Occupy 2.0: More Fast Food Strikes In Multiple States

Occupy 2.0 on the move. Another day of coordinated fast food worker protests was held on July 29th in multiple states including Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, New York and Wisconsin. Some in Chicago even continued today, August 1st. The strikes focus on raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour.

Looking behind the curtain, we see the AFL-CIO, SEIU and their occupy foot soldiers at work and being given a cushy reception from the mainstream media complex….

Occupy 2.0: NC’s Triangle Jobs For Justice

We’ve learned that the SEIU is feeding offshoot groups to organize protests of workers in the fast food and retail industries. These groups are cropping up all over the country under a variety of names and include social justice themes, but all have the common goal of raising the minimum wage or talk about a ‘living wage’.

I’ve labeled these groups Occupy 2.0, since those running these groups usually have at least one staffer tied to Occupy and another to unions. Yesterday I pulled North Carolina’s ‘Moral Mondays’ protests and union presence into the mix: Continue reading

Overthrowing The Champions Of Mediocrity

Our children are under assault. I’m not just talking about the every growing list of scandals plaguing our schools, that if they were happening in any other institution, the media would be all over it. This assault is also not just from the various experiments in teaching, or the ridiculous over-reactions we’ve seen recently over pastries that look like they were bitten into the shape of a gun.

It’s an assault of stripping our children’s joy in achievement, of having friends and excelling in academics and in sports. It’s the underlying push for political correctness to be demonstrated at in all areas of school life. It’s the seemingly never-ending list of championing of mediocrity in the name of ‘fairness’:

No in school birthday parties.

No hugging your friends.

A trophy for just playing.

Kids told not to brag or be happy when they receive a good grade – even in college.

No recognition of outstanding achievement.

No cheering at graduation.

The message here is conform. Be like your everyone else, don’t step out of line. Don’t strive, don’t win. Winning is not the goal here, just showing up is. After all, it’s only fair. Continue reading

#Occupy – Suicide by Cop Attempt Ignored By MSM

Mostly peaceful except when trying to get cops to kill you. Did you see this story on the national news back in December 2011? Nope. No images of an occupier waving a gun around a public area whatsoever. If the guy had been a Tea Party member you would have though.

The video is a bit disturbing, but a testament to the efficiency of our police officers:

From the Houston Chronicle:

Joshua Anthony Twohig, the 21-year-old Houston man who was shot by police after shooting into the air at a downtown Occupy Houston rally last month, was trying to commit suicide by cop, his attorney said Friday.

“He was out there all by himself,” George Parnham said after Twohig was arraigned. “And, quite frankly, tried to commit suicide by cop and was almost successful.”

State District Judge Maria Jackson arraigned Twohig on one charge of aggravated assault on a public servant. The first-degree felony carries a maximum punishment of life in prison. He remains in the Harris County jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.

Twohig survived being shot twice by police Nov. 21 after opening fire at Tranquility Park with a .40-caliber rifle.

Twohig, who was not associated with the Occupy Houston movement, went to the park about 5:00 p.m. in a black suit, authorities said.

Witnesses said Twohig shouted, “Shoot me, shoot me” to HPD officers who arrived at the scene. A video captured by a witness shows Twohig holding the rifle to his head.

New Ad Hits Debbie Wasserman Shultz In the Occup-eye

I couldn’t resist the pun. Sorry.

From The Shark Tank, Javier Manjarres has this (video at bottom):

In what will very well be one of the most heated congressional races this election cycle. The race between Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and small business owner, Republican Karen Harrington, is already turning into one heck of a cat-fight.

Shortly after Harrington annihilated her Republican primary opponents with 48% of the vote, Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz took a swipe at Harrington by calling her,GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney and his VP pick, Congressman Paul Ryan as ‘

Extremist Republicans.’ Continue reading
