Former Striking Hostess Workers' Eligibility For Govt.'Trade Adjustment Assistance' Not a National Story

By Tom Blumer | February 21, 2013 | 09:36

Yesterday, the Department of Labor announced that it had certified "more than 18,000 former Hostess workers around the country as eligible to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance." I'll save excerpts from DOL's inane announcement for after the jump.

The story has garnered some local coverage in areas affected by Hostess plant closures late last year, including a couple of regional Associated Press stories. But the AP, based on a search on "hostess," did not have a story at its national site as of 9 a.m. today, even though former Hostess workers in 48 states are affected. Additionally, virtually every story found in a Google News search on "Hostess trade adjustment" (not in quotes) is local in nature. Could this possibly be because doling out tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars to workers whose unions thought the company was bluffing when it said it would throw in the towel without acceptable labor contracts is more than a little embarrassing, especially when President Barack Obama is simultaneously claiming that the federal government will have no choice but to lay off and furlough employees if sequestration takes place?

Here is most of DOL's announcement (bolds are mine throughout this post):

Gun Control Was – Historically – About Repressing Blacks

Washington’s Blog
Feb 21, 2013

Preface: I was raised to be against guns. My parents hated guns, and believed that they only lead to crime and accidental shootings.

I was raised in a blue state, and I have long been deeply influenced by leading voices for non-violence, such as Gandhi and King. So – until recently – I was pro gun-control.

As such, I was stunned to learn about the historical background behind gun control campaigns.

DMV says Iraq war veteran's personalized license plate ICUHAJI encourages violence and is vulgar

By Daily Mail Reporter

PUBLISHED: 13:00 EST, 20 February 2013 | UPDATED: 13:02 EST, 20 February 2013

An Iraq war veteran's ongoing fight to get his personalized license plate back entered a new phase after the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles ruled that the plate encourages violence and is vulgar.

Sean Bujno's plate reads:‘ICUHAJI,’ which can be read to state:‘I See You, Haji.’ Some Arab-Americans object to that phrase.

A circuit court judge ruled last November that the DMV couldn't deny the Chesapeake man's license on the basis that it denigrated individuals of a particular nationality.

Most radicals on either side seem to hate specific groups of people. Most of the radical left hate religious groups, those against abortion, the NRA, etc. It is definitely a two-way street.

Although there are posters from the radical right and radical left, I believe the vast majority of posters just feel very strongly about their specific ideologies. Disagreeing on policies, methodologies, opinions, etc. does not necessarily involve hate.

Tea Party 2.0: Focus On The Four R’s & Fight Back
Rebrand. Retool. Recruit. Re-engage.

By: LaborUnionReport (Diary)| February 5th, 2013 at 10:00 AM

Last Monday evening, I had the privilege and disappointment of speaking with yet another Tea Party group that had come to hear a message on How to Become a Force Multiplier.

I say it was a privilege to speak to this group (and others like it) because, as always, I found the group comprised of Americans concerned about the future direction of America and highly desirous to hear a message on how to save and restore it.

Yet, it was also a disappointment because, after nearly four years of this upstart movement—this “beautiful chaos” called the Tea Party Movement—after all the demonization by the institutional Left and its media apparatchik; the backstabbing by the Republican establishment; after millions of dollars of donations from large and small donors alike, last Monday’s group (like so many others) were largely unaware of the size of the behemoth we face and, worse, have never been given the basic tools necessary to lead a movement.

As a former mobilization coordinator for the other side, I was disappointed to meet yet another Tea Party group that, after nearly four years, had not even formed a committee to recruit more people into their ranks—something that is absolutely essential to building a movement.[Worse is the fact that, given the age of many Tea Party activists, attrition in the movement is a very real problem.]

While their naivete is not their fault, I was left wondering: Where has all the money gone from all the donations given to the legacy groups? Though it is, in many cases, too late now, why didn’t anyone teach these amateur leaders of a movement how to lead a movement?

It is for all of the above reasons, we (collectively) need to re-evaluate the direction of this hybrid movement called the Tea Party.

Each and every individual that remains associated with the Tea Party movement, needs to look closer at what has gone well and, more importantly, what hasn’t gone well with the Tea Party.

Below are recommendations, for your consideration, to help rebuild a movement that has been attacked (unjustly) by its enemies as well as its alleged “allies.”

Before you can begin to focus on How to Become A Force Multiplier, as I observed (again) last Monday, there must be a re-examination of the Tea Party and where it is going.

Let’s start with some basic needs:

Graham: A National I.D. Card ‘Is the Public’s Way of Contributing’
10:51 AM, Feb 21, 2013 • By JEFFREY H. ANDERSON

Having profoundly failed to enforce federal immigration law for the past several decades, the federal government is now angling to use the immigration debate as a means to accentuate its own power. The Wall Street Journal reports that Senator Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.), among others, supports a national biometric I.D. card, calling it “the public’s way of contributing to solving the problem” of illegal immigration.

'Black Presidents': 6 United States Commanders In Chief Before Obama
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/18/blac...
Posted: 02/18/2013
Several scholars have discussed the genealogy of these presidents in the past, and the debate was reignited after Obama was elected in 2008.
Check out the slideshow below for a list of former heads of state who allegedly were descendants of African-Americans:
Starts with Thomas Jefferson;-)
The Republican Party first came to power in 1860 with the election of Lincoln to the Presidency and Republicans in control of Congress and again, the Northern states. It oversaw the saving of the union, the end of slavery, and the provision of equal rights to all men in the American Civil War and Reconstruction, 1861-1877.[6]

Big Three Network Double Standard on Labeling Scandalous Politicians
By Geoffrey Dickens | February 21, 2013 | 11:33
All too often when reporters are discussing Democrats caught in scandals, they develop a peculiar speech impediment that prevents them from uttering the "D" word. However, when members of the GOP stumble, the word "Republican" cascades out of the mouths of reporters.
When news broke on February 15 that former Democratic Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. was charged with improperly spending campaign funds on (among other items) Michael Jackson and Bruce Lee memorabilia, the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network anchors and reporters struggled to get their lips to form the word "Democrat." In 15 total stories on Jackson, reporters failed to utter the "D" word in 11 of them (73 percent). On the February 21 CBS This Morning Jackson was labeled a Democrat, but only in an on-screen graphic.
When word got out that the FBI was investigating New Jersey Democratic Senator Bob Menendez's jaunts (that may have included solicitation of prostitutes) with a campaign contributor to the Dominican Republic, the Big Three networks whistled past the scandal by airing a total of just eight stories since the story broke on January 24.
The reluctance to attach the "D" label to Jackson and give limited coverage to Menendez are typical examples of the liberal media's reluctance to tarnish the Democratic Party with its more ethically- challenged members. It's a courtesy that they have not extended to scandalized members of the GOP.
Over the years, the MRC has chronicled the vast disparity in how GOP politicians embroiled in scandals are covered compared to how sullied Democrats are covered, or in some cases, not covered.

<quoted text>completely agree with ya,lelf reminds me of lift over 60s hippies
Sadly, and to the detriment of the country, left over hippies are in control of way too many of our institutions. Most of them like Chris "tingles" Mathews live in exclusive, upscale all white communities.

"Like many suburban towns throughout the United States during the first half of the 20th century, Chevy Chase excluded individuals based on race and religion. Founder Francis G. Newlands was an "avowed racist"[3] who in 1912 mounted his presidential campaign on a platform that called for a constitutional amendment to disenfranchise black men and limit immigration to whites only. Three years earlier, the Chevy Chase Land Company had brought suit against a developer who had begun to sell lots to black people in a planned subdivision called "Belmont" on the grounds that the developer had committed fraud by proposing "to sell lots...to negroes."[3]

By the 1920s, exclusionary language had begun to appear in Chevy Chase real estate deeds. Some prohibited both the sale or rental of homes to "a Negro or one of the African race."[4] Others prohibited sales or rentals to "any persons of the Semetic (sic) race."[5] By World War II, such restrictive language had largely disappeared from real estate transactions, and all were voided by the Supreme Court's 1948 decision in Shelley v. Kraemer."

That's where Chrissy chose to live. His HQ to chastise other whites who can't afford to be his neighbor.

Thank George Bush. Most of us haven't forgotten.
In the wake of a recession that began roughly seven weeks after President Bush took office, America experienced six years of uninterrupted economic growth and a record 52 straight months of job creation that produced more than 8 million new jobs. During the Bush presidency, the unemployment rate averaged 5.3 percent. We saw labor-productivity gains that averaged 2.5 percent annually — a rate that exceeds the averages of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. Real after-tax income per capita increased by more than 11 percent. And from 2000 to 2007, real GDP grew by more than 17 percent, a gain of nearly $2.1 trillion.

so were the early drug laws. probably cheerleaded by 'Progressive' thinkers like those that formed the original KKK.

who were those 'Progressive' folks, again, NTR/WA?

yep, things sure do change... from whips and chains to housing vouchers and EBT cards.

then, again, as I said, SOME things never change.

I'm very confident I can defend my home, or myself when out, with my meager 7 shot semi automatic. I'll say 99% of the instances when lawful guns are used in defense are instances when not one round is actually fired.
We have a serious problem when 20 small children are slaughtered by the latest nutjob, we have to do something.
