    The party of freedom strikes again, and this has to do with the Citizen United..

    Three Republican commissioners contend that the United Public Workers union (UPW) was within its legal right to require employees to “provide support for Hawaii Fist Congressional District candidate Colleen Hanabusa’s candidacy in a special congressional election on May 22, 2010.” The case stemmed from a complaint when two employees alleged that they were fired after refusing “to comply with a UPW request to sign-wave, phone bank, canvass, and contribute to Hanabusa’s campaign.” The GOP commissioners found that current law and regulations do not prohibit employers from requiring participation.

    Citizens united indeed. United against their will by their unions or corporations. I can't wait until workers have to go to court because both the union and the corporation want them to wave signs on the same day.

    I'd love to go out there with a sign that says "XYZ Local 123 for (DEM CANDIDATE)/XYZ Corporation for (REP CANDIDATE)" on one side, and "Brought to you by Citizens United" on the other.

    It's an open and shut case. Union/mgmt 101: It's illegal.

    I part company with that crap, I would Carry A Sign Saying "F-ck All Politicians"

    I would put a sign in my yard saying "POLITICIANS KISS MY WHITE IRISH ASS YOU FILTHY WORM INFESTED VERMIN SWINE BASTARD RAT BASTARDS

    I would erect another sing on the side of my house saying "Castrate And Destroy All Politicians Bowels"
    God willing they will destroy their own filthy bowels and feet.

    Compelling people to contribute or campaign is wrong whether it is done by Unions or Management to benefit pubs or dems.

    So you are saying that whenever a democrat says or does something that represents the whole democratic party?

    Is this the official party platform, or is it just a couple guys who happen to have "R's" after their names and you're trying to take their statements and assign those exact same viewpoints to anyone and everyone who happens to be right of the political spectrum?
