Ian--I doubt if you or even Max realizes how seriously pissed off the average Steelworker and other manufacturing workers are at this time. George Becker represents hundreds of thousands of really unhappy campers. I very seldom do any pissing or moaning on this list---let me tell you we have got plenty to piss and moan about. Out there in your state, the Kaiser Aluminum debacle is just a little taste of what's going on across the nation. Even in places that never have problems there are serious rumblings about working conditions and the future of the workplace. These trade deals are killing us and personally, I don't care if we have to go below the belt to stop them.

We can have all the most wonderful alturistic motives in the world; that's not what counts when your dealing with corporate politicians. The only thing that counts is what kind of heart attack you can give them.
