When someone uses variations on the "fuck" root that many time in a paragraph, you gotta wonder whether a nerve has been struck.

In any case, I've known Bob Fitch for more than 15 years. Calling him a stooge for the boss is a disgusting smear. Just how has he used UnionFacts.com to promote his career? And what do you know about that career? He's lived for years in a tiny apartment on a near-poverty income from adjunct teaching jobs and miniaturized freelance writing fees. Yeah, you don't like his work. But don't make up stuff about him.
