Personally, I think things like this are why the democrats can’t produce a budget. They’ve been heavily funding themselves and any budget they produce will contain unexplainable discrepancies.

Obama has been twisting the arms of state legislators, eg Colorado, to vote for gun control laws. More Chicago thug politics.

Obama is betting the low information voters will intimidate republican congressman more than conservatives and he may be right.

Heck, I didn’t even know hussein had a commercial DL. Or does he even have a DL? Was it issued in a state other than illinois? Like his SS number. Just wonderin’.

They do not appear to be using federal funds and I believe that the Constitution provides people with the right to attend political demonstrations.

Free transporation and free breakfast?

I wonder if the obongo administration will provide me with free transportation and a free breakfast to "protest" the Annual NRA Convention in Houston this May?

I would be willing to go "undecover" and go inside the convention, attend the meetings, buy from the vendors, and even eat at the banquets and then report back. They should get me a hotel room too so I can be thorough in my undercover scouting.

“Is This Even Legal?”

Obama rules by the divine right of kings, and the king can do no wrong.

The outcome of this debate is meaningless to me, so the as$hole in chief is wasting his time and effort. A2 guarantees my right to bear arms and I don’t GAF WHAT they decide. My guns will stay mine, period. Eat obama, Obama.

If they need to bus in 1199 union workers to astroturf against the NRA in New York, the Obamanation is in worse shape than even I thought. Really, they shouldn't need to bus in one single person.

Old tactic from the 60s - bus in outside agitators.

“Old tactic from the 60s - bus in outside agitators.”

Bus in people to beat the crap out of the agitators.

Old tactic from the 20’s.

Hugo Chavez does it.
Castro does it.
Putin does it.
Kim Jung Un does it.
Just another way (of many) Obama emulates his idols.

They are looking to turn this into a fight...

the are free to counter-demonstrate but are not free t intimidate....which is the goal here. They are cruising for an altercation.

I have several friends who are going to this demonstration with salt shakers full of KNO3

I’d like to see an audit. Union leaders can get paid for working on Union Business while on the clock....especially government unions. So I would love to see if anyone is getting paid a government salary to attend rallies like this.

Somebody needs to post the picture of the roofing nails with the square base. Scatter a few thousand of those on the roads and shut down access.

Make up some giant placards with an arrow pointing to the left or right, then stand next to the obamaBot. Signs can include “Obama paid me to be here”, “I voted Democrat and all I got was a lousy bus trip”, “I’m not from around here.”, etc., etc.,

Let them [SEIU] come.

It is part of gunpowder and it is what the search dogs are trained to sniff-out. Make the search dogs go crazy.

BTW, they are running everyone through a metal detector before they enter the plaza. there will be dogs, and they will be going nuts with the trails of potassium nitrate leading everywhere.

Security will be super tight, except near the SEIU goons.

I think you two are missing the danger here. These are not government-paid workers, but this is deep pockets being used to influence legislators, something the founders sought to avoid. For their trouble, they get access to administration officials.

See Even the NY Times thinks this is out of bounds

Oh I certainly see the danger. But thanks for the article. If this ‘social action group’ shares information with future democrat campaigns, that would be illegal....at least for a Republican candidate it would be.

I also still believe that many of the astro-turfers at these rallies will be government employees. And, I believe they will be union leaders, who will fill out their time cards as ‘official union business’, and literally get paid to be there...and they may get paid again by these wealthy donors.

BTW, why do I have a feeling that one of the $500k donors will be Bloomberg?

Perhaps, bit I doubt it is illegal.

And like it or not, the spending of money on a political cause is in fact a form of First Amendment expression.

Their goal is to influence elections through issue advocacy. They are vulnerable on this gun-rights fight, because Democrats in pro-gun states are vulnerable. I don’t think they knew what they were dealing with, but they’ve got some emotional advantage, with all the sissies who can’t even look at a gun without trembling.

They want to win back the House in 2014. The Tea Party and the gun owners are a threat to this.

Whether it’s legal or not, we shall see. There certainly hasn’t been this propaganda push by our national administration ever before. If it were grassroots it would be fine, but it is being orchestrated by the president.

“The event has been removed.” Is it a fact, then, that the Albany rally by the left has been cancelled??

DOES ANYONE KNOW ANY MORE ABOUT THE RALLY BEING CANCELLED?

Just talked to a friend who is going to this rally.

The SEIU thugs are going to get dusted with KNO3.

The bomb sniffing dogs are going to go nuts all over them.

Yes, I, too, am so very proud and inspired by the actions of these brave men and women of upstate New York and their reverse application of the left’s Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals (take Sauls’ Rules and reverse apply them to the left in any way you can...and it WORKS!) Band together in great numbers and plan a course of action, and it WORKS! You men and women are vocal and united in your support of our God given right to own and bear arms. Your numbers are strong and your drive unstoppable. May God bless you all in your fight for the Constitution, freedom and liberty!
