Why arent picketers loitering?
    #2085639 - 11/09/03 02:05 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

70,000 people in Southern California now stand in front of 890 private property stores with signs disrupting business.

So why arent these people breaking the law? For the most part picketers really just stand around, looking sad. Theirs usually a table set up where many of them sit and play cards while they hand out water.

Soo what makes them any different than any other group of people who disrupt business by blocking entrances and harassing customers by passing out propaganda literature and chanting nonsense?

California Grocery workers strike..

Tens of thousands of people stand in front of the doors at local grocery stores, blocking the entrance to customers, harassing them, giving rude looks and passing out propaganda literature but for some reason this is legal....

Why?

I went to a Von's recently(with spud and forty) and talked with some of the picketers. They're by no means blocking the entrance. In this case they were just asking the customers to shop at the Stater Bros. store across the street. They know they can't legally do anything to stop the customers from entering. They just ask them nicely to shop elsewhere.

Because, Unions are good endeavors.

They band together the common man and work as his voice.

It's all going to shit. Soon striking will be the least of our problems.

Support local unions.

Rah!

Ah, the true colors come out. The derogatory term 'scab' to refer to someone who may be seeking a better job and wanting to feed his family, the expressed sentiment to aggress against your fellow man in a most violent way, the expressed desire to use intimidation and violence to obtain your goals. Do you consider yourself a liberal?


--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

Why not just kill em all? After all, fighting for a better life for your wife and kids as opposed to lining the pockets of rich people is against the law isn't it?

before this strike, I wasn't even aware that grocers were unionized. is this true in other parts of the country as well? I think it's kinda ridiculous, checkout clerks making $25/hour and getting full benefits. I sympathize with them but don't these people know that they're expendable? they have almost zero bargaining power, I think they're gonna be out on the picket lines for awhile.

If you have ever worked at a win-dixie as soon as you apply they ask you to join a union. At least the ones where i used to live.

That is odd that they are allowed onto the private property. Every picket line that I have participated in we had to stand across the street on public property. Otherwise:

Yes it is a PC term for thug, but there are other euphemisms used by the PC crowd as well.
