Occupy will be a major event this spring. I predict it being important in the election as well. Here’s hoping that it turns positive.
Wonderful article! Best part is the comments.
why shouldn’t a Muslim say Muslim prayers…?
Why should anyone think that exposing the Obamas as race pimps is news?
Derrick Bell was a genius. The only way to address historical racism was to hire him, give him tenure and make him Dean.
We are on our way to becoming a dominated people by the two groups that hate us the most. Blacks and Muslims are offended at almost everything we stand for. They complain and we give in to their one sided demands without a fight. Oh, you can throw the Mexicans into that group too. Look at how our schools treat them by allowing them to celebrate a Mexican national holiday and they are US citizens! They even allow them to fly the Mexican flag at US public schools!This is what PC and liberals have done to our great nation.
his is really the first time in my life that I can say I’m glad I won’t be here in 20 years. Our country is going fast. If Obama gets reelected, it will be gone.
It’s time to mass email, link, tweet, BBs, text, whatever – these materials to everyone you know. Right, left, center, it doesn’t matter. This cretin must not be allowed to keep this office.
Keep it going, don’t let up. I am not standing by while our republic is torn down by a child of Marx. I’ve had enough and I hope you have too.
And hopefully, we can take back our schools and the administrative areas where these insane rules come from and start the process of destroying the Marxist school of thought as the disease it is.
Trouble is getting the drug addled minds of the voting left to understand a shred of what we know and understand about this marxist is like pushing a rope uphill.
It is no small wonder why Barack Obama plays the race card every opportunity that presents itself. He has his wife behind him as she learned in college to push her weight around, even then!
Could it be that qualified blacks prefer to make MORE MONEY in the private sector? Line up the applications and see if they were overlooked.
We’ve known all along that Michelle Obama is an agitator who hates this country. The tape merely verifies it. It’s time to kick that pair of racist socialists out of our white house.
This site will be a good way to do longform commentary. I have some ideas, but for now I am going to start with an article in today’s Star-Tribune titled “‘Right to Work’ push appears stranded in the legislature.” This concerns the hideous piece of legislation with the Orwellian name “right to Work” which is a euphemism for union-busting. It was an attempt by the GOP membership of the legislature to end-run around Dayton to put a constitutional amendment on the ballot this fall that would be asking the voters in essence if they are in favor of the right to work.
Of course, who would be opposed? In fact the actual language of Senator Thompson’s amendment would read “Shall the Minnesota Constitution be amended to guarantee all citizens the individual freedom to decide to join or not join a labor union, and to pay or not pay dues to a labor union?” Who is against the freedom to decide? Who is against the right to join or not join a Union? Who is opposed to choosing to pay dues or not? But of course the effect is that unions cannot collect dues, that the Union must allow members to re-elect membership each year and unions must eliminate the “fair share membership.” In essence, it busts the unions ability to organize and to represent a class of worker. It eliminates the power to organize and destroys the union. I can go on about why this amendment was proposed. I can speculate about Senator Thompson’s motivations. But I would rather hear from the educated citizenry of Minnesota about the bill. The following set of gemstones were mined from the comment section:
Macmac writes: “So you rubes would rather that the Unions continue to push and push companies out of profitability until they are forced to go over seas. It is all about your wants vs the needs of the company. Your pathetic and a parasite on our great nation. Try standing on your own two feet for once.”
Tommyguy says: “I will continue to not support any unions. I make my purchase choices accordingly. I detest union slugs.
Joednador says: “he left always proclaims freedom of choice, but are opposed to people being able to chose if they want to be forced to pay a union or not in order to work in a job that they want.”
Jstanbinaour says: “All one has to do is read the comments on this story to see the thinly veiled threats of violence and intimidation from those opposed to workers freedom. It appears one side does want to control the free will of the people. It is not the side that is traditionally painted in that light by the media.”
bpasquar says: “s a current union member, I have a big problem with not having a say in what my union spends money(our dues) on or who they contribute money to. I like this bill specifically because of how I feel in the forementioned sentence. If I can’t have a say in those expenditures/donations, I would more than likely elect to NOT pay any union dues. Please pass the bill!”
garygls says: “Heaven forbid we would get the freedom of choice in America.”
polaricecap says: “. Trying to return to the “good old days” and implement greater unionization in the U.S. is not effective because our operating costs are already too high. Sorry for the bad news. Complaining about the “1%’ers, Wall Street, greedy CEO’s or Korporate Amerika” are only excuses for not recognizing the global context.”
grjannsen says: ” Judging by the comments & counter-comments on this forum, I would judge the union members, families & friends have set up boiler rooms to address & vote on, contrary comments. There cannot be that many Minnesotans who believe unions & union states are prospering, loosing fewer business’s overseas and holding down taxes than are the right to work states. People, think Dakotas amongst many others!”
bwik takes another tact: “Mommy, what was a union?” “Well dear, once upon a time, you could not get a job unless you made friends with these very very special men, like a magical king. They were called mafia men.” “Tell me more, mommy!” “Okay. Once these mafia men gave you a job, you had to pay them part of your salary.” “Wow mommy! It sounds so helpful! You give the king some money and he helps you! What happened to the people who used to work there before? “Those people were laid off due to high wages. Then the bank took their homes.” “What happened to the people who wanted to get a job?” “The union only protected its own, so those people were outraged, and there was a revolution, honey.” “What happened to the people who used to own the factory, mommy?” “Oh honey, you’re not old enough to hear about that…”
