What is meant by the dignity of labor? Why is industriousness considered a virtue? Why do presidents and popes say labor has priority over capital?  Some thoughts to ponder this Labor Day. 


Republican Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma says Obama’s extreme actions have brought him “perilously close to impeachment”. Coburn didn’t detail the legal ‘high crimes and misdemeanors” but cited abuse of power and incompetence.  Guest editorialist Ken Davis says the administration's global trade policy - and TPP in particular - qualify as abuse of power and incompetence.


Members of Congress are back in their home districts for the the next two weeks.  Many are holding town hall meetings and other events to meet with We, the People.  


This is our opportunity to let them know how we feel about a critical issue affecting our sovereignty, jobs and Constitution: Fast Track.


Are you wondering where all the good jobs have gone? Why do we have less tax revenues creating an out-of-control Federal budget deficit? Why are you working harder for less money than you did in the 1990s?  Michele Nash-Hoff has the answers.



The “Buy American” movement has little resonance with young car-buying Americans, who are most likely to consider their vehicle to be a reflection of their personality than any other age group and least likely to lend importance to the “Assembled in America” label when purchasing a car, according to a new Autotrader.com study.

Obviously, free trade makes for interesting political bedfellows. GOP Reps. Michele Bachmann and Walter Jones have joined together with liberal Democrat Rep. Rosa DeLauro to try to limit the White House's so-called authority to "fast-track" global trade treaties, a process that essentially rams pacts through the U.S. Congress on an up-or-down vote. No amendments, no nothing.


So what if Americans don't smoke as much as they once didt, the Marlboro Man will have something to cheer, if his handlers get their way at the Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade table. Tariffs currently imposed by developing TPP countries stand to fall to nothing, putting U.S. tobacco producers in an opportune position to inundate them with inexpensive cigarettes and an epidemic of smoking-related health woes.


When President Barack Obama recently asserted that the nation now sold more Made-in-America products worldwide than ever before, his words rung true technically but don’t let him fool you into believing that we’re out of the trade deficit woods just yet.


Members of Congress are back in their home districts for the month of August and many are holding town hall meetings and other events to meet with We, the People.
