SEIU

Hook those self serve ordering kiosks to the burger robot – and PRESTO!

by Skip October 23, 2014

The unions will have been responsible for helping the process of killing off more entry level jobs, given their insistence that entry level jobs that require no to little skills pay the same as midlevel skilled jobs.  An economically bad play – except to buff the image of such ilk like the SEIU (the most socialist / totalitarian […]

The SEIU has a reputation.  Mean, ranting, left-wing, all-Obama, and did we mention left-wing?  The NH-SEA (SEIU) is the big government union around New Hampshire and their leadership whiles away their time and effort keeping Democrats in power.  Spending always goes up and your taxes with them. If you want less money in your pocket […]

A new development in the Fast Food Strike movement (to have fast food workers get a $15/hour starting wage – wrote about it here and here) being pushed by the SEIU: “wage theft”.  Simply put, companies like McDonalds are ‘stealing workers wages’ by doing what ALL companies do and the Unions are now suing them […]

Democrats ignore the hundreds of millions the Koch brothers give to charity every year, to the arts, and large donations to non-political purposes, preferring to focus on their political giving as a locus around which to organize left-wing hate. That “locus” has dropped to new lows.  Unions, who spend a lot more than the Koch […]

Thumbnail image for Democrat Donors “Biggest Threat To The Democracy”…If ‘Activists’ Are To Be Believed

Keeping ‘corporate’ money out of politics is a Democrat agenda item, so whenever “activists” bring it up two things are evident. First, Democrats are behind it and paying for it. Second, by ‘Corporate’ money they do not mean, as Grokster Susan Olsen observed, Corporations…” like the Service Employees International Union (SIEU), a 501(c)(5) tax-exempt corporation. […]

Schadenfreude, baby! SEIU gets boomeranged by Obamacare

by Skip September 27, 2013

Oh yes, those “I’m a Healthcare Voter!” days of 2007 and 2008 – Unionistas from the SEIU union (pretty much, not much more than a socialist front, IMHO) joined forces with AARP in trying to persuade voters that Universal Healthcare was needed or the country would end up in ruin.  AKA, Obamacare.  They invaded almost […]

Public Unions – “Why yes, we do use union dues to buy politicians”

by Skip October 7, 2012

From a press release from James O’Keefe and Project Veritas via RedState: “This is significant because labor unions are some of the biggest beneficiaries of taxpayer-funded jobs,” says O’Keefe. “If they’re intentionally propping up paper jobs, then they’re complicit in the fleecing of taxpayers.” The latest video from Project Veritas captures Newark SEIU President Rahaman […]

This more or less speaks for itself. Feel free to form up into work groups and report back after lunch. Or you could just lean back in your chair and bask in the glow of alternative media (aka-choices) beating up the dinosaur media like an SEIU thug on a Tea Party Protester.

by Steve MacDonald August 23, 2012

 The SEIU has just informed Republicans who NOT to vote for.  For this, we are thankful. The SEIU (SEA-NH), Obama’s shock troops, the same folks who beat up black conservatives ( or refuse to denounce such behavior), have endorsed the following “(r)epublicans” in New Hampshire.

An Apology to the NH SEA/SEIU

by Steve MacDonald March 19, 2012

No one understands the problems of perception like the Democrat Party.  They invest a good deal of time and money into hiding what they are truly up to.  Almost as much time as they spend painting pictures of their opponents for the main stream media to hang on your living room walls.  So we should […]

Isn’t it Time We Enforced the State’s IT Policies

by Steve MacDonald March 15, 2012

Democrats like to manage society, ever more so when they believe it has misbehaved.  So here’s an idea the left ought to embrace with both left arms. Because it is against state policy to use state computers for activities outside their intranet, like reading online news or–heaven forbid whiling the day away commenting on news […]

Abusive Union supporting John Lynch

by Steve MacDonald October 20, 2010

CSS is funded by the SEIU, with additional money from other major unions, a few pro-government health care groups, and yes, the Democrat Governors association. It’s policy focus claims are Energy, Economy, Health Care, and Seniors. It’s Policy page reads like Jeanne Shaheen For Senate 2008, or anything you might find at OFA then or now. It’s thin on details, high on rhetoric, and we’ve heard it before, and just recently watched it fail as applied by the left under Obama.
