  • Buffet Opposes Card Check

    Warren Buffet is a known supporter of the Death Tax, a long-time Democrat, was an unofficial adviser on economic policy to President Obama during the 2008 campaign and he recently served on the President’s  Economic Advisory Board during the transition between presidential administrations. Oh, and he revealed this morning that he also opposes ending secret ballots for union organizing elections:

    As scholars here at Heritage have chronicled, the bill has been a top priority of Big Labor for years.  The bill’s intent is to strip away worker’s ability to have secret ballot elections for the purpose of deciding whether to organize a labor union or not.

    “I think the secret ballot’s pretty important in the country,” said Buffet. “I’m against card check to make a perfectly flat statement.”

      Buffet is right.

      Independence is priceless.

      The saying goes,….DON'T TREAD ON ME.

      At what time do the American people stand up and say ENOUGH !!!

      Hopefully soon.

      Warren Buffet begs the question: How many democrats completely disagree with everything their party supports, but yet still vote for democrat candidates?

      If 'card-check' is not killed now, we will have sold our souls…and we'll never get them back. We are all doomed in everything we attempt in the future unless we kill this union's attempt to control every aspect of our lives. Stop their quest for power over you and all your children.

      Call your congressman and pray to God for help to

      defeat the louts who want to take your kids, or raise your right hand 110 degrees and shout,"HEIL"!

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
