Three Labor Unions, Including
Teamsters, Want ObamaCare Repealed;
When Will Media Report?

As the media, by and large, ignores the train wreck that is on the horizon with ObamaCare, yet another union has jumped ship on the president’s health care overhaul. Back in April, you may recall, the United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers, and Allied Workers officially said thanks but no thanks to the president’s plan. Well, now, a major labor union in the grocery industry is balking at the policy. According to The Hill: The United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW) — a 1.3 million-member labor group that twice endorsed Obama for president —

They never will. The AP may have been abused by the DOJ but they will never change.

I have trouble understanding why newspapers like the WaPo, NY Slimes, LA Slimes, etc. are willing to risk going out of business rather than telling the truth. I suppose they expect some kind of reward or special privilege, but they should remember JFK´s inaugural speech quote, "those who ride on the back of the tiger end up inside."

I´m to the point where I hope these unions are just crushed by Obamacare. We know the union thug leadership won´t suffer, they´ll pass it on to the members. Until people can´t afford their text minutes and Netflix nothing in this country is going to change. The LoVos won´t get a clue until they wake up one morning and can´t buy their lattes.

The media got their marching orders yesterday after they were all called for a private meeting in the WH. They probably got offered free taxpayer money for their failing newspapers as a means to shut them up.

Excellent idea #7. Unfortunately the Dems are famous for passing themselves exemptions to most rules, laws, and regulations. Our Mute Speaker of the House will likely build a coalition and consensus in the House of Rinos and Libs. It´s no wonder the Libs still hate Newt. After he took over Congress, he made everyone follow the laws they voted. While many remember the House Bank Scandal, few know that Newt canceled the daily fresh ice delivered to all 500+ members. It was a holdover from the days before refrigeration, when each member needed to cool their gin or scotch (in certain members, both).

The MSM reminds me of a battered woman who goes through the cycle of abuse time after time. They let the perpetrator beat them up, but they always go back and lick the boots of the perpetrator as if the latter has overcome their abusive tendencies.

Nope. Never. He will cotninue to lick their boots.

The unions had some of the best coverage available all paid for by their employers. The unions got waivers to retain the existing plans until 2014. But now the companies have the ability to terminate the benefits and dump the union members onto the public exchanges. There the members will pay a far larger premium, share of services, and deductible. And if they retain some elements of the previous sweetheart deals, they will be taxed on the full value of the benefit.

Of course the unions want ObamaCare repealed.

Looking back at history, haven´t the unions supported the most evil men to come down the pike? You know the ones who had millions exterminated. Today they are supporters of the Occupy movement. Obviously, they aren´t the kind of people who think things through. They supported Obamacare and now support the immigration bill which are disasters for the working man. They are chumps used by this administration to advance an agenda that will do nothing but harm them. Union management is filled with greedy thugs who will do anything to line their pockets while continuing to enjoy their perks at the expense of those whom they claim to help. They have to keep their members ignorant and fired up all the time. That is why they gravitate to the democrat party. It is the same mindset.

People live and die by the union. It´s the reps we need to expose. The average joe just looks at someone like me and says the union woulda protected ya. They are right. Hard to argue with that. But fat cat union bosses are better prey for getting union attention.

The unions may have helped get obozocare passed, but they were not invited to help write the rules and regulations. As such, this the when they get it shoved to them. They have forgotten that the that the long term objective is to have government controlled socialized healthcare. As such, the rules and regs are written to destroy healthcare as we know it.

And I don´t have any sympathy for the unions.

If the obama administration runs true to form, their first demand will be that these unions get free obamacare, at the expense of the working non-union taxpayer. This will result in the biggest revolt this country has ever seen. I predict 70% of the illegal, unconstitutional IRS forms required by obamacare will not be filled out or mailed in. There will be major dissent and disrespect for a government that deserves nothing but in 2014. Then it will turn bloody.

David Brat, the long-shot challenger to Congressman Eric Cantor (R-VA) in Virginia´s 7th Congressional District, is demanding an investigation into the new executive director of the Virginia Republican party, Shaun Kenney, after it was revealed Kenney´s consulting firm is now on Cantor´s payroll. "If Eric Cantor´s campaign or any of his affiliates has hired Shaun Kenney’s consulting firm, any pretense of fairness in the upcoming Seventh District Congressional Race is diminished," Brat wrote in a letter to Pat Mullins, chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia (RPVA).

The White House has announced that John Podesta, President Obama’s current Counselor, will lead his delegation to the Holy See for the Mass of canonization of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II on April 27, 2014. Podesta will head the delegation which will also include Rep.

National security should serve policy objectives. It should not be a victim of political correctness. Politics should be kept especially far away from the practice of intelligence. Today´s decision by the NYPD to close the unit that was mapping Muslim communities in New York is very likely a product of political pressure. It is a decision that will make the city targeted in the largest terrorist attack in modern history less safe. I have gone on record in the past—on Al Jazeera, of all places—to explain why the program was a good idea and crucial to preventing terrorist plots in the future. In

Michael R. Bloomberg, making his first major political investment since leaving office, plans to spend $50 million this year building a nationwide grass-roots network to motivate voters who feel strongly about curbing gun violence, an organization he hopes can eventually outmuscle the National Rifle Association. Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, said gun control advocates need to learn from the N.R.A. and punish those politicians who fail to support their agenda — even Democrats whose positions otherwise align with his own. “They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you,’ ” he said of the N.R.A.

Kristine Kirk, 44, called for help around 9:30p.m. Monday, telling dispatchers that her husband Richard Kirk, 47, was ´talking about the end of the world´ and ´scarring´ their three children. A source told FOX31 investigators are looking at whether he had eaten a marijuana cookie.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
