    I had the best day yesterday at the Teamster Boot Camp in Orange County California. I got to meet the face...the man....the OG of the Teamster Mr Jim Hoffa and it was so cool. Got to take pictures with him and talk about UPS he is a real cool dude...Anyone else on the Brown Cafe met him ????

    I have met him outside our Hub once in the parking lot. He was running for office, I didn't vote for him, thats the only time he shows up around here. I saw Tom L a couple of days later in the same spot........

    Screw you...Jim Hoffa has given our union directly into the control of UPS, the very people he is supposed to represent us with. I have seen a lot of people that are star struck and you fit the bill.
    HOFFA IS A SELL OUT!

    You're kidding me, right???

    Calling names builds creditability? "Dick...LAME"

    The Teamsters have a legacy of being crooks...May be wrong and undeserved, but it is what it is......I met Wayne Newton once but I don't worship him as an "Entertainment God". He's just a person in a position; just like Jim Hoffa.......

    I don't think Wayne Newton had control of our pension fund. I could be wrong.

    I resent your comment. I toil every day for my fellow teamsters. I repreresent them to the best of my ability and always have their best interest at heart being a steward. As for my opinion of Hoffa the jury is still out, but I respect others opinions and take their past experiences into consideration. I do not call them names because their feelings are contrary to my own.

    He may as well have control.

    Ya see, this is why I like Stewie so much.

    Did he thank you for your union dues? Did he tell you about how he is giving up your free healthcare?
