1. good one

So much Union bashing these days, people think there is no need for them but they don't realize when they are gone there is no legitimate way to organize political mass movement against the persistence of reactionaries and the Wall Street Democrat sell outs.

For God sake I know a family in Bethlehem PA, which was a coal mining city and their relatives were all union but still getting screwed over and they say "We hate unions, they are destroying the economy." That is some pretty disrespectful garbage.
