Protesting is Good, Now

by lewwaters

Funny thing about the words spoken in the video, and if you note the exclusion of a major group of protesters in it, the stated attitude did not seem to apply when a mixed group of Conservatives, Liberals and Independents joined together nationwide in 2009 to protest Obamacare.

That’s right, the group known as the TEA Party (Taxed Enough Already) was ridiculed, lambasted, labeled racist (as nearly any disagreement with Obama was for 8 years) and marginalized often by the media, including our own Lazy C.

Updated: What Was All of That Fuss Back in the 1960’s?

by lewwaters

Civil Rights 2I was born and raised a Southerner, coming of age during the Civil Rights era of the 1960’s when cities were still segregated, Whites on one side of the railroad tracks, and Blacks on the other side in much less maintained neighborhoods.

Much of my formative years was less than three blocks from those tracks with a highly prejudiced Dad frequently ranting about how the Black people needed to “just stay in their place,” while I looked around our own roach-infested shack that was no better than we could see when looking across the tracks.

I can’t say that he hated Black people as did others, he was more stuck in what he was raised believing on somehow, Whites were supposedly better and “it’s just the way things are.”

Couldn’t prove it to me in how he supported us.

Environuts Protest Fossil Fuel Aboard ‘Chartered’ Fossil Fuel Yachts

by lewwaters

From the Saturday July 27 2013 fossil fuel protest in Vancouver, Washington organized by the FART’s* (Floating Affluent Recycling Tyrants).

From the description under the video;

Published on Jul 28, 2013 Dateline Sunday July 28, 2013 – Portland Oregon: “How Much Is Enough!?!?” asks Jill MacIntyre Witt, a former Occupier and Certified Presenter for Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project. This shortly after she is caught on tape accepting deliveries and mowing down copious amounts of food aboard “The Gallant,” a private yacht which was one of at least three that participated in yesterday’s environmental extremist protest in Portland Oregon and Vancouver Washington. One of the yachts can be seen in the video spewing diesel fumes and oil pollution into the water. The copious amounts of food were chauffeured to the event by gasoline powered taxicab, and delivered directly to the anxiously awaiting “limousine liberals,” complete with several bouquets of roses. “Down and out” hipsters who were down for the struggle were apparently on the guest list can be seen arriving for the event. A solid four minutes of “hashtag” hypocrisy of the Left. The event was put on by the environmental extremist group “Rising Tide,” and titled “Pacific Northwest Says NO to fossil fuel exports!” Enjoy.

Trayvoning of America

by lewwaters

Trayvon SkittlesOne thing we know the left is masters at is creating new words that make the rights effort out to be overbearing, dumb, ridiculous and to demean our traditional values at any cost.

For example, when we stood up as a ‘Tea Party’ movement, they swiftly labeled us as “Teabaggers,” knowing the word was a code word for a homosexual practice that most of us had never heard of. The steady use of it ended up demeaning our efforts and the willing lamestream media readily joined in.

The Tea Party movement today is a mere shadow of what we started out to be.

We now see the left spreading hysteria across the country over the acquittal of neighborhood watch captain, George Zimmerman for the self defense shooting death of 17-year old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida as protests broke out almost immediately and invoking the name of the youth, even though not one of those out in the streets crying and whining over have a clue who or what he was or may have been.

Washington State Democrat Party Chair, Dwight Pelz Shows A Disconnect

by lewwaters

If there was ever any doubt just how disconnected Democrats really are from the struggling middle class, Dwight Pelz, in his latest effort to instill fear and mislead the public in the run-up to the 2012 election shows it.

Reality Bites For Protesters Too

by lewwaters

For days now I have been watching and speaking of how the Occupy anything but a bar of soap movement is doomed to fall apart, just as we saw back in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Pie in the sky dreams of a socialist utopia come crashing down on the bleeding heart feel gooders when they are smacked right between the eyes with the reality of the world and those in it who think they shouldn’t have to work or carry their portion of the load.

We are beginning to see it in Occupy Portland as reports of discontent and unsanitary conditions are literally leaking out and running down the street.

People in California and other states are getting fed up with cries of protesters having constitutional rights while infringing on the constitutional rights of others to live in a peaceful community and freely use the public lands protesters have decided are theirs to hold instead. In Oakland, some found out the hard way that confronting the Police who are charged with restoring law & order is not conducive to freedom, much less their health.

In Portland, who decided in “incorporate” their movement is raising eyebrows as some $10,000 in donations seems to be missing now.

Part-Time Occupiers to Descend on Vancouver, Washington

by lewwaters

I guess better late than never, an “Occupy Vancouver” event is planned to be held in Esther Short Park this Saturday, October 15, 2011. Unlike other “Occupations” around the country, supposedly showing their disdain for something, passing out free condoms, not bathing and being a general nuisance, “Occupy Vancouver” is slated to be held from noon to 3PM.

The facebook page for this part-time protest states,

“Join together with your fellow citizens to show this nation that we are aware of the injustices, and that we will peacefully assemble in solidarity with the International Day of Occupation on October 15th.”

“This is NOT a movement against authority, this is NOT a movement against police, this IS a peaceful movement of awareness!”

“Thanks for your support! Come voice your ideas, we have three proposed general assembly meetings over the coming days to talk about the event next weekend, and to listen to the public before the event. Saturday the 8th and Sunday the 9th, both at 2pm at Esther Short Park near the center band-shell. And also, Wednesday the 12th at 6pm, same location.”

Apparently they already started their occupation and since we all missed it, they plan to do it again.

Occupy Wall Street: What We Don’t See in the American Media

by lewwaters

As the malcontents of Occupy Wall Street spread their jealous rage across the country, it’s a downright shame that in order to see what is really happening we must turn to the foreign press. The image below was published in the UK Daily Mail, October 8, 2011 along with a host of other images showing the filth and garbage piling up.

Where have we seen this sort of disgusting act before? Oh yes, Portland, Oregon March 2007

No, this isn’t indicative of all of those participating in this misguided protest, but I don’t hear protest organizers complaining about it or telling followers not to engage in such disgust.

And these people complain about the Tea Party?

Fine Tuning Ignorance

by lewwaters

Poet and Philosopher George Santayana is credited with the quotation, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” early in the 20th century. In various forms, it has been repeated since in an effort to warn people to educate themselves in historical matters, one most notably being “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to relive it” in an epigraph by William L. Shirer in his epic book, “Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.”

Many of us, during our years in school, found history to be a boring subject. It brought little interest and we couldn’t wait to get through the lesson for recess, lunch or something more interesting to us. I know my own interest in the subject didn’t pique until the 10th grade when I had the good fortune of being taught World History by Mrs. Pauline Watkins in her final year of teaching before retirement from South Broward High School in Hollywood, Florida.

Tragically, it was in her class that we saw a sad day in our own history unfold as President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas.

Perhaps that is why seeing the ignorance, the lack of education and paying attention to World History irritates me as it does as once again, we see masses of people taking to the streets and “occupying” parks, centers and even Wall Street with their unrealistic demands, some not even knowing why they are protesting, just going along with the flow.

Death of bin Laden Shines a Spotlight on Leftist Hypocrisy

by lewwaters

If nothing else has ever shown the glaring hypocrisy of many leftists in America, the killing of Al Qaeda mastermind Osama bin Laden on May 1, 2011 shines that light on them. From the moment the Astroturf revelers began assembling outside the White House during Barack Obama’s delayed announcement to suddenly embrace all that they protested and condemned during the Bush administration, many on the left have shown themselves once again as hypocrites.

From the time the world witnessed the horrific attacks of September 11, 2001, factions of the anti-war left have protested every step taken to counter terror, including outright denial that terror groups like Al Qaeda even exist, much less took part in the attacks. To them and their very vocal supporters, it was an “inside job” designed only to allow America to go to war.

President Bush was labeled a “murderer,” “warmonger,” and calls for his impeachment rang loud. Even after leaving office, that call changed to one of “indictment” for his “war crimes” that continue to this day. We see letters to the editor such as the one National abusers go unpunished that asks, “Osama bin Laden is dead and, as President Obama says, ‘Justice has been done.’ Will we now turn our attention to these offenders: George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, and Donald Rumsfeld?”

Union Goons Invade State Capitol, 17 Arrested. Wisconsin Fleebagger Due In

by lewwaters

As I predicted here, inspired by the disruptive display of union supporters and thugs in Wisconsin and ignoring that Washington State remains a Democratic Party majority government, union goons invaded the state capitol in Olympia where seventeen union goons and supporters were arrested for trying to storm Democrat Governor Gregoire’s office, according to the Olympian.

The union goons, upset over being expected to “pay their fair share” in the current budget crisis.

The protest, led by the greedy SEIU is said to have brought about 500 people to oppose budget reductions called for across the board to offset the current $5 Billion budget gap.

Washington State Patrol officers did not arrest those who refused to leave the capitol last night after being told to, but arrested the 17 today when they tried to force their way past the officers into Governor Gregoire’s office, shouting “let us in” and “we want the governor.”

One of the union goons, Sharon Kitchel-Perdue who was arrested said, “They need to listen to us,” referring to the Democrat led legislature.

Republican Governor Saves 1,500 Union Jobs: Democrats Cry Foul!

by lewwaters

After Wisconsin’s legislature succeeded in passing their ‘budget repair bill,’ Governor, Scott Walker has rescinded some 1,500 lay-off notices that had been sent out to state union workers in the state. Rescinding the notices, Governor Walker issued a notice saying,

“The Legislature helped us save 1,500 middle-class jobs by moving forward this week with the budget repair. The state will now be able to realize $30 million in savings to balance the budget and allow 1,500 state employees to keep their jobs. The reforms contained in this legislation, which require modest health care and pension contributions from all public employees, will help put Wisconsin on a path to fiscal sustainability.” 

“While tough budget choices certainly still lie ahead, both state and local units of government will not have to do any mass layoffs or direct service reductions because of the reforms contained in the budget repair bill. Moving forward the hardworking, professional public sector employees who show up to work every day and do an excellent job will help ensure Wisconsin has a business climate that allows the private sector to create 250,000 new jobs.”

For weeks now we have heard how “anti-union,” “mean-spirited,” “cold hearted” Governor Walker is, adding rhetoric to rhetoric against the Governor and the newly elected Republican legislature majority.

Speakerette Pelosi Reacts To the TEA Parties

by lewwaters

Depending on tired campaign slogans, Pelosi spreads disinformation in hopes of countering the growing anti-tax movement.

Her cry of “failed Bush policies” are laughable. Our economy was moving along steadily, inspite of war on two fronts and growing. The Stock Market was at all times highs and unemplyment at record lows when she and her cabal of socialist Democrats seized congressional power in January 2007.

As they began dismanting our liberties and pushing their sodcialist agenda, our economy began faltering.

Don’t forget that our current situation was brought on by the failure of two Democrat based mortgage giants, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which Democrats denied were in trouble back in 2003 when Bush tried to regulate them and again in 2005 when McCain tried.

While some in the RNC may support the TEA Parties, they are not sponsoring us. We are grassroots, much more than the ACORN and Moveon.org instilled rallies that often use paid professional protesters to appear outraged.

The left’s backlash to our backlash is predictable and manufactured to keep American citizens deluded to the truth of what Democrats stand for today, dismantling a strong America and rebuilding a copy of the failed Soviet Union.

Pelosi isn’t deluded at all. As usual, she and the left must spread lies and deceit to counter us. We threaten their socialist takeover and to fight us, they resort to their normal disinformation.

Ignore them and continue fighting for our liberties.
