Obama’s Friends March in California

Posted by Nancy on May 7, 2011

Former SEIU president Andy Stern has visited the White House more than any other person since the president took office, so they must have some common interests.  What could they be, and what has the SEIU been up to lately? 

Why, marching with Communists, or course.

Those on the left used to become outraged at the mere mention of the socialist/communist affiliations of friends of Obama’s administration, but now they seem to be flaunting it. Here the Communists and union members (SEIU, AFL-CIO, and teachers) are chanting “Legalization or Revolution.”

There are more pictures and videos of the event at Pajamas Media, which links to a full-length photo essay at Ringo’s Pictures.

How about that extensive coverage of this event by the Main Stream Media?  Hmm, I must have missed that.

Nothing to see here, move along.  But don’t be surprised if demonstrations proliferate this summer and boil over next year before the election.  That’s what community organizers excel at, after all.

Money, Elections, SEIU, and Ohio

Posted by Nancy on May 4, 2010

Today was primary election day in Ohio, and their Democratic governor ran unopposed.  He also started his bid for re-election in November’s general election.

Nothing like going negative first thing, using a recycled ad originally paid for by the SEIU.

Strickland’s current ad:

Compare that to this 2009 presidential ad:

Same factory in the background, same actress (who, according to thirdbasepolitics, is gainfully employed as a nurse), same sad story.  An honest presentation would mention that Ted Strickland does not want to see NAFTA overturned.

Declaring that it is “not the time for a trade war,” Gov. Ted Strickland appeared today to approve of President Barack Obama’s decision last week not to reopen the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico.  Columbus Dispatch Feb 22, 2009

I hope the voters in Ohio are paying attention as their governor begins his purported $500k in ad buys. 

Half a million for a governorship while Congressional Democrats complain about the Citizens United ruling by the Supreme Court.  Democracy is for sale and the Democrats want to decide who can get in on the bidding.
