    500 or more Longshoremen storm Wash. port grain terminal, take guards hostage, cause damage...

    1. LONGVIEW, Wash. - Hundreds of Longshore workers stormed the Port of Longview, overpowered security guards, damaged rail cars and dumped grain at the center of a labor dispute that has spread to Seattle and Tacoma ports, officials said Thursday.

    Six guards were detained for a couple of hours after 500 or more Longshoremen broke down gates about 4:30 a.m. and smashed windows in the guard shack, said Longview Police Chief Jim Duscha.

    The International Longshore and Warehouse Union believes it has the right to work at the facility, but the company has hired a contractor that's staffing a workforce of other union laborers.

    In Seattle and Tacoma, a wildcat strike shut down both ports after hundreds of Longshore workers failed to show up for work on Thursday.

    3. G.E. to Share Jet Technology With China in New Joint Venture

    As China strives for leadership in the world’s most advanced industries, it sees commercial jetliners — planes that may someday challenge the best from Boeing and Airbus — as a top prize.

    And no Western company has been more aggressive in helping China pursue that dream than one of the aviation industry’s biggest suppliers of jet engines and airplane technology, General Electric.

    Those who voted for this President installed a thug who embraces other thugs as brethren, and as seen with othe Democrat Presidents, has no qualms allowing American technology, our nation's defense, to be strewn as 'pearls before swine'.


    Clear now?

    Obama has been for sale from the git go. I don't think he has ever wanted a second term as long as he can make it big in 4 years and he is well on his way. When you examine his past it is mediocre at best and poor in any regards. We need to learn to speak Chinese if this keeps up. Immelt, give me a break.

    And to further comment on the thug-nature of this Chicago Pol and his boys, Holder recently raided the Gibson Guitar Company...supposedly because it imported wood illegally.(No prostitute jokes here.)

    But the subtext seems to be that Republican donors beware...

    "It has come out that Juszkiewicz is a Republican donor, while the CEO of one of his principal competitors, C.F. Martin & Company, is a Democratic donor. Martin reportedly uses the same wood, but DOJ hasn’t raided them, leading to speculation that the Obama administration is sending a warning to Republican businessmen that they had better not oppose his re-election, lest they face criminal investigations. Normally such speculation would not be credible, but Eric Holder has politicized the Department of Justice to a point where such questions must be taken seriously."

    It's clear. Fox Nation hates Obama and want to make irrational links between illegal activity of some fed up union workers and Obama.

    That behavior by a union, combined with these union comments the other day, bother me a lot.

    You need to be spoon-fed the ' irrational links'??

    Here ya' go, Inspector Clouseau:

    Dock workers behave as thugs...-> the union's leader is Trumka...-> Obama honors Trumka by inviting him to the speech...-> Obama, same with Immelt...-> Immelt as head of Obama's job council, ships jobs over to China, and hands over technology that can be used in jet figters, as well.

    Now if this is exactly what you wish in your President, step up to the mic....
