The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) reinforces that there is hope that this Country will return to its founding principles of freedom of religion; government of, for, and by the people; strong families; and everyone has the ability--through hard work--to become successful. It was jut announced in the opening session that over 10,000 people are attending CPAC. The mood is positive--the love for our Country is strong--and the march toward ousting Obama is advancing. We've heard about how the Occupiers are threatening physical harm on us--class act.
The UAW Retiree Medical Benefits Trust announced that it has net assets of $58.8 billion and total benefit obligations of $79 billion--putting it $20.2 billion in the hole. Trust officials anticipate that will result in higher costs for UAW retirees. I smell another Obama bailout!
In the same week that saw the NAA(L)CP petition the United Nations to intervene in state voter ID laws and our derelict Attorney General going to Texas to add his subsidized two cents on the issue, we are given this fantastic photo.
Continued below the fold.
The Democrats and Liberals are keeping really quiet about this. Is There any wonder why Obama stayed away from Wisconsin on his latest Campaign Tour (Listening Tour, Cough! Cough!), even though he was right next door. Wisconsin is the last place they want to talk about, just like New Jersey !
This got real quiet as to how it came out. Well, here are the results.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is the so called 99%*.
Regardless of your feelings on this whole "occupy" thing, I think we can all agree that this is atrocious and indefensible. Not to mention that if you're trying to garner support for your "cause", this is probably not the best way to go about it.

If you hate Unions and the lazy lemmings who would rather live off of your hard work than pull their own weight, then VOTE NO ON ISSUE 2!
Ohio and the communities in Ohio who can no longer afford to pay 100% of some Union hacks prescription for Viagra will have no choice but to start laying off Union labor. The lower numbers of Union members mean they will have less political clout.
That will mean open season on Unions in Ohio. And, as the Toledo Blade proved, if you lock out your union hacks for a year or two, you can start making a profit.
I'm sure I'm not the only one getting flooded with calls both on my cell and my home phone with these bullys pushing me to vote no on issue 2. While I already voted by absentee, I am very irritated that they waste my minutes pushing their thoughts and trying to sway my vote. I went to the site to complain and of course there is no phone number. I'd like everyone in america to send them an email asking them to stop.
How do we get off of the list of calls for politics and charities? They dont pay my bill and have no right to use my numbers..
99% of how many Malcontents, Liberals, Hipsters, Communists, Goonions, America Haters, Anarchists and Paul will "Occupy" Toledo?
Were the police and firefighters that were doing their job and killed doing their job in the World Trades Center 10 years ago heroes or as what a lot of people here on this site call someone who belongs to a union a "union thugs"?
Is the AFL-CIO starting it's own political party?
AFL-CIO President and muppet "Waldorf" look-a-like Richard Trumka was quoted as saying “You’re going to see us give less money to build structures for others, and more of our money will be used to build our own structure.”
I personally hope they do. It will be fun in Toledo watching the A team and B team square off but this time with (D) and (L) behind their names.
A couple of unions are in discussions to sell the Park Inn downtown to Chinese investors. How are you going to defend them from what appears to be selling out?
Another one to place in the "Do as I say, not as I do" file on liberal hypocrisy.
For all the whining that was done on the left about outside money from the right to support Wisconsin's collective bargaining reforms, does it really surprise anyone to see where money is coming from to support the recall efforts?
My apologies if the the chart is a little tough to read. Had to shrink it by half for it to fit. The link to the article at the end of the post will have the full size image.
Cleland's Outdoor World located at 10306 Airport Highway in Swanton, Ohio has rebuilt their store in the same location as the old place (destroyed by fire) and is having their grand reopening. The thing is, when they rebuilt the place they used non-union labor, and as a result the local labor unions are seeking a boycott of the new store. Maggie Thurber wrote about it in her post, Cleland's, Union Labor and Hypocrites.
"Told you so" just doesn't seem enough. Like I said before, S&P said not one damn thing about the Debt Ceiling. http://swampbubbles.com/20110801/dow-jones-drops-and-standard-poors-drop...
Hear that giant sucking sound? THAT IS YOUR HOME MORTGAGE RATE GOING UP, GAS PRICES GOING UP, YOUR CREDIT CARDS COSTING MORE AND YOUR RETIREMENT PLAN GOING TO CHINA.

S&P downgrades US credit rating from AAA

Or at least that is what the liberal left would like you to think about me or anyone else who dares support legislation requiring a photo ID to vote. But when you take into consideration that their goal is to bring everyone down to the lowest common denominator*, the accusation is hypocritical, laughable and just plain dumb. Especially when you add in how the left operates; arguments based on emotion rather than fact and focused on the supposed rights of a group rather than the actual rights of an individual.
"Buy American", right?
"Out of a job yet? Keep buying foreign" right?
So why is Obama going to a foreign owned company and kissing the ring of the Italian owners of this foreign owned company?
And where is the Union brotherhood? Why are they allowing Crysler to be purchased by a foreign company but screeching like little girls when a Chinese company wants to buy land?
What a bunch of Obama, Italian, Union only and to hell with America butt kissers.
She probably would've been forced to return the car.
This quite possibly could've been one of the funniest things I've read this week. And the thing with the car doesn't come into play until the end.
Only this time it is a little closer to home.
In what can only be described as an absolute disgrace, Ohio police and firefighters began National Police Week on Monday by holding press conferences across the state (incl. Toledo) to rail on SB5 and push the repeal initiative. While that doesn't sound too bad, what makes it truly repugnant is that it was done under the guise of honoring fallen officers.
This one goes out to all the class warriors and union members, hacks, thugs, etc. who were astroturfed to Madison and Columbus to protect their diseased golden goose and rail on the rich, evil corporate fat cats.
