Democrats Want Scott Brown To Resign From A Company That Outsources Jobs

WASHINGTON -- The re-election campaign of Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) and a trio of labor groups are calling on GOP Senate candidate Scott Brown to resign from a company that outsourced U.S. jobs.

Shaheen said Monday that she supports a letter signed by the New Hampshire chapters of three Democratic-leaning labor groups: SEIU Local 1984, the AFL-CIO and the Teamsters, seeking Brown's resignation from the board of directors of Kadant, Inc. The move is the latest effort by Democrats in the Granite State to highlight Brown's role at the Massachusetts-based company, which has outsourced jobs to China and Mexico to capitalize on cheap labor, according to a recent report in the Nashua Telegraph.

The paper reported last week that Brown has earned $270,000 from Kadant, an equipment supplier for the pulp and paper industry, since joining the company in February 2013. Kadant has 14 manufacturing facilities total, four of which are based in the United States. The rest of the its manufacturing operations are located in countries that include China, Mexico, Brazil, France, the Netherlands and Sweden.

"Scott Brown has to answer to the people of New Hampshire who deserve to know why he was collecting hundreds of thousands of dollars from a company that shipped American jobs overseas and that relies on low-cost manufacturing bases in China and Mexico," Mike Vlacich, Shaheen's campaign manager, said Monday. "New Hampshire canít afford a U.S. Senator like Scott Brown who cares more about lining his own pockets -- even if it means taking jobs from U.S. workers.

That's Republicans for you. Destroying our country.

Breaking news.

Republican party officially named as the political-wing of the oil and gas industry.

An already politically active industry ramped up its presence in campaign finance even further in 2012 as presidential candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney debated climate change and potential curbs on carbon emissions. Companies with interests in oil and gas contributed more than $70 million to federal candidates in the 2012 cycle, more than double the total from 2010.

Political donations from the industry - which includes gas producers and refiners, natural gas pipeline companies, gasoline stations, and fuel oil dealers - have taken on an increasingly conservative tint over the past two decades. In the 2012 cycle, 90 percent of its contributions went to the GOP.

Taxing Air..........


"In this accessible and beautifully produced full colour book The Age's brilliant political cartoonist John Spooner and leading environmental scientist Professor Bob Carter combine with colleagues to answer a series of critical and highly controversial questions about the politics and science of climate change.

Are human industrial carbon dioxide emissions causing dangerous global warming?

If it is so then climate change surely is one of the great moral challenges of our time.

But is it possible that the so-called consensus science around global warming produced by lavishly funded research institutes and with its own international political lobby organization - the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)- is wrong?

Could it be that the emperor has no clothes?

Accessible, clearly written and illustrated with simple scientific illustrations, and accompanied by Spooner's brilliantly wry and telling cartoons, Taxing Air answers - without the spin, evasions or propaganda that pollutes most official writing on climate change - every question you have about global warming but have been too intimidated by the oppressive 'consensus' to ask."

Thumb of gubmint..........


"A few years back, we were going to be killed by global cooling, overpopulation, pesticide residues, West Nile virus, bird flu, Y2K, cellphone radiation, mad cow disease, etc. Now itís global warming.

The recent hype about global warming comes from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Most of its members are serious scientists. But reporters donít realize that those scientists, like bird flu specialists, have every incentive to hype the risk. If their computer models (which so far have been wrong) predict disaster, they get attention and money. If they say,ďIím not sure,Ē they get nothing.

Also, the IPCC is not just a panel of scientists. Itís an intergovernmental panel. Itís a bureaucracy controlled by the sort of people who once ran for student council and are ďexhilarated by the prospect of putting the thumb of the federal government on the scale.Ē"

3 - The accuracy of climate models can be determined from their output......

4 - The consensus among scientists is decisive (or even important)......

"Hereís one of the great stories of the past 25 years, entirely ignored by the dying legacy media: the UNís Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)-the bureaucratic authority that gave us global warming-is taking it all back. The new IPCC report concedes that its former prognostications were incorrect. Not only were their statistical models wrong, but IPCC scientists now ďaccept their forecast computers may have exaggerated the effect of increased carbon emissions on world temperatures-and not taken enough notice of natural variability.Ē

Six years ago, Al ďInternetĒ Gore-who has made millions on global warming hysteria-said the North Pole could be ďice-free by 2013.Ē Well, itís 2013Ö and the Arctic has grown by 60 percent. Thatís more than half the size of Europe."

Well, if you think you can do it without American citizens educated in American institutions, and without American infrastructure, including roads, water, sewage, power, and networking,--
If you think you can do it without American stability and legal protection and without armed services and financial institutions- if you can do it without American taxpayer funded airports and ports and law enforcement -
You get in line in Somalia. It's the Galt's Gulch you've been dreaming about. See how it thrives? No government to speak of, No laws, none of those pesky regulatons. Everything a libertarian / tea bagger dreams of.
Enjoy your trip.
And another hyperbolic rant from the Left. I don't know any conservatives who argue against the government filling those roles it was INTENDED to, things like providing for national defense; protecting citizens' constitutional rights; establishing federal courts, the postal service, and raising revenue to perform the ESSENTIAL functions laid out in the Constitution. And flowing from those functions is the environment that allows citizens to "pursue happiness". Meaning they can work to educate themselves, get a job, maybe create a business and employ others, etc. But it is NOT the government that comes up with the ideas and takes the risks and maybe stumbles and falls and maybe/maybe not rises again to TRY again and MAYBE this time succeed. The government CREATES NOTHING on its own. But it is the INDIVIDUAL that is the strength of this country - NOT THE GOVERNMENT.

Just like Obama, you see the Constitution as a "charter of negative liberties", only seeing it as something that "says what the states can't do to you" and "what the federal government can't do to you" and you refuse to see that that view is turning the Constitution's intent on its head. The point of the Constitution is to protect the rights of the INDIVIDUAL, not the government.

United States Government - perform those functions you were intended to do -"establish Justice, ensure Domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare" and then get out of the way and let the American entrepreneurial spirit loose. That is what made this country the powerhouse it has been - NOT the government trying to micromanage our lives and insert itself into every aspect of our lives. And consequently demanding higher and higher taxes to perform functions it was NEVER intended to perform in the first place.

Say it isn't so...
http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/state...
Have 352 bills passed the House but await action in the Senate?
Basically, yes. We used the THOMAS congressional database to pluck out the 733 measures that have passed the House so far this year. We then weeded out a few categories of bills -- ones that, for procedural reasons, were never intended to go to the Senate (such as election of the Speaker, assignment of lawmakers to committees, and procedural motions) or ones that were subsequently taken up by the Senate (either being passed or rejected).
What remained were 342 individual bills. Thatís 10 fewer than what Jenkins claimed, but we have no quarrel with her number...
Are these bills "sitting on Harry Reidís desk awaiting action"?
Resolving this claim is murkier.
First, a technical problem. Itís an oversimplification to say that these bills are "sitting on Harry Reidís desk." Many have been assigned to committees, where they would need to be approved before being taken up on the floor. While Reid has influence over what committee chairs do, a chair can -- using their own powers...
Another complication: In at least some cases, the Senate is working on a bill on the same topic, but without using the House bill as a starting point. "The disposition of a House bill is not particularly relevant to measuring Senate legislative activity,"...
We should also note that in the Senate, one member -- either from the majority or the minority -- can stop a bill in its tracks by threatening to filibuster -- a delay that requires 60 votes to break. Reasonable people can disagree about whether Reid or Senate Republicans are the biggest offenders...
...Adam Jentleson, a spokesman for Reid, countered by noting that there are 50 bipartisan Senate-passed bills awaiting House action.(Here's the list.)
Do the House-passed, Senate-stalled bills include 55 introduced by Democrats?
...When we took a closer look at the 55 Democratic-sponsored bills that passed the House, we found that fewer than half -- 24 -- could reasonably be described as substantive. And many of these were the kinds of measures lawmakers would be hard-pressed to vote against...
The remainder of the 55 Democratic-sponsored bills -- a majority -- arenít exactly the most high-profile measures pending in Congress...
Why the numbers donít tell the whole story...
Experts say this bill counting merits a grain of salt. As the breakdown of the 55 Democratic-sponsored bills suggests, many of the measures that pass the House -- and some that go on to pass the Senate -- are noncontroversial bills. Wolfensberger crunched the numbers for us and found that of the 570 bills and joint resolutions that have passed the House in the current Congress, 377, or 74 percent, originated as suspension bills -- a streamlined process used for non-controversial measures that requires two-thirds approval. And of the 142 measures signed into law by Obama, 118, or 83 percent, were approved by that same two-thirds requirement.
Meanwhile, many of the other bills that pass the House in todayís environment are bills that are intended to make a statement, not a law.
And I note that your "cut and paste" does nothing to counter the FACTS of what I stated and actually support what I stated - again.

"Have 352 bills passed the House but await action in the Senate?
Basically, yes."
"the 733 measures that have passed the House so far this year. "
"What remained were 342 individual bills."

Try again.
