    Oh you mean union bosses and thugs.

    I thought you meant, you know, the actual bosses and thugs!

    That's a pretty damned funny misread on my part, now that I think about it. LOL

    But listen, you are, I think, seriously wrong to blame Scabby for those media narratives. I need to go AFK right now, so all I'll say is that you gotta look at who owns the airwaves and media companies. Also look at Lewis Powell's famous memo. The RW revolution had at its heart, among other things, the desire to character assassinate unions and make them as unpopular as possible, for obvious reasons. You can't say that Scabby is responsible for all this, nor even a large part of it. There is no narrative so nice that your enemy will not twist it against you. Ask the people of Wisconsin.

      I don't think scabby creates that narrative. I think he is used to enforce it. He is easy pickings for a media outlet that wants to label Unions as bullies. We should not give them weapons against us. Especially when that weapon is so ineffective for our goals.
