Let me see if I understand your position here, Mr. Kaczmarek.
Your fellow union brothers and sisters voted to strike when negotiations with a new, union-busting employer went nowhere. Always a last resort, strikes are effective only when the members stick together and fight to preserve the benefits they've gained. This is especially true in a small town with few good-paying jobs.
YOU, instead, caved in to management and went crawling back for whatever they offered. You then get called a scab and cry about it.
YOU, instead, left your fellow workers to do the fighting for a fair contract while you sneak behind their backs to take their jobs and weaken their position. You then get called a scab and cry about it.
YOU, instead, have the nerve to claim that those fellow workers you deserted have no 'honor' or 'loyalty', no concept of 'teamwork' or 'brotherhood', or that "their only motivation is the almighty dollar?" Look in the mirror, pal. I think that describes your actions pretty well.
And what in the world does being a veteran have to do with any of this? The next time you pass through those folks who've had the guts not to compromise their principles, why not thank your fellow veterans among them for your 'freedom' to stab them in the back.
When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the Earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much hosed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.
