More Problems With "Obamacare"

Now there is another problem with Obamacare.

This time it is about forcing people to insure their children. The claim being made by the government is that paying for health care for children is a "parental responsibility."

The controversy arose because members of the Church of Scientology don't want to be forced to insure their children.

Senator Harry Reid wants to make accommodations for this outfit.

Both positions prove why the ACA is a farce, and a profit-gouging fiasco.

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming ‘Wow! What a Ride!’”

Minnesota DFL Betrays The Working Class

The Minnesota Democratic Farmer-Labor Party with a super-majority sticks it to workers, again.

Interesting how these Democrats can control wages to remain at poverty levels but they can't control and redistribute wealth back to the workers who create it.

Once again working people who are experiencing a cost-of-living crisis have been screwed by the Democrats.

"At-Will" Employment Must Go

Representing casino workers engaged in union organizing campaigns in the Indian Gaming Industry, I pay close attention to elections on Indian Reservations as I do with politics in general in the three states I work in--- Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan.

March 31, 2014

Every time an increase in the minimum wage is requested, there's an outcry that the sky will fall.

However, it's really not an increase — it is an adjustment to keep up with rising prices. The ones hurt the most when prices go up are the poor and the middle class, whose salaries haven't increased.

Climate Change and the Military-Industrial Complex

The New York Times ran this article, but omitted any mention of the role the Military-Industrial Complex plays  in climate change; something the U.N. has also omitted.
