What if government policies didn’t change when government leaders did?

The video above is of Judge Napolitano.  I used to see him sometimes on Fox News, but I think he was mostly on Fox Business, which I don’t get.  However, he disappeared.  Supporting youtubes to the one above claim that he was fired shortly after this episode of his show because he was promoting Ron Paul.  I have no inside information, but he only mentions Ron Paul a couple of times at the end of the video.  Plus – how can Ron Paul be a threat – he keeps running, but he never comes anywhere close to winning.  If Judge Napolitano did indeed get fired because of this video, I would guess it was because of the substance of what he was saying.  Other than the Ron Paul references, he sounds an awful lot like a war-weary, but much wiser PUMA.  I’ve transcribed his words below:

…participation in a process that validates an establishment that never meaningfully changes?

What if that establishment doesn’t want and doesn’t have the consent of the governed?

What if the two party system was actually a mechanism used to limit so-called public opinion?

What if there were more than two sides to every issue, but the two parties wanted to box you into a corner, one of THEIR corners?

What if there is no such thing as public opinion, because every thinking person has opinions that are uniquely his (sic) own?

What if what we call public opinion was just a manufactured narrative that makes it easier to convince people that if their views are different, then there’s something wrong with THAT, or there’s something wrong with THEM?

What if the whole purpose of the democratic and republican parties was not to expand voters’ choices, but to limit them?

What if the widely perceived differences between the two parties was just an illusion?

What if the heart of the government policy remains the same no matter WHO is in the White House?

What if the heart of government policy remains the same no matter what the people WANT?

What if those vaunted differences between democrat and republican were actually just minor disagreements?

What if both parties just want power and are willing to have young people fight meaningless wars in order to enhance that power?

What if both parties continue to fight the war on drugs just to give bureaucrats and cops bigger budgets and more jobs?

What if government policies didn’t change when government leaders did?

What if no matter who won an election, government stayed the same?

What if government was really a revolving door for political hacks, bent on exploiting the people once they’re in charge?

What if both parties supported welfare, war, death, bailouts, and big government?

What if the rhetoric that candidates displayed on the campaign trail was dumped after electoral victory?

What if Barack Obama campaigned as an anti-war, pro-civil liberties candidate, and then waged senseless wars while assaulting your rights that the constitution is supposed to protect?

What if George W. Bush campaigned on a platform of non-intervention and small government, and then waged a foreign policy of muscular military intervention and a domestic policy of vast government borrowing and growth?

What if Bill Clinton declared that the “era of big government was over”, but actually just convinced republicans like Newt Gingrich that they can get what THEY want out of big government, too

What if the republicans went along with it?

What if Ronald Reagan spent six years running for president promising to shrink the government, but then the government GREW while he was in the White House?

What if, not withstanding Reagan’s  ideas and cheerfulness and libertarian rhetoric, there really was no Reagan Revolution at all?

What if all this is happening again?

What if Rick Santorum is being embraced by voters who want small government, even though Senator Santorum voted for the Patriot Act, for an expansion of Medicare, and for raising the debt ceiling by trillions of dollars?

What if Mitt Romney is being embraced by voters who want anyone but Barack Obama, but they don’t realize that Mitt Romney might as well BE Barack Obama on everything from warfare to welfare?

What if Ron Paul is being ignored by the media, not because as they claim he’s unappealing or unelectable, but because he doesn’t fit into the pre-manufactured public opinion mold used by the establishment to pigeonhole the electorate to create the so-called narrative that drives media coverage of elections?

What if the biggest difference between most candidates was not substance but style?

What if those stylistic differences were packaged as substantive ones to reinforce the illusion of a difference between democrats and republicans?

What if Mitt Romney wins and ends up continuing most of the same policies that Barack Obama promoted?

What if Barack Obama’s policies too, are merely extensions of those of George W. Bush?

What if a government that manipulated us could be FIRED?

What if a government that lacked the true and knowing consent of the governed could be dismissed?

What if it were possible to have a real game changer?

What if we need a Ron Paul to preserve and protect our freedoms from the government?

What if we can make elections matter again?

What if we could do something about this?

Granted, there are SOME specific differences between the parties – one of them is playing out right now, diverting the public’s attention from the economy.  Certainly there are right wingers in the population who want “none of the above” and left wingers who want any abortions, even if it’s close to delivery time.  But abortion and contraception are well-used wedge issues.  Most people have a more nuanced, graduated opinion of abortion, not so different from each other, even across the aisle.  The danger is to what extent the wingers and media will whip them up in a frenzy with a siren call back to the base, using lots of misconceptions and misleading arguments to turn the moderate temporarily wingish.

So, basically I’m getting more convinced that there isn’t much difference between the parties – not on the big things.  They pull out these little (but not insignificant) wedge issues at election time, but I don’t think they are truly illustrative of a big chasm between the parties’ individual power structures.  They’re not so much differences as they are useful tools.  They sometimes even draw up new legislation, but most never see the light of day once the election has passed.  It’s all a big game.

But if all these “what ifs” listed above are true – it’s more proof of why they had to cheat against Hillary in the caucuses and then steal her delegates on May 31, 2008 so that she could not have her win.  I still can’t believe that the person who won the most primary votes in ANY primary of ANY party in the history of record keeping just could not be allowed to win.  But a true public servant like Hillary would be working, as she has her whole life, based on her principles (look it up in the dictionary, Obama).  She would be working for the PEOPLE, not playing the game.  They could harass her, and rain on her all they could – but she wouldn’t run, she would stand , soaking wet, and keep fighting for what was right.  And that couldn’t be allowed.

By EITHER party.

  1. We don’t need a third party, we need a second party.

  2. Brillliant, myiq!

  3. Think about this:

    The past few weeks have been dominated by a big ole gnarly fight over contraception. This fight has sucked up most of the oxygen in politics. But when the smoke clears, what will be different?

    Best case scenario:

    Women with medical insurance won’t have to pay extra for contraception and a couple of rich misogynists will be temporarily unemployed.

    Worst case scenario:

    Women with medical insurance will have to pay extra for contraception and a couple of rich misogynists will still be employed.

  4. When I worked in family law I witnessed couples who were so caught up in fighting with each other over every little issue they were literally paying money to attorneys to fight over dishes, pots & pans and even house plants.

    Politics is like that sometimes. One side is “pro” so the other side has to be “anti.” But the parties are like lawyers that don’t want their clients to ever resolve certain issues. If we ever settled abortion and gay marriage, what would we fight over?

  5. I don’t see women’s issues as wedge issues any longer. I see them as my only issues. Personally, I am sick and tired of tabling these issues because “something else is more important”. THere is nothing more important that human rights and from now on, I am a single issue voter.

    Unfortunately BOTH parties fail the smell test. Republicans are moving just short of tying bricks on women’s feet, throwing them into the river and seeing who floats before burning them on a pyre. Democrats have used women for decades, pretending to care and promising to “dole out” their rights to them and woe are you if you don’t vote for a Democrat. The Democrats had two full years of control of both houses and the white house and all we got from them was……Nothing. Women had best stop Asking for their rights. They are going to have to take them. I’m not playing any longer. My issue is Women. These candidates are not my candidates. Prove me wrong. Not with words, but with a record.

  6. The now infamous “Give It To Your Woman. It’s Her Job” clothing-care label posted on twitter by Emma Barnett.

    photo/1

    One woman creates a world of hurt for a British Mfg company.

    http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2012/03/08/u-k-pants-label-give-laundry-to-your-woman/

  7. Here’s the ironic part:

    It’s not every day that clothing care instructions spark controversy. But that’s what happened after British journalist Emma Barnett picked up her boyfriend’s pants over the weekend while tidying the house.

    Why was SHE picking up HIS pants?

    You could write the secrets of the universe inside a pair of women’s pants and no guy would ever find them.

  8. Why was SHE picking up HIS pants?

    The slob left them on the floor?

  9. Axelrod has backed off going on Maher’s show. Hmmm. Also, Politico reports, ” Alabama Democratic Party had scrubbed its website of an announcement for its upcoming fundraiser headlined by Maher.” Hmmm. But alas, Rush laughs and says that the Democratics thought he was finished over the Fluke incident. Hmmm.

    Lorac, this is a great post!

    My, “Why was SHE picking up HIS pants?” Yes, the elephant in the room. Ha, Ha, Ha!!

  10. Napolitano, Bolling, and some other guy’s shows were cancelled on FBN supposedly due to ratings. My theory is that Napolitano & Bolling are both populist and Tea Party friendly, and FBN is sort of a premium channel so it was a bad fit demographically.
    They would probably have better ratings on a network, if that makes sense.

  11. The comments on the cnn article about the pants label are full of dudebros loving the label. *barf*

  12. Good mroning (((UPPITY’S))))

    Lorac: a beautiful narrative—–BRAVO !!

  13. votermom, Dude Nation isn’t going to give up a good deal unless it’s taken from them.

  14. Third party ? Yes the party of women. Women taking back what was theirs by birth and stripped from them by men, religion and the evil bastard two parties. I would join a third party in a NY second if it was a party of women taking back what was always theirs.

  15. I second that, Utah. Twice. I can cheat like that. I’m a Democrat.

  16. ROFLMAO !!! Spit my coffee all over. Nose shot !

  17. I belong to neither party honestly. I will never belong to either party again. I am an independent. I was a Republican for most my voting years and decided neither party represented me personally so I will not wear their tag either.

  18. Just in case anyone thinks it’s just the right that has crazies that want a theocracy, check this out

    United States of Obama

  19. “No self respecting woman should wish or work for the success of a party that ignores her sex.”

    Explains why I am an independent.

  20. Last thing the Democrats want is a Theocracy. That’s Republican. Democrats want a secular dictatorship.

  21. Picky. picky. It’s a cult of the living gOd.

  22. great post Lorac. :)

  23. votermom, Hurlburt is just like the woman who chairs my county commettee: an Obama worshipper incapable of conversation. How does anybody not see the idolatry of flying a flag with that mug displacing the symbols for the 50 sovereign States united under one God and Flag?

  24. We might as well replace the constitution with “Dreams of My Father”.

    Wait, I bet Obama’s dad did dream of the power to legally assassinate any pesky American that got on his nerves.

    I guess we already have.

  25. Myiq – you are right about the labels in women’s clothes (and men’s clothes), my husband assumes ALL labels say the same thing:

    gather clothes of roughly the same color
    pour a cap of stuff on top (hope it is soap and not softener)
    push the top button on the washer
    walk away

    He does sort laundry because… red socks.

  26. About the first comment: I’ve noticed Teh Klown still makes quite a bit of sense when he can restrain his conditioned reflex to bash hippies.

  27. Spit my coffee all over. Nose shot !

    Oh Good! I love confirmation that I retain my Touch.

  28. By the way, it is illegal to deface or otherwise stick your mug on the flag isn’t it?

  29. Whoa, jackyt. Nice find! Give this lurker a penguin!

  30. UW I respectfully disagree, a certain segment of the Democrats would love an “Earth/AGW/Climate Change” worshiping theocracy. Environmentalism IS a religion for some.

    Aside from that a secular dictatorship or giving over sovereignty to the UN would probably suffice.

    Twiddle dee a**holes……and twiddle dee a**hats, the R’s and the D’s.

  31. Indeed, if there is so much so wishful thinking about her return to the domestic political arena, after losing the 2008 Democratic nomination to Mr. Obama, it is because she is considered the one politician who could break the gridlock in Washington.

    As a savvy centrist senator from New York, the former First Lady had a reputation for working both sides of the aisle and had a constructive rapport with her colleagues in both parties. Mr. Obama never mastered that during his short stint in the upper chamber.

    ….But But But………I thought she was ‘devisive’ and ‘polarizing”!!!!

  32. Somebody environmentalism/global whatever they are calling it today is not a religion to them, it’s a substitute for religion. They wouldn’t actually want to worship anything, it’s just that they get a certain perverse pleasure out of torturing people to live a ridiculous life while they don’t bother doing any of it themselves. Al Goricle comes to mind.

  33. You guys crack me up. When is one of you going to say Uppity, you ignorant slut! I disagree!

  34. Remember, tomorrow is the Ides of March.

  35. Today’s moronic spambot who should demand his money back from his English translator

    Thanks for the auspicious writeup. It in fact used to be a leisure account it.
    Glance complicated to more brought agreeable from you! By
    the way, how can we communicate?

  36. She’s only divisive and polarizing when she’s running for office. She’s not running for anything at the moment……..but don’t worry if she does then she’ll be divisive, polarizing, shrill, reminds you of your ex-wife, and a long list of other things.

    Silly UW, you know it works that way. Hey what would be better for the boyz than if one of those wimminz threw their hat in the ring. Well first of course we’d have to discuss the color and style of HER hat, but then we could get on with the name calling……that’s how it works.

  37. “How can we communicate?”……Definitely not with English dude!

  38. “You guys crack me up. When is one of you going to say Uppity, you ignorant slut! I disagree!” —(I don’t know how to do the yellow block)

    UW: your confusing us again, Who are you talking too—

  39. No I wasn’t confusing anybody michelina. I just love how you guys always are so polite when you disagree. Actually it was after Somebody’s post that I wrote that. Just playing.

  40. How can we communicate?”……Definitely not with English dude!

    LOLOL.

  41. She’s only divisive and polarizing when she’s running for office. She’s not running for anything at the moment……..but don’t worry if she does then she’ll be divisive, polarizing, shrill, reminds you of your ex-wife, and a long list of other things.

    Penguin! Penguin!

  42. Uppity you ignorant……….I don’t need no stinking penguin! I already have two dogs, one of them is blind. Can you imagine how a penguin would torture my poor blind dog?

    BTW, I just can’t call you names so I stopped short of quoting that famous SNL line.

  43. UW: SOMEBODY: OH< I got it now,

    I worry about you UW: How is that mouth of yours doing

  44. Tomorrow may be the Ides of March, but for us geeks, today is an important holiday, too. It’s “Pi Day”. What kind of pi are you baking? I’m thinking tart cherry.

  45. No Pi here. I R Square.

  46. Mouth is fine michelina. Have appt tomorrow for that lower bite impression I couldn’t get last week. Then he will redo the caps on the in a week. Looks like I am pretty much out of the woods and just a little sore but no inflamation or signs of infection. I’m fine. That Z Pack stuff works.

  47. Somebody we’ll get the dog a seeing eye pengy.

  48. Same subject, same subject. Jane, you magnificently ignorant slut.

  49. Oil from BP spill got into ocean food chain. Say it isn’t so! I mean if that were true, we would have HEARD about it. Right?

  50. Fantastic post. All those “what ifs” are pretty close to the mark, imo. And the last paragraph sums up what I’ve thought about the primary all along: You can’t control Hill, so no go, as determined by the powers that be.

    Happy pi day! I’ll take 3.14 slices of any pie anyone’s offering!

  51. And re: the article about pining for Hillary: can we just be clear that 0 never mastered anything during his short tenure anywhere, unless you count waiting for things to be handed to you on a silver platter as a type of mastery…..

    I once read that Hill was so good at working across the aisle, and so effective at getting work done, that Rove told his minions to stop working with her as she was becoming too powerful.

    Hahaha, Rove. Lost cause. Hillary was born more powerful than 99% of the doofs who hold office in Congress.

  52. I dunno Twandx, I just think she tries to sell her work. I don’t trust her, but I don’t mind her babbling aobut it. Beats listening to her blow Obama on her keyboard. She’ll turn on a dime if it sells.

  53. Hillary was born more powerful than
    99% of the doofs who hold office in Congress.

    And that is something they simply just can’t stand.

  54. It’s Pi day? I made a pie too!! Lemon meringue, yum!

  55. Did someone mention PIE? :)

  56. I had lemon meringue pie tonight. Yum.

  57. I have Pi left.

  58. What a deal. My friend wasn’t feeling well so I sent a vat of chicken soup over there. So today I get a beautiful lemon meringue pie. Now tell me I didn’t get the better end of that trade.

  59. What a nice friend. A PIE friend is always good to have ;)

  60. Too funny imust!!

    OT, I don’t know if any dog owners out there are aware of it, but there has been a recall on dog treats. Specifically chicken dog treats, under the brands Waggin Tails and Milo’s Kitchen. Chinese stuff again.

    I think this is just the tip of the iceberg though, it started this way last time. Take heed and check labels. Also, double check your pet food. Apparently several companies were scooped up the past couple of years so your trusted brand may not be so trusted anymore.

  61. I’m sorry it’s a WARNING not a recall.

    Seriously check your labels this is looking a repeat of 2007.

  62. That flag with O’s mug on it shows how mental Obamanation has become. Mental’s the only word.

  63. Well, Upps, there are secular ‘gods’ — Marx, Lenin, Mao,…and Obama.

  64. We might as well replace the constitution with “Dreams of My Father”.

    ROFL. Also, chilled. Give this woman a PENGY!!

  65. Uppity, you ignorant slut! I disagree!

  66. UW: How is that mouth of yours doing

    Apparently, it needs to be washed out with soap.

  67. NES… LOL…

  68. Imust.. Love the kitteh pic… Goof does that with my yarn allllll the time. :grin:

  69. testing… testing… I’m lost in the mod cellar.. hep me!

  70. There we go… WP snatched me… I back… still have a couple comments lost in the cellar

  71. Re the Obama-flag vid: What is it with these older white women who can’t stop ___ing O?

  72. I dun fished ya out, goofsgal.

  73. Thank you to who ever rescued them… :grin:

  74. Something weird is happening. Every time I try to post a comment I’m getting this message:

    You must be logged in to comment with that email address.

    I logged into gravatar. I logged into gmail. I don’t get it.

    Anyway, Happy Lorac Wednesday and Pi day. I brought pies in to work today. We ate them at 1:59. That would be 3.14159!

    Lorac, I think the judge is right on.

    I think both parties are trying to distract us from the economy because neither has a clue.

  75. Thanks NES… very cool of you.

  76. I had a Religious-Bullshit Pie — half-Santorum/half-Gingrich, the whole wrapped in malarky, and topped with a baloney garnish.

  77. Eeeeeek, SophieCT, you’ve lost your Hillary-Face. Quick, go put it on. We’ve grown accustomed to your face.

  78. Anytime goofs.
    (MKB is goofing off somewhere, no doubt.)

  79. NES: I can’t until I find out what I’m supposed to log into!

  80. Whoa! Look who’s just started following me on Twitter. I better launch some anti-GW messages to welcome him/her.

    CALL OUT THE MARINES. CALL OUT THE SEALS.

  82. SophieCT, you have to log in to WP to get your gravatar back. That’s what I did. :)

  83. NES, nice but won’t that attract the anti-GW crowd.

  84. Log into WP where and with what credentials? As far as I know, WP has no direct relationship with my SophieCT handle.

  85. NES, becareful what you say about MKB or you’ll end up in WP limbo. He was probably having a nipnap.

  86. NES: try adding this hashtag: #globalwarminghoax

  87. SophieCT, use your email and then put in sophiect on the line underneath your email addy. It will populate the gravatar itself.

  88. opps, forgot WP is the w in a circle to the left of the twitter icon right below the comments box

  89. goofsmom: what credentials do I use to log in to WordPress?

    I’m starting to like this fake gravatar. It looks like an antioxidant.

  90. SophieCT, use your email addy. The one you used when you came to Uppittys

  91. Sophie, LOL… I’m seeing little blue men… kinda like the blue MM

  92. NES, you might want to look for sophie in the cellar. Hope she didn’t get stuck there. :shock:

  93. goofsmom: Here’s the situation…when I leave my normal email address in the first field of the comment form, my correct avatar displays. However, I am unable to post my comment. I get the message: You must be logged in to comment with that email address.

    When I use another email address, I am able to post comments, but I do not get my normal gravatar because the gravatar is associated with my normal email address.

    The problem is that I don’t know what that message thinks I am supposed to be logged in to! I logged into gravatar. I logged into my email. I still isn’t happy.

  94. I had a similar problem Sophie. My pie face disappeared. I tried logging on to everything, including my wordpress account. Nada. Then one day…..it reappeared!

  95. Arrrggh!

  96. Geez, if you make up an email address, it will let you post, but if you use your real email address, all of a sudden it doesn’t know you anymore and won’t let you post!

  97. But my beautiful Hillary gravatar has not disappeared. WP just won’t let me comment using that email address without logging in!

  98. But Happy Pi Day, your Pieness!

  99. Thank you. You look a little like a blueberry. Blueberries make great pies, just sayin.

  100. geez good thing I can get myself out of moderation lol

  101. Now, back to where I was, I was about to yell at NES!

    NES! She will sic needlenose on me!

  102. So, why is there a Pi day? Is it the birthday of whatever mathematician figured it out?

    SophieCT how cool that you knew when Pi was time-wise today lol

  103. LOL A wife swap show is starting, and in the previews it shows that one of the families believes the world is ending in 2012, and she’s going to be sent to another family, they show her making the new incredulous family dressing up in yellow gear, I guess raincoats over 100% of your body save you from the world destruction lol

  104. lorac: You answered your own question!! It is Pi day because it is 3/14.

  105. Yikes! Lorac! What happened to your Hillary gravatar????

  106. Pi = 3.14159…………..

  107. imust, SohpieCT looks like a blueberry who has been eating a lot of your pies. I look like a blueberry decked out for battle!

    Oh, wait…. looks like I’m part dragon and part blueberry….

  108. Maybe you both lost your gravatar while in spam?

  109. oh March 14, lol I didnt even catch that

    Hillary is gone, because wordpress is going nuts. Maybe Pi day is Y2K for wordpress!

  110. Maybe the only gravatars left will be PIES….on Pi Day!

  111. You know, imust, just because they named a movie after me, doesn’t mean you got to have a Pi day today! lol

  112. Pay for Play. Obama fundraisers attend State Dinner. Color me shocked!

    Now GAG me:

    “I’m so thrilled he’s running for re-election,” said Weinstein, who raised more than $500,000 this campaign. “He’s done a fantastic job, and he’s the most underestimated president I’ve seen. He’s too humble, and his accomplishments far outweigh his esteem, but people will learn that in tim

    e.”

  113. That’s right! You have a whole movie!

  114. Uh oh…

    CBS News Poll: 80% of Americans Say They Were Better Off Before Obama Was Elected..

    I didn’t put the link because I think it might be one of the websites we don’t link to (Weaselzip?), but it’s an CBS news poll…

  115. But goofs, I think I fall within that crowd.

  116. Goofs for MKB, life is an interlude between nipnaps.

  117. Thanks SophieCT. Hey, someone’s gotta explain this inserting hashtags into tweets practice. What does it get one? Does it ping a site with that hasttag?

    (Watch, when lorac comes here she’ll say “What’s a hashtag lol. Can vegans eat it lol.”)

  118. No sophie in the cellar.

  119. Eff! lorac lost her Hillary too!! WTF — maybe the Obots have infected WP with an anti-hillary-pictures bug!

  120. NES: a hashtag is like a topic. You can search them. One of my TweetDeck columns is a search of several hashtags–topics I’m interested in. Here’s more:

    http://support.twitter.com/articles/49309-what-are-hashtags-symbols#

  121. You look a little like a blueberry. Blueberries make great pies, just sayin.

    [lorac says: OMG! Did imust just threaten to eat SophieCT lol. Chit, even the straight girls are competing with me now lol.]

  122. Maybe your gravatar was abducted by aliens and now carries a secret chip implant, enabling an alien probe of all Uppityites.

  123. Thx luv (SophieCT). (lorac will be sooo J.)

  124. A Trans-Uppityite Probe. Pass this bill!

  125. NES: I’ll have you know it took every ounce of restraint I had NOT to comment on it.

  126. What did I say? What did I do? Why would lorac want to yell at poor NES?

  127. NES: I’ll have you know it took every ounce of restraint I had NOT to comment on it.

    Yep, me too!!!!!!! Trust lorac to say it!

  128. Alien probe of Uppityites?? I thought the Republicans already voted on that??

  129. I think Upps is cheating on us…with Twitter. Our comments aren’t as attractive as others’ tweets, I suppose. Harrrumph.

  130. Uppity isn’t a tweeter-cheater….or a bitter-twitter.

    Okay, now I’ve become a blog-hog!

    Beware the Ides of March!!!

  131. Funny you should mention aliens… I had run off to netflix and was watching a show on aliens. ;)

  132. Funny you should mention aliens…

    coincidence…..I DON’T think SO!!!

  133. when I came back to comment it said I had to log in again. So I hit the WP icon (blue w in circle)

    It opened up a pop up window. I signed in with my regular email and password.

    Then I noticed at the bottom where it displays my email that my email addy was in all caps and my gravatar was not Goof.

    I clicked on the word change

    It opened up the box at the bottom and I could retype my email addy without it being all caps.

    Then my Goof pic gravatar came up and I could see that I was logged in as me in the top right hand corner.

  138. My icon is BACK!

  139. Found over in the comments at the swampland

    Yet another rape at Occupy. From AOS:

    Woman Raped At Occupy New Haven
    Another rape that, per Keith Olbermann, is understandable. Even necessary, in a way.

    A member of the Occupy New Haven movement was raped in a tent at the Occupy camp late on Monday night or early Tuesday morning, police said.

    Police responded to the camp at 3:25 p.m. The victim was brought to Yale-New Haven Hospital and police charged England Gamble, 53, of New Haven, with first-degree sexual assault and first-degree unlawful restraint.

    Members of the Occupy movement said neither Gamble nor the victim are members of the movement. They said both are homeless and set up a tent nearby.

    Note that there’s some clown-nose on, clown-nose off going on here. When it’s useful, the 99% claims everyone in the 99%.

    But when someone gets raped, Occupy starts getting very exclusive about who is part of the “movement.”

  140. I just saw a Dulcolax commercial where this woman takes it and then goes floating around in a swimming pool with a big smile on her face.

    If you have been taking laxatives, stay the hell out of my pool!

  141. I should change my alias to “Threadkiller”

  142. Wow, when I kill a thread, I do it right.

    This thread is deader than Anna Nicole Smith.

  143. Now here this. All OWS rapists and victims are not part of the OWS movement the moment the rape occurs.

    I wasn’t even aware OWS existed any longer. They sure are making a splash. If it weren’t for the rape,, they’d have no press at all. They are ineffective and the product of a life of getting a trophy for just showing up. I guess they figured out this doesn’t happen in the real world.

  144. Alien probe of Uppityites

    It won’t happen. Everybody knows aliens only probe pig farmers in Kansas.

  145. I wasn’t even aware OWS existed any longer.

    They retreated to their parent’s basements to wait for warmer weather and to plot their Spring Offensive. So far this is what they’ve got:

    1. Reoccupy city parks

    2. ?

    3. VICTORY!

  146. myiq, number 2 is the gourmet meals served up to them by the wimminz who haven’t been raped yet.

  147. myiq, can you give me a link to keith saying these rapes are “understanable. Even necessary”? I am looking for a confirmed link not from a freeper site. I can’t find this quote anywhere else but freeper spots. I just want to confirm before I blast his ass on it.

  148. Highlights of NY’s pension reform.

    Employee contributions to pension increases by % for higher paid employees
    Retirement age increased.
    Limits to pension amounts for higher paid employees.
    Pension “sweeteners’ must be prefunded and not passed onto local governments.
    Projected to save $80 billion over 30 years.

  149. I got nothing prior to the Ace of Spades link.

  150. ok I’ll keep looking.
