    Default Union calls for fed workers to ‘fight back’ against shutdown

    And I could not agree more!!!

    The International Federation of Professional & Technical Engineers (IFPTE) “urges all Federal workers to join with our Sisters and Brothers throughout the labor community in fighting back. Since the House of Representatives is kicking you out the door, you should take to the streets, let your voices be heard, and remind them that ultimately it is you who will decide their fate, not the other way around,” said Gregory Junemann, the union president.
    Junemann placed the blame for the shutdown squarely on House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and his Republican caucus. Junemann said workers can “fight back by participating in informational pickets” at federal facilities.

    “IFPTE is horrified by the House Leadership’s decision to jeopardize American prosperity in favor of making an empty partisan political point. This House, led by Speaker Boehner and the tea-party caucus, is a direct threat to the livelihood of millions of American workers and their families,” Junemann said in a statement.

    More like Obama won't negotiate on a compromise.

    Compromise is a two way street.

    These are Obama's own words. This is Obama's ShutDown. He picks and chooses who will suffer.

    That's your view. The public knows that it is the republican radical right ( tea party ) that has done this.
    Even your god, Ted Cruz has said he wants to shut down the government.

    Ted Cruz faced a barrage of hostile questions Wednesday from angry GOP senators, who lashed the Texas tea party freshman for helping prompt a government shutdown crisis without a strategy to end it.

    Sounds like the republicans wanted this.

    The Public may not see them as Radical as you and the lefty's say.

    When you see a TeaParty Rally you seen normal middle class people that show up. They are not the lefty nutjobs that show that are funded and bused in as with all liberal groups.
    I saw the article TeaParty dwindling but they are normal people that have not given in on their ideals but are simply at home living the lives.

    Yea the Koch Brothers maybe funding, but they do not control the people. Perhaps they are trying to gain some influence from keeping the people from rebelling against them (Corperation influence)

    TeaParty has to fight the Democrats and Established Republicans.

    Nut jobs ... wouldn't that describe those that lean to far to one side ... or the other.
    The tea party would fit that description.

    Koch brothers ... any working class person that sides with those pukes doesn't understand what they want to do with your right and liberties.

    As for that tea party rally, I see the same extremists there, but with different clothing, as any other rally.

    U.S. support for the Tea Party is at a low ebb at a time when key issues of concern for the movement -- funding for the Affordable Care Act and raising the U.S. debt ceiling -- are focal points in Washington, with Tea Party-backed Sen. Ted Cruz prominently fighting both policies. The discomfort he has created in the Republican caucus is merely emblematic of the ambivalence national Republicans feel toward the movement. Although few Republicans outright oppose the Tea Party, far more are neutral toward it than support it.
    So much for the support of the radical tea party movement.
    Keep fighting, your support from the regular public is fleeing every day.


    Tea Party Support Dwindles to Near-Record Low

    What a great statement.

    So, with your comment we can take it to mean that Obama is effective too.
