Labor Day Redux: Union Thugs Respond

I’ve come under some fire from a few union lackeys over my Labor Day post — teamsters who have contacted me to tell me how misguided my closing lines actually are.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt And Barack Obama

Franklin Delano Roosevelt is, along with Abraham Lincoln, one of Barack Obama’s heroes, as Barack Obama is among the first to point out.
