ACORN thugs attack members of the NY Senate

Friday, June 19th, 2009

NewsDay reports that

Protesters closely aligned with Democrats nearly knocked a Republican senator to the floor and are accused of spitting in the face of his chief of staff.

Sen. James Alesi, of Monroe County, walked out of the chamber later Thursday, not seriously harmed. He said he was disturbed by the crowd of at least 150 people, including those from Citizen Action the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN.

Keep in mind that violence from the left nothing new.

Morning Roundup

Let’s start with crude oil prices continuing their climb to rise above $71 a barrel. Remember what happened last summer with a sharp spike in oil prices? That’s right kids, a companion sharp spike in inflation! Pretty much everything you buy had to be shipped in, at least part of the way, by truck. A spike in inflation, especially in food prices, is a tax on everyone, with the poor the hardest hit. What is our Dear Leader going to do about it? The answer to that question is, not a damn thing. Remember that he thinks gas prices up around $4 or $5 a galleon is a “good thing.” He’s doesn’t have to drive the kids around or commute to work, so why should he care if it affects you?

According to Industry Week, the democrat‘s Cap and Tax scheme is a really bad idea for the American economy.

John at Powerline points out that “The days when “whistle blowers” were popular on the left are gone”. The moonbat view is that anyone who dares to “investigate an Obama crony” deserves whatever they get.

While on the topic of our Dear Leader‘s illegal firing of Gerald Walpin, the inspector general of AmeriCorps, Byron York has some advice on how to see that truth gets out.

Michelle Malkin has a story on ObamaCare that our Dear Leader and his cronies don’t want you to read.

According to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office, the democrats’ $1 Trillion Health Care Plan will Cost 23 Million Americans their Private Insurance.

Some leftist homosexuals are starting to figure out that our Dear Leader and the DNC have used them as “useful idiots”. Dudes (and dudettes, and whatever sexual identity you may have), it was clearly obvious to anyone not blinded by an overdose of BDS that you were going to get thrown under the bus by BHO! If you are finally getting serious, not only do you need to stop supporting the democrats, but start firmly supporting the Libertarian Party. It’s the only party that truly doesn’t care what consenting adults do or with each other and strongly believes that it’s none of the government’s business either. Until you do that, the DNC is just going to keep screwing you over in ways you don’t like!
