No, I'm sure the AFL-CIO and SEIU have all the bases covered and don't need me!

You donít support American citizens protesting against the dipsticks in the financial sector that caused the economic crash?

I thought that would be right up your street.  Iíve been reading some of the changes that the protesters are proposing Ė including a structured way to grab back all the bailout money and tighter controls on derivative trading including caps on leverage, not to mention tighter restrictions on bonuses.

You donít support any of that?

Nope. Whenever unions and community organizers demand things, it usually means more government involvement in the private sector. We've hade way too much of that lately.

So you support the financial institutions and fiscally inept CEOís at the very centre of the economic collapse, the same financial wizards who managed to secure government bailout money to cover their losses and subsequently use it to pay themselves massive bonuses?

Is that a central tenet of the tea party movement too Denise?

I canít see that going down too well with the average American but youíre entitled to hold that opinion. Iím curious though, whatís your reasoning behind defending the people who caused the collapse?

I'm not defending them Grinch. If memory serves me, though, didn't they have to 'voluntarily' return those bonuses last year or be threatened with a 100% tax on it? Didn't they also have their privacy invaded thanks to someone in D.C. giving the unions their private home addresses? They also were not the sole cause of the economic collapse. There were lots of other culprits involved, and plenty of them in D.C.

I don't remember where it was posted, Bob. I believe it was one of Jennifer's video postings. Maybe she can help you find it.

As to the saboteurs, check out the link I provided by Michelle Malkin.

     I think giving out addresses was wrong.  I think it was wrong in the case of the businesses, and I think it's wrong in the case of those anti-choice folks who give out the addresses of doctors who are willing to do abortions.  The difference seems to be substantial, in terms of the results that might be expected from such publication.  The business folk were afraid for their lives and for their physical safety, and a number of my right wing friends expressed concern that this sort of thing was dangerous.  It was.

     But were any of you objecting when O'Reilly was amping up the rhetoric against abortion providers by name, or when lists of addresses for abortion providers began appearing on the internet?

     Or did you simply believe that this sort of thing, when directed toward people you didn't approve of was simply natural exuberance?  Perhaps it was politically protected speech, folks on the left feel that sort is thing is valuable, too; but where were the dissenting voices from the right who might well have felt that such actions were foolish or dangerous and who might have predicted the outcome of such a general broadcast of inflammatory rhetoric?  I don't recall seeing any except afterwards.  Oops!  

     Sorry we didn't speak up the first time he was shot!  Can't think of why we didn't make a point of issuing condemnations of such disgusting behavior.  Now that Tiller's dead, of course, we can put the guy on trial for murder.  Thank goodness that let's the rest of us off the hook!
