ObamaCare Damage: 70% of California Doctors Avoiding ObamaCare

Remember when the President Obama told us that if we liked our doctors, we could keep them?  Well, we now know that this was a lie.  However, the extent of how big a lie it was is up for debate.  However, it seems that at least in California, is a 70% lie, as that is how many doctors are refusing to participate in ObamaCare plans… This isn’t some far right wing think tank that’s making this claim. It’s the largest medical association in California: An estimated seven out of every 10 physicians in deep-blue California are rebelling against the state’s […]

SEIU Protester Suggests That McDonalds Workers “Might do Something to the Food”

I’ve covered the SEIU many times.  Beside having a big affinity for communism, the SEIU has an alleged history of sabotaging workplaces to get what they want.  Allegedly, even nursing home care… Well, another union, the SEIU, has been accused of sabotaging patient care at nursing homes.  Big Government has more… Union workers at Connecticut nursing homes represented by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) are alleged to have vandalized and sabotaged assisted living facilities in Connecticut — including those that care for Alzheimer’s patients — during a mass walkout earlier this month. HealthBridge, which owns the nursing homes, is […]

Did Union Thugs Destroy a Church?

Apparently, even God isn’t above the reach of union thugs.  Here’s the background.  Quakers (not the Oatmeal folks, the actual religion) needed a new “meeting house” (their place of worship=church).  However, they decided to go with non-union labor.  That’s when things, shall we say, got interesting.  Philly .com,  via Weasel Zippers has more… As agonizing as the process was, the result is a trim little design, faced in traditional Wissahickon schist, that will visibly reflect the ideals Quakers hold dear, from respect for the environment to plain old good neighborliness. And yet, in one crucial way, the $5.8 million project […]

That’s a Nice Granny You Have There, be a Shame if Something Were to Happen to Her: SEIU Accused of Sabotaging Nursing Home Care

Last year, we covered the Verizon strike, when company equipment would mysteriously get broken, and fiber-optic cables would spontaneously cut themselves.  Of course, the union said they didn’t do it, but then again, fiber-optic cables always spontaneously cut themselves, right? Well, another union, the SEIU, has been accused of sabotaging patient care at nursing homes.  Big Government has more… Union workers at Connecticut nursing homes represented by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) are alleged to have vandalized and sabotaged assisted living facilities in Connecticut — including those that care for Alzheimer’s patients — during a mass walkout earlier this month. HealthBridge, which owns […]

The Department of Labor: Family traditions turned upside down

I was fortunate to grow up in the country.  My first paying job was working on a farm. From the time I was 14 until 16 years of age, I spent my summers rotating around the local area between three separate farms working for a couple of dollars an hour haying.  I was taught at a very young age that work meant something.  It was what men did to provide for their families.  Work was so important to my grandfather that his dying wish was when he passed on he would be wearing his work boots.   He believed that hard […]

Longshore Union Fined $250,000 by Judge for Sabotage, Longshoremen Promising More of the Same

union thug

It would seem that a recent trend in union thug activities is to disregard court orders.  Several weeks ago, we covered that a local teacher’s union was blatantly defying a court order by refusing to return to work.  Now, we revisit the longshoreman in the Port of Longview.  Due to their acts of vandalism and sabotage, they have been fined by a judge-to the tune of a quarter or a million dollars… The bad news, of course: It’ll come out of rank-and-file workers’ dues while fat cat Big Labor thugs back in Washington sit clean and pretty in their Taj Mahal headquarters. KOMO […]

Verizon Strike Update 8-18-11: More Vandalism, and "That's a Nice School Board Meeting You Have Here-be a Shame if Something Were to Happen to it"

union thug

As the strike against Verizon drags on, we’re getting a great lesson on union tactics.  Unlike the past, the unions cannot count on the press to cover for them, and still not be exposed.  With the alternative media, there are always ways to get the word out. And for todays updates, we have  more vandalism, and a school board meeting to disrupt. Vandalism Disrupts Service for Verizon customers in Virginia  In one case, the acts disrupted Verizon’s local FIOS service to about 100 customers. According to local media reports, two cables were cut on Coalfield Road in the town of Midlothian, […]

Well, it seems that the workers striking against Verizon have been, allegedly, engaging in standard union activities.  Here are some lowlights… Sabotage Impacts First Responders: It’s been less than 24 hours since the Communications Workers of America (CWA) and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) called 45,000 of their respective members out on strike against Verizon and, already, there are reports of sabotage of Verizon equipment, as well as illegal picketing.According to a Verizon press release on Monday, there has been: Ten incidents of fiber-optic lines being deliberately cut in the Bronx, Pomona, Farmingdale and Guilderland in New York; two separate incidents in […]

Latest Twist to Leftist Narrative: Republicans Sabotaging the Economy

We talk about the left’s tendency to project a great deal here at the CH 2.0.  And now, we see more proof that the left always accuses the Conservatives of they are doing themselves. During the course of this past week, the accusation has been raise that the GOP is somehow sabotaging the economy to improve their hopes for 2012.  This started with some Dem congressmen, and was quickly picked up by the MSM, and other lefty outlets.   I have to admit it, as a Conservative, we’re interested in causing misery so we can win in 2012.  And, in […]

Glenn Beck Exposes Leftist Plans: Collapse the Economy to Take Power

We’ve talked about Cloward-Piven many times before.  In essence, the Cloward-Piven strategy is meant to undermine and overwhelm a system, or systems, and bring them to a state of collapse.  Then, as the idea goes, the resulting crisis creates an opportunity for “change.”  And, for our left, this “change” will necessarily consist of tyranny.  For some striking evidence of a current Cloward-Piven type plan, take a look at this video from The Blaze. For our leftists, it isn’t a matter of which system is better, it only matters that the dominant system is not theirs.  And since Marxist states cannot compete […]

Labor Union Sabotages Blizzard Cleanup? A New Born Dies

We’ve covered many activities of organized labor; the violence, intimidation, general thuggery, and so on.  Now, there are reports that sanitation workers in NYC intentionally delayed the cleanup efforts during the recent blizzard (global warming-sorry, couldn’t resist!).  Here are the details from the NY Post… “They sent a message to the rest of the city that these particular labor issues are more important,” said City Councilman Dan Halloran (R-Queens), who was visited yesterday by a group of guilt-ridden sanitation workers who confessed the shameless plot. Halloran said he met with three plow workers from the Sanitation Department — and two […]
