a couple of days ago, and I've been thinking about some of the bits I've heard from it(which proved he really is a sphincter, but there wasn't really any question about that). And I think it's(among other things) proof of the mistake of letting these clowns stay in office too long. It causes them to take that 'Most Exclusive Club In The World' crap about the Senate seriously, which leads to all kinds of other nonsense. Like thinking they are the nobles of the country and us peasants should shut up and let them rule.
Think about this jerk standing in front of the people who vote and saying I could be somewhere else. I don’t get any extra pay — I don’t have any requirement to be here. But for somebody –
CROWD: [Angry murmuring] You work for us! You report to us!
SPECTER: Okay, okay, number — well, I am reporting to you...
Specter apparently doesn't think that the does work for those people who vote; otherwise he'd realize there IS a requirement for him to be there; any employee is required to answer to the boss when there are questions, or a problem with his job performance, but Specter and a whole lot of other politicians have forgotten that. They're so used to pulling crap like the per diem scam that's come out(I wonder how much of our money these thieves have stolen over the years with this alone?), to having the others cover for them(think the tax evaders like Dodd and Rangel will ever actually face justice?) that they really think we should all stay out of their way and shut up; remember that video of Rangel telling someone to 'mind his own goddamn business'?
And now they've managed to piss off a lot of people enough that they're taking time from work or from home and raising hell about it. And how do a lot of these bozos react? By insulting the people, by threatening them, in some cases by having union thugs show up to threaten and beat people.
Meet Elston K. McCowan. McCowan is a one-time organizer, and now the Public Service Director of SEIU Local 2000. He is also a board member of the Walbridge Community Education Center in St. Louis., Allegedly a Baptist minister he has been a community organizer for more than 23 years. Last year, he ran for Mayor of the City of St. Louis under the Green Party banner, during which time he accused the Democrat Mayor of setting fire to his van and called Slay a racist.
It was Elston McCowan who accosted Ken Gladney, who is also black, at the Carnahan town meeting in St. Louis Thursday night with the words, “Why is a nigger handing out ‘Don’t tread on me’ flags?"
Shortly after that, McCowan and several other SEIU thugs and Carnahan supporters ganged up on Ken Gladney and beat him so badly they put him in the hospital with injuries to his knee, back, elbow, shoulder and face. McCowan has since been arrested by the St. Louis police for assaulting Gladney.
These are the bastards the current administration calls on to try to force an unpopular bill down our throats. When they're not calling us unAmerican for daring to protest, when they're not packing the audience and playing games with the media to stir things up. When they're not calling us political terrorists for daring to speak out.
At this point, I think we not only need term limits, we need to start the limits on a bunch of them with tar and feathers.
Or maybe a flagrum...
