    Boeing Co (BA.N) handily defeated a union drive by workers at the company's aircraft factory in South Carolina on Wednesday, as almost three-quarters of workers at the plant who voted rejected union representation. The secret ballot vote, conducted by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) at polling locations throughout the North Charleston plant, was the first for Boeing and a high-profile test for organized labor in the nation's most strongly anti-union state. The NLRB said 74 percent of the 2,828 workers who cast ballots voted against joining the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM).

    JFK speech ^ | 8/13/62 | JFK
    The last two major income tax rate reductions were in the 1960s and 1980s. Here are the results of those cuts and their effect on revenue collection. Federal revenue in 1960 = $92.5 Federal revenue in 1968 = $153.0 Over a 50% increase in revenue! Federal revenue in 1980 = $517.5 Federal revenue in 1989 = $909.0 Over a 70% increase in revenue! So the FACTS show that cutting taxes in the 60's and 80's increased federal tax revenue. Now you know the truth.

    Data from the last seismic survey done in the ANWR in the early 1980s suggest the region potentially contains some ten billion barrels of recoverable oil, says Houseknecht—enough to meet U.S. demand for about a year and a half. But the uncertainty is large. In 2002, estimates of the recoverable oil in the vast National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska (NPRA), to the west of Prudhoe Bay, were also more than ten billion barrels. That estimate fell by 90 percent in 2010 after exploratory wells found mostly gas. What Obama's Drilling Bans Mean for Alaska and the Arctic

    It makes perfect economic sense to euthanize retarded children. It makes perfect economic sense to sell your beautiful 13 year old daughter into slavery if you live in poverty. It makes perfect economic sense not to treat anyone over 70 for cancer if they can't afford to pay for it. It makes perfect economic sense for a young women with no job, no way to support herself to have an abortion. It makes perfect economic sense for powerful nations to invade and occupy lesser nations and to seize their natural resources enslaving them in their empire. It makes perfect economic...
  • ]flashback] Obama Announces 54.5 mpg CAFE Standard by 2025

    Popular Mechanics ^ | 7/29/11 | A. Del Colle
    At a ceremony today in Washington, D.C., President Obama announced that the new CAFE standards for vehicle fleets will be 54.5 mpg by 2025. The increase piggybacks Obama's 2009 mandate for a CAFE average of 35.5 by 2016 and is the largest mandatory fuel economy increase in history. The standard is just shy of the 56.2 mpg average that the Obama administration was considering just a month ago (though not nearly as ambitious as the 62 mpg target the government floated at one time).

    Step aside, elected Members of Congress. If you can’t pass cap and trade legislation, The Environmental Protection Agency will move in with massively complex and costly regulations that would micromanage just about every aspect of the economy. They announced today that carbon dioxide and five other greenhouse gases (GHGs) threaten public health and the environment. Since 85 percent of the U.S. economy runs on fossil fuels that emit carbon dioxide, imposing a cost on CO2 is equivalent to placing an economy-wide tax on energy use. The kind of industrial-strength EPA red tape that the agency could enforce in the name...

    Since the passage of NAFTA, the American economy, which was already stagnating, has gone downhill at an increasing clip. When we examine the details of the “free trade” agreement, it is easy to see why it has caused so much devastation.

    “Free trade” means uncontrolled, unrestricted access to our economy for foreign-made goods, tariff- and duty-free. These goods are made at wages of $4 per hour or less. We cannot compete with these wages, so we are forced to outsource nearly all of our manufacturing, sell-out to foreign interests, or simply go bankrupt.

    Economy In Crisis ^ | August 31, 2016 | George Barlow
    America must stop thinking that protecting our economy is a bad thing. Protectionism, through appropriate and applicable tariffs could save our jobs, homes and economy. But, as long as we keep apologizing for doing what we must, we will not be able to rejuvenate our economy. We will keep begging for whatever jobs foreigners are willing to throw at us. Is this what we want to be – a nation of beggars? We need to be a proud nation, a strong nation once again and re-instate needed tariffs to protect and rebuild our economy.
