The "comprehensive" argument against Barack Obama 

Hot Air posts the "comprehensive" case against Barack Obama. Sadly, it is far from comprehensive. Among other omissions, it ignores the single most idiotic plank in his economic platform: "card check" unionization and other "reforms" designed to destroy the fluidity of the American labor market. Read the Heritage Foundation's critique of the "Employee Free Choice Act" -- an Orwellian title if there ever was one. In addition to depriving employees of their right to vote on whether to unionize, it gives the unions enormous leverage in negotiations over collective bargaining agreements. It is hard to imagine a more efficient way to drive "good jobs" off shore.

Fortunately for Mexicans, Chinese, Pakistanis, and even some Europeans, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid all support this law. It is rare that all these countries get so much support from American politicians, even Democrats.

If you run a business with more than a very few employees, if Barack Obama wins your life is going to get much more complicated long about March next year.

One other big story that vanished is this one


Obama is in bed with the slimyst aspect of the Unions, and he'll be terrible for this country.

Conspicuously absent from the roundup is consideration of the SCOTUS appointments, and sovereignty issues surrounding the UNLOSC.

I'd like to suggest that, if Hussein wins, a million or more of us who still subscribe to newspapers, drop our subscriptions in protest of their efforts to elect Hussein.
Sure, there will be a bailout of the media, there will will a bailout of any industry where unions loyal to Obama get their money back, so the economic impact would be minimal.
But, we will have to enjoy minor efforts while we can. Once Ayers and his brown shirts take over, we will be in deep trouble!

I'd the apparent illegal campaign (both foreign and domestic) dollars he's getting to the list of reasons not to vote for Obama.

Actually, the pain for employees has srated already and will ramp after the election -- if Obama wins. Authorization cards are good for a year, so authorization cards signed now will count toward the "card check" even if they were signed before the law is passed (cards are good for a year). The law is broad, has no regs, and as troubling as the "card check" aspect is, the collective bargaining aspect is more favorable for employees than in Europe -- here, third parties with no knowledge or interest in your business could decide your wages, benefits and other work rules.

Unclear whether it will pass as written or whether "blue dogs" in both houses will push to make it less onerous than it is now. Make no mistake, though, this bill is at the top of the Democrats' agenda.

Companies need to think this through now.

It's a great article, but it does leave a lot out and the focus is off. The two things any person would need to know before they vote for Obama is that 1) he got himself elected in Illinois by promising to cut taxes for the middle class, which turned out to be an empty political ploy, just like it is now; and 2) this guy is comfortable around every kind of anti-American radical, and they are all comfortable around him: The Friends and Associates of Barack Obama. This is not the kind of person we want in charge of our armed forces, our intelligence secrets, our diplomatic efforts... I don't understand why he is even being considered. Wait, yes I do. It's because he has the media's complicity in concealing the entirety of his past from the public while he takes the presidency of our country. Nice.

The Republican Party is just a bunch of white racists. It is filled with a bunch of Angry White Guys (and Gals) who think the 1965 Hart-Celler Immigration Act ruined America because it made it a lot harder for whites from Ireland, England, France, Germany, Italy, etc. to immigrate to the U.S. and made it a lot easier for the Chinese, Indians, Jamaicans, Mexicans, Egyptians, etc. to immigrate to the U.S. What these racists don't GET is that the 1965 Hart-Celler Immigration Act (Thank You Senator Ted Kennedy) greatly increased Diversity in the U.S. which has made OUR Nation stronger and a much more multicultural place to live. Before 1965 Whites of European descent made up 88% of the U.S. population. Now whites only make up 65% of the U.S. population and by 2042 they will only make up 49% of the population. By 2100 Whites of European descent will only make up about 30% of the U.S. population and also by the year 2100 only 3% of the World Population will be White. The 2008 Election is just a turning point in American History though. By the end of this century white Europeans will be out of power (FINALLY!). The World is Flat. The white racist Republicans just don't seem to get it!

What will happen to Walmart if they are successful at defeating the secret ballot. Walmart gave millions of low income families the opportunity to buy items once only available to middle and upper income families. Say good bye to Walmart and low cost groceries.

"Before 1965 Whites of European descent made up 88% of the U.S. population."

Oh here we go with the racism! They always do this, accuse the 'right' of racism and then go off on a racist screed.
Sure, white people are going to die off, keep telling people that and then wonder why they would want to contain you, as they have been doing so for a long time. One election? Good for your sorry brown ass. Don't think there will be a backlash?

Or perhaps you crave a life more like how they live in Zimbabwe? That could, and will happen to you once us evil ol' white folks are gone, rest assured.
