SEIU on Townhall

John Ransom - Thu Jul 28

The SEIU, which has strong ties to the Obama administration, has been accused of using ties to the federal government to harass companies such as Sodexo. The alleged methods include using regulatory or government action to pressure or embarrass the company or its employees. If true, how high does that knowledge in the Obama administration go? ... more

First, there is the problem of the messenger. A messenger can undermine the message of the best message out there. Obama, for example, would have a hard time convincing voters that he’d like to pass a balanced budget amendment, but those darn Republicans just won’t let him. Pig s would have to fly first. ... more

Over the weekend several people asked what was in the various plans and how much would really be cut. Unfortunately details are scant and the plans keep changing. However, anything short of the "grand bargain" has no real substance. It is debatable if the "grand bargain" has substance. ... more

Estonia happens to be in possession of oil shale. And while we have whittled away our time doing the environmental hokey pokey, dithering about where when how and why to develop resources all the while quaking in our boots over the fear that we would invoke the wrath of the Environmental Left, the country of Estonia got down to the business of making oil shale work. ... more

In this week’s Email, Hate Mail and Comments column Odin the Intellectual asks: “Does this racist twit ever write anything serious?” although it’s not immediately clear that he’s not talking about himself; Henry says that we have to use a better message; and Lilly? Well, Lilly is just her usual self. ... more

Lincoln Brown - Fri Jul 1

Maybe by the time it is said and done, we will have a candidate, be it a Perry, a Bachman a Cain or a Paul who will speak truth to power and the American People. Lord knows we haven’t had someone like that in a while. Whoever has the guts to say that in a clear voice has my vote. ... more

Lincoln Brown - Tue Jun 28

Tim Geithner wants to hike taxes on small businesses to help pay the way for people who don’t work at places like small businesses. If Timmy gets his way, if we show a significant enough profit such as more than 250 grand a year, the Marble Mafia will move in and demand an extra piece of the action. ... more

Wednesday's job report from ADP showed that private employers added only 38,000 in May. Home sales have continued to lag, GDP has been revised sharply downward, and inflation has taken a larger bite out of corporate and family budgets. We told you so. ... more

Many countries have restrictions and requirements on doctors, nurses, lawyers etc. Greece carries the idea to extreme. Restrictions will be lifted July 2. That is a much needed maneuver, and the same applies in the US as well. ... more

Mike Shedlock - Mon May 23

Everyone wants something, and they want to take it from someone else to get it. In the US, the SEIU is right at the top of the list in wanting to pick the pockets of everyone else for their own self-serving benefit ... more

The far left has attempted to portray their elderly hero, Frances Fox Piven, as a lonely shut-in who spends her time knitting mittens and eating Werther’s Originals in her New York apartment. But the truth is that age has not dampened Piven’s appetite for radical socialist political activities. ... more

John Ransom - Sat Apr 2

We discovered once again, as Lincoln once said of a contemporary, that Obama can squeeze the smallest idea into the greatest number of words of anyone who has ever been president. We also learned that when things get really tough and leadership is called for, Obama takes his cues from Hillary, just like the 3AM video from Saturday Night Live. ... more

Kyle Olson - Mon Feb 28

As government employee unions continue to rally across the country in support of the Wisconsin protesters, they are becoming completely unhinged. (Being surrounded by hygienically-challenged individuals who continuously shout mind-numbing slogans will do that.) ... more
