Sibyl Mikell, laid off after 34 years on the job at the Mississippi River docks In a scenario that could only (by the media) be pinned on an evil republican like Mitt Romney, what would you call it when the Obama administration outsources jobs that cause 42 blind workers in New Orleans to lose theirs?

Capitalism, Socialism, Or Communism

The impression this image and statement gave me was rather profound. One of those truths of life. But of course, not everyone agrees. America exceptionalism isn’t just a phrase, it is unique to America. That’s why I want to share a reaction of a FB “friend” who (I think) lives in India. Gita Sabet Azm thinks …

U.S. Economy At Half-Mast

Running out of topics to brag about and ways to spin them just before the mid-term elections, President Obama is up to his usual community organizer tactics.

Big Labor, Minimum Wage, Laid Bare

Here we go again. A labor union advocate riding on the coattails of fifty and a hundred years ago. There’s a reason union membership is declining. They’re no longer needed in most cases. Especially so in the public sector. Due to Big Labor’s successes in the last century, employers learned from them. They learned how …

World To Obama, Ease U.S. Oil Export Ban

Mmm, lub me some ultra-light, sweet crude. President Obama is facing growing international pressure to ease the long-standing ban on crude oil and natural gas exports, with South Korea and Mexico joining the European Union in pressing the case for U.S. oil shipments overseas.

Obama By-Passing Congress Again

Refusing to take no for an answer, Obama (not The White House, but Obama) is by-passing the Democrat-controlled Senate on a Useless Nations climate agreement.
