A key component to Detroit’s bankruptcy plan reveals The Affordable Health Care Act as a ploy to bail out deeply blue cities and their corrupt public employee unions.
Ignorance is bliss?
As reported by USA Today... all types of federal employees - from scientists to custodial staff - have had huge increases in pay over the past five years.
Judging by the number of comments on the story, liberals are very offended that I believe Obama is the "The Worst of All Possible Presidents." Somehow, I think, I'll learn to live with the guilt. Over time, I might even learn to laugh about it. Yep: Time's up.
Obama has offered us nothing but our blood, our toil, our tears and our sweat; and for what? So public employees can continue to bust public budgets on Cadillac benefits that you and I can’t afford. All this while he pushes "austerity" down the throats of a sovereign Greece.
The next stage of the Aimless Occupation of America is upon us: On Wednesday, rabble-rousers in the San Francisco Bay Area will walk off jobs they don't have and encourage everyone else around the country to abandon work to protest high unemployment.
As Occupy Wall Street demonstrations have gone national and now global, observers are taking note of the prominent role of labor unions in this anti-business crusade. The rote denunciations of “corporate greed” at these events could be lifted from almost any AFL-CIO convention speech.
Forced unionism and forced collective bargaining is tantamount to slavery as I have noted before.
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.
Any officer, firefighter, or teacher who can find a better job at more money in the private sector would be free to do so. I suspect few would. To prohibit future fights, the unions should be dissolved and collective bargaining ended.
A big week for the unions, with racketeering charges coming for the SEIU. We heard from Illinios Roy, who I think is really just Transport Secretary Ray Lahood in disguise. Plus what week wouldn't be complete without someone comparing Republicans to Hitler?
It took an amazing amount of gall, guile, or both for a former Ted Kennedy political staffer to decry supposed Tea Party “terrorist tactics” in seeking to rein in the debt drowning our nation.
Does he finally get it? "Emanuel said he intends to get private companies to clean the city’s airports and libraries, work now done by city employees. Operators at the city’s water-bill call center and employee benefit managers also will see their jobs outsourced. Those union workers will receive 30- and 45-day layoff notices."
