Union Rally Turns St. Louis Into AstroTurf City.

St Louis Unions hold a HEAVILY astro-turfed rally. Complete with fake "home-made" signs and bussed in protesters.

I had so much bus footage I had to speed it up, and adding the "Benny Hill Theme" to any sped up piece of video is ALWAYS funny.

  2. Umm...buses were local, but who wants to park downtown? Nobody is gonna travel far in a school bus!

  3. As I participated in this event I had a very hollow feeling that my future was not really going as planned. Union Man/Lars

  4. I would like to know if they get union wages and if they follow child labor laws. A majority of these 'good' folk are actually at work - they are 'bussed-in professional protesters,' most from out of the area.

  5. I wonder who paid for the use of those public school busses? Oh right...taxpayers as usual.

  6. No mention of the event name, was it the "Right To Work" town hall in St. Charles? I couldn't make it (working taxpayer) and am curious for a report. BTW, that Spider Rich tune always cracks me up, I think that's Boots Randolph on the sax.

  7. Are taxpayers paying for those buses to pick up protesters and take them home?

  8. Surprised that this "herd of sheep" could find the right bus back to the trailer park.

  10. Well done, funny but infuriating. We're paying for the school buses!

    Try using this one if the event features drum circles:

  13. I gotta say though, I do like the bus idea... maybe Mr. S can arrange something for us next time.

    But of course he'd have the style sense to get Party Buses, not school buses.

    Dorks.
