As Debt Commission Plan Fails, Unions Have a Solution: Spend MORE money!
It’s official: Obama’s debt reduction commission has failed. Not surprisingly, former SEIU boss Andy Stern was among those who voted against the plan. The closely-followed US debt commission failed to pass its deficit reduction plan Friday, once more pushing back hard choices about America’s ballooning national debt. Only 11 of the group’s 18 members backed the plan, three short of the 14 required to send | Read More »
The Baseball Bat Behind Obama’s Federal Pay Freeze Gimmick
If you’ve passed through Milwaukee airport recently, you may have noticed a table in the center of the terminal with a man sitting amidst a bunch of union paraphernalia. The man, a union organizer with the American Federation of Government Employees is apparently set up day after day collecting support and signatures as part of AFGE’s drive to unionize the TSA blue shirts. Unlike the | Read More »
Let’s Build a Railroad to Nowhere, For the Sake of Building a Railroad to Nowhere.
Never mind that there is no legitimate business need. Forget the fact that it will spend billions in taxpayer’ money without any economic benefits (except for the union workers who will be paid for the make-work jobs). There is no plan, not even an idea for a plan. In sum, the BlueGreen Alliance (that coalition of unions and environmentalists) are calling for a new railroad | Read More »
Marxists Meet, Part III: Marxist Organizer Raps for Violent Revolution & Firing Squads
This is the third in a three-part series. To read the first two, go here and here. ________________ The previous two posts about the Workers World Party National Conference, which was held in New York on November 13th and 14th, involved calls to seize property and fight for worldwide socialism, as well as the use of race to accomplish the overthrow of the U.S. capitalist system. | Read More »
Marxists Meet, Part II: Dante’s Inferno — The Marxist Plan to Use Race to Overthrow the U.S.
This is the second in a three-part series of posts. To read Part One, go here. ______________________ Not long ago, for someone to say that Marxists were using race to foster their socialist revolution, Lefties would rise up in chorus-like fashion and scream “McCarthyism!” Now, however, rather than dredging up a name that few young people today know, the Leftists cry “racism!” Yet, with the | Read More »
Marxists Meet, Part I: UFCW Rep. Calls for Seizing Private Property & World Socialism
Most people realize that the electoral victories on November 2nd were but a brief respite in the battle for America. What many do not know, however, it that a mere eleven days after the GOP swept the House of Representatives, the Workers World Party held its annual conference on November 13th and 14th in New York City to discuss the fight for worldwide socialism and | Read More »
Karma: SEIU Kicks Members’ Kids to the Curb
You remember how ObamaCare was all about making health care more affordable and protecting the most vulnerable, right? And, surely you remember how much money and resources (i.e., members’ dues) the purple behemoth known as the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) put into the fight for ObamaCare—even going so far as (allegedly) beating Kenneth Gladney at a St. Louis town hall meeting. Heck, it was | Read More »
The TSA Opted Out of Opt Out Day
As a follow-up to Erick’s earlier post regarding the theater that has become TSA’s airport security, a Right-Wing Housewife sent us along a report (and video) from an Opt-Out Day protest in Phoenix: While we were there urging the public to opt out for five hours, the line moved very fast. What we observed was that not one person was asked to go through the | Read More »
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 »
