Elizabeth Warren, Harvard law professor and Wall Street scourge, formally opened her campaign for the Democratic US Senate nomination in Massachusetts last week.
Barack Obama has been at pains to convince voters that he cares about jobs. It seems to be a hard sell. But he certainly can demonstrate that he cares about certain jobs -- the 7 percent of private-sector jobs and 36 percent of public-sector jobs held by union members.
They appeal to comity, defined as a friendly social atmosphere, social harmony. That was undoubtedly Barack Obama’s greatest attribute as a candidate. He promised a new politics, a new cordiality. No more red state/blue divisions. He touted his Senate friendship with Oklahoma ’s Tom Coburn. It was genuine.
While most Americans celebrated Labor Day as a nice occasion to enjoy the end of summer with friends and family, Union bosses and Democratic politicians used the occasion to attack Republicans and Tea Party conservatives.
This year, Labor Day fell three days before President Obama plans to address the nation on the subject of jobs.
To answer the question of "how scared do you think you should you be?" by the sudden downturn we observe in the S&P 500's dividend futures, we first need to determine what's behind the projected decline that we've been observing since 30 August 2011, when the dividend futures for 31 August 2011 were released.
After Hoffa's tirade, Barack Obama gave one of his nauseating can't-we-all-just-get-along pleas for Republicans and troubled citizens to blindly and silently support the blah-blah-blah he's scheduled to roll out in yet another jobs speech on Thursday night.
It’s Labor Day weekend, so I’ve decided to unionize myself for 3 days and go on strike, just to see what it’s like. By “strike” I mean drink alcohol and sleep in everyday.
Like most Americans during this three-day holiday, I come to praise labor, not actually do any of it. Has there ever been a people that sermonized more about the importance of the work ethic -- but was so enamored of labor-saving devices?
In my hands was a small, multicolored clay turtle that I had made and painted at elementary school. I carefully walked up the steps to the front of our home, excited to show my mother what I had made and give it to her. As I opened the screen door, I dropped my handcrafted treasure, and it broke into pieces. I sat down and cried.
This time of year is traditionally about the start of school, the start of football and the end of summer. Labor Day is emblematic of the season, and with Labor Day comes the annual "Jerry Lewis Telethon" to raise money for muscular dystrophy research and treatment.
America is in a steep decline because of the Obama administration's anti-business policies that have blocked economic growth.
Democrats are counting heavily on President Obama's upcoming Labor Day job creation speech to allay the fears of the stock market, the international investor community and the American people. Much like Waiting for Godot, there's been a lot of hype and chatter but very little action.
