Unions Attempt to Embrace Democracy, by Preventing Vote

If you recall, the unions love the chant, “this is what democracy looks like.”  But they seem to not understand what democracy is, as they seem to try very hard to stop actual votes from being taken.  We saw that in Wisconsin, and now, in Michigan.  The Blaze has more… Police used pepper spray Thursday to subdue protesters trying to rush the Michigan state Senate after Gov. Rick Snyder and other Republican leaders announced they would press for quick approval of right-to-work legislation limiting union powers. “When several of the individuals rushed the troopers, they used chemical munitions to disperse […]

I am what I am Because I’m the Master of my own Destiny

Can you say that you are masters of your own destiny; that you control your own fate?  That all you are and all you will become is based on the decisions you have made or will make in this life; a series of choices that lead to life events with more choices to make.  Or do you believe your life is predestined and no matter what road you travel or what choices you make it has already been mapped out?  There is so much I don’t know about life, but what I do know is I am what am because […]

Freedom From Coercion Amendment

I know, you haven’t heard of the Freedom From Coercion Amendment.  It’s my take on how to deal with an important issue, that people are forced to join labor unions as a condition of employment.  It reads as follows… No person shall be subjected to coercion or force to join an external organization in order to obtain and maintain employment, nor will they be subjected to coercion or force in order to make payments to any external organization as a condition to gain and maintain employment.   No person shall be subjected to retribution or punishment for their decision to join, or not join, […]

Apparently, Making Union Dues Voluntary Means Less Members Pay Dues

union thug

If you see a union boss on the MSM, you’d come away with the impression that the unions are the best thing since sliced bread, and that only evil capitalists and Conservatives prevent everyone from living in the land of milk and honey that is union membership  Of course, actually believing that would require a complete denial of reality, but since when does the MSM actually cover reality? At any rate, recent events in Wisconsin show that when given the choice, many CHOOSE not to pay their union dues. According to WHBL in Sheboygan, WEAC’s monopoly has suddenly shrunk, thanks […]
