  •  So you believe (0+ / 0-)

    that when a union supports a major polluting project that it becomes non-polluting? Would that be through the process of magic fairy dust? Is that how you justify to yourself doing work for major polluting projects opposed by environmental groups? I've been a union member and organizer. I'm not intimidated by your bullshit.

    •  Have you ever heard of the Blue Green alliance? (0+ / 0-)

      do you know what an environment-labor coalition is?

      You, again, don't seem to be very perceptive, and in the case of the Thoroughbred coal plant that the Owensboro Building and Construction Trades Council and the Sierra Club were both on the same side in that case.

      •  So you're claiming (0+ / 0-)

        that all of your work for labor clients, including trades like the pipefitters that want more fracking, was to stop polluting projects?
        Keep in mind that I've already googled enough to know the answer.

        •  I don't care about what answer you "know" (0+ / 0-)

          I don't make any apologies or excuses as I am proud of all of the work I've done for my labor clients and your comments to try to tar and denigrate the entire movement of union pipefitters as "polluters" supporting "polluting projects" are
          reprehensible.

          •  More straw-man. (0+ / 0-)

            And more deflection. I did not at any point denigrate the entire movement. I stated the indisputable fact that they at times support projects that would be major new sources of pollution and they support fracking in particular. Therefore, it's also a fact that you have clients with a financial interest in promoting fracking, which they frequently do. Making slanderous accusations about me hating unions does not change those facts.
