Let’s see how long it takes for one of these good ole boys threaten to drop some brass on us. This is truly the home of the very extreme right wing. In reality you’re just like those lefty nut jobs you rail about. A spade is a spade.

Looks like everyone has an agenda. I have mine and proud to be a union member. We All just need to get along and get over it! The unions are here to stay! United we stand….and woe unto those who scab. Your deeds will not be forgotten!
August 21, 2011 at 12:02am
And you’re easy : ) Damn that talk radio. I think the unions need to buy some advertising spots from rush, beck, hannity. haha that would be priceless!

Hey model82…after you get done cleaning that gun of yours and assuming you don’t have an accident. You’d better hide that thing….ole bama is coming for it. Sooner or later it’s gonna happen. That’s what you boys outta be worried about. Instead of hating on union workers.
Wow - I didn't realize that anyone used landlines anymore! Interesting! Oh, and MPLSV14-1 is right - Obama's coming for the guns! http://wp.me/pYLB7-1vV
MPLS, You're warning the owner of a .50 Cal semi-automatic weapon to prepare to defend himself? I reiterate, you are SHARP.
Good. I'm glad to see the Unions were NOT able to bully Verizon. If the Unions had just stayed true to their original purpose... protecting workers rights... instead of getting so deeply involved in politics, they wouldn't be losing members like crazy. Here's another perfect example of Marxist dirt-bags ruining something that at one time was a force for good.
Unions can organize on the bottom of the ocean for all I care.
And having rallies on peoples private property might fly in some states but they would have a much different reception in mine. Fear can be used by anyone. Try to remember that late at night.
The only thing a union has done for me in my life, is take money out of my paycheck, and ignore me when the company I worked for went out of buisness, because they couldn't compete with overseas companies. But hey, at least they got me another job, oh wait, they didn't, in fact they just sent a letter saying, your dues are overdue, please pay them.
Your link goes to a site about 9/11 and Iran's and S. Arabia's complicity. Something about Bush covering up the link between them. OK. Bush sucked. Obama sucks. What is the connection between your comment and the link? Are you claiming Verizon was also in cahoots with Iran and Saudi Arabia and Bush knew that too? Bastards! I thought so all along!
Its amazing how these unions keep asking for more and more and yet on the residendial side people dont make as much money nor do they have the benefits either. My wife doesnt make half as much as i do and yet the union still demands more.
ObaMao doesn't care about guns right. Dang man, him and Holder are running guns into Mexico like gangstas...
Employees should opt-out of the Union before they put them in the streets for good
Private unions can do what they want! It's their business, NOT OURS! Public unions are a different matter.
Worry about my gun? I am not worried about the union worker, I am worried about the union bosses. And as far as my gun? Well you just try and take it.
Unions were first controlled by the Mafia. Now they are controlled by communist's. Either these union members have their heads up their buts, or they are commies. Which is it?
A few people still do. I have a land line, and 2 cell phones (mine and my husband's) so we were thinking about dropping the land line. My parents (79 and 71) are going to drop their landline and upgrade their cell phone and get mom a back up go-phone that you put minutes on. It's becoming a dinosaur and a luxury if you already have a cell.
The days of The Big Unions are over .. the time is now.
Its not the employees that are hated.
It is the UNION GREED that is detested.
You see, when a group of people form a REAL UNION, and ONE OF THE PEOPLE speaks for the rest of the people... FOR FREE... That is a REAL UNION.
When a group of people PAY an ORGANIZATION to represent them - well, that is just CORRUPTION of CAPITALISM. How? Well, in a REAL UNION, there are TWO parties, and ONLY two parties to a negotiation. They have a common mutual goal of succeeding together, while the labor supplier does not get unfairly treated. The "big evil corporation" seeks to maximize profit for its shareholders. The "REAL UNION" seeks to maximize pay and benefits for its employees. PERIOD.
However, this is corrupted and bastardized when you add a CORPORATE UNION - a third party, to the negotiations. You see, the UNION has its OWN interests to look out for. The time WAS, when "UNION LABEL" meant "MADE IN AMERICA" - no more. Unions have gone international to assure their OWN survival. Now, the union is NOT just YOUR representative, they are looking out for THEIR best interests first. Then, they also look out for yours, in as much as it does not interfere with THEIR OWN UNION-CORPORATE GREED!
Now, the "big evil corporation" has TWO parties to negotiate with, and one of them is NOT honest.
DOWN WITH "UNIONS, INCORPORATED" ! !
Walk with me - While most people think land lines are obsolete, I don't and here's why. In 1988 I was managing a store that had a phone system that was electrical. I guess it would be an early Voice over IP system. The air conditioning unit on the roof caught fire and the electricity went out almost as soon the fire alarms went off. No phones. While I cleared the building, one of my guys literally ran to the fire station a block away. It turns out that our home office got the alarm and they had to call the emergency in , which didn't happen for another 15 minutes. By the time the fire department was notified, the firefighters had ALREADY put out the blaze.
Also, you may remember a major northeast blackout about five or so years ago. The cell towers went down. People could not use their cell phones. The regular landlines still worked. So, I'll be holding on to my land line as long as possible.
Oh really! Obama is coming after my weapons!! Tell MP, is going to sending YOU to come and take them?
15,000,000 Unemployed....please continue to strike...they can hire MBA's and PHD's in this "oblamo" economy....or his back door "dream act"...he!! , now a flash light can get a "green card" so may as well hire those who Can't Read a BALLOT..."touchie feelie thingy" ya know...US CITIZEN's, how's that view from UNDER THE BUS????...oh BTW he put the screws to ALL, reguardless of SKIN PIGMATATION......keep buying that "snake oil" he's got an UNLIMITED SUPPLY...
Union members think they are doing a good thing, marching in their red shirts. Don't they realize they have been taken over by communist organizers? If they read some history, they would know that red is the color of communism. Fists in the air, marching, slogans, signs, etc. are right out of the communist Saul Alinsky's playbook.
Workers of the World- WAKE UP!
1401. American Federation of Government Employees Local 1401 at Andrews Airforce Base. Local is not labeled "workers, operators, labors, electricians, painters, plasters". Labeling members workers or trades persons of any kind would be an oxymoron.
I still use a landline! On 9/11 the only way I was able to see if family members were o.k. was by landline! Reconsider permantly switching totally! I keep both. FYI of course!
Guess unions don't work...

Communications Workers of America CWA, the largest telecommunications union in the world, represents over 700,000 men and women in both private and public sectors, including over half a million workers who are building the Information Highway. Note: above "private and public"
And directly affiliated with SEIU & the UAW...so they directly effect all people living in the US

The CWA started wearing red in the 80's after one of their stewards was run over and killed by a manager in a work truck during a strike. I agree it's not the greatest choice of colors, but it was not chosen as a connection to communism.
name a union or a union member that has done anything decent in the past 30 or so years. At this point the unions are a bunch of thugs and don't deserve to be treated as anything else. Unions need to be destroyed.
August 20, 2011 at 11:27pm
Go clean your gun pal….just make sure it’s not loaded. Besides what’s wrong with a fast food job? It’s non union! Just what you boys want.
August 20, 2011 at 10:59pm
Cancell it. You have a choice. Stop your damn whining!
August 20, 2011 at 10:55pm
Keep paying it pal…I’ve got one he’ll of a lifestyle to keep ; )
August 20, 2011 at 10:52pm
At least you didn’t cross the picket line bro. From the comments I’ve read on here regarding the strike. The union seriously needs a pr overhaul. Only one side of thecsory is being heard. It’s sad.
August 20, 2011 at 10:33pm
Trigger happy…eh pappy? Don’t worry….the ole boy on Capitol hill is coming for those guns you brag about. Soon enough! Maybe you outta consider paying him a visit first? That would be entertainment!! Let us know if ya make the trip! Keep yer powder dry!
August 20, 2011 at 10:26pm
That would be…go change a diaper and get dinner ready for you babe. Bam! Next problem!
August 19, 2011 at 11:36pm
Really, how do you people get so brainwashed one way or the other. Left or right? Union non union? Black and white? I’d be willing to bet you don’t know a damn thing about the union, verizon, the contract etc. If your company was trying to take away what had been in place for years and in a time where they are making huge profits. You would stand up and raise a little hell yourself. So wipe the smug look off your unimformed face!
August 19, 2011 at 8:48pm
You guys can rail against the unions all you want. A scab is still worse. I’ll make sure every last stinking one I work with will never forget what they did.
August 19, 2011 at 8:33pm
What’s worse? A union member who pickets civilly or a scab who crosses the line and works and shares no sacrifice in the contract his union co workers provided for him? He should give back to the company what he didn’t earn and work for a non union wage. The rest of the scabs career will be hell. Hope it’s worth it?you know who you are and most importantly….so do we!
It is better to work for a non-union wage than participate in sabotage, cutting phone lines, intimidating people's families at their homes, threatening people who cross a picket line to actually work and feed their own families. There is a long history of corruption and violence in the unions. There is more honor in an individual who gets a job on his own merit, negotiates his own salary, gets more education, or looks for a new and better job if he is not happy.

Another original thought…
August 19, 2011 at 8:20pm
Cant get unemployment benefits if you get fired genius!
August 19, 2011 at 8:17pm
Yeah but most cant pass the UTB exam or the urine test for that matter!
August 19, 2011 at 8:11pm
Pray for you? You are unbelievable pal! Go scab and reap the rewards of the new contract…after your former cwa brother and sisters went without a paycheck to provide you with a good paying job. I don’t agree with everything the union stands for myself…but I would die before crossing a picket line. The rest of your career will be hell for you. Hope it’s worth it!
August 19, 2011 at 10:50am
Better hope to god your standard of living comes down to that of any third world country! Our labor rates will hopefully never compete with that. Anyone know how much money verizon makes? They can afford to provide the stable middle class jobs that they have been providing for years. We make them lots of money. We are a valuable resource. We don’t go job hunting. We have a good job and know it! The turnover rate is very low and men stay for 30 years. You won’t and don’t see that in the ununionized wireless division. Hell any snappy 20 year old kid can peddle smart phones and talk down to you. Most of us are not bums and work very hard. I work 60 hours a week myself. We just want to keep what we have and not go backwards. Nothing more.
Times are changin buddy & we all are feeling the pinch just because your communist leaders tell you that you are special because your in a union & that you "deserve" you high salary, excellent benefits & free retirement plan doesnt mean its true. The TRUTH is the good times are over in America & your over inflated salary has gots to go. Unless you want your employer bankrupt & then you wont have a job to go too. Theres plenty of other people that would be greatful for a job as half as good as yours so stop acting like thugs & animals & go back to work like the rest of us who still have jobs.
Good trick if you can do it, most especially in this awful economy can not, did you notice our unemployment number? And it's not your work ethic - it's your mob mentally and the stupidity of your union bosses pulling dumbass stunts like this that show the real side of unions and most Americans are fed-up and hope all unions fail, not the workers, but the unions. And if you can't see the wrong in this type of action then I hope you loose your job, pension everything because you don't deserve it if you approve of this conduct at someone's home.
August 19, 2011 at 10:14am
You simple minded fools…do you not think verizon would outsource every job possible if they could? What’s in the kool aid you guys drink for these big corporations? They don’t give a damn about you or I . The union keeps them honest! You are just as brainwashed as your liberal counterparts you rail about. Bunch of damn country comes to town once a year Jimmy crack corn rednecks….wake up!!! Your jobs are going over seas and you are seeing throwing rice at them and hoping to catch the bouquet from the bride! ” fire them…and I’ll take whatever is left” idiots!!!!!
overburdensome taxes and regulation, and unsustainable union contracts, and a tax code set up by our elected "heros" that rewards companies for exporting jobs. this is why you union dolts are being outsourced.
August 16, 2011 at 10:09pm
You my friend fit the profile of a S.C.A.B. Don’t think it would work out well for you to try and take another persons bargained for job. That man would be a fool. Strength is in numbers and that’s why our union will stick together and succeed on the very scab of your spine-less back. Maybe you should send someone you don’t like pal? Anyone who crosses a picket line to scab….and then has the nerve to reap the rewards of the new ” bargained for” contract? Are you kidding me?I’d hate to be that guy. Sounds like it could be you!
