DEMs BRING IN THE CLOWNS
Fiedor Report On the News ^ | 7-24-04 | Doug Fiedoro

Posted on 07/24/2004 10:33:34 AM PDT by forest

Send in the clowns. Here come the clowns.

Yeah, the four-day Democratic Party convention will begin at Boston's FleetCenter on July 26, 2004.

Oh wait, it's supposed to be a serious event, I guess. Perhaps that's why they imported those hundreds of extra hookers and the Boston Police have instructions to allow them to sell their wares unimpeded.

But, darn, it's hard to take this convention seriously when the lead speakers remind me of a Bart Simpson quote: "Didn't do it. Didn't see me do it. Can't prove anything."

To start off the show, they've got Hillary introducing Bill Clinton. Now, there's a believable pair, huh. Then comes other clowns like Al the bore Gore and Howard Dean. We can't help but wonder if each will do their famous rendition of a wild-man scream to entertain the delegates. Why not? Democrats seem to like that stuff in political speeches.

And, talk about extracurricular fun, Dennis Kucinich plans his own personal rendition of a clown act(1). Check out his web site: "Congressman Dennis Kucinich is in a unique position as a Democratic candidate -- with Delegates from around the country -- to be the voice inside the Convention on issues such as universal health care, fair trade, the repeal of the Patriot Act, and an end to the Iraq occupation. At the same time, the Kucinich Campaign will participate in and facilitate an inclusive dialogue outside the Convention. The Campaign aims to engage as many people as possible in the Boston Social Forum, the Convention process, and other activities such as workshops, peace vigils and street events to be held throughout the week."

Yet another delusional Democrat, obviously.

In the background, there's a tug of war for Democratic Party controls between the Clinton cabal and the Kerry-Kennedy contingent. This could produce some interesting sidebar stories from the convention -- Hillary throwing another hissy-fit and trashing her hotel room, et cetera. Also, Kennedy and Dodd will be expected to make their famous sandwich with some unsuspecting waitress (or a hooker) at some point. Unknown to the Democrats, a small contingent of budding journalists will be attending the after-hours events with spy-cams, so there may be a few interesting background reports worth mentioning later.

The people of Boston are getting a little upset with the Democrats, finally. The Boston Globe ran a poll that had over 11,000 respondents(2). As reported, 87% said the convention will cost area residents too much trouble, inconvenience and money. Only 12% said hosting the convention was worth it. To top it off, the local economy is expected to lose over $50-million on the deal.

We shouldn't feel sorry for Boston, though. After all, that's the focal point for keeping Kennedy and Kerry in office, so they deserve whatever they get.

The Democrats say they are the party of the working person. So, let's take a moment to examine exactly how they are treating working people for their convention.

First, there's the grumbling from the cab drivers -- who may refuse to pick up delegates at the airport. As reported, the tab from the airport usually runs about thirty bucks. The Democratic Party wants cabbies to accept payment via a "voucher" to be redeemed after the convention. And, the Democrats only plan to pay twenty bucks per voucher.

Then, there's the little matter of an ongoing police and firefighter strike -- although they do report to work. Police and firefighters plan to picket the convention, which should be interesting. At this writing, the mayor is forcing the union into expedited arbitration, causing the police union leadership to say the convention will be picketed even more vigorously as a result.

Unions, of course, support Democrats. The California delegation reported they will not cross the union picket line. Five other states agreed with California.

However, there is a good bit of hypocrisy involved on the part of the union picketers. The unions say the pickets will back off when Kerry enters the convention so he will not be seen as crossing a union picket line.

So, we'll have the popcorn and beverages ready when they send out the clowns. If nothing else, the convention is expected to be a lot funnier than normal television programming.

This is a sick, evil group of "people," if by "people" one means prostitutes, trial lawyers, union thugs, media propagandists, Hollywood drug addict degenerates, abortionists, traitors, corrupt money men, FemiNazis, Bond villain George Soros agents, and other vermin.

Actually one besmirches the good name of AIDS/chlamydia/herpes infected prostitutes by associating them with disgusting democrats amd their media sock-puppets.

Saw this on Yahoo news:

An area designated for organized protests appears enclosed by mesh and chain link fencing near the site of the upcoming Democratic National Convention, in Boston, Wednesday, July 21, 2004. A new federal lawsuit has been filed against the city over the fenced-in protest area that has been called a 'demonstration zone,' and a 'free speech zone.'

I would encourage all non-RATS to stay away from Boston....the lack of protestors would show how insignificant the RATS really are.

You think Kerry will show up in his Rolls Royce to rub the little people's nose in it, like he did in Detroit.

The Mayor of Boston was on Softball last night and assured Chrissie Matthews that the unions had all been paid off and there shouldn't be any problems.

The Unions were all paid off by Kerry and Kennedy way before this. That is why the BIg Dig, The deep tunnel has now scammed over 15 billion dollars from all of the Federal tax payers.

Ops4 God BLess America!

Almost, but not quite a done deal yet. This is in today's news:

"Even as an arbitrator awarded them a contract Thursday, leaders of the Boston Police Patrolmen's Association suggested they would picket parties welcoming delegates, whether or not other unions reached settlements before then, to protest being forced into fast-track arbitration."
http://www.boston.com/news/politics/conventions/articles/2004/07/24/city_closes_in_on_labor_peace/


Things could still get very interesting with the pickets because some state delegations will not cross the picket lines and so may not participate in the convention.

Another interesting point is that something similar is brewing in New York City. . . . .

One of the best statements I have ever read.

I really don't care much for the Rat convention. Conservatives should just ignore the damn thing.

I like President George Bush a lot, but I wish I had a better alternative to him to choose from than Fidel Kerry!

To: Doug Fiedor; All

The Democratic Convention set some new records, among them the lowest ratings, meaning lowest acceptance.
