    This story almost got by me.

    I’m stoked by this “Five state spark” story about unions confronting “the man”. It’s this type of initial “spark” that can set off major “brush fires of the mind” in terms the usurpers vs. “We the People” regardless of the issues or the end benefit.

    Ture grit must proceed constructive action in all areas of contention…!

    This nation belongs to us; I.E., “We the People” and not to they the elected ‘reps’ of such. / : |
