugs out for themselves and the heck with their neighbors who are out of work....let them eat cake.
These unions have bankrupted the state legislatures and could care less, because they have their man in the white house who can start up the presses and print bail out money.

Only 18% of all Michigan employees belong to a union. This includes both public and private sector unions. I grew up in Michigan in the heart of UAW country, and I was surprised the number was so small. However, the influence of unions on the psyche of many is huge. Even though much of the state runs moderate to conservative politically (which is reflected in our republican governor and republican-controlled state house & senate), the southeast region, which includes Detroit, Ann Arbor, & Flint, has for decades supported primarily the democrat party and has been strongly pro-union, despite the fact that the majority of people here aren´t union members. I am a visiting RN, and I try to keep a "neutral" position when patients bring up political topics. I´m there to help people heal, not to recruit them to the conservative cause. But even my neutral statements about the tensions in Lansing were met with vehement denunciations of Gov. Snyder and the evil republicans. Needless to say, I quickly changed the subject.

The union says that people who are not members should not receive the benefits that they have "negotiated." I say fine, let the non-union workers work on the merit system and we will see just how much they can EARN in the way of benefits. The unions have done more harm than good in last few decades. They have done nothing to increase the productivity of their members, and have promoted an adversarial environment between labor and management. Union workers do not make up of the majority of the work force and amazingly, companies can still prosper and treat their employees well. Most of us don´t need bullies on our behalf to negotiate our wages and benefits. A person of good character and honesty with a good work ethic can do just fine. They will be more productive and produce better products and results. That is their leverage unlike the threat of violence or work stoppage.

Hoffa also argued that those who don´t pay union dues will be considered "free riders,” as they’re getting the same benefits from union representation without the cost.

Free riders? You mean like the welfare slugs who ride on our backs as WE pull the wagon?
Or the free riders who enjoy the benefits of lifetime pensions on OUR tax dollars?
Or maybe the free riders who flit about on Air Force One and Two on OUR tax dollars on their myriad vacations?
Or the Teachers Unions who are permitted to teach nothing and get paid for it on OUR tax dollars?
Or the free riders in Congress who get generously paid for life after they retire on OUR tax dollars?

If there are any "free riders" in this labor issue, it´s the union pensioners, thugs and enforcers who funnel OUR money into electing Democrat (never Republican) officials, Presidents, Congressmen and Senators.

The reason the unions are so hot over workers having a choice is that union dues always, always go toward electing Democrats. It´s a huge candy store and the Democrat Party can´t afford to have the flow of dollars for Democrats stopped or slowed.

For Democrats, unions hold the piggy bank.

How about that one football field-duration haymaker Camargo delivered? He´s certainly no cage fighter. The libs on other inet sites started saying Crowder´s wounds were popped pimples! You see the mindset of those sickos.

Maybe Hoffa will become an involuntary Houdini. The mobsters should start a new reality show: Union roller derby: They can wear those weird "working class" clothes, carry their preprinted anti-Republican signs etc and elbow people in the gut as they skate.

I view unions as a necessary evil especially in the skilled trades (carpentry, plumbing, electricians, welding, pipefitting, etc.). But the union has to make the case that their activities benefit the workers and the best measure of their (union) effectiveness is the voluntary payment of dues. The unions oppose Right to Work for the same reason that the IRS would oppose the elimination of Payroll Tax With holding. Its means that the ultimate payer will suddenly subject them to additional scrutiny.

i´m actually encouraged by the prediction of "civil war". It will either:

a) actually happen, in which case Hoffa´s fat sausage-eating tough-guy army will get wiped out.

or

b) it won´t happen- which will further marginalize and embarass the silly union punks like Hoffa.

Wasn´t it just the other day that Obama was in Michigan politicking against State elected officials because they were considering the ´Right to Work´ law that was passed. That is blatant federal interference in legal Michigan business and you can blame the resulting rioting on the WH.

If I was the state of Michigan, and any other state for that matter, I would deny the President any security normally provided by State and Local police when he´s flying in to purposely cause rioting and unrest. He should just butt out. Why pay for the expense of having to pay for Presidential protection and to pay for the ensuing rioting and law breaking encouraged by the Administration.

A lot of people voting for Obama realized that their current financial plight is due to the unions. This is the disconnect that Democrats have long feared. There are plenty of Democrats who personally dispise unions for their power and privlege and have no problem with Michigan becoming a right to work state as long as it stays Democratic. The union proposition was defeated with the help of Democratic voters. The message is clear, belong to a union if you want but it has nothing to do with me or my party and by the way you are the problem.

We pray they arn´t bringing their politics along as well . If that crummy state can get its act together and kick unions to the curb , maybe work will return .

Odd, isn´t it? Michigan went for Obama, yet has a legislature and a governor that are willing and able to pass a right to work law just a month after the big election. And the protests come, not from the outraged citizens of Michigan, but from thugs and goons brought in from other states. (As they were in Wisconsin.)

Anyone else feel a disturbance in the force?

Not rocket science. Union chiefs want to manipulate the market to the unions´ advantage, then take their dues, pay themselves astronomical salaries and bribe democratic politicians to support them. Any other questions?

When I was in high school I worked for $1/hr. doing semi-skilled labor. My unionized classmates made $4/hr. doing utterly brainless labor at a manufacturing plant. Guess what--the plant went out of business. The unions´ top principle: it´s good while it lasts.

Red states beware. When someone from Michigan comes looking for work take a look at his car. Look for the Obama-Biden bumper sticker or some other indicator that he carries the union virus. File his application accordingly into the shredder.

Unions are a bad 19th century European idea that was imposed into an attempt to solve a problem that arose in early-to-mid 19th century Europe - especially in Germany and France. The problem was the mass migration of millions of illiterate peasants off the land into the cities to take jobs in factories under horrendous conditions.

Many of these peasants and their advocates - (syndicalists, socialists, communists, etc.) emigrated to the U.S., bringing their problems and their attitudes with them.

We are over a hundred years past this stage, yet the Union Movement is still stuck back in the 19th century at the Homestead Mine with immigrant firebrand Mother Jones.

No, all these employees should be wearinga vest.It would be like a marathon runner vest.On it would say: "Am I working Hard?
Report goof offs" And then an employee number and an 800 number.
Then we can see some correction.
My relative works for a big public entity, is in a union, finishes his job in about 3-4 hrs and then he and the others hide out in an eco-preserve where there are large trees until the end of their shift.
Get this, they don´t even have a time clock in the dept for them or any one !
This is what is wrong with unions

We are looking at the future of the Republican Party. Forget trying to form a conservative third party. It´s not necessary.

After all the fretting about the lack of a bench at the national level of the Republican Party, this should give us all hope. While the entire current crop of would-be Republican presidential candidates at the national level are busy trying to figure out ways to not lose, there are literally thousands of conservative men and women playing take-no-prisoners triple A political hardball out in the boonies, and they´re not afraid to get their uniforms dirty. This is how the Tea Party takes over the Republican Party. From the ground up.

Even with the DOJ and IRS gestapos on your side you won´t fare well if a civil is what your leaders are calling for. And you can be sure none of them will be on the front lines.

Can the Republican Party pose the question:

Why should union members get paid more than the rest of us? Why should they have government power to enhance their own standard of living while the rest of us don´t?

The Unions add no value to the products the workers make- so we are paying higher prices so they can have higher wages. Why should this be?

I read or heard an article a couple of days ago that companies searching around for some other place or state to relocate to have told the searchers to NOT even consider ANY state that in NOT a right to work state. Now, I just wonder if the unions have heard about this? My guess is that they have and are scared ****less because of it. And for all the uproar caused by unions, it´s amazing that unions only make up 8% of the non-public sector work force. Yet they cause a large amount of trouble.

And if memory serves me, I seem to recall that a some time in the past that most of the large labor unions were controlled by the Mafia. Have the Dims simply evolved into them?

Look how well dems and unions run a place - too many cities to mention.

Do you remember when zippy said he´d walk the protest lines with his union buddies? Haven´t seen him do that yet. Maybe too much for the SS to protect him.

If Detroit was dozed, we could call it urban renewal. A definite improvement.

What happened yesterday was not my America - look how we´ve changed! Along with zippy trashing the Tenth Amendment by stepping on individual states´ rights.

Argentina´s National Institute for Agricultural Technology (INTA) has invented a way to convert cow flatulence into usable energy, and it involves putting a plastic backpack on a cow. Livestock are responsible for a remarkable amount of global methane emissions, which are a major cause of global warming. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, cow flatulence and burping, accounts for 5.5 million metric tons of methane per year in the United States, that´s 20% of total US methane emissions.

Garcia Marquez, a former journalist who was born in Colombia but lived in Mexico for more than 30 years, is best known for his 1967 masterpiece, the epic, hallucinatory novel One Hundred Years of Solitude, about the trials and tribulations of one family over several generations. Widely taught in college, it has sold about 50 million copies in more than 25 languages. His other novels include Autumn of the Patriarch (1975), about a pathological fascist

At least 12 people are dead and more than 2,000 homes have been destroyed by a large fire that wreaked havoc over the weekend in Valparaiso, Chile. Some 10,000 people have been forced to evacuate parts of the port city. Government spokesman Álvaro Elizalde says those figures are likely to go up as the fire continues to burn. The fire has been driven by strong winds, and efforts to fight the flames also have been complicated by the area´s steep terrain and lack of essential infrastructure, as NPR´s Lourdes Garcia-Navarro reports for our Newscast unit.

Amnesty: President Obama often laments "our broken immigration system" as a reason for his failure to enforce its laws. But as a wave of illegals is about to descend here, the hard fact is that it´s his own policies that broke it. The nonpartisan Inter-American Development Bank and the Migration Policy Institute both reported optimal conditions for a big wave of illegal immigration into the U.S. from Mexico and Central America soon. Based on the slowdown in China´s economy, a recovery in U.S. low-skilled jobs such as construction, and rising U.S. interest rates, it´s fair enough.

Fourteen-year-old Wasila Umaru was married last week to 35-year-old Umaru Sani, according to assistant superintendent Musa Magaji Majia. Over the weekend, the groom invited a dozen friends to celebrate at his Ungwar Yansoro village, about 60 miles from the northern city of Kano.

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes.

The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief

Today is Earth Day. Fox News’ The Five opened its show with a nearly 15 minute segment titled “Earth Day Hysteria.” The goal appeared to be to prove that scientists’ warnings about climate change are overblown and should be ignored if not outright mocked and co-host Eric Bolling was the ringleader of the effort. But he found an adversary in Bob Beckel, who challenged the status quo by presenting actual data on the rise of CO2 levels from NASA, of all places. But before Beckel got to his chart, Bolling took some time to “praise” President Barack Obama for what
