UFCW Hypocrisy On Display (Again): Two Unions Fight Over Unionizing UFCW Workers…
One week before the United Food & Commercial Workers and its allies protested retailers on Black Friday, a petition was filed at the National Labor Relations Board’s regional office in Baltimore to hold a secret-ballot election. In one of life’s rich ironies, the employer listed on the November 22nd petition was the United Food & Commercial Workers. It seems that one week before the UFCW | Read More »
Jesus Saves. Senator Pryor Tries To Score On The Rebound.
I’m remembering the 2007/2008 GOP Primary Season. It works well for those seeking a suitable method to self-castigate that leaves fewer marks than flagellation in a penitent’s closet. There was a long-shot candidate, Governor Huckabee from Arkansas, who had the vile audacity to mention his faith in an advertisement. There was a partial shot of a window in the spot that was designed to make us think of a cross. The Stephanopoulos Set reacted to this in the manner in which Gothic Fiction suggests any self-respecting Nosferatu would and reminded us all of how fascism would come to America wrapped in a cross and a flag.
If Senator Pryor were to occasionally open that Bible he holds up as a talisman athwart impending electoral doom, he would have to be struck by the verity of Ecclesiastes 1. Given the background story of Mike Huckabee’s rise in the Iowa Caucuses, it reminds me that indeed there is nothing new under the sun. Pryor reaches out to Jesus, in his moment of greatest need, as he comes to the existential realization that Media Matters just isn’t going to save him in his reelection race in Arkansas.Read More »

Beware the menace of unity
The House Judiciary Committee held hearings on Barack Obama’s abuse of power this week, leading to a good deal of dismissive commentary and general neglect from the media, because apparently it’s not even worth talking about the proper checks and balances of government power if you’re not ready to impeach the President as the grand finale. It’s too bad more attention was not paid to | Read More »
RS Interview: Dr. Chad Mathis (R CAND, AL-06 PRI).
Talked with Dr. Mathis yesterday: he’s one of the guy’s running for Alabama’s opening seat in the Sixth District. It is, for those wondering, a wondrously Republican district; so the June primary is very much a relevant one. As you can see from the “Doctor,” Chad is a surgeon in real life; and as you might imagine, he has views on Obamacare. Here’s the interview: | Read More »
Maximizing the 2014 Primaries
Sitting out the upcoming Republican primaries is not an option for conservatives. It’s time we begin monitoring the races closely while we still have a few months to affect the outcome. Earlier today, Madison Project (my employer), issued a new endorsement – Barry Loudermilk for Congress in Georgia’s 11th district. I have personally spent many hours with him, and can promise you that he is | Read More »

The Unconstitutional Takeover of Fannie and Freddie
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by Richard Epstein to discuss the government takeover of Fannie and Freddie, why it was grossly unconstitutional and judicial restraint.Read More »
The Fix Is In
In case you missed it, John Boehner has hired Rebecca Tallent. Tallent worked for the left-of-center “Bipartisan Policy Center,” and is a serious amnesty advocate. She helped John McCain and Ted Kennedy during the Bush era on that disastrous plan. Here’s what is going to happen. Boehner will wait until 2014, after qualifying for all the serious challenges to incumbents is over. Then he’ll get | Read More »
Tech at Night: The news catches up after Thanksgiving. $180k fine for participating in an attack.
Two reminders I usually make here. Use good passwords, and make sure not to run software you don’t trust. Keep your software updated. If you use it, consider switching away from the leading target online, Microsoft Windows. Government is trying to catch these guys, but you have to lock your own door at night.
Teenagers need to be monitored online. It’s for their protection against bad elements. Most parents would be disturbed to see their kids making videos like this, but without somebody watching, how would parents ever even know their kids were making video responses to requests by predators?Read More »
ACLU suing bishops over hospitals’ Pro-Life guidelines
The ACLU announced on Monday that it is going to file a sweeping federal lawsuit based on Catholic hospitals not offering abortions. Because that totally makes sense in every way possible. From the same left wing that expects Christian churches to marry same sex couple and sues them when they don’t, we have a group that wants to sue not the hospital where an incident | Read More »
Obamacare Is The Law. Of Course Harry Reid Considers His Buddies Exempt.
The reason powerful Leftists like Harry Reid get into politics is not to share the benefice of their enlightened and deeply philosophical ideology. Harry Reid got into politics to inflict his liberalism on the idiot plebes the way a rapist inflicts himself upon his victim. The man could care less whether the laws he passes help you little people. He sees no reason to hold himself accountable under those laws. The laws, you see, are for lesser beings, not Nietzschean Uber-Tools like Senator Harry Reid.
Now how could RMJ say such deprecating things about caring public servants like Senator Harry Reid? Why would he behave so badly and be such a vile, iniquitous hypocrite? In response to the first question, I’m saying bad things about a hateful and obnoxious man because Harry Reid just exempted his scumbag, poli-sci hack staff from Obamacare. Why, you ask? He does it for the same reason Ghengis Kahn inseminated women all over Asia. He can.Read More »

Poverty and competition
Think of this as a companion piece to “Poverty and Free Will” from yesterday, because now President Obama has jumped on Pope Francis’ remarks and used them to bash capitalism, so there’s more to say on the subject. Obama loves to use the language of markets and choice, stealing the trappings of capitalism to conceal socialist compulsion and political corruption. Challenged on the point, he | Read More »
Actors’ Equity might want to have a word with @barackobama on his hiring practices.
Because I’m betting that these people didn’t have union cards: Nineteen people stood behind President Obama on stage in the Executive Office Building Tuesday as the president kicked off a new campaign to promote Obamacare. [snip of biographical data about Monica Weeks] There were 18 other people standing with Weeks and the president on stage. Obama began his remarks by saying, “Thanks to Monica, thanks | Read More »
Wendy Davis Will Be Charitable With Your Tax Dollars
The problem with liberals is they always want to be charitable with your money and never with their own.Wendy Davis has released her tax records. Turns out she’s only managed to fund about 2.7 abortions over the last three years. She’d rather use the power of the state to make you fund the abortions.In all seriousness, Davis’ adjusted gross income rose from $130,931 in 2010 | Read More »
IRS Moves to Stifle Political Activity of Tea Party Groups
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by Hans von Spakovsky to discuss new IRS regulations aimed at stifling the political activity of groups like the NRA and Tea Party, how the Obama administration has chosen to selectively enforce the law to their liking and why Obamacare is the biggest legal struggle this country will face for the foreseeable future.Read More »
Salon.com Asst. Editor Elias Isquith Declares Obamacare Implementation “Sabotage”
All I did was demand Republicans insist Obamacare be implemented as it was designed and written. After all, the President himself tweeted out his signature on the law and declared it “the law of the land.”I’m sure Salon.com Assistant Editor Elias Isquith thinks Obamacare is the “law of the land” too. But he calls my demands that the law be faithfully implemented “sabotage.”His view is | Read More »
The Borg, The Draft And Dana Milbank
I was fortunate enough to spend several years as an officer in The United States Army Reserve. You could say I was a nice enough guy, but never quite made it to Colonel.* Even given that somewhat limited background, I feel I learned sufficiently what an army does well and what an army should not be used for. Suffice it to say that the true purpose of an Army is to blow up our nation’s enemies or be powerful enough to command the respect of others to the point where they check their animosity towards us at the door. An army is not an institution that should ever be used for social engineering. Thus, a recent article by Dana Milbank** had me imagining an American version of Pinochet. Milbank opines below:

As I make my rounds each day in the capital, chronicling our leaders’ plentiful foibles, failings, screw-ups, inanities, outrages and overall dysfunction, I’m often asked if there’s anything that could clean up the mess….But there is one change that, over time, could reverse the problems that have built up over the last few decades. We should have mandatory military service for all Americans, men and women alike, when they turn 18. The idea is radical, unlikely and impractical — but it just might work.
Well, Isn’t This Interesting: One of the leaders of Thursday’s fast-food strike is a White House visitor…
On Thursday, SEIU-backed protestors are planning to “strike” at fast-food restaurants in 100 cities.
One of the many union front groups that are springing up around the country and which is helping back-door unionize the fast-food industry is the “Restaurant Opportunities Center” [ROC].Read More »
