"THE AXIS FOR TAXES" EXPOSED: MORE PROOF THAT THE DEMOCRAT PARTY IS A FRONT FOR THE BIG UNIONS WHICH GET PAID BY THE STATE

I posted on this a while back - how the country can be divided into tax-payers and tax-getters, with the biggest remaining unions - the SEIU, the NEA and AFSCME - all being tax-getters. I coined the term AXIS FOR TAXES to describe their COZY relationship.

You are my sunshine - After overcoming a lawsuit, the Department of Labor forced unions to reveal where their member dues are going. As Opinion Journal reported today, the National Education Association gave $65 million to left-liberal groups to defeat voucher programs, charter schools, and Social Security reform.
The list of THE UNION'S goals reads just like a list of DNC goals - or, as the WSJ Op-ed goes on to say: "It's well understood that the NEA is an arm of the Democratic National Committee. (Or is it the other way around?)" RTWT! NOW!

Thanks to the Bush Administration, unions are NOW REQUIRED to disclose how they spend the dues of their hard-working members. So now EVERYONE will be better able to see how the AXIS FOR TAXES works. And WHO the Democrat Party REALLY works for.

off topic, but what if Able Danger actually was the reason the White House used to start the NSA wiretapping? Wouldnt it then make sense why they didnt want to publicize the findings?

i think that the nsa intercept program was targeted and legal and constitutional.

able danger was data mining. the nsa program was not.

data mining is legal and requires no warrants. no personal data is used.

who called who when - and not content of calls - is not personal data.

the nsa program listened to content.

BTW: the NYTIMES piece today revealed a letter from pelosi which expressed concerns abiout the nsa's own program which hayden stepped up right after 9/11 based on his own authority and BEFORE he got a presidential executive order.

it is clear that pelosi thought that a presidential order was all that was lacking.


bush took care of that. ergo: pelosi must believe that the nsa intercept program was subsequently legal and constitutional. (this happened only weeks after hayden had intitiated a similar plan on his own. BTW: the nsa can intercept whatever it wants whenver it wants plegally and constitutionally according to FISa if they intercept it FROM overseas. and they may have been doing it this way. the presidential order may have been a merely a safeguard and slight expanison of their capability.)
