  •  And 1903-04 when the miners went on strike (10+ / 0-)

    in Colorado and the Republican Governor sent in the military and they rounded up the strikers, deported many, sent others to the bullpen, killed some, framed some. And the union itself was infiltrated with spies, even some officers were spies and disruptors within the union itself.

    So in the 1913-14 strike when the Governor was from that other political party and had been elected with labor support, of course! none of that military despotism could possibly have been allowed with gunthugs, and spying, and round-ups, and certainly no massacre of strikers and their families could have ever happened by a military under the command of a Governor elected on the Democratic Party ticket.

    ...right?
