Willamette Vinyards funding Acorn Bus in Oregon
http://busproject.org/

Posted on 08/12/2009 1:29:53 PM PDT by Zathras

One of our sources at the David Wu protest Monday found this. I suspect a direct connection between Pelosi's vineyard in Napa, WWV and Acorn.

We should likely take a look at the pictures out of these events and identify the regular short bussers. LOL We could single them out at other events with a nice welcoming sigh with an arrow... “PROFESSIONAL EVENT CRASHER - courtesy of the DNC” And have their picture on the sign, wouldn’t THAT be a hoot??? LMAO

acorn funding from an industry that probably hires alot of illegals. And wants all of us to pay for their illegals health care.

Greed.

Even if conservative "protestors" were organized (which I doubt) they pay their own damn way to the event. Libtards are disgustingly hypocrtical, but I repeat myself.

Quote from their website: Time to spit some truth: new government needs to be good government and good government needs an engaged citizenry.

Thanks for posting a heads up on the calif page, Zathras.

Didja get a screen capture?

I went to the website and didn't find any connection to Pelosi or her Napa winery

Danae, what did it say on the page you saved?

Oh

So the screen capture doesn’t make a connection?

Or it’s just speculation on your part?

If we are going to nail Pelosi on this, we need proof.

"The Bus Project has mobilized thousands of volunteers and activists around the state of Oregon. We bring voters out of the woodwork. We create forums to learn about candidates and policy issues. The BusPAC works to elect the best progressive candidates in the state. We do it all, with one constant: combining fun and politics"

Pelosi hires illegals at her vineyard. Wouldn't surprise me to find a connection there, but also just simple liberals with too much money and not enough brains.

BTW Rush caller mentioned today that six busloads of "Organizing for Healthcare" sign-carrying Obama supporters were brought in for Obama's "townhall" in New Hampshire yesterday.

Bus project has been around a while. And yeah, they are disgustingly far left. I see their website has almost no content right now (I don't know what may have been there earlier today), but a couple years ago they had a forum populated by a handful of far lefties who also rode the indymedia bandwagon. I don't think even the mainstream Democrats gave them much cred back then.

Of course we have a new kind of Democrats now and the thinking of that site's old guard is mainstream to them.

I wish more people knew that.

Good to know for boycott purposes.

Lots of nice Southern Oregon Conservative Wine on offer. My neighbor’s tempranillo, for example. Gun toting, pesticide spraying, entrepreneurial Eye-talian.

I didn’t see the Willamette Valley vinyard connection.
Where was it, what did it say, speculation?
If WWV as an organization is supporting these causes I won’t be buying another bottle and will certainly spread the word.

Anybody know the brand of pelosi’s wine?

Pelosi is the sole owner of Zinfandel Lane Vineyard in St. Helena and Skellenger Lane Vineyard in Napa. She also has shares in Ernest and Julio Gallo (which is one of the biggest operations in the valley).

She also is an owner of the Restaurant at Meadowood Resort that hires illegal workers.

You can see it in the source code when you check out WWV’s website. The link was still there as of yesterday.

One Oregon congresscritter that has failed to hold any healthcare town halls in newly-elected Kurt Schrader. I have contacted his office several times about Cap and Tax and Health Care, only to be left with the distinct impression that this guy thinks he has a safe seat. Truth is he doesn't. And if he keeps up with the condescending attitide thanks will hopefully change

Next Tuesday there will be a town hall meeting about health care with Congressmen Schrader in Oregon City. At 10:00 IN THE MORNING, so working people don't show up.

Maybe someone with better posting skills can get this out to local people.
