During the Tuesday rally – a gathering of more than 1,000 union supporters protesting a proposal by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker to diminish the collective bargaining rights of public sector workers in that state – Capuano, speaking in front of the State House, fired up the crowd by saying, “I’m proud to be here with people who understand that it’s more than just sending an email to get you going. Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary.”

Well, Sometimes it is hard to ignore what is going on in the world. What I am finding funny (not really) is that all of these protests that are going on in this country, are spewing words of hate, and calling for violence, but the people on the left choose to ignore it, or even worse, in this case, encouraging it. The tea party was such hate mongers according to the left, but stay silent now. I wonder why that is.

I come here, and some topics get brought up, but some of those same people who spoke out against the tea party, Don, Oyey, don't have much to say about whats going on. Don says it is the people on the right who is starting class warfare, but when confronted with simple common sense questions, he stays silent.

Now I don't suspect that the people on here ( sorry to call out Don and Oyey, but they were the first people who came to mind. ) Who are on the left, do and will stand with groups like Colorado socialist party, or with the extreme left people here who are calling for revolution and the destruction of the republic. ( and yes, they are, it is no longer a conspiracy theory ) But maybe deep down in my American loving blood, hopes that those who spoke out so harshly about the tea party, come out, and at the very least express a small amount of concern about the direction their party is going. Express a small amount of interest and concern about the groups that are organizing, and putting on these rallies around the country, and what their real goal is. Thinking that it is only an uprising of union members who feel they are under attack, is naive at best.

Now in light of my rant, having a good feeling that I know what direction this will go, if the discussion is continued, I will concede, Yes their are racist elements that have attached themselves to the tea party. Yes some people on the right, have used rhetoric that can be taken as a call for violence. Yes there are people on the right who are crazy, and are a part of some crazy radical groups themselves. But in saying that, It has to be accepted that people in the tea party, or people like myself, who don't stand with the tea party, but agree with a great deal of what they stand for, do not stand with these people. We don't agree with these people. We, to the best of our knowledge, don't stand with these people. The uprising from the unions, and the people on the left, stand side by side with the same amount of crazies, and groups with anti American sentiment, truly living up to the words, The enemy of my enemy is my friend. And I just hope, maybe I am naive, that those, who I see on here, who I truly believe stand for something different than what we are seeing play out here, at least say so.

Sorry, sometimes it feels good for me to get a rant of of my chest, and I am sorry if you don't agree that this is the place to do it. But, even if it is a just small amount, I feel Im speaking to those people that know me, and I know them.

I've tried to stay out of these political topics for the past couple of months, but I backslide every now and then. :D You have your opinions, I have mine. Neither of us will change the other's mind. When I do chime in, it's just to attempt to bring a little much needed balance to a right-leaning website.

And, yes, it is the far right who has initiated this new class struggle in America. How will it end? Beats me.

Sorry bud!!! ::) ;D Good thing I have my tea!! >:D
One thing good that nobody can argue about...when something bad happens to us all as a country like this crap with the thwarted U.S. terror plot, we all come together as one! Not a left or right thing, not a black, white, yellow or red thing...we all stand as one and can argee on one thing...We are all Americans and we are still strong and proud!!!
