A Marine veteran who supports Scott Walker in Wisconsin decided to peaceably assemble at the gathering for his opponent. The rally for Tom Barrett featured guest speaker Bill Clinton. The video opens with a cop making his way through the crowd and approaching the Marine from behind. The cop, no doubt a union thug, grabs the Marine’s jacket collar and tells him he is going to get his ass kicked (It is possible he said are you trying to get your ass kicked).
The first question I have is why would that happen? Are not the police there to keep the peace?
Then the Marine tells another officer that he has a right to be there and that he (the officer) took an oath and that that man (he points to the cop) will not put his hands on me again. As he is gesturing a cop walks up to his finger (he was pointing) and tells him that he will be in trouble if he does not keep his hand out of the cops face.
The Marine is then forced to another location and told to stay there. When he says he has does not have to stay in one spot and has as much right as all the other people (who he gestures toward) he is arrested.
This Marine was not threatening anyone and was being peaceful. He was accosted by the union thug cops who assaulted him and he was arrested for no cause.
Where were these cops when the liberals in Wisconsin were storming the government buildings and defacing them during the budget debates last year? Where were these cops when people occupied those buildings and refused to leave? Where were these cops when those folks were relieving themselves on the floors and destroying public property?
It would seem as if the cops are more than happy to go after people who do not break the law while ignoring those who do based solely on which politician they support.
I hope this Marine sues the police and those cops in particular and gets enough money to live very comfortably.
More importantly I hope these alleged peace officers are all fired and LOSE their pensions.
Never surrender, never submit.

The US Government used bailout money to help General Motors and other auto companies. The stated goal was to rescue companies that are too big to fail but the reality is that the government used the money to pay off union backers while screwing over investors. We were told that a profit would be turned and that we should not worry because they are the government and they are there to help.
Looks like the estimate of making money is turning out to be a lie told to us by politicians hell bent on robbing us blind. It is not a lie to those of us who said it would not happen and to those of us who realized the lies the auto companies told when they said they paid back the money. They took stimulus money to pay back the loans…
The estimated losses in the auto bailout have risen to 23.6 BILLION dollars, 9 BILLION more than the last estimate because GM stock is not doing well.
The government has expressed its position in this way:
In its monthly report to Congress, the Treasury Department now says it expects to lose $23.6 billion, up from its previous estimate of $14.33 billion. Detroit News
Herein lies the problem. The Treasury is not going to lose any money. Let me express the sentence so it has the truth; In its monthly report to Congress, the Treasury Department now says it expects TAXPAYERS to lose $23.6 billion, up from its previous estimate of $14.33 billion.
Government seems to forget whose money this is. The money that was spent to bailout the unions and the union workers came from taxpayers. All money that government spends comes from some other entity (most of it through taxes) which means the Treasury (as is true with all government agencies) cannot lose money. All it can do is lose money that belongs to the taxpayer.
I did not agree with the Wall Street bailouts but at least those folks paid the money back (some after being FORCED to take the money in the first place). If those Occupy morons want to protest they should be marching at GM and at the union shops.
Of course they should also be protesting in DC.
We have to call these people on this kind of stuff. This has been going on for far too long in that the government acts as if it spends and loses its own money when it is in fact spending, wasting, and losing OUR money.
Never surrender, never submit.

A few years ago the DHS and Big Sis released their report on potential threats here in the US. Conservative right wing folks were labeled as potential home grown terrorists along with TEA Party members and folks who are opposed to abortion. Yes, Big Sis and the government were worried and they wanted everyone to know that the right was dangerous and that law enforcement across the country should be on alert for these radical right wing madmen.
The report was full of BS and was politically motivated in an attempt to paint the right as radical so as to push the left’s agenda. In all the time since this report was released, no member of the TEA Party has committed a crime while involved in TEA Party protests. There are not large numbers of right wing folks out causing trouble, damaging property, raping women, selling and using drugs or committing any acts of terror whatsoever. That makes no difference because the left has made up its mind. The facts have never gotten in the way of their agenda.
The real terrorists in this country have been the Occupy terrorists. These people have committed the crimes that Big Sis and her DHS said the right would commit. The Occupy folks are out rioting. They are burning things. They are attacking the police and they are disobeying the laws.
In addition, the terrorists in the labor unions are involving themselves in the issues and they are calling for terrorist acts to be committed. Leo Gerard, president of United Steelworkers international has stated that the movement needs more militancy. Gerard, a moron union thug (and terrorist, Big Sis), said that if the Occupy Wall Street movement does not convey the message (if Wall Street does not get it) then a resistance movement is needed that involves more militancy. He thinks people should be blocking bridges and doing “that kind of stuff.” I see this as a call to the union thugs to cause civil disturbance through militant acts. Gerard is calling for militant acts, acts that are combative and aggressive, by definition.
In other words, Gerard is calling for terror. Where is the DHS report labeling the Occupy folks and the labor unions a threat to this nation? Where is the report that labels these people the same way the right wing was labeled? Where is the nationwide alert for law enforcement?
These people are actual threats to this country. They are a threat to other people. They are a threat to our system. They are actual threats that are not labeled as such by Big Sis and her DHS. In fact, the Democrats have praised the Occupy folks and have declared their support for them. Democrats are in support of people committing acts of terror and are proud of that support. The report from Big Sis on the potential for right wing violence is unfounded and has never come to fruition. The left is out terrorizing and Big Sis ignores it.
The left is trying to cause riots. Obama is in favor of rioting. He was a community rabble-rouser and he is a student of Saul Alinsky. The ends justify the means and the left wants riots to get its way. The sock puppets on the left who are easily led are obliging the masters at the top by rioting and Gerard is calling for combative and aggressive acts in order to get things done.
Could someone point out a riot or anything similar to the Occupy movement from the right?
Gerard, if you want combative and aggressive acts you go right ahead. Don’t be surprised when you get driven over by someone fed up with your antics (I want Gerard to block a bridge I am trying to cross).
I guess it would be wise to understand that militancy can go both ways and your right to protest ends when you infringe upon the rights of others.
Or as someone once told me, be careful what you ask for.
Funny thing though. If a right wing person discusses watering the tree of liberty or taking back the country the liberals get their pink panties in a wad and scream about how radical they are and then somehow end up calling it racism because a black guy is occupying the White House.
Let some whack job union thug scream for militancy and the left is in love with him.
Three words folks;
Bring it on…
Never surrender, never submit.

This past week I discussed the irregularities at the Nevada polls and how SEIU technicians were responsible for the voting machines. The powers that be assured us that even though the machines were registering more votes than cast, it was nothing to worry about and the results of an inquiry would be made available after the election.
It is after the election and Harry Reid won. Reid picked up 8% to win which is a huge pick-up. He was down by an average of 3% to his opponent and he won by 5%. That 8% swing is unreal and since incumbents who poll under 50% usually do not win, something seems amiss.
Reid and his goons were twisting arms yesterday and had the casino mobsters going over lists of employees who had not voted and instructing bosses to get on those folks and make them vote. One has to wonder what kind of shenanigans took place in this election.
Nevada has the highest unemployment rate in the country even though Harry Reid, by his own account, saved the world from collapse.
It seems he was unable to save Nevada but some mysterious folks in Nevada saved him. Something hinky took place.
Well, like the other relics in Congress, Reid has been around a long time and is pretty advanced in age. Maybe he will join Kennedy and Byrd soon and we can be rid of him.
I bet there are a lot of Democrats right now who wish they had ignored Reid, Pelosi and Obama.
I also wish I owned a moving company in DC. Looks like a lot of people will be packing up and moving after the TEANAMI in the House last night.
As an aside, Kith Olbermann was railing about Tea Party candidates and saying that Palin’s picks did not do so well (he is intimidated by women, especially strong ones). He failed to mention how many people Obama campaigned for, and on more than one occasion, lost last night. Those Obama went to help did not fair so well. MSNBC, Lean Forward and take it like a man…

August was a stressful month for members of Congress as they had to go home and face their constituents. They did not want to face them because a large number of them do not want government run health care and they do not want the government to completely overhaul the health care system. Most people want the problems with the system to be addressed while leaving those things that work, alone. Anti capitalists want the government to run the whole shebang and drive private insurance companies out of business.
Speaking of anti capitalist, and completely off topic, Michael Moore has a new movie out that is against capitalism. He claims that it is bad, causes people to be poor and is evil (and has members of the clergy agree with him). Isn’t it rather funny that this moron, who makes his fortune off capitalism, has a movie against it? Michael Moore owns stocks in companies (including Halliburton) and he invests his money in order to make more money. Yet, this slob (who really should have been aborted) is railing against capitalism. The real way to have lots of poverty is to attempt to redistribute people’s money. Socialism is fun until you run out of someone else’s money. al Reuters
Back to the health care debate. The town hall meetings were pretty contentious. Yes people raised their voices and some of them became extremely vocal but they were not violent and for the most part, were respectful (at least they were as respectful as the person deserved). I cannot blame some folks for getting pretty peeved because their Senator or Representative lied to them or tried to blow smoke in a dark place. Frank Kratovil’s office told me he had not made up his mind and a few days later he was out hawking the Obama plan. Obviously, his office lied.
As people became more vocal members of Congress became more reclusive. Many of them did not hold town hall meetings and some, including Harry Reid, held events that were by invitation only and that cost money to get in. As things heated up, Barack Obama mobilized his army of thugs in the unions and in his other groups and asked them to get in the game and bust a few heads. Then, union thugs began taking up many of the seats at town hall meetings. They began harassing those who disagreed with the health care overhaul. Obama’s jack booted thugs became physical and tried to intimidate the opposition, Chicago style.
People were threatened, people were beaten and there was a lot of bad behavior. This was perpetrated by the thugs Obama mobilized to “get in our faces.”
Then a funny thing happened. People started bringing guns to these events. This was done in accordance with the law and no one broke any law whatsoever when carrying a weapon despite the panic of those on the left and in the media (but I repeat myself). Chris Matthews lost the tingle in his leg and became upset that someone would carry a gun to this kind of event. One media outlet cropped a video and made and issue of white people carrying guns to events now that we have a black man in the White House, you know racist Republicans and all that. Turns out the guy with the gun was black and the video was doctored to deliberately deceive the public. Propaganda from the media wing of the Democratic Party.
While all these bed wetters were crying about guns being carried at events they ignored the Obama thugs who had beaten people for opposing health care overhaul. Kenneth Gladney is a black man who was so severely beaten by Obama’s thugs that he had to use a wheelchair for a while after the beating. Where was Matthews and the rest of the media decrying this beating? They were nowhere to be found because Obama’s thugs were doing the beating. You can bet that if it had been a liberal black guy beaten by conservative whites the news would have played it 24/7.
After this beating people began carrying guns and there were relatively few incidents. John Hawkins at Town Hall has an article up with the 7 most embarrassing town hall moments for the Democrats. One of the items he writes about is the Gladney beating:
A black man [Gladney] at a political rally was assaulted by white thugs who used racial epithets. The man was beaten so badly that he was forced to use a wheelchair and the response from liberals was…well, we’re actually still waiting for a response. The conservative response was to start bringing guns to the town hall meetings. Since then, for the most part, the unions have decided to behave themselves. It’s just more proof than an armed society is a polite society.
The conservative response was to bring guns. Notice how the Obama union thugs did not beat anyone else after conservatives started bringing guns. I know the liberal bed wetters were all upset about the guns and how horrible it was but the reality is that people have a right to protect themselves and if Obama is going to send his goons out then people need to have protection. It was Obama who said if they bring a knife, we bring a gun and in that light I say if they send union thugs, we take a gun.
Remember, there were no other incidents of union thugs beating people up after conservatives started carrying guns. The thugs think twice about bullying people if there is actually a chance that there will be resistance.
There was however, an incident where a man lost his finger. A man who is opposed to government run health care got into a fight with a man who supports it and the deranged lunatic bit off the man’s little finger. There is no telling if the perpetrator was a union thug because he ran away but all indications are that he was some half baked liberal in the crowd of Move On supporters who did not like the fact that a citizen opposed the sainted one’s health care plans. The lunatic violated the personal space of William Rice who says he felt threatened and popped the guy in the nose. The fight ensued and Rice lost a finger (which could not be reattached) and the coward ran away.
If Rice had a gun strapped to his side it is doubtful the lunatic would have harassed him.
September is here and on Tuesday the Congress reconvenes after its month long recess. The recess was anything but the peaceful vacation they expected to have as in years past. This time they (those who actually ventured out in public) got an earful from constituents who know that it is unconstitutional for the government to get involved in health care and who know that any involvement by the government will be a disaster.
Government run Social Security is nearly out of money. Government run Medicare and Medicaid are broke and spending more than they take in. Government run programs are always over budget and poorly run and there is no reason to believe that the government can run health care any better than private companies could if they were unencumbered by ridiculous regulations and mandates that drive up the cost of the plans they offer.
Health care needs to be fixed but not in the way the Democrats want to “fix” it. They want to control your lives and taking over health care is the best way for them to do it.
If they get control of health care we will need to carry guns to the doctor in order to get properly treated…
Of course, gun control is also on their list. Though I think they should try union control instead.
