          Perhaps, but I’m unwilling to experiment. Assume the worst, wait for controverting proof. People forget that before the 60s, not even Democrats were eager to put public service workers into unions. It was a black day when they allied with politicians in such an overt way.

            Good intentions as we know can have unintended consequences for the worse. I agree with above excepting assume worse (I want to assume the better yet you and I know humanity has on occasion fell short).

    Very apt that the teachers sport the color of radical communist chic.

    The labor gangs are the largest single source of money for the Democrats, if they make major cuts in funding, the 2014 and 2016 elections are going to find the Democrats with empty pockets. I like it.
