Minutes before Michigan Governor Snyder signed the 'Right-To-Work' bill into law...
... Teamsters head Jimmy Hoffa appeared on CNN, as seen in the clip below, warning that:
...as the bill to weaken unions' power is passed. If Hoffa is right, look for Michigan GDP to soar: after all it is one of the more Keynesian states in the union.
Via AP: Michigan Gov. Snyder signs right-to-work bills
LANSING, Mich. (AP) Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has signed right-to-work legislation,

Search didn’t turn up Hoffa keywords or title. FYI. BLOAT.
Great ... let them secede!
Homeland Security should be notified and these guys promoting civil war, arrested.
CW II Ping.
Well Jimmy....Threats just aren’t good enough anymore.
Cleaning up your mess will lead to higher employment.
Bring it on, OBAMAMAFIA!
Unions have a CIVIL RIGHT to enslave non-union members.
Jimmy Hoffa.,, Jimmy Hoffa, are you freaking serious?, he’s the guy you have to trot out to defend unions?.,, in a world that made any kind of sense, that would be hilarious., but I guess in the world as it is now, where right is wrong, evil is good, work is punished and being a slack pos is admirable, I suppose it does make sense to have the son of union / mafia goon brought out to extoll the virtues of unions.
He has the power of Obama behind him, don’t forget. Unions elevated the middle class, he told us this week.
Who are they going to war with? People who don’t show up cause they don’t sign up?
Like Snyder said, if they return value to workers for belonging, then the workers will belong. It’s now a free choice.
If signing up for AAA is valuable to a traveler, then they’ll sign up and keep it. If it isn’t, they either won’t sign up or they won’t keep it.
Citizens don’t need the government requiring folks to sign up for AAA’s invisible service.
Bring it, Obamaholes.
Watching these fat, entitled union thugs scream, shout and throw punches has reminded me once again why I will never buy a Detroit-made automobile
...We're going to have a civil war,"
I have heard that exact quote or/and something very similar from various left wing media sources since the election. Why?
Is it the "revenge," 0bama was talking about during the campaign? Is it the class warfare he and his campaign campaigned upon?
Why all of the hostile rhetoric? They won, didn't they?
There is a bad moon arising. Be ready, check your stores, commo and logistics. You won't have time later.
Where’s your daddy, Jimbo?
Oh boy,Civil War!Sign me up for the run-and-gun portion of the program.
Too little, too late. Even with right to work, the home of the UAW is too entrenched in the union mantra. And it’s not the private sector unions they have to worry about, it’s to public sector ones. The largest employer in the state of Michigan, is the State of Michigan. Expect all of the public sector employees to turn on their own government and residents.
We already have a civil war. It’s just a cold war right now.
The state of Michigan will need to also re-configure its relationship with the public sector unions. They are the true cancer.
Labor unions already are causing a war on the economy:
Economic effects of labor unions :
1) cause or perpetuate unemployment
2) cause artificial inequalities in wage rates if confined to isolated industries
3) combat rise in real wages in combating rise in productivity of labor
4) frustrate the law of comparative advantage and prevent the less able from outcompeting the more able
5) the greater the extent of wage increases achieved by labor unions, the more severe become the effects of minimum-wage laws
6) impair capital accumulation by reducing productivity of capital goods
7) monopolize the market against the less able and the disadvantaged
8) prevent increase in money and spending from increasing employment
9) promote racial discrimination
10) reduce average real wage rates by causing unemployment and a lower productivity of labor
11) reduce fraction of worlds money supply circulation in United States
12) responsible for inability of American industries to compete against foreign competitors
13) unemployment caused by labor unions worsens consequences of job loss
14) wage demands of labor unions can lead to more raid increases in quantity of fiat money if government seeks to avoid resulting unemployment by this means
If I recall correctly, Hoffa isn’t exactly Mr Popular even with his union’s own members. Something about a stolen union election.
Why would Homeland Security care? Most are probably on the take from the unions.
Why am I having trouble imagining a bunch of middle-aged first grade teachers lobbing mortars and charging a defended perimeter?
I happen to be a customer of Nissan thank to them..
Who’s your daddy Jimmy?
Bleeding Kansas-Bleeding Michigan.
It's coming, please prepare.
Isn’t this the very reason why we have the NDAA?? Why aren’t these people cooling off in GITMO?? Maybe Michigan should adopt the NDAA as STATE LAW and imprison the whole bunch indefinitely. and of course they would be prevented from confirming or denying any such action as outlined in the NDAA.
Good for the Goose, good for the Gander
Exactly.My last UAW made product was a 1990 Olds.Since then,nothing but Japanese and German.Never again will a vehicle made with UAW labor darken my driveway.I'll walk first!
Jimmy Jr needs to spend some time with daddy.
I would think it would be hard to find teamsters members going on the record to speak negatively about current union management: for the simple reason that my employer might not be able to fire me, but Hoffa can. This is why secret ballots and stuff are important.
Aren't those two countries responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans just over 65 years ago?
Actions speak louder than words, Jimmy.
Yep! Me too!
I am on my third Titan and wife just got a Rogue in July!!
I loved my Nissans, but then they got bought by Renault. It broke my heart.
We'll ambush 'em while they're on their lunch hour, getting drunk and stoned.
YOUTUBE SING ALONG - Look for the Union Goon Squad
“We already have a civil war. Its just a cold war right now.”
Post of the month.
What we are going to see is Obama working to undermine this, either via Eric Holder or by again abusing EO’s.
yea, but we killed a hell of a lot more of them than they did of us, don't sell us short, we invented nukes, we can kill as well as anybody.
Hey Jimmy, bring it punk. Until then go hang out with your father.
I hope so. There are a helluva lot more of them, American haters, than there are Americans.
I should have went with Nissan sooner... If my Sentra keeps up I’m going to be keep on buying Nissan cars or suv’s from now on.
Here is the thing.. The war is over and we won.. I don’t see the Krauts and the Japanese being a threat again anytime soon.
Yep, the producers versus the moochers. The moochers don't like it, not one bit, when their hands get swatted away from other people's pockets. When the moochers of the Democrat party base start bringing guns to get their stinking paws into other people's pockets, we better be prepared with guns to shoot those greedy stinking paws away. Voila! A "hot" war.
