America loves a winner!


Wisconsin’s public sector unions are ramping up hysteria in anticipation of the recall elections on Tuesday. A reported $15 million, most of it from out of state, has been spent on behalf of the left-wing candidates in the recall races.

Yesterday, Scott Walker opened the Wisconsin State Fair, as is traditionally done by the governor. But the unions couldn’t let their hyperpartisanship rest even for fifteen minutes, and they put on a disgraceful display:

Which seems to be par for the course, with these worthless pieces of shit, dirt bag thug union types.

How much out-of-state money is being spent by the Kochsuckers on the right?

And how much state money is being spent on the state fair?

And why do you hate the First Amendment so much? Why do you want to take away the rights of the people to peaceably assemble in order to seek from their governor a redress of grievances?

You JUST posted a thread about how bad it is to hate the First Amendment, and here you are hating it because you hate those speaking out.

And of course, in your ever-civil tone, you also called every one of them "pieces of shit".

Not that you ever lump people together or anything.

Right?



Right?

Actually, the bulk of my reply dealt specifically with the First Amendment.

You conveniently ignored it. Like you conveniently ignore the Constitution whenever and wherever possible.


YOU brought up "out-of-state" money, so I asked if there MIGHT be out-of-state money on the other side as well. Seems you don't want anyone looking into that "distraction", eh? How very... expected of you. ;)

I posted 2 articles on union thugs in Wisconsin.

I said nothing about out of state money.

Again, you fail.

The articles I posted, made mention , as a side bar issue, but since it's clear you didn't bother w/ the links, you didn't read the articles, and then tried to make a red herring of ' out-of-state money ' as the focal point of the topic.

Again, union thugs disrupt State Fair, and union thugs disrupt Special Olympics.

Stay focused. I know you'd love to divert attention from the reality of what union goons are doing in Wisconsin, but that's what you do.

By the way, estimates of the out-of-state money being poured into the state by right-wing extremist groups runs to $18 million.

No wonder you didn't want to talk about it! ;)

It's the first thing in your post. If you didn't write it yourself, shouldn't you put it in quotes? Otherwise, it looks like you're trying to take credit for someone else's words (that's called "plagiarism").

That's a pretty epic FAIL on your part.


As to what the citizens of Wisconsin are doing in protesting Scott Walker, you again seem to have very large issues with THE PEOPLE actually using their First Amendment rights.

Why do you hate the First Amendment? And why won't you answer that question?

State Fair/Raw video
Witnesses describe mobs, some people claim racially-charged attacks

By The WTMJ News Team
CREATED 5:21 AM - UPDATED: 9:32 AM

WEST ALLIS - Witnesses tell Newsradio 620 WTMJ and TODAY'S TMJ4 of a mob of young people attacking innocent fair-goers at the end of the opening night of State Fair, with some callers claiming a racially-charged scene.

Milwaukee Police confirmed there were assaults outside the fair.

Witnesses' accounts claim everything from dozens to hundreds of young black people beating white people as they left State Fair Thursday night.

Authorities have not given official estimates of the number of people involved in the attacks.

"It looked like they were just going after white guys, white people," said Norb Roffers of Wind Lake in an interview with Newsradio 620 WTMJ. He left the State Fair Entrance near the corner of South 84th Street and West Schlinger Avenue in West Allis.

"They were attacking everybody for no reason whatsoever."

"It was 100% racial," claimed Eric, an Iraq war veteran from St. Francis who says young people beat on his car.

"I had a black couple on my right side, and these black kids were running in between all the cars, and they were pounding on my doors and trying to open up doors on my car, and they didn't do one thing to this black couple that was in this car next to us. They just kept walking right past their car. They were looking in everybody's windshield as they were running by, seeing who was white and who was black. Guarantee it."

No one from the TEA party disrupted any events. There were civic minded people, politely asking their Representatives and Senators questions at town hall meetings, but no angry mobs. Those are reserved for union thugs and democrats.

Your twisted definition of the word 'hypocrisy' is curious. Where does one learn such nonsense ?

Of what benefit does it serve to disrupt a NON political event, like the Special Olympics ?

Answer me that one, if you can, and dispense w/ the juvenile name calling try not to dodge the issue.

I bet you can't. Prove me wrong.

I are?


Actually, I cribbed that particular tactic from you, back when you claimed that everybody acting unruly at the town hall meetings were "union thugs and left-wing plants", NOT the tea-bagging idiots who were really the ones acting out and being uncivil.

And of course, you never provided an ounce of proof, either.

Just as you can't provide an ounce of proof that a bunch of unruly black people in a parking lot are the "union thugs" that you claim disrupted the state fair.

Not that you've ever needed a valid reason to hate black people, of course.

One can't disprove a negative, so add that to your list of fail too.

That goes for pretty much your entire post, so I'll not waste my time further.

All I did was post the report. I made no comment, other than more news from Wisconsin.

You filled in the rest, with your own bigotry. As you are want to do.

So you admit that you can't prove that these AREN'T right-wing plants.

And of course, we do have documentation of people telling the right-wingers in Wisconsin - including Scott Walker, of course - to do just this kind of thing, in order to create an incident. Hell, one right-wing government employee even suggested Walker get shot to phony up some sympathy!

So no, I really don't put any of these antics past them.

- Get the word out ? Obviously, if you want to be seen as a heartless bunch of assholes, by all means, disrupt away. But don't be surprised when there's public blow back.

- No offer of $ was connected w/ that bet, so i fail to see what 'pay up' is suppose to mean. You stated the obvious, 'to get the word out', but I was hoping for more.

Absolutely insane revisionist history.

Don't you guys GET IT? I keep hoping if I can just get through to you guys, we can stop letting his game take over threads and actually HAVE discussions. But he does such an excellent job of distracting you, I'm losing hope of it ever happening. Obviously anyone can post anything, I'm not trying to "stifle" you, just wake you up to how well he manipulates you and gets you to respond to HIM, over and over, rather than anything else.

So. Ignoring him myself, I'll offer the following:
Quote:

RNC chair Reince Priebus, a former chair of the Wisconsin Republican Party, says there's no need for national political reporters to try and glean anything about the 2012 elections from the state Senate recall fight underway in his home state, where Democrats seem to have the momentum. http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2011/08/rnc-chair-pay-no-attention-
to-the-wisconsin-recalls-national-reporters.php
love it: "Don't look at them! Don't look at them! Nothing to see here, move along!"
Quote:

He added that even though some of the key issues on the ballot in the coming weeks in his home state are "a similar debate to what we're having in the country," the "the localized nature of it doesn't allow it to be analogous to the 2012 election."
.....
In one of the first ballot tests of the race last month, Democrats won big. Democrats and their allies have been running hard on a message of Republican overreach in Wisconsin, following the epic standoff between Democrats and GOP Governor Soctt Walker (R) over labor rights earlier this year. That message has extended into the nationalized fight over health care and other spending priorities, with Democrats raising big money and racking up polling successes off ads like this one. (Ad, and more, at http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2011/08/rnc-chair-pay-no-attention-
to-the-wisconsin-recalls-national-reporters.php
to spending, it's kind of a moot point:
Quote:

An unprecedented amount of money is being poured into the Badger State from outside groups on both sides of the aisle.
.....
Political science professor at St. Norbert College Charley Jacobs agrees: "It feels like a general election campaign at the end of October. It has been non-stop. Even though some of the candidates have raised a lot of money, most of the ads are from outside groups."
.....
"I think the money battle is remarkably close," McCabe said, referring to both candidates and outside groups. "With interest groups…based on what we are seeing, there is a very slight edge to Republican groups, but not by much." More at http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/30-million-pouring-influence-wisconsin-
recall-elections/story?id=14235471&page=2

So that puts THAT to rest, for me at least. Typical politics; both sides spending tons to win. No surprise there.

As to provocateurs, there's evidence it might be INCITED violence. There is DEFINITE evidence of tampering:
Quote:

Walker wanted a Koch-funded group, Americans for Prosperity (AFP), to step in and help the Republican legislators who sided with him—-even in the face of massive opposition from their constituents.

Now that Wisconsin has reached the "more long-term" moment of which Walker spoke in that February call, AFP is all in.

Next Tuesday, six of those Republican state senators face recall elections.

And what is Americans for Prosperity doing?

This week, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported: “In recent days, the conservative group Americans for Prosperity has sent out absentee ballot applications to voters—including Democratic activists—in two state Senate recall districts with instructions to return the material after the date of the election.… In recent days, the state chapter of AFP mailed out fliers telling voters to return the absentee ballot applications to their city clerk before Aug. 11, even though the election date for the two districts receiving the mailers is Aug. 9.”

The AFP team peddled the line that they had somehow forgotten to check the details of a key mailing for election on which they are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars from their out-of-state funders—including David Koch and his billionaire brother Charles.

That’s hard to believe, especially when other groups aligned with AFP have sent out absentee ballots with the same inaccurate date. It is a lot easier to believe We Are Wisconsin’s Kelly Steele, who says, “This is voter suppression in its purest, most vile form.”

But one thing is certain: the hope that Governor Walker expressed in February for an intervention by the Koch brothers and Americans for Prosperity on behalf of his legislative allies is being realized. And that intervention has maintained the ethical standard set by a governor who—in the same conversation with the Koch caller—-discussed sending agent provocateurs into the streets around the state Capitol with the purpose of provoking violent confrontations. The crowds of Wisconsin teachers, parents, students and public- and private-sector workers that had gathered outside the Capitol to challenge Walker’s agenda were peaceful and packed with children. Yet, when asked about sending in troublemakers, the governor said, “We thought about that.” More and a rehash of the fake phone call at http://www.thenation.com/blog/162540/koch-brothers-group-games-wiscons
in-recalls

So they certainly "thought about" using troublemakers, that much is certain. Given the stakes, I think it's quite possible that he "thought about" it again and was less reticent to do it now.

Funny how you keep NOT ignoring me. Now, if you could pay attention to the facts, and stop LYING about what I say... that'd be shiny.

I said nothing about out of state money.

He did, in his very first post.



I didn't say 1 damn thing about out of state money. That's from the ARTICLE I posted. Follow the link. Those are NOT my words.

It's not a lie, you're just door knob stupid.

And credit the Koch brothers. Someone needed to counter the out-of-state union and george soros funding. As well as the fleecing of the Wisconsin tax payers, who end up funding much of the state Democratic party, via unions and forced political dues, which end up in the greedy hands of the most hard core far Left wing political groups and candidates.

So now that THAT'S settled, we can get back to dealing w/ the real world and stop all this childish spin and lying , coming from the Left.

You are stupid. Want to prove me wrong, post where Kerry said he want to limit what we get to say. That is very different then stating that the media should not give time to some.

I'm not stupid, you are. Worse, you're a useful idiot.

I think that's the difference between thinking conservatives, and mindless, mouth breathing Liberals. When Kerry says he doesn't want the media to give equal time to those who HE doesn't think are credible, it's understood by anyone w/ a brain that he's talking regulation. State controlled, Fairness Doctrine mandated monitoring of what gets said, by whom, and how much.

Liberals believe in AGW. Some have even suggested that those who deny the lie that they're on par w/ holocaust deniers. And some should even be charged and tried !

The holocaust happened. AGW ? Not so much. Big difference.

Ahem...

Wisconsin’s public sector unions are ramping up hysteria in anticipation of the recall elections on Tuesday. A reported $15 million, most of it from out of state, has been spent on behalf of the left-wing candidates in the recall races.

Yesterday, Scott Walker opened the Wisconsin State Fair, as is traditionally done by the governor. But the unions couldn’t let their hyperpartisanship rest even for fifteen minutes, and they put on a disgraceful display:

Which seems to be par for the course, with these worthless pieces of shit, dirt bag thug union types.

This is YOUR post, exactly as YOU posted it.

You don't give attribution to your first paragraph, you don't put it in as a quote, you don't put it in quotation marks, and you don't say that it's excerpted from the linked article.

That's all on you. YOU posted it to look like these were your own thoughts on the linked articles.

If you made a mistake, simply apologize and move on.

Otherwise, quit claiming "I never said it!"

Quite clearly, you did. Or you at least tried to make people THINK you did, until I blew it up in your face by calling you on it when you tried to weasel out of what you yourself posted. YOU posted it. Not me. Not Niki. They're YOUR words, Rappy. Quit lying already.

And there you have it. Rappy, who often claims to be the only "adult" on the board, resorts to his oft-used "I know you are, but what am I?!" defense.

What's next, Rap? "I'm rubber; you're glue"?

I never said it. I posted from the articles, and followed those posts with links, and added nothing of my own to either. Thus, quite literally, and accurately, All I 'said' was -

( Which seems to be par for the course, with these worthless pieces of shit, dirt bag thug union types.)

... which was followed with the underlined / bold headline of the next article.

Misunderstanding on how it was presented ? Fine. But one should ask for clarification before accusing anyone of 'lying'.

I didn't, nor did I 'try' to make anyone think I did. They're not my words, as I plainly indicated w/ the links. This is nothing but phony indignation on y'alls part w/ the intent of distracting from the main issue and trying to vilify me.

Standard op for the Left. Attack, attack, attack and distract. And then continue to attack.

It's funny to see some here got so anal, when it suits them, over what's posted on a message board. This isn't a blog, isn't a syndicated column or any sort of publication, intent for journalistic review.

It's a message board. If the best you have is to try to trip up others in mindless minutia, rather than dealing w/ the issues, then this is a bigger waste of time than I imagined. And y'all are smaller than I realized.

It is pure conjecture that Kerry is talking about regulations. Climate Change is scientific fact. The Fairness Doctrine only mandated that time be given to controversial topics and both side be presented.

What a piece of tripe! I don't read his posts, but when I come across quotes of them, like this, I'm reminded of what I'm missing...pure, unadulterated I'm still waiting to hear what ANYONE on the right has to say about the very-obvious fraud going on in Wisconsin right now, which is a very real, proven fraud. Kock & Bro. have gotten away with so much, now they figure they can get away with ANYTHING, however blatant it might be!

--don't pay them any attention, either!

Just noticed I got two "notifications" in e-mail that you responded to my posts, Raptor. I'll be ignoring such things henceforth, so by all means, keep it up. It's not getting through. If you don't get a response, just remember,
