Earlier this year, we covered that Hostess, the iconic brand that makes such treats as Twinkies, was going bankrupt. At the top of the list of causes was high labor costs. The company had stated that if the union went on strike, the company would be liquidated. But, when the company made an offer to save the company, the workers decided that they didn’t want their jobs after all. The Gateway Pundit has more… Over 600 workers will no longer have a job. Nice work bakers’ union. St. Louis Today reported: Hostess Brands permanently closed three bakeries Monday, including a plant in St. […]
Apparently, the Obama Administration is holding back on announcing new regulations, especially from the EPA. It would seem that the Administration does not want prospective voters knowing what the EPA will be up to. However, Freedom Works has some relevant information… First, an October report from Republican Sen. James Inhofe indicated that the EPA specifically “punted” on numerous regulations in an attempt to “earn votes” for a second term. … Then, the administration illegally failed to meet a deadline for releasing regulatory plans for the coming year, a move which prompted Inhofe to release the following statement: “President Obama is refusing to comply with the law that requires him to publish forthcoming regulations because he doesn’t […]
Some of you probably don’t enjoy the ‘Obama everyday’ approach that some blogs have adopted, and I have also struggled with this, but the truth of the matter is that this Presidential campaign is increasingly becoming a story between two opposing forces and a good storyteller (me) should always focus on the main characters in that battle. The battle lines have been drawn up. On one side is President Barack Obama, who has taken the lead in the new-look Democratic Party and is being followed by assorted people like Senator Stabenow and Congresswomen Nancy Pelosi. He has declared war on […]
Most of us follow national politics, many of us follow state politics, but how many are closely watching their own local politics? Your city or town might just be running deficits and facing bankruptcy- and when it does, their might be no one to bail them out, and police and fire and library and recreational services will be gone. From The Trumpet story More U.S. Cities Going Bankrupt Indicate Nation’s Future: …Last Friday, the city of Scranton sent out paychecks to its employees, as it does every two weeks. But these checks were for amounts significantly smaller than usual because Mayor […]
Government officials in Washington would have you believe that the economic decisions they are making are in the best interest of the public and that chief economic advisors agree they are doing the right thing. These officials would have you believe that running a country (economically speaking – macroeconomics) is vastly different than running your small business or your individual budget (microeconomics). This is what they want you to believe, but in reality they are wrong. Whether you are running a household, a business or a country, certain firm concrete realities exist. The biggest one of those is: if you […]
Conservatives have known that Obama has it in for all things coal. We know this because he’s said so-no prophesy or divination required! However, it seems that quite a few people didn’t pay attention to what candidate Obama was saying. Case in point, Cecil Roberts, boss of bosses of the United Mine Workers. Apparently, Cecil just now realized that Obama is going to put a lot of his “constituents” out of work… The coal industry will suffer the same fate as Osama bin Laden under new climate regulations proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency, the head of the United Mine […]
