There once was a girl named Lenore
And a bird and a bust and a door
And a guy with depression
And a whole lot of questions
And the bird always says "Nevermore."

There is a tendency for many of us on the right to think of anti-war sentiment as a modern phenomenon caused by some moral failing inherent in baby boomers and their offspring. It is worth remembering how unpopular our “Good Wars” were in their day.
I actually used to be a union member. I remember thinking at the time about how removed union officials were from the rank and file. The necessity of bringing in (non-union) transients to picket says a lot about the depth support for the union and also what they think a fair wage is-do you think their membership would settle for eight bucks an hour?
