3-Day CPAC Registration Pass $175 (that's how much the pass cost for pre-registration)

Witnessing (in-person) 11,000 people who are invigorated to stop Barrack Obama from taking away more of our freedoms and stopping the Government from controlling our lives--priceless!

Now Earl include the cost of transportation, lodging, five star dining plus registration fees for a total. Do you think the readers believe YOU paid for this on a talk show host salary? So far Mr. Earl, Herr Wilson, and Maggie have avoided this question. WHO HAS PAID FOR THIS?

WHO PAID? The AFL-CIO, to the tune of $60 a day! That's who!

Your union dues at work!

NOTE TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE A CLUE: Up until now, I haven't addressed Wolfman's assumption that I am Charlie Earl. Actually, I did see Mr. Earl on Thursday when I went to radio row to see Brian Wilson interview Michelle Bachmann (actually took his photo). Strangely, CPAC allowed my spouse, sister-in-law , and I to register for the event--even though we came from the same state as Mr. Earl. Anyway, unlike the Occupiers who are bought and paid for with union and 1 percenters such as George Soros, we paid our own way. It was worth ever cent.

The 99% who work in this country would like to know who is paying the way of these right wing radio hosts? Galt I do believe you work for WBSPD so maybe you can answer this question. How much is this costing CCMO? So far Fred & Maggie are evading this question. Hopefully the local media will pickup on this and report on it. Its easy to get thousands of Tea Partiers together when the costs are being paid for by secret donors. Sounds rather hypocritical of the Tea Partiers ethos. At least the paid accommodations are not a tent at the nearest park. Nice try in making the unions to look to be bankrolling this. If the unions were buying then the Occupiers wouldn't be sleeping in tents!

It would be 99% of your personalities you crazy bastard. I know it may be difficult for you to understand, but there are many professions (teachers, sales people, doctors, etc.) that from time to time necessitate attendance at out of town conferences, events and meetings.

Or could it be that you have your panties in a twist because radio row at a liberal event similar to CPAC would be a ghost town? And that would just crush your dreams of saddling up next to Ed the Red and Taliban Thom.

in that I am part of the 99% who work, and quite frankly, could not care any less who paid for the right wing radio hosts to attend. Please stop attempting to speak for me and others who work but don't care. When you do, you drag me into your realm of ignorance and that is one place I do not not want to be involved in...

Noticed that the Occupiers had professionally printed signs. You don't suppose that they answered an ad "WANTED: People with no direction and ability to chant meaningless phrases," showed up, got a union-approved sign and marched like mindless chattel to the Marriott?

our very own wolfman.

Unfortunately, I think he passed ignorance quite awhile back and has now moved into a state of delusional paranoia.

and, not that it's any of your business, I'm here on my own dime.

I do have blogger credentials which I applied for and received (because I'm a blogger - duh!), but that just got me access to bloggers row where I compete with all the other bloggers for a power strip to plug in my laptop...oh - and coffee.

I did this on my own ... unlike the Occupiers who got PAID TO PROTEST...because they couldn't get enough people to do so on their own.

Oh - and as for your 'avoiding the question' stupidity - I usually don't pay any attention to your posts. I owe you - and anyone else - no explanation as to my private travel plans.

So, wolfie - who pays for your internet access? Who pays for your computer? Who pays for your food and clothes and housing? Your 'obligation' to tell us who pays for you is the same as my 'obligation' to answer your idiotic question.

And why do you care who paid my way in the first place - are you the travel police???

Sorry if I may have come across too directly but we do know that some local talk show hosts have been attracted to those with money. There is a history to this fact. I mean listeners have a right to know all that may affect their opinion...you know both sides of a story. So I hope you don't mind me asking the questions that I think need asking.

Did you get the CPAC Platinum Package with full access to everything?

Galt (what ever his real name is) has made note of all the young faces in attendance. Other national blogs have questioned that super pack money is "packing the house" with young people who could otherwise not afford an all expense paid trip to Washington. What does the WSPD staff, many who are at CPAC, have to say about this? In your balanced news gathering have you asked any of the young fresh faces how they came to be at CPAC?

Oh to answer your statement about the Occupiers getting paid, well if you look I think you'll find most of them are living or were living in tents not plush Washington accommodations.

...that you embarass yourself.

Most of the 'young people' (55% of registered participants are under the age of 25) are college students with discounted tickets who are staying with fellow area students. Most of them pooled their money to carpool.

I've talked with them and am very impressed with their thinking, logic, reasoning and sacrifices to be able to afford to be here. Unlike the left, which usually has to pay people to attend such events, conservatives find a way to do these things on their own. They don't think other people should pay their way - they pay their own way since that is consistent with their conservative principles.

Your error is in 'projecting' - applying the tactics of the left to this clearly conservative gathering. It's apples and oranges.

BTW - I'm not a reporter who needs to be unbiased and object in my coverage. I'm a blogger who expresses my opinion. There is no 'balance' in my opinion - it's conservative with a small-L libertarian bent.

Your failure to understand the difference is the biggest part of your problem.

Oh - and if you want to know what WSPD thinks of anything - ask them, not me. I'm a fill-in host - not an employee. But considering your disgust with their opinions, I can't imagine why you even care.

Sorry if I may appear ignorant but it has been reported that CPAC sponsors have given out "scholarships" to attend CPAC. Maybe in the spirit of fairness you could report back as a part time Speedy talk show host the real deal of these "scholarships". Don't you think it suspect that 55% of the participants are under 25? I hear you when you say you're a biased blogger, I believe you, but really do you think that is good for your Speedy street cred? Or does it feed into the many critics who think that WSPD is unbalanced?

Based on most of your posts, you don't actually watch any other news besides Cartoon Network or Comedy Central.

Or has this crap that has "been reported" spoon-fed by your shop steward and told to parrot on every free media outlet you infest?

Will we see another lame Letter To The Blade with your name on it that is simply a cut-n-paste of what George Soros, MoveOn.org, Warran Buffett, the UAW and the rest of your puppet masters tell you to say?

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

You're wrong about the occupiers and protesters... almost all of them went to their home last night - not to a tent. I'm here and saw for myself.

So you left the 25 year old Tea Partiers at CPAC and visited some Occupiers? I can imagine the hangover the young Tea Partiers have today. When you say went home last night... you mean straight home to their families not some union sponsored, CPAC like, celebration?

According to the UAW owned Blacklake Golf Course website, three days of golfing costs $195.00 if you play 18 holes for three days during weekdays.
http://www.blacklakegolf.com/rates-3/

Add in the Union Owned hotel room rates for those three days and the total jumps to $444.00
http://www.blacklakegolf.com/accommodations-16/

Now imagine how much those drunk Union hacks spend on the 19th hole
http://www.blacklakegolf.com/clubhouseblack-lake-grill-19/

Yet a 3-day pass to CPAC is $195.00? Less than 1/2 the price of golfing for the same amount of time at the UAW owned golf course in MI.

Damn money grubbing rich elite Union Hack 1%ers. Raping the working man to keep their rich lifestyles.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

Ya know, if the "occupy" assholes spent more time working, or some other productive activity. Maybe they wouldn't need to feel so jealous of those that have more than them.

"We're all riding on the Hindenburg, no sense fighting over the window seats"-Richard Jenni

Wolfie, you may be shocked to learn that for many productive members of society, a thousand dollars is not considered to be too great of a financial sacrifice to attend a political conference with like-minded people.

You have no right to demand any explanation regarding who payed for what. Why would you ever think you are entitled to demand such info ?

Big Jim

Wolfie has the right to an explanation because Liberals make sure to infest every area of a person's life.

He has the right because he learned that screeching about trans-fats allows him to tell you what to eat.

He took that right because he learned that protesting smoking in privately owned business allowed him to take away your right to a legal product in a private establishment.

He injected himself into your private life because he and his ilk (namely Carl Levin D -MI) wrote a law called "National Defense Authorization Act" which passed in the DEMOCRAT CONTROLLED SENATE by a 93 - 7 vote. He and his type still support a President who signed that act into law thereby taking away your right to trial on a whim.

He and his type ARE MAKING IT THEIR RIGHT to demand any explanation they want.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

You can't make this stuff up, all you can do is laugh.

From the article:
Protesters at Friday’s “Occupy CPAC” event, organized by AFL-CIO and the Occupy DC movement, told The Daily Caller that they were paid “sixty bucks a head” to protest outside the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C.
One protester told TheDC that all the “Occupy” activists were being paid to protest, and that his union, Sheet Metal Workers Local 100, approached him about the money-making opportunity.
“I have nothing nice to say about Local 100. … They just told me ‘you wanna make sixty bucks? So c’mon,’” the protester said.
Other “Occupy CPAC” protesters were unwilling to speak on camera because they were unaware what they were protesting and what the CPAC event was about.

Koch Brothers Flout Law Getting Richer With Secret Iran Sales
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-10-02/koch-brothers-flout-law-getting...
Quote from article:
The Koch brothers have vaulted into the American political spotlight in recent years. Koch Industries has spent more than $50 million to lobby in Washington since 2006, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonpartisan group that tracks political donations. The company opposed derivatives regulation and greenhouse gas limits.

The brothers have backed a foundation that has trained thousands of Tea Party activists. The Tea Party, a popular movement whose name stands for Taxed Enough Already, has grown into a potent force in national politics. Sixty representatives of Congress, out of a total of 435, identify themselves as Tea Party members. Virtually every Republican candidate for president -- including Texas Governor Rick Perry and Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann -- has solicited the group’s support.
