If you have driven by Price Chopper’s corporate headquarters recently, at the corner of Nott Street and Maxon Road in Schenectady, you may have noticed a few demonstrators standing out front holding a banner saying, “Shame on Price Chopper,” with the words “labor dispute” in smaller print. And maybe you wondered what it was all about. Well, it’s pretty obscure. It has to do with Price Chopper’s recent construction of a new store in Binghamton, ...

Finally a column I agree with. I guess even a blind squirrel can find a nut once in a while, right Carl.

It is what it is.
Very good reporting on the reality of the illusion.

It's all about perception.
One would assume that Price Chopper is a non-union shop.

And WMarinic--
I enjoyed the metaphor.
Thanks. lol

Gee Carl, I too agree with WMarinic! Once in awhile you get it right. No rambling on and on just to the point.

We at Tech Valley Drywall applaude you! We went as far as to get our own signs regarding the union. We are tired of our employees and our customers being harrassed by the union at job sites and through form letters. They also send these form letters for many jobs to every non-union contractor, GC's and the owners. We have to spend time explaining to our long standing customers we have done nothing wrong or illegal.

We would happy to provide you with copies of the form letters and names of other non-union contractors going through the same thing.

Take a drive by Clifton Park Center, early or late morning and see the same union tactics going on there against Don Greene.

Interesting that after you bash Jews, you decide to make nice just as they want your head. That sign has been up for weeks but once the most prominent Jew in the area calls for you to be fired, you write this piece to make nice? You got balls!

Hey Mezz3131--

Bashing JEWS?
Give me a break.
Carl Strock did not such thing.
But balls -- he has. And You?

My, my, the mear mention of anything critical of Israel and they start with the letter writing! Not my words but Woody Allen's (parafrased from Jade Scorpion).

Get a life, Mezz.
As it is said in the old neighborhood: Zei gezunt.

Sparky... I got more balls than you! This is not about Israel, jackass. It is about his belittling Jews, Judaism, Muslim Islam, Christian and Christianity. It is about him being so myopic that he stirs up xenophobia.
Balls? Nah. It is cowardness.
