    We are in a political environment where in the main stream media reports on politicians who divide the country into real Americans and socialists/hard left/Marxists whatever.  So for the public trained on such rhetoric, seeing just union members - a special interest, right- out there protesting is like seeing greed in action.  I base this in part on the comments to the Free Press reporting on both the Detroit Symphony Orchestra strike and on Snyder's budget plans.  I would estimate that it is a ratio of 6 to 1 calling to bust these greedheads who dare to think that workers should have any say in their pay, benefits or working conditions.
