    precision pervasive in the rhetoric deployed to back up the viewpoint of "what's wrong with America" includes the 2nd Amendment.

    People don't seem to think they need to pay attention to detail when they're "fighting the evil that is guns".

      Bigtime probably misread.

      And behind this giant is the even more gigantic Cerberus Capital Management, known for such major deals as buying and selling both Chrysler and GM's finance division in recent years –
      We Won provided similar info as to whats already in the diary.
      The work at Remington is still highly skilled, much sought after, and still pays well.
      And as for the union, the busting took place back in the late 50's, there is no specific mention that there is no union today at the plant.  
      In 1927 Remington became Remington-Rand, an entity that lasted until 1958 and built early business machines and the first widely used computers, the giant UNIVACs. Its president, James Rand, also pioneered union-busting and boasted of his success in a pamphlet entitled “The Mohawk Valley Formula," his playbook for union-busting, with heavy emphasis on misinformation and provoking violence.
