Palin causes unprecedented event:
Labor unions condemn 'lying'

Mike Hendrix refers to Palin's enemies as "deranged droolcases." What is most interesting about anti-Palin fanatics is how uninteresting they are. Insanity is interesting; stupidity is not. And never have such dull people gone so hopelessly mad.

Case in point: Americans United For Change, a labor-union front group, runs a Facebook ad with this message:
"Health insurance reform is too important for outright lies. Send Sarah Palin a message; tell her to stop lying about 'death panels.'"
If truth-in-advertising laws applied to labor unions, they would have gone out of business long ago. Labor unions are bad for the economy, period, and they are especially bad for workers in any private-sector industry where they are dominant.

The U.S. auto industry is now in receivership because of union control. It's obviously not because American workers cannot make cars -- Toyota, Nissan, Honda, KIA and many other foreign automakers have U.S. plants. But those plants are all located in "right-to-work" states, where unions can't force workers to join.

Join a labor union and you're paying dues to those who will eventually put you out of a job.

The only industry where the anti-competitive effect of unionism seems to have no such job-killing effect is . . . government. Government employee unions are a conspiracy against the taxpayer. You can look at the fiscal catastrophe in California and see the ineluctable result of union dominance in public-sector employment.

Given that the job-killing anti-economic effects of unionism is so easily demonstrated, and given the notorious corruption of union leadership, labor union officials specialize in dishonesty.

"Americans United for Change" steals money from its members dues and then uses it to buy Facebook ads? Par for the course.


  1. "Government employee unions are a conspiracy against the taxpayer."

    I've never understood why government employees needed a union; it's not as if they actually do any work, do they?

  2. The real clue as to how “IRREVELANT” Sarah Palin is documented (negatively) byt the very MSM that has been telling us for 10 months she is!
    Since she posted 8/7/09 about “Obamacare” Obama’s approval rating has dropped from the high 50% range to the low 50% range while his disapproval rating has skyrocketed from the 30% range to the mid 40% range.

    Lefties in both parties are trying to discredit conservatives (who tend to be Republican). The left, in particular the Republican left, is scared to death of Sarah which is why they work so very, very hard to discredit her; and have been for 11 months. As “Cuz” john continues to “dam her wit faint praise” again just this Sun. ABC’s #2+3 (or #3+#4 didn’t follow that closely) sais McCain backs Sarah on Death Panels - SORT OF! Implicit in the headline was the fact that he did not support her. Which is accurate he, like most on the left, try to discredit her! He is more oblique than his daughter but he still in fact attacks he. Just like J. Cesar A3S2 (or A2S3 its been over 50 years since I read Shakesspear) “he comes to prais Sarah, not to ridicule her”.

  3. P.S.
    It seems to me (and has so seemed for 7 years) that the GOP has a death wish. How else can one explain the hard to port steering since mid 01?
    But for the sake of argument I am wrong and they do honestly want to win. There is only one Republican that can beat “The One” and *SHE* is SARAH PALIN. If they do as I expect and nominate someone else HE will get re-elected.
    Mark my words and quote me in ’12!

  4. Spot on about the unions, R. S. It is disgusting that these idiots are doing this to Mrs. Palin. But it is typical of the left. Also, if she is so wrong about the "death panels", then why is the senate talking about taking out the provision? Who are the fools? The unions? OF COURSE! And as far as their ruining California, to tweak a phrase. . .YES THEY DID!

  5. But where is Sarah's long form birth certificate?

  6. These guys need to wake up, look in the mirror and say to themselves, "Oh, my God. I've turned into Bob Dole!"

  7. Stacy, you do realize that the AUFC is a 501c4 org. They can not recieve direct funds from "unions" in large donations....

    Per the IRS rules.

  8. Stacy: Methinks your comment'What is most interesting about anti-Palin fanatics is how uninteresting they are. Insanity is interesting; stupidity is not. And never have such dull people gone so hopelessly mad.'is a dead solid perfect summing up of the Jesses, Annies, and Andrews of this world.

    On the other hand, I never met a Tonya who was dull [nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more!].

    Saw this yesterday and had to click through to thank her for her well played metaphor. Hope they didn't mind.

    I couldn't help myself!
