First, threats of boycott. Including against places that didn't allow any political advertising on the property or didn't endorse ANYONE. But when you've got a good threat going, what's the problem with threatening- and vandalizing- the wrong people?
Leaders of seven unions representing police, firefighters, teachers, and law enforcement signed a letter sent to M &I Bank.
The groups are giving M&I Bank until March 17th to publicly oppose Walker’s efforts. If it does, the unions will publicly celebrate the partnership to preserve rights. If the bank hasn’t responded by March 17th, the groups will publicly and formally boycott the company.
"Nice business you got here; shame if anything should happen to it, huh?"
Owner of Sendik’s Grocery Store in Shorewood, Anne Finch-Nehring, doesn’t understand why people would choose to boycott her store, because of what she may or may not believe. She says, “I have no political signage at our store, and we can’t. I wouldn’t do that, because I wouldn’t want to offend or tread on other customers rights to support who ever they want to support.”
Because you're a convenient target, and they want to damage anyone who doesn't bow down.
The other is on dirtbag union (excuses for)teachers:
Aren't you forgetting a thing or 2? You've got them chanting "Hey hey, ho ho, Scott Walker has got to go" — but what do they know about Scott Walker? That he's done something the teachers don't like. So, maybe some day, when you do something they don't like, some kid might start "Hey hey, ho ho, [TEACHER'S NAME] has got to go." Today, you're pleased to teach them "The children, united, will never be divided." I'm picturing them repurposing that chant back in the classroom.
Yeah, that's great. Use school time to teach the kids union chants and then use more school time to display the kids as props. That's REALLY going to get the parents on your side, isn't it?
Unions: is there anyone they won't screw over for the unions benefit?
I can understand someone not agreeing with Palin on things, I can understand someone thinking she has the wrong view on something; this kind of bullshit I do not:
“But if you close your eyes and listen to Palin and her most irate supporters constantly squawk or bellyache or tweet about how unfair a ride she gets from evil mustache-twirling elites and RINO saboteurs, she sounds like a professional victimologist, the flip side of any lefty grievance group leader. She’s becoming Al Sharpton, Alaska edition. The only difference being, she wears naughty-librarian glasses instead of a James Brown ‘do.”
Reminds me of the people who, after the Tucson shooting, were blaming her for it and then, when she dared respond, screeched "SHE'S TRYING TO MAKE THIS ABOUT HER! Isn't she DISGUSTING?"
And 'naught-librarian glasses'? Screw you LaBash, you sound like a clown trying to make sure you're invited to the 'right' parties.
The Prevaricator in Chief is still talking about the wonders of 'change' in the mid-East & north Africa, but doing squat except talking. And talking. And pretending to be doing something.
The NRA has announced it won't take part in Obama's "Let's have some new ways to screw with the 2nd Amendment" talks; a view that they're doing it because 'the fix is in'. From his post the other day:
The GOP leadership is loathe to push the Project Gunwalker scandal hearings. Said one congresscritter to someone he thought was sympathetic, "We don't want to be enemies with the ATF." Issa and Smith are both said to be disinterested.
How could that be, you ask, when Smith just sent that demand letter to ATF? Remember he only did it because the NRA was calling for hearings. And why did the NRA call for hearings?
From two sources on or near the NRA board:
"The NRA is doing this just to say that they did. The same goes for Lamar Smith and Issa. After the CBS stories they had to do SOMETHING. LaPierre tried to stay out of it, but he felt the push from below by board members and regular membership, especially some of our law enforcement members."
And from Tam on all the "oh Noes, NUCLEAR!" screaming,
Jesus wept! How about a sense of proportion here? Potentially ten thousand or more dead in an instant from a tidal wave and everybody's worried about a bump in thyroid cancers down the road? (And I'll point out that those '60s-vintage GE reactors compare to the current state of the art in the safety features department like a '60s-vintage Chevy does to the current product.)
