Union Thugs caught terrorizing Americans

Yes, you read that right. While Hannity, O'Reilly and Limbaugh have been railing against union workers in Wisconsin, all three of them belong to an AFL-CIO affiliate union.

BFD. Ironic? I guess. But if they are in unions, it's probably a "condition of employment", as negotiated by whatever union has a contract where they work. You join the union, or you don't work. It's the opposite of "right to work". Guessing if they had a choice, it would be no. Nothing to see here, move along.

Honesty would have compelled them to mention their union connections at some point and they did not do so. That is obviously significant.

Yes, except none of those names mentioned are about honesty. They are all about selling a show to a tv audience of ditto-heads. Remember last year when they were broadcasting the "violence" in the Madison protests in Feb/March with film footage showing palm trees in the background? How many of those do you see growing a-n-y-w-h-e-r-e in outdoors Wisconsin? I do believe at that time we had about a foot of snow on the ground.

Being a member of a Union is not quite the same as "right to work" which seems to be saying minimum wage is good enough for every worker and let the government pay for their health care ala Walmart style.
