  • SEIU leader attacks Eagle Scout

    Posted on Nov 17, 2009 by J. Justin Wilson

    As an Eagle Scout, I take this one personally. Nick Balzano, president of the SEIU local in Allentown, PA, didn’t kick a puppy, or salt the earth, but he did attack an Eagle Scout. Remind me again who attacks an Eagle Scout for community service? Remind me again who chooses to bring the wrath and […]

    From the Wall Street Journal: More than a 150 people gathered outside Goldman Sachs’ offices here on Monday to demand that the investment bank donate billions set aside for employee bonuses to families at risk of foreclosure.  The event was organized by the Service Employees International Union and the community group National People’s Action, which […]

    SEIU President Andy Stern is NOT a socialist. He wants to make sure you know this….in case there was any doubt. [youtube][/youtube] Then why is he sweating so much?   OK, we admit it.  We just like watching Andy Stern squirm.

  • Newsom’s nuisance

    Posted on Nov 13, 2009 by J. Justin Wilson

    It begins like a horrible joke: What do a 14-foot puppet, incense, a woman dancing to funk music, a group of Native Americans, and a gaggle of people in purple shirts have in common? Answer: They all showed up at Gavin Newsom’s homecoming meeting at City Hall yesterday in the city of San Fransisco. Wow, […]

  • Election fraud: California unions puts Florida’s hanging chads to shame

    Posted on by J. Justin Wilson

    California’s labor wars continue bloody and unabated between the SEIU and the UHW.  The Wall Street Journal couldn’t even paint this turd– so much so, they covered it twice. From November 11: “Unions are competing for shrinking turf and members, and the most ferocious intramural battle today involves Mr. Stern’s union here in California. For […]
