Will occupiers turn their attention to Obama in Charlotte?

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Recently I returned from CPAC in DC, where a frothing mob of occupiers unsuccessfully tried to storm up the Marriott Wardman Parkway's private driveway to do who knows what. We learned that they were paid $60 each for the day. One can speculate extra stipends for dirty laundry for those prostrate, blocking streets and driveways. With the known hygiene of most of the occupiers, the rags would have been better off blazed in an EPA approved furnace. Baseball bats and other accessories were optional.

These are DC rates; hardly enough to supply a day of boozing, drugs and work avoidance in that government boom town.

Yes we can -- no you can't -- occupy without a chant

The Democrat's National Convention is scheduled this summer for Charlotte, N.C. The per diem for rent-a-thugs (RATS) there should be a lot cheaper—say $45 an hour. I would suggest we conservatives put our capitalism to work and hire these rent-a-thugs to march on the Marxists. Of course we'd make up our own chants:

  • Hey Hey Ho Ho Barack Obama has got to go!

  • Change and hope -- change and hope -- if you vote for Barry, you're a dope.

  • Hope and change, it just sucks -- can anyone here hook me up? (Hey, Occupiers have needs, too!)

  • One for you, ten for me, that's Barack's mentality.

  • Roses are red, violets are purple, we need to close down Barry's circle.

Anything beyond that would tax their memory and raise their per diem. I even have their leader picked out: Andrew Breitbart. You can't dismiss a man willing to chant against demonstrators while standing shoulder to shoulder with them — and beat them at their own game! This feat was added to Andrew's resume as he slung chants at the CPAC Ocs. He so made them lose their mojo.

You can beat anyone but rarely without a plan

It's not just that Obama has made Jimmy Carter a very happy ex-president. It's his hypocritically lack of conscience -- that condescending attitude that tells evil one percenters how they need to pay more. Then he coddles them at the Democratic National Convention with special million and half million dollar contribution covenants. Everything is based on benefiting the rich so the one percenters can be separated from their trust funds and stock options. They'll be held for ransom to pay their "fair share" to the Progressive cause, a deal which sells out the country but pardons the donors. They're the ones who will get the nod on new deals. Stimulus slush funds, AKA your money, will be jettisoned to a doomed-to-fail green company that inevitably fails but gives the Obama bundlers a golden bailout.

As hosts, North Carolina Governor Betty Perdue and Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx will be responsible for the security of the DNC. This is a critical job for the Dems, unlike actual governing. Remember Katrina where Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco and New Orleans Mayor Ray Dagin showed how Democrats operate under stress? Of course it was easy to weasel out from once we heard Farrakhan explain that it was Bush who blew up the levies.

Security might be a tough chore in light of the fact that most leaders in the Left have endorsed the cretins of the occupiers, who have committed countless crimes including rape, theft, arson and shooting up the White House where Obama's kids play. BTW, I find it ironic that the 2012 convention is being held in the state governed by the woman who advised we ought to postpone the same elections so we could get more liberal policy through Congress and more Progressive federal judges on the bench.

Even more Ironic, this convention will probably surpass the 70% of donations that came in at $250,000 and higher at the 2008 DNC in Denver. where dollars from just 12 contributors accounted for almost a fourth of the total $61 billion raised. Unions accounted for $8.3 billion or 14%, according to the Washington Street Beacon.

This could be the start of a new career for Breitbart. He could focus the whole occupier mob on the real disasters that ail this country: the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party.

That accomplished, Andrew can take on a new project: Media Matters.
