    From the comments:

    And the typical union response:

    Yeah, really feeling sorry for those poor picketers. You wanted Obama, you wanted health care, pay up.

    Oh hey, video of picketers blocking trucks for longer than the "20 seconds" they claim and trying to pick fights. Imagine that.

    Well I was in a union and if a truck, crossed a picket line I was on, I am a mechanic, and I would have to help the trucker know the bad things that happen when a candle is used, in a proper manner.

    You'd have to know the bad things that would happen when you got caught on my property by me and all the other "scabs" that live there.

    The union is nothing more than a socialist movement. It allows crappy workers to be promoted and rise amoung thier ranks. Most good workers will leave a union environment to excel outside the union jobs. Unions, Welfare, they are one in the same protecting and providing for the laziest people in society.

    Being a scab is the lowest form of scum. It is only one step above calling someone a goof. My last picket line was in Alberta when the right-wing Government gave a bunch of money to Peter Pocklington to break the unions, that would be Gainers, and with the police beat up on a group of old workers. Later when we were on strike and we requested the media to come and bring there police friends to our picket line, and we promised we had about 20 disabled workers, in the mix they would not come. COWARDS, when you cross a picket line you are costing someone money, and they will never forget, and any time something goes wrong with a vehicle you will never know. Pay back it a _____. If the union movement is such a socialist movement, what are associations of business, doctors, lawyers, accountants, geologists. Name one and every professional group has a union called another name. I am willing to bet their is an association of companies that specialise in how to break a union, and professional Scabs. Just a thought!

    For those that don't realize, every man, woman, and child that is not in a union is a "scab" to these people. A scab is considered less than human, therefore laws meant to protect people don't apply to scabs in their minds. And then they wonder why the cops don't care to protect them.

    Pray tell how would you use a candle? Cause I am sure a few of us scabs can find a place to poke the candle also....
    I also see on another post you say things happen to vehicles and you never know when or what it will be..... Things happen.

    You know looking at the video posted that shows the pickets pulling on the truck mirrors, at that point I would move forward and cross.

    I am orignally from the UK, I remember the coal miners strike there, pickets trying not to let trucks cross, truckers crossing at speed, get out of my way or you will be run over, They were told the same thing u can block the street for so long, but in the UK your time was up and they crossed if you moved of not, your choice period.:biggrin_25524:
