"There can be no compromise on basic principles. There can be no compromise on moral issues. There can be no compromise on matters of knowledge, of truth, of rational conviction."

"There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil....In any compromise between food and poison, it is only death that can win. In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit." Ayn Rand

    Arianna Huffington’s Hilarious Hypocrisy: Union-Busting Like…a Capitalist Pig?!?

    We probably won’t hear AFL-CIO boss Richard Trumka comparing Arianna Huffington to Hitler; nor will we likely see Joey “BFD” Biden weigh in on the merits of collective bargaining in this case either.

    Wolf Packs: Wisconsin’s Public-Sector Unions Turn Into Neighborhood Thugs

    In Wisconsin last week, it was the police and firefighters unions threatening local business* with boycotts should they not support the union efforts to turn back the clock on their so-called collective bargaining rights.

    Union-Controlled NLRB Approves Union Thuggery in Union Elections

    The Left’s New Tone? “…you will be killed and your familes will also be killed…”

    Because you believe in freedom and fiscal responsibility, you’ve been told that you are racist hate-monger. Because you rallied and held Gadsen Flags, you’ve been called astroturf.
