Why would you think my comment applied to you? Unions have a role but when a public union starts to bankrupt a state, then the relationship should be examined or do you think members should not be affected by the economy like everyone else?
Cassie, When a person identifies with a position, a party, a church, a family - useage of words emotive words (in this case)"thug" and "leftist" are perceived as attacks. 2.Austerity economics. as stated in "The Price of Inequality" is dangerous.
Calling a person or group "leftist" is not an attack. It is merely calling a spade a spade -- just as calling a person or group "right wing" is nothing more than calling it like it is.
The DENOTATION of "leftist" is:"pertaining to, or advocated by the political Left." However,the CONNOTATION implies radicalism. Left-wing is not as offensive as leftist. I don't call a right wing view "fascist" out of respect for others' viewpoints
Billie, at a time like this, the least of your worries should be semantics.
