    I found it quite ironic that if it were not for the word "socialist" in the opening banner, it could have been a Tea Party rally I was about to watch. It's amazing how close people really are in what they want but so far apart in how they want to bring it about.

    So it was a liberal tea party? Shocking...

    This is why there is a Rally to Restore Sanity.

    So you don't value our right in this country to proudly display our views, good to know.

    Tell me, are you actually an American or just engage in the empty rhetoric?

    AforP? Hmm, what might that be? coughcoughKochcoughcoughKochcough

    But did I hear someone mention "Tea Party"? Damn those lefties, they seem to have stolen the idea and fed it into a time machine.

    It's just too funny to be real... but it is.

    But I thought when there were racist signs at a teabagging rally, it was just selective editing by the liberal media and it was just a few bad apples and they did not represent the teabaggers as a whole.

    I guess it doesn't work the other way around?

    That's both hilarious and encouraging.

    Also encouraging, the tea party convention that was scheduled in Las Vegas was canceled.

    My emphasis.

    You have to learn the cinematographic language: note that the first shot shows the mall and the Lincoln Memorial some distance away. There is a crowd, but camera placement gives it short-shrift, especially the way we see almost no one across the pool. Having established this, the camera pans around to the cluster of socialists. Note how they are over there, across the water, way at the back: marginalized. Now we take the full brunt of their extremism, which tells us that the left-ward movement tolerates these kind of slobbering subhumans. Notice also how clean and professional the camera work is: tea party events are frequently shown in cinema-verité with muddy, unprofessional sound, which gives the impression of folks-like-us, not those elitist dems who can afford to pay camera crews.

    This seems to confirm that there is big money and clever, well-paid strategists behind this populist movement. Probably the worst combination imaginable.

    Also, of note is the banner at the end which marks this as the work of Americans for Prosperity, a known conservative political action group. Not exactly unbiased footage and that's before we get to the Soviet men's chorus singing the anthem, which is a cute touch.

    Amazing how poor of a turnout they had considering the amounts of union money spent to bus members in from across the country. I guess if your idea is a unionized sub standard workforce as the future, then have at it.

    It's better than what we have now, which is a work force subject to the whim of employers. It's not so good for employees out there right now, or haven't you been keeping up with the news?

    Lee, employees are terrible, terrible people. I'm surprised you didn't know that.

    I, personally, am glad Republicans don't want to give them tax cuts or pass bills that will stop outsourcing (like the one they just killed in congress). Once we get rid of all American employees, then we can "have our country back!"

    Not sure when these were taken on their respective days, but interesting nonetheless...

    It really is beginning to look that way, isn't it?

    Jobs are created by employers, not employees. I do keep up with the news, I do my best to excel in my job and prove my worth. I do not go a single day thinking I am owed a job, I work to stay ahead. What about you?



    Oh, one thing this rally is credited with that the other was not, trashing the mall. Amazing for so few people to make such a mess, but then again the goon union mentality is evident.

    I do not think I'm owed a job either. WTF did you get that? But I do expect to be paid just as much as the person under me who got fired did, not less. I work my a** off and busted my butt to get where I am, to get very little reward, just lots of kind words and good reviews. Kind words and good reviews do not pay the bills. This is happening with more frequency these days. I hope to be leaving this job soon for much greener pastures. This one ain't cuttin' it.

    It also cracks me up how you conservatives somehow think that no one else but you has a work ethic. It's sickening BS and you need to be called on it. Just because the balance between workers and employers is grossly out of proportion and someone talks about it, does not mean they think they are "owed a job". God, you people can twist anything.

    Apparently they think the desire to work hard and achieve anything goes hand in hand with becoming a selfish arsehole :)

    (LOL that the profanity filter allows the UK spelling of that :D)

    It's insane! I've been on my own since age 19 and had a job since I was old enough to work. I worked my own way to where I am. Shivvy probably had Mommy and Daddy pay for college and yet still spouts this BS.
