Yes the union invest money, do you know why the invest money? Just taking a shot in the dark here, but the money that is invested is in fact its member retirement fund. Many unions manage there member retirement funds. When you have large amounts of money to invest it is normally not a great idea to just let Joe Schmoe do your investing.

When you need brain surgery you don't go to a Gynecologist do you? It's the same when investing money like it or not its a smart choice regardless of your belief in there ethics and or morals.


thank you and good day/night depending on your location in this universe.

I know right. Things like fair wages and 8 hour work days forced companies to move to the 3rd world to get new slaves. Damn those humanist bastards that dare stand together for a better life. There was a time in this country when line workers and craftsmen alike would breathe asbestos, get exposed to formaldehyde and they liked it!

When I would go to school every morning and stand up in class to recite the pledge of allegiance to my flag it was not to recite any allegiance to the elites who run our country. I was pledging allegiance to the flag of Jefferson, Franklin, and Washington, to the millions of men who laid down their lives in the Revolution, War of 1812, Civil War, WWI, WWII, and all the other wars to protect and preserve our Republic. That is what the flag means to me, which is what I pledged allegiance to. My blood, honor, and treasure are invested completely in this Republic, not the ones who have pillaged it.

Our best chances for changing anything in this country is to agree that there is only one thing we need to do; assert our God given rights guaranteed to us in the Constitution. We do not need to try and change that, we must change who governs us both in public and behind the curtain.

I fear many people at this Occupy Wall Street because they are not doing this to assert our Constitutional and God given rights, many are Communists, Socialists, and Radicals. What we need to do is all take up the battalion, all the proud Liberal, Moderate, and Conservative Americans who love this Republic and its Constitution, and march down to Wall Street and tell them that we won’t take it anymore. Do not leave the protests to the extremists on either the Right or Left, it needs to be Joe Public or else nothing will change.


I totally agree with you, but we are passing the limit of no return as each passing year the government amends more and more of the constitution and changes it to suit it's own ends. We have been protesting peacefully for years and has it had no effect. These scumbags speak an entirely different language than the commoners do, and they will never be on the same level as us until we take drastic measures. The system is corrupt and it is broken and it is in dire need of replacing. We have come full circle to the point where people are peacefully protesting get pepper sprayed in the eyes for excersicing their constitutional rights. If americans keep sticking their heads in the sand the way they have been for the last 100 years, it won't be much longer when the day comes and they realise they no longer have constitutional rights.

What we have is devolving from a democracy and rapidly turning into an aristocracy. An aristocracy is a system of government that is run by those who have the wealth and power to influence the ruling body or government. They do this by "gifting" politicians with money, they call it a "gift" because iif they said it was a bribe it would make it illegal. It doesnt matter if it is called a "gift" or a bribe" if you offer money to buy a political vote or decision it is bribery. The word "gift" is just a pretty word for a bribe.

Sorry, but this doesn't excite me at all...at least not yet.

My guess is that there will be government sponsored agent provocateurs in the mix for the purpose of starting violence, and when that happens then you'll see the MSM all over this story. In one fell swoop, this movement will be labeled "terrorist" and die.

On the off chance that they prove that they are sincere, then I'll get excited.

I'm not negative, I'm cynical. There's a world of difference.

The watts powering your machine were created in a powerhouse built by Union Craftsmen. The power was carried to you on lines built by Union Linemen. When a storm knocks down those lines at 3am it is Union Linemen that leave their families and risk their lives so that you can charge your cellphone while you sleep. The data network you use to share your opinion goes through data centers build by Union Wiremen. When you bought your computer, it was brought to you on Union freight along with your food and your panties. When hurricanes destroy our Oil refineries, it is Union Craftsmen that travel across the nation to rebuild them while living in tent cities. Sorry that we have done so much to "destroy" your comfort zone.

Or maybe I'm completely wrong and you have built your own self sufficient power generating plant on your property. After which you built your own computer from parts at radio shack and somehow miracled your post onto ATS servers.

I hope this is genuine, the time for change is yesterday and 'Time' is something we are all running out of. If things are left for much longer without protest or action then the opportunity to make this world a better place will slip through our fingers forever.

Long live the unions, for all their corruption they are still essential to the vast mayjority of citizens in any given country.

Hey I support any kind of protest anywhere in the states right now. Corruption is at an all time high and paychecks are at an all time low. People are losing everything.

You really want banks to pay attention. While your protesting stop in at your bank pull out your money and close your accounts. That's where the real protest will begin. If people started closing accounts in mass numbers, bankers wouldn't be smiling anymore. Your money is their money as long as it sits in their bank.

When you take your money back they lose control. Crooked banks will fall quickly. IMO this is where the revolution begins.

For those of you that don't think banks are destroying this country you are dead wrong. Banks for years have made it their mission to put you in debt. And they have succeeded.

Better start writing. This may be the start of the moment when everything turns. If they stay strong more will join eventually. We may be witnessing history in the making.

A member of TWU Local 100 told a reporter that they would join the protest Friday at 4PM.

Here's more about them from their website:


Sweet! Let the American Spring begin!


So I guess you support the socialists and anarchists?

They did such a good job in Egypt.


So much more freedom they now have.

Amen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! as on of those Union lineman, i can tell you one thing in the last year i have left my home to travel to Missouri twice, Alabama, Mississippi, and Illinois. All in an effort to restore power that was time i spent away from my family i worked through holidays, family get together's, and many other events in my life. But my union has never helped this country out one lick, let me tell ya
. It's very easy to bash a union, I will admit that before i joined my union i was every bit as guilty of doing it myself. I am now Union for life and would have it no other way.






Thank you and good day/night depending on your location in this universe.

You so fond of unions?

UNION OF SOVIET SOCIALIST REPUBLICS.

In the early days the unions were good and necessary.


www.theblaze.com... -palestine-and-libya/

You wonderful unions are communist sympathizers at the top and ambivalent sheep (at best) at the bottom.

Excellent news! The more the merrier down there regardless of what is said about unions, hopefully it draws the necessary coverage to spread this wild fire!

I hope this fire gets enough wind behind it to carry just a single spark across to Australia and ignite the (deep) pools of fuel that are laid across this magnificent sunburnt nation.

After people told me my predictions would not happen, they have started to become true.

Link 1: Secton31 warns 'Occupy Wall Street' was a Progressive Democrat movement.

Link 2: Section31 warns everyone about MSNBC's and Democrat media support for Occupy Wall Street.

Link 3: Section31 predicts Union take over of 'Occupy Wall Street' movement.

Link 4: Section31 warns possible hijack of Occupy Wall Street by Democrat Party, so Obama can win the 2012 Election.

Link 5: Section31 warns about the group being turned into a Civil Rights Movement for Progressive Democrats.

I am king!



'Occupy Wall Street' get ready to sing "Obama the Beautiful!"



You have just been hijacked!



Anonymous is apart of this group. They are Democrats! They support unions.
