That’s a sneaky one, Unions. Using the Minimum Wage hike that way.
Premise 1: Unions are all about helping workers. Premise 2: The minimum wage should be raised a whole lot to help workers. Recent headline: Unions want companies who employ union workers to be exempted from minimum wage hike laws. Given these three items, one of these conclusions is true: A) unions are not interested in helping workers; or B) the minimum wage hike will not actually | Read More »
The Amazing Invisible Police Brutality
Michael Brown was gunned down in cold blood, they say. Officer Darren Wilson shot the unarmed gentle giant multiple times even as he was trying to surrender. Brown was a victim of rampant police violence caused by endemic racism, and only a racist would say otherwise. The grand jury was given the evidence, listened to hours and hours of testimony, reviewed forensics reports, and concluded…. | Read More »
Barack Obama: Democrat Savior
Barack Obama is the Democrats’ best hope for getting their groove back as a party. According to Politico, they think that. Donna Brazile visited the White House the day after the midterm bloodbath and when she left she was convinced that, “Obama is the best and most effective person to get out the message.” See, it’s a messaging issue, not a “the people hate what | Read More »
Outsourcing? Charlie Wilson sells furniture made in China.
Charlie Wilson, the former pro-life former Congressman from my district here in southeast Ohio, the battleground sixth district, lost his seat in Congress when he folded like a cheap sofa bed along with Bart Stupak and voted for Obamacare. Now he wants his seat back, even though he has embraced that damning vote, among others, and has offered no new reasons to vote for him. Wilson’s | Read More »
Successful Small Business Owner on the Public-Sector Union Kerfuffle
My dad began working for himself as a carpenter and cabinet maker the year I was born, when he was 25 years old. Thirty-two years and four kids later, Crowe’s Cabinets, Inc., is a successful, small, *non-union* cabinet shop just outside of Youngstown, Ohio. I don’t believe he has ever employed more than 10 people at a time. Through the recession of late they haven’t | Read More »
DEMOCRAT Strickland Judicial Appointee Arrested on Corruption Charges
Between Mahoning (my home) and Cuyahoga counties, you’d think Ohioans would stop trust Democrats entirely. (For clarification, I’ve provided party identifications, since the reporters unexpectedly failed to do so.) In a slew of arrests this morning in Cuyahoga County (Cleveland area) Judge Steven Terry was hauled in by the FBI as part of a broad corruption investigation. Terry was appointed by DEMOCRAT Governor Ted Strickland | Read More »
Clash of Realms: Bishop Tobin, Representative Kennedy, and Church-State Entanglement.
Thomas J. Tobin, bishop of the Roman Catholic diocese of Providence, Rhode Island has apparently instructed Rep. Patrick Kennedy not to present himself for Holy Communion due to the latter’s pro-abortion stance and his public statements asserting that his standing as a Catholic is unaffected by his dissent from the unwavering and well-known position of the Church on this issue. Is this an inappropriate and | Read More »
Quisling, Moral Coward. (or, “Judas got 30 pieces of silver; how ’bout you?”)
Dear Congressman Wilson– So you’ve decided to vote for the healthcare bill. I’ll not waste more pixels trying to convince you of its wrongness–you’re clearly beyond convincing or rational argumentation based in fact, reality, or sanity. I’m especially surprised by your announcement in the wake of the recent elections in which opponents of the government healthcare plan won in Virginia, New Jersey, and even in | Read More »
OHIO: Vote Yes for local control and regulation of farms!
Someone whom I trust and who works in local farming in Ohio wrote the following about ISSUE 2 here in Ohio. (The one @ewerickson described so nicely as “banning choking chickens and spanking monkeys.”) In short, it’s a local solution to a concern that national interests may exploit to have more restrictive measures passed in the future. It’s a constitutional amendment to prevent national interest | Read More »
