Rank and File Union Membership Post Victories

On Monday the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) issued its decision in the matter of Harris v. Quinn. In its decision not to exempt all public workers from paying union dues, it was nevertheless apparent that workers were handed a victory over unions. In a 5-4 ruling following political lines, SCOTUS affirmed that just because home healthcare workers received Medicaid payments they were not employees of a government agency and subject to forced unionism or required to pay dues because of supposed union representation. The irony of this is that many of the home healthcare workers are independent contractors, not state workers, who have been forced to pay forced union dues because of the SEIU's close political ties to former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich.  It could have been much worse for organized labor if SCOTUS had determined, as it should have, that no public employees should be forced to be part of the union or pay union affiliation/representation fees.

Fifty-five percent of voters believe that Hillary is experienced and qualified enough to handle the presidency. However, like Mitt Romney, the public isn't convinced they can trust her. More voters have doubts about her trustworthiness than those who believe she is honest and will work for the common man. [more...]

America - Biggest Bankroller of Palestinian Killers

The search for the three abducted Israeli teenagers, Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shaar, and Naftali Frenkel (who held Israeli and American citizenship), ended on June 30th with the grisly discovery of their bodies in a shallow grave near the West Bank city of Hebron. They were found by civilian volunteers from an Israeli field school in the area, who alerted Israeli security forces. The boys appeared to have been shot, perhaps shortly after the abrupt ending of a cell phone call from one of the teens in which he said, "I was kidnapped." Cartridges of bullets were found in the burnt out vehicle that was determined to be the car carrying the kidnapped teens. [more...]
