Jugears Ogabe Nominates Mumia to Head DoJ Civil Rights Division

Not quite. It’s “only” the asshat race-baiting fuckwit who got his death sentence overturned.

Ear Leader might as well have gone all the way.

Now watch as the GOP and the rest of the country takes another obvious jab in the eye from the Marxist cuntmuffin and roll over.

OK, they’re going to issue the usual protests, but beyond that?

Not a damn thing.

Cowards.

Thatisall.

    We should stop calling them the GOP. There’s nothing Grand about them, How about we just call them RINO’s, cowards, spineless, scum, wimps.

    The GOP is a party that conservatives support, not a conservative party.

    I just had a horrible thought, Obama pardons Mumia on his way out the door.

    It’s just so perfectly typical of how that POS works.

    Classic example of “You get what you vote for”.

    How many cop shops around the land are Union Controlled? 60-70-75% ? How many of those shops lockstep marched right out in Nov and pulled the lever for Obama at the behest of their Union Masters?

    Now their “Outraged – Outraged I tell you !!”

    UhHuh…….Forgive me for not taking any sympathy here for the “Protect and Serve” crowds on this one.

    You know … I know some of the long-time residents here don’t like such talk, but I’m going to say it anyway:

    We’re not going to be able to fix this through the ballot box. That system is broken and rigged. The fact that Zero is growing more beligerent in thumbing his nose at the Constitution and those who still hold it in high regard is proof of that. To “fix” all of the damage being done to this nation would require flawless electoral success for the next 12-15 years, followed by legislative steamrolling for another 10-12 after that. Sorry Pollyanna, that just ain’t gonna happen.

    So what, then, can be done proactively?

    The best I’ve been able to get from anyone is to plan for reactive measures once TSHTF, and then hope something better happens before then.

    Is that it?!?!? Is that the best anyone can do? Seriously, not just to stir up shit … but can anyone articulate a plan of action that isn’t “pie in the sky, beat ‘em at the ballot box” or “keep your powder dry”? If not, why?

    Some good reading materials. I also might steer you towards Max Velocity, and the WRSA. Lots of things to ruminate on there.

    Start with those nearest and dearest to you. Get those relationships and needs – physical and emotional – in proper order first. Then move to your friends. Then spread to useful acquaintances. Keep widening the circle of influence. You can’t deal with anything at a national level until you have grown from your roots.

    Local everything, focus on the local. Know your law enforcement. Know your business leaders. Know your school board. Know your school superintendent. You work on converting your COMMUNITY into something that will ignore and resist this crap from Mordor.

    Start small. Work up.

    - One person is a crazy wacko news blurb.

    - One family is a real logistical nightmare that will end poorly for the feds once the courts get finished sifting through your ashes.

    - A group of friends and family is something that get’s national news and is way more attention than they want.

    - A community… now that’s a movement…

    Be a weed.

    Hemp – most of what you point to further illustrates the point I was originally trying to make (but didn’t think through fully until now).

    This is truly a Catch 22. Sitting idly by and prepping isn’t going to stop the whole thing from going to hell in a handbasket. Burying our heads in the sand and thinking that if we just get a little more grassroots going in the political process, then we can turn this all around, is head-in-the-clouds wishful thinking.

    That appears to leave the “if something’s gotta start, we might as well be the ones to get it started” mentality as the only alternative. That is a losing proposition, too. I don’t care how many “undergrounders” think that they are Legion, and that they can organize and win the hearts and minds once they get it started. And don’t feed me that “you just don’t know what/who I know, and what the plans are” bullshit … like Mike Tyson said “Everyone’s got a plan until they get hit in the face.”

    What seems to be needed is a concerted effort – at more than just the blogosphere level – at counter-propogandizing and organizing non-violent civil disobedience. I don’t really hear too many people talking about those kind of plans.

    Pretty much agree with everything you and Hemp have said so far. I have long been an advocate for taking back the institutions and media that the left have monopolized for so long, and doing it from the inside. That’s partly what drove me to accept a teaching position in our local school district, I was working as a consultant and trainer at the district and also volunteering at my kids schools, not only to help the kids but to see just what was going on. I saw enough to want to get involved and did, teaching and advocating at the district level for curriculum changes through participation in advisory boards and such. I wasn’t the only one either, the more I got familiar with things the more people I found that thought like I did. The schools are filled with good people, but the unions and district ingrain an attitude of compliance and toe’ing the line……I broke with that and questioned some union spending of members dues (I never joined the union but still had 80% of the union dues deducted from my pay) on political things that I didn’t support. I had been assured that I could opt out of having my money spent on causes and candidates that I didn’t support, but the union president (who happened to be gay) used the monthly union newsletter to advocate for gay positions and candidates. When I brought this up at a district wide meeting, he and I got into a bit of a heated discussion about this. It wasn’t long after that incident that I started having pay issues, having my pay docked for some “overpayments” that supposedly happened in the past. No one could give me a straight story as to why this happened, so I accepted a full time offer at the college where I was also teaching and told them to shove off. Later on, I found out that I wasn’t the only one with “pay” issues…..

    I’m still active on advisory boards, specifically the curriculum board and marketing board and I have seen a change in what is being presented in the curriculum. That is not just from my efforts, but from business people and others that serve on these boards from all walks of life. So while I can’t advocate from the classroom anymore, I can still do it on the boards…..working for change on the inside.

    We can do this in the universities, and schools, and media centers, and local newspapers…..get inside, encourage others to do likewise and take these things back. It will take some time, but I’m an optimist…..I believe we still have some time, let’s not waste it….get active.

And don’t feed me that “you just don’t know what/who I know, and what the plans are” bullshit … like Mike Tyson said “Everyone’s got a plan until they get hit in the face.”

    That’s the rub, isn’t it?

    There’s the “do nothing and hope for the best”, which is to put it very mildly silly (let me tell you a thing or two about what happens when a whole continent adopts that attitude), that’s one extreme.

    And then there’s the other extreme, the “let’s just start slitting throats and get it over with” which, seriously, none of us want. For one thing, it’s a whole lot less romantic than it sounds, just ask the Founding Fathers. For another, the outcome is far from certain. For yet another, it does entail things like slitting the throats of people you personally know or at least know about (ask the participants on both sides during the War of Northern Aggression just how much fun that is) and, and, and…

    To be sure, it’s cathartic to yell “fuck it all, let’s just get down to business and let the devil take the hindmost, and I’ll be the first to admit the usefulness of cathartic hyperbole. But it’s not a solution. It’s a last ditch effort. It’s the very last thing you want to do. Much like nailing a goblin with a few shots to the face. No matter how justified, there’s nothing fun about it and it leaves scars. If it has to be, then it has to be, but it’s not something to yearn for.

    So what TO do? Heck if I’m an oracle on that. I will say this: Civil disobedience and aiming to misbehave has a fine track record. It made the British Raj unass the Indian subcontinent even though it took a while, but you can’t argue with success.

    Infiltrating the system? Not a Quick Fix, but neither is nuclear energy. How many times have we conservatives with brains said when the progtards roll out “nuclear energy won’t make a difference for at least another decade, even if we started tomorrow” that sure, but you started using that argument forty years ago. If we’d started then, we’d have been energy independent for thirty years now.

    Since when did WE become “if we can’t have our present now, we’ll just take our ball and go home” progtards?

    Not to mention that, ironically, the reason that we’re in the mess we’re in now is that we let the progtards take The Long View while they wandered through the wilderness for decades. Yet now we’re too good to use their own tactics against them?

    “It won’t work?” Is anybody seriously telling me that we can’t accomplish what progtards accomplished?

    No, it won’t turn everything around instantly, it may not even turn it around in time, but is that an excuse for not even beginning to push back? If it fails we can at least say we tried, can’t we?

    Is that worse than a futile Custer’s Last Stand at desperate odds?

    Just thinking out loud here.

    Let’s get to work throwing sand in the vaginas of the leftist swine at every turn, how do you guys think that liberty-minded Russians felt while they spent 3/4 of a fucking century undermining the Soviet system with little hope that they’d see the end themselves? Should they have just given up? Sure, then forget about the end of the Soviet Union, forget about the Berlin Wall becoming rubble and hello Cold War again.

    I am not saying that we should be meek and mild at every turn, some transgressions from the progtard fascists cannot be just ignored. Let’s fight when we must, but in the meantime let’s do all we can to misbehave and make a leftist’s life utterly, fucking miserable.

    And when we or our children or grandchildren finally rub their mental disease out and they wail about the injustice of it all, we can tell them, truthfully, that they taught us very well indeed.

    The problem is that a lot of people have to learn about socialism the hard way. It sounds nice on the outside, but it’s when you get into it that the floaws become apparent, and by then it takes a Herculean effort of not-lazy-and-self-absorbed to get out. Right now, the American people are small-minded, lazy, and self-absorbed for the most part, and the ones that aren’t are busy protecting the rest of us. They [retty much have to be bitten in the ass, HARD. It’s starting to happen with the ACA as people realize what they really signed up for, but we have to use that, like others have said. Remember that a wildfire starts with a single spark in the grass.

    I have believed since I was in college that I would see a revolution in my lifetime, and the more I see, the more I think I’m right.

    Everything in life is a series of small steps sir.

    Did Europe turn to a commie shit-pit overnight? Did the revolutionary war start instantly? Did it take a weekend and two elections for the Prog-nazi’s to jackboot their way through all of our institutions? Or were these events a decades long process that ate away at things slowly over decades?

    I think every rational person here knows the answer to these questions.

    I respectfully disagree with your premise – People are starting to “do things” sir., Folks ARE beginning to fight back. You claim you don’t see any civil disobedience… I know that you are factually incorrect on this point, I’ve SEEN it in action. You want some examples? What sort of civil disobedience are you looking for?

    The tame kind? Go look at the Obamacare subscription numbers sir. We live in a nation of 350+ million, who are now required by law to be neck deep in that shit. Yet… how many paid up and jumped in? Less than 500 thousand. How many “enrolled?” Less than 3 million – most of which signed up for other programs like medicaid. Look at groups like the Tea-party, literature such as Mark Levin’s books, and witness the new media gobbling up market share – such as Brietbart and Glenn Beck’s Blaze.

    All of these things are defiance. Disobedience of those who want us to sit down like good little peasants and eat a mouth full of their shit.

    Not enough?

    How about some “non-felonious” Civil Disobedience then. You DID see the Barrycades getting piled up in front of Emperor Jugg-ears’s palace right? The folks ignoring or tossing the “do-not-enter signs on the parking lots?” Veterans ignoring edicts to stay away from their own memorials? Weddings being held defiantly on Closed national Parks?

    Still more eh? Tough customer.

    Ok then… What about the blatantly illegal? Plenty of stories in the news if you look for them – Bob Owens has been covering a good number for a few years now, as has Hershal and Ol’ Remus over at their lairs. I sure do notice a lot of stuff out there suffering continuity of existence failures – things that your average rowdy kids and street thugs don’t typically “vandalize.” But remember this – when it comes to what I like to call “black hat patriotism” folks won’t exactly be out there advertising what they are getting up to.

    Do you think some retired guy that started fisting uncle sugar on his taxes is going to jump out on the NSA bought and owned internet to proclaim it? Do you think some old rancher in northern Montana who’s ignoring every edict they toss his way, plans to write an op-ed to the local rag titled “SCREW YOU EPA?” Do you think some kid in Iowa is going to brag about everything he does with groups like Anonymous to throw a spanner in the works? Or maybe a young lady who’s been taking classes with Mosby,, and might be working to form a real honest to goodness militia of her closest friends and family – is she going to get on facebook and help FedGovCo spy on her any more than they already are? Or maybe another lad, who’s just returned to the sandbox, with a new little one on the way to worry about, who’s passing on knowledge to others the overlords spent a lot of money teaching him – is that fellow going to scream from the rafters at the top of his lungs “Come GET ME!!!”

    No sir. No they won’t. For very good, and very obvious reasons.

    As Ms. Wolfe said:

    “We are at that awkward stage, where it’s too late to fix the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.”
    - Claire Wolfe

    It’s not the proper time yet to do anything more than provoke, prepare, build a foundation, poke the fedgoons in the eye, and be bad serfs. Civil disobedience is happening all over the place. This very SITE is an act of civil disobedience and defiance.

    Why not? Well, for one, there is not yet the support, infrastructure, and the will for getting to any “real business” yet. Secondly, the “real business” is horrible shit, and nobody is eager to get about doing it. Finally, things have to get worse before it’s justified. People need to hurt, and hurt bad. They need to feel the real pain of their inaction and gullibility. The masses need to have it explained, through tangible agony how fucked this entire system truly us. Currently, the big lie is still being propped up, through deficit spending, taxation, and money printing. People can still be comfortable, fat, and entertained.

    Pain brings growth. As the lies and tyranny unravels – and it will eventually, the only argument is one of time-line – more and more will hurt, and then you’ll see very dramatic things begin to change, for both good and ill. But until the pain is serious, you won’t see action. I wish it were different. I wish we could act BEFORE the sewer pipes are clogged, and your toilet has turned into a shit-fountain sputtering in the middle of your bathroom… but we’ve always been like this – since our founding. generally speaking, we as citizens of the United States let things simmer, fester and procrastinate until the issue E*X*P*L*O*D*E*S.

    Been that way forever. The good book says life is a circle, and the history books seem to bear that out.

    “The Americans Will Always Do the Right Thing…After They Have Exhausted All the Alternatives.”
    - Sir Winston Churchill

    People come here and basically tell FedGov to fuck off. You might argue this does nothing, but, you’d be incorrect in my opinion.

    For one, the internet is to us as the printing press and pamphlets were to the founders and colonial era Americans. Yes this beast is entertaining – and it’s an outlet for frustrations – but I’d remind you it’s no different in principle than sitting in Ye Olde New England Tavern with Benevolus’s new flyer, fuming with your companions over the latest British outrage. The insane expenses the government is going to in order to infiltrate and collect data on the web serve only to confirm this notion.

    Secondly, folks are learning. They are getting plenty of ideas, learning tricks, discovering how the Orcs work, gaining awareness of a new abuse, or being reminded of an older usurpation, forgotten in the war and tear of eking out a living. The web is educational and enlightening.

    Next, people are having their notions echoed, confirmed, challenged, and refined, by contact with others. For example:
    - No one soul can think of everything – they will miss details, or have their mind opened to different options.
    - Patriots needs to know there are like-minded souls out there, that they and theirs are not alone in the wilderness.
    - Ideals must be challenged to be defended properly as well – what better forum? A person must learn to repel every sort of assault, from the moronic to brilliant.

    Places like this are the debate halls of modern Americans. Ideas are attacked, defended, fabricated and enhanced.

    Finally, communities on the internet foster direct connections. Many of the people writing here have met each other in person, joined by ideals and common interests. These are alliances – comrades in arms, goals and mindset. When someone here is hurt, or down and out, money is gathered and delivered. When a soul is taken, sympathy and help flows those left behind. These are bonds, and the difference, in my opinion, between a keyboard and and a quill pen are zilch.

    So, “things” are happening, there is defiance, there is disobedience, there is push-back. But you NEED to understand, that no movement occurs instantly. You do not add water ad get an instant new government, or an instant revolution, or fix the destruction of a society that’s been 100+ years in the making with the wave of a hand.

    The United States government was designed to be slow and deliberative. The progressives understood the nature of the system better than the conservatives, and started the sluggish process of co-opting it over more than a century ago. Do you think we can do better faster? Or at all?

    Resistance is a sand-pile that grows and cascades, one grain at a time. Weather you’ve lost all hope in the “system” and are focused on the gamble of replacing it, or believe that you need to “take it back” from the Statists controlling it, working to those ends is not an undertaking to be resolved quickly. It is a battle of decades ahead of us.

    _____________________________________________________________

    On to the next point – You believe there is little to no counter-propagandizing going on. That’s a strange notion in my opinion – one I don’t see matching the reality of the situation.

    Every time I load this page, I see thousands of words that could legitimately be called nothing but propaganda! Misha is a MASTER of the art, and almost daily the man razor-cuts into Prog-Nazi’s with a slasher smile from ear to ear. Mike Hendrix, Chris Muir and David Burge have made careers out “bone-shattering ridicule.”

    What? You say we don’t control the big Media outlets? Why bother! They’re dying! As the Mainstream media collapses, Drudge, Instapundit, Free Republic, Brietbart, The Blaze, PJ Media, (and hundreds more!), gain larger and larger market shares. The newspapers are failing, ad-revenue crumbling… yet Limbaugh, Levin, Hannity, Beck, and Savage dominate radio, taking their message to an ever growing army of millions over the airwaves and now onto the internet.

    Our message is propagating, and it’s effective in convincing people.

    Why is it 63% of Americas believe Global Warming is bullshit – how did they come to THAT conclusion? It certainly didn’t come from the government controlled media, schools, or newspapers. The idea came from conservative propaganda, conservative media, and conservative thinkers, who got their message through despite the commies having locked down the legacy media.

    Not enough? How about Gun Control? It’s now a political POX to screw with guns – even in the face of a good number of highly visible public shootings. The DNC – this very instant – IS BEGGING Bloomturd to stop with his crusade against firearms. they’re pleading with him,=… on their hands and knees… to please…. please…. just… back off – before he destroys the lot of them anywhere more than 50 miles from an ocean.

    The government and it’s appendages barrage people with propaganda – and in the case of Fast and Furious even tried to “create the tragedy” to justify the legislation. Is it working? If not, WHY not? Perhaps maybe, we conservatives have some pretty wicked propaganda of our own deployed?

    We evil right-wingers can read Alinsky, we know how to ridicule – we’d prefer to keep things civil, but if they want to serve…. turn-about is proing to be a wickedly cold bitch. When appropriate, our propagandists fashion mockery and lacerating wit into a spear – which we then stuff right up the Prog-Nazi’s ass. Metaphorically speaking.

    ___________________________________________________________________________________________

    Finally, you mention the futility of prepping and bunkering on – which, from my perspective, is a misunderstanding of the situation on your part. Self reliance isn’t the destination after all. It is a step in the process. A way-point.

    Sufficient people cannot be easily coerced. They can’t be quickly starved into submission, black-mailed into compliance, or forced by necessity into the “loving arms” of our taskmasters.

    If the king doesn’t fill your coffer with gold, and you don’t eat from his table, exercising power over you then becomes an exercise of naked force – unmasked tyranny. There is justification and vindication in fighting against or disobeying agression. If the king must exert control on a self sufficient person, he is left with only one weapon – and it’s an implement that reveals his heart to all willing eyes. The disobedience of the self-reliant creates sympathy, and makes forced compliance difficult, for no King has unlimited resources to project his power, nor unlimited political capital to sell the notion.

    “Prepping” is first and foremost is about teaching, learning, and reinforcing responsibility and foresight. Before even daring to take a stand against the government, or climbing the long march through institutions seeking a coup, a person must have their own shit in order.

    Imagine a series of circles if you will.

    You inhabit the center. You must master providing for your own needs and consumption. Having handled that, you begin to spread outward like a creeper. Envelope family next, expanding your ability to plan and meet their emotional and physical needs. Once a person has created security and stability in that arena, grow outwards more, pull friends into orbit. Help them understand and learn accountability, self-reliance, and responsibility. Teach, encourage, help them replicate your model – or allow them to improve on it! Continue outward, always encroaching, always working to propagate.

    What you’re doing is creating a self-replicating galaxy of “solar systems” – a COMMUNITY – who can’t be easily intimidated, who’ll balk at the sniveling of the government weasels. You’re beginning the process of disarming Mordor by seeing to your needs – and multiplying the impact by teaching others.

    Laying in sensible provisions is not the port of call sir. It’s the first stop in a globe-spanning adventure. You need to have your kit ready at a personal and local level before you can step up and spit in Leviathan’s face – or make a play for it’s throne. If you can’t prove to yourself and others that you’re capable of overseeing and providing for the needs of your community, how do you expect to be taken seriously at a national level?

    LOCAL LOCAL LOCAL!!!!!

    Know what’s going on nationally. Be OUTRAGED. Makes your voice heard. But your efforts need to FIRST be on the one, the blood, your companions, and then your community. That is the first bulwark against tyranny. Both for those looking to resist and those determined to steal back the system.

    Get to work sir.

    Beck Predicts Massive Changes for Talk Radio: We Have ‘Had It’ With the GOP
    Erica Ritz

    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/01/10/beck-predicts-massive-changes-for-talk-radio-we-have-had-it-with-the-gop/

    Glenn Beck on Friday predicted massive changes in talk radio over the coming years, saying that as far as he knows, the titans of the industry have all “had it” with the excuses of the GOP.

    The fiery segment was a response to a caller on Beck’s radio program Thursday, who said Beck needs to stop “poisoning the well” for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie because conservatives may have to vote for him in 2016.

    “Anyone else who feels this way, I want you to listen carefully,” Beck told his audience. “This isn’t the show for you. Let me tell you what we do on this show. We tell the truth as we know it. It’s not our job to make sure the Republicans get elected at just any cost. We will tell you what we truly believe.

    Beck said he believes people like Thursday’s caller will be “absolutely shocked” over the next few years, because he is “not the only one who’s had it with the GOP.”

    “Sean Hannity has had it with the GOP,” Beck said. “Mark Levin has had it with the GOP. The biggest, quote, ‘shill of the GOP,’ as they have always liked to say, Rush Limbaugh, has had it with the GOP … So if you’re looking for shills for a political party, you’re probably going to have to shake talk radio.”
    - Glenn Beck

    He’s right in my opinion. I don’t exist to make sure the “GOP” can stay in power. If you are a constitutional conservative, then i’ll vote for you. If not, set yourself on fire and burn to ashes for all I care. Electing another John Mcweenie or Susan Collins does us zero good.

    In fact it’s worse to have traitors in our midst than enemies standing as a legion before is.

    And honestly, yeah, I think in many ways we’d be worse off had Willard won.

    For one, I don’t believe for one GODDAMNED SECOND that Willard Fillmoure Romneycare would have done SHIT about Obamacare. Not for one moment do I buy that he was out to refute his life’s work. He had zero intention of removing it from the moment the establishment nimrods picked him. His own words before and after his loss have only solidified this belief in my mind. His sudden “ideological change” when Romneycare went into campaign mode rings as truthful to me as his ridicule-worthy pronouncements with regards to his “storied history as an outdoorsman and hunter….”

    …or as lover of NASCAR… :em05:

    Secondly, I believe we’d have had gun control forced up our asses had Romney won. The only reason those squishy bastards in DC stood up to the demonrats over Sandy Hook is because they HAD to pretend to oppose Juggears. Romney’s got a proven history as a statist gun-grabber… the son of a bitch would have rubber stamped all manner of intolerable usurpations, and the feckless GOP moderates would have walked across the isle - for the fucking children.

    Of course, the next thing brought up is supreme court judges, to which I simply laugh my ass off. Oh yes, please, tell me again, how ever will we deal without “rock ribbed constitutionalists” like John-Hanghimbytheneckuntildead-Roberts, or the “illustrious” Anthony Kennedy…. and then there was Justice David Souter…. yeah… pretty much now swayed by the plea at all.

    Finally, even the near worthless resistance to the statist agenda we’re seeing now would be muted had Willard Fillmoure Romneycare managed to convince a few million people more he wasn’t a Democrat in all but name.

    Understand – the republicans have to at least pretend to fight when dealing with a polarizing Ideologue like President Drone-Kill. With the cover of “GENERIC GOP CANDIDATE” sitting in the oval office – especially when said president is a Global Warming Felcher – all manner of horrible regulatory statist shit is going to get rubber stamped with the bobble headed approval of every RINO and all the RINO moutpieces, like Hot Air, Fox News, the WSJ, the Weekly Standard, and Rove’s various outfits.

    The damage we’re seeing is not coming from Obama directly. It’s blossoming because the moonbats have co-opted the entire damn regulatory state, from top to BOTTOM. The amok system is an independent monster that runs over liberty and steals outr wealth pretty much regardless of anything the “elected” muppets try to do about it. Without such an obvious demagogue as Barry Hussein to place face-time against, I am almost frighted what the likes of Lindsey Goober would be getting up to – completely unnoticed.

    I am willing to weaponize my vote. If the republicans won’t give me the candidate I want, then they can get fucked. And MILLIONS of folks just like me said the same damn thing last election. If RePubicans keep destroying all the conservatives, I won’t play the role of battered wife.

    I’ll vote to take them with me.

    Fuck’em – and it’s becoming blatantly obvious that so many folks feel the same way that the GOP is going to have to acquiesce, be beaten into submission, or die along with the country.

    Had a guy stop by the workplace looking for signatures to get on the ballot for state rep. I looked at the guy in the eye and said, “Are you a Republican?” His response was “yes.” Something in his response prompted me to ask, “Are you a REAL Republican?” His response (and it twists my mind to this day) was “I’m a Republican but not a Conservative.”

    The reason I relate this little tale is to segue way my agreement with Hemp. I wont be voting for any ole “republican” they foist up there ever again. Ultimately I think the 2016 Presidential election pales in impact to 2014. If there is no substantial movement in the Senate vis a vie balance of power, I think 2016 will be irrelevant. In the mean time I’ll be preparing my battlespace

    OT…. I was thinking, that if one is allowed to gather enough signatures to place a item on a ballot like for say… Marijuana legalization, couldn’t the same tactic be used to get term limits put into place? The legislators themselves wont bring it to the table.

    Entertainers – and that’s what these fellow are – survive by knowing the mood of the mob, and giving them what they want. By retreating from the GOP big-wigs, they tell us a great deal about the mood of “we the people.”

    I don’t trust Beck, Limbaugh, Hannity, Savage and others to honestly relay news, or to be trustworthy guardians of the republic. But I DO trust their ability to read the mood of their listeners, and pander to it.

    I don’t give to the party, either state or national, I give to candidates and that includes the candidate for sheriff. Local elections matter more in my book than the national one, but that doesn’t diminish the importance of the vote there.

    I spent over three decades fighting for what I believe to right in a courtroom. For decades I maxed donations to the Republican party when my brother was working phones with his wife. I provided free consulting and representation to local people I agreed with.

    Not very much changed. So I refocused. Start over, at the ground level.

    In pursuit of that, I bankrolled my nephews and niece’s college, and now that they’re have children, I’ll be paying for private and Catholic schools for them, so they can dodge the indoctrination that is the public education system – since teachers such as yourself are an extreme minority, as you undoubtedly well know. I’ll pay for their college or tech schools too, try to keep them out of some mind-rotting festering socialist dump if I can.

    I’ve paid for our families BOL, a series of cabins for everyone to rally to in case things get… pear shaped. I’ve helped out my brother when his ranch almost went under in the 90s. I provided a home for my own mother when father died in 87. I’ve used the fruits of my labors to keep the government’s filthy hands off my family.

    I regret not being able to hold a relationship together with a woman. I regret not getting laid a HELL of a lot more when I had opportunities.

    I don’t regret how I’ve lived my life, or the things I’ve done and fought for. And all of the things I will continue to pursue.

    I spent over three decades fighting for what I believe to right in a courtroom. For decades I maxed donations to the Republican party when my brother was working phones with his wife. I provided free consulting and representation to local people I agreed with.

    Not very much changed. So I refocused. Start over, at the ground level.

    In pursuit of that, I bankrolled my nephews and niece’s college, and now that they’re have children, I’ll be paying for private and Catholic schools for them, so they can dodge the indoctrination that is the public education system – since teachers such as yourself are an extreme minority, as you undoubtedly well know.

    noble efforts all, I commend you for that good work.

    Hemp, you’d be surprised how many conservative teachers there are in the school system….nowhere near a majority, but more than you think. There is a culture of fear and intimidation that dominates the school system, you toe the union and district line or you will pay a price. Many will tell you their political ideaology in private but are reluctant to voice it publicly, I wasn’t one of those, I felt I had just as much of a right to let my opinion be know as anyone else and I ended up paying a price for that as I countered the union on some political stances.

    I never joined the union, but still had to pay dues at an 80% rate of what members paid. There was an opt out clause in our contract that specified that I wanted my dues withheld from political causes that I objected to. The local Antioch Bible Church, headed by the late Ken Hutcherson held their services in the auditorium of one of the high schools in the district, they had reached that agreement with the school and district and all was well, until Hutch came out against gay marriage. The teachers union president is a very vocal gay and used his position to advocate for Hutch to move his church off of school grounds. He wrote about it in the monthly union newsletter calling for members to protest and demand the removal of the church. I raised the point at a district meeting, asking the president if out dues went to the printing and distribution of that newsletter, when he affirmed that they did, I told him that he violated my contract by using my dues to push his political agenda. It ended up in a stand up shouting match between him and me. Not too long after that, I started having money withheld from my pay, the reason given was that I was overpaid earlier in the year. When the withholding kept going on, I met with district officials three times to figure out what was going on, getting a different story three times….each time ending with the question “have you talked to your union rep about this?” When I said I wasn’t a member that pretty much closed the conversation and any support I was seeking. Luckily for me, I was offered a full time teaching position at the college where was teaching and still teach. I took that job and told the district to shove off.

    One of the things I did back then and continue to do now is serve on district advisory boards with teachers and community people. One of the biggest things we do is look over general curriculum and make changes where necessary……we have some influence there, and some changes for the better have been made. It’s a good way to get involved, and good way to get a peek at what happens on the inside of the public education system…..it will open your eyes.

    Interesting.

    I’ll freely admit, I am no expert in Washington state labor code, but it sounds like your school district was putting itself in a highly actionable position. Someone more specialized in that area could have probably knocked a sizable dent in their coffers.

    Naturally, I suspect it would be the kids and teachers that would’ve felt the sting, sadly, which may have been why you chose to eat it.

    I considered taking action, but the offer the college gave me more than made up for it…..three times the pay and stable benefits.
    I was sad to leave the kids, and had no gripe against the school except that the principal (who was a district toadie) didn’t back me like he should have.

    yeah, any action that I took would have impacted the kids and my fellow teachers. The program that I taught fell apart after I left, I was the only one in the district teaching what I taught and drew kids from all the different high schools in the district, I piloted a similar high school program offered at the college where I teach and that one is going strong. I left it a year ago due to family reasons and some health reasons, all better now, still teaching on a part time basis and things are well. I now have more time to get back with the local Tea Party chapter that I used to hang with.

    Hey Light – it looks like this has been mentioned a couple of times already in this thread, but given how apropos it is of our previous little back and forth….what the hell.

    Just to review:

    As much as Obongo the Kenyon Klingon Fucker™ and the First Wookie want to usurp the Constitution he’s not about to stomp on a Governors prerogative. They guard their turf jealously and they are not about to yield it, even to Obongo.

    I think a lot of us are missing the problem here that it is our fellow Americans voting in these sniveling, communist shitcanoes. We can talk about taking back the media all we want… and spreading the message… and promoting liberty candidates… All these things are good. But the real problem here is our fellow Americans. Why else do we have such an appalling incumbency rate in this country? Why else does Congress have an approval rating in the single digits, and yet, the majority of these fuckbats keep getting elected?

    The problem is our fellow Americans. They’re ignorant, barely educated and cowardly. They’ve been bred like this. What do we do about that???

    BTW – whoever called Christie “Krispy Kreme Christie” made me LOL.

    Anyone read about the Department of InJustice’s latest brilliant, yet racist idea? Now they are sending out letters telling schools they they need to consider racial quotas when disciplining students.

    Damn. If I were to clip and comment, this comment would go on forever. LOADS of good stuff here, and if the general public would be exposed to these thoughts we’d have no worries at all. Had there been a “like” button, every single one of these comments would have had one more vote to the good. I don’t want what appears to be inevitable. I really don’t. The only way to prevent it would be an absolutely overwhelming vote that totally flushed this whole toilet in one go. The only alternative looks like the reset button, ctrl/alt/delete. Pounding head against wall only feels good when you stop.

    It seems to me that … through the series of comments from Hemp, Jay, and Nicki … that quite a few salient points have been raised here.

    If … IF … we are to keep this whole thing from going off the rails, and make change happen within the boundaries of the system as it is currently rigged, then we need to keep in mind:

    1) Half, if not more, of our “fellow” voters are bred and indoctrinated to be dumb as shit, to swallow whatever lies are fed them, and to pull the lever for whoever it is that promises them more goodies and freebies than the other guy;

    2) We have to change that by taking back the educational system – eventually – and find a way to introduce the concept of critical thought to 100M+ automatons;

    3) We cannot continue to support the current “representation” that is fed to us as our only alternative. The whole “we’ve got to take back the Rep. party ‘cuz a third party solution is a disaster” econo-size can of bullshit is just that – bullshit. Look at the “best” solutions that we can come up with here … they are all “long-game” in focus. A third party solution is exactly what is needed – cut the conservative funding and support away from the RINO party, and it will wither and die on the vine … eventually joining the Dems. An independent conservative party will then be free of the mush-mouths and milquetoasts, and thereby be able to eloquently articulate conservative/libertarian principles and solutions, and choose representatives who actually act upon those. 20 – 30 years from now, the “Republican” party will be remembered – post mortem – as that fools that let the leftists and Marxists nearly ruin our country.

    Or … we stock up on MRE’s and brass, and wait to react.
