Look Who’s Protesting

October 14, 2011 by  

Unions support the Occupy Wall Street movement. A new group has joined what The Wall Street Journal’s James Taranto called “superannuated hippies, dopey college kids, and fatuous liberals” demonstrating against Wall Street: thousands of union members. And guess what? It turns out the labor groups all have something in common: “They all include members who work for the government or, in the case of the UAW, for corporate welfare cases.” Surprise, surprise.

A tiny step forward for Saudi women. Last month, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia granted women the right to vote in the next elections, which won’t take place until 2015. In the meantime, women are still forbidden to drive in the country or to appear in public without a male chaperone.

That wasn’t true either. A new book about Barack Obama’s mother says that his often-told story of how she died while worrying whether health insurance would cover her medical bills simply isn’t true. According to A Singular Woman: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mother by Janny Scott, Ann Dunham’s cancer treatments were covered by her employer’s health insurance, “minus the deductible and any uncovered expenses.”

Someone made a big mistake. Did you know that religious leaders of all faiths were deliberately excluded from the 10th anniversary memorial service where the Twin Towers used to stand? Former New York Deputy Mayor Rudy Washington said: “This is America, and to have a memorial service where there’s no prayer, this appears to be insanity to me. I feel like America has lost its way.” Maybe not America, Rudy, but some of our so-called leaders certainly have.

    This Sat is the date that the “useful idiots” at the occupy protests have chosen to attack Phx, and although I agree with much of what the protestors are saying concerning Wall Street, banks, and Big Pharma, you will not see me there on the side of the protestors.
    I refuse to support an event that has been coopted by the Communists, Anarchists, and other big-gov’t, nanny-state promoters!
    Any group which shows up there, supports the efforts of those other anti-American groups which DO NOT have the best interests of this country in mind!

    Well, there’s been aggressive response against the protesters from the word “get-go”, repugs of course being the first since it was directed at their lords and masters, and the dems of course siding on the protester’s complaints in that America “IS” fed up with Wall Street manipulations, tired of lame duck government and etc.

    Who would I side with, well, that’s self-explanatory.

    crticize theri lack of direction or management, understandable. Put them down as a bunch of misfits and malcontents? Well, just proves who you side with and to what end.

    At least they are actively protesting the rape of our nation rather than sitting on their fat asses at a computer desk, disrespecting others that take a stand for a better world.

    Well that didn’t fly very far Chip.

    “Ann Dunham’s cancer treatments were covered by her employer’s health insurance, “minus the deductible and any uncovered expenses.””

    and these are things no one should worry about?

    I smell a lot of anal retention in such a book.

    Hmm? What would be the intentions of such a book?

    “It turns out the labor groups all have something in common: “They all include members who work for the government or, in the case of the UAW, for corporate welfare cases.” Surprise, surprise.”

    and so that means what? They should not be concerned with the House of Wagers and Cronnie Capitalism?

    “This is America, and to have a memorial service where there’s no prayer, this appears to be insanity to me. I feel like America has lost its way.” Maybe not America, Rudy, but some of our so-called leaders certainly have.”

    So the correction is mandated prayer for everyone!

    The corporate welfare cases are THE TARGET of the protesters. Pay attention.
