SEIU’s Andy Stern: We ‘changed America forever’…

The SEIU and Union Violence: When will the violence stop, Mr. Stern?
In the world of labor relations, all too often, union violence is commonly associated with unions when they are on strike. In many cases, union violence occurs when an employer maintains his ability to continue his operations using replacement workers while unionized workers are out striking. In some rarer instances, union violence will occur during inter and intra-union battles, with union members occasionally being the | Read More »
A Rising Tide Lifts All Boats. Sort of.
The first part of the title to this post is a very common phrase amongst conservative circles. In it’s simplest form, the phrase means that as long as we can improve the general economy we will improve the lot of everyone actively involved in the economy. Generally, this statement is true. A growing economy grows total compensation for workers at all levels. The phrase is | Read More »
As long as Obama does the SEIU’s bidding, he is and always will be “anti-business”
President Obama has been bending over backwards lately trying to craft himself as “pro-business/pro-free-market.” Almost invoking the spirit of Ayn Rand, Obama has even declared himself to be “an ardent believer in the free market” while making an effort to rebut claims that his policies are “socialist” (a never-before heard statement from a President of the United States, as far as we can tell). In a recent BusinessWeek | Read More »
Obama: “I am a giant hypocrite.”
So it’s official — Andy Stern, head of SEIU, is now on the supposedly bipartisan Fiscal Commission that President Obama has created (via Executive Order, after the Senate failed to pass it) to examine the debt. Let’s get this straight: Obama spends money at a record pace, and then appoints a union chief to a panel to figure out how to fix it? That’s sort | Read More »
SEIU Front Group: America is a ‘Dangerous Idea’…Attacks Continue on America’s Tea Party Movement
Are the leaders of the purple behemoth known as the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) opposed to America’s founding principles? Are America’s founders “extremists” to people like Andy Stern and Anna Burger? When you start to add up the evidence, it certainly appears so. The SEIU is the same union… that ‘declared war’ last year on America’s Tea Party movement… that spent nearly $1 million dollars | Read More »

Seeing Andy Stern’s own members campaigning for the opposition: PRICELESS America’s de facto Labor Party received a serious setback tonight: Brown will give Republicans a 41st seat in the Senate, robbing Democrats of the filibuster-proof majority the party had used to pass | Read More »
All The King’s Horses And All The King’s Men… May Not Be Enough.
The Anointed One’s panic button must certainly have been pushed to stir him from the urgency of crafting more illegal deals in his ILLEGAL attempted takeover of 16% of our total economy, taking ownership of our bodies and way of life as well. It remains to be seen how close they really are to agreement. It also remains to be seen how many of their | Read More »

SEIU $680,000 To Defeat Brown – Money Taken From Member Dues.
Bureau of Labor Statistics came out with this startling figure. For every job in the United States today there are over SIX POINT FIVE APPLICANTS. Another big Obama confidence builder. By the way Obama, IN SECRET as usual, signed an executive order establishing a so-called Council of Governors. Another purely STALINIST move by MAOBAMA. This Council of Governors is to ‘provide input’ on “homeland defense | Read More »
