With all that happened today (Occupoopage, union thuggery, marching Marxists, Black Bloc vandalism, illegal alien protests, LGF TwitterFraud and the Campaigner In Chief taking credit for everything) I’m glad it’s over. Finally the day has come to an end.

And what an end it is, because we have the full back story covered on
The Overnight Open Thread.

    @ Lily:
    I was trying to catch up on the OWS May Day shenanigans.

    Doesn’t appear to be as effective as the OWS’ers hoped.

    Educated me if I was wrong -- just a quick perusal of today’s news on my end.

    @ 4 Lily: I’m not sure why they just don’t have a parade for mayday that celebrates the workforce and opens up communications. This random marching just leads to a lot of violence in front of kids.

    @ darkwords:

    Before I go…May Day is basically a communist holiday. I really don’t think we should make it a holiday here in the US. The mayhem today is because of a election year. All drummed up by all the OWS and the nefarious sorts.

    15 | May 1, 2012 11:45 pm

    Yep, Mayday is International Workers Day, established by the hardcore communists as a day of resistance to capitalism, and a celebration of the communist way.

    But May day started in Chicago anno 1886

    International Workers’ Day is the commemoration of the 1886 Haymarket affair in Chicago, which occurred after an unknown person threw a dynamite bomb at police as they dispersed a public assembly during a general strike for the eight-hour workday. In response, the Chicago police fired on the workers killing dozens of demonstrators and several of their own officers.[1][2][3][4] In 1889, the first congress of the Second International, meeting in Paris for the centennial of the French Revolution and the Exposition Universelle, following a proposal by Raymond Lavigne, called for international demonstrations on the 1890 anniversary of the Chicago protests.[5] May Day was formally recognized as an annual event at the International’s second congress in 1891.

    To be fair: at that time labor conditions in chicago were inhuman and unacceptable and the workers had every right to protest and to strike against the robber barons.

    @ Lily:
    Dang. I can’t hang here like I used to. Too much other stuff flying around my ears these days. Bats are no fun.

    And nobody liked the “RedRump” punnage enough to mention the brilliance of it all? Nobody wanted to comment on how XCitizen10 completely PWND Charles Johnson and exposed the Twitter spam-report fraud?


  30. 31 | May 2, 2012 3:39 am

    @ Guggi:
    There were never any such people as “robber barons.” Employers were working within the laws of the time.


  31. 32 | May 2, 2012 3:44 am

    @ Guggi:

    To be fair: at that time labor conditions in chicago were inhuman

    Nobody forced anyone to work at gunpoint. Inhuman conditions? You’re reiterating a modern myth. Was it tough work? Yeah. Were the workers enslaved? No.


  32. 33 | May 2, 2012 3:54 am

    @ Guggi:
    Do you think labor was tougher anywhere else in this country at the time? It’ wasn’t. Chicago labor activists/thugs just happened to have a knack for telling the workers that they could make demands of their employers by force in lieu of negotiation.

    The laborers could have moved on if the pay was too low or the conditions were unacceptable… but they didn’t. That’s the key.


  33. 34 | May 2, 2012 4:03 am

    @ Bunk X:
    To clarify my opinion, what the unions did in the early 1900s was a good thing, because they forced the federal government to enact laws to protect the workers from exploitation and hazards. Once those laws were in place, the unions had no further purpose, except for their own economic interests. Today they have no purpose other than extortion.

    You just told me that there was no such thing as “robber barons” and now you claim that there were indeed exploitation and hazards and some regulation was in need ?

    John Galtung (this piece of sh*t) about Breivik and Israel:

    Pioneer of global peace studies hints at link between Norway massacre and Mossad

    In several anti-Semitic remarks, Norwegian sociologist Johan Galtung also defends ‘The Protocols of the Elders of Zion’ and says Jewish influence was one of the factors leading to Auschwitz.

    (…)

    Among other statements, Galtung claimed that a possible connection exists between the terrorist responsible for the massacre of children in Norway last summer, and the Mossad. “The Jews control U.S. media, and divert for the sake of Israel,” wrote Galtung in an article published in Norway.

    (…)

    Galtung also recommended reading “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” – one of the most popular anti-Semitic texts in the world.

    (…)

    Among other claims, Galtung stated that there is a possible link between Anders Behring Breivik, responsible for massacring dozens of children in Norway last summer, and Jewish and Israeli factions. The connection is supposedly based on the fact that the murderer has ties to the “Freemasons” organization, “which has Jewish origins,” according to Galtung. The supposed connection to Israel is through the Mossad – which Galtung believes might have given Breivik his orders.

    (…)

    Good morning Comrades. I bring you greetings from our
    Maximum Leader, President for Life, Barack Obama.
    Loyal Cadres took to the streets yesterday to expose
    the greedy capitalists and advance Glorious Revolution.
    Our Comrades in the Media continue to advance our cause
    while omitting inconvenient information that could only
    confuse the masses.
    Our disinformation campaign on behalf of the Dear Leader
    is showing grest success and has not yet resched full
    power.
    Continue to read our talking points every morning to
    confuse and mock the reactionary forces.
    I wish you Hope & Change. No wait that’s not it.
    I wish fou “Forward” or something.

    Morning. (quite a rump)

    So, McCain shows interest in missing tourist:

    http://www.foxnews.com/world/2012/05/01/mccain-to-look-into-case-yvonne-baldelli-american-missing-in-panama/?test=latestnews

    Would have been nice if he had shown an interest in live POWs

    @ spinmore:

    McCain & the collaborator John Kerry traveled to Hanoi
    about 10 years ago & visited their War Museum where American
    deaths are celebrated.
    McCain actually embraced his now aged captors who tortured
    him.
    The stated goal was to promote trade. I wonder if
    the two Johnies negotiated commissions for their efforts?
    McCain was a heroic young man , but he is a disgusting
    old man.

    @ RIX:

    in the interest of ‘full disclosure’ :) -- i have praised McCain (here) for his service to country and for what he endured in captivity.
    Since, i just finished reading the book “Kiss The Boys Goodbye” by Monika Jensen-Stevenson (c)1990
    . . . my head is still reeling from what i’ve read about live POWs in S.E. Asia
    If, as Senator, McCain (and others) have ignored the plight of live Americans in VN and surrounding countries -- SHAME on THEM!
    (i have a book on shelf by McCain -- “Why Courage Matters” *laughs/shakes head*

    @ RIX:

    my understanding (evolving) is that many of these ‘official’ acts (the visit you mention) along with the ‘release’ of some remains (bones) from the bone-bank, are part of the distraction from the underlying shameful act of abandonment of real, live, American captives.
