In the past week, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has taken actions aimed at forcing unionization on the nation’s private sector. In one action, the NLRB decided to sue the states of South Carolina and South Dakota because their voters had the audacity to protect their citizen’s right to a secret ballot vote in a union election. The second NLRB action is all the more outrageous as they are seeking to keep Boeing Corporation from building airplanes in South Carolina rather than in Washington state because SC isn’t union-friendly
I shop at Wal-Mart at least once a week. I love Wal-Mart. But there is a nationwide war against Wal-Mart, and some of the more reasonable complaints one might have about Wal-Mart usually aren’t anywhere near the top of the list of reasons for this war.

Something happened after World War II, and mature Americans stopped holding the line on morality and responsibility. Since then, America has reaped successively worse and worse generations of immaturity and irresponsibility to the point where we see tantrums displayed like those in Wisconsin and now in Arizona. This is what happens when you let spoiled children have their way too long, as we have done with liberals in America. Restoring the American way of life won’t be pretty, but unless we want to allow the American experiment, this great gift from God to slide into the darkness of history, we must roll up our sleeves and fix it.
