This ad was in the Tulsa World, April 29, 2009, Page A17. Just a place to start to help the people of Tulsa. Like you, we believe in the U.S. Constitution and the right to free speech. However, we also believe in the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Local labor unions and their out of state allies are protesting reputable companies and individuals in our community, the same companies that create jobs and have given back to Tulsa for decades. The protests have often led to unfounded personal attacks. These union interests have even used the local homeless population to carry out these attacks. Free speech is a staple of our society, but untrue allegations are despicable and un-American. Call the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America at (918) 628-0410 and tell them to stop harassing the citizens of our community. Get the Ad @ the link below. United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America Ad April 29, 2009 – Tulsa World Also a little history Before the Constitution, before the Declaration of Independence, there was the First Continental Congress. In 1774, delegates from 12 colonies (Georgia abstained), gathered at Carpenters’ Hall and voted to support a trade embargo against England, one of the first unified acts of defiance against the King. That alone would justify Carpenters’ Hall’s fame. But the building itself deserves recognition. Built by craftsmen for craftsmen, the Flemish bond brick pattern, cupola, and windows are almost flawless examples of Georgian architecture. Inside, a scale model shows 18th century methods used in the building’s construction. The delegates’ chairs and the original banner carried during the 1788 Constitutional parade are also displayed. The building is still owned by members of the Carpenters’ Company.
