    "Superficial" "A source close to the Senate negotiations [says] that two senators who voted against the background check bill would vote for it after minor, superficial changes." - Lawrence O’Donnell on MSNBC, May 6, 2013ACTION: Senators who voted pro-gun last month are under intense pressure - by Senate Democrats and Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s hit ads - to switch their votes.  We need to keep applying the heat and let them know that gun owners are ready to help in any Senate campaign, no matter which state, to defeat ANY SENATOR who votes for gun control.LEGISLATIVE UPDATE FROM WASHINGTON, DC.

    Pilgrim's Pride Corp., the nation's largest chicken producer, which has plants in northeast Georgia, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Monday, a move some analysts had predicted given the company's sagging debt load and volatile feed prices. The Pittsburg, Texas-based company sought the bankruptcy protection in a filing with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas on Monday, saying that as of Sept. 27 it had $3.75 billion in assets and $2.72 billion in debts. Company spokesman Ray Atkinson said Pilgrim's Pride was reorganizing and not liquidating its assets, and the company will keep operating throughout...

    Well I braved the cold and rain and packed my husband and daughter (in her crown and sash) and went to the Gwinnett Arena in Atlanta. We got there about two hours ahead and we got there before the crowds were starting to form. It was chilly and wet outside, so they started letting people in to the building early. While most made a bee-line for the front of the stage, we instead scoped out the staging and chose to park ourselves near what looked to be a staging area. (Good thing I have a background in stage management ...

    It is a must that Saxby pulls it out tommorrow. If the Democrats get to 59 with a there is a decent chance they will just install Al Franken as Senator and know their is nothing that anyone can do to stop them for 2 years. It is important if you don't live there to call everyone you know there. Or if you can influence other people who have friends or family there ask them if they can do the same, turnout is critical in this race.

    Atlanta, GA -- The 2008 elections aren't complete as voters in Georgia will go to the polls on December 2 in a runoff election to determine whether pro-life Sen. Saxby Chambliss will go back to Washington. One pro-life group is urging voters to support Chambliss because his opponent, Jim Martin, is strongly pro-abortion.
  • There's no 'free choice' in Employee Free Choice Act (Obama Union Payback Act of 2009)

    11/25/2008 2:35:05 AM PST · by Fred · 8 replies · 1,147+ views
    Regarding Dr. John David's commentary, "Make it Easier to Unionize Workplace": Labor unions certainly have their place in a contemporary American economy, but not at the expense of employee free choice and economic security. Indeed, the Employee Free Choice Act would severely erode the freedom enjoyed by employees for nearly 75 years to make a private, fully-informed decision about whether or not they want a union to represent them. Too often, the losing party in a union election - the company or the union - blames its loss on the opposing party's "coercive and underhanded" tactics. In reality though, the...

The Big Three currently pay 85% of union benefits to UAW members ... who aren't even working. Yep. Remember how I told you about the Job Banks for union workers? If a union worker is employed at a plant that closes, the auto makers still pay 85% of their union benefits. Rick Wagoner, CEO of General Motors, says that his company must reduce operating costs ... but his...

    You just sit and you worry, said Pat Weber, a construction administrator in Fennville who was laid off more than a year ago. In the last year, Ive put in for more than 100 jobs. I stopped counting after 110. Its just so defeating. All around Fennville and its neighbors here in southwest Michigan, front lawns are peppered with for-sale signs and merchants complain about slow days. But while this remains a beautiful place with none of the obvious blight of Detroit on the other side of the state, residents say the hardship beneath the surface is very real. It...

Congressman Tim Ryan. ... Then when Honda and Toyota responded by importing more cars from abroad, we could have import quotas!

    A historic Senate runoff in Georgia is shaping up as a political battle royal that could hand complete control of Congress to President-elect Barack Obama and the Democratic Party. The Dec. 2 special election comes on the heels of the Nov. 4 election in which incumbent Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss outpolled liberal Democratic challenger Jim Martin. But Chambliss fell just short of the 50-percent margin that Georgia law requires.

    The polling organization says incumbent Republican Saxby Chambliss leads Democratic nominee Jim Martin 48-43. It also says if Libertarian nominee Allen Buckleys support remains consistent, a runoff is likely. Says Rasmussen: Senator Saxby Chambliss leads Democratic challenger Jim Martin by five percentage points in his bid for re-election in Georgia. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of the race finds the Republican incumbent with 48% of the vote and Martin with 43%. Libertarian Party candidate Allen Buckley picks ups seven percent (7%) of the vote while two percent (2%) remain undecided. But, under Georgia law, a candidate must win at...

    ATLANTA (MyFOX ATLANTA) The Georgia Senate race could have major implications on the national political scene. A recent Rasmussen Reports poll shows incumbent Republican Senator Saxby Chambliss with 47 percent, just a two point lead over Democratic challenger Jim Martin who sits at 45 percent. Libertarian candidate Allen Buckley has one percent of the vote according to the poll. The outcome in Georgia could play a big part in determining whether the Democrats are able to win a 60 vote majority in the Senate. A majority of that size would be able to overcome Republican efforts to block legislation...
