  • Union Sticks It to Hostess and Leaves Workers Jobless

    Realville, USA ^ | Nov 16, 2012 | Ombud
    I guess there was a time when unions did some good. I know my great grandfather was a big supporter of them, but frankly I can't see where they do anything good at all anymore. From the time I was a kid, all I've ever understood about them was that they're associated with organized crime, and they're physically violent and proud of it. But over the last couple of years I've learned a little bit more, and I have to say I'm not at all enthusiastic about what I've seen. First it was SEIU union thugs tossing beatdowns at...

  • Papa John's CEO Should Take a Pay Cut, Not Lay Off Workers (New Meme from the Left?)

    US News and World Report ^ | November 16, 2012 | Leslie Marshall
    Papa John's CEO John Schnatter is going to cut his workers' hours, lay off workers, and increase the price of his pizzas by 11 to 14 cents. Why? Because the president was re-elected. More specifically, due to Obamacare. And he is not alone. Walmart is cutting hours, as is Denny's, and some other larger franchises like Red Lobster, Olive Garden, etc. As with the companies mentioned above, those on the right want to blame the president, Democrats, Obamacare, etc.—yet they had layoffs or planned them as far back as 2009 and 2010. Were they all clairvoyant? Did they all know...
  • TV Station KOB Smears Israel, Distorts Truth About Hamas Terrorism Against Israel

    War to Mobilize Democracy ^ | 11/16/2012 | netWMD Staff
    A local television station, KOB-TV, posted a "news" story today entitled, "Local group to protest U.S. aid to Israel in light of Gaza bombings." Just look at the loaded wording of the title. From KOB's standpoint, Israel is the sole perpetrator of bombings against Gaza. KOB makes no mention of the fact that Gaza is ruled by terrorists whom are constantly attacking Israel. This was not a news story at all; it was pure opinion, and a complete distortion of fact -- anti-Israeli and possibly anti-Semitic. This is the entire article from KOB: A local group will meet Friday at...

  • Twinkie ad on Ebay attacking Monetary Policy & Obamacare

    It seems as though the Twinkie may be a new type of currency as you can break them down into smaller denominations, they are finite and collectible. I went on Ebay to see about buying some. I saw some of the bids were up to the $20.00 level. This is from an ACTUAL LISTING: "My son and I cornered the market on these Twinkies at our local grocery store and purchased all of the remaining Twinkies off the shelves this Friday (November 16th 2012). This is a full, unopened box of Twinkies. Many will buy the last remaining Twinkies to...

    The Examiner ^ | November 16, 2012 | Kevin Fobbs
    Are you ready to wake up in an America where your family is defenseless against enemies foreign or domestic? This reality is right around the corner. A day after his reelection, Barack Obama signaled the United Nations that he is ready to sign an Arms Treaty to strip you of your U.S. Second Amendment Constitutional right to bear arms. This is not new. The United Nations made earlier attempts during the administration of former President George W. Bush. But, President Bush soundly rejected the measure. Now, President Obama, fresh off of this presidential win, feels emboldened to go forward with...
  • CBS Commentator Wants Abortions to Lower White Voter Population

    Godfather Politics ^ | November 13, 2012 | Gary DeMar
    On MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry Show Saturday, CBS’s Nancy Giles said the reason white people are “trying to eliminate all these abortions” is “to build up the [white] race.” This is the epitome of racism. Can you imagine what the response would have been if a white person had said that the reason blacks are winning elections is that they are having so many babies out of wedlock, which they are? She’s implying that lowering restrictions on abortion will help liberals. Sick. Could it possibly be that the reason conservatives, white and black alike, oppose abortion is because it results in...

    Obama Consults With MSNBC Host Al Sharpton, and Other 'Civil Rights Leaders,' on Fiscal Talks (NAACP, LA RAZA, HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN etc) NOV 16, 2012 • BY DANIEL HALPER This afternoon, President Barack Obama consulted with MSNBC host Al Sharpton, who's also assicated with the National Action Network (NAN), about the fiscal talks between the White House and Congress. At the same meeting, Obama also consulted with other "leaders of civil rights and civic organizations."

    A caller into Hannity today said he ordered a bunch of things off of Mitt Romney.com before the election and did not get everything he ordered and then only got a bumper sticker the week before the election. Funny thing is that this happened to me too. I ordered 4 bumper stickers and 2 yard signs. The yard signs were not cheap, I think $15.00 each. My local area had nothing at all being in NYC area. The bumper stickers came after about 1.5 months but I never got the yard signs. Has this happened to anyone else, because I...
  • Is Obama’s Treasury Department Planning a Carbon Tax?

    ATR ^ | 2012-11-13 | Christopher Prandoni
    The Competitive Enterprise Institute thinks so and [Tues]day “filed suit to force the Treasury Department to release more than 7,300 emails believed to discuss a new ‘carbon tax’ Obama administration allies in Congress are expected to propose in the upcoming lame duck session.” The CEI press release continues, “the suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., seeks emails on official government accounts that CEI had requested under the Freedom of Information Act. Treasury has said nothing about this topic publicly, but the existence of such extensive email traffic likely reflects serious ongoing discussions between Treasury officials, outside pressure...

    The corporate closure will eliminate not only jobs, but 33 bakeries, 565 distribution centers, 5,500 delivery routes and 570 bakery outlet stores in the United States. While some workers bucked threats from union bosses and returned to work, it was not enough. "The problem is we don't have enough crossing those lines to maintain normal production,” said Rayburn. So, this ends a company that has been in business since 1930 providing delicious treats to generations of customers. While it is a sad day for most Americans, one person who will be celebrating is First Lady Michelle Obama, who is the...
  • Benghazi-gate and the Electoral College

    11/16/2012 1:39:46 PM PST · by Jacquerie · 25 replies
    The Electoral College will cast votes in the fifty states on December 17th. About half of the states require their electors by law, more or less to vote for the popular vote winner or political party winner. The rest do not require electors to vote for a specific candidate. Obama apparently won the popular vote on November 6th. What if it becomes clear before the Electoral College vote that Obama was running weapons from Libya to Al Queda in Syria and Egypt for use against Israel and perhaps against our American servicemen? I say popular vote be d@mned.

    [Wednes]day, the President held his first press conference since being elected to a second term. President Obama was given the opportunity to come clean on the size of the tax hike he wants on small business employers when MSNBC White House Correspondent Chuck Todd asked him: “Are you -- is there no deal at the end of the year if tax rates for the top 2 percent aren't the Clinton tax rates, period, no if, ands or buts? Any room in negotiating on that specific aspect of the fiscal cliff?” The President has repeatedly argued that he wants “to go...

In other words, the traditional republican-cum-PE scapegoating strategy here will be a tough one to pull off since the narrative collapses when considering that it was a Democrat who rescued the firm, only to see it implode in a trainwreck that has resulted in the liquidation of a legendary...

    With all of the action in Gaza right now, where's the Muslim outrage? Minister Farrakhan hasn't issued one statement about either the Palestinians or Israel. Not even a condemnation of his favorite enemy "Da Jeeeeeeewwwwwwssssss!" How the hell does that happen? Anyone else notice it?
