    Sore Union Losers at Delta Air Lines

    There’s big money at stake for unions at Delta Air Lines, Inc—over $22 million in annual union dues. As the only (primarily) union-free major airline (Delta’s pilots are unionized), unions have long targeted the Atlanta-based carrier.  However, now, with the National Mediation Board members being controlled by unions*, as well as Delta’s recent merger with unionized Northwest Airlines, the unions have declared it open hunting | Read More »

    Half Time in America: The Most Important Game is Still a Toss-up

    Here’s the latest, if you’re just tuning in… New Orleans Saints over the Dallas Cowboys: 30-27 New England Patriots pounced on the Detroit Lions: 45-24 Cincinatti Bengals vs. New York Jets: still 0 to 0 (as of this writing) However, for the most important game of all, the battle for America, it’s half time and it will be a toss-up until the end: [via The | Read More »

    Another Atrocity: TSA Agents Molest Three-Year Old

    On September 11, 2001, 19 men killed nearly 3,000 innocent men, women and children. All of the killers were of Middle Eastern descent and in their 20s. Not having been born on September 11th, this little boy is undoubtedly too young to know of the death and despair that occurred on that day. He is still probably too young to learn about it even now. | Read More »

    Toxic Toys, a Dead Giraffe & the Teamsters

    So, what really killed Tweet the Giraffe? The Teamsters are ramping up their campaign aimed at taking down Toys R Us.  The union famous for its horses’ head logo and thuggish tactics is teaming up with “environmental justice organizations, consumer advocates, public health professionals, parents, children’s health activists” to use the Holiday Season to attack giant retailer Toys R Us and Babies R Us for allegedly | Read More »

    The U.S. Police State Outrages Continue: Why is the TSA strip searching little boys?

    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated… ______________________ You may have heard about Janet Napolitano’s blue shirts forcing a cancer-surviving flight attendant to remove her prosthetic breast, or the woman whose pants the TSA’s hand went down: “I was shaking and crying when I left that room” Moroney | Read More »

    Outrageous! Iowa’s Lame Duck Guv Slams State With $200 Million Union Deal

    Iowa’s outgoing Democrat Governor Chet Culver gave his union buddies at AFSCME a true ‘sweetheart deal’ on Friday—a two-year contract worth $200 million taken from Iowa’s taxpayers. The funny thing is, Culver didn’t even bother to negotiate a better deal for the state’s taxpayers. In fact, Culver didn’t bother to negotiate at all.  Instead, Culver took what was asked for by AFSCME and put it | Read More »

    TSA Unionization: A $30 Million Annual Gift to Union Bosses

    When we have an administration more concerned about rewarding its union cronies than the U.S. Constitution (see ObamaCare for reference), giving union bosses access to the wallets of TSOs was only a matter of time. Now, the Transportation Security Agency’s blue shirts who are doing Janet Napolitiano’s bidding frisking, groping, molesting and seemingly sexually assaulting the American public, are about to get license for further abuse—a union | Read More »

    Where Do All Those Union Dues Go?

    There’s been a lot written lately on how much money union bosses spent on the mid-term elections.  While the hundreds of millions spent may seem astounding, it really is just a drop in the bucket considering the roughly $28 billion that (public and private-sector) unions rake in every year in union dues. For union members (and other interested people) who are interested in seeing how | Read More »

    Napolitano’s Police State: TSA Retaliates Against Tyner for Asserting His Rights

    So, let’s get this straight: It’s okay for the TSA to grope nuns, but Muslim women are exempt (nothing beyond the head and neck). We cannot profile potential terrorists, but it’s okay to molest three-year olds (except we won’t call it molest because it’s the government doing it). Muslim men won’t go through body imaging machines, but it’s okay to grope non-Muslims’ genitals. And, just | Read More »

    ObamaCare: Union Waiver Favors Pile Up

    Union bosses fought tooth and nail to nationalize America’s health care—even, in many cases, to the detriment of their own members. Now, instead of chewing on and swallowing what they bit off, unions are getting waivers to the very plan that they shoved down everyone else’s throat. Here’s the list of known unions* getting ObamaCare waivers:

    The Touchy TSA: It’s not sexual assault when it’s the government…

    As a follow up to this morning’s post on the TSA’s torpedoing of the Constitution comes this disturbing story [via Drudge] of an incident in San Diego. On Saturday, a traveler named John Tyner was planning to go pheasant hunting in South Dakota when he encountered a cadre blue-shirted of TSA gropers. Unbeknownst to the blue shirts, Tyner had his cell phone on record. Other | Read More »

    Public Protests as TSA Torpedoes Constitution

    They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. ~ Benjamin Franklin ________________ Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano’s Let’s Make a Deal approach to keeping America’s airports secure isn’t generating too many fans. Perhaps it’s because the choices given are so insulting to the rights enjoyed by a free people: Door #1: Have nude pictures of | Read More »

    They Did It Again! When Unions End Up Representing Replacement Workers

    In February 1995, having the occasion to visit a picket line in Virginia where union members had been on strike for 11 months, was an enlightening experience. Having only left the union movement a few years earlier, it was that strike in Virginia where my belief that today’s unions are but a facade—union in name only—was confirmed. In that small Virginia town, union members had gone | Read More »

    Armageddon Averted: Democrats & Unions Get Temporary Reprieve from Reality

    Union bosses and their Democrat cronies are breathing a collective sigh of relief.  On Wednesday, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) gave them something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving and they must be positively giddy. As opposed to reality biting on December 15th, as was originally scheduled, FASB just threw a temporary lifeline to companies with union multi-employer pension fund liabilities. Last month, we told | Read More »

    Criminalizing Conversation: Unions using the Department of Labor to chill employer speech

    This may be a bit wonky, but if you are a union-free, private-sector employer with two or more employees, there’s something sinister coming down the pike from Washington that you’ll probably want to know about. Any day now, the union-controlled Department of Labor will be issuing new rules interpreting a little-known 1959 law called the Landrum-Griffin Act (officially, the Labor-Management Reporting & Disclosure Act).
