We all know by now that the apple falls not far from the tree, when it comes to the "family business", but Hoffa has clearly pointed out his very real fear (no, not the trunk of a large sedan) of Tea Party politics, and how it might possible affect the union boss' personal retirement package. Hoffa would gladly exchange the dues of hard working laborers for the safety and comfort of knowing he has the ear of government officials both local and nationally.
And when I say "ear" I mean on a necklace.
Speaking to a Detroit crowd of hand picked supporters Hoffa declares:
Happy labor day.
Or did he mean to Wendy's for a dollar chicken sandwich?

I sincerely hope this bigger picture view goes a long way in clarifying the f-allah-cy of 'peaceful' muslims living in America with how they and their enablers actually cherish our God given freedoms.
There is a lot more to be said for the rally in Lansing from yesterday. The stark contrast in how people behave, and the emotion level between this type of rally and what we as conservatives might engage in. (tea parties) Frequently surrounded by packs of union employees (NOT ALWAYS MEMBERS) from MESSA, MEA, UAW, we were not allowed to make any reasonable argument for more than 3 seocnds before hearing "Koch brothers! "Corporate welfare! etc.." Being shouted down was standard fare, and for the most part our group remained rather calm and dignified.
I say "for the most part" because I had to give an anthropological lesson to an English teacher at one point. (an explanation of the build up to fighting like apes) This was complete with an acted out sequence of what happens before two gorillas begin to tear out each other's throats. I don't believe he appreciated being taught, and wouldn't stop yelling after that, so I turned my back to him and began a conversation with a more reasonable person.
I went through some of the video from the Saturday February 26 rally in Lansing last night before hitting it. I would be lying if I said there were no civil conversations held, but frankly the few that were indeed civil, could not make up for the cat calls, the abusive language, and physical intimidation offered by those whom we disagree with.
For my part, I am convinced many of the labor union members that go to these rallies are little more than animals. They operate on a feral code of emotional response akin to dogs in a pack. Violent tendencies seem to be their commonality, with no regard to personal property, or the physical well being of their fellow man. As one example, in the video below, my son was using the camera to pan across the crowd, but was identified as being with our small group of tea partiers.
