SORT BY Relevancy
When President Obama pushed his health care overhaul plan through Congress, he counted labor unions among his strongest supporters. But some unions leaders have grown frustrated and angry about what they say are unexpected consequences of the new law -- problems that they say could jeopardize the health benefits offered to millions of their members. The issue could create a political headache next year for Democrats facing re-election if disgruntled union members believe the Obama administration and Congress aren't working to fix the problem. "It makes an untruth out of what the president said, that if you like your insurance, you could keep it," said Joe Hansen, president of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union. "That is not going to be true for millions of workers now."
The bill debate for HR 1120 will be today at 11:30AM ET. The GOP is strongly against the National Labor Relations Board. Follow the bill debate America. This bill is about working Americans. The GOP has pieced together material they feel will end labor unions in the workplace. Labor unions are the closest thing working Americans have to lobbyist. American workers need a voice just as CEO's of America and foreign companies operating in America has VOICES, like ALEC. OWS is the voice of the people and consequently they are villainized by corporate money mouths. We the people need jobs. We the people need better paying jobs. We the people need to be able to have a voice in our work environment. We the people need to keep the accomplishments we have made over the decades, thanks to unions being our voices with corporate representatives. Job uncertainty is nothing but a GOP hoax to justify continued outsourcing of USA jobs, while not hiring American workers. Be sure your representative stands against HR-1120 or you just may be standing in a line that used to be the unemployment line. For you do know, the GOP have plans in the making to end unemployment benefits as we know it.
Today, we going to examine the ongoing battle between Public Labor Unions and the Republican Governors in the Midwest United States from Wisconisn, Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana. What will be the future of collective bargaining? What role does the public safety/privative labor union movement fit in this battle? What will happen if a TEA Party or GOP Candidate wins the Governor's office in the Commonwealth of Kentucky? Our featured guest is from the American Legion in Nevada conversating for Patriotic Freedom Rides on Armed Forces Day on May 21st.
The Greatest Black Atheist is back up in this situation.
We'll get back to the redstate ideas for weakening the democratic base.
Last go around we covered part 1 on the black vote.
Today, let's go over part two with Labor Unions.
Using his strongest language to date, Pope Francis told Italian Mafia members on Saturday that they are excommunicated from the Catholic Church.
Let's get to it.
Any political topic is up for discussion. Talk about what is happening in your State. From sea to shining sea, we want to hear from you and what are your hopes as we fast approach the 2014 Midterm Elections of 2014. Please say your first name and where you are calling from?
Tell a friend about our humble little radio show as our aim is to mobilize voters to register, organize from a grassroots level, fight the 1% and ulltimately vote Democratic. There is no excuse not to vote as many countries around the world don't have that luxury. Power corrupt, absolute power corrupts absolutely. From 2010 until now the Republicans have had their reign of terror against the Middle Class, creating jobs, outsourcing manufacturing jobs, fighting Labor Unions, against raising the Minimum Wage, trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) with nothing to replace it, crazy legislation against Women's Health and Rights, Xenophobic Immigration stance against all people (who are non-White), etc. The list goes on and on with no end in sight to their madness and mayhem.
Time to end their collective madness by voting them out this November 2014. Let's take back the power from ignorant, racist, uneducated, narcissistic, xenophobes who are a few. The trumpet has sounded my countrymen all, so wake from your slumber and answer the call. The GOP, fueled (or threatened?) by Tea Party psychopaths have waged war on well thinking Americans. They have lost their way and are dragging America down into an abyss that, if not corrected, will be too late. We've come so far but our best days are still ahead. There is no such thing as giving up in our vocabulary and we suspect the same rings true for you our loyal listeners.
So call us and tell us what's on your mind as we move forward into the 21st Century.
On Sunday Jim & I were very excited to welcome as our guests, movie critic BETTY JO TUCKER of MOVIE ADDICT HEADQUARTERS and NANCY LOMBARDO of COMEDY CONCEPTS *** WORKERS AND LABOR UNIONS IN THE MOVIES. * * Sometimes Hollywood loves the working class but lately . . . not so much. * * What was the last pro-union film you’ve seen at the movies? “Norma Rae”? My favorite is more recent; “Life or Something like It” is pro-union and under-appreciated. In the movie the protagonist is a lady who changes from a prissy perfectionist fast-tracker due to a stranger’s premonition and to an epiphany. Perhaps an epiphany she had when a bit tipsy and leading the workers of a strike on a loud song fest of “We Can’t Get No Satisfaction.” * * * A few of the movies we talk about include Modern Times*On the Waterfront*Silkwood*FIST*Employee of the Month,*Office Space* And . . . remember when Lucille Ball was on the candy factory manufacturing line, woops, the line speeds up and they stuff their mouths, hats and blouses(!!) with chocolate to keep up? *** Scroll down the page to see video clips from some of the movies we discussed. *** The movie “Salt of the Earth” can be viewed online at Internet Archives. *** Music Addict Headquarters with Betty Jo Tucker * * * Comedy Concepts with Nancy Lombardo * * ** Betty Jo's Blog ** Nancy Lombardo’s Website “Comedy Concepts” ******* ****** Another movie not to miss from 2010 > "MADE IN DAGENHAM" < Comedy Concepts host Nancy Lombardo has interviewed director, Nigel Cole, about his new feature which stars Sally Hawkins. *http://www.Blogtalkradio.com/comedy-concepts/2010/11/02/nigel-cole-director-made-in-dagenham*

Todo lo que te viniere a la mano para hacer, hazlo según tus fuerzas. Ecl. 9: 10.
Mientras Jesús trabajaba en su niñez y juventud, su mente y cuerpo se desarrollaban. No empleaba temerariamente sus facultades físicas, sino de una manera que las conservase en buena salud, a fin de ejecutar el mejor trabajo en todo ramo. No quería ser deficiente ni aun en el manejo de las herramientas. Fue perfecto como obrero, como lo fue en carácter. Por su ejemplo, nos enseñó que es nuestro deber ser laboriosos, y que nuestro trabajo debe cumplirse con exactitud y esmero, y que una labor tal es honorable. El ejercicio que enseña a las manos a ser útiles, y prepara a los jóvenes para llevar su parte de las cargas de la vida, da fuerza física y desarrolla toda facultad. Todos deben hallar algo que hacer benéfico para sí y para otros. Dios nos asignó el trabajo como una bendición, y sólo el obrero diligente baila la verdadera gloria y el gozo de la vida. La aprobación de Dios descansa con amante seguridad sobre los niños y jóvenes que alegremente asumen su parte en los deberes de la familia, y comparten las cargas de sus padres. Los tales, al salir del hogar serán miembros útiles de la sociedad (Meditaciones diarias, 2014).

David Bego comments on the recent jobs report suggesting that instead of lobbing bombs, the President uses flowery and misleading rhetoric to achieve the destruction of the nation’s work force and economy through open borders and the ACA! He says that the jobs report failed to identify that the net 288,000 jobs consists of approximately 500,000 full-time jobs lost and replaced by 788,000 part-time jobs, realistically providing less take home pay for employees and failing to qualify them for the mandates of employer-provided health care insurance. Thank you Affordable Care Act (ACA)! Tune in to hear more!
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
