Time for any people speaking out publicly against Osama’s health care takeover to start carrying tasers. I’d love to see one of these purple-teeshirt SEIU goons writhing on the ground on YouTube as some little old retired lady teaches him some manners...

“Keep a weather eye out for the increased presence of Purple Shirts. Soon it will be the appearance of the old tried and true baseball-bat-and-axe-handle method of persuasion. Civility is in a nose dive. Really sad.”

one great comment.

Personally, I am doing a one man boycott of all union produced goods.

If I needed to buy a new car/truck, it would not be GM or Ford, but Toyota or Nissan. So my wife and I will look for the union label, and if it is there, the item goes back on the shelf. Also, told my wife NOT to renew her AARP membership.

Done with supporting those who support socialism/communism.

PLEASE CHECK THIS OUT!! AUGUST 22, 2009

With so many now cowarding out of Town Hall Meetings, here is an opportunity to take a Town Hall to them!! TeaPartiers are organizing to protest at local offices on August 22!! (heck, I wouldn’t be opposed to residences, if you can find them;)

August 22: Join the nationwide Recess Rally; Dems performing CPR on Obamacare

By Michelle Malkin

We have the momentum to kill Obamacare.

The congressional recess period is critical.

I’ve joined many grass-roots groups in a nationwide coalition holding a Recess Rally on August 22, 2009.

The Tea Party revolt and the grass-roots counterinsurgency against the health care takeover have taken congressional offices locally and Washington, D.C. by storm.

Now, more than ever: Crank it up, spread the truth, raise your voices, and tell Washington…

Hands Off Our Health Care.

Go to Recess Rally to get organized.”

Here is the link for Recess Rally...find your locale and join in on LOCAL teaparties against Obamacare!!!

http://recessrally.com/

Also, DIMs aren’t the ONLY congresscritters on RECESS!!
I hope that we can all encourage our local (R) leadership to hold Town Halls, like Vitter did, to get the TRUTH out to those uninformed and listening only to MSM.
DIMS should NOT be the only leadership out there trying to get their (lies) message out!!! LET’S GET THE TRUTH OUT!!!

Sen. David Vitter Welcomes Angry Mob to Health Care Forum

SEIU President Andy Stern has summed up his philosophy as, “We prefer to use the power of persuasion, but if that doesn’t work, we use the persuasion of power.”

...Sure reads like a confession to criminal conspiracy to *me*!

I formally invite Andy Stern or that other union thug to come to my home and use power to persuade me that fascism is a virtue.

They will have to pick their locations carefully. For example Missouri is a right to carry state. Bringing an axe handle, or an axe for that matter, to a gunfight doesn't end well. And the rules for self defense are clear. He comes at you with a weapon he is fair game. Now in Chicago, Detroit, or LA where they completely control the cops they could get away with it. The guy defending himself would be at fault to a Democrat DA.

I do worry that this is going to end up in armed rebellion and open civil war. A few years ago that kid of talk was for sci-fi writers and as a punch line for jokes. Now it is becoming a real possibility. I fear the left is so foolish that the do not realize that everybody looses a civil war.

Hopefully, this is waking folks up to the fact organizations such as AARP are simply an arm of the Democratic party. When push comes to shove, the public is realizing who the good guys and bad guys are, and exposing the corrupt media.

The unions have shown themselves tO be our mortal enemy and a threat to the Republic. I, for one, will do everything I can to avoid giving support to unions in the future. First step is to boycott all union-made products.

Look For The Union Label... And BOYCOTT!

Remember when Al Gore LIED to the American public and claimed that his mom sang him to sleep with the 1970s jingle “LOOK FOR THE UNION LABEL...”

It is common knowledge that the Obama brownshirts are using Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals tactics to silence opposition. But, is it effective? We should not use their tactics, but our own. We have our own Book.

If one SEIU thug hits one of us, turn the other cheek. For if we hit back, that will be on the news forever. If they make ugly, personal verbal attacks, respond with a kind word and a soft voice. Don't give them any ammo to use against our side. Pour hot coals on their head.

You will be painted as the aggressor in the enemedia. Your life, your reputation, your job, your family will be crushed and ruined. Sarah Palin's travails will look like a day at the amusement park compared to what they will do to you if you defend yourself with deadly force against an attack by a purple shirted thug.

Not to say you shouldn't do it, but at least understand what you'd be signing up for.
