About Tuesday’s Loss: If The Archangel Michael Were On The Ballot, Beelzebub Would Still Have Won
Last night’s loss was destined to happen regardless whether Mitt Romney or the Archangel Michael were on the ballot. Beelzebub would still have still won.

Labor’s Last Stand Before Oblivion
Until union bosses come up with a new business model, a perpetuation of their ‘business as usual’ approach will see unions dwindle further before they become nothing more than a motley collection of government unions, motley occupiers, aging Marxists, political lobbyists, and a retirees association. And, if that’s all unions are to become, it might just be cheaper to join AARP.

So, The IBEW Really Did Put Unionization Ahead of Hurricane Recovery Efforts #ObamasKatrina
There’s been a lot of denials going on since last Friday when it came to light that the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) may have turned away non-union crews from helping in hurricane ravaged New Jersey because they did not carry union cards. Despite a denial by the union’s international president, Ed Hill, a statement made by New Jersey’s governor Chris Chistie, it turns | Read More »
Obama’s Katrina? America’s Northeast Suffers As President Puts Re-Election Ahead Of Relief
Powered by a gas-rationed generator on Saturday night, a quick glance at the Drudge Report shed little light on what many in the Northeast are experiencing first hand: Devastated communities left in the dark, thirsty New Yorkers ‘dumpster diving‘ for food, many faced with looting, fear of nightfall, and a President who, rather than leading at a time of crisis, continues his stump speeches and demonizing ordinary | Read More »
With Looting In The Unarmed Big Apple, NYC’s Meddling Mayor Pumps $1.1 Mil To Union-Backed, Anti-Gun Democrat…In Florida!
There must be some cruelly ironic joke being played on New York City’s hurricane-soaked residents. As thousands of New Yorkers still sit in the dark, unarmed, vulnerable, and worried about looters, the Big Apple’s billionaire mayor is sending $1.1 million to Florida to buy ads for union-bought, gun-control advocate and congressional candidate Val Demings. With New York having the some of the most restrictive gun | Read More »
Union Bosses’ Water Carriers: Is Obama Administration Dodging Overdue Pension Reports?
For several years now, even though problems were well documented before, union bosses have been hiding behind the current financial meltdown as a main cause for their massive pension under-funding problem. Now, it appears that the Obama Administration is helping to hide just how bad the problem is. Despite a 2010 failed attempt at getting a tax-payer bailout for union pensions, the fact is, many union pension plans | Read More »
Easy Come, Easy Go? Unions’ Suit to Kill Indiana’s Right-to-Work Law Moves Forward
Just as many Hoosiers get used to the idea of not being forced to pay union dues as a condition of employment under Indiana’s new Right-to-Work law, according to a Circuit Court Judge, a suit filed by the United Steelworkers to strike down the new law can move forward. Until earlier this year, Indiana workers who went to work at a unionized company could be | Read More »
Elizabeth Warren’s Weary Warriors: Union Bosses Fine Members For No Shows At Warren Events
It appears that one of the Democrats’ favorite ploys of paying union members to show up and rally for their candidates isn’t working for Massachusetts’ Elizabeth Warren. Instead of paying union members $50 dollars to stand in support of their candidate, as they did in 2008, union bosses are now threatening to fine union members if they fail to show up at Elizabeth Warren events. | Read More »
Open Thread: America Has Become A Society of Cannibals (aka the 47%)
With so much debate about the future direction of this nation, as we listen to Barack Obama, Democrats, union bosses, #occupiers, and Karl Marx’s other disciples from the Left make claims upon that which does not belong to them, among all that which has been written on the topic, one particular op-ed has always stood out as a beacon of clarity. American Has Become A | Read More »
UPDATED: High-School Teacher Threatens To Assault Student For Wearing Romney T-Shirt, Likens It To KKK Sheet
Racism has again raised its ugly head in this presidential election and it has filtered all the way down to the classroom level where, in Philadelphia, a high school student was threatened with assault by her geometry teacher last Friday for wearing a Mitt Romney t-shirt. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, last Friday was dress-down day for students at Charles Carroll High School in Port | Read More »
A Dangerous Sport: Obama Offers To Reimburse Companies If They Violate Federal Labor Law
Trying to ride two horses with one ass is something that is best left to movie stuntmen (or the very stupid) because, in the end, people get trampled. However, that is precisely what Barack Obama’s administration is trying to do by telling encouraging defense contractors to violate federal law. Then, as if that weren’t enough, Obama’s Office of Management and Budget is offering to use | Read More »
New Jersey SEIU Boss Exposes Himself: Why, Yes, We Do Use Union Dues To Buy Politicians
Back in July, ACORN-aficionado James O’Keefe exposed New York union bosses caught on tape showing their appreciation for the concept of taxpayer-funded “shovel ready” jobs–that is the idea of digging holes only to fill them back in and getting the government (taxpayers) to fund the make-work project. Well, Mr. O’Keefe and his hidden camera team have been at it again–this time exposing how how beholden | Read More »
With Union Strike Threat Looming, ABC Vows Presidential Debate Coverage Won’t Be Affected
While it’s not like there are no other networks airing the presidential debates between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, a union dispute may cause some minor technical difficulties of ABC’s planned coverage of the debates. A division of the red-shirted Communications Workers of America, known as NABET, has been without a contract since early 2011. Now, according to the Wall Street Journal, NABET (which is | Read More »
Union Briefs: An Assorted Array of Raids, Rats, Refs & RICO…Oh MY!
With so much to write about (and so little time), here are a few selected news stories to remind us how today’s unions are all about…well…something. Solidarity Succumbs to Economic Greed: Teamsters attempt to raid TWU at American Airlines. Back in the 1930s through the 1950s, when the American Federation of Labor (AFL) and Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO) were rival federations expanding their memberships | Read More »

Some Things Never Change: More Teamsters Arrested & Charged Under RICO
Earlier this week, arrests were made and RICO charges filed against four Boston-area Teamsters for “committing multiple acts of extortion and racketeering among other crimes.” While news of a 30-count indictment always generates a fair amount of buzz, the fact is, regardless how much money the Teamsters spend on Democrat politicians, corruption is still alive and well within Hoffa’s union. In 1988, the U.S. Department | Read More »
