Skip to comments.Why I Confronted Jeff Flake on a Plane
Posted on 12/15/2017 12:40:36 PM PST by nickcarraway
I've spent my career as an advocate for economic justice, fighting for basic fairness for working families. It wasn't until this past year that I began fighting for my own life.
It's that fight that led me to get arrested protesting the Republican tax plan in Washington, and that led me into debating it with Sen. Jeff Flake at 30,000 feet in the air on my way home.
I never thought I'd be in this position. A year ago, I was healthy, taking morning runs on the California coast and looking forward to a new life with my newborn son, Carl.

A real Snowflake arguing with a bonified Flake?
Lokks to me with all of those companies to run, maybe it is just too much for him to handle with only one employee for all three.
Perhaps he should have emulated DB Cooper and jumped out the back of the plane.
Without the money, of course.
Or the parachute.
For once, I wish these people would be honest with who they are and what they really stand for. Instead of having to deceive in order to push this agenda.
I guess they get tired of trying to convince us it will "work" if the right people are in charge so it's easier to deceive Americans. If it "worked" they would not have to deceive but they're so insane/fanatical towards communism, they ignore all realworld logic.
Did he write you a check for $100 to report this ?
Did he write you a check for $100 to report this ?
From exactly the same people who brought us all the way along the road of ruin from the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 to the crash of 2008.
And yeah, I dislike Flake too. But I hate people like this ACORN POS even more.
Even if Senator Flake promised personally to underwrite all this man’s medical care, the author would still have ALS, still be in pain, still experience increasing incapacity, and still die.
I can understand that, rather than accepting this, he would prefer to believe that there could be some other outcome if only Good Prevailed in the Federal budget.
I’d like reporters to simply report facts, and point our right/left POV’s if it necessary for context.
Ady sounds like the kind of reporter that is the problem. He wants to change the world, be an advocate for change, champion some sort of cause. Even if this guy was a conservative republican I’d have the same comment.
Reporters - report
Commentators - comment
In the first editions of "Rules for Radicals", there was a dedication to Lucifer from Alinsky:
Several copies of the book I had seen did not have it, and it was only when I got it from the Library that it has a newer printing that had the text.
Apparently, Alinsky had the publishers remove the dedication to Lucifer because he had to work with the clergy, and didn't want to upset them with that quote, so he had to lie and deceive them.
They put it back in the later editions, because then, it was considered cool and edgy, and the clergy by that time had no problem with it. The clergy he dealt with were probably most like "Reverend" Wright's "church" in Chicago.
Bottom line, they can't let people know exactly who they are, even today. They have to lie and deceive lest people catch on.
Who knew there were so many liberal deficit hawks? They all seemed to be in hiding during the Obama years, when our deficit really skyrocketed.
For anyone who wants to know what this guy was worried about...
Its the deficit! Yep! Didn’t give a rat’s rear (literally) about it under Obama, but he’s decided the Trump tax plan will cause such huge deficits that Medicaid and Medicare will cease to exist - and they will cut funding for his life support equipment.
But only, of course, after the Republicans push his grand mother down the stairs!
OK, I made that last part up. But this liberal buttwipe is suddenly worried that the government will have deficits. But he loved Obama. Cognitive dissonance exemplified.
Gay blade has hissy fit at 30K feet, meh ...
Why is nonsense like this posted on FR? Does every nutty statement like this need to be addressed?
Yes, that has been the marxist/commie-types guide in the USA for decades. I read awhile back from a media watch dog, where they claimed there is Rules for Radicals in almost all newsrooms, local and national, in the US. That would not surprise me at all given how the medias practice it every day against freedom-loving Constitutional-supporting Americans. Another reason they have to deceive is because this corrupt movement is not compatible with our Constitution.
I wish more Americans would wake up to the fact this has been a century-long push in this country. The creation of the Federal Reserve, the 16th & 17th Amendments, The New Deal, the creation of the welfare state, and the infiltration of all the places of influence in our culture like education, government, entertainment, music, news, corporations, etc.
They even arrogantly put it in the Congressional Record in the early 60’s on how communists can overtake America. Much of that has come true but many Americans still won’t believe it. We had a President who was going to expose it but was soon later assassinated. Joseph McCarthy was correct this communist movement was making headway in America but they used the power of the commie press to silence him.
I hope with the JFK files released, President Donald J. Trump continues to expose this traitorous movement and Americans who arrogantly thought it could never happen here, humble themselves and understand, it can and IT HAS and we all fight back to restore our Constitutional Republic.
If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.
From some old Chinese guy.
This is yet another change the world and leave it so called better place Abbie Hoffman wannabe who doesn’t believe in a judgement day much less salvation.....fine
But in his defense
He does have LOU GHERIG DISEASE
so I’m giving him a pass plus Flake is a progressive lite himself
I can’t imagine dying day by day watching your baby growing up and he ain’t that old
Call me weak
"In other words, a communist."
Yeah, that's about as far as I had to read too.
I lost count of how many I,I,I,me,me,mes are in this opinion piece. Typical liberal emotional whining.
