    The Democrats openly ally themselves with violent Unions. Yet can not point to a single instance of violence By Republicans or the Tea party.

    I guess you missed the report out of Tacoma Wa where 500 Union thugs rioted broke fences, vandalized buildings poured grain out of rail cars cut rail car brakes and trapped 6 guards in a building for hours? Right?

    The GOP openly aligns itself with the violent Tea Party.

    Next time they are coming armed to water the tree of liberty.

    Good to see you are back to your old hyperpartisan self, Sarge. That "everyone say something nice" thread just wasn't like you.

    Violence isn't a party issue. It's a human issue.

    Perhaps it's time to stop accusing everyone else of being violent but instead encourage everyone to be peaceful and set the example.

    I'm sick of people only looking at a single side of problems. Both parties are basically running on the rhetoric of hatred, anger and violence right now. It's really starting to bother me because America is basically split into two factions that no longer care that the other side is also made of American Citizens.

    It's a little disconcerting to see the country so fucking split. It's worse than the economy.

    He was in charge of the Actors Guild, not even remotely like the teamsters or AFL CIO. They do not riot, they do not murder, they do not intimidate.

    Reagan knew where the priorities lie. He broke the Air Traffic Controllers Union when they illegally struck. He gave them a warning to return to work or be permanently fired, they did not believe him. He ordered them fired with no chance for working ever again in that field.
