These are the kind of people that perpetrated the Ludlow Massacre.
Read the whole Wikipedia entry. It’s a shameful chapter of Colorado history – and the bastards that made it happen are still filthy rich and spitting on the unions.
For shame Bill Ritter. You’ll regret standing with these people.
Karma never sleeps and neither do the souls of the murdered workers at Ludlow. Labor won’t soon forget how you climbed up their backs and then pissed on them.
