So, the Amnesty-Loving UFCW Supports Arizona’s SB 1070 Now?
In Las Vegas, the Nutroots Nation* conference is going on this weekend. On Friday, the UFCW hosted a panel discussion over “immigration reform” (aka Amnesty for Illegals) that featured the UFCW’s Mark Lauritsen (see video below), Arizona State Rep.

Perception vs. Reality: Job Creator or Job Killer?
With first-time unemployment claims unexpectedly jumping by 37,000 last week, an unacceptably large number of Americans remain unemployed with the Obama administration giving Americans almost no signs of hope. Shockingly, the White House stated on Friday that it expects unemployment to remain at or above 9% until 2012. Meanwhile, the White House is also expecting the national debt to top $26 trillion be the year 2020 and, | Read More »
SherrodGate: AFL-CIO weighs in with a lesson on deflection
You really didn’t think union bosses would stay quiet on the Obama administration’s “foolish, impulsive and reactive” knee-jerk firing of Shirley Sherrod, did you? After all, their pro-union President’s administration just did the unthinkable: fired a worker without investigation, without due process, without hearing her side of the story and, apparently, without using any judgement whatsoever. [Yep. We're coining the phrase: SherrodGate.] Now, the White | Read More »
Breitbart Goes Fishing for Minnows and Brilliantly Bags the Big Fish!
This. Is. Hilarious. Saul Alinksy. They are his disciples. They’ve studied him and worshiped at his feet. They’ve used his black arts tactics on the American public in every way imaginable (and unimaginable) to elevate themselves to the highest offices in the land—nay, the world. Yet, when an upstart internet entrepreneur went fishing for a minnow, not only did the minnow take the bait, but so did the | Read More »

Union threats of more strikes against Red Cross jeopardize blood collections
Back in June, the Red Cross became the target of coordinated union strikes across the country. While the strikes were temporary (lasting less than a week), the unions are still on the warpath, without contracts and still hanging the threat of striking over the Red Cross’ head. This, according to the Red Cross, may jeopardize its ability to conduct future blood drives. Local American Red | Read More »
AFSCME Goes Ugly in Wisconsin: Picks a GOP Trojan Horse
As proof that unions will stop at nothing to see their goals achieved, the American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees (AFSCME) has become “bi-partisan” in a peculiar sort of way. The public-sector union is putting its own union candidate into a race as a Republican just to ensure a win by giving the voters a choice between AFSCME candidate A, or AFSCME | Read More »
Lazy, arrogant unions hire nonunion homeless to protest hiring of nonunion help
We’ve posted on this strange and almost perverse phenomon before: Unions hiring non-union homeless people to picket on behalf the of union members so unions can spend time doing something more productive, like avoiding all the trouble of finding a parking space… Now the Wall Street Journal has more: So instead, the union hires unemployed people at the minimum wage—$8.25 an hour—to walk picket lines.
