Steve Peters Commentary - #2925 - NLRB Admits Boeing Complaint Applies to Every Business - Townhall (2) Obamacare Repeal Means Waivers for Everybody - Washington Examiner (3) How Snake Oil Got a Bad Rap - Daily Weekly

The National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) decision to issue a complaint regarding the Boeing facility in South Carolina is a poorly veiled act of revenge against a company that refused to let Big Labor bosses decide its future. As seemingly ridiculous and unbelievable as the attack on the part of the U.S. Government against an American corporation seeking to create jobs at home is, the consequences that this precedent sets for businesses and their right to work is downright dangerous. But the true damage of this political power play on behalf of Big Labor and against Boeing and South Carolinagoes much farther....... An NLRB spokesperson recently stated, “The effect would have been the same if the line had been moved to a nonunion facility in any state.” This is a more straightforward way of saying that the NLRB can tell any business anywhere in our nation and at any time where it can and can not go. This incredible overreach by a little known agency owned by labor bosses seeking “payback” having expended nearly half a billion dollars electing President Obama is simply shocking. The NLRB is clearly saying their complaint against Boeing applies to every company and state in the union. It also effectively outlaws businesses from moving into any of America’s 22 right-to-work states if a union boss takes issue with their decision.  Read more...... SP: Obama's payback to the unions are devastating the American economy and causing great pains on main street working class families. One of our key strengths has been that up until now we were a nation under the rule of law, not men. If we continue to let Obama rule otherwise, companies will just move more of their operations/ jobs offshore and out of his reach. Unless we want America's economy to look like Detroit's, we must stop these taxpayer funded paybacks to the unions.

Obamacare Repeal Means Waivers for Everybody - Washington Examiner - Can't we all just get a waiver from Obamacare? Unfortunately not, but the list of people applying is getting longer by the day.  There are now 1,372 companies, labor unions and states that have applied for and been granted waivers from an early provision of the law that says health policies must provide at least $750,000 a year in insurance protection.  In the latest batch of waivers, one in five went to expensive restaurants, spas and other businesses in former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's district in San Francisco. What a coincidence!  Nearly two dozen states have either applied for or have been granted waivers from an Obamacare provision that forces health insurers operating in their states to comply with strict federal limits governing how much they can spend on administrative costs versus reimbursements for medical bills.  Read more.......  

How Snake Oil Got a Bad Rap - Daily Weekly - These days, “snake oil” is synonymous with quackery, the phoniest of phony medicines. A “snake oil salesman” promises you the world, takes your money, and is long gone by the time you realize the product in your hands is completely worthless.But get this: The original snake oil actually worked. Save this one for the next cocktail party; it will blow your friends’ minds. In the 1860s, Chinese laborers immigrated to the United States to work on the Transcontinental Railroad. At night, they would rub their sore, tired muscles with ointment made from Chinese water snake (Enhydris chinensis), an ancient Chinese remedy they shared with their American co-workers.  Read more....... SP:I will occasionally do a true off the wall story and refer to it as a CLIFF NOTE, in Honor of Cliff Clavin, the postman from the Cheers TV Series. This is the first CLIFF NOTE. Enjoy your week, fellow conservatives.
