Port of Longview, Washington about 400 longshoreman storm gates of port and hold security guards hostage . They also cut brake lines to trains and scuffled with police. Socialists at work, just because they did not like the company hiring others to do the job. Typical.

Longshoremen storm Wash. state port, damage RR

LONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) — Hundreds of Longshoremen stormed the Port of Longview early Thursday, overpowered and held security guards, damaged railroad cars, and dumped grain that is the center of a labor dispute, said Longview Police Chief Jim Duscha.

Six guards were held hostage 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, he said.

non union people do bad things also.
you are right they do, you have a wonderful way to totally ignore the thread. My family has had windows shot out of the house in the 50'S and it wasn't done by non-union thugs but the ones trying to unionize our company.

if a movement ever starts to cure idiocy you will be the poster child.

I ran a trucking operation years ago and we had a teamster vote and the company won 100% and I ask our employees why we had the election in the first place and they said (their words not mine) "it was the only way to get the goons from coming by the house and harassing us.

And what is to be expected when a major political party goes after the income and jobs of others? Are you ignorant of American History & the violence on both sides during the emergence of the labor movement?

Self defined conservatives and the pols who hope to earn an advantage by going after the working men and women of this country need to (lol, as if they can) think about the consequences before they act (or vote). You ain't seen nothing yet (and, btw, I was a manager in a law enforecment agency before I retired, so don't lump me in as a new iteration of a Wobblie).

With Union idiocy is a given. During the 1972 vote the teamster official in Kansas City with two offices, one was just a plain Jane affair where he met with the members of the union and the other down town in a bank that was very plush but he kept is secret. Typical I think.

WTF are you talking about? The company hired union laborers...just from a different union! What working men and women? The majority of working men and women do not belong to unions...

I am fully aware of this history with the unions such as the teamsters which is why Hoffa's comments the other day bothered me so much

Ah, duh, the Republican Party is attacking unions, try to keep up, junior. It has become one of their 'causes' along with ending Social Security, Medicare, Medicade, Unemployment compensaton, health care reform, the EPA, FDA and any an all regulations designed to protect consumers.

Ah, you were bothered, poor baby. You and the other members of the echo chamber following Hannity's rant about Hoffa's comment blistered the web with your feigned outrage. You're nothing but a parrot P_P, go get a cracker (plenty of 'em in the South).

Just admit you didn't read the article...

I mean it's obvious, but you should admit it anyway, because what you are spewing has absolutely nothing to do with the incident...

In your head
Just wait until the I-35 Corridor is completed. All of the US ports will close & the longshoreman will no longer have a job. Everything will come into Mexico's ports so companies don't have to be held hostage by these union thugs.

Apparently the union thug president, Trumka, is a guest of honor at Barry's "There ain't no jobs" speech tonight...
