"Right" to Work in Indiana; SEC Waivers; 21,000
Super Bowl Sunday will host an Occupy Indiana as OMOTS congregate outside the stadium to protest the ongoing demolition of unions.
Question: What does this "Right to Work" phrase exactly mean?
Answer: It is Republican New-Speak, a way to convey to the population that by having to join a union there is NO RIGHT TO WORK! It's real meaning refers to the idea that by NOT JOINING A UNION, OMOTS have NO RIGHTS to meet as a group to negotiate pay, benefits and above all health insurance.
The stadium, Lucas Oil Stadium, in Indianapolis, Indiana where the Super Bowl will be held was built between September 2005 and August 2008 by UNION LABOR!
And now, as fans go hysterical for football, taxpayers (as usual) will be digging into their pockets for the upkeep and maintenance of this stadium. See link --
The irony of all of this: Indiana is attempting to curb union activity in the state, make taxpayers pay more for the $720 million stadium and pretend to the locals that their "Right to Work" means NOT JOINING A UNION!
SEC ISSUES 21,000 WAIVERS FOR LARGE BANKS
According to the story below, big banks are skirting the law and getting away with all kinds of sharp practices by applying for and receiving WAIVERS.
Of course the SEC under BUSH was gutted and had its budget cut to the bone. Now it is avoiding all out battle with the BIG BANKS for two reasons: budgetary restraints and head honchos at the top of the SEC with strong banking relationships.
Here's a press release for Meredith Cross, SEC Corporation Finance Director:
Cross worked at the law firm Wilmer Hale LLP - http://www.wilmerhale.com/ - with clients such as Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, HSBC Finance, Morgan Stanley and our good buddies MONSANTO!
Full list of clients below -
Is it any wonder why BIG BANKS are getting away with tiny, puny slaps on the wrist?
Another disgusting scandal. If an OMOTS neglects to file taxes correctly a fine is applied and RIFLED RUTHLESSLY from his paycheck!
IT'S OFFICIAL - 21,000 NOW ON NO-FLY LIST
This number has DOUBLED since 2010.
In many cases, people with the SAME NAME or SIMILAR NAMES have been placed on the list due to DHS GROSS INCOMPETENCE and INEPTITUDE.
NOT ON THE NO-FLY LIST
It seems gross HUMAN RIGHTS abuser Yemen's ruthless dictator Saleh is NOT ON THE NO FLY LIST! No way. He's currently staying at the RITZ CARLTON, here in NYC. Who decides?
Saleh was here for "medical reasons"! And now, clearly, is having a wonderful rest and recovery on the TAXPAYERS' DIME most likely!
