I think what upsets alot of people (at least it upset me) is watching more and more of their union dues go to supporting political candidates instead of actual representation. After all when was the last time you saw a union exec. on strike and out of work?
As far as this story goes, I see real trouble brewing.... I heard the crabs were forming their own union

For those of you who want to take this thing far too seriously, Iíd suggest cracking open a cold beer and re-reading the original post. If you canít laugh, maybe you should question a few things in your life.
I am neither pro-union nor anti-union, but I am pro-funny.

And Too Stroked, your satire is hilarious.

only if he was a teamster here in louisiana in the late 50's they had the usual pipes and chains and baseball bats back then. of course my family has been know to be very boisterous and some of us are not very well tempered
