I had an interesting business trip this past week. I had to fly to Orlando for a trade show. Normally I do not rent a car as I try to make arrangements so I can either take a shared ride van or cab to the hotels and then try to walk to the convention centers. I do this mainly to try to save money and hassles. This time was no different.
After the end of the second day of the show, I had one of my customers give me a ride as I took them out to dinner. We got talking about the parking situation at the Orange County Convention Center. They were upset that they had to pay $15.00 for parking. At first I wondered what their problem was. Then they revealed why the were upset.
They relayed the story that when they pulled in line to park in the rear parking lot of the convention center, they were asked what show they were attending. They replied they were their for the ISS (Imprinted Sportswear Show). They found out later (and told the parking lot attendant the next day, they were there for the Hispanic Business Exposition. The parking fee for attending a special interest or “minority” group show Continue reading Racism Doesn’t Really Exist – As Long as You are White
In another attempt at invasion of privacy, our House of Representatives is looking to collect, store, and use DNA collected from people who have been arrested. You can read the entire H.R. 6014 bill at the House of Representatives website.
In the aftermath of the horrendous events last week at the elementary school in Connecticut, it has not taken long for the rally cry to be voiced.
President Obama asked the question over the weekend that “Are we prepared that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom?”.
Translation: If America continues to allow the freedom to own firearms that our children will continue to be killed in elementary schools and this must end. Not the killings, but the ownership of firearms and then all killings will cease.
In other words, the current administration and gun control groups are already exploiting this situation to further advance their agenda which is a vile hatred against guns, gun owners and the freedom this country allows. You should not have either freedom to own guns because it wreaks havoc on the children – and you don’t hate the children do you?
This is easily summed up by Benjamin Franklin. We can argue back and forth all the pro gun/anti-gun philosophies. However, Ben Franklin said ”He who would trade liberty for some temporary security, deserves neither liberty nor security.”
I believe that if you check history (See Nazi Germany and Hitler) that gun control was the first step in a much larger massacre committed by those wishing to secure freedom for their people.
Don’t believe that guns are the issue. It is a moral and spiritual deficit issue we face in this country. Nothing more, nothing less. And nothing to do with guns.
“Tax the Rich: An Animated Fairy Tale,” written by CFT staffer Fred Glass, is a great new propaganda video produced by the California Federation of Teachers. It is a well produced cartoon video that demonizes people who are “rich” and have lived the American Dream. It is a class warefare cartoon movie targeted at young people in our public schools. And it is coming to a school near you soon.
In spite of the heated political arena we find ourselves in at probably one of the most important, critical junctures of our generations political lifetime – you still have to be able to laugh at some things.
A couple of weeks ago Lena Dunham starred in a video where she compared voting to having sex for the first time. And it should be with “the guy” – referencing President Obama.
How low and degrading can the left get when comparing voting to having sex with the president? What kind of mind runs that way? Well, at least Julie Borowski had a sense of humor and decided to parody the video. My hat is off to Julie for doing such a good job – and having fun with it while making a strong point.
Women aren’t that stupid as Lena makes them out to be.
Over 500 coal miners from American Energy Corporation’s Beallsville, Ohio mine operations gathered together to show their united support for their jobs at the Century Mine. The miners press conference was rebuffing president Obama’s ads purporting that the miners were against presidential candidate Romney. Here is their letter to the President.
Dear President Obama:.
We are writing as the employees of American Energy Century Mine in Beallsville, Ohio. You have approved in a running television campaign ads about the Mitt Romney event that was held at our Century coal mine. These ads state that we were forced to attend this rally and that is blatantly false. There are numerous false statements and absolute lies concerning our participation in this event, we, the employees, mostly started by a local shock jock host. Since your approval is attached to these ads, you may not wish to support these mistruths. Why would you lie about the 500 working miners who have signed this letter? We, the employees of Century Mine, would request you immediately stop these false ads. Thank you. Century Mine employees.
MALLORY FACTOR_ CAPITAL FLOWS : FORBES September 10, 2012 (page 30)
“ONE OF THE GREAT mysteries of modern politics was the high level of union support for ObamaCare. Government unions spent tens of millions and used enormous political capital to pass it, yet universal health care should not be a core issue for unions because most of their members have more than adequate health care coverage. So why the overwhelming support?
Many commentators point to the concessions President Obama gave to the unions right before ObamaCare passed in Congress in March 2010. To solidifi’ labor support, Obama agreed to a seven-year moratorium on taxing the famed Cadillac health care plans that many union members receive-which increased the cost of ObamaCare by $120 billion. But this concession does not explain strong union support that existed before the President was even elected.
The real reason unions fell behind ObamaCare is that the law throws the door wide open for unionizing most of a 2l-million-member health care workforce. Right now only about one and a half million of America’s health care workers are unionized, less than 10% of the total. Many are self-employed or work in small offices and can’t be unionized under current law.
But the unions have several plans to overcome this hurdle, with the ultimate goal of unionizing every health care worker in America. The first plan is to drive more doctors, nurses and other health care workers to fold their private practices into large hospitals. Once employed by the hospitals, health care workers can be unionized as private hospital workers or as government employees if they work for government hospitals.”
