    Default Let's take the SOB's out-Hoffa

    very disappointed in the ratcheted up rhetoric and speech by James Hoffa at the BHO labor rally yesterday,aimed at the TEA Party,just seems that this type of hatred speech only inflames the discourse and deepens the divide in our country..I am all for "firing up the base" of your chosen political party, but in this case the labor leader went too far

    No surprise Bon, the only surprise was that Obama didn't say "if they bring a knife, we bring a gun".

    Yesterday, Biden was fimed telling a union crowd they were the only ones "keeping the Barbarians from the gate". Nothing new. They only say the want to play civil to get the Republicans to back down... then they keep firing. We have to learn that they mean business when it comes to elections and that they will lie, cheat, steal (remember Acorn?) and anything else to win.

    I think you meant that Hoffa is gone because he QUIT playing ball with the mob.

    Detroit has seen a lot of violence related to labor relations sponsored by both sides. However, the results of corporate sponsored violence has been way more lethal. The Reuther brothers had numerous assassination attempts. Victor Reuther was blinded in one eye by a shotgun blast through his bedroom window. Genora Dollinger, a UAW activist was brutally beaten with a lead pipe by by an assailant that broke into her home while she was asleep.

    It was later revealed by Senator Estes Kefauver’s Investigating Committee that the Mafia, hired by corporate leaders, was responsible for this and other beatings of UAW officials and the shooting of UAW President Walter Reuther and his brother, Victor Reuther.

    It is widely known that Walter Reuther was killed in a plane where the altimeter was tampered with. Both Walter and Victor survived a similar plane crash the year before.

    I must have missed it. Where was the coorporate proven violence? I saw where you cited mob(union backed?) violence.
