LA Union Members Will Travel To Arizona To Protest

Hey, I’m just wondering: shouldn’t they kind be, you know, working on Thursday?

As a judge weighs whether to halt Arizona’s controversial immigration law, hundreds of Los Angeles union members and activists are planning a bus caravan to Phoenix on Thursday — the day the law is set to take effect.

More than 550 people plan to ride on 11 buses to Arizona to stage a protest and launch a partnership with Arizona groups to boost voter registration. During the one-day trip, sponsored by the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, participants will meet with Phoenix Police Chief Jack Harris, march to the state Capitol and hold a vigil. The participants represent 32 unions.

Since the participants include the SEIU, as Michelle Malkin points out, anyone want to lay a bet that violence ensues?

The caravan is just one of many activities planned Thursday. Immigration activists have declared it a “national day of action,” with events planned in several cities to protest implementation of the Arizona law. They include a march across the Brooklyn Bridge in New York, a vigil outside a detention center in Georgia and a unity event in Chicago featuring faith, community and political leaders, along with 200 children. Chicago leaders also plan to deliver 2,000 letters to Chicago Cubs owner Tom Ricketts asking him to move the baseball team’s spring training from Arizona to Florida.

Maybe they should all get to work, instead. On the other hand, they all typically disappear in the afternoon, right before the second shift at fast food restaurants.

I find it highly interesting that the union fools are going to spend time trying to register voters. Rather exposes the true agenda of these open-borders pro-illegals people: they figure if they register enough people (how many will be registered illegally?) they will dominate elections. Rule of law? Scr*w the rule of law. Kinda like the way their elected officials in the Democrat party act.

Meanwhile, isn’t it utterly fantastic that these union hacks will be blowing off their tax-payer funded government jobs on Thursday?

    I would vote for electric cars. In fact their are 2 electric cars coming online this year. Chevy’s volt which is a form of a hybrid which will run for 40 miles before the gasoline engine kicks in. This will actually be great for people running to the store etc.

    Secondly the leaf is coming out this year. An all electric car that boasts 100 miles on a charge. These are both steps in the right direction.

    Capitalism and The American spirit at work. If people buy them…….IF…..then you can bet they will be making them by the boatload as Americans sick and tired of commodities traders playing with oil prices will find a way to buy an electric car.

    If theres a buck to be made you can bet business will make a buck unless this President outlaws making a profit next.

    only hippies and AGW swallowing Al Gore lovers want electric cars. Why you probably have a commie flag in your bedroom

    “Capitalism and the American spirit” does not require that taxpayers pay 20% of the cost of the vehicles. The Volt and the Leaf both come with a $7500 rebate from the Federal government. The first 4400 people that buy the Volt will be eligible for an upgraded charging station. The station, including installation, is paid for by the government and will cost $1000 – $2000.

    In California, buying a Volt makes you eligible for an additional $5000 rebate.

    The kicker on the deal is that the claims for the cars are inaccurate.

    I somehow don’t think that taxpayer funding of a product that doesn’t work as advertised is “capitalism and the American spirit.”

    Your opinion may vary.

    Can the AZ cops stop them at the border and demand papers?

    Electric Care are actually less efficient than conventional vehicles. The energy it takes to generate the electricity in either a coal fired power plant or an oil burning facility is less thermodynamically efficient, due to the size of the combustor and heat losses than a gasoline engine.
    So the net effect of all those electric vehicles is actually a energy loser.

  6. Trish says:

    Batteries anyone? These electric cars will not be “eternal” and their batteries are the size of well, a car. Or nearly so. Can’t wait to see what environmentalists will do when there needs to be a dead giant battery dump.
    I am very annoyed that my tax $$ are being thrown at people who can afford such an expensive vehicle.(even with the incentive)
    I also have to ask, where DO these folks think the electricity to charge them comes from? Straight from Al Gore’s a$$?

    Otherwise, I say go ahead and buy the new toys, and one day when they grow up- perhaps I will too. But I won’t expect hard working Americans to subsidize my ride.

    Ok all jokes aside. I have a few questions.

    The City of Los Angeles is boycotting Arizona. Therefore

    1). Where are these people going to eat, when they get within the borders of Arizona?
    2). Where are these people going to get something to drink. Hey, it’s hot there, wouldn’t they want some nice ice cold water?
    3). The bus is going to have to refuel. So, where will they get fuel?

    If you ask me – these people are idiots, and don’t think things all the way through.
