Cell Phones: An American Right?
Perhaps we’re slow on the uptake, but this link was just forwarded to the in-box, which is to a company(?) called “SafeLink Wireless” that advertises a “free government supported program that provides a free cell phone and airtime each month for income-eligible customers.” Here’s the question: When did cell phones become a Right? It’s one thing to argue food, shelter, and even health care (none of | Read More »
UPDATE: The Faux Stimulus: $787 Billion to “Create or Save” 25,000 jobs
UPDATE: As a follow-up to our post below, Bloomberg adds to the government’s fuzzy math with this: Actual hiring seems to be lagging behind the model’s land of make-believe. For small businesses, which are the source of most job creation in the U.S., the government’s increased and changing role in the economy isn’t a confidence builder. Businessmen have no idea what health-care reform will mean | Read More »

BUSTING the HYPOCRITES: Obama, Mama Mao, the DNC and Their Union-Busting Law Firm
Were there not have been so much attention paid to the White House Communications Director, media controller, and Maoist Anita Dunn’s worshipful comments on mass murderer (and Communist dictator) Mao Zedong, we might not have discovered this story of hidden hypocrisy and seeming conflict of interest. It seems, however, that as we looked into the Maoist media controller more, the more the hypocrisy surfaced that puts Ms. Dunn, her husband and the | Read More »
‘To the winner go the spoils’… [More on the OFA Onslaught...]
As a follow-up to Thursday’s post regarding the OFA (Obama’s Juggernaught), Politico has more on the topic: The Democratic National Committee, often relatively inactive in the year after a presidential election, is ramping up its hiring and aggressively broadening its mission under the direction of Obama campaign veterans intent on applying the lessons of 2008 to races in 2010 and 2012… Financed in part by | Read More »
Barack’s Benefactor, the Purple Behemoth known as the SEIU…
You’ve know doubt heard of Michael Moore’s free-enterprise bashing movie Capitalism: A Love Story. Well, a new left-wing movie by producer Glenn Silber, called The War at Home; Part 2 is coming out soon that is featuring none other than BHO’s purple puppet master, the Service Employees International Union, aka the SEIU.

AFL-CIO Boss Implies You’re Not a ‘Real American’ Unless You Support Pelosicare
The AFL-CIO’s ‘narcissistic, lazy, self-indulgent’ new boss Richard Trumka held a rally yesterday afternoon at the AFL-CIO’s posh multi-million dollar headquarters and gave his typical fiery speech about health care. During the video (see below), Trumka aligned himself with today’s neo-socialists (aka “progressives”), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and called (again) for a “robust” public option (that slippery slope to socialized medicine in three to five years). While that, in | Read More »
2010: Obama’s Juggernaut is Already Mobilizing
Do you know what Organizing for against America is up to these days? If not, hopefully, this will shed some light on the juggernaut facing America in 2010 and beyond. So far, there seems to be nothing of equal size or weight to counter this. This is not to say, however, that this behemoth cannot be defeated, but people need to know the size of the battle | Read More »
NLRB UPDATE: McCain Vows to Block AFL-CIO/SEIU’s Becker
An update to Saturday’s post on the union radical, Craig Becker’s nomination to the National Labor Relations Board: This afternoon, as expected, the Senate’s Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee voted (without a hearing) 15-8 to confirm President Obama’s nominees to the NLRB. In a surprising and welcome twist, however, Senator John McCain stated that he would “place a hold” on the radical Craig Becker’s nomination, | Read More »
Do Union Bosses and Their Allies Want to Nationalize and Control Your Retirement Too??? In a Word: YES.
Overshadowed by the desire to nationalize health care, the delusionally-dubbed Employee Free Choice Act, and a host of other items on the progressive socialist wish list is the union desire to nationalize your retirement. As many union pension funds have tanked and entered the “critical status” (view 2009 list of critical pensions here), union bosses have come up with a new scheme and are creating a | Read More »
