Last night over dinner I heard a right wing wag promise "never again to use the word 'stimulus.'" I thought of that when I saw these pictures of anti-freebie protests around the country.
At least these protesters have a sense of humor. I so much prefer wit against the machine than to rage.
Let's start a pool. I believe things will get very much worse and the ultra-leftists have no tolerance for criticism. Therefore, I believe that there will come a time, maybe, after the first attack, when good natured opposition, such a shown, will not be tolerated and that those who do demonstrate, good natured or otherwise, will be arrested and/or penalized for either "hate" crime (it'll be "racist" to criticize or poke fun at a minority federal officer) or a new law that prevents disrespect to a federal officer.
The first demonstrations will be broken up by surrogates, i.e., union thugs appearing to act on their own.
When (pool issue) will the first public demonstration against a policy of President Obama or the man, himself, be broken up or prevented by official law enforcement officers or members of a domestic paramilitary organization establish by the federal government?
I think we need to revolt against all the millionaire politicians in DC.
Let me see if I can come up with a few names here:
Jane Harman D Ca 397 million
Nancy Pelosi D Ca 62 million
Herb Kohl D Wis 200 million
John Kerry D Ma 336 million
Mark Warner D Va 237 million
Jared Polis D Co 200 million
Jay Rockefeller D WVa 93 million
Diane Feinstein D Ca 84 million
Frank Lautenberg D NJ 90 million
Ted Kennedy D Ma 93 million
Hillary Clinton 35 million
Obviously these guys are looking out for their personal net worth. Blind trusts are a lot of hooey.
It gets more entertaining every day. Ray the Hood proposed today that the Feds should install GPS devices in every car, monitor citizen movements, and tax travel. There has to be a better way to get Daschle to pay his taxes.
