First-Degree Attempted Murder Charge for Botched Coat Hanger Abortion
We live in a culture of death. Violence is an almost nightly feature on the news, and we remember the dates of specific tragedies. I’m not so sure it has numbed us, but it certainly has made us expect the horror. From a general perspective, we might feel a lull in between violent events, but actually, brutal murder happens every day by way of abortion. | Read More »
Foiled Again! UAW fails (for now) to strip VW employees of secret-ballot election
No-Vote Unionization. Given their very public (and political) push for the hallucinogenically-devised scheme known as “card check,” if unions had their way, employees’ right to vote in secret-ballot elections on whether or not to be unionized would be eliminated. Although card check failed as a matter of public policy several years ago, unions still often try to push their way into companies without employees voting | Read More »
Conservatives Must Oppose Bob Corker’s Capitulation
The video above explains why President Obama’s deal with Iran is so bad. Made worse is ‘s effort to ratify the deal through a perversion of the constitutional process. Bob Corker is a little man who chairs the impotent Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The two traits have conspired to require him to feel relevant and stretch his little legs. Back when Republicans were debating how | Read More »

Only A Bully Argues The Debate Is Over
“Shut Up.” He Explained. – Ring Lardner I’ve noticed something worse than usual about the Left of late. They are more brazen and ham-handed in their efforts to silence their detractors. They don’t outwit or out-debate them. They just explain that the debate is over before it is ever really allowed to commence in the first place. How does one identify defamatory speech in Post-modern | Read More »

The author of the article says Alexander isn’t to blame: Recently, I’ve seen a lot of misinformation about the budget | Read More »

Last Thursday, Bernd Osterloh, the head of the Volkswagen’s global works council and a member of the company’s supervisory board stated that expansion of VW’s Chattanooga plant would not hinge on unionization

Why Doesn’t The UAW Want A Secret-Ballot Election At VW?
It is a long-standing precedent that unions are legally allowed to lie
to workers in order to get their support–and lie they do.
Take, for example, Carol Wilson, a Volkswagen employee in Chattanooga who was misled into signing a UAW authorization card.
