    I agree. Nothing like a gang or mob influence to make someone feel larger then themselves.

    This is America, thus you can protest all you like. Yet in a clean, professional and non-violent manner. As well people can protest that protest all they wish. I would blame the police there for not putting more space between them both.

    The crowd often adds a large something to the frey. It would be better to sit back and just watch it unfold from your desktop as the world is set on fire.

    Look at the video, rod.
    Little fat bald guy got into the skinny guys face first.
    Skinny guy stood still, then was pushed back,

    Skinny just came back to his original space.
    Baldy was a little bully with a bullhorn, backed up with some big friends.
    Skinny did look wimpy, with his wrist bandage act.
    Baldy acted like a small man and he was the guilty party.

    Looked like a skin head rally to me. I guess emotions can run high at this sort of thing, but if you're out there representing the Teamsters, you have to remember you're representing the collective. Thanks to this nimrod for making us look like a bunch of :censored2:s.

    I am not sure how close you all watched this video, but as the tea party people are walking away, look at them a LITTLE MORE CLOSELY.

    A few of them extend the Finger/Bird/Number 1 to the teamsters near the guy with the bullhorn, in addition, if you watch the mouths of the tea party people walking, you can see them mouthing the F word to the crowd of union members.

    Now, not that its enough to get violent, but in a crowd of hostile feelings, what were the tea party people thinking would happen?

    Its easy to shout obsentities while being escorted away from a hostile crowd with police on horseback, and it can be a little empowering, but the teamsters involved are more than willing to spend a couple hours in jail to make a point. That's why we pay lawyers at the local.

    Have spark, will flame.

    Indeed, the little guy went a little far shoving the guy, but the guy was a part of the group shouting obsentities and tossing out the finger.

    By the way, Its funny to see someone pull this video off Glenn Becks moronic site. Made me laugh.

    I'd bet those other protesters were limited to the side walk, not the street. The teamster guy was obviously walking towards that person, it was avoidable. Love how people throw the fascist line around, especially people in the union protests.

    If someone yells names, then you can yell names back. 'Little man' took it a step further and that's where he was wrong!!

    I listen to Beck on the way home from work, I like the message he brings. But I'm not one to trust anyone. I look through the site only to see news as it breaks. A lot the time news sites or programs never break those types of events. Anyone see that video on the news? Watch that site and compare that news to what is in the mainsteam. You'll find theres a lot left out of the main stream.
