"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


    NLRB Sues Arizona & South Dakota Over Secret-Ballot Amendments

    On the heels of President Obama’s union-controlled National Labor Relations Board complaint telling the Boeing Company where it should locate its second 787 assembly plant, the NLRB has now decided to sue two out of the four states where voters audaciously passed constitutional amendments last fall requiring secret-ballot elections on unionization.  Previously, the NLRB had threatened to sue all four states. However, those plans were | Read More »

    Union Leaders Teach Labor Studies Courses on Communism, Violence, Industrial Sabotage & Frying Cats

    The University of Missouri has an expansive $1.9 billion enterprise with an operating budget of $500 million which, according to its website, 37%  comes through state appropriations. While the University’s Institute of Labor Studies may only be a small fraction of its budget, one must wonder why tax dollars are being used to fund a program that espouses Communism, teaches tactics in industrial sabotage (including | Read More »

    Californication: Unions Ride Roughshod Over Jerry Brown

    California unions spent tens of millions to put retread Governor Jerry Brown back into office. So, it is not all that surprising that he is, once again, doing California’s taxpayers no favors by letting the unions ride roughshod over him in recent budget negotiations. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Brown recently walked into budget negotiations with six different unions with saving $308 million in | Read More »

    Taking on The Establishment: You can’t win if you don’t play.

    Don’t get mad. Get motivated. Then…WIN. Our nation is drowning in debt. There are those within both political parties that, rather than taking the much-needed corrective action, seem determined—whether from their hunger for political power, their ineptitude, or just their own willingness to compromise to score points—to continue seeing this nation falter. They would rather publicly give the appearance of fighting while, privately, playing “let’s make | Read More »

    Behind the Obama Labor Board’s Bashing of Boeing is a Case Full of Irony & Union Failure

    On Wednesday, when President Obama’s union-controlled National Labor Relations Board issued a complaint against the Boeing Company for making a sound business decision to “dual source” its 787 production, it was another blatant example of a government agency run amok. However, while most of the nuts and bolts behind the dispute were detailed here, there are several other, more intricate details behind the NLRB’s legally | Read More »

    SEIU Plans Nationwide, Madison-Style, Class Warfare Protest Movement

    After some quiet time following last year’s departure of union bosses Andy Stern and Anna Burger, it appears the purple behemoth known as Service Employees International Union, has been quietly plotting its own Egyptian-style revolution. Given the ever-shrinking private-sector union membership ranks, as well as the realization that its political influence has shrunk as well, the SEIU’s plan is apparently to engage in a class-warfare based | Read More »

    In Shot Heard Around Business World, Obama’s Labor Board Issues Complaint Against Boeing

    On Wednesday, President Obama’s union-controlled National Labor Relations Board issued a complaint against the Boeing Company that, if ruled in the union and NLRB’s favor, may prove to have far-reaching consequences across the American business landscape. Ultimately, the outcome to this case will state whether or not America has, in fact, become entirely hostile to business (and the jobs they provide). The complaint was issued | Read More »

    AFSCME Boss Explains California’s Suicidal Tendencies…

    For a state that had so much going for it, California is sinking into the depths of its own self-made depression. Businesses are fleeing in droves (including 70 more since January), the state has a projected $42 billion budget gap and is already awash in unfunded liabilities (the teachers’ pension fund alone is $56 billion underfunded), and human kind has taken backseat to the survival of a | Read More »

    Is Obama Planning to Impose DISCLOSE Despite FEC, Congress & the Supreme Court?

    Having launched his $1 billion election campaign a mere two weeks ago, Barack Obama appears to be moving quickly to try to further tilt the political landscape to favor his union cronies through an Executive Order that implements certain portions of the failed DISCLOSE Act. As first reported by Pajamas Media, the White House is circulating  a draft Executive Order (in full below) to agencies | Read More »

    One Year’s Worth Of Union Dues Could Support 265,447 U.S. Workers For A Year

    Union bosses have been engaging in class warfare for so long now that it’s become standard for the media to echo the meme without challenge. An example of such mainstream Marxism is in today’s Bloomberg piece entitled ‘Runaway CEO Pay’ Could Support 102,000 U.S. Jobs, AFL-CIO Says. Bloomberg’s piece relies heavily on the AFL-CIO’s Executive Pay Watch, which was set up years ago to conduct a | Read More »

    Those Union Bosses & Their Hypocritical, Union-Busting Ways…

    Though it is often hidden, covered up, or excused, every now and then, union bosses give the public a glimpse of what they really think about unions when it comes to their own workers being unionized. In fact, it’s really not that uncommon for union bosses to engage in the same so-called “union-busting” activities they like to accuse companies (and Republicans) of doing. Last year, | Read More »

    Virginia’s Big Dig? Union Protesters Disrupt Congressman’s Press Conference

    On Monday, members of the Laborers International Union of North America (LIUNA) protested a press conference held by Rep. Frank Wolf [R-VA] due to his opposition to the building of an underground Metrorail station at Dulles Airport that he says will cost $300 million more than an above ground station. The press conference was scheduled to urge the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority to overturn their | Read More »

    Christie Unveils Plan to Save NJ Taxpayers on Government Workers’ Health Care

    While private-sector workers have been paying anywhere from 20 to 30 percent of their health care costs for years, government workers have, traditionally, had better health care plans at far lesser costs—all at taxpayers’ expense. In New Jersey, which is facing crippling budget deficits and nearly insurmountable debt, state workers currently pay 1.5 percent of their salary and about 8 percent of the cost of | Read More »

    Too Late To Ask For A Refund, Obama Has Union Bosses & Other Lefty Loons Feeling Double Crossed

    There must be some pretty cynical political strategists inside the White House who, all knowingly, believe that defecating on the deli sandwiches of the Democrats’ core constituencies before 2012 is an okay thing to do because—Hey! What’re they going to do?…Support the Republicans? Nevertheless, while union bosses, liberal allies and even African Americans publicly put on a happy face about President Obama, they’re privately grousing over a | Read More »

    Ticking Time Bomb: Ongoing Labor Dispute Shows the Problem With Union Pensions

    In Orange, CT, there have been two arrests over the last few weeks (the most recent on Saturday afternoon) in front of Dichello Distributors, where there is an ongoing labor battle between Teamsters, Local 443 and the company. The issue is over the company’s desire to exit the Teamsters’ grossly underfunded multi-employer pension plan, as well as asking union members to pay 10% of their | Read More »
