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?

Eric Holder’s Legacy: Duplicity,
Incompetence, and Obliviousness
Time, by Nick Gillespie    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 9/26/2014 9:55:27 AM     Post Reply
So Eric Holder is stepping down as attorney general of the United States, reportedly just as soon as a successor is named and confirmed.(Snip) From A. Mitchell Palmer (who rounded up and deported real and imagined Communists) to John Mitchell (convicted on perjury charges related to Watergate) to Janet Reno (who ordered the disastrous assault on the Branch Davidians and spent years threatening to censor cable TV), the position has long been a holding tank for low-performing miscreants. Early on his tenure, Holder told Congress that federal agents wouldn’t raid and arrest proprietors of medical marijuana dispensaries that were complying

The Secret Goldman Sachs Tapes

(Corrects number of hours taped in fourth paragraph.) Probably most people would agree that the people paid by the U.S. government to regulate Wall Street have had their difficulties. Most people would probably also agree on two reasons those difficulties seem only to be growing: an ever-more complex financial system that regulators must have explained to them by the financiers who create it, and the ever-more common practice among regulators of leaving their government jobs for much higher paying jobs at the very banks they were once meant to regulate. Wall Street´s regulators are people who are paid by Wall Street

Eric Holder´s business legacy:
´Too big to jail’?
Fortune, by Roger Parloff    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 9/26/2014 9:45:37 AM     Post Reply
“That area of his record is terrible,” says Robert Weissman, president of the progressive nonprofit, Public Citizen. Weissman is criticizing U.S. attorney general Eric Holder for his “utter failure to prosecute any [major] institution or person for the events that led to the financial crisis and all the ensuing social devastation.” Holder announced yesterday that he’ll step down from the post he’s held since 2009 as soon as the president appoints a successor, The popular vein of criticism being voiced by Weissman, and encapsulated in the phrase “too big to jail,” is the albatross that threatens to weigh down Holder’s legacy in the

There has not been a liberal coalition in this country broad and deep enough to enact sweeping leftist legislation since 1937, when Congress passed the Fair Labor Standards Act, the last of the New Deal reforms. Beginning in 1938 the country began a 20-year shift to the right. And, contra the mainstream media, the Republican party’s position across the 50 states today is historically strong.(Snip)It seems that the the Democrats have been developing a third model of representation of late: Call it the “sneak it past the rubes” theory.

Congress should pass an authorization
for using force against the Islamic State
Washington Post, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 9/26/2014 9:25:26 AM     Post Reply
At the United Nations on Wednesday, President Obama offered a powerful case for war against the Islamic State. “This group has terrorized all who they come across in Iraq and Syria,” he said. “There can be no reasoning — no negotiation — with this brand of evil. The only language understood by killers like this is the language of force.” On moral grounds, Mr. Obama’s argument is irrefutable. Unfortunately, his legal justification for U.S. air attacks in Iraq and Syria is weaker. The administration submitted a letter to the United Nations saying that it was entitled to act under the

Eric Holder´s reign ends
with a whimper
USA Today, by Jonathan Turley    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 9/26/2014 9:19:24 AM     Post Reply
The resignation of Eric Holder as attorney general is an unavoidably symbolic moment for an administration that itself appears to be stumbling through the final years of a troubled second term. Holder truly personifies an administration of unrivaled ambitions colliding with inescapable realities. He proved a fierce friend to President Obama, and that loyalty might have worked to the disadvantage of both men. After a series of major court defeats and public controversies, Obama (like President Bush before him) might have been served better by an attorney general who was more detached from him and more attached to the constitutional principles

Staking the Senate on Kansas?

SHAWNEE, Kan. Tacked to the wall of Greg Orman’s campaign office is a print of a John Steuart Curry painting, “Tragic Prelude,” that hangs in the Capitol in Topeka. It depicts John Brown of Osawatomie, 39 miles south of here, as what he was, a deranged product of “Bleeding Kansas,” the Civil War’s overture. Today, Orman, who is as calm as Brown was crazed, is emblematic of fascinating Kansas.Orman wants to deny Pat Roberts a fourth Senate term, thereby ending a congressional career that began in 1981 with 16 years in the House. Orman, who favors term limits and pledges to

In U.N. speech, Nobel Peace Prize

Posted By: garnet- 9/25/2014 9:24:46 AM     Post Reply
This is how a Nobel Peace Prize laureate goes to war. He smiles warmly at the members of the U.N. General Assembly. He mentions his grandmother’s village in Kenya and notes that “Islam teaches peace.” He admits his country’s own flaws, praises “the path of diplomacy and peace,” and asserts that lasting gains cannot be “won at the barrel of a gun.”Also, he wades a good 19 minutes into his 40-minute speech (the official time limit is 15 minutes) before getting to the nub of the matter: “The terrorist group known as ISIL must be degraded and ultimately destroyed.”

Should We Hope to Die at 75?
National Review, by Victor Davis Hanson    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 9/25/2014 9:20:18 AM     Post Reply
Normally, no one would care that in a recent Atlantic essay — “Why I Hope to Die at 75” — 57-year-old Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel argued that living to be 75 years old was long enough for anyone. After 75, Emanuel suggests, “We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic.” But Emanuel is no garden-variety crackpot. Nor is he a wannabe science-fiction writer dreaming of a centrally planned planet of robust youthful humanoids. Unfortunately, he was one of the chief architects of the troubled Affordable Care Act and a key medical advisor to the Obama

Tuesday´s climate summit at the U.N. may well mark a turning point in the long-running talks as the reality sinks in that they are heading nowhere. For sure, the rhetoric is unchanged. Recently appointed U.N. peace messenger Leonardo DiCaprio is the show’s newest star, telling the meeting that it was "humankind’s greatest challenge." But the older acts sounded stale. Former Vice President Al Gore demonstrated his green credentials when he said that political will was "a renewable resource," recycling a line he’d first used at the 2007 Bali climate conference. For small countries, the U.N. climate change talks provide an opportunity

Why You Are Likely To Lose
Your Health Insurance -- No Matter
How Much You Like It

One of Barack Obama’s best-remembered promises was, “If you like your health insurance, you can keep it.” But at the very same time the president was making that promise, lawmakers on Capitol Hill were drafting legislation that would make sure that promise could never be kept. We call it Obamacare. Moreover, the problem is not only that millions of people were unable to keep the plan they had in 2010, when the health reform law was passed. They are not likely to be able to keep for long any plan they have selected this year on a health insurance exchange.

Targeting the Constitution

It is now well known that the IRS targeted tea party organizations. What is less well known, but perhaps even more scandalous, is that the IRS also targeted those who would educate their fellow citizens about the United States Constitution. According to the inspector general’s report (pp. 30 & 38), this particular IRS targeting commenced on Jan. 25, 2012 — the beginning of the election year for President Obama’s second campaign. On that date: “the BOLO [‘be on the lookout’] criteria were again updated.” The revised criteria included “political action type organizations involved in … educating on the Constitution and Bill

Eric Holder Jr., the nation´s first black U.S. attorney general, is preparing to announce his resignation Thursday after a tumultuous tenure marked by civil rights advances, national security threats, reforms to the criminal justice system and five and a half years of fights with Republicans in Congress. Two sources familiar with the decision tell NPR that Holder, 63, intends to leave the Justice Department as soon as his successor is confirmed, a process that could run through 2014 and even into next year. A former U.S. government official says Holder has been increasingly "adamant" about his desire to leave soon

Although 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue may be the most famous address in the country, that doesn’t mean everyone remembers it. At the Value Voters Summit today in Washington, D.C, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who was the Republican nominee for vice president in 2008, mistakenly referred to the White House as being located at “1400 Pennsylvania Avenue.” “Don’t retreat. You reload with truth, which I know is an endangered species at 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue, anyway truth,” Palin said. “The media’s favorite president. He just can’t stop telling lies.” It doesn’t appear that a 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue NW actually exists–but the closest

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

Of all the malfeasances of William Jefferson Clinton the one that would have most justified a removal from office was not the Monica hijinks, even with the attendant lying under oath and absurd parsings of the word “is,” but the pardoning of Marc Rich — the billionaire international commodities trader and mammoth contributor to, er, Clinton. Luckily for Bill, this action occurred on the last day of his presidency, making anything like impeachment moot, even though it was an example of political corruption that would have made Boss Tweed envious.

With the mid-term elections weeks away, many conservatives are confronting a difficult choice. Assuming there are no solid conservatives on the ballot, do we vote for establishment candidates? Or not vote at all? The reasons why some conservatives are on the fence or planning not to vote are well known. (And Democrats are loving every minute of it!) “Establishment Republicans have attacked us and I refuse to support any of them.” “I’m sick of RINO’s. They’re no better than the Democrats.” “Other than a few strong conservatives, the rest of the GOP stands for nothing.” I share these frustrations. The conversation in my head goes something

The Los Angeles City Council voted Wednesday to raise the minimum wage for hotel workers to $15.37, one of the highest wage requirements in the country. Hotel workers in yellow shirts packed City Hall as the council voted 12 to 3 to approve the measure, which will go into effect for hotels with at least 300 rooms beginning in July. Hotels with 150 rooms or more will have to meet the wage requirement a year later. “Hotel workers are here because they want family-supporting wages,” said Maria Elena Durazo, executive secretary-treasurer of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO, during the public

If I were a scientist, I´d stick to the Goldman Sachs principle: bet on both sides. "Believe in science, believe in God" seems to cover all the possibilities and gives you the best chance for a cheery afterlife. For a time, it was thought that astrophysicist Stephen Hawking had also left a tiny gap in his credo window for a magical deity. However, he has now come out and declared that there is no God. (Snip...) "Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that God created the universe. But now science offers a more convincing explanation."

Milton Wolf, the tea party candidate who battled Sen.

But there’s a big catch: To win Wolf’s endorsement, Orman must first agree to caucus with the Senate GOP if he were to defeat Roberts in the general election. The two men were scheduled to meet Friday afternoon at Orman’s house in Olathe, Kansas., just outside of Kansas City, according to two people familiar with the matter.
