Video clip of the day

Here's some more of that new civility everyone is talking about...

Missourians curious as to what their higher education tax dollars are teaching the kids these day? How about a little union thug tactics 101?

Courtesy Big Government, professors Judy Ancel and David Giljam give instructions on intimidation, fear and industrial sabotage in the context of labor negotiations in a jointly-taught online course at University of Missouri- St. Louis and the University of Missouri - Kansas City.

What blows us away as we cannot wrap our head around but how does equipment lying idle or plant stoppages help the union worker in the long run? It is the revenue generated by the business that pays the salaries and benefits of the workers. If the plant is idled by sabotage or even the implied threat of sabotage then where is the revenue that will cover the new concessions that the union is seeking?

And better yet, how about when those union members start getting laid off because their company has been passed by the competition because of work stoppages and idle plant time?

But, nope... intimidation tactics, inciting riots, animal cruelty and destroying police cars are one big laugh-riot to these ass-hats.

Our tax dollars at work.
