  • Union Sticks It to Hostess and Leaves Workers Jobless

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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

    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.

    In a move that will draw ire among those who fear the ever-growing perils of the America’s preoccupation with Islamic-sensitivity, the administration made a bold step Wednesday — the day after President Obama won his re-election bid – of removing a convicted Hamas operative (and Chicago resident) from its designated terrorist list. 59-year old Muhammad Salah, who spent nearly five years in an Israeli prison for funding the terrorist outfit, was taken off the list by the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control. The terrorist designation prohibited Salah from obtaining employment or allegedly to make simple purchases without seeking...

    What unions are doing in America today, not only to the companies but to the workers they supposedly represent, is unconscionable. It’s sad that a majority of their own members can’t or refuse to see that these unions are not truly on their side and in fact have done much to destroy capitalism. Unions have become the people they were originally formed to oppose. Unions are a socialist concept. The whole concept of unions pits management against the workers. The assumption is that management is an evil force whose sole purpose is the abuse of the worker. While this may...

Why naturally he took the story to just one person–Obama appointee, FBI Director Robert Mueller, the very man who would have been responsible...

The one question that has not been answered is WHO MADE THESE CHANGES BEFORE THEY WERE HANDED TO RICE for release? Whoever made this change is responsible for the dispersal of UNTRUTH to the American people and the world regarding the motives behind the attack. Petraeus testified in a closed-door hearing Friday morning that his...

Despite the large number of personnel being thrown at the problem (along with lots of money), actual terrorists seem to be in limited supply.

    Someone stopped by searching for “why do so many people want gun control.” That is a good question. Essentially, because “gun control” appears to be a quick, cheap, and easy solution to a perceived problem. For Germany, the “perceived problem” was the Treaty of Versailles. For England, the perceived problem was labor violence and the presumption that large numbers of unemployed veterans would turn to crime. For the United States, the first batch of gun control laws were a result of labor violence, the next were a result of prohibition; and the third was “an end to politically motivated assassinations.”...

Sources, which I can’t divulge, have made it clear that Constitutional Carry is on the radar. We can expect to see some concrete movement in the New Year. While the Federal elections were disappointing for gun owners, North Carolina, coming off a historic Republican led redistricting plan, has turned the entire State government over to the Republican...

    In the aftermath of the recent Presidential election, a lot was made of the demographic shifts in voting patterns and what they meant for the future of the GOP. Some RINOs suggested drilling holes in the bottom of the ship of state by pursuing "comprehensive immigration reform"; others suggested that, since the Sandra Fluck crowd had apparently been the deciding factor, that social conservatives should be thrown overboard; still others said that the reason Romney failed was that he was portrayed as a rich man, out of touch with voters' plight in this tough economy. I have written an analysis...

    Today, speaking of the the terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, we heard some strong and common sense words: ... "This administration has lied to the American people about this tragedy," Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., said. "The arrogance and dishonesty in all of this is breathtaking. Let's not stonewall this issue and cover up mistakes, which seems to be what is going on today." ... Why was the Obama administration, speaking through its U.N. mouthpiece Susan Rice, so adamant that, "a spontaneous protest over an anti-Muslim video had evolved into an attack on the American consulate?" In...

    Pennsylvania and Ohio were two states the GOP thought they could win last week. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan crisscrossed both states over and over until it seemed endless. They drew some pretty big crowds, too. No matter, both states were confirmed Obama territory within hours of the polls closing, and many economically disadvantaged districts voted near-unanimously for a second Obama term. I guess you could call today's jobless numbers poetic justice for all the voters who feel like they can vote a standard of living for themselves that they're unwilling to earn. Well, there's 14,000 newly jobless this week...

    And Asa cried unto the LORD his God, and said, LORD, it is nothing with thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power: help us, O LORD our God; for we rest on thee, and in thy name we go against this multitude. O LORD, thou art our God; let not man prevail against thee. II Chronicles 14:11 Sadly, we could have had both prosperity -and- a great awakening if we had sought first the kingdom of God as our founding fathers did. Following is my opinion of the Republican Party’s problem from back in...

    Long range is, by definition, a relative term. When the earliest European settlers arrived on the east coast of what would become the United States of America they were armed with a collection of match, wheel lock, and snaphaunce actuated firearms that were, occasionally, more dangerous to the user than the intended victim. Among the immigrants were gentlemen adventurers on the prowl for quick riches, families looking to build a new life, and others who sought religious freedom; all who drilled with these firearms under the under the leadership of the likes of Captain John Smith, in the Virginias, and...

    Just telling it like it is — I like his style. Per Politico: John Metz, a restaurant franchisor who operates 48 locations of Hurricane Grill & Wings, several dozen Denny’s locations and a few Dairy Queens, told The Huffington Post Thursday that he’d join the growing list of restaurateurs piling purported Obamacare costs onto their customers and staff. In his case, though, he’s going to label it so all of his customers know about it. “If I leave the prices the same, but say on the menu that there is a 5 percent surcharge for Obamacare, customers have two choices....
