    "Who's gonna take him out for drinks?  Who's gonna invite him for poker night?  The management?  Who wants to be seen with a moocher?"

    Personally, I'd worry about finding one of my tires with a nail in the tread every now and then. That would be the kind of thing that would be a hint without actually being a clear sign of vengeance.

      mainly to avoid the spectre of violence, not to mention the old-time "union thugs" delusion.

      Conservatives need to realize that their Silent Moral Majority is neither silent, nor moral, nor a majority.

          ...fighting for IBEW rights in New York City. Most violence was done TO union workers BY owner-hired thugs.

          For conservatives, though, the past never died.  That is the delusion.  Coupled with their common fallacy of assuming that because something they fear is logically possible, it is necessarily widespread (like voter ID fraud, welfare queens, etc.) and must be dealt with.  Union violence is on this same list.

          Granted, much of the union violence of the past was in self-defense or retaliation.  But then again, the plebes aren't supposed to fight back, are they

          Conservatives need to realize that their Silent Moral Majority is neither silent, nor moral, nor a majority.
