Do You Fund A Terrorist Network?

According to the FBI: Domestic terrorism is the unlawful use, or threatened use, of force or violence by a group or individual based and operating entirely within the United States or Puerto Rico without foreign direction committed against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof in furtherance of political or social objectives.

Bakers Union Costs 300 St. Louisans Their Jobs UPDATE

**UPDATE Union Declares Victory AsHostess Goes Out of Business. No more Ho Hos. **** Unions destroy themselves like pathetic drunks, dragging down everyone around them. In a fine example of anti-strategic thinking and un-game theory, the Bakers Union put 637 of its members out of work yesterday. Hostess—makers of Twinkies—is bankrupt. Part of the bankruptcy involved rewriting union contracts to allow the company to stay in business. Instead of taking one for the team and helping their company crawl out of its fiscal hole, the Bakers went on strike. Read more →

Bad Times for Unions

Wisconsin The boards at Democratic Underground crackled on June 12. It was just announced in Wisconsin that the unprecedented recall elections of Republicans will take place August 9. The leftists dreamed. Visions of a union-boss oligarchy danced in their heads. Posters misquoted Marx and Lenin. Others wanted nothing to do with waiting two months for an election: they were ready to take up arms and violently overthrow the Wisconsin government. Read more →

UMSL Killing American Males

David Brooks—the former conservative—skewered the University of Missouri St. Louis yesterday. Brooks wasn’t aware, and UMSL administrators don’t read. But some of us caught it. Brooks wrote of _The Missing Fifth._ **Did you know that 20 percent of American men in their primes don’t work? ** Americans should be especially alert to signs that the country is becoming less vital and industrious. One of those signs comes to us from the labor market. Read more →

UMSL: Communist Recruiting With Taxpayer Dollars

The University of Missouri St. Louis uses tax dollars to provide a recruiting station for the Communist Party USA—an organization whose purpose is to shred the United States Constitution. UMSL Student Philip Christofanelli heroically chronicles the remarkable Marxist indoctrination known as “Introduction to Labor Studies” on BigGovernment.com. I’ll give you a taste: Prof. Giljum then introduced Tony Pecinovsky, a local organizer for the Communist Party, who proceeded to speak to us for two hours about the beliefs of the Communist Party and the benefits of membership.

Judy Ancel: Teacher of the Year

Judy Ancel is the University of Kansas City instructor responsible for teaching students to use violence, sabotage and intimidation as political tools. She’s telling the Kansas City Star that she’s receiving threats from people upset that she teaches students to threaten others. I oppose violence, sabotage, and intimidation as political tools. But Judy Ancel’s message of violence seems to have gotten through to some people. Too bad Ancel doesn’t use her skills for goodinstead of evil. Read more →

4 Updates on University of Missouri Story

Big news day in the advance of liberty in our battle against collectivists. First, KMOX is reporting that an UMSL professor has resigned** over the controversy**. For the life of me, I cannot find who the professor is.

Second, University of Kansas City refuses to accept responsibility for what goes on in its classroom. Read more →

Tea Party Leader condones political violence: “It certainly has its place. It’s a tactic that should be used at the appropriate time. I believe in a violent overthrow … , and that freedom is found at the barrel of a gun”

Did I say “Tea Party Leader?” ** I meant labor union leader Don Giljum condones violence, intimidation, and sabotage.** Giljum’s the business manager for Operating Engineers Local 148 and a lecturer at University of Missouri-St. Louis. It’s in the UMSL classroom that he pontificates and brags about the … the uglier side of negotiations. Here’s what he actually said about violence for political purposes: It certainly has its place. It’s a tactic that should be used at the appropriate time. Read more →

ACTION: Melt the Phones

I’m going to ask you to melt phones in Jefferson City, UMSL, UMKC, and Mizzou. I’m asking you to do this today and tomorrow. I’m following up with an email to you. It’s sad that our state’s premier University System has fallen so far. Follow the #mounion hash tag on twitter Jay Nixon just asked the legislature to transfer $400 million from the taxpayers to the University of Missouri System. Unless the Governor or the Legislature acts at your request, some of that money will go to put you out of work. Read more →
