  •  Thank you for being there Memiller (4+ / 0-)

    and for the truth about this.

    I think the unions need to make reparations, pay for the collapsed tent, the cell phone, apologize and take any other necessary action.

    Appreciate your presence.

      Is this snark?  Were you similarly concerned when the cops pulled down Occupy tents?

      reimbursement from ALEC and the Koch brothers. Not one cent of union money should go to them.

      Victims should not apologize for finally fighting back.

      AFP seeks to actively make the lives of their fellow Americans worse, all in the name of making rich people richer. They deserve everything bad that happens to them.

      but first they should pay us for the harm they have done to us.

      While they fot health care reform, how many Americans died. 40,000  per year. They should compensate the families. O f course these are lives not tents or cell phones, so hard to fix a prices.

      While they sided with the banks people lost their homes, they should compensate those people.

      While they fot UE extension, workers lost everything, they should compensate those people.

      Once they've done that, sure, replace their tent and their cell phone. Fair is fair.

      Odd that we must be perfect even as we lose our livelihoods. Even in a demo of thousands, we must every single person behave perfectly. In the mean time the ruling class goes unpunished for their crimes.

      •  PS & while they fight regulations (0+ / 0-)

        1000's of American workers die on the job every year.  Several of them were my IUOE local 49 union brothers. 1979 was a bad year, we lost 5, 1 on a job that I worked on.

        Not much compensation there either.

        I'd say we are owed a lot long before we start paying any out.

        And I'd advise Cowder not to get up in face of any 49er either, including this one, he might not like the result.

        They have plenty of money. Fuck 'em.

          If you read my whole post, you should know that there is NO danger of them ever meeting the conditions of the deal that I was suggesting.

          Our deaths matter not even one little bit to them.
          But if we get even a little angry, then Oh, my what terrible thugs we are!

          We should just starve and die quietly and politely without any public disturbance of any kind, lest we risk being called union thugs.
