“For a century or so, guided by brilliant private sector leadership, California was a beacon to the world, a land of opportunity such as never had existed in human history. Unimaginable wealth was created. Yet it required only 40 years of liberal governance to bring the whole thing crashing down. Today, California is the most spectacular failure of our time. Its government is broke. Productive citizens have been fleeing for some years now, selling their homes at inflated prices (until recently) and moving to Colorado, Arizona, Texas and even Minnesota, like one of my neighbors. The results of California’s improvident liberalism have been tragically easy to predict: absurd public sector wage and benefit packages, a declining tax base, surging welfare enrollment, falling economic production, ever-increasing deficits. Soon, California politicians will be looking to less glamorous states for bailout money. Things have now devolved to the point where California leads the nation in poverty.”

“If you can’t agree that we progressives are in favor of free speech, we’ll send the Speedway Bomber to sue you into silence.”
Just in case you were not up to speed on the latest on the so called “Occupy” movement, here is a roundup.
2 deaths at Occupy protests in California and Vermont. One looks like murder and the other is being considered a suicide.
With little sleep in cold conditions, cigarettes and drinks being passed from mouth to mouth, and few opportunities to wash hands, Zuccotti Park may now just be the best place to catch respiratory viruses, norovirus (also known as the winter vomiting virus) and tuberculosis, according to one doctor.
The damp clothing and cardboard signs wet with rain are also breeding grounds for mold. Some protesters are urinating in bottles and leaving food trash discarded throughout the campground, providing further opportunities for nastiness.
“Pretty much everything here is a good way to get sick,” Salvatore Cipolla, 23, from Long Island, told the Times. “It’ll definitely thin the herd.”
Some protesters have refused free flu shots, citing a “government conspiracy,” the Times said.
“One Percenter” J-Zay selling “occupy” themed t-shirts and is keeping all the profits. Yes, he is playing those idiots for suckers while claiming to “support” them. Lenin had it right. They are “useful idiots.”
Just a few items that probably aren’t leading on the nightly news:

A member of the US Coast Guard went a bit too close to the far left extremist, strike that, I mean “open minded and tolerant” “Occupy” crowd in Boston yesterday.
They thanked the servicewoman for her service in the following fashion:
The Coast Guard in Boston confirmed that a woman in uniform was harassed and spat upon near Occupy Boston protesters.
The woman was walking to the train and said protesters spit on her twice, called her foul names and even threw a water bottle at her.
Can’t say I’m surprised.
Hold on a moment…was that a plastic water bottle thrown at the member of the US Coast Guard? Was wasn’t the thrower turned in for crimes against Gaea?
Oh well, just another data point to prove that there is nothing quite as intolerant and closed minded as an “open minded and tolerant liberal.”
By way of JammieWearingFool comes this photo that tells you everything you need to know about the so-called “Occupy movement”:
Yup, that is one of the “socially conscious”, open minded and tolerant liberal protesters literally shitting a New York City Police Car.
It seems that democrats are always trying an end run around democracy and the US Constitution whenever the American people wake up to their far left extremist agenda.
Here are two recent examples:
North Carolina Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue recommends suspending Congressional elections for the next couple of years. She argues that by taking the “pressure” of re-election off members of Congress will allow them to focus on the economy. This moonbat misses the entire point of holding the entire house and a third of the Senate accountable to the American people every two years! Perhaps she does understand that and is lying in order to promote her party’s extremist agenda. Either one is not good for the American people.
President Obama’s former budget director, Peter Orszag writes in the far left “New Republic” that “we need to counter the gridlock of our political institutions by making them a bit less democratic.” Really? Democrats didn’t mind gridlock when they were the “Party of No”, blocking the agenda of a Republican president. How about a dose of reality in translating Mr. Orszag’s whining…Our Dear Leader‘s far left extremist policies are extremely unpopular with the American people (see the 2010 mid-term elections), so we need to suspend that pesky Constitution thing in order to ram our vision of a socialist utopia down the throats of the people who are going to suffer the most at its enactment.
Expect a MSM/DNC blackout on a democrat Governor calling for the suspension of elections also.

“The thing the most bone chilling thing Bill Ayers said to me was that after the revolution succeeded and the government was overthrown, they believed they would have to eliminate 25 million Americans who would not conform to the new order.”
— Larry Grathwohl, an undercover FBI agent who infiltrated The Weather Underground
Anti-gun activists have much in common with the original Luddites. They blame new technologies and users of those technologies for their own plight, and aren’t above using violence to achieve their goals. Luddites did their own killing, whereas “anti-gunners” — more “anti personal guns for ordinary people” in truth — try to use the ATF and other government agencies as their cat’s paw.
The rallying cry of the anti-gun bigots is usually “for reasonable gun control!” They claim that old, simple guns are just fine, it’s the new and extra deadly weapons and ammunition that are the evil incarnate.
Ya, ya…a DNC rep not including the actual truth in a public statement is a ‘dog bites man’ story, but democrat Rep. Wasserman-Schultz takes her job above and beyond the realm of normal DNC spin.
In her statement to CBS’ Harry Smith, which he didn’t call her on, “We’re going to throw you to the wolves, and allow insurance companies to deny you coverage and drop you for pre-existing conditions,” Wasserman-Schultz manages to wrap a lie up with fear mongering.
A lie, you say? Yup, Wasserman-Schultz is a lying liar according to both Factcheck.org and the Washington Post. The Washington Post article went as far as to give Wasserman-Schultz “three Pinocchios” and labeled her statement “bogus.”
