L.A. Stage Actors Understand Economics! No to Higher Wage.

The video above and the print version of the story at the local Fox 5 affiliate both end the same way: A San Diego Unified School District representative said no one from Loma Portal Elementary Read more [...] Continue reading →

The New Hampshire Police Union Flagger Scam

no to union The New Hampshire police union is fighting legislation that would take away their ability to force utility companies to pay them for easy work. If you have been driving any length of time you have probably come to a place where a utility company is doing repairs on a hanging wire.

Obama Seeking Emergency Court Order to Restore Amnesty

obama amnesty announced An emergency court order could process illegal immigrants and thus make it harder to enforce an overturn of the executive overreach. The Executive Branch, including the Department of Justice, wants an emergency court order. What do you think are the chances they won’t get one?

What is the need for an immediate suspension of Read more [...] Continue reading →
