Let us remember that the movement for permanent worker organizing rights began with the brave and resilient men and women of Pennsylvania and West Virginia. God bless the United Mine Workers of America.
Camaro Move To Michigan Touches Bigger Issues for Canada Auto Manufacturing
Dec. 26, 2012 by Haig Stoddard in Counting Cars
GM sights costs of doing business in Canadian UAW UNION SHOPS, will move the Camero production from Oshawa, Onterio to Lansing, MI
"It should not be all that surprising to the Canadian Auto Workers that General Motors will shift production of the Chevrolet Camaro to its Lansing, MI, plant"
Mom, apple pie, the flag, and Oreos--what's more American than that? Not any more. Kraft Foods has posted a photo of an Oreo cookie stuffed with a rainbow filling on its Facebook page to publicize its "proud history of celebrating diversity and inclusiveness." (Click on "Read More" for a link to the photo.)
Why do Oreos have to make a social statement? Shut-up and make cookies that taste good and have absolutely no nutritional value.
A simple question with what is probably an easy answer.
Are the President and his campaign team not nearly as bright as they are made out to be or are they so arrogant and out of touch that they think no one will call them on it?
Have you ever wondered why a pair of shoes that seems to cost the manufacturer so little to produce, costs YOU, the consumer, so much to purchase? There are various “hidden” costs placed on shoes sold in the United States, for example:
A pair of shoes costs a footwear producer $20.00 to manufacture at their plant.
There are $7.40 in duties/tariffs/taxes placed on the product BEFORE it even comes to a U.S. shelf~

Pink Slime For School Lunch: Government Buying 7 Million Pounds Of Ammonia-Treated Meat For Meals
Pink slime the ammonia-treated meat rejected by major fast food restaurants is being brought in by the tons for the nation's school lunch program.
Over 1,600 UAW members will attend the National Community Action Program Legislative Conference this week in Washington, D.C. The UAW's website describes the conference as an opportunity to "discuss the union's legislative and political priorities for the coming year, meet with members of Congress to advocate on behalf of working families and prepare for the union's 2012 electoral campaign." One gets a pretty good idea of the UAW's "political priorities" by the list of scheduled speakers including President Obama, Barney Frank, and Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards.
It looks like Indiana has started a trend by becoming a right-to-work state. Now Minnesota residents have indicated--by a 2 to 1 margin--that they are interested in adopting that position. It seems that people are becoming tired of union bullying, protecting ineffective workers, and using millions of dollars of union dues to support liberal politicians who--like Marcy Kaptur--only focus their efforts on union workers.
The UAW Retiree Medical Benefits Trust announced that it has net assets of $58.8 billion and total benefit obligations of $79 billion--putting it $20.2 billion in the hole. Trust officials anticipate that will result in higher costs for UAW retirees. I smell another Obama bailout!
Earlier this week I joked that about an Occupy Best Buy movement about people camping out for Black Friday deals. Apparently the idea to occupy stores during black friday has hit the OWS movement.
This is just further proof that no one needs to combat the OWS movement. They are their own worst enemy.
The REAL 99% have scheduled a protest for November 25th, 2011 and we invite other like-minded individuals to attend..
On Black Friday, watch for real Americans to be camped outside of retail outlets for the
Occupy Wal-Mart protest.
When those Americans who produce, who work for a living, who cannot take time off of work to spend unwashed weeks in a public park sucking of the teat of Mommy Gubberment, will gather together in order to throw their money at huge corporations just to buy a big-screen TV, Nintendo, I-pod, etc for themselves and their loved-ones.
"Told you so" just doesn't seem enough. Like I said before, S&P said not one damn thing about the Debt Ceiling. http://swampbubbles.com/20110801/dow-jones-drops-and-standard-poors-drop...

My favorite radio host(sorry Fred) Mike Church interviewing Rep. Ron Paul this past weekend. This is one of the only people you will ever see give congressman Paul a fair interview instead of treating him like some old nutjob. Very insightful Q&A.
