Report: Taxpayers Spent Millions On Union Work

Why should we expect federal employees to actually work for us? Wouldn’t our money be better used if we paid these federal employees to organize their unions so that they can figure out how to squeeze more money from us?

Salon goes (?) soft-fascist, Frets, Why Uber Must Be Stopped

Months ago I wrote about the “hipster fascists.” These are the folks who hold themselves out to be in favor of new ideas and innovation but in fact find much comfort under the wing of the warm, suffocating, life squeezing, state.

Invariably the people who benefit form unionized government work howl and insist that they are in fact the “good guys.” They are just trying to do their job and to be paid adequately for it. And oh, by the way, don’t touch their pension. We should focus our attention on the evil corporate America.
