    I’m sure the Union calls the vote illegal, and it probably is. But it certainly is a vote of NO CONFIDENCE in the union by the majority of its members. It will be interesting to see what happens at the end of the week.

    Columbian unions are Marxists to the core with ties to Marxist FARC terrorists funded in part by Hugo Chavez. They are revolutionaries at heart, not union representatives, and their ideology trumps the welfare of their own workers to the point of becoming a slave to their union boss's. Columbia had restrictions on them until Obama refused to sign the Columbian free trade agreement unless they released the restrictions on socialism in their free economy. This is another reason why Chaves, Castro, Putin, and other (Socialist/Communist/Marxist/haters of America) regularly praise Obama and denounce his republican challengers.

    Well, we have violent leftists/union protesters and union intimidation; however, threats against the lives of the employer’s families and kidnappings during union negotiations typically don't happen in the United States. Nor does the union call its Chavez funded terrorist buddies to come help. However, our president did help the unions of Columbia to become the violent political cesspool that it is today by refusing to sign the free trade agreement until Columbia gave the violent terrorist connected leftists trying to destroy capitalism by any means necessary more rights to destroy capitalism. This is the kind of stuff that the SEIU holds romantic nostalgia for.
