"There can be no compromise on basic principles. There can be no compromise on moral issues. There can be no compromise on matters of knowledge, of truth, of rational conviction."

"There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil....In any compromise between food and poison, it is only death that can win. In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit." Ayn Rand


    Who’s the Boss? AFL-CIO Afilliate Seeking to Unionize Office of Management & Budget

    Actor-Activist Danny Glover is on the Wrong Side of SEIU’s Forced Dues Debate

    It’s a dispute that has dragged on for months and the Service Employees International Union has struck over the issue twice—once in February and again in March—in order to try and get the hospital to bend to its wishes. It’s not higher wages or better benefits the union is after. No, it’s something much more important to the union—the ability to require all employees to | Read More »

    None Dare Call it Hypocrisy: The Left’s Outrage Over Teaching Free-Enterprise in Universities

    For the last few years, America has been slowly awakened to the level of Marxism taught in American classrooms. From the of taking public school students to Cuba and the NEA’s reccommendation of Saul Alinsky to the most recent revelation of the University of Missouri’s “Introduction to Labor Studies” taught by two Marxists who, in addition to allegedly giving a Communist organizer two hours of | Read More »

    Why Rand Paul’s Right to Compare Universal Healthcare to “Slavery”

    Whenever someone uses the term “slavery,” you can almost hear Lefties’ heads exploding–they get so apopaleptic. Immediately, they go into a frenzy, break open their Alinsky manuals, and attempt to ridicule the person making the point. An example of this occurred just yesterday, when Sen. Rand Paul [R-KY] stated that those who believe that health care is a “right” believe in slavery. Yep. He used | Read More »

    Harry Reid Comes Clean: NLRB Acts As Check on Employers and *Employees*

    We’ve long said that the union-controlled National Labor Relations Board is undermining both employer and employee rights. Regardless of the current scuffle over Boeing, the most shameful aspect of the NLRB’s doing union’s bidding is the manner in which the NLRB is undermining the very employee rights it was purportedly established to protect. For a listing of examples where the NLRB has undermined employer and | Read More »

However, what is truly appalling is the fact that the American Federation of Teachers is protecting the teacher’s | Read More »

    Hypocrite Harry Reid’s High Horse Must’ve Kicked Him in the Head

    General Electric’s Jeff Immelt–A Uniter, Not a Divider

    There’s been a lot written over the last couple of years about the Obama administration‘s crony capitalism. Other than ‘spooky dude’ George Soros, there is, perhaps, no better embodiment of an Obama crony in capitalist’s clothing than General Electric’s Jeff Immelt. With Immelt sitting at the right hand of Obama and GE’s ability to avoid paying taxes, Immelt has had the distinction of being able | Read More »

    The Hypocrisy of Government Motors and the UAW

    With the federal government owning 33% of General Motors and the United Auto Workers owning another 17.5%, one would think that the words General Motors and exploiting workers would be incongruous in the same sentence. Yet, it appears the Obama administration and its union cronies own a car company that is as exploitive as the worst of those capitalistic, private-sector companies they are always castigating. As | Read More »

    The Next President of The United States Will Be…

    The first GOP debate in South Carolina of the presidential election cycle taking place in South Carolina won’t be a game-changer for who will be the next President of the United States. Even though the “big names” are boycotting too busy to attend the debate (which is a likely mistake, given the opportunity to opine on the current fracas over the union-controlled NLRB’s attacks on | Read More »

    When Unions Stick It To Taxpayers: The Problem With Binding Arbitration

    In addition to effectively eliminating secret-ballot elections, one of the other main components of the currently sidelined (and hallucinogenically-named) Employee Free Choice Act is “binding arbitration“—the process of letting an outside arbitrator dictate wages and benefits of a business or organization. In the public sector, where states have collective bargaining laws, certain states like Pennsylvania impose binding arbitration on municipalities when contract negotiations fail to produce | Read More »

    The Union-Controlled NLRB Strikes Again!

    Before going into the another, fairly-recent example of a union-run bureaucracy run amok, let’s review some of President Obama’s union-controlled NLRB’s actions to date: Prosecuting an employer for opting to open a non-union assembly plant Suing states whose voters prefer secret ballots over card check Finding an employer guilty of unfair labor practices for not letting off-duty workers of a contractor on to the employer’s | Read More »
