Union Members Don’t Even Trust Union
The New York City carpenters union has been in trouble with the law for many decades. Organized crime has been endemic with the union for a long time and union chief after union chief has gone to jail over the ties and other corruption. Even shop stewards have gotten into the corruption game with four recently convicted on charges of fraud, conspiracy or bribetaking. It’s | Read More »
Obama gets tough with California
Noticed this on Drudge. It’s the LA Times’ most viewed story today, even though it’s not close to the top story on their front page. You think Californians might be worried? Another example of Obama strongarming his opponents. So much for state’s rights. Oh, and just to complete the trifecta, the wage cuts that Obama wants restored are to workers in the healthcare union. http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-health-cuts8-2009may08,0,4592200.story | Read More »

The Association of Community Activists for Reform Now (ACORN) is still racking up indictments and convictions for voter fraud across the nation.

Labor Shying from Supporting New Dem Specter?
Andy Stern, president of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) appears to be warning his membership that there is no lock on allegiance for Arlen Specter even though he has recently jumped the GOP ship for the Democrat Party. On May 3, Stern used his twitter account to praise Congressman Joe Sestak, a possible 2010 opponent for Specter for the Democratic Party nomination for Penn. | Read More »
Union Campaign To Destroy Grocery Chain
The United Food and Commercial Workers union (UFCW) has engaged in a guerrilla war to destroy Arizona based Bashas’ Food Stores and the grocer has about had it with the lies and underhanded attacks. So, this week Bashas sent out a mailer to the citizens of the metro Phoenix area to try to re-direct the PR war to a more equal footing. The union has | Read More »
ACORN Excising Union Ties?
OK, why did the corruption plagued Association for Community Activists for Reform Now (ACORN) suddenly and quietly delete from its website its ties with the corruption plagued Service Employees International Union (SEIU)? The American Spectator’s Matthew Vadum found the strange deletion of a photo showing SEIU president Andy Stern standing in support of ACORN from February of 2002. The ACORN site was also scrubbed of | Read More »
Obama Reverses Rule, Gives Unions Cover for Corruption
Well, we can’t say no one saw this one coming, but Obama has turned back rules that had been put in place to force unions to be more transparent in their financial reporting. These rules were meant to stop union fraud, theft, and embezzlement but in an effort to pay back his supporters, Obama has turned these rules back so that unions can find it | Read More »
Card Check: Seeing Unicorns and Rainbows in Hades
The New York Times is attempting to spin gold from straw, telling us unicorns are real, expecting the Tooth Fairy to bring a windfall. At least, that is what it seems if we are to believe the Times’ fantasy card check union story from April 20. You see, the Times believes that an overwhelming anti-union vote held via secret ballot is proof that card check | Read More »
The Corruption of Card Check: Ohio Union FAKES Member’s Signature Cards
One of the more objectionable features of the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) is the card check feature wherein a union can simply gather publicly signed cards by employees agreeing to become unionized, thereby eliminating the secret vote for the workers. Opponents say this process is ripe for union abuse leaving workers open to any sort of intimidation and quashing their vote of conscience. If | Read More »
Just Some Budget Cuts!
The Prim Minster of the United Socialist State Of America wants to cut 100 billion dollars from his budget. First of all that is pretty big of you seeing it isn’t even your money. But seeing it is my money I have come up with a few budget cuts of my own. 1) Don’t fly your own private pizza maker from Chicago to Washington. You | Read More »
Union Agitates To Force State to Borrow $ From Lottery
The California State lottery is apparently in the purview of the state’s employees union, the Service Employees International Union. At least it is as far as the SEIU is concerned. Proving once again that unions think everything in the world is their business, the California SEIU has donated $300,000 to Proposition 1C, a ridiculous plan that would empower the state capitol at Sacramento to “borrow” | Read More »
Union Tries to Steal Credit Over Somali Pirates
Unions try to steal credit for the efforts of the American crew hijacked by Somali pirates. Unions had nothing at all to do with this situation. Yet they are trying to steal the spotlight. I guess we shouldn’t be surprised. After all, union theft is common, isn’t it?
Unions Going After Wal-Mart Again
Most lefties claim that “no” means “no,” but not where it concerns unions that have lost the organizing argument over and over again. We can see that refusal to listen to the workers in the case of Unions vs. Wal-Mart. Repeatedly Wal-Mart workers have generally refused to unionize, yet instead of taking that as an answer, the unions continue to push. And they are at | Read More »
Union Thugs Admit Workers Hate Them, Only Government Force Expands Unions
Herold Meyerson of the Washington Post is a not a very good columnist. But he is a great ad copy writer that should be working on Madison Avenue. Oh, I won’t say that all ad copy is filled with lies, but if lies sell then Meyerson would be the best of them all. Anyone that reads his April 7 pro-union column can only come away | Read More »
Who the Heck Elected YOU?
Who the Heck Elected YOU, anyway? Whether it be among friends or family, we’ve all heard that phrase tossed about by someone who found his pet idea left by the wayside. It’s a question of “official” authority, in most cases. Say your friends get together for a movie, say you make a film choice and everyone begins to agree. But there’s always that one guy | Read More »
