The Left Hates Teenagers

Common sense tells us that if something becomes more expensive, less of it is consumed. And, if that something happens to minimum wage workers, the same is true. A few days after Labor Day American Thinker ran a post titled Fast food strikers: meet your replacement robot. The article reported on how the far left SEIU had organized protests for raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour in several cities across America. Most of the protests took place near fast food restaurants. Many of the protestors were arrested for blocking traffic. The author  believes that these protests by striking […]

What Would a $15 a Hour Minimum Wage Cause: Higher Prices vs. Robots

The effort to provide millions of workers with a living wage put millions of workers out of a job, the SEIU Communist Party is leading protests against fast food joints all over the US.  Their demand is a $15 a hour minimum wage.  As usual, the SEIU Communists, being ignorant of how businesses actually work, fail to recognize the consequences of their actions; like higher prices… Fight for 15 The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) has launched an expensive PR campaign calling for wages of at least $15 an hour in the fast-food industry. This Fight for 15 is part […]

SEIU Supports ObamaCare: SEIU Rank and File Loses Jobs-Due to ObamaCare

Ready for a extra thick piece of irony cake?  As we all know, union bosses were big supporters of ObamaCare, funneling millions into democrat coffers.  However, as usual, the boss’s support of democrat causes the people they are supposed to “represent” to lose their jobs.  The SEIU is no exception. And, SEIU represented staff at East Niagara Hospital are being so well “represented” by the SEIU, they they don’t have to go to work-ever again! From Labor Union Report: SEIU-Backed ObamaCare Helps Cause SEIU-Represented Hospital To Cut 10% Of Full-Time Staff With ex-SEIU boss Andy Stern having taken credit for the passage […]

Democrat Party Created Shutdown Mashup: Illegals can Gather-Veterans Cannot, Death Benefits Denied, Losing Control of Narrative? Updated with Water Fountain Handles

In our latest shutdown update, we have to look at what our Democratic Senators have created by refusing to vote on any House-passed Continuing Resolutions. Veterans cannot visit open air memorials, but Illegal Aliens can have a rally on the Mall? I guess when it comes to the Democrat Party Generated Government Shutdown, the pain is applied to WW II and Vietnam Veteran, but illegal aliens are A-OK!  Nothing could be more emblematic of the Obama Regime than this. Even as it attempts to block off the open air World War II memorial to vets who traveled across the country […]

Never Believe “Official” Crowd Estimates

Remember when the Tea Parties got going in the Spring on ’09?  Remember how there would be thousands, or even tens of thousands of people there, and the MSM would say “dozens?”  Remember how the MSM would cover Obama campaign 2012 events by only showing tight shot on Obama-because the place was half empty?   Remember how Glenn Beck filled the National Mall twice, and the MSM severely downplayed the attendance?     If you do, you know that the MSM cannot be trusted for anything, let alone crowd estimates for political events.   Well, when the right was being truthful, and provided […]

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 […]

One Consequence of Forced Union Membership

As the unions fight to keep forced union membership in Michigan, I thought it might be a good idea to re-visit a story we did in early 2011, about how the SEIU got the then Governor of Michigan, to make parents of disabled children members.  Of course, the SEIU got to take dues from them, in exchange for…nothing! In other words, the SEIU has gotten to take millions of dollars from people that care for their disabled children. Because unions are so super great, that people have to be forced to join them. Now, let’s flashback to a more current […]

SEIU Considers Work Stoppage on Thanksgiving: The “More” to the Story

So, the SEIU wants to do a work stoppage at one of the busiest airports, and on the busiest travel day of the year.  Typically, we’d just look at this as yet another, “union goons screw up everyone’s holiday to get what they want.”  But, there is more to it than meets the eye.  For the preliminaries, take a look at this from Stop the ACLU… (CBS LA) Employees at Los Angeles International Airport were considering plans Friday to walk off the job ahead on what is traditionally the busiest traveling day of the year. But, hey, they really, really […]

SEIU Pays People to Protest Romney

I wonder if $11 an hour is a “living wage,” because that is what the SEIU was allegedly paying people to protest Mitt Romney.  The Blaze has the video… So then, how enthusiastic are the Democrats when they have to pay people to show up?   Then again, it appears to be standard procedure to pay people to be “rent-a-mob.”

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 […]

Unions Promise to Defend Voter Fraud?

  This one is a tad bit confusing, to be honest.  As we are all aware, voter fraud is a problem, as well as voter registration fraud.  We also know that AG Holder, when he is not sending guns down Mexico way, has promised to not enforce the parts of Motor Voter that demands that deceased, or otherwise illegal voters are removed from the rolls.  What the law does permit is for outside groups to monitor these rolls.  However, it seems that some union goons have taken issue with that cause.  J. Christian Adams, at PJ Media, has the details… […]

Occupy Plans Uncovered

The Blaze has the following video outlining some of the strategy that might be used by OWS in the coming year.  Kindly give it a view. Well, that doesn’t leave much room for speculation, does it?

#Occupy and Union Thugs Plans to Disrupt CPAC: Intimidation, Vandalism, and Violence to be Recorded?


Isn’t it interesting that the movement that purports to be all about free speech and democracy tends to limit the free speech of others?  Well, it seems that #Occupy, and specifically, Occupy DC, plan to disrupt CPAC.  The most influential Conservative gathering in the US, CPAC attracts all of the big names in the Conservative world.  Presidential candidates, pundits, media, bloggers, and the like will descend on DC this week.  And, the Occupods will be there to greet them.  Here is more from the Washington Examiner… Here is their write-up: On February 9th through February 11th, a who’s who of dastardly politicians will be […]

What are the Thought Processes of a Union Organizer?

Ever wonder what constitutes the thought processes of a union organizer?  Take a look at the following video, posted at RedState by Labor Union Report… Where would one begin on refuting this?  It is pretty amazing.  She doesn’t discuss union violence, or that people are forced to join unions.  She doesn’t discuss the violence, the rapes, the vandalism, and the open calls for Communist revolution at OWS.  She does do a great job in painting things as all “touchy- feely,” that is, until you remember that “touchy-feely” to a union member means the feeling you get when they are beating you down […]

A Tale of Two Stories: Lowes not Advertising on “All-American Muslim,” is bad, but Boycotting Glenn Beck was Perfectly OK

In another not-at-all shocking example of a double standard, Lowes is taking some heat for choosing not to advertise on the TLC show, “All-American Muslim.”  The Blaze has some coverage here… Hardware retail giant Lowe’s has pulled its commercials from all future episodes of TLC’s reality TV show “All-American Muslim,” the chain said this week. The conservative Florida Family Association has been leading a campaign to get retailers to pull their advertisements from the show. On Tuesday, it posted an email from a Lowe‘s representative who said Lowe’s will no longer be advertising during “All-American Muslim,” which chronicles the lives of several Muslim-American families living […]

Useful Idiot of the Month Poll: October 2011


It’s that time again.  The nominations have been taken, and the people have spoken.  Here is a list of the candidates for Useful Idiot of the Month: October 2011… 1.  The Occupods:  They march for socialism, they attack people, they call for revolution, and suggest that we kill all of those pesky Jews.  They apparently defecate and urinate all over, and when they get bored, they attack the police as well.  It’s hippies on meth, and they aren’t going away. 2.  Barak Hussein Obama:  The perpetual candidate, and multiple winner of Useful Idiot of the Month. 3.  Geraldo Rivera: For sucking […]

Union Scam Revealed: SEIU Accused of Legally Skimming Medicaid Payments


Here’s an accusation that you might find disturbing… Seems perfectly despicable to me.

SEIU Alinsky Styled Guide Revealed: Thug Tactics Abound


Back in March, we discussed the fact the SEIU was being sued by Sodexo under the RICO statute.    It seems that the SEIU has had a RICO suit filed against them by Sodexo, a service company that the union wanted to “organize.”  Take a look at what happens to you when you resist the SEIU… Sodexo USA recognizes the value of union activity and has built positive relationships with more than 30 different unions.  Over 15 percent of Sodexo USA’s workforce is unionized, which is more than twice the national average for the private sector, and the Company has […]
