Marx clearly didn't understand the lure of sports and blood...

When Karl Marx said that religion is the opiate of the masses, he obviously had no idea the powerful influence of sports on our society, nor of the hunter's bloodlust.

Down ol 'Bamy way, it seems the International Association of Machinists got frustrated recently that workers at Mercedez-Benz plant haven't jumped on the union's bandwagon.

Don Barker, lead organizer for the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers said the Machinists probably erred by starting its campaign in March, when many potential members were distracted by the NCAA basketball tournament and the start of hunting season.

Rather than realizing that the product the union is selling is as outdated as its ideological forefather, Barker and his cronies have placed their blame on the workers' distracted attention.

How quaint...
