How The Unions and Democrats Practice Civility
This cartoon shows how Unions and Democrats seem to be practicing the art of civil discourse nowadays.
In a new book coming out, Obama says that one of the Tea Party’s Key Components of their rise is race. Of course, then you have Michael “The Biggest Loser” Moore (have you seen a picture of him lately) talking about the money that you make, if you are successful, is really not yours, but the country’s as a national resource. In case you haven’t already done a double take, here is the exact quote:
“They’re sitting on the money, they’re using it for their own — they’re putting it someplace else with no interest in helping you with your life, with that money. We’ve allowed them to take that. That’s not theirs, that’s a national resource, that’s ours. We all have this — we all benefit from this or we all suffer as a result of not having it,” Michael Moore told Laura Flanders of GRITtv.
“I think we need to go back to taxing these people at the proper rates. They need to — we need to see these jobs as something we some, that we collectively own as Americans and you can’t just steal our jobs and take them someplace else,” Moore concluded.
This same old, same old diatribe is permeating the entire left, especially by the hard core Unions and Democrats.
Whatever is yours is not really yours anymore, even though public system employees can complain relentlessly when someone has to let them know that a budget should occasionally be budgeted and they might have to tighten their belts a little bit.
With all the sanity and civility of a Charlie Sheen Tweet, the Unions and Democrats are relentless in their supposed anger and rage. The temper tantrums are, frankly, ridiculous. The fact that the Wisconsin Senate has passed a bill fining the missing Democrats $100/day for pouting for not getting their way (i.e. doing their job) speaks volumes about the lack of civility and class. The interesting part is that the press seems to only report about the protest and skips over the crassness and mean spiritedness of their personal attacks. If Republican or business owners were to say some of the things that the Unions and Democrats have, you would have had the press attack them mercilessly. Instead, we just get to see the protests and have the facts and ugliness of this situation ignored.
Hopefully, the Unions and Democrats will carry themselves with a bit more class going forward. Doing their jobs consistently (teachers and State Representatives) and trying to work towards a resolution would be a way to start. Also, it’s a wayfor the Unions and Democrats to avoid ending up in a cartoon!
