snip The Tea Party specifically requests the NAACP and the ACLU to come out in support of Kenneth Gladney’s rights which were trampled by these hooligans. We call on Representative Russ Carnahan to denounce the beating. We call on President Obama to denounce the beatings. We call on St. Louis County to prosecute the assailants to fullest extent of the law.

Excellent points. The Left can dish it out, but they don’t seem to be able to TAKE it very well. ;o)

I’m sure the NAACP and ACLU will be there alright: siding with the Unions. :)

This isn't a schoolyard dispute, for Pete's sake.

You're right, it's more important than a schoolyard fight, because the stakes are so much higher.

I would be afraid that having armed support on call could end up escalating a fist fight into something much more tragic. Any such tragedy would certainly be spun to make us look bad even if the SEIU started it. I think a better idea would be to have the police aware of the protest ready to respond if there is any trouble.

At first I wanted to hop on a plane to be there.

But why go looking for trouble? When it comes to you - kick its ass, because any attempt to intimidate, frighten or silence deserves an ass-kicking.

But look for trouble and you will end up looking like a thug yourself.

That being said - I’d still love to be there. I guess I’m in a picking-a-fight mood.

This thing will essentially be a racial face off.

If that's the case, then the ESL folks should be on the side of the black man who was beaten down by the Union goons. The folks attending could create signs to that effect.

I’m proud of you! That fat bully probably thought that his mere presence and size were enough to intimidate. He probably had NEVER encountered someone like you. I’m a fairly small female, and I’ve taken on two overbearing, bullying bosses (verbally and privately), and they backed down like little boys, usually with a “Sorry, m’am.” I think people can sense the fire in our eyes and bellies.

I think this is a bone-headed move and should be cancelled.

If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.

That song is not about race. That song is about power, and the power of the seemingly powerless.

Obama has all the power. The ability to spend Trillions of Dollars is power. The suthority to take over entire industries is power. Appointing bureaucrats with the mandate to decide life and death on an individual and group basis is the most noxious use of power.

But all of that fades away in the face of the people, united.

The People. United. Will Never Be Defeated!

This should be our new theme song...

We shall overcome.
We shall overcome.
We shall overcome, some day.
Because deep in my heart, I do believe
That we shall overcome, some day.

I have many problems with protests at the enemy's headquarters.

I think it is a far better strategy to bring the fight directly to the enemy, rather than sit back & cower, waiting for the socialist-fascist-commie pigs, led by 0bozo & his union goons to attack us. Seventy years of sitting back defensively (ever since the FDR days) has earned us nothing but scorn & derision & defeat at the hands of socialist-fascist commie pigs. It is way past time to carry the fight to the inner gates of the enemy.

KING HENRY V, Act 4, Scene 3
Gloucester: Where is the King?
Bedford: The King himself is rode to view their battle.
Westmoreland: Of fighting men, they have full three-score thousand.
Exeter: There’s five to one; besides, they all are fresh.
Salisbury: God’s arm strike with us! ‘Tis a fearful odds.
Westmoreland: O that we now had here but one ten thousand of those men in England that do no work to-day!

King Henry V: What’s he that wishes so?
My cousin Westmoreland? No, my fair cousin:
If we are mark’d to die, we are enow
To do our country loss; and if to live,
The fewer men the greater share of honour.
God’s will! I pray thee, wish not one man more.
By Jove, I am not covetous for gold;
Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost;
It yearns me not if men my garments wear;
Such outward things dwell not in my desires;
But if it be a sin to covet honour,
I am the most offending soul alive.
No, faith, my coz, wish not a man from England:
God’s peace! I would not lose so great an honour,
As one man more, methinks, would share from me,
For the best hope I have. O, do not wish one more!
Rather proclaim it, Westmoreland, throughout my host,
That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
Let him depart; his passport shall be made,
And crowns for convoy put into his purse:
We would not die in that man’s company
That fears his fellowship to die with us.
This day is called the Feast of Crispian.
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when this day is nam’d,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbors,
And say, To-morrow is Saint Crispian:
Then he will strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say, These wounds I had on Crispin’s day.
Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he’ll remember with advantages
What feats he did that day: then shall our names,
Familiar in their mouths as household words –-
Harry the king, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester -–
Be in their flowing cups freshly remember’d.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember’d:
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother, be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap while any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day!

Your tag line says "Free Venezuela" but you claim it is a bone headed move to fight for our freedom & liberty & rights as AMERICANS in our own country? Do you think the socialist-fascist-commie pigs, 0bozo & his goons in this country or Chavez & his goons in Venezuela are just going to back down and retract their thugish totalitarian dictatorships all on their own? Socialism NEVER retreats or backs down, until it is confronted aggressively. Ronald Reagan taught us that in his unyielding fight against Soviet communism.

We are at war already against the socialists in this country. It is long past overdue for us to carry the fight directly to the home turf of the enemy!

I understand your concern. But there is no way we are going to handover the U.S. to that cheeky Kenyan bastard and his thugs/crooks.

Rush said today 2,000,000 U.S. citizens left the U.S. in ’08.

I hope somebody brings a bullhorn just like Rev. Al. LOL!

Here’s some chants to practice:

“Hey hey ho ho
Socialism’s got to go!”

“Keep your hands off my health care.”

“1-2-3-4
Shove Obama out the door.
2-4-6-8
Do it now or it’s too late.”

and since you’re picketing a union:

“Card check, no!
Card check, no!”

P.S.

It occured to me at that point (when Rush said 2,000,000 had left the U.S. in ‘08) when the cheeky Kenyan bastard will be putting limits on U.S. citizens leaving the U.S. of A.

This should be a real fear.

It would not affect me since I don’t live in the U.S., but it should be a worry to those who do.

Glenn,

The way this government is acting will cause violence. SEIU, ACORN, UAW, Teamsters, etc. are acting on behalf of the government financed by SOROS who learned well in communist Hungary.

I think this is a bone-headed move and should be cancelled.

If you ever lived under tyranny and saw how it developed, you wouldn't have made that statement. Smothering free speech is only the start, followed by smothering people who oppose the regime in many ways, including but not limited to, accidents and outright vanishing from the face of the earth.

Imagine that you would be afraid of saying anything "wrong" on the phone, at work or even talking to people you don't know well enough to "trust".

Imagine your relatives are enticed to snitch on you. This already started in this Administration in a government-snitching website. (NO, I don't have a link).

In my opinion, there is no difference between the outcome of zero’s election and an army coup that installed a dictator. I just didn't see any tanks in the streets.

Wake up, my FRiend, communists never retreat in front of a pacified populace. They are scared to death of any fight, verbal or otherwise, unless they have the tanks on their side.

Right after the election, I told friends that if the community organizer went for a Marxist agenda, he'd have to use his only skill/education, Alinsky's community organizing rules augmented by Daley's Chicago thuggary.

I predicted that violence will break out in parts of the country and that would be a spark for something bigger.

If this is the way they want it, so be it.

BTW, my spell checker didn’t like the word “Alinsky’s” and suggested “Lewinsky’s” instead! How liberal!

Although its very difficult to get hard facts, they apparently have connections (how deep who knows) with the albino worms that own Acorn.

At the very least their being mainly government workers should give all a concern that they donated $60 million to nobama and DNC in 2008.

Not sure who or what the Sun Tzu playbook is, but it sounds good,

The "playbook" referenced is Sun Tzu's "Art of War", which was written millenia ago, and still as topical today, as when it was written. War never changes, just the tools used to wage it. Basic strategy remains a constant, and that gentleman outlined that constant long before our grandfathers drew their first breath...

No probably about it. Sun Tzu has been studied at every military academy, worldwide for quite some time now. Name any great general, of at least the last three centuries, and I can pretty much guarantee that not only did they study Sun Tzu, thay actively applied his thoughts, which was one of the major reasons they *became* great generals...

This issue is life threatening in itself. I’ve got a young son that at 9 months of age has gone through 11 surgical procedures. Obamacare would condem him to death! NOBODY sets a $ figure on the life of my son. NOBODY is going to doom anyone in my family to death on a cost-benefit analysis worksheet.

Taking the fight to the enemy is FAR from a bonehead move. Grow a pair and stop whinning.
