    wouldn't stand for that.  I would bet that the government would need to call out the national guard if they tried to decertify the ILWU.  This is one of the most militant unions in the country, and they move millions if not billions of dollars of products every year.  If they try to get rid of this union then the ports get shut the fuck down, not for a day, but for as long as it takes.  And now the folks in charge know the ILWU has the occupations on board.

    I dare them to try it.

    There revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.

       I am afraid that the government would, and there would be much blood shed. Blood from our side, not from the powers that be.

      Where are all the jobs, Boehner?
