Shut the ports down. Unfortunately, we need to have the tantruming children expose their nature so enough Americans see the real threat to themselves...their own government.

What does this have to do with the government? It's a private sector union negotiating with ite private sector employers.

Because no one knows about this. But they will if the ports shut down. The American people need to awake up. The only way they will wake up is if they are affected by this.
It's not about jobs. It's not about safety. It's not about improving dockworkers' living standards. The looming, long-planned East and Gulf Coast port strikes are about protecting Big Labor's archaic work practices and corrupt waterfront rackets.

Are you ready for a fiscal cliff? The union bosses of an estimated 14,500 workers at 15 ports are preparing to send the economy plunging back into recession over productivity and efficiency rules changes. You read that right. Much more on that in a moment. But first, here's what's at stake.
