Yet again an Associated Press story is the muse fo a Parsimony post.Â Â I donâ€™t seek out AP stories, but it often seems like their reporting often shows the bias of the mainstream media.

â€¦Now the story
INDIANAPOLIS – After losing their fight against right-to-work legislation, labor organizers are making a desperate bid on shop room floors and at union halls to persuade members to keep paying their union dues and avoid crippling labor’s influence in Indiana [and all across the country although that has been the trend for more than a decade with decreasing membership in the private sector].
Aging hippies from the sixties cannot get enough protesting as they fight to maintain their anti-establishment credibility.Â Many of these folks, now over the trusting age of 30, are in positions of power or as they would have said decades ago, part of the establishment.Â Their righteous tactics to stop a war has turned into a methodology to gain more power and intimidate their targets.Â No group may be worse that Obama’s friends at the Service Employees International Union (“SEIU”).
The 24-hour news cycle is buzzing about the G20 summit hosted by the citizens of the Greater Pittsburgh area and the speeches earlier in the week by numerous world leaders (and I HATE to call most of them leaders) at the United Nations.Â It was the usual bunch of blowhards, thugs, and apologists making claims and promising changes that will never happen.Â One of the most frightening things suggested is “a new world order” giving even more power to the various un-elected dictators (and many who were “elected”) who rule with an iron fist.
