Mind Numbed Robot has a great post up about how the Democrats Lust for Power at Any Cost - I highly recommend that you read it and not just because Robot linked to my "Conservative" Dhimmitude post there - good stuff.
Matt at the Conservative Hideout writes about how the left is completely devoid of anyone functioning as grownups. EXCERPT:
I’m certain that I’m not the only person that has noticed that the liberals tend to act like petulant children when they “don’t get their way.” One has to look no further than the recent happenings in the Wisconsin State Legislature to see how far we have fallen.Remember the poem Casey at the Bat? Well, Barry has had his mighty Casey moment up at the bat for his goonions, and he has struck out in grand failure. Read about it in Neil Braithwaite's article at American Thinker. Ever since I saw that, I've had that old Grateful Dead tune in my head all day, and you know how Barry loves those trains and cocaine...
So what’s going on? Why has does the left descend into tantrums when reality intervenes and ruins their plans? Why do they deny others the right to speak by shouting them down? Why do so many adults abandon reason and self-control when life throws a wrench into their works? What happened to the work ethic? Why do so many people think, or DEMAND, that the taxpayer provide for them? Why do they resort to violence when their demands are not met? These are all questions we have asked. I would like to offer an explanation.
For those of you that have children, or work with children, have you ever tried to talk to a tantruming child? Have you ever talked to a teen that thinks they know everything, and facts and reason simply don’t enter into their thinking? Have you ever tried to debate a liberal? Are you seeing the connection? That’s where we are, in my opinion. We are dealing with people that haven’t grown up yet, or never will. How else might you explain that liberal protests often end in vandalism, rioting, and abuse of others? I mean, I’ve never seen Conservatives so angry as there are now, but they have rallies and clean up after themselves, often leaving the area cleaner than how they found it. They do not engage in violence, or vandalism. I can’t imagine that happening at a rent-a-mob protest, say, at the G20. What’s the difference?
When a child is told “no” they have a number of options on how to react; they might pitch a fit, they might cooperate and get over it, or they may sulk and become passive aggressive, among others. If the child pitches a fit, and it succeeds in achieving their goal, they will continue using this response until life intervenes and makes that behavior ineffective or unprofitable for them. Doesn’t their reactions to losing a vote, or demanding a result, look like temper tantrums? Also, if organizations, governments, or individuals “cave in” when the liberals whine, threaten, and protest; you might suspect that they’ll do it again. After all, it worked all those other times! RTR
At The Lonely Conservative, you can read about how Barry's BFF and goonion honcho Richard Trumka has been urging the Obama administration to raise the national gas tax. Like Americans aren't already struggling enough even as Mrs. O frolics in Vail and gorges herself at expensive restaurants (while chastising Americans about what THEY should be allowed to eat or feed their kids) and the Obamas have party after party (on our dime). Related: Does Obama Want $8 Gasoline? I suspect that he does.
Speaking of energy prices and the cost of gassing up, check out "Mission Accomplished" at Doug Ross where Doug provides a spiffy chart showing what has happened to those prices in the past two years and reminds you of Obama's own words:
"Under my plan of a cap and trade system, [energy prices] would necessarily skyrocket. Even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad. Because I’m capping greenhouse gases, coal power plants, you know, natural gas, you name it — whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was... [t]hey will pass that money on to consumers." --Barack Obama, 1 November 2008WTGwtf!
Jammie Wearing Fool has a post about how the goonion chaos is tearing Wisconsin families and friends apart. Also, see the video posted there showing how CRAPTASTIC goonion minions treat a War Memorial and actually try to defend what they have done. Sad stuff, really.
There have been many videos of goonion thuggery caught on camera in the past few days, be sure to see the one at The Lonely Conservative of a goonion minion assaulting and threatening to anally rape a cameraman.
Sad Hill News has a letter posted from the SEIU to America saying that they'll turn other states into Wisconsin and lots of other great links that you should check out too.
Invincible Armor has a great link-around for you in the post, "What's A Guy To Do? Thugs In The Streets And Capitols, Citizens Trapped In Foreign Countries And More - So, PAARTEE".
See The Underground Conservative for a post about how goonion Thugs Take Over RPW Offices in Wisconsin, complete with pictures.
Goonion agitators have a new theme song, read about it in James Taranto's article at the Wall Street Journal.
Michelle Malkin has been all over the goonion madness, here are just two of her must read posts, but check out the others there as well: More Union Civility: Eyewitness to Boston thuggery; Plus: Die, elderly Tea Partiers, die! and Hate-a-rama: The vulgar, racist, sexist, homophobic rage of the Left
Another place to get caught up on all the latest goonion nastiness (along with Barry's destructive ineptitude) is Gateway Pundit. Jim Hoft has a video of a MoveOn.org protester in Missouri saying some seriously messed up ugly and racist stuff to a black TEA Partier. See it & read about it HERE.
TL In Exile has some sobering pictures and an important message for all of us; you have got to get up and get out to fight this insanity if you can, and if you can't, there are other ways to support the resistance to the goonion thugs and the CRAPTASTIC agenda to destroy this country and usurp your freedom. Please read his post, take it to heart, and then do what you can. READ IT HERE.
If you want to know why the goonions and progs have REALLY gone rabid over what Governor Walker is trying to do in Wisconsin, read THIS post at Doug Ross: Wisconsin's largest teachers' union is an extremely profitable insurance business that happens to provide services to children on the side
This fight is about more than just benefits: it's about a rigged insurance operation that no one in their right mind would choose if given a real choice in the matter.(H/T Adrienne's Corner)
WEA Trust stands to lose millions through Governor Walker's heroic actions on behalf of the taxpayer - which is why the union bosses have reacted with violence, angry rhetoric and near-riots in the state capitol.
It has nothing to do with the kids. They want to steal more of your money with a crooked, rigged insurance scam.
When the goonions rallied in New jersey, they left a while bunch of disabled and critically ill people stranded because goonion bus drivers who normally transport them staged a "sickout". Read about it at RedState.Some of the people who were left waiting for buses that never came needed to those rides to take them to life saving dialysis treatments.

My friend, fellow Potluck and Stone Soup blogger, Adrienne has two terrific posts up at her place about what's been going on that I really hope you'll read...
Check out the pictures of how the goonion agitators are disrespecting the Capital building in Madison in the post titled, "Governor Walker has displayed admirable restraint..."
Be sure to read, "It's time to wake up... and take a stand." EXCERPT:
If the events of the past week are not enough of a wake up call to the citizens of this country of how far we have slid down the dark tunnel ofIt is getting late here in the Zilla house, and while I have barely scratched the surface of the craziness engulfing our country, this post is already plenty long, so I'll just close it out with one last link for y'all to check out, this one from Right Wing News about how Barry is THE Most Lawless President Ever. It truly is a must read.
socialismcommunism, then we are lost.
We have a president who decides to not enforce a law because he "doesn't think it's constitutional" while ignoring the courts decision on ObamaCare. While he has the right to think whatever he wishes about some law or another being 'unconstitutional", he doesn't have the right to ignore it. RTR
If this country manages to survive the rest of Obama's miserable term, I hope and pray that America will choose more wisely to fill the Oval Office in 2012. There is only one person who I want to see in there, and that person is Congressman Allen West. I am not alone on this, check out the facebook page dedicated to making it happen:
Rep. Lt. Col. Allen B. West for President of the United States 2012
