Hot dog guy puts union goons to shame

More than a journalist and some political activists got hurt when they went up against "the union" in Lansing, MI on 12/11/2012.

A local hot dog guy was also among the targets. Here is his story:


His wife guesses that he lost $500 worth of equipment, plus all the hot dogs, ketchup, mustard, relish, and whatever else you can put on a hot dog. All because a bunch of goons wanted to make a point.

Well, the locals in Lansing must have felt brought up short when word got around. It's one thing when you think the only ones who got hurt are the hired underlings of a couple of rich guys who have more money than compassion. It's quite another when someone you know turns out to be among the targets. The goons (half of whom came from out-of-State) never thought the hot dog guy's regular customers would miss him, much less care what happened to him.

They were wrong.

Someone set up a site to raise money to replace what he lost. Her first goal: $2000. Donors gave twice that within hours. So she raised the goal to $5000. At the time of posting, she has now raised $29,000. And the money is still pouring in, in amounts varying from $5 to $100.

There is the shame of those goons: when total strangers step up to replace what that guy lost, many times over.

And by the way, it's also the way anyone can help.

    And shame on those who trashed this guy's business, and then told him he was on the wrong side of their war, when he was not in any sense of the word a combatant in that war.

    That said, he definitely never expected this result. Anyone *might* have been able to predict it. Sometimes you don't know how special a guy is to you until someone threatens to take him away from you for good.

    All of the Unions need to fall on there swords and go away. Unions were good at one time but now they are all about themself and not the people who they are for.

    Organized negotiations is one thing, but criminal assault and destruction of private property is quit another.

    The real shame is that the criminals in question may have just been following instructions, we'll never know. And the criminal, willfull ignorance of the MSM in refusing to recognize and report all sides of a story underscore the decline of Media relavance.

    kinda what unions and democrat socialists do to alot of private business, milk it for all its worthy, demand only more and more from the business owner and when they have sucked it dry and left it an empty husk and watch the Union Leadership (paid for by union dues) walk away with their 6 figure jobs, while the local works sit unemployeed with their finger up their ass wondering what happened I used to have a job.

    WTF. We have the facists in Lansing voting in to make this a right to work state and the damn pee party puts up a tent and sell hot dogs they ship people from out of state on buses to make a circus out of other people's pain. I feel sorry for this man but this was wrong. Any one who comes to work at my agency and desides to be scab labor will never have my friendship or respect. I have nothing to do with scabs. I do hope my other brothers and sisters treat them the same.

    Unions are the facist. When I was growing up, my Grandfather was a Teamster. He'd come home and tell us stories about Teamster members who spoke out against the union and their rigs were shot up.

    After 25 years of living in Flint, MI, I've seen the damage the unions do first hand. In one case, the company was not allowed to fire a man after he brought a bomb to work and blew up a press. I've seen GM want to hire extra shifts to increase production, but the UAW told them, "No", you have to give the work as overtime (time and a half) to current employees.

    You know it's a matter of what you consider hate. I think the pee party is pretty hateful. I for one would fight to have the illegals sent back because they are taking jobs from Americans and they are being exploited. Notice the GOP is back on the bandwagon to let them stay

    Well, the nation's founders were in favor of a 'classless' society and today's unions certainly seem to be leading the way - these scum are about as classless as they come. In fact, they could be described as the NCAA - No Class At All!

    Every one of the thugs involved that can be identified from videos/photos needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    Obama will personally pat each goon on the back, I imagine. Probably invite them to the WH for dinner. If it were up to me, each one of those goons would be cooling their heels in jail over the holidays, if not longer.

    I don't know. If this is true good for him. But Fox has a habit of making bogus claims about Michigan unions 'assaulting' people. Case in point:
