    Thugs

    Thugs

    I have refrained from using that word so far, but the conduct of this mob towards one of Wisconsin’s Republican State Senators who was trying to enter the Capitol building is a reflection of a lawless mentality which has been rampant in Madison, and aided and abetted by some members the police unions.

    Kudos to the Democratic legislator who intervened to protect the Senator from the crowd and to keep the peace until Capitol police could rescue him.

    Right out of "Monty Python". I mean what kind of protesters chant "Peaceful protest! Peaceful protest!"?

    "Brought to you by Generic Ice Cream, the ice cream recommended by 4 out of 5 average clueless people who don't know why they buy ice cream."

    Isn't there some minimum distance they have to be to prevent obstructing walkways and fire exits? Also why are there so many South Africa soccer fans playing their plastic horns. Its just as annoying as I remember from world cup.

    Not sure if you saw this one, but here's a union thug with a real serious assault that happened in Atlanta. It's starting to make it's way around, but they seem to be picking up a copy with really horrible audio.

    And here's a good shot of the cop refusing to detain him:

    The mob chanting at the Republican on his way into the WI statehouse wasn't a bunch of thugs, just an angry mob. Angry because they feel powerless. Many people who support them also feel powerless. Like the 'tea party' people have felt powerless. The real issue is who has the power? It isn't teachers. Haven't you seen the growth in income disparity charts? The cost of the Bush tax cuts? The disgusting bonuses paid out by companies we bailed out? One reported to be $5B? Regular democrats (and there and tens of millions of them) are concerned by a regressive income tax, concentrations of wealth (and so power), consolidated media, and an apparent commitment by Republicans to sustain and even widen this income disparity. You don’t think there’s anything to these concerns?

    I’ve seen some posts on this blog claiming that democrats don’t work and are ‘on the dole.’ That’s just silly (or ignorant).

    I read the linked content on Gupta and Raj…good that they were caught. I hope the money is recovered. I knew Gupta had donated to the Clinton library. Never did like that.

    I love the term "regressive income tax". The "laurie definition" of that is when everyone pays the same percentage of their income. See, in "laurie world", everyone is entitled, just some are more entitled than others.

    No,laurie. Thugs is what they are. Imagine yourself in his position. Thugs and bullies. You side doesn't like bullies, remember? And powerless? For most of my lifetime the progressives (both parties) have held sway. Academia and the media are full of them, telling us we are racist, sexist, homophobic and make too much money. They tell us how much smarter they are, but rather than debate the issue, call us names. "The science is settled, the debate is over" when there was never a debate (or science, IMHO) at all.

    No, laurie. You missed where the power really resides. We are just trying to even things up a little.
