Quote by swing363:

would just like to make one observation, and I have only been a member of any blogs, including this one, for a very short time, I have found them to be informative, and a place to exchange ideas and try to unite members to be better informed and a place to let it all out, yes and even a stress release being able to communicate ideas and feelings otherwise silenced. I applaud those who keep these sights going and all those who participate. Now that being said I do not know any of you, or really anything about any of you, other than what I've read, I do not know anything in particular, and certainly don't want to stick my nose into this juvinile girly fight that this blondeliberal sister is continueing on every sight, you add nothing of any substance or intelligence, or value whatsoever. Everytime someone posts something you throw in your petty catfight and take away from meaningful discussion, all you seem to do is catfight and character assasinate the very brothers you should be laying down your personal life for. I am part of these blogs because the IBEW is broken and only through brotherhood and solidarity, with tools like truth, justice, equality, transperancy, honesty, integrity, fairness, communication of thoughts and ideas and most important unity, "united we stand, divided we fall can WE invoke real change. My point is sister you really sound like an antiunion bafoon, and there has been not one thing constructive or helpful in all your posts, you just seem to have this kindergarten sandbox vendatta going on and I for one am really sick of your negative girly, child like, petty, anti-brotherhood, unintelligent responses. I am sorry if your offended but really your bullcrap really offends me, I really wish you would play your silly little name calling on some other site, maybe some hate group somewhere, where being negative and useless counts for something, and let us alone so we can help our oppressed brothers and sisters overcome this tyranny. Sorry just sick of it, I'm putting everything on the line for this union, and take these disscussion seriously and have just had it. I think your a sister excuse me if I'm wrong i've just never heard a man call themselves a blonde.

I would like to add a couple techniques to the above list: the use of front groups and generating doubt about scientific theories.

Front Groups

A good example of the use of front groups is illustrated by looking at the environmental activism against logging in B.C. that occurred about twelve years ago. The Vancouver Sun newspaper later revealed that some environmental activist groups opposing logging in B.C. at this time were funded by American logging companies. No doubt an attempt to restrict lumber exports from B.C. to the U.S. as a way to raise lumber prices and generate bigger profits for U.S. logging companies.

so what can the officers do eric???  boycott the site they are going??

Make a motion to donate a hell of a lot of money to the groups' fighting this so they can pay the Lawyers!

Invest in your future.
Keep the work of building mods for the Oilsands in Canada!
This is Our resource and we should be rewarded by getting paid for all the work done to build these projects.

If you could assist in stopping this shipments in their tracks... forcing them to have to break downs the mods in the USA...< read: Make sure that Union Trades get the work.
IBEW Members would get the work to remove the electrical tray, grounding, heat trace, power points, rtds, cable, conduit, etc., etc....

What do you think?



So, during the Good of the Union, just start discussing the merits of having someone start a non-profit front group that could be at arms' length but achieving the goal of preventing any modules from ever being being built anywhere else but Alberta.
