The party is over, all their bluster ultimately meant nothing; and that’s as it should be.
It took almost exactly a year to the day, but the party is over for our greedy union thug enemies in Wisconsin. Just last September 14, the gang at the Dailykos oh so gleefully reported that a Democrat hack judge in Madison had ruled the state’s law effectively ending, “.. collective bargaining rights for most public workers” was not constitutional and could not be enforced. Unions, Dane County Circuit Court Judge Juan Colas ruled, could go on eating their way to the bottom of one public trough after another without coming up for air or being stopped by the taxpayers.
Oh how happy the union thugs were! But alas that was then and this is now. A kangaroo court has been slapped down by a real judge and the green light is out. All the screaming all … Continue Reading:Well THAT didn’t take long; a Federal Judge puts Wisconsin Democrat hack judge in his place

First came the news that 40,000 Longshoremen have quit the AFL-CIO because they have finally figured out that Richard “Fifth Amendment” Trumpka and his gang has been screwing them. The final wakeup call came with Trumpka’s support of both Obamacare and amnesty disguised as “immigration reform.” The dockworkers have come to recognize this two headed monster will destroy them and they opted to vote for a break from union control with their feet. While the official reasons for the mass pull out sound like these men are leaving because the AFL-CIO isn’t liberal enough, don’t believe it for a minute. The “leaders” of this pull out have only run up to get in the front of the parade out the door. The men aren’t fools; they can sense what is coming.
The dues hit the Trumpka gang takes should be very substantial. What will the AFL-CIO do? Why, raise the … Continue Reading:Unionized labor is a failure. What does it mean for Obamacare?

An honest person (which of course excludes most Democrats), understands that any “War on Women” in this country it is most certainly being conducted by Democrats at all levels of government. “A Republican War on Women” is a Freudian use of words, invented by a lapdog media to deflect the truth. Despite the fact that we hear the phrase over and over again from a Democrat controlled media there is no such thing as a Republican War on Women.
Nevertheless, there is an actual war that is unquestionably being waged by the Republican Party against its union enemies. There is little fanfare to this war; it is quietly being conducted in some formerly very strong union states like Michigan. In spite of a general media blackout on the subject this war is being won by Republicans determined to break the headlock grip greedy unions have had on their state over the past fifty years.
The … Continue Reading:There is no GOP “War on Women” but there is a war on unions and we’re winning

Remember all those dire predictions about the damage Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s public employee union contract reforms would do? Remember the angst of Wisconsin’ teachers and other “vital workers” over what they saw as the end of the line for their cushy jobs and control over their state? Well they were right to be worried. They are getting crushed and put out of existence.
Now that two years have passed and the dust has settled, it’s safe to say the union protestors who filled the legislative offices and camped out in Wisconsin’s state capital were actually optimistic. The results of Walker’s changes have been more devastating than either side could have feared or hoped for depending on their point of view.
Since Act 10 passed two years ago, public employees’ unions have been in a steep decline they may not be able to come out of. Like a plane whose engines have failed … Continue Reading:Fun reading; Wisconsin teachers’ unions in full collapse since tangling with Scott Walker

It seems big labor is getting nervous about anticipated disastrous effects on the healthcare benefits of union membership by Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act. So nervous are they in fact that James P. Hoffa and organized labor comrades Joseph Hansen and Don Taylor addressed their concerns in personal letter form to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, a clear break from the more conventional late night exchange of cash and instructions so common between labor kingpins and Democrat politicians.
“We can no longer stand silent in the face of elements of the Affordable Care Act that will destroy the very health and wellbeing of our members,” wrote the 3 union bosses to leaders of the political party to which organized labor donated some $800 million in 2008 and $700 million two years later. (1) “Congress wrote this law; we voted for you. We have a problem; you need to fix it.” Though Hoffa didn’t specifically … Continue Reading:Big labor finally getting the shaft from Democrat politicians
