Sununu and Unions at a Standstill

by Steve MacDonald April 30, 2017

Good. (UL) Gov. Chris Sununu has taken a hard line against any pay raises in new collective bargaining for five unions that represent more than 13,000 state workers. And when one union left the table in disgust and declared an impasse in early March, Sununu’s negotiators ended salary talks with the other four, a sharp […]

Unions Want Exemption to Mandatory $15/hr Minimum Wage they Just Pushed

Unions pushed for a $15 minimum wage in Los Angeles. They worked hard to make sure there were no exemptions, work-arounds, or loopholes for businesses. But they’d like very much–thank you–to carve out an exemption for themselves. (Just get a load of the language they use…) “With a collective bargaining agreement, a business owner and […]

Bill O’Neil was last seen as both the President of the local 2320 Electrical workers union, and a Manchester, New Hampshire Democrat House rep., who won his seat in a special election.  But a few days ago I got an anonymous and unsolicited email that suggests he has had to step down after allegations of […]

Obama Care is Just Another Laser Pointer And You Are All Cats.

by Steve MacDonald July 16, 2013

I recently reiterated my oft-said point on GrokTALK! this week that you can’t be a principled Republican and support unions; voting against Right to Work for example mandates employee funding of the Democrat machine and everything it tries to destroy.  And Obama Care was just the biggest, most recent example.  Unions were all in.  They […]

When Life Gives You Unions…You Make Unionade!

by Steve MacDonald December 14, 2012

Every time I buy a new vehicle–my newest one is eight years old, its driveway companion is twelve so this does not happen often–I suddenly find myself noticing how many other people drive the same car (Truck, Van, or SUV.)  It probably works the same way with sweaters or Democrats who cheat one their wives… […]

The Foundation for New Hampshire Independence

by Steve MacDonald November 14, 2012

This just tumbled into my in-box and perhaps it is old news now.  It is a press release from a non-profit called the Foundation for New Hampshire Independence.  I don’t currently know much more than we can glean from the press release but they’ve got a web site (here), some press, and it’s run by […]

Look For The Union Label…

by Steve MacDonald November 2, 2012

That catchy tune from the 70’s/80’s ad campaign promoting Union made products might need to be re-spun with a new front man in the shadow of Hurricane Sandy.  Relief crews that drove all the way to New Jersey from Alabama were told thanks, but no thanks—we don’t want your help….because you use non-union labor. This […]

Revolution Foundation

by Tom August 20, 2012

The Daily Caller ran a story this weekend about a book set to come out tomorrow, by Mallory Factor, called “Shadowbosses: Government Unions Control America and Rob taxpayers Blind“. The premise of the book is that Obamacare was just a big ploy to unionize the estimated 16-17 million strong healthcare workforce (12.5% of US workers, […]

The Union Narrative on The Arrest Of Walker Supporter at Barret-Clinton Event

by Steve MacDonald June 3, 2012

I’ve received a few comments on my previous post about the Barret rally at which a US Marine protester was removed and arrested.  The commenters are making a case that David Willoughby was cursing and presented a threat to the Mayor and former President Clinton, which the Milwaukee Police News documents as follows. David B. […]

A Silber In The Minds Eye

by Steve MacDonald April 7, 2011

So in the face of this economic catastrophe, which the democrats happily sold as a disaster not unlike a Biblical plague, what did NH Democrats do? They decided that despite that we were going to take in 23% more revenue than we did when times were “good” and went on a grow government spending spree. You could call that a revenue problem, but I think it is really more of a democrats are selfish, ideological, tax and spend A-holes problem.

2012 Can’t Come Fast Enough

by Steve MacDonald March 30, 2011

The Sunday Union Leader had a letter to the editor titled “2012 can’t come fast enough.” It suggests that New Hampshire did not vote for a majority and leadership intent on stripping collective bargaining agreements from 70,000 New Hampshire workers…” which is a number I would contest given this data. (Where we may be hiding 70,000 public sector union workers is a question worth exploring, but not right now.)

Charlie Bass…”Leader of the PAC”

by Tom July 1, 2010

According to this posting on BlueHampshire.com (yes, we give credit/link when we reference the Libs’ blogs, even though they don’t credit us), Charlie Bass leads the "pack" in NH CD-2 for…wait for it… PAC campaign donations.  41% of total, to be clear. Even before you see the evidence, do you really doubt this claim?  You […]
