This is getting tedious. I posted a critique of Nathan and Henwood, which
prompted you to post a flurry of messages defending organizing the maquila
workers. Do you want to argue with me about the value of trade unions and
cross-border organizing? Okay, let me make you happy:

Trade unions are bourgeois institutions, just like the Democratic Party and
the Episcopalian Church. When I am driving around on my John Deere tractor,
I sometimes get so worked up over the idea of Jesse Jackson and John Sweeny
misleading the people that I want to throw a dynamite stick at the nearest
police station.
