SHOCKER: Geriatric Guy Talks Dirty to 17 Year Old Patriot *UPDATE* Help ID the Perv

Reading Time: 1 minutes

In this disturbing video, an old union guy vividly describes tea-bagging to a 17-year-old high schooler. The reason?  The kid had the audacity to hand out free US Constitutions.

As you’ll see in the video from P/Oed Patriot and Sharp Elbows, the site of the Constitution at a union rally is like a crucifix and a pound of garlic in a vampire den.  You can actually watch as the document’s presence weakens the aging leftists. They age before your eyes.

Shocking.

The young man passing out Constitutions consented to the release of this video.

*UPDATE*  If you have any information on the identity of the old man in the cap, please email anonymously to tips@purplepeoplebeaters.com.

Here are full-on headshots of the pervert and his defender:

The Akin Example

Reading Time: 1 minutes

Todd Akin need doesn’t to build tea party street cred. He thumps primary and general election opponents in biennial blowouts for Missouri’s Second District.  Todd is also a legitimate, committed member of the US House Tea Party Caucus.  Todd Akin is the last politician who needs to prove his tea party cred.  We trust him.

Akin Lives the Message

So when Todd Akin dashed from Springfield to Jefferson City to address the "Restore Common Sense” rally on the south steps of the Missouri Capitol, he didn’t do it to “prove” anything.  He did it because Todd Akin believes what we believe: that governments and unions for government workers are bankrupting our futures.

Todd Akin didn’t need the message embodied by the tea party—Todd Akin lives and breathes the spirit of the tea party. 

We need more Todd Akins in every level of government.

What You Can Do

When our politicians do the right thing, we need to be as loud in support as we are in dissent when they stray.  Let’s begin by sending Todd Akin a thank you note for making the 5-hour round trip to Jefferson City today.

Unions Go Berserk

Reading Time: 1 minutes

Obama’s friends in the public-sector unions stage embarrassing rallies to demand more, More, MORE of other people’s money.

These aren’t unions that represent people who work in mines and factories.  No, these are unions representing people who live off your and my tax dollars.  (BTW,the military doesn’t have a union.)

So let’s see  . . . The government does a bunch of stuff we don’t want them to do.  The people who did it get paid twice as much as the people who pay them.  And these people who make double our salaries who do stuff we ask them to stop are striking and vandalizing cities because they’re afraid they might be asked to live a little more like the rest of us.

I say it’s time to heed Franklin Roosevelt’s grim warning about the evils of public-sector unions

"The process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service," Roosevelt wrote in 1937 to the National Federation of Federal Employees. Yes, public workers may demand fair treatment, wrote Roosevelt. But, he wrote, "I want to emphasize my conviction that militant tactics have no place" in the public sector. "A strike of public employees manifests nothing less than an intent on their part to prevent or obstruct the operations of Government."

It’s time to eliminate collective bargaining for government workers.  

Why I Support the Board of Police Commissioners

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The battle over the St. Louis Board of Police Commissioners is coming to a head in Jefferson City.  Others (see www.24thstate. com)  have documented the board’s odd history and surprising success. I’ve pointed out that the Constitution is silent on the matter. With legislation coming to a vote, I’ll state my personal position flat out.

I believe that abolishing the Board would be a setback, not just for St. Louis Police Officers, not just for the city of St. Louis, but for entire region. 

First, St. Louis City government is a wreck.  Decades of one-party rule has driven away people and businesses.  The St. Louis Public Schools had to be seized by  the state because of perpetual incompetence.  The last thing this city needs is a police department as corrupt and ineffective as the rest of City Hall.

Second, the most prominent opponents of the board, like Rep. Jamila Nasheed, represent the most radical elements of Missouri politics.  Nasheed is closely allied with the New Black Panther Party

Third, the St. Louis Police Department, despite its many challenges, has been and remains one of the premier metropolitan forces in the country.  That’s due in part to the oversight from the governor-appointed board.  Without that board, every police officer will work at the pleasure of the mayor of St. Louis. 

Fourth, I question the measures taken to get this legislation through the Missouri House.  I don’t have anything against Rex Sinquefield, but I would like to know what his end-game is.  Sinquefield, who opposes the state-appointed board, invested $200,000 in Steve Tilley’s uncontested race for the Missouri House.  Tilley subsequently used his position as speaker to drive this legislation through. 

Tilley’s extraordinary efforts include appointing a radical member of the House as chairwoman of the Urban Affairs committee, assigning HB71—the bill to abolish the Board of Police Commissioners—to that committee, and, regrettably, to resort to smearing opponents of his legislation as race-baiters.  (I will discuss this more in a later post.)

A Little Help for a Great Friend

Reading Time: 1 minutes

The first St. Louis Tea Partier was Michelle Moore.  In the annals of the Tea Party movement, the first action was a conference call held February 20, 2009.  The only St. Louisan known to be on that call was Michelle Moore.

Now, Michelle needs our help.  Michelle needs a kidney.  She details everything (in living color) on her blog, A Traditional Life Lived

If you can help—if you can’t point a donor her way—please do.  And if you can’t, prayers are always welcome.
