    NJ’s Christie on Health & Pension Reform: We are on the precipice of disaster…

    With a staggering $66.7 billion in unfunded health care liabilities (the highest in the nation) for government workers, on top of the $53.9 billion in unfunded pension liabilities owed to those government workers, the Garden State’s fiscal ship is sinking fast. Already, New Jersey’s property taxes are the highest in the nation with the average residential property tax bill at $7,281. It is a problem | Read More »

    #Weinergate, just another example of liberal lies

    This really isn’t a post about…well…you know. However, as #Weinergate has unfolded over these past two weeks, it has provided yet another illustrative lesson in the Left’s methodology of crisis management: lie-blame-deny-obfuscate-confess. The playbook is something we’ve seen deployed too often over the years—most recently with the Left’s attacks on Paul Ryan‘s plan to reform Medicare, as they’ve thrown truth to the wolves.

    Communist Party USA Experiencing Growing Pains

    An increase in Communist Party membership here in the U.S. really isn’t all that surprising. After all, given all of the Left-Wing hate propaganda that’s been occurring for the last several years and its increasing alignment with the union movement, with growing the Party as a long-term goal, eventually their efforts would begin to pay off. However, what is somewhat surprising is the Communist Party | Read More »

    Unapologetic Public School Officials Turning Children Into Good Little Comrades

    For decades, even before the collapse of the Soviet Union, stories of collectivist indoctrination of children to be “good” members of Soviet society had been reported. Vladimir Lenin, who stated, “Give us the child for 8 years and it will be a Bolshevik forever,” knew that indoctrination was the key to having a uniformly obedient collectivist society. His successor, Josef Stalin, was even more blunt | Read More »

    Unbelievable! NLRB’s Acting General Counsel Opposes Boeing Employees’ Legal Involvement

    Last week, three Boeing employees, whose jobs are at stake due to the National Labor Relations Board’s prosecution of their employer, filed to intervene in the case. Now, just a few days later, Lafe Solomon has declared that he is opposed to their intervention in the case–even though they stand a good chance of losing their jobs due to the union and the NLRB’s actions. | Read More »

    As SoCal Braces for Big Grocery Strike, UFCW Urges Shoppers to Respect Picket Lines

    In 2003 into 2004, the United Food & Commercial Workers’ 70,000 members throughout Southern California were embroiled in a labor dispute that lasted 141 days. Now, with approximately 62,000 members and a contract that expired three months ago, it appears the UFCW may be heading down the same path. In 2003/2004, the UFCW essentially ended the dispute by accepting the same offer (or nearly the | Read More »

    The Pretense of Obama’s ‘Other’ Labor Board’s Investigation of Delta

    Let’s cut to the chase, shall we? Within the next several months (perhaps sooner), the odds are President Obama’s National Mediation Board will find that Delta Air committed unforgivable sins during multiple union election campaigns last fall, causing the unions to lose the elections.  As a result, employees at Delta will be subjected to more union elections until they—in the minds of union bosses—vote the | Read More »

    The NLRB’s Assault on Religious Liberty

    While the NLRB’s attack on the Boeing Company and its South Carolina employees may be viewed as an attack on the freedom to expand business in America, Catholic colleges are also under fire from Obama’s NLRB for not being Catholic enough. Back in January, the New York regional office of the NRLB ruled against Manhattan College’s claim that, as a religious institution, it should be | Read More »

    What is the difference between the SEIU & an armed robber?

    That’s a rhetorical question. However, after seeing this L.A. Times passage from last month, one might come to the conclusion that 1) an armed robber usually only has one victim (whereas, the SEIU has millions), 2) an average armed robber does not have politicians in his back pocket, and 3) an armed robber is more intellectually honest—at least he tells you he’s robbing you, where | Read More »

    NY Teachers’ Union & NAACP Fight to Keep African-American Kids in Failing Schools

    Let’s start with the problem: In Harlem (NY), according to the Wall Street Journal, at one elementary school, only 3% of the students perform at grade level English, and only 9% in Math. At the Columbus High School the graduation rate is an abysmal 40%, compared to a citywide average of 63%. These figures are from only two of 22 failing schools that need to | Read More »

    Boeing’s Charleston Employees Enter the Fight to Save Their Jobs From The Obama NLRB

    It must be maddening to have the government siding with your former union to destroy your jobs. Yet, that is what is occurring with the Machinists’ union (IAM) having filed a charge against Boeing for opening its second 787 assembly line in Charleston, SC, a plant that used to be represented by the same union, and the union-controlled National Labor Relations Board going along with | Read More »

    Big Government Spenders, You Should Have Read Congressman Dan’s Sign…

    Apparently, Dr. Myron Gutmann and Dr. Hillary Anger Elfenbein never stopped by Congressman Benishek’s [R-MI] office to see his sign… Or, perhaps, the doctors thought Dr. Dan wasn’t serious in trying to correct America’s careening into the fiscal abyss. Whatever the case, on Thursday, when the House Subcommittee on Research and Science Education held a hearing on Social, Behavioral and Economic Science Research: Oversight of | Read More »

    “Official Time” or Unofficial Scam? Your tax dollars are being used for union business.

    One would think that, when union members pay union dues, the money would pay for the time their union representatives spend representing them on the job. Well, that’s not always the case. Both, in the private sector and the public sector, it is not unheard of for an employer to agree to pay for the union representatives’ time spent in talking with members to drum | Read More »

    As Unions, OFA Take Credit For NY-26, The Right Can Learn From The Loss

    The election results of last week’s special election in NY-26 were 47%-D 43%-R 9%-Tea and 1%-Green. A disappointment for the GOP, of course, that has made the Left gleeful in their gloating over their victory, even going so far as calling it a ‘political earthquake.’ However, in looking at it from afar, it’s natural to see how Republican Jane Corwin lost the race and her | Read More »

    About Those Thousands Who Went to Joplin This Weekend…

    If you watched the news on Sunday, you may have seen President Obama (dubbed the “Healer in Chief” by HuffPo) pay a campaign visit to Joplin, Missouri where residents are still recovering from the horrific tornado that ripped apart the town a little more than a week ago. There were reportedly thousands that poured into Joplin on Sunday. However, while some may have come to | Read More »
