which of course is your acknowledgement that you have no response to some substantial issues:

1. that your ******** "right-to-work" anti-union anarchism is a staple of state governments across the US, and puts you squarely in the pocket of the Tea Party, the Heritage Foundation and other truly revolutionary organizations

2. that attacks and defeats of unions make you "happy," as if such defeats are "spontaneous" eruptions of class-consciousness by workers rather than carefully coordinated attacks by capitalists using thugs, goons, threats, state power, to capitalize on the weaknesses of union organizing.

3. that your "evidence" for a current upsurge in wildcat strikes in the US is neither current nor relevant to the US.

I always find it amusing that dilettantes, twits, poseurs, when challenged with issues of substance, respond by likening the challenger to genitalia. Always a sign of real intelligence, and confidence in their arguments.

Pack up your right to work ******** and hit the bricks, Dankston. You got a long road ahead of you. It turns to the right. Best be on your way. Hope your feet don't fail you, because your politics sure do.

As a comrade has so pithily put it: "I’m inclined to agree with the assessments of the communists after October 1917: the neutralization of the petit-bourgeoisie is a major task of the revolutionary movement."

What exactly is the line that you propose Dankston? "Everything less than soviets and everything more than spontaneous is counter-revolutionary"?

It should be repeated that in relation to the ongoing effort to organize Boeing South Carolina, the last election petition (2015) was cancelled by the IAM because of guns being pulled on their organizers during home visits due to the politically constructed anti-union frenzy:

Quote:
The union said it was forced to call off its door-to-door canvassing campaign this week after two organizers were greeted with homeowners brandishing guns as they ordered them off their property and “others reported hostile and near-violent confrontations.”

...

“I hold the Boeing Co., South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and their surrogates responsible for creating an atmosphere of state-sanctioned hostility toward unions and union organizers,” he added.

It should also be repeated that before Boeing created their Boeing South Carolina division, the plant they occupy there now was owned by one of their subcontractors-- Vought Aircraft, which was organized by the IAM in 2008 (and decertified in 2009). Boeing bought the plant in 2009, right around the time that they were using the runaway shop threat against the worker fortress in Everett, Washington (over 30,000 workers at that single plant complex)--and most represented by the IAM and other smaller unions.

When the IAM organized the Vought plant in '08, this was the situation:

Quote:
A Web site the union created specifically to drum up support from North Charleston workers showed disparities between what the IAM says Vought's local employees earn, $15 an hour, and what IAM members make at Vought and Boeing plants in Nashville and Seattle, $22 an hour to $32 an hour, not including cost-of-living increases.

Cheering for the defeat of the IAM is cheering for the victory of Boeing; opposing the workers' organizing effort is the same as supporting the status quo of lower wages, longer hours, arbitrary discipline and inferior working conditions.

It sounds like you share common ground with the company men who drew guns on union organizers, or the business and right-wing funded anti-union 'workers organizations' that prop up at large plants in the South (most spectacularly the 'American Council of Employees' and 'Southern Momentum' in Volkswagon's Chattanooga plant, but the Boeing SC plant had its own similar group too).
