No, I’m not a “3rd world person”, I just assumed that you, in your ignorance, referred to me as such. If you were not referring to me, I apologize.

That being said, regardless of whom you were referring to, it was nothing short of bigoted name-calling on your part.

How what concerns me? That you are a bigoted, name-calling liar? It truly does not concern me in the least. Stick and stones dude, go for it!

Okay, and I understand how complicated this is for you, what with your limited comprehension skills and all, but:

Calling someone a “3rd world freak” is (like it or not) bigoted name-calling. Even if you want to make an idiotic claim that because 3rd world refers to someone’s location in the world your name-calling is not bigoted, it is still name-calling.

That brings us around to your being a liar. You clamed repeatedly you had not called any names, an obvious, bold-faced lie.

Now you are attempting to discredit me by accusing me of being anti-union. I am not anti union. I think the USW helped Goodyear bend the (mostly willing) workers over. If that makes me anti union, what does it make you?

Again, it is not my fault you are stuck working for a POC company with a POC union.

Just reading these posts and remembering time out on the line, even though Life has moved on and I have a good job now still makes me sad to see the way we canadians got f--ed over. sometimes I wish I could turn back time. I liked the job I had and truly liked the people I worked with. its just a shame thats all.
