Brett McMahon Takes on Obama

Progressives truly H8 free-market America
Even for a lifetime politician, President Obama showed remarkable cynicism with his assertion Thursday that it's time for companies to "step up" and increase hiring.

Specifically, Obama said "the issue here is not uncertainty. The issue is they've got to start placing their bets on America" and that "it's time for companies to step up."

Since the president's entire work force experience outside of politics consists only of "community organizing" and a law school professorship, here are some thoughts from the real world on why we as employers could increase hiring if his administration would simply get out of the way:

Rewarding friends

My company has been a leader in the construction industry for decades because we hire, fire, promote and respect employees and managers based on their merit.

Yet one of Obama's first official acts was to sign a "project labor agreement" executive order giving preference to unionized companies for public construction projects, even though 85 percent of private-sector construction employees choose not to join a union.

Punishing "enemies"

Now the president's National Labor Relations Board has started a fight with aircraft maker Boeing, which began construction on a new production facility in South Carolina where the company envisions fewer strikes by a militant union and a generally favorable environment.

The government is seeking to block the company's move, a dangerous precedent that would allow the government to tell businesses what states they can and cannot operate in.

Again, this is a direct threat to the employment not only of those thousands of South Carolina workers, but to the entire American work force that will be less desirable for international investors choosing where to place their money.

Worse yet, this fight is clearly not about letting employers "step up" to hire good employees, but about a radical agenda within the president's NLRB to control the flow of capital and jobs.

Ben Stein Takes On The Arab Spring

Obama-Lamestream narrative is a smokescreen for WH P2P with Iran


Ben Stein: "Arab Spring" is a fraud

Now, I am going to tell you the truth about the so-called "Arab Spring," and about the Middle East generally right now.

First, the "Arab Spring" as a force for democracy, human rights and peace in Egypt seems to me to be a fraud.

The dictator and his entourage who were kicked out in Egypt were pro-West, a bit restrained on Israel, open to free enterprise, and resistant to Iranian-sponsored terror.

Egypt is now rapidly becoming anti-Israel, pro-Iran, pro the Iranian-sponsored terrorist group Hamas, and very far from being pro-human rights. They are arresting businessmen right and left in Egypt just for the crime of being successful. They have arrested Mubarak's sons, and have said they plan to try Mubarak.

The most potent of the political forces in Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood, hates the United States, loathes Israel, condemns the killing of bin Laden (whom they praised as a martyr), and have been wedded to terror for their entire existence.

Oh, P.S, they are closely connected with Adolph Hitler.

They will probably take over Egypt completely sooner or later.

As the terrorist government of Syria cracks down on its own people, the U.N. Security Council does exactly nothing about it.

Has anyone noticed that the common denominator of all the successful Arab street movements is that they are sympathetic to Iran? When the dust settles, Iran is going to own the Middle East - except for maybe Saudi Arabia, if we have the guts to help them (which I very much doubt).

We are going to lose our pals in Bahrain - not nice guys, but pals of the U.S.A. anyway - and we are going to lose our pals in Yemen, and it will possibly have an actual al Qaeda government.

There is a gigantic regional coup by Iran taking place. We are doing very little, if anything, to stop it.

We are going to regret helping the Egyptians kick out Mubarak as much as we regret helping Khomeini force out the Shah.

You can call it "Arab Spring" if you want. But with Iran now the regional superpower, it is a lot more like an extremely bleak Mideast winter.

You heard it here first.

Class struggle(in Marxist ideology) the conflict of interests between the workers and the ruling class in a capitalist society, regarded as inevitably violent.
"Oh [Muslim] brothers, the nation that excels in the death industry, and knows how to die a noble [death], Allah grants it a precious life in this world and eternal bliss in the Afterlife. The only weakness that shall humiliate us is the love of this world and hating death. Therefore we have prepared your souls for great action, strive for death - and life will be given to you."-- From Palwatch translation of The Muslim Brotherhood handbook.

SEIU Smacked Down in Michigan

Will other union-oppressed labor-states follow suit and roll back Craig Becker's fascistic scheme?
Gov. Rick Snyder's administration has settled its portion of a lawsuit challenging union dues for child-care providers who work at home.

The state has been dismissed from the lawsuit in exchange for pledging that it will never force child-care workers to pay dues as a condition of getting public subsidies to watch kids from low-income families. The Snyder administration ended the practice earlier this year but a lawsuit still is active in federal court.

Child-care workers were granted union status under Gov. Jennifer Granholm's administration. It's been controversial because many providers believe unions have no role in their private business.

The state has agreed to pay $25,000 in legal fees to the National Right to Work Foundation. The lawsuit still seeks dues refunds from the union.

The High Price of Social Justice Fraud

Progressive bilking scheme EXPOSED!
San Francisco's much-heralded "social justice" requirements for city contracts are costing local taxpayers millions of dollars a year in overcharges, according to workers in departments ranging from the Municipal Transportation Agency to the Department of Emergency Management.

In one case, a Muni worker said the city paid $3,000 for a vehicle battery tray. Such parts can be found online for $12 to $300, depending on the type of vehicle. City officials said they couldn't verify that purchase, saying the trays are usually bought in bulk with the battery.

Other city purchasing policies, if followed, would mean paying about $240 for getting a copy of a key that actually cost a worker $1.35 to get done at a hardware store on his break, the employee said. Another city worker called the use of catalog pricing for supplies "Pentagon-style purchasing."

Markups from approved vendors range from 10 to 150 percent, employees said, with one calling the city's requirement that contractors provide health care benefits for domestic partners "the expensive white elephant standing in the middle of the room (that) no one wants to mention."

BigLabor Defends Forced Unionism

Worker-choice delayed as oppressive Dems stall bargaining modernization
Two bills that would turn Maine into a "right-to-work" state, once a stated priority for Republican Gov. Paul LePage, have lain dormant in the Legislature, and their fate remains uncertain.

Opponents of the bills say that there aren't enough votes to pass them in the Republican-controlled Legislature, and that recent events that have sparked labor protests in Maine and nationally may have diminished support for the legislation.

The bills, sponsored by Rep. Tom Winsor, R-Norway, apply to workers in the private and public sectors. They would prohibit requiring workers to pay dues and fees to unions as a condition of employment.
