Those Pesky Unions!

There are few things that drive top-hatted monopoly men more crazy than a skinny unioner with their demand to enter the middle class, excel at their job, and get paid a fair wage like some greedy fox stealing rabbits out of your own personal hen house.In case you haven’t guessed yet, I am adamantly pro-union. There are some silly things that have demanded, and there are some silly things that are now law, like 15 dollars an hour for fast-food workers.… [Read more]

CPAC 2013: ‘Crazy birds’ Flock

“If standing for the Constitution, standing for liberty, standing for conservative values makes one a wacko bird … then I am pleased that birds of a feather flock together.”  – Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Little Havana)

Viewed as a 2016 rising star, the freshman senator from Florida accomplished in one short speech, calling liberals “freeloaders,” what unsuccessful 2012 Presidential wannabe Mitt “Mitt WHO?”… [Read more]

Late-Night Sneak Attack Voting In Question

The state that is home to the ‘city that never sleeps’ has an interesting new piece of legislation submitted for consideration. A few days ago, New York Senate Bill #S03412 – which seeks to prohibit lawmakers’ taking votes on legislation after 9pm and before 9am – was put forth and is now pending senate investigations and action by the government operations committee.… [Read more]

Scott Walker: Only 282,148 jobs short of creating 250,000

I am fortunate enough to be on the E-update list from the Desk of Scott Walker. It’s been illuminating. Good times.

Now, grant you, Scott Walker was not recalled; on the other hand, Dems regained control of the Senate chamber. And in better news, even as Wisconsinites were re-electing Scott Walker, President Obama won over Romney in the exit polls.… [Read more]

How Was it For You?

Scott Walker and the Koch brothers. Just because BIG MONEY won the governor’s office, it doesn’t mean that it always has to be this way. Pay attention, and then get out and vote; NOW is the time. … [Read more]

An Open Letter to the DNC Re: Scott Walker

Dear DNC:

Have you lost your f-in’ collective minds? I mean, WTF?!? Were you unaware that a potential watershed election was going on in Wisconsin? In case you were ignorant to that fact, we had a real opportunity to pick off perhaps the most ideologically extreme governor in the country, and we blew it. Since you either acted with egregious incompetence, or you were light on requisite information (yeah, right), let me characterize the depths of your misguidance.… [Read more]

The Lesser of Two Evils, For the Best

Why is it that certain groups of voters seem to consistently vote against their own interests? The results of the Wisconsin recall seem to be quite the claptrap for all of us who hoped that the political great awakening, which, after all, started in Madison, would lead to something resembling measurable change. Scott Walker has held on, and though the Democrats have taken the house, the overhaul of repressive labor legislation seems now a pipe dream.… [Read more]

State of the (Labor) Union

Though unions remain an American fixture, they are in a state of decline. They are very much in the news these days and the stories are often not flattering or encouraging — but, of course, we know that when only one side of a story is presented it means the view may be clouded by the storyteller’s vision.… [Read more]
