Via Freedom Works:
I am currently in my freshman year of high school and the incidents are happening more frequently and I believe are more severe. As you can imagine, the ongoing pressure and bullying has been disturbing to me, my friends and my family.
Just before the 2010 Midterm election, I was on the front page of the local newspaper for my political volunteer work and my teachers noticed. One of my seven teachers made it very clear that she dissaproved of my civic engagement. In a period of two months, my Geography teacher frequently would take me aside after school for a few minutes and tell me how stupid, wrong and misguided I was for being Republican. The harassment with this specific teacher got so bad, I had to switch schools halfway through the year. At this time I was only 12 years old. To my knowledge, this teacher was not disciplined at all for her actions.

“I expected a thank you,” Feibush remarked. “I didn’t expect the reaction to be what it was, go
find 40 tons of trash and put it back.”
Personally… I would tell the City Officials to “Go Pound Salt!!”

ABUJA (Reuters) – President Goodluck Jonathan and labor unions failed in overnight talks to reach a compromise over the removal of fuel subsidies that has raised fears of a shutdown of Nigeria’s oil industry, union and presidency sources said Monday.
Jonathan was expected to make a public address later on Monday and unions declined to comment until he had spoken.
Unions said Sunday that nationwide strikes and protests would resume Monday if no agreement was reached in Africa’s second-largest economy and number one crude producer.
Oil unions have said they will shut oil output if talks reach deadlock – Nigeria accounts for 8 percent of U.S. oil imports and is also a key source for Europe and Asia.
But labor sources say that if another round is planned the unions are likely to keep oil flowing.
Global oil prices were boosted by Nigeria supply fears late last week and a serious production outage would push them sharply higher, according to traders and analysts.
Colt is joining all the other innovative American manufacturing companies in the great stampede to the Right to Work South.
Colt Firearms appears to be one of the many Connecticut companies looking for a less hostile home.
To clarify, Florida is a Right-to-Work state and Connecticut is not. Which may be why the UAW is so concerned about keeping jobs in the anti-business state:.
via The Miami Herald:
Colt Manufacturing Co. announced earlier this month it is bringing 63 jobs and a new regional headquarters and product manufacturing center to Kissimmee, Fla., next year.
It’s unbelievable. Connecticut unions are going from high paying, high tech manufacturing jobs to trying to unionize day care workers. Nobody said the unions were very bright…and Connecticut is complicit. When the same state outlaws the products of its own companies there’s no reason to stick around anymore. The message is clear…Colt products are good enough for Mexican Drug Cartels (courtesy of our own ATF), but not good enough for Connecticut.
Hillbuzz: Mark Today as the Day Romney lost the GOP Nomination, for Taking the Side of the Unions in Ohio

[ Mittens Romneycare: the Cocktail Party GOP establishment's "it's his turn candidate" who intends to do absolutely nothing to combat the public sector unions in this country...a soggy cucumber and mayonnaise sandwich if ever there was one ]
Oddly enough, today I was working on a longer essay on why, exactly, I can never bring myself to support Mittens Romneycare in any capacity. I think my list had about 14 items to begin with, before Mittens delivered #15 today when he sided with the Labor Unions in Ohio against public sector employee reform that’s much needed to save my home state from financial ruin.
I didn’t like Mittens Romneycare earlier today…but I have to say I really and truly can’t stand this man now.
While at a GOP call center in Ohio where volunteers were working hard to support Governor Kasich’s effort to rein in the out of control public sector unions, Mittens refused to support the Governor’s efforts.
Every Republican coast to coast should be supporting the decertification of the Unions, particularly those working for taxpayers.
Even Steve Jobs believed the teachers’ unions, specifically, should be annihilated

Prior to his respite on Martha’s Vineyard, Barack Obama has embarked on a three day bus tour (referred to as “Downgrade One” by Eric Bolling of Fox Business Network). While on this tour, in which he is visiting places he won in 2008 and where unemployment is BELOW the national average, Obama is spouting that his plan is to present a “Jobs Plan” sometime in September!
His bus tour, at the taxpayer expense, is nothing more than a campaign stump.
And then there is talk of a new government department— the Department of Jobs. Hell, as it is, I think we need to eliminate the Department of Education and the EPA. The Department of Commerce and the Department of Labor should be merged….. and hey, jobs… labor… they correlate! I think we’re making progress in cutting government size and cutting spending!

The Wisconsin Senate has had enough of the shenanigans of the AWOL Democrats.
In an effort to show that they would not allow the AWOL Dems to “stop” government, the Senate removed all of the “fiscal” portions of the legislation that was at the heart of the battle in the heartland. With the fiscal portions removed, the quorum was not needed, and the vote on the unions and collective bargaining for state employees was scheduled.
News of the scheduled vote sparked the return of the crowds of protestors back to the Capitol building. Some of the AWOL Dems attempted to make the quick trip back to Madison to try to block the efforts.
But this evening, with on GOP vote against the measure, the Wisconsin Senate voted to approve the Governor’s measures regarding the unions.
