Hey, Rahm, by dropping the F-bomb on the UAW, did you mean ‘fish?’
Just in time for the Obama administration to bow to their labor bosses over Labor Day weekend comes this little f-bomb laden bombshell [emphasized, yet, edited for RS readers]: In “Overhaul”, his upcoming chronicle of his reign as “car czar,” Steven Rattner offers an insider’s account of the Obama administration’s rescue of the auto industry. And he pulls no punches when it comes to describing | Read More »
They’re Out of the Closet Now: Big Labor = Big Socialism
We’ve made mention of the coming socialist progressive GOTV rally on October 2nd, but this is more revealing. Move over Andy Stern, it’s time to call it like it is: Today’s union bosses are out of the closet, pushing a socialist agenda. [via The Blaze] Heh…and you thought union bosses actually cared about America? __________________ “I bring reason to your ears, and, in language as | Read More »
Voting With Your Wallet: Are you helping to fund America’s impending bankruptcy?
The question in the title of this post is more rhetorical because, in answer to the question, we are all (to varying degrees) helping to fund the demise of America and, for most of us, we are doing it every day. In so many ways, we do it every time a decision is made to purchase something—anything—be it groceries, appliances, and even bigger ticket items | Read More »
The SEIU Wants Its Members to Be Politically Active: Unless they’re conservative, that is.
The Service Employees International Union has become infamous as the socialist progressive union that has backed the notoriously corrupt organization ACORN, taken Alinsky-style radicalism and transformed it into a science, as well as led the fight to nationalize health care. Nevertheless, as a union, there is a line that may have been crossed in Oregon where it seems that the SEIU is unabashedly discriminating against one | Read More »
Palin: Union Brothers and Sisters, Join Our Commonsense Cause!
The union spinmeisters are going to be working overtime tonight. Earlier today, the AFL-CIO’s Thug-in-Chief, Richard “the Fifth” Trumka slammed Sarah Palin in her home state of Alaska, equating her to Joe McCarthy and accusing her of rhetoric that he, himself, could be accused of using. As a follow-up to our post earlier, below is the text [emphasis added] from Ms. Palin’s Facebook page (edited | Read More »
What Do Union Members Do When Union Bosses’ Political Agendas Don’t Reflect Their Own?
Grandpa Wouldn’t Recognize Today’s Unions. Nationwide, as many Americans have begun to see, unions have become one of the largest special interest groups in the nation—and often at the expense of taxpayers and, in many cases, other workers. As unions have moved more into politics, this transition from building unions for workers to building a progressive political party to “reorder America’s priorities” has left many union | Read More »
[Updated] AFL-CIO Joins Marxist Coalition for November GOTV
This almost escaped our attention (h/t Romantic Poet), but you had better pay attention to it. The following [emphasis added] is from People’s World, the self-described publisher of news and views of the Communist Party USA: The AFL-CIO executive committee voted unanimously this morning to join One Nation, Working Together, a new national coalition of labor and civil rights groups that has as its purpose | Read More »
Obama Tries Snookering America By DISCLOSE-ing Disdain For The Truth
How far has the Office of the President been denigrated when, thirty-something years ago it took two crack reporters from the Washington Post and some guy named “Deep Throat” to uncover the lies enveloping the White House, to today, when a pint-sized faux-Jersey girl named Snooki can catch the President of the United States in a lie? Really. How pathetic is it when, barely 20 | Read More »
Will NYC’s Building Trade Unions Work on 9/11 Mosque? Don’t Hold Your Breath.
Knowing some of the Ground Zero workers and the patriotism they have, particularly regarding the 9/11 attacks, we have been curious as to whether they would actually work on the Ground Zero Mosque at all. Now, it appears, that there is a growing movement that indicates getting the building trades of NYC to work on a mosque that is so close to Ground Zero may | Read More »
Proud to be Union? How unions decimate small family-owned businesses
As perverted as this may seem, there is almost no company that is too small to become a target of a union, as long as there are at least two employees. Even worse, adding to the already-lengthy trail of industrial carnage left by unions, American labor law gives today’s unions the right to destroy small companies under the guise of unionizing employees. This is particularly true | Read More »
