The communist run unions that infest America in 2011 should be and must be stopped. They have manipulated states across the country and the Democrats in Congress and the Senate and this President USE them to for hundreds of millions of dollars in campaign funds. I expect the Republican President who will be elected in 2012 to immediately with the strike of a pen to stop all federal employees from unionizing. President Kennedy started it with just his signature and it can be stopped the same way. It is a benefit to all Americans that this type of communist activity stop. For those who do not believe it is that serious, just look up unions and communism, they use the word “workers” because it is the communist term for employees, they are despicable.
What the teachers unions in particular state to state do to our children in the name of enriching themselves is evil, pure and simple and it must be stopped. If you are not in a right to work state and even the state unions in those states, you must go and put the de-unionization of your state on the ballot, and educate your citizens to the horror that are the modern day unions When They Find Out How Evil They Are, They Will Throw The Bums Out
The manual states that the “MEA … supports and defends its members who engage in a strike.” It also says that not all job actions are strikes. It offers advice on how to pull off “Work-To-Rule” actions where employees refuse to do anything outside of what is included in their contract.
“Understand that a local is limited only by its collective imagination when it comes to specific work-to-rule actions,” the manual states. “If you carefully examine your contract you will probably find a number of work-to-rule opportunities. Keep in mind, however, that you don’t want to violate the contract or past practice; you want to adhere to it … exactly!”
Doug Pratt, spokesman for the MEA, didn’t respond to an email seeking comment.
One section of the manual appears to quote almost verbatim Saul Alinksy’s “Rules For Radicals” — a handbook for community organizing. Alinsky’s book includes: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”
The MEA manual states: “Pick a target—personalize—and polarize the opposition.”
The manual also emphasizes using children when bargaining.
“In terms of a bargaining message, the public responds most positively when we talk about children, quality in the classroom and the future,” the MEA manual states. “There may come a time when it’s appropriate to talk about money and benefits, but lay the groundwork first.”
The manual even suggests one slogan that it claims has worked for other locals: “It’s not about dollars and cents; it’s about our children.”
We actually know it is all about their bottom line, how much money they can steal from those who make less, and pay more for their benefits. They are modern day thieves and they use your children as weapons, lets stop them.
