Wisconsin really means reality prevailed (and more!)

After all the really almost funny and sometimes just pathetic eviscerating from the Left after they and their unions failed miserably in their Wisconsin recall elections, Charles Krauthammer sums it up perfectly with his usual unmatched insight, in his latest National Review column: June 7, 2012 8:00 P.M. What Wisconsin Means Reality was on the […]

Public-sector unions are wrong. Normal voters, taxpayers, non bongo drummers, tend to agree.

As I’ve mentioned, after nine years or so, I’ve sadly dropped our contract with Ann Coulter for her weekly column. But I’m still in a trade union with her. The union makes us strong, dontchaknow. Besides, the union means I can never really fire her anyway. On the other hand, specifically my far left hand, […]

Who wouldn’t enjoy firing these people?

Earlier this week, Mitt Romney got into trouble for saying, “I like being able to fire people who provide services to me.” To comprehend why the political class reacted as if Romney had just praised Hitler, you must understand that his critics live in a world in which no one can ever be fired — […]

Union extremists pushing aggressive sex-ed on students

There has been a great deal of discussion in Ontario recently about a radical and intrusive sex education curriculum being proposed by the province’s Liberal government. What is sometimes forgotten in all this is how so many of these redundant and damaging proposals are initiated by teachers’ unions. Not, it should be stressed, ordinary teachers, […]

Unions are moving left, welcome higher taxes, because they rely on gov; But…

…It might well be asked why so many CEOs and huge corporations are also happily supporting the Left, and donating so much of their and their shareholders’ cash to Democrats  —  even the most left-wing or progressive Democrats. It’s clear to me why that is: Thanks to progressives, and short-sighted people who think with their […]

Union Member Was F—ing Polite. Customer Was F—ing Lying.

Another big union blindly defends a union member  —  this member accused by a customer  —  a passenger on a regional transit system (Toronto’s “TTC”)  —  who saw him urinating in public while on duty in full view of at least that one passenger.  Who of course complained.  Couldn’t happen on account of our members […]

Reagan Democrats: ‘Tea Baggers’ or MSNBC Viewers?

Among the most preposterous claims being made on MSNBC about the fight over public sector unions in Wisconsin is that Gov. Scott Walker and the Republicans are losing “Reagan Democrats” by taking on government employees. The theory seems to have been concocted by Howard Fineman, editor at The Huffington Post, who said, back in February […]
