    “Organized labor” brings to mind railroads, factories, and government offices, but the labor movement’s biggest recent gains have been in the home. Led by SEIU, unions and their political allies have pushed through executive orders and legislation in a dozen states to “organize” home-care workers, such as personal assistants and sitters, by deeming them state employees for collective-bargaining purposes alone. California was the trailblazer in this campaign, with SEIU first trying to convince the state courts to designate Los Angeles County home-care workers as county employees. Having lost the battle in the courtroom, SEIU commenced lobbying the California legislature to...

    Obama’s State Department is giving away seven strategic, resource-laden Alaskan islands to the Russians. Yes, to the Putin regime in the Kremlin. … The seven endangered islands in the Arctic Ocean and Bering Sea include one the size of Rhode Island and Delaware combined. The Russians are also to get the tens of thousands of square miles of oil-rich seabeds surrounding the islands. The Department of Interior estimates billions of barrels of oil are at stake. The State Department has undertaken the giveaway in the guise of a maritime boundary agreement between Alaska and Siberia. Astoundingly, our federal government itself...
  • Thomas More Law Center Appeals Ninth Circuit's Anti-God Decision to the U.S. Supreme Court

    02/24/2012 12:54:56 PM PST · by Thomas More Law Center · 1 replies
    ANN ARBOR, MI – The Thomas More Law Center announced that it has appealed a controversial decision of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to the U.S. Supreme Court. The appeal was filed in the case of Bradley Johnson v. Poway Unified School District late last week. For the past twenty-five years, Bradley Johnson, a high school math teacher at the Poway School District located in California had been displaying red, white and blue banners in his classroom that contained patriotic phrases such as: “In God We Trust,” “One Nation Under God,” and “God Bless America.” He displayed the banners...

    A funny thing. Now the biggest anti-americans from the western world are actually from america. The video I linked is perhaps the strongest anti-americanism from Europe. Doesn't hold the candle to the hate from inside.
  • Were the President’s Recess Appointments Constitutional?

    American Enterprise Institute ^ | 02/23/2012 | Staff
    Tuesday at AEI, four distinguished lawyers aggressively debated the constitutionality of the president’s recent "recess" appointments during the Senate's 2011-2012 pro forma sessions. First, Morton Rosenberg asserted that the president was explicitly violating the Constitution by making recess appointments when the Senate was in pro forma sessions, thereby avoiding recess by its own constitutional authority to develop its own rules. Douglas Kmiec countered that the Senate's creation of pro forma sessions simply to inhibit the executive branch violated the honest interface that the framers intended between the branches of government. David Rivkin Jr. concurred with Rosenberg's conclusion about the unconstitutionality...

    Caterpillar: Goodbye Illinois, Hello Indiana’s Right To Work February 17, 2012 Caterpillar digging into Indiana Caterpillar has been a mainstay Illinois-based company for generations but no longer. The power and influence of big labor has impacted the company for too long, damaging its bottom-line and hurting workers. Now that Illinois’ neighbor, Indiana, has become a Right to Work state, Caterpillar is exploring their options, according to The Detroit News’ Robert Laurie: Back in 2009, Barack Obama announced that Caterpillar had promised to rehire some of its laid-off workforce if his stimulus proposal passed. This week, the nation’s largest manufacturer of...

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | 01/06/2012 | David B. Rivkin, Jr. and Lee A. Casey
    Mr. Obama is claiming an open-ended authority to determine that the Senate is in recess, despite that body's own judgment and the factual realities. That is an astonishing and, so far as we can tell, unprecedented power grab. It is not up to the president to decide whether the Senate is organized properly or working hard enough. However much the supposedly power-hungry President George W. Bush may have resented the Senate's practice of staying "in session" to defeat his recess-appointment power, he nevertheless respected the Senate's judgment on the point. The president has done his new appointees and the public...

    Remember those cartoons with the feisty Confederate snarling, “Lee surrendered. I didn’t.” Well, Dixie has risen, but it seems more “If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.” Southern Hospitality now welcomes corporations as it once did travelers. There is little respite from the national economic doldrums Americans endure due to debased dollars, tax and regulatory uncertainty plus a popular culture increasingly resentful of success. But internal shifts signal that the South beats the North in more than just SEC football dominance. The South long disdained Yankee capitalism, but now in many respects she exhibits freer markets than her historic rival....

  • Freep This Poll - Do you agree with the judge's decision in the flag T-shirt lawsuit?

    Please take a moment to vote in the following poll: "Do you agree with the judge who ruled in favor of the school district in the case in which two administrators sent four students home for wearing American-themed clothing in Cinco de Mayo?" This stems from a 2009 incident where 5 boys in our community wore US flag shirts to school on Cinco de Mayo, and were sent home by the principal and VP for doing so. Students wearing the colors of the Mexican flag were allowed to remain in school. The following day, about 200 hispanic kids marched out...

    As an eighteen year old infantryman who knew everything, our unit was once assigned to the S-4 Logistics shop for a “working party.” A welcome sign admonished, “Amateurs talk strategy. Professionals talk logistics.” We snickered, handled the office “pogues’” heavy lifting and left. “Every marine is a rifleman,” and Napoleon affirmed, “An army marches on its stomach,” but surely it was the “grunts” who won wars. Friday, 11/11/11, America will honor her veterans, particularly those who paid the supreme price protecting our cherished principles. We should solemnly reflect on this, holding those most heavily engaged in the highest esteem. Tales...
  • What to do with Romney?

    Hi everyone-- I'm a longtime lurker of FR and just signed up to get your feedback about a question I am sure many of us are asking ourselves. As a lifelong conservative, I am concerned about the possibility (probability?) of Mitt Romney receiving the GOP nomination for president next year. Many of my friends are convinced Romney will win the nomination, but I am very concerned that if he were to get into office, he would not stand up for the conservative policies we desperately need after the past four years. I want Obama out of office more than anything,...

    Albany Journal ^ | October 25, 2011 | Colin P. Flaherty
    Not to worry: The recent beating of a white football coach by 30 black people in Georgia was not a race riot. The Associated Press called it an “ambush.” A local TV station said a “fight broke out:” Maybe the coach attacked the mob, instead of the other way around. Whatever. The attack left the coach with several broken bones in his face. We know it was not a race riot because we would have read about that in the newspapers.

    We trust our newspapers, who have a profit interest in reporting things we like to read, to interpret that interest as a mandate for telling the truth as they see it. However, as we find out with each generation, newspapers often filter “truth” through two sieves to withdraw upsetting information: first, what is politically de rigeur at the time, and second, what their advertisers and vocal interest groups want to hear.
