13. Nasty anti-union shit. No need to hide your true colors, huh, third way Dem?
THEY don't get to tell DEMS what to do? Because UNIONS act like the mafia? (how original). More like the unions shouldn't let the Dems boss them around. Why should union leaders give Democrats OUR DUES MONEY and hollow out OUR STRIKE FUNDS to support politicians that abandon their rank and file.

I support unions above the Democratic Party, and let me tell you, if the unions leave it: I leave it.
