Federalize them, then fire them all

60,000 union thugs are holding the economy of 305,000,000 Americans hostage to their greed.

Nice...I'm sure it's a Federal crime to interfere with railroad traffic- if WE did it.

But if the THUGS at the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen, the Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employees and the American Train Dispatchers Association do it, all they get is more union bennies paid by the working class and the 99% who are against union corporate greed.


  1. When you say "federalize", do you mean like GM and Chrysler? Can't get behind that.

    Throwing the union leaders in the slam and fining them twice their annual salaries per day until the strike is ended would be about right. And I don't mean a country-club prison - let's reopen Alcatraz just for them.

  2. PATCO members already worked for the FAA. The train union members still work for private corporations, far as I know.

    While I would love to see these big unions removed from political power, I don't think letting the feds take over those companies would work out. Look at Amtrak.
