Obama: 100% union, full speed ahead

Fundamentally transforming the U.S.A. via union-only fiat
The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the National Mediation Board (NMB) seeking records of any communication between two of its three members – both former union officials – and any union official or lobbyist concerning a dramatic rule change proposal on how a union is imposed on non-union railway and airline industry workers.

The NMB, the federal agency tasked with mediating labor disputes within the railroad and airline industries, is poised to roll back 75 years of precedent and change labor union organizing regulations, greasing the skids for union organizers to lock industry workers into union ranks. The new procedure would stack the deck in favor of unionization by granting a union monopoly bargaining power over workers if the union “wins” an election, no matter how few eligible workers actually participate in the vote.

In fact, this means that a small bloc of workers could force union boss “representation” on the whole group as opposed to a true majority of all workers deciding for themselves.

'H8 group' masques as human rights advocate

A funny thing happened on the way to this week’s column — I got “targeted,” “frozen,” “personalized” and “polarized.”

In other words, I got lumped in with the majority of Americans as the “radical right” — you know, the scary people who believe in God, the Constitution, family values, and an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay.

“Targeting” the opposition is the tactic made famous by left-wing political theorist Saul Alinsky, who wrote in “Rules for Radicals,” that one key route to power is to “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” This goes along with another of Alinsky’s rules: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule.”

That’s the methodology employed by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a so-called human-rights group, in a new report called “Rage on the Right,” which seeks to convince Americans that “the anger seething across the American political landscape” as represented by the Tea Party movement is “shot through with rich veins of radical ideas, conspiracy theories and racism.”

Indonesian community organizers rise up

'The One' was once one of them

Most recently, student protests have broken out in Indonesia against Obama's planned visit to the land of his youth. One might think that Indonesia, especially, would welcome Obama as a favorite son. But Muslims in the world's largest Muslim country don't see it that way. Here, protesters hurl shoes at a picture of Obama:

Most liberals liked it when an Islamic militant threw his shoe at George Bush. I've seen no comment on their feelings about having the same courtesy extended to Obama.

The students also call Obama a terrorist:

Angela Davis Month extended into March

Bowdoin welcomes leftwing terror to campus
"A lot of people have called me a radical," said Angela Davis to a nearly full house in Pickard Theater on Wednesday night. "And my response is, I don't know if I'm a radical. I try to be radical, I try very hard."

From her involvement in the Black Panther Party, to her vice presidential bids on the Communist Party ticket, to her current work to abolish prisons (not to mention over haul the existing education, health care and housing systems), Davis has been an icon of radical activism.

Feds subdue private sector

But SEIU, AFSCME bigs are still underpaid

Federal employees earn higher average salaries than private-sector workers in more than eight out of 10 occupations, a USA TODAY analysis of federal data finds.

Accountants, nurses, chemists, surveyors, cooks, clerks and janitors are among the wide range of jobs that get paid more on average in the federal government than in the private sector.

Overall, federal workers earned an average salary of $67,691 in 2008 for occupations that exist both in government and the private sector, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data. The average pay for the same mix of jobs in the private sector was $60,046 in 2008, the most recent data available.

These salary figures do not include the value of health, pension and other benefits, which averaged $40,785 per federal employee in 2008 vs. $9,882 per private worker, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis.
