Here are my Top Three Dislikes: I don't like Big Government. I don't like Big Business. I don't like Big Labor.
The bigger they get, the smaller individual liberty becomes.
That said, I strongly dislike how hundreds of SEIU protesters besieged a Bank of America attorney's home. Remember what I said about not liking Big Business, I really don't like Bank of America.
My dislike, strong as it is, respects private property and opponent's families.
Hearing that man's teen age son was cowering scared inside his own house reminded me of Black families facing the Klan years ago.
I used to support Big Labor and still back workers to the hilt. It's the socialist strong arm tactics I find objectionable. Just like I oppose capitalist con men robbing zip codes like mine for generations.
I don't advocate mob tactics like these. Not with our peoples history as targets of private goon squads and state sanctioned terror in the form of racist police.
I also by necessity oppose right wing nuts who stalk Congressmen and bully liberals, Muslims, minorities and anyone else they hate!
Back to the Bank of America case. Since alot of police officers are union members that might explain their conspicuous absence at this scene.
Am I defending fat cats? Not even remotely. But I am defending private property rights.
Otherwise if you're a Black civil rights activist it's okay to bus a few hundred skin heads outside your house. How would any Black person feel facing that where he lives.
One consolation is in zip codes like mine imported racists would get a more aggressive response than most suburbs would muster!
Big Labor is just one more callous collective to guard against. Eventually they may show up at the wrong address and shots could be fired. People, even cheating corporate pigs, have the civil right of residential safety.
When confrontation is the preferred method of redress it tells you just how bad things have become. What I don't want on TV are union protesters and specially hired paramilitary security fighting outside corporate locations or executives houses.
That's where these intimidation tactics can lead. Each side escalating until somebody gets hurt.
If unions can do this imagine what happens when corporations turn retired law enforcement and ex military loose on unionists? This has happened before in American history and we ignore deadly lessons at our national peril.
Respect each others property or prepare for chaos the likes of which we haven't seen since Katrina; the Rodney King Riots or unrest following Dr. King's assassination.
Chaos changes nothing! The same problems remain or get worse! That's why protesting on peoples property is wrong!
