I love it when Leftists are honest (it's so rare, it makes a very special treat). This video from an Occupy DC meeting recently shows former Amalgamated Transit Union local 689 president Mike Golash admitting that the goal of today's unions are to promote communism and overturn our free market system.
The late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan famously observed that "Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts." It's an admonition not taken particularly seriously by today's political left. It embraces, extols and advocates ideas and policies based on what it wishes were true, regardless of how often and how consistently the ideas have been proven wrong. Take, for instance, the minimum wage.
Imagine that, in order to increase competition among grocery stores, the government created local farmers’ markets all across the country. Anyone could sell food within these farmers’ markets — including the grocery stores. But when the grocery stores refused to participate, the government enacted regulations to force them to do so. Thus, what was meant to encourage competition instead became the means of suppressing it.
The U.S. House of Representatives took aim at the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) this past week by voting to prohibit the Obama-run labor board from using any funds to sue any state on the question of secret ballot elections. The House action was led by Representative Jeff Duncan (R-SC) in response to the NLRB’s litigation against the states of South Dakota and Arizona, two of four states where voters overwhelmingly approved state constitutional amendments protecting workers rights to secret ballot union elections.

There are at least THREE bills that could affect "choice in child care" during the current South Dakota Legislative Session. Please pray and act on these bills and pass this alert on to others.
For a small business, marketing and advertising seeks an answer to the question "How will prospective customers find me?" People today no longer reply to direct mail. They don't peruse the phone book. They use television, newspaper, magazines and other traditional media much less. In fact, they don't even ask their friends in person. They use Google or they ask their online social contacts. As a result, most small businesses would benefit from enhancing their website presence by blogging and social media connections.
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
