The NLRB attack on McDonald´s
Chicago Tribune, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 8/5/2014 9:06:29 AM

Amid the economic doldrums of recent times, the fast-food industry has been one of the biggest job creators. So far this year, it has added employment at a 4 percent rate, which stands to make this the third straight year at that pace. If only the entire economy had done so well. But no good deed goes unpunished. Last week, the National Labor Relations Board decided that McDonald´s will have to play by a brand-new set of rules — and if that decision stands, it could affect a lot of other businesses in fast-food and other sectors. It´s a mistake that

Courts are likely to invalidate the NLRB decision, as there is no legal basis for it.

So long as the NLRB operates outside of the law, all of it´s "rulings" are null and void.

Another totally useless and dangerous agency heard from!

How much better would our economy be if the following agencies were eliminated: NLRB, OSHA, EPA, BATFE, IRS, DOE, and DOT??

None of them actually add anything to the country, all they do is interfere.

Side bar issue....I saw real time, real world, how the union model worked when in college, I worked for a grocery store in California named Alpha-Beta.

Sure, they paid a few dollars more than minimum wage--that was the draw. But every week you fought and wished and hoped for more hours. The hours you got were often arbitrary. I could not understand why we had so many people working there; even though I was part time, I was available for up to 30 hours per week (I worked the night shift) and sometimes I would only get 13. I had to take a second job delivering auto parts to make enough money.

Then I realized, they hired as many people as they could so that there would be more union dues paid. What a scam.

In addition, no matter HOW hard you worked, the promotions to cashier or clerk came in the absolute order of your hiring. I had the best work record, was the fastest and most flexible--the words of the clerks I supported not mine--yet still, everyone hired before me, even a few weeks before me, was promoted. I left when I was pulled into the computer industry and made a real career.

That´s how union shops work. It´s about the unions and the dues. And that is why in so many stores that are union you get the slacker kind of people that get their positions through attrition and not skills. And these costs are directly passed onto the consumer.

Bottom line, there is something sick about unions. It´s all about artificially setting wages and has the undercurrent of blackmail. Expect technology, once again, to be put into play and many jobs lost forever.

If you put the headline into the google search engine you´ll find a readable version, no subscription needed.

This is an assault on the franchise model McDonalds and many other companies use. If the host company can be sued for the actions of a franchisee small business growth will come to a stand still. This is a very dangerous over reach. Small business owners will lose everything the first time a union negotiated contract is forced on them by their host company.

There are many problems with McDonald´s.
1) They make money.
2) They are not state controlled.
3) They provide jobs.
4) They provide their own job training, and do not depend on government schools.
5) They are franchisees, making them independent of national unions and national EEOC and EPA rules.
So of course they are enemies.
They are not collectivized.
This must change.
All must serve the Sovereign State: One State, One Lord.
The NLRB is illegal. Did anyone tell them?

Alaska Senate Dem Under Fire
for Obamacare Rate Hikes
National Review, by Joel Gehrke    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 9/18/2014 9:53:38 AM     Post Reply
With insurance rates set to spike in Alaska, a new ad faults Senator Mark Begich, one of the most vulnerable Democrats in the country, for supporting Obamacare and missing votes. “When Mark Begich promised Obamacare would reduce costs, we believed him,” the narrator says. “Now, some Alaskans could see their rates increase by thousands of dollars each year.” The ad, released by the Koch-backed Freedom Partners Action Fund cites a recent report on Obamacare rate hikes from Alaska Public Media. “The [Alaska] Division of Insurance says consumers can expect to pay an increase of more than 30 percent on average for coverage,” the

Scottish referendum: Alone, Scotland

No good deed goes unpunished. In granting residents of Scotland a referendum on their country’s political future, David Cameron surely thought he was doing a good deed. The Scottish National Party would have to put up or shut up. A Yes vote would be a victory for them. A No vote would be a victory for the Scottish Labour Party bigwigs to whom Mr Cameron entrusted the campaign against independence, in the belief that he – despite being the son of a Scotsman – was less qualified than they to make the case for the Union. If Mr Cameron gave a

‘I’m not Barack Obama’ is
Democrats’ election mantra

This year, far more than the last midterm elections, Democratic candidates across the country are fleeing the incumbent president. Midterms almost always go against the party in the White House, as they did (horribly) in 2010. But that year, Democrats running for Congress mostly stuck with President Obama on the newly passed Affordable Care Act. Not so this time. They are running for the hills. And while in campaigns past candidates have quietly distanced themselves from incumbent presidents (no joint appearances and no mentions in campaign ads), in 2014, some Democrats are brazenly making their marital discord known. The most hilarious example is

Vice President Joe Biden, who in our kingless nation has been sent to play the role of Britain’s Prince Philip, condemned unscrupulous bankers earlier this week and, in doing so, caused something of a flap. While eulogizing his son Beau, Biden spun into a roving digression, lamenting that the United States was being torn asunder by a class of unscrupulous and avaricious bankers — dastardly men who spend their days tricking the public to take “bad loans,” taking advantage of the ignorant and the needy, and foreclosing the homes of military heroes while they serve overseas.

Obama´s ´Year of Action´
Becomes a Year of Fear
National Journal, by James Oliphant    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 9/18/2014 9:03:24 AM     Post Reply
Americans are afraid. The White House is afraid. Democrats are afraid. President Obama´s "Year of Action" has turned into a Year of Fear. The country seems mired in dread. And that could have mortal consequences for midterm Democrats. New polls out this week betray a rattled public, one that is jittery about war, security, and the economy—and one that is increasingly looking to the GOP, not the party in power. Even as the White House has sought to reassure Americans that the campaign in Iraq will be limited, that the president isn´t going to act alone on immigration in the near future,

Bush’s real grit
Chicago Sun- Times, by Steve Huntley    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 9/18/2014 8:56:48 AM     Post Reply
For years the conventional wisdom held that President Barack Obama has continued the national security policies of George W. Bush: drone strikes, secret surveillance measures and indefinite detention of terrorists. Now, say some commentators, Obama’s war rhetoric is even sounding like Bush’s. Obama advocates preemptive war to prevent attacks on America by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, though the current thinking is that ISIS poses no imminent threat to the United States. Obama’s declaration that “if you threaten America you will find no safe haven” resonates with Bush’s assertion that “you’re either with us or against us.”

Scots Must Vote Nae

GLASGOW — To most Americans, Scotland means golf, whisky and — if they go there — steady drizzle. Even to the millions of Americans whose surnames testify to their Scottish or Scotch-Irish ancestry, the idea that Scotland might be about to become an independent country is baffling. Yet, this week, a referendum could decide just that. With days remaining before the Scottish electorate votes on whether or not to remain in the United Kingdom, the result is too close to call. Born in Glasgow, but having spent most of my life in England and America, I am rather baffled, too.

Health Care Law Is Obama´s Gift
to Republicans for 2016
Creators Syndicate, by Scott Rasmussen    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 9/16/2014 8:41:46 AM     Post Reply
President Obama’s health care law is the gift that keeps on giving to the GOP. In 2010, of course, passage of the law powered the Republican gains of 62 seats in the House of Representatives and pickups of more than 700 state legislative seats across the nation. The law didn’t go into effect in time to hurt the president’s re-election bid in 2012, but it is making life extremely difficult for the president’s party in 2014. Cautious beltway pundit Stuart Rothenberg recently announced that he is “expecting a sizable Republican Senate wave” this year. He believes the GOP will pick up at

Through waves of European revolutions, grand reform movements, the building and dismantling of history’s greatest global empire, two world wars and the establishment of one of the world’s leading welfare states, the United Kingdom has enjoyed remarkable political stability, always evolving to meet challenges but simultaneously holding to the ancient constitutional structures and traditions that have united and protected its people in an uncommonly successful multi-ethnic state. That has been good for Great Britain and good for the world. Now, the country’s future is in question, as Scotland prepares to vote Thursday on whether to secede. Polls show a closely

If past presidents are remembered for their signature achievements, Obama will be remembered for his signature lie: “If you like your health care plan blah, blah, blah.” The reader knows the rest. Although the most consequential of Obama’s lies — it got him reelected — it’s far from his only prevarication. I’ve counted 75 significant lies since his campaign for president began, but that doesn’t begin to tally the casual fibs and hyperbole he spouts seemingly every day. Here are five that illustrate just how much Obama’s presidency is built on falsehoods. 5. “My father left my family when I was 2

Democrats have a lot to worry about in the midterm elections but one of their sturdiest bulwarks against a GOP rout in the fall has been support among women. They have held significant leads over Republicans among women by a number of polling measures. But the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News Poll has some warning signs for Democrats who are counting on women to help them weather a tough political climate. An important bellwether is the question of which party voters would prefer to control Congress, and it has long been the case that men prefer a Republican Congress and women favor

“Now let’s make two things clear,” Barack Obama told the world on Wednesday, adopting a brisk schoolmaster’s tone. First, ISIS, the self-professed “Islamic state” that has taken over large parts of Syria and Iraq, is not actually Islamic. Why would he say that? Because, as Obama explained, “No religion condones the killing of innocents.”Since Obama is neither a Muslim nor a scholar, that judgement is above his pay grade, as he would put it. As Bernard Lewis, a great authority on Islam, puts it: “It is surely presumptuous for those who are not Muslims to say what is orthodox and

A village of just 1,000 residents in Switzerland has been forced to raise taxes because an African refugee and her seven children cost the local authority £40,000 in benefits every month. Hagenbuch, in the Swiss canton of Zurich, is understood to be spending close to a third of its total annual budget on the family after they arrived from Eritrea in East Africa three years ago.
