    call them out.

    Yes, AFL-CIO have made mistakes in the past.

    But so have the UAW.

    They fought fuel efficiency standards. They fought alternative fuels. They were early global warming deniers. They stopped fighting for everyone... just themselves.

    They have only in the passed couple of years come around.

    Now they are beginning to adopt a green agenda... or at  least they're not fighting it anymore.

    This is a crisis I knew had to come, Destroying the balance I'd kept. Doubting, unsettling and turning around, Wondering what will come next.
