VIDEO: Obama, president OF the unions, BY the unions, FOR the unions by American Elephant

Obama chanting SEIU after promising, as president, to “paint the nation purple”. Almost everything this president has done since in office has been to pay back unions for getting him elected. The vast majority of stimulus money went to unions, both directly and indirectly. “Shovel ready projects”, “High speed rail” and “infrastructure” all have the same purpose — to grow the public unions and provide more compulsory union dues, which in turn are spent to re-elect Democrats, who then give more of your money to unions to get themselves elected.  This is why Democrats wanted to unionize the Department of Homeland security, and TSA. Not because it is in the nation’s best interest, and not to protect any fallacious rights (you dont have a right to strike against the people); they want to unionize as many workers as possible, because those union dues go directly to electing more Democrats.

It’s incestuous, inherently corrupt, patently unfair and by definition against the public interest.

Unions were major proponents for Obamacare, even though they already have healthcare, because they figure when Obamacare destroys the private healthcare industry (as it is designed to do), and the American people are left with no choice but to beg for government run socialized medicine — they can then turn around and demand that they KEEP the money that used to pay for their healthcare as salary.

Public employee unions are the most selfish, most corrupt groups in the nation. They are enjoying boom times on your dollars, on the dollars that are taken away from employers, on the dollars that are taken out of the economy to grow government. And their lavish salaries and benefits are bankrupting the states and the federal government. While the people who pay their salaries take pay cuts, and lose their jobs, public employees are getting raises, bonuses, and in the case of the Federal Government, Obama is freezing their pay for two years, which is utterly meaningless since they already make twice what you do.

Americans are on our side on this, they know the gravy train must be cut off. It is the right side, and I think we will win big.

But Republicans also need to make sure this sticks to Obama. This is who he is, a union organizer, a Chicago-Daly Machine thug as corrupt as they come, and its time Americans understood that. It’s imperative they understand it, before he can wreak any more devastation on the country than he already has.

So contact Republicans, contact your representatives, and Republicans in Wisconsin, and let them know you support them, and not to give in to the thuggery.

Public employee unions should be illegal, as they were until the 1960′s. No one who works directly for  the American people should be allowed to organize against them, or hold vital services hostage in demands for more wages. Even FDR was against public unions. As was our first union-dues paying president:

Now THAT is how to deal with these thugs!



STUDY: FDR Made Great Depression WORSE. by American Elephant

FDR’s Great Depression, Jimmy Carter’s 1970′s malaise, and Obama’s never-ending Great Recession all have one thing in common — progressive Democrat policies.

Recessions happen. Recessions are a normal part of the business cycle; the natural ebb and flow of economic growth. Recessions, when the market is allowed to work, historically correct themselves fairly quickly — better still when the market is actually freed up.

Depressions, on the other hand, take work. Depressions take arrogance. Depressions take Democrats — the mind-boggling belief that government seizure, command and centralized control of millions of individual economic decisions will somehow foster and aid growth; that punishing economic activity with greater taxation and regulation will somehow encourage more of it; the inexplicable faith that what is most needed in times of economic stagnation is more bureaucracy.

A new study by UCLA economists, Harold L. Cole and Lee E. Ohanian, affirms what conservatives have long known — that FDR’s New Deal policies thwarted economic recovery for seven long years and turned what should have been a recession into the Great Depression:

“High wages and high prices in an economic slump run contrary to everything we know about market forces in economic downturns,” Ohanian said. “As we’ve seen in the past several years, salaries and prices fall when unemployment is high. By artificially inflating both, the New Deal policies short-circuited the market’s self-correcting forces.” [read more]

“Progressives” do not ease economic suffering — they cause it. They do not fix recessions, they cause depressions.

These are lessons that Americans can and should apply to our current endless recession. The reason the economy is not getting better is because the same people who caused it are still in control. Democrats did not inherit this recession — they’ve controlled both houses of congress since a year before it even began and two years before the financial crisis hit. When President Bush and Republicans tried over 20 times to reform Fannie and Freddy, warning of exactly the kind of economic disaster we had if they were not reformed, Democrats blocked them. The economy went south in response to their promises of massive tax increases, massive new spending, massive new regulation and has been unable to recover as no one knows what industry these American fascists will seize next, what massive new regulations and entitlements they will burden industry with — in short, the economy sucks because everyone with two nickles to rub together is terrified of what Democrats will do next.

Like the shirt says: “D” is for “Depression; “R” is for “Recovery”.

Vote, volunteer, and contribute to Republicans as though your country depended on it. It does.
