The Left’s Hate and Threats of Death

Posted by courage On March - 10 - 2011

Update at end, the violence continues.

As a Tea Party Patriot I believe in freedom and fiscal responsibility, because of this belief I’ve been called a racist.  While at local rallies, I witnessed MoveOn attempt to instigate violence with aggressive, in your face screaming and I am called a hate monger.  The former Speaker of the House accused American people concerned about the direction of their country of being astroturf.  A madman creates horrendous violence in Arizona and the local sheriff immediately blames patriots with no proof.  Yes at every turn Tea Party Patriots have been villanized, with no substantial proof.   Even the supposed incident which happened in D.C. during the health care debate, where Representatives were allegedly called the “n-” word was NEVER verified even though a $100K reward was offered for proof.  All false accusations.

What we know with absolute certainty is the left uses violent rhetoric and actions without any hint of decency.  Continually they make threats and here is the latest, directly after the “tolerant left.”  This email was sent to Wisconsin Senators after their vote to limit collective bargaining.

Feds May File Suit Against States: Backdoor Union Card Check

Posted by courage On January - 15 - 2011

Back in August of 2009,  I wrote my opposition to the proposed legislation called “The Employee Free Choice Act,” legislation which would remove secret ballot from union organizing.  This legislation introduced in early March 2009 by Democrats high on their election wins and was an effort to payback union organizers who helped them gain control of Congress and the White House.  The card check legislation never made it out of the House committee and is sitting where all horrendous  freedom limiting proposed legislation should be, in the trash heap.

What is becoming common to the Obama administration are attempts to institute law through the Executive branch by having departments and agencies write new rules, in essence creating laws which have never passed Congress. Heck what do we need Congress for anyway?   This administration appears to believe they alone know what is right direction for the country and if Congress cannot or won’t do their bidding KING Obama will make it so…

Senator Harry Reid is a Buffoon

Posted by courage On June - 3 - 2010

From the Washington Times:

During a press conference last Friday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, told reporters about a bipartisan amicus brief to the Supreme Court supporting the right of military families to bury the remains of their loved ones without being protested. I asked Mr. Reid if the same right to privacy should extend to private citizens whose homes are protested by public unions. Mr. Reid dodged the issue saying, “I don’t know anything about lawns and Bank of America executives.”

Of course, why would Reid know anything about the SEIU workers who stormed the home of a Bank of America lawyer and protested on his front lawn?  This act of terrorism by SEIU thugs was widely reported on by the media when it happened.

Are these congresscritters that disconnected from what is happening in this country or is his feigned ignorance because SEUI is intimately tied to the Democratic party and could be considered the enforcement arm of the party?

In any case.. Senator Reid, you are a buffoon!

Unions Suck !

Previously I have identified as a card carrying union member, don’t hold this against me; I have no choice in the matter I work in a closed shop.  For years I honestly thought unions were a good thing, protecting workers and such… yet unions are no longer about the average Jane or Joe worker.. they have become big business and are concerned most about the dues they collect and the members they can scrap in to their dismal pension programs.  Last week I wrote about the proposed tax on “premium”  health care packages and how that was going to affect union workers.

Update at end…

hard hat

“No tax on the middle class,” was the Obama mantra prior to the election.  Did you union, blue collar workers feel all comfy cozy that you would not see more money flushed down the toilet in Washington?  Ha.. little did you know..  buddy you aren’t middle class, you’re one of those in the elite snotty upper class that the real middle class thinks deserves to be hit with increased taxes.  What you only make around $45,000 or $55,000/ year.. tough, Washington needs help paying for their health care reform ( what Senator can we bribe now) legislation.

WASHINGTONPresident Barack Obama signaled to House Democratic leaders Wednesday that they’ll have to drop their opposition to taxing high-end health insurance plans to pay for health coverage for millions of uninsured Americans.

In a meeting at the White House, Obama expressed his preference for the insurance tax contained in the Senate’s health overhaul bill, but largely opposed by House Democrats and organized labor, Democratic aides said. The aides spoke on condition of anonymity because the meeting was private.  (emphasis mine)

Something most union workers do not know.. what does the health care plan you have cost the company?  Hmmm… puzzled?

Here’s a scenario, approximately 8 years ago my union was told by the company that our health care cost them $1,200 per month/ employee which they used as a bargaining chip to lower pay increases.

SEIU Illegal Voter Fraud in Fresno.. Homecare Workers

Posted by courage On November - 16 - 2009

From the National Union of Healthcare Workers:

Among the illegal tactics reported:

  • SEIU staff tampered with workers’ ballots, by voiding the ballots of workers who marked their ballot for NUHW, and by collecting ballots directly from workers’ mailboxes.
  • Senior SEIU officials instructed staff to handle ballots in violation of election rule, and advised staff on how to do so in a way that was legally deniable.
  • SEIU organizers threatened Latino caregivers that SEIU would “call immigration” and have them deported in retaliation unless they voted for SEIU.
  • SEIU officials instructed staff to threaten and lie to voters that they would lose their  wages, their health insurance, and even their jobs unless they voted for SEIU.

This underscores the very reasons why I believe The Employee Free Choice should never pass.  Read my article on this legislation here.

Unions care only about their membership numbers, centering on the amount they can receive from monthly dues and mandatory pension  contributions.  If the Employee Free Choice Act should ever pass the Senate, those now free to make choices will find themselves under the weight of these corrupt organizations.

Unions Pushing Their Agenda

Posted by courage On October - 17 - 2009

H/T to One Nerve Left: Coming to a home near you… SEIU

One Nerve lays out how providers of home health care for loved ones are being forced in to join a union, read her article at the link above.  First Illinois, will Indiana follow suit?  Who knows but those that believe unions have the best interest of members at heart are sadly mistaken.  Unions have become big business; they exchange manufactured products which traditional business markets for a sliver of the rank and files toil or would that be soul?  Unions have long since quit negotiating for their members, their sole concern is the percentage of dues they can extort from each members pay monthly.  Just look at these home health care providers and see what the pay-out is to the unions.

What would the unions get for this new responsibility if the 3,000 families voted to be represented?

“They’d get 2 percent of whatever the state sends us,” Harris said. “And if I chose not to be a member, I’d still have to pay my ‘fair share.’ “
