Global Warming Insanity For July 1 2015

Over the past few months, I have prattled on about the insanity of the left as it regards the non-issue of  global warming. We have seen the left pillory EVERYTHING as capable of destroying the planet. For ONCE, a Hollyweirder  has come out, and kept the hysteria simple. Robert Redford has taken it on himself to exhort the U-frigging-N, of ALL organizations, to “save the planet” before it is too late. Pam Key at Breitbart.com fills us in.   Robert Redford: Moderate Weather ‘Going Extinct,’ December ‘May Be Our Last Chance’ by Pam Key  29 Jun 2015 Monday at the … Continue reading

From The “You Have GOT To be Shitting Me” File For Jun 10 2015

Over the past few years, we have done a number of posts chronicling the absolute DISMAL performance of our public schools. Teachers USUALLY get the bad rap for it, but SOMETIMES they DESERVE it as well. Between the teachers’ unions, caring LITTLE about the ACTUAL education of students, and an administrative staff that is ONLY worried about keeping THEIR six-figure salary jobs, it is NO WONDER our schools are in shambles, and our young people are about as smart as sand. Several writers contributed to this article, Laura Alcorn at AmericaC2C.com, for the first part, and Blake Neff, from The … Continue reading

From The “THAT’S BULLSHIT” File For May 30 2015

As anyone paying attention should know by now, the seemingly invincible run to the White House for Hillary Clinton is in some deep hoo-hoo. Leftists EVERYWHERE are seeming to abandon her already. Now it is the unions’ turn to pile on the poor dear. Richard Trumka, the chief goon of the AFL-CIO has come out against her over the tepid response to the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. Now I see where Trumka is coming from, BUT should Hillary survive the cat claws and long knives NOW, does ANYONE think Trumka and the union thugs will just sit out next year … Continue reading

Hypocrisy On Parade. Or, A “Union Success Story”.

Remember back to last year, when the major unions were ALL behind the “Drive For $15” movement ? They were funding the alleged “workers” in democrat-run shit holes around the country, protesting Mickey D’s, and the like. These “protesters” were picketing the WRONG places. Connor D. Wolf from The Daily Caller.com has the story.   Los Angeles Unions Like The New Minimum Wage, For Everybody But Them Connor D. Wolf, Contributor     4:54 PM 05/27/2015 Despite advocating for the Los Angeles minimum wage increase, some of the same union leaders are now asking to be exempt for negotiation purposes.

Unions Pour Millions into Clinton Foundation – Anyone Surprised?

The National Institute for Labor Relations Research (NILRR), a union watchdog group, traced at least $2 million in donations from multiple union organizations and affiliates. “U.S. Department of Labor’s union financial disclosure reports reveal that Big Labor gave at least $2,034,500 in union general treasury funds to Clinton Foundations. Union treasuries are funded mostly by compulsory union dues or fees collected from workers who would be fired for refusing … Continue reading

That Obama. Whatta Guy. Or, A “Union Success Story”.

And the hell of it is, MOST of the unionized coal miners actually listened to their union leaders, and voted for the jackanape, instead of listening to Obama himself utter these words: ” Under my plan, energy costs will necessarily skyrocket, and you can build a coal-fired power plant, but it will bankrupt you”. So, he decimates their industry, puts them on the soup lines, and THEN says OK, I’ll ease your pain. Christ, HOW could you unionized miners look at yourselves in the mirror after voting to make YOUR JOB extinct ? Michael Bastasch from The Daily Caller.com has … Continue reading

Oh The Outrage, As O turns Up TPP Heat

  Trans-Pacific Trade Agreement Citizen.org explains it this way: The TPP is a massive, controversial “free trade” agreement currently being pushed by big corporations and negotiated behind closed doors by officials from the United States and 11 other countries – Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam. The TPP would expand the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) “trade” pact model that has spurred massive U.S. trade deficits and job loss, downward pressure on wages, unprecedented levels of inequality and new floods of agricultural imports. The TPP not only replicates, but expands NAFTA’s special protections for … Continue reading

HIP HIP HOORAY ??? Not So Fast.

Living here in Southeast Lower Michigan, we are constantly bombarded by the auto industry (or what’s left of it) and it’s importance to the economy. We were told by the local leftist media that the Regime bailing out GM was the right thing to do, and if we opposed it, why, we just were HATERS. This week, the BIG NEWS in town is GM producing it’s 500,000,000th vehicle. Along with that, they are running a HUGE ad campaign touting that fact. Good for them ? How about the creditors, bondholders, and shareholders who were ROYALLY screwed when the regime bailed … Continue reading

So, The NLRB Is For CHOICE ?

Obviously NOT. Boeing, in 2010, moved the production of it’s 787 jetliners to a facility in South Carolina PRECISELY because of UNION asininity, and their attempts to BLOCK the move to begin with. This, to me, is a PRIME example of WHY more states NEED to make the move to a “right to work” state, and tell the NLRB to piss off.

“How Is That Minimum Wage Working For You, Seattle” ?

Every once in a while, I like to expose leftist weakness in economic matters, especially the specious minimum wage fight. Coming April 1st, the “joke” will be on so-called “minimum wage” earners  in Washington State. Of course, liberals NEVER think about just WHO gets screwed when they pass disastrous economic legislation or referendums that will NEVER affect THEM. We shall see about THAT, especially in Seattle. Story from Rick Moran at PJ Media.com Restaurants in Seattle Going Dark as $15 an Hour Minimum Wage Looms by Rick Moran  March 14, 2015 – 7:45 am     I like this simple, … Continue reading

Proof: Democrats Are Tool For Communist Party USA

From TPNN:   It’s been obvious to Americans who are politically awake that the Democrat Party has been poisoned by America-hating, anti-freedom Communists for decades, but it’s mostly been done in the dark, with at arms length “wink and nod” agreements, re-labeling themselves as “progressives” or “liberals,” as it’s easier to hide the over 100 million slaughtered bodies under Communist regimes using those terms. One little “wink and nod,” which was completely ignored by the compliant leftstream media, was Democrat Congressman Danny Davis, who Obama said was “one of the greatest congressmen in the country,” receiving the lifetime achievement award … Continue reading

“Union Success Stories” For Jan 24 2015

All that money spent by organized labor in a futile attempt to keep democrats in charge of ANYTHING was pissed right out the window. In this two part piece, we see their “reward” for their undying, and COERCED, support of democrats as far as a lot of the rank and file membership is concerned.

The … Continue reading

Will Rev. Al, Rev. Jesse, The Oprah, Care About This RACIST decision ?

Since it involves a beloved-by-democrats union, probably not. Just goes to show conservatives TRULY care about HELPING, not HURTING people. Unlike the communist hypocrites at AFSCME. From The Daily Caller.com     Union Cuts Ties With Black College Group Over Koch Donation 2:43 PM 07/10/2014  By Chuck Ross     A large public sector union says it is cutting ties with the United Negro College Fund over a donation it accepted from the Koch brothers, an act the union calls “a profound betrayal” to blacks.

The Government Motors Recall Fiasco…..

….Or, a more appropriate sub-title could be, Is It Good To Know The King ? Whenever the left is wringing their hands, and tsk-tsking something, it sets off my bullshit meter. So it is with the General Motors recent spate of recalls.   There is absolutely NOTHING new about the numbers, nor scope of these current recalls. While GM builds some attractive vehicles, for the price one pays for them, they should NEVER have a problem. After listening to a radio program yesterday, I decided to take a look at this mess. What I found, using the government’s own statistics, I … Continue reading

Regular readers of Hardnox and Friends know of the absolute failure most electric vehicles, embraced by this idiotic administration as “saving the planet”, has really been.

Some GOOD News. (If You Read Between The Lines)

In a cry-me-a-river story from the formerly less liberal Detroit News.com, we see THIS. Good news indeed, if you ask me. February 22, 2014 at 12:39 pm Detroit automakers worry about UAW money struggles. Tom Krisher   Associated Press United Auto Workers President Bob King, left, and Dennis Williams, now secretary-treasurer for the union.
