Looking for a Good Strike

There are strikes on my mind recently. In DC we had a one-day taxi strike (drivers don't want to switch from the city's zone system to a metered one). In NYC, taxi drivers went on strike to complain about new cabs being decorated with flowers. In Hollywood, we've got an upcoming writers' strike, which apparently means only news & "reality" programming will be available. Ugh. In automobile land, Ford and the UAW are working to avoid a strike over a number of issues (esp. retirement health care).

But in the world where we could really use some strikes, we never get them! Then again, if the Bush administration, Fox Newsless, or the neo-cons went on strike, would anyone even miss them? But boy oh boy would I love the chance to find out! Where are the strikes like that - the ones that could heal and help the nation?

For the neocons and theocons, the best possible strike is strike three!!
