Obama’s Senate Dems Prove They are NOT Interested in Working With Republicans
  6 Oct 2011     9:35 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat from Nevada, has just proven that while Obama runs around the country on campaign appearances claiming that he wants to work with Republicans to “pass this bill,” his party has no interest whatsoever in actually doing so. Reid is trying to pass new rules to prevent Republicans form being able to have their say on what is going on in the Senate right now.
Reid has deployed the rarely used “nuclear option” to prevent Republicans from being able to employ a move called a …

The UAW’s Waning Days?
  25 Sep 2011     11:51 am      Warner Todd Huston

Reuters has a very interesting article detailing the fall of the United Auto Workers (UAW) in the modern era. It is a long article, but if you are interested in the way the UAW intends to keep itself relevant to the auto industry on into the future, it is worth the read.
It is also a good article if you want a glimpse of the possible end to the UAW. Its deep financial troubles, its steady loss of members and plants to represent, and its powerlessness to spread its cancer to …

Obama’s Mounting Scandals
  23 Sep 2011     12:12 pm      Warner Todd Huston

The Heritage Foundation has a post giving a run down of some of the scandals mounting in the Obama administration… you know, the most ethical administration ever? Yeah. That one.
Most of them have to do with Obama’s penchant for crony capitalism. Like the good socialist he is, Obama wants to pick the winners and losers in the world of business so he shovels mounds of the taxpayer’s cash to the companies of pals and donors so that they will… well, apparently so that they will give him money back in …

Solyndra: Green Jobbery, Green Robbery
  14 Sep 2011     1:06 pm      Warner Todd Huston

We have come to learn something about our president. He really loves green. But what we can’t quite decipher is if that green is green jobs and energies or just the good old fashioned green of tax money. Whatever the case, it sure is true that the green of U.S. tax dollars is far more prevalent with “O” than those mythical green jobs he’s trying to fund with it and this mess with failed green company Solyndra is revealing quite a lot.
Now, firstly lets dispense with the left’s weak defense …

Great New Ap That Will be Destroyed By Government
  13 Sep 2011     1:03 pm      Warner Todd Huston

There is a new smart phone ap out there that is a pretty good idea. It’s called “CLOO’.” Unfortunately, no matter how good it is there is an absolute certainty that the government — whether local, state, or federal, or even all of them — will destroy this great idea with regulatory red tape.
The CLOO’ smartphone ap will help folks in metro areas make a few extra dollars while helping others find a place to go… literally. The idea is that folks that live in a downtown section of any …

AFL-CIO Prez: Hey, Remember 9/11? Was a Great Union Moment, Right?
  10 Sep 2011     7:54 pm      Warner Todd Huston

In one of the most disgusting examples of the self-absorption of the union mind set, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka decided that his 9/11 memorial would not be much about 9/11, but would instead be just another excuse to say how great unions are and how evil conservatives are. This isn’t just gauche, but insulting, infuriating, and just plain ignorant. Not only that, but it is most certainly disrespectful of the fallen and just plain un-American.
But, then again, that describes unions in just about every instance, doesn’t it?
Disgustingly, the AFL-CIO’s Trumka …

AP Editorializing in the ‘News’ Again
  7 Sep 2011     12:54 pm      Warner Todd Huston

In a recent article on the dissatisfaction of Big Labor once again we see making its way into what is otherwise supposed to be a normal, everyday “news” story, the Associated Press indulging its penchant for using biased labels and left-wing “definitions” in order to push a left-wing agenda on its readers. Even while presenting straight “news” the AP can’t resist swinging all terms and discussions to the liberal side of the fence, a tactic that it employs to push every story to the left.
In an article headlined, “Labor Unions …

Illinois Ranks Bottom of States With Worst Government Unions Accountability
  31 Aug 2011     1:03 pm      Warner Todd Huston

-By Warner Todd Huston
A new study finds that Illinois ranks at the bottom of states with the worst climate of government union accountability in the nation. The Land of Lincoln ranks 47th in the nation of out of control, unaccountable government unions says the Competitive Enterprise Institute’s new “Big Labor vs. Taxpayers Index.”
The index ranks every state on “23 individual aspects to determine the degree to which states favor organized labor and which favor taxpayers.”

The Index provides a national narrative on labor policy. Analyzing 1,150 labor laws and regulations throughout …

Warren Buffet Tax Shirker and Hypocrite
  30 Aug 2011     11:00 am      Warner Todd Huston

Why is it that every time we meet yet another socialist-loving, left-winger he ends up being an utter hypocrite? This time it’s tax-whiner — and now known tax shirker — Warren Buffet, the investment giant that has been telling anyone that will listen that “the rich” don’t pay enough in taxes.
Well, apparently, he’s right, the rich don’t pay enough in taxes. Well, not in general, just in his specific case, anyway. The New York Post has discovered that his famous company, Berkshire Hathaway, has unpaid back taxes going back to …

Ohio Businessman Suffers Union Harassment, Property Damage, Violence, Finally a Shooting
  17 Aug 2011     11:51 am      Warner Todd Huston

Once again we see the un-American criminality of violence-prone union thugs, this time with the disgusting tale of the IBEW carrying on a years long intimidation campaign against a Toledo area, non-union electrical contractor which has progressed from mere harassment to now a shooting.
On August 10, the owner of King Electrical Services, John King, was shot in the arm with a small caliber pistol outside his home an act that has been the culmination of a years long union intimidation campaign by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW).
King has …

CNN/Krugman: A Space Alien Attack Will Save Us (Disses FDR, Wants a Fake War?)
  15 Aug 2011     2:53 pm      Warner Todd Huston

CNNs Fareed Zakaria and The New York Times’ Paul Krugman have solved our economic problems. They’ve decided that a space alien attack will save us. Aside from the guffaw factor of space aliens, there was so much wrong with this CNN segment that we must lay them out for discussion.
First on the clip is some pinhead from Harvard claiming that “infrastructure spending, that’s great.” He says he’d even borrow money for such programs. This guy thinks that if we had another giant stimulus (like a WWII Works program), why …

When Losing 120,000 Jobs Is a Good Thing
  15 Aug 2011     3:32 am      John Hawkins

Normally, hearing that 120,000 American jobs might be about to disappear would be a terrible thing. However, when we’re talking about government jobs that are no longer needed at the post office, it’s cause for celebration because it means billions of taxpayer dollars aren’t going to be thrown down a rathole.
The financially strapped U.S. Postal Service is proposing to cut its workforce by 20 percent and to withdraw from the federal health and retirement plans because it believes it could provide benefits at a lower cost.
The layoffs would be achieved …

Union Thuggery: More Criminality in Verizon Strike
  13 Aug 2011     12:00 pm      Warner Todd Huston

In Pennsylvania union thuggery, violations of the law, and criminality is abundant in the strike by the Communications Workers of America against Verizon. It’s expected that unionistas don’t respect businesses, of course, but not to respect the safety of children? That’s beyond the pale.
Sadly, theft, property destruction, and otherwise breaking the law is no hurdle union thugs won’t jump. In fact, it is threats of and use of violence and thuggery that unions have always relied on to extort money from the business community. The situation in Pennsylvania is no …

Rick Perry’s NAFTA Superhighway Problem
  12 Aug 2011     3:01 pm      Rachel Alexander

Move over Mitt Romney. Rick Perry has a bigger problem to defend from his tenure as governor. Remember the NAFTA Superhighway project? It was to consist of a two-mile wide $184 billion transit system of toll roads, rail lines and utilities from the Texas-Mexico border all the way up to the Minnesota-Canadian border, to make it easier to ship foreign goods from China and other countries into North America. It became so unpopular in Texas that the Texas portion of it, called the Trans-Texas Corridor, was renamed and mostly disbanded a couple …

Unions Lose BIG In Wisconsin Recall Efforts
  10 Aug 2011     12:45 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Oh, the union thugs in Wisconsin will certainly try to act as if winning a mere two of the six recall elections of the Republican State Senators in the Cheese State was a big win… but it wasn’t. In fact, this recall nonsense shows that the union issues were a huge failure. After all, they even shied from using the union issues to push the recall efforts after they got going because they were looking like a losing issue.
In fact, the two Republicans that lost their effort to beat the …

Obama’s New CAFE Standards Will Cost Us All More Money
  5 Aug 2011     12:22 pm      Warner Todd Huston

The Obama administration has been touting new Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards to be imposed on America’s automobile manufacturers saying that it will save all Americans money at the pumps. Unfortunately, there are all sorts of hidden costs of which the administration isn’t noting, costs that will drive up the price of driving in multiple ways for all of us.
The new standards are supposed to raise the miles per gallon requirements from the 2016 mandate of 35.5 mpg to 56 mpg by the year 2025. The administration claims that …

The Union Job Security Act Equals Endless Road Construction
  1 Aug 2011     2:35 pm      Rachel Alexander

Have you noticed how there is more road construction than usual lately, which never seems to end? In some states it has gotten so bad their departments of transportation have set up road closure email alerts on each highway. This is a direct result of President Obama’s stimulus spending. Last summer, Obama proposed spending $50 billion on highways, bridges, transit, high-speed rail and airports. During his State of the Union speech in January, he declared, “we will aim to put more Americans to work repairing crumbling roads and bridges.”
The federal …

Awarded $20,000 of Other People’s Money for Being Muslim
  27 Jul 2011     2:30 pm      Dave Blount

September 11, 2001 sure turned America into a great place to be Muslim. The latest outrage:
A federal jury awarded $20,000 in compensatory damages Wednesday to a Tulsa woman who was not hired to work at a local Abercrombie Kids store because she wears a headscarf, but jurors opted not to award her any punitive damages.
Good thing this happened in relatively sane Tulsa. In San Francisco, she might have walked off with $millions.
The payoff was for “emotional distress.” Every time I read about the leftist screwballs who run our legal system …

Chart: The Few, The Proud, The Employed Americans (It’s Actually Worse Than You Think)
  12 Jul 2011     3:18 am      John Hawkins

From The Atlantic.
Even though the unemployment rate is technically 9.2%, the employment-population ratio fell to 58.2%, matching its recession low. But it might help to put this number into perspective: just how bad is it?
…Prior to this recession, the unemployment-population ratio hasn’t been this low since 1983. At that time, it actually dropped all the way down to around 57%. But it didn’t have as far to fall, having maxed out at just 60% in the years prior. Prior to the recent recession, the ratio was above 63%.
What this is …
