Speaking Of Union Thugs As 0bama Buddies…
Last Friday [09/03] I went on a tirade involving the “Clown Prince” and his union-thug buddies.  Unbeknownst to me, later the same day Michelle Maulkin published the below article on “National Review Online(http://www.nationalreview.com/):”

Big Labor’s Legacy of Violence               
When it comes to terrorizing workers, the head of the AFL-CIO knows whereof he speaks:

    To mark Labor Day 2010, President Obama will join hands with AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka in Milwaukee, and they will pose as champions of the working class. Bad move. Trumka’s organizing record is a shameful reminder of the union movement’s violent and corrupt foundations.
    The new Obama/AFL-CIO power alliance — underwritten with $40 million in hard-earned worker dues — is a midterm shotgun marriage of Beltway brass knuckles and Big Labor brawn. Trumka warmed up his rhetorical muscles this past week with full-frontal attacks on former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. He indignantly accused her of “getting close to calling for violence” and suggested that her criticism of tea-party-bashing labor bosses amounted to “terrorizing” workers.
    Trumka and Obama will cast Big Labor as an unassailable force for good in American history. But when it comes to terrorizing workers, Trumka knows whereof he speaks.  Meet Eddie York. He was a workingman whose story will never scroll across Obama’s teleprompter. A nonunion contractor who operated heavy equipment, York was shot to death during a strike called by the United Mine Workers 17 years ago. Workmates who tried to come to his rescue were beaten in an ensuing melee. The head of the UMW spearheading the wave of strikes at that time? Richard Trumka. Responding to concerns about violence, he shrugged to the Virginian-Pilot in September 1993: “I’m saying if you strike a match and you put your finger in it, you’re likely to get burned.” Incendiary rhetoric, anyone?
    A federal jury convicted one of Trumka’s UMW captains on conspiracy and weapons charges in York’s death. According to the Washington, D.C.–based National Legal and Policy Center, which tracks Big Labor abuse, Trumka’s legal team quickly settled a $27 million wrongful death suit filed by York’s widow just days after a judge admitted evidence in the criminal trial. An investigative report by Reader’s Digest disclosed that Trumka “did not publicly discipline or reprimand a single striker present when York was killed. In fact, all eight were helped out financially by the local.”
    In Illinois, Trumka told UMW members to “kick the s**t out of every last” worker who crossed his picket lines, according to the Nashville (Ill.) News. And as the National Right to Work Foundation, the leading anti-forced-unionism organization in the country, pointed out, other UMW coalfield strikes resulted in what one judge determined were “violent activities . . . organized, orchestrated and encouraged by the leadership of this union.”
    Trumka washed off the figurative bloodstains and moved up the ranks. As AFL-CIO secretary, he notoriously refused to testify in a sordid 1999 embezzlement trial involving his labor-boss brethren at the Teamsters Union. No surprise. Thugs of a feather: Trumka’s violence-promoting record echoes the riotous Teamsters strikes dating back to the 1950s, when the union organized taxicab companies to target workers with gas bombs, bottles, and fists.
    And now, Trumka is spearheading a Democratic get-out-the-vote campaign by far-left groups — publicized in the revolutionary-Marxist People’s World — to “energize an army of tens of thousands who will return to their neighborhoods, churches, schools and voting booths to prevent a Republican takeover of Congress in November and begin building a new permanent coalition to fight for a progressive agenda.”

Take those as literal fighting words. The bloody consequences of compulsory unionism cannot be ignored.

Speaking Of Union “Thugs”
   AFL-COI’s “Thug-in-Chief” has gone on the attack; his current victim: Sarah Palin!  During a blather opportunity with the Christian Science Monitor editorial board, Richard “killing-for-the-union-is-ok” Trumka noted that Ms Palin has ascended a position of leadership in opposition to the “Clown Prince” and fascism.  His primary rant concerns her suggesting that union membership would be better served supporting “the common sense, conservative movement.”  Mrs Palin’s Facebook page has the following quote in response to Trumka’s rantings:
Speaking Of “Fat Kids….” Blogspot.com is so f*c*ed up–this headline appears in the ‘Trumka/Palin’ article, NOT where it’s supposed to be–after the Palin quote!!!!  It’s too time consuming to put right, so bear with blogspot’s software writing ineptness!!

“Today’s unions seem to be big government’s most enthusiastic supporters,” she said, adding “you don’t have to put up with the scare tactics and the big government agenda of the union bosses. There is a different home for you: the common sense conservative movement.”

    Not only do we have “Michelle-the-Moocher” whining about all the ‘fat kids’ in America; not only do we see “Michelle-the-Moocher” shovelling ice cream into her pie-hole at a “2-40 gait;” not only does “Michelle-the-Moocher” have an ass “due credit–a forty-dollar mule;” we now have the ruling class suggesting that doctors write prescriptions to–and for–fat kids!! With the great numbers of America’s children on drugs to alter/control their tempers, attention span, etc; They’ll now be subjected to fat control drugs as well!!  Only in America..!! 
Sidebar:
As you may have guessed, I like to illustrate the “audacity IS the 0bamas” with photos.  I know I’ve seen a photo of ‘…the-Moocher’ seemingly eating ice cream with a shovel–I couldn’t find it!!  

What I did find will amaze you!!  In the comments section after an article in “The American Thinker” on-line magazine,  I found this lady’s comments on an article about the regime and ‘fat kids:’

My son brought a packet of papers home from school during the first week of classes. This packet was from our county health department and his school, in cooperation with the federal government. The program is We Can [Yes, We Can], and is supposedly devoted to ending childhood obesity. I went to the website at wecan.nhlbi.nih.gov/. I was shocked (shocked, I say) to find a part devoted to community organizers.
The packet consisted of charts telling us what foods to give our kids regularly, which foods to give them occasionally, and which foods are better avoided. It’s a good thing we have nannies in Washington now, because we parents are such ninnies we don’t know what foods to give our children.
The piece de resistance was the final paragraph in this packet. I’m paraphrasing, but it said that we all must be concerned with fighting childhood obesity because unhealthy eating will lead to unhealthy citizens and a huge health care bill down the road that WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO AFFORD. Yes, they will steal our money to give to others for their healthcare, but when it comes time to pay for our own care, foreget about it!
