you know what they are.

It happened Wednesday night at the beginning of a debate between Democratic incumbent Melissa Bean, GOP challenger Joe Walsh and Green Party candidate Bill Scheurer. The debate for Illinois 8th congressional district took place at Grayslake Central High School. While League of Women Voters moderator Kathy Tate-Bradish began explaining the rules of the debate an audience member raised his hand and (when called upon) asked if they were going to start with the Pledge of Allegiance. When she said no, the audience booed and almost all in the crowd of more than 300 stood and enthusiastically recited it anyway. Tate-Bradish, who joined in the pledge, issued a scolding when the crowd finished saying they are not allowed to disrespect her.

Ms Tate-Bradish took offense to the move and blamed it on the GOP candidate.

Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) has some explaining to do to the nation’s veterans. While attacking his opponent, Republican Patrick Murray, Moran said Republicans use “stealth candidates, that haven’t been in office, haven’t served or performed in any kind of public service.“

Moran’s opponent happens to be Col. Patrick Murray (US Army-Ret.), who served 24 years in uniform, was deployed to four different combat zones, including Baghdad, as part of the 2007 troop surge under Gen. David Petraeus, and has actually “seen the elephant*.” But Moran actually sneers at it, claiming that Murray had “taken a government check” for 24 years as a member of the military, as if it were equivalent to government “assistance.”

Is it any wonder why Dhimmicretins are trying to deny soldiers the right to vote?

A Chicago Park District employee criticizes his union leaders’ choices of candidates and causes, and rejects the union’s endorsement for governor. Conversation took place at the Palos Tea Party’s American Voter Rally in Tinley Park, IL, 10.10.2010.

The message he needs to leave on the unions voicemail is, “I have found a lawyer to bring suit under the provisions of “Communications Workers of America v. Beck

From “Blocking Beck”:

The Supreme Court’s 1988 decision in Communications Workers of America v. Beck established that union members and nonunion workers who are forced to contribute to unions cannot have their funds used for political purposes without their consent. Beck offered two potentially major benefits. First, it could have restored control of their money to individual workers. And second, since as much as 80 percent of dues are used for political purposes rather than to negotiate better salaries or working conditions, it could have reduced the ability of unions to wield political power that limits free markets.

As we go through the mid-term election cycle and hear the “sound and fury signifying nothing”, this list always comes to mind (1, 8, & 9 are especially apt as the government is devaluing the dollar as a coping mechanism for a obscene amount of debt):

1. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
2. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong
3. You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich.
4. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
5. You cannot build character and courage by taking away man’s initiative and independence.
6. You cannot help small men by tearing down big men.
7. You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
8. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income.
9. You cannot establish security on borrowed money.
10. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they will not do for themselves.

And no, this is not the work of Abraham Lincoln, but rather by the Rev. William J. H. Boetcker, a Presbyterian clergyman in 1916.
