Obama’s Third-Party History 

On the evening of January 11, 1996, while Mitt Romney was in the final years of his run as the head ofBain Capital, Barack Obama formally joined the New Party, which was deeply hostile to the mainstream of the Democratic party and even to American capitalism. In 2008, candidate Obama deceived the American public about his potentially damaging tie to this third party. The issue remains as fresh as today’s headlines, as Romney argues that Obama is trying to move the United States toward European-style social democracy, which was precisely the New Party’s goal.

Rep. Jackson Jr: Raising Minimum Wage to $20 Would ‘By Far Surpass’ What It Was Designed For – LOL. I am worth $100 000 / hr….

Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.) proposed raising the minimum wage to $10 an hour today but when asked why it should not be raised to $20 an hour Jackson did not answer directly, saying only that “even making the argument for $20 an hour would by far surpass” the goal the minimum wage was designed to reach.

Why Do We Hate Our Kids?

America has been left largely in the hands of us Baby Boomers, more than 75 million strong.  And even though we’ll deny it vociferously, the evidence is pretty clear that we’ve made a mess of things pretty much across the board, in large measure due to our unwillingness to put the interests of our children first.  In sum, we are selfish, entitled toads who hate our kids.

One should resist reading too much into the Wisconsin results – exit polls suggest that antipathy to recall elections themselves was the decisive factor. But certainly the unpopularity of unions in general and public employee unions in particular was a powerful subtext.

California voters deal twin blows to unions

An election night that began with Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker winning his recall election grew progressively worse for public-sector unions as California voters approved steep pension-cutting measures in two major cities.

Voters in San Diego and San Jose overwhelmingly passed ballot initiatives Tuesday to reduce retirement benefits for city workers by switching from traditional plans to 401(k)-style contribution plans. San Diego voters also approved a second proposition allowing the city to hire non-union labor on construction contracts.
