Bought & Paid For, Part II

Bought & Paid For, Part II

National and local unions have taken over the Minnesota legislature. The elections of 2012 saw an unprecedented $100 million dollars spent by large employee unions throughout the United States. More than $11 million of that money was spent in Minnesota. Bought and Paid For… Minnesota Legislature lists some of the powerful democrats who are pushing […]

Here We Go Again: A Discussion with Numbers USA's Rosemary Jenks

Here We Go Again: A Discussion with Numbers USA’s Rosemary Jenks

With the “Gang of Eight” announcing their immigration reform package yesterday, I’m sure many American found the deal sensible, rational, and fair.  It’s a bipartisan deal, which pleases the independent segments of the electorate, and has Sen. Marco Rubio endorsing it wholeheartedly.  Immigration keeps the United States economically vibrant, unlike Europe, which has become older, […]

Do Union Organizers Want Us to Dislike Them?

Do Union Organizers Want Us to Dislike Them?

Though most of the news coverage in Michigan this week has been tepid, showing calm crowds protesting quietly, a few intrepid journalists entered the protest area and filmed a far more violent and angry mob. (Even Huffington Post had to admit things got more than a little out of hand when Conservative Steven Crowder was […]

Jim DeMint - Change in Washington Can Only Come From the Outside

Jim DeMint – Change in Washington Can Only Come From the Outside

Great conservatives like Marco Rubio, Mike Lee and Rand Paul can only be topped with a Senate majority. If so, it won’t be with Senator DeMint as he moves to the Heritage Foundation. The true fight in engaging Washington and politics in general is from the outside. …you cannot change Washington from the inside. You […]

Toys, Tech and Twinkies: When unions go awry

Toys, Tech and Twinkies: When unions go awry

A lack of inexpensive toys, electronics and dessert food may be the cost of union member’s demands that they get more of everything while the rest of middle-to-low income America is earning less.

Obama’s bad tryst with coal is going to hurt him

Obama’s bad tryst with coal is going to hurt him

We all know about the Obama administration’s ‘War on Coal.’  It’s an egregious regulatory onslaught against American enterprise.  However, it’s a story that’s often buried by some in the media.  Last month, I wrote about how The Washington Post pushed another event in Obama’s war on coal to page 16 of their September 19 edition.  It was […]

Who Should Get Credit for “Saving” the Auto Industry?

First, before I start, I need to get this out there: I was/am firmly against the auto industry “bailouts.” I don’t care who did it; I do not believe the government should have rewarded poor business decisions. It’s quite simple in my book. If you make good business decisions, you survive. If you don’t, you […]

Klobuchar is “Minnesota Nice” …in name only!

Should a sitting senator be praising a 9/11 truther? Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) is often billed as the “Minnesota-nice” senator who makes great hot dish. She is soft spoken and is quick to flash an unassuming smile. It’s a great cover for a woman who pals around with communist revolutionaries, George Soros lackeys and union […]

First Strike in 25 years.

First Strike in 25 years.

Late into Sunday and early Monday morning parents were still wondering whether or not their children would be attending a normal day of school. However, this was not the case this morning. On any normal Monday morning, parents would be dropping their children off at school, and starting their day of work or household activities. […]

The company you keep...

The company you keep…

At a Labor Day weekend barbecue in Minneapolis, Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN) hosted some big talent to speak to a crowd of about 50-75 that consisted mostly of union members, public employees and campaign staffers and volunteers. The keynote speaker was self-described communist revolutionary, former Green Jobs Czar for President Obama and “9/11 truther” Anthony […]

“Romney Hood”? Obama Campaign Showing Signs of Idiocy

“Romney Hood”? Obama Campaign Showing Signs of Idiocy

I find the recent Obama re-election campaign tactic of referring to Mitt Romney as “Romney Hood” rather interesting.  Obama and his cronies are actually complimenting Romney, seemingly without being smart enough to realize it.  If idiocy isn’t the case they are counting on We the People being too stupid to know our fables.  I am […]

Wisconsin: Tea Party Beats Unions

Wisconsin: Tea Party Beats Unions

The Tea Party sparked Conservative wave that swept most of the United States in 2010 was a contributing factor in many races, including the elections of Scott Walker, Rebecca Kleefisch and a Republican legislative majority in Wisconsin. Governor Walker and his fiscally Conservative allies in the State House set about enacting the reforms they promised […]

The Wisconsin Recall: Foreshadowing the 2012 Presidential Race

The Wisconsin Recall: Foreshadowing the 2012 Presidential Race

Today’s recall vote of Wisconsin governor Scott Walker has been touted as a crucial measure of the upcoming presidential election by both liberals and conservatives. Liberals say Walker’s defeat is a victory over the so-called fascistic measures Walker took to strip state workers of their apparently unalienable collective bargaining rights. As a growing number of […]

US 41 Corridor Could be the Key to Wisconsin Election

US 41 Corridor Could be the Key to Wisconsin Election

As folks head to the polls today, it could be the evenly split voters in Fox Valley who make the difference. In an article in the Appleton PostCressent, Lawrence University political scientist Arnold Shober said, “Barrett will do wonderfully in Dane County, just like Walker will carry Waukesha and Washington County, but up here in […]

Gov. Scott Walker Will Survive

Gov. Scott Walker Will Survive

On June 5th, the battle will be over.  Will citizens of the Badger State vote to keep their ongoing prosperity or revert back to the old policies that drained the state of economic vigor?  Currently, the massive multi-billion dollar budget deficit has been balanced, unemployment is down, and property taxes have decreased for the first […]
