So, about that union job security…
Talk about a rocky relationship ending badly… First, the union boss scolded his members for sharing information with their co-workers about what was going on behind closed doors at the bargaining table. Then, a couple of weeks ago, some individual(s) beat up the union boss. Now, things are going to get a lot more tense in East Alton, Illinois. On Wednesday, after workers represented by the | Read More »
EXPOSED! America’s Democracy traded away for a slice of pizza!
It is hard to believe that, when America’s founding fathers established our democratic republic, they could have envisioned it could be so easily manipulated and corrupted so cheaply. However, to Democrats and their union handlers, the ends apparently do justify the means when it comes to transforming America. America’s democratic system for electing our representatives is supposed to be a model for the rest of the | Read More »
Harry Reid: Where are the jobs?
[via Big Government] As you watch this, you’ll almost hear purple heads popping…
People are gonna lose their jobs over this…
The postman delivering the mail this afternoon is long gone. Good thing. At least he didn’t hear the expletives that were thrown out to anyone within earshot as the envelope from Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield was opened and the 2011 rate increase was read. It appears that, rather than making health care affordable as was promised, ObamaCare is taking our health insurance costs even | Read More »
Why Are Casino Bosses Teaming With Union Bosses in Funding an Anti-Tea Party Group?
Casinos have contributed hundreds of thousands to Senator Harry Reid over the years. Regardless of your political views, it is understandable. Unfortunately, that’s how the game is played. In addition, given Reid’s long ties to the casino industry in Nevada (Reid was Nevada gaming commissioner from 1977 to1981), he has undoubtedly built a few relationships and loyalties up and down the Vegas strip. A back | Read More »

Who’s Guarding the Cookie Jar? On November 3rd, will it be back to business-as-usual for union bosses?
With the miderm election wrapping up next week, win or lose, union bosses will be heading back to their offices and settling in to their normal routine of plotting, lobbying, visiting the White House, targeting employees and antagonizing employers, as well as finding ways to nationalize a few more industries and kill some more jobs. In other words, it will be back to business as | Read More »
Nevada Secretary of State: ‘I’m not going to stand for any fraud…’
Amid reports in the Washington Examiner on Tuesday that some voting machines in Clark County had Senator Harry Reid’s name already checked and, further, that Clark County’s voting machine technicians are represented by the SEIU, the Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller says everything is A-OK. Secretary of State Ross Miller said today there have been no complaints filed with his office about suspicious voter activity | Read More »
If 2+2=4, when does S+E+I+U=RICO?
Isn’t it amazing that, whenever there is some sort of controversy involving voter registration fraud, or other election shenanigans, somewhere lurking in the shadows is the Purple Hand of the SEIU? Of course, it could be merely a coincidence…if one believes in coincidences. Or, it could be something bigger, and much more nefarious. Over the past several weeks, we’ve been cataloging some of the “coincidences” | Read More »
Florida’s Character Assassins: The AFL-CIO, those ‘outlaw’ bikers and Allen West
Union lackey and former lobbyist Ron Klein [D] and the rest of his left-wing sycophants hate Allen West, the Republican candidate running for Congress in Florida’s 22nd District. He is everything they fear in a candidate from the Right and represents everything they are opposed to. Allen West is a pro-military, pro-freedom, and he’s a man of principle. He does not believe union bosses should be cutting | Read More »
The $3 Trillion Shakedown: The Democrat-Government Union Ponzi Scheme
They have declared war on you, the American taxpayer. They have found the legal means to reach into your pocket to feather their nests, while costing you and your children and your children’s children trillions. They’ve been doing it for 50 years. Yesterday, we posted the simplicity of how to begin dismantling the stranglehold government unions have on America. Step One: Understand the threat…
This is STUNNING: SEIU’s Racism Rears Its Ugly Head Again
One paragraph in a story about a Chicago politician teaming up with the SEIU to get out the vote on November 2nd says a lot about the SEIU and its views of African Americans. It is one thing for the SEIU to send in paid (and unpaid) operatives to get people out to vote, it is quite another for them to target a race because | Read More »
Democrat Bob Etheridge Still Can’t Answer Simple Questions
Democrat Bob Etheridge [NC-2] seems to have a problem with questions. He just cannot find it in himself to answer them. When students asked him last year if he supported the Obama Agenda, Bob Etheridge assaulted them. During a recent debate, Republican Renee Ellmers challenged the Obama Agenda-loving Etheridge* and asked how he believed the federal government could handle one-sixth of the economy better than | Read More »
Viva la Union? Breaking the Stranglehold of Government Unions Before It’s Too Late.
Last week, it was revealed that the government workers’ union AFSCME is spending $87.5 million to try to keep Democrats from being defeated on November 2nd. Interestingly, some people seemed shocked by this. They really shouldn’t be though.

Torn Between Two Lovers: Democrat Stephanie Herseth Sandlin (SD)
You know, one of the (many) problems with Washington is that all-too-often politicians are too easily bought by special interests and end up selling out their constituents (and America). Historically, it’s been a bi-partisan disease that goes something like this: 1. Person decides to go into politics. 2. Person gets elected and goes to Washington. 3. Newly-minted politician meets lobbyists who wine and dine said | Read More »
