Coal Miner Gives Heartfelt Testimony Regarding Obama’s EPA Policies

Obama promised that he would put coal fired power plants out of business.  Obama promised that his policies would make make electric bills “skyrocket.”  As we face potential energy shortages and even possible brownouts/blackouts due to Obama’s policies, coal miners are looking forward to a bleak future as well.  Here is video of a miner making a rather humble and heartfelt comment a a public hearing.   When Obama kills the industry that uses much of the coal mined, it puts the coal miners in a precarious position. But, of course, the Obama administration doesn’t care a bit about the […]

OSHA Targeting Non-Union Plants, and Allowing Union Reps to Come Along on the Inspections

Imagine, if you will, that a federal bureaucracy uses it’s power to target opponents of the Obama administration (non-union facilities).  Now, imagine that not only do they target the non-union facilities, but they bring union reps along for the inspections!  Breitbart has more…   “Well, it came to light for us when we noticed that there were more and more stories being reported around the country where OSHA was designating union representatives to come along for inspections in non-unionized industry,” Roby said. “At the same time, OSHA issued what’s regional emphasis program that targeted the automotive parts suppliers in Alabama, […]

Subaru Dealership Outwits Union; Turns Attempted Intimidation Into Epic Win

To say that one outwitted a union is not much of a statement.  For decades, union goons got away with violence, intimidation, extortion, and any of a number of mob related offenses for which they were immune from prosecution.  Now, with technology, like digital cameras, social media, and blogs, union thugs have a harder going of it.  If they beat someone up, there’s someone there with a camera to record it.  Then, it circulates all over as example # 1,500,693 of union violence.  In other words, their overt tactics now expose them, so more subtle methods are needed.  So, in […]

Volkswagen Workers Reject Union ‘Protection’

In what may have been a “make it or break it” union scenario, workers at the Volkswagen Plant in Tennessee rejected union representation “protection.”    American Power has more… The United Auto Workers union suffered a crushing defeat Friday, falling short in an election in which it seemed to have a clear path to organizing workers at Volkswagen AG VOW3.XE +1.10%  ‘s plant in Chattanooga, Tenn. The setback is a bitter defeat because the union had the cooperation of Volkswagen management and the aid of Germany’s powerful IG Metall union, yet it failed to win a majority among the plants […]

Go right to the source and ask the horse He’ll give you the answer that you’ll endorse. He’s always on a steady course. Talk to Mr. Ed.

Boeing Workers Vote to Lose Their Jobs?

It appears that Boeing workers have literally voted themselves out of a job.  WASHINGTON — Looks like unionized industrial engineers and other workers will be out of a job soon. The union representing workers that would help build Boeing 777X airliners voted 67% against non-union labor for the project. Reuters reported that the International Machinists’ Union hailed it as a victory for their workers, but Boeing quickly responded and said they will move their business elsewhere. If you recall, the Obama Administration, actively prevented Boeing from opening a facility in a Right to Work state. I wonder what kind of […]

Michigan Teacher Sues to be Freed From Union

I hope she realizes what she is getting in to. Miriam Chanski, a teacher from Coopersville, Michigan, is suing to be freed from her union, the Michigan Education Association.  EAGNews has more… Miriam Chanski, 24, attempted to drop out of the MEA teachers union this May after Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder approved legislation making Michigan a right-to-work state. But Chanski told WZZM television station the union responded with a letter two months later rejecting her request. The MEA, like most teachers unions, only allows members a very small window of time to drop their memberships each year – for the […]

Christian Bakery Closed by Gay Mafia Threats/Intimidation, and How to Fight Back

It’s going to be  familiar refrain, if the gay rights crowd has their way… Christians need not apply. As I see it, there is a pattern of attack used by gay rights groups in response to the very existence of a Christian business. 1.  The gay rights crowd sends someone to that business with a request that will cause the business owner to violate their beliefs. 2.  Since the Christian business owner actually has a core morality to guide him/her, they will refuse the the request. 3.  The gay rights crowd then begins a typical leftist campaign of terror against […]

2014 C7 Corvette: See it Here

Just when you thought that the C6 was the pinnacle of Corvette awesomeness, they went and created the 2014 C7 Corvette.  Steve, at Motor City Times, has the pics… Then, the Dallas News has more details…   Wave bye-bye to the old plastic-fantastic Corvette, America’s original sports car. In a nod to the past and a major reach for the future, Chevrolet unveiled the all-new 2014 Corvette tonight in Detroit, renaming it the Chevrolet Stingray. The much anticipated ‘Vette was introduced on the eve of the opening of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. And you can forget […]

MEA President Politicize Shootings, Uses Tragedy to Push Personal Agenda Using Union Resources

Hours after the tragic school shooting, I received an email from the Michigan Education Association President Steve Cook. The entire statement can be found on the MEA website, paid for by unionized school employees, but here is the bulk of it: “Regardless of what the details and facts are of today’s events in Connecticut, this nation must have a real conversation about guns and the safety of our students and those who care for them. “I am a gun owner and avid outdoorsman, but something must be done to protect our children from such acts of violence. Entire school communities — boards, administrators, teachers, support […]

Hostess Dies Again, 18,500 out of Work: Bonus Twinkie Recipe!

While I was at work yesterday, a court ordered mediation failed to produce an agreement that would save Hostess from the liquidation chopping block.   So, once again, Hostess is dead.  Michelle Malkin has more… It didn’t happen: Hostess Brands lived to die another day. The maker of Twinkies and Ding Dongs said late Tuesday that it failed to reach an agreement with its second biggest union. As a result, Hostess plans to continue with a hearing on Wednesday in which a bankruptcy court judge will decide if the company can shutter its operations. The renewed talks between Hostess and The Bakery, Confectionery, […]

Hostess Workers Fire Themselves: Strike Causes Three Bakeries to Close

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. […]

Teacher Caught on Video Assaulting a Student: Get’s to His Job

What happens when a teacher is caught on video assaulting a student?  He gets to keep his job!  Here is the video… Here is the information from the video… The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department said Wednesday it is investigating a complaint of an alleged bullying incident, caught on video, involving a student at Kopachuk Middle School in Gig Harbor in February. The department said it was contacted July 30 by a lawyer representing the parents of the student who was concerned that her clients’ 13-year-old son had been the victim of a bullying incident and that “the incident appeared to be abuse.” Might it […]

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 […]

O’Keefe Catches Union Bosses Supporting Digging Holes, and Filling them Back in-At Taxpayer Expense

Remember the BS “projects” that the porkulus funded?  Like, Turtle Tunnels, fish sperm storage, and curb cuts where there were no sidewalks?  Well, James O’Keefe, the man who helped bust ACORN, has exposed some union shenanigans.  O’Keefe formed a fake company, who’s specialty is to dig holes, and fill them back in.  He also went to local union bosses for help.  The results are hilarious.  Here is the video… OK, here is the part of the story that will be completely ignored. THE FULL, UNEDITED FOOTAGE IS HERE!   If this get’s covered at all, the union bosses will say, “out of […]

Paid Protesters Heckle Romney?

It’s more likely than you think.  According to at least some of the anti-Romney protesters out there, the phrase rent-a-mob is a bit more spot on than the President’s campaign is willing to admit.  Buzzfeed has more… DeWitt, Mich. — The protesters popping up at Mitt Romney’s rallies throughout Michigan Tuesday look like run-of-the-mill grassroots liberals — they wave signs about “the 99 percent,” they chant about the Republican’s greed, and they describe themselves as a loosely organized coalition of “concerned citizens.” They’re also getting paid, two of the protesters and an Obama campaign official told BuzzFeed.   At the candidate’s […]

Demoralized Leftists? Recall Walker Effort Running Out of Gas

Da Tech Guy has been telling us that the left is demoralized.  I happen to agree wholeheartedly.  The blame for that falls one man:  Barak Obama.  He has a fawning media, who have dutifully lied, distorted, omitted, and spun at his bidding.  He has allies in the unions bosses, with their army of goons.  He has “community organizations” at his disposal, who readily intimidate, hire protesters, and file fake voter registrations by the thousands.  Hell, even the dead vote for him, often more than once.  But even with all of that, there are major problems in liberal land… 1.  Obama is having difficulties in […]

Limbaugh Advertiser to Liberals: Bring it!

I’ve said, quite a few times, that while the leftists have an impressive punch, their play book is paper thin.  They do the typical astroturf email and phone harassment campaigns, send in thugs by the busload, and do the typical harassment of children, employers, and business associates.  However, in reality, they are very small, yet highly organized.  They count on being far more noisy than their actual influence would indicate.  In other words, they make a ton of noise, but it’s just that-noise.  Then, if one buys into the “fact” that the protesters actually represent anything more than the Democratic party, they give in, and the […]
