Oppose Common Core? A Union Boss Promises Violence Against You

In typical union goon fashion, the President of the NY United Federation of Teachers, Michael Mulgrew, directly threatened anyone who opposes that anti-educational/liberal indoctrination plot know as Common Core.  Video surfaced on Thursday showing Michael Mulgrew, president of New York’s United Federation of Teachers, as he unloaded a hateful rant against critics of the Common Core Standards Initiative. “If someone takes something from me, I’m going to grab it right back out of their cold, twisted, sick hands and say it is mine!” Mulgrew bellowed clownishly. “You do not take what is mine!” The union boss also challenged opponents of […]

Burn down a school? Retire and collect your full pension!

Annals of public employee unionistas — Edison, NJ Edition. The custodian facing charges for allegedly starting a fire that burned down an Edison elementary school has retired. Jerome Higgins confirmed by phone to The Star-Ledger that he no longer works for the school district. He declined to comment further, saying, “I’m not at liberty to speak.” Board of education members accepted Higgins’ resignation at a special meeting Tuesday night, according to a report on MyCentralJersey.com. The resignation was effective as of June 30. Higgins, 48, of East Brunswick is eligible for a pension since he has worked for the district […]

SCOTUS slaps down SEIU over illegal union dues

Schadenfreude! SCOTUS ruling will force SEIU to repay millions in illegal union dues The Purple People Beaters got beat. And soon, they’ll feel the heat. One of the nation’s most powerful labor unions could face a costly onslaught of lawsuits seeking tens of millions of dollars in dues, after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the money was collected improperly, legal experts said. In a ruling Monday, the high court held that Service Employees International Union cannot force people who care for loved ones to be union members and deduct dues from the government checks of those they care for. The […]

Michigan Teacher’s Union Contract Specifically Excludes Christians

“Christians need not apply,” might as well read the signs at one Michigan school.  The union’s contract with that district specifically excludes Christians from the hiring process.  Here is more on the teacher’s union hatred for Christianity… One of the latest outrageous reports emanating from this bastion of leftism, however, indicates just how dedicated unions are to the cause of whitewashing America’s founding principles and values. One Michigan school district’s teachers union boasts a contract that unequivocally states that “[s]pecial consideration shall be given to … those of the non-Christian faith” in filling open positions within the school system. It […]

Voter Suppression in Mexico! Democrats Silent

If we would follow the logic of Democrats, we would have to denounce the voter suppression in Mexico.  You see, the Mexican government is demanding that voters show an appropriate ID in order to cast a vote!  As we know from the Democrats, voter ID laws are inherently racist, and prevents dead people felons Mickey Mouse democratic voters from casting their ballots repeatedly!  Da Tech Guy has more… I call on every “liberal” entity to rise up in support of dead people felons Mickey Mouse democrat voters.  Because, as we all know, asking voters for ID is completely and utterly […]

Socialism Depends On Sheeple

I was reminded recently by a troll who got lost and stumbled across this humble blog the we conservative/libertarians are careless in the way we throw around the terms “socialism” or “socialist”. The troll reminded me that “socialism” means state ownership of the means of production and in America the State does not own the means of production. Technically the troll is right. We on the Right tend to use the labels “liberal’ or “progressive” or “socialist” interchangeably. But, we do it with good reason. Whatever label the Left prefers doesn’t matter much to us because we know that the […]

ObamaCare Damage: See Nancy Pelosi Try and Spin Away Hate for ObamaCare

Prepare for nonsensical rambling, as Nancy Pelosi tries to explain away how everyone hates ObamaCare… Yeah, are they going to exempt the unions? I don’t know about that. H/T: Chicks on the Right

A Tale of Two Stories: Taxpayer Funded Left Wing Group Shakes Down Fast Food Joints, Industry Introduces Burger Making Robot

When organized labor went from asking for a fair wage to extorting the auto companies into bankruptcy, the industry cut costs with robots, and workers lost their jobs.  As unions were driving big coal out of the rust belt, the industry introduced continuous miners and massive longwall machines to cut costs, and less workers were needed.  This is now being re-created in the fast food industry, where a taxpayer funded group is in the process of shaking down fast food joints.  Weasel Zippers has more… Via Reason: Labor activists using tactics adopted from the Occupy Wall Street movement are crashing restaurants across […]

Unions: So Great, People Have to be Forced to Join-Union Membership Down 60% Under Scott Walker

Isn’t it funny that when given the free choice, most workers choose NOT to join unions?     Well, that seems to be the case in Wisconsin, ever since Scott Walker signed ACT 10.  We covered that extensively back in 2010, as the unions did not at all want that passed.  Now, we know why.  When given that choice, workers say “no” to the union bosses.  Right Wisconsin has more… MNS – Just two years after the passage of Act 10, Governor Scott Walker’s reform of the collective bargaining law in Wisconsin, new reports filed with the federal government show a dramatic […]

Parallel Universe Alert: Melissa Harris-Perry Claims That Detroit was Killed by too Little Government

Was Detroit bankrupted  by too little government?  Well, if you ask Melissa Harris-Perry, we re living in a parallel universe where human nature and reality itself is the polar opposite of itself, and too little government did bring Detroit to it’s knees.  First, let’s take a look at Harris-Perry’s comments… Um, not only did she deny reality, but she found a way to bash Republicans, who last ran Detroit in 1961. She also misses the high taxes that scared away businesses, the horrific crime rate that scared away the people that didn’t leave because of the taxes, the abysmal education […]

Hilarious: Pure Detroit Video

Steven Crowder has a hilarious, yet tragic new video out about the Democrat Party induced fall of Detroit. Thanks to The Lid for posting it. 

Democrats Take Decades, But Finally Bankrupts Detroit

After decades of Democratic rule, and the taxes, corruption, unions and crime that comes with them, finally pushed Detroit into bankruptcy.  The Chicago Tribune has more… The future of retiree pension and health benefits for thousands of city workers hangs in the balance. Anticipating the filing, investors drove prices of Detroit bonds and notes lower, sending their yields to record highs on Thursday. In a letter accompanying the filing, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder said he had approved a request from Orr to file for Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection noting, “Detroit simply cannot raise enough revenue to meet its current obligations, […]

Union Violence in Chicago

It seems that socialists and teachers (union) were marching in Chicago, or do I repeat myself?  But, in all seriousness, it’s getting warmer, so we will see a spike in union activity, and union violence (This must be repetition day at the CH 2.0)  At any rate, people are not supposed to film socialists and teachers, and Jesse Jackson, because the guy that did got some Alinsky for his trouble.  Here is the video, via Publius Forum… It’s really priceless.  From the juvenile penis comments, to telling the one ethical person there to “not snitch,” these so called adults showed […]

Welcome to Soviet America: Detroit’s Curbs Lead the Way to a More Inept Tomorrow!

That’s right, comrade!   The future is brighter for the disabled people in the People’s Republic of Detroit! Either that, or Detroit’s curbs should have been curbed in the first place.  Motor City Times has a hilariously typical example of big government at work… Friend of MCT, T Shelton sent a link to a very interesting post @ Motor City Muckraker. MCM has a post giving us a small glimpse into the absurdity that is government bureaucracy run wild (at the local and federal level): Two years after the city dished out the tax dollars to install the ramps, the Motor City Muckraker examined the whereabouts of […]

Union Thug to Governor Rick Snyder of Michigan, “We’ll be at your daughter’s soccer game”

My theme for the week here, so it seems, is that if you leave leftists to their own devices long enough, that they’ll show their true nature.  That happened again in Michigan, where a speaker at a public event said (reading between the lines), “that’s a nice daughter you have there. It’d be a shame if something would happen to her.” Here is the video… Remember kids, this is how the left operates.  They want what they want, and if anyone stands in their way, they will be subjected to threats, attacks, intimidation, and harassment.  They aren’t above threatening children, […]

Michigan Union Violence Update: Thugs use Racial Slurs While Destroying Local Business

When you leave the left to their own devices, they’ll most often show you their true thoughts and intentions.  This could not be more true recently in Michigan, where it was seen that union thugs displayed the violence and intelligence that has given them their “thug” designation   Of course, racism has deep roots in both the Democratic party, as well as unions, so it isn’t a surprise that racial slurs flew when a black businessman dared provide a service to Americans for Prosperity. Stacey McCain has the background… Lee Stranahan returned my phone call today. He was in Lansing, Michigan, to cover […]

MIchigan Union Violence Update: Media Ignores it, Leftists Craft Conspriacy Theories

Michigan, Unions, Violence, Goons, Americans for Prosperity, Tent, Attack, Assualt, Intimidation, MSM, Bias, Coverage The post reality world means that it really makes no difference what really happens, and even if you have the most iron-clad evidence, it’s all about who controls the information.  So, with that in mind, let’s take a look at what is happening… Media Ignores Union Violence: As usual, the MSM is refusing to cover union violence.  That is not new, and we shouldn’t be surprised, but it still should be covered, and so it shall.  Newsbusters has a storyto that end… Networks Refuse to Cover Union […]

Union Violence Update: Crowder Assailant Identified

The good thing about modern technology is that we can identify people that engage in stupid activity while in a public space.  This comes in particularly handy when dealing with “peaceful” leftist movements, who are always looking to spread “democracy.”  Then, when they end up spreading violence and thuggery, we have lots of footage to show the world.  Then again, we also get to identify the union thugs that commit said violence. Applying this to the current happenings in Michigan, we see that there may be a positive ID on the man who was filmed punching PJ Media’s Steven Crowder.  […]
