Skip to comments.Special Report: The Right to Work demonstrations in Lansing
Posted on 12/17/2012 7:11:19 AM PST by jenk
When we first arrived at the Capitol, it was a little after 8am. As we entered the Capitol building, college students and teachers were already chanting and stomping on all floors of the rotunda. When we reached the top of the stairs, a man in a yellow vest told me to keep moving, dont block the walkway, so I obeyed. One of the guys with me, Rich, told me that the people in the neon yellow and orange security vests are union marshals, and have no authority at all. They control the crowds on behalf of the unions. I would observe their tactics the rest of the day.
Because the Americans For Prosperity tent was the only shelter, food and rest area on the lawn, amidst thousands of angry union members, it became a magnet for union bully tactics. Union captains and marshals are paid by the unions to encourage intimidation while seemingly providing security for the masses. With a massive police force protecting the Capitol, these paid security teams as well as the Michigan Peace Team roamed the lawn. The Michigan Peace Team is a group of people who advocate non-violence, but are less effective than the security teams.

Cheese with that?
Thanks for the report, I read the whole thing.
Ask the guy with the whine.
Please. It seems to me that the high-pitched mewling we hear is coming from your direction.
It wasn't posted, it was excerpted needlessly.
And you didn't read it here.
So why not post the whole thing here?
Free Republic gets many times the page views than your little blog.
Unless it is actually hits you are after...
Yes I did but I didn't really......I'm merely enabling your addiction for attention.
Do search for Users Humblegunner. If you cant figure it out, I’ll give you explicit directions. Out of the first 30 posts, 16 are specifically him whining about people excerpting. Yup whiny lil bitch if I ever saw one and it aint me honey. Run along now
Bill Clinton and Anthony Wiener tried to make that crap play.
Watch your language, dear.
Thanks for the ping, ‘creek. OUTSTANDING report and OUTSTANDING analysis and OUTSTANDING activism, jenk! Everything about you is OUTSTANDING at “the mob” event.
FReepers at their finest BUMP! You deserve some award (yet to be named or given) again THIS year.
MUST APPRECIATE BUMP!
As did I. Thanks for your work, 'gunner.
Another BUMP for EXTRAORDINARY reporting, analysis and activism! FReeper putting it on the line BUMP!
BUMP for an EXTRAORDINARY report from a FReeper!
BUMP for an EXTRAORDINARY analysis from a FReeper!
BUMP for an EXTRAORDINARY activism from a FReeper!
Jenk, FABULOUS work! Above and beyond the call of duty.
I wrote this.
I posted it at Scoop’s site.
Then I posted it on my site.
Then a nice freeper asked if I would post it here.
I was working, so I excerpted.
Hits on a blog do not equal money unless you have ads.
I do not have ads on my site because I don’t want them.
You bitch about this every damn time I post something, say the same thing, and you have no idea what you are talking about.
You are ignorant.
I’ve had it with you and your bitching.
What is your personal interest in whether Free Republic gets my original source material? Hmm?
If you don’t want to know anything, don’t ever click a link.
I don’t need hits on my site, nor does Scoop need them on his. There is such a thing as sharing.
Stop trying to upset fellow freepers because you want all material posted here.
If there was a stipulation that all information should be posted here in its entirety, there would not be an “Excerpt” box.
If there was no reason for bloggers to post things here there would be no “Bloggers” category.
If there was a reason for you to harass me these past four years other than mental stress, tell me, because I’m seriously considering never coming back because of ignorant bitchers like you.
For what reason do you excerpt your material?
You wrote it, you can post it in full.
It’s really not that difficult to grasp.
Unless you are a blogpimp.
