One Nation Made a Mess Of the National Mall.Unlike The Conservatives

Why didn't you liberals pick up your own crape? It seems to be what you people are all about. Make a mess and let someone else clean it up. If this is the group that wants to take our government over then watch out. Just by looking at the lack of respect of our nations capitol speaks volumes. The speakers all blamed someone else for their short comings and they all wanted something without paying for it. And they think they can run a country???? Give me a break. I wouldn't let animals like that run a shit farm let alone my country. I hear there were numerous arrests made by the police. I remind you that the Restoring Honor and all the Tea Party rallies have had not one arrest at them,other then from opposition. When they clean up after themselves first then maybe we will let them move up. But not until they learn to respect like the Tea Party conservatives will I respect them.


  1. Enthusiasm gap, schmenthusiasm gap. Without the benefit of months and months of advertising and promotion on Fox News Channel (in fact, I'm only aware of Ed Schultz on MSNBC doing any kind of TV promotion), the One Nation Working Together rally in Washington DC has gathered more supporters than Glenn Beck's much ballyhooed rally, which I will lovingly refer to as "Whitestock".

    Preliminary satellite estimates put the crowd size at 350,000 to 650,000 at about noon EST. By the calculations of Bachman/Beck, et al., that would mean at least 1,000,000, non?

    The question is whether the corporate media will keep pimping the "importance" and influence of the tea baggers and ignore the bigger numbers on the Democratic side of the aisle. Of the cable outlets, only C-Span is airing the event, so clearly this doesn't fit the narrative that MSNBC/CNN/Fox want to push.

    Also amazing: The kind of camera work I saw from C-SPAN. It looked to me as if they were deliberately shooting the few empty seats that were close to the podium. These empty spaces were largely the result of the way the crowd was fenced at the Mall. But as you can see, it was a massive event.

    And yes, I was reminded once again that, for whatever disappointment we may feel with the way the progressive agenda has been stymied and diluted the past couple of years, every progressive voter needs to ask him/herself: Do I want to spend the next two years playing offense or defense?

    Then get out in November and do the right thing.

    There must have been over 2,000,000 people in DC that day. We will destroy the enemy that is the teabaggers.

  2. On The Mall of Washington DC, the George Soros funded Tides Foundation held it’s One Nation Working Together Rally today at the base of the Lincoln Memorial. Also referred to as ‘10-2-10′, mimicking the highly successful 8/28 Rally held by Glenn Beck, the One Nation Rally was sponsored by some 400 groups. Those attending were from major labor unions, such as SEIU, the AFL-CIO and the American Teachers Federation, along with hundreds of other organizations ranging from the Center for American Progress and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People to the Communist Party USA. Unlike Glenn Beck’s rally where over 500,000 people gathered to hear from speakers like Sarah Palin, about 150,000 appear to have assembled to bash Capitalism and advocate more gun control.

    The One Nation Rally featured speakers from unions, as well as groups like La Raza, the Sierra Club and the PFFLG – Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays. The theme of the event is dissatisfaction. Progressives are dissatisfied the state of the nation. They desire America to be reconstructed.

    But while these Liberals bandy about their tired, worn out slogans of “jobs, justice and education”, they offer no solutions to paying the piper. That fat union pension plans, health care for all and endless social safety nets have a price which keeps getting larger and larger. The U.S. Federal government already has an ‘on budget’ debt load approaching $14 Trillion dollars. Add to that the shortfalls in state and municipal governments, plus deficits in public employee pension plans, takes us to nearly $20 Trillion dollars.

    Then comes that foggy-gray netherworld of unfunded mandates, commitments and contingencies. That is estimated somewhere between an additional $70 Trillion to as much as $120 Trillion dollars. All of which is a burden to future generations.

    Economist Peter Morici of the University of Maryland recently wrote “The Decadence of Election 2010” for his blog (see below), where he paints a grim future for the prospects of America. He does not believe that the GOP, nor the Tea Party, can reverse the decline of the country. Morici blames both the Democrats and Republicans for our current ills. His objective view slams presidents from Clinton through Obama for the mess that we face.

    Morici narrows the problem down to four key elements. Our health care costs too much, 50% more than the socialized medicine of Europe. Wall Street and the banking industry are too greedy. China has been given too much of a free hand to dominate our economy. And that we are nowhere near a solution to moving away from oil and fossil fuels.

    At the heart of each is the corrupt alliance between corporations and our Federal government. Greed and power have run amok. This now filters down through lower levels of the food chain, such as government employee unions. The average government worker earns double a private sector counter-part. A smaller percentage of private sector workers have lavish pensions or even the job security enjoyed by government workers.
    We are watching now in Europe the result of such economic displacements. Much of this week saw violence and angry protests from government employees now facing reductions in pay and benefits in many European countries. An attempted coup in Ecuador this week was launched by angry police and soldiers, upset over reductions in salary and benefits they are subject to.

  3. Some say that the Capitalist system has failed. That this economic unwinding is a direct result of deregulation and greed. But even Morici acknowledges the roots of our despair lie political policies, such as giving Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac a free hand to over-value the housing market. Allowing China and oil sheiks to fuel the mortgage bubble further purchasing excessive bonds and derivatives.

    The mood in America, let alone much of the rest of the world, is getting uglier. How long will it be before we see the sort of demonstrations and violence that happened in Europe this week? Who will step forward with solutions to resolve our massive debts and institute a gradual easing of social programs and obligations?

    Don’t bother looking at the groups attending the One Nation Working Together rally today. Groups like the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People are calling for more spending, more stimulus, more government and more gun control. The One Nation Rally may not have the numbers as Glenn Beck’s 8/28 did. But then they do not have Sarah Palin as a speaker, nor Glenn Beck as the host. The best they could do at the Lincoln Memorial is to round up thugs from the AFL-CIO and the lamest TV-radio host on the airwaves, Ed Schultz. Lacking the grass roots of the Tea Party, the One Nation Rally relies instead on the sinister octopus of the groups funded by George Soros.

    Stop by my blog Chris.

  4. Trashy People, both politically and 'liter'ally

  5. There were so many special interest groups at the One Nation Rally it was funny. Of course, me, not being a member of a union, didn't get my bus paid for and all my food for the day free,so I didn't go check it out.
    It's every persons right to gather and have free speech, so let them enjoy their time in the sun (mimicing therally of a person they hate). Too bad they were so trashy!

  6. And they want to run our country? Clean up your mess.

  7. Where Ever Progressive Go They Leave A Mess. Well November The Brooms Come Out. Aint Fall Great.


Please keep it clean and nice. Thank you for taking the time to post you thought. It means a lot to me that you do this.
