I am the most wanted man on my island; but I'm not on my island. More's the pity.

The first duty of a revolutionary is to get away with it.

-Abbie Hoffman

Hat tip to Bitchitude for this:

My political frame of mind is one in its own, I admit. When I see shit like THIS I have no qualms about stepping up to the plate and speaking my piece.

I am truly embarrassed and ashamed to say I ever lived in the State of Washington. I am horrified at the rampant ignorance these spoiled pukes displayed in their blatant presentation of said ignorance.

Go ahead, click the link. You know you want to look. Here's the AP caption:

Sgt. 1st Class Jeff Due, right, a U.S. Army recruiter, is surrounded by protesters at Seattle Central Community College, Thursday, Jan. 20, 2005, in Seattle. After about a 10-minute standoff during which protesters tore up U.S Army literature, the protesters were successful in getting Due and another recruiter to leave their table under escort by campus security officers. Several hundred students walked out of classes at several Seattle colleges and universities to protest the inauguration of President Bush.

Subtitle (Hat Tip to The Donegal Express):


First thought on my mind? What are these people so /happy/ about? What, are you proud of your bravery in standing up to "the military"? Oh please, do you really think this guy couldn't have whipped all of you if he wasn't a civilized human being? Let's be honest, the only one in the entire lot that looks like he could take a punch is that big chick in the white shirt in the back left corner. She might go toe to toe for a couple minutes, maybe.

Secondly, let me break the news to you:

You're attending Seattle Central Community College! Way to go. You've obviously all made some smart life choices to get to that plateau. I can just see how that went down. "Harvard, Yale, MIT, USC, or Seattle Central Community College?" I guess U. Dub's loss is their gain.

Whenever I see junk like this, I always think WWFRD? Yes, What Would Frank Rizzo do? I'll tell you what he'd do.

First, he'd respond to the problem, and start arresting some punks. Then, when the administration would whine and complain, he'd promptly release them.

For the next five months, not one cop would respond to a call within five blocks of the college within two hours. He'd let the place slide into the Seventh level of Hell. Muggers, thugs and vandals would flock to the safe zone that would be in effect. In short, that neighborhood would look like Escape From New York. And then, when there's all sorts of wailing and nashing of teeth, he'd just say, "I thought we were fascist thugs who were oppressing your students?"

Ok, maybe Frank Rizzo wouldn't do that, maybe that's me. But it does make me think of something he /did/ do.

While Rizzo was mayor, the Pope visited in 1979. As I'm sure you all realize, this invited every nutjob left winger hater out of the woodwork. The Pope was going to give a speech in town, I can't remember at which indoor venue, and dozens of these pieces of sewage bought front row seats. Word on the street was they were going to bring some toys (more puppets and drums), and try to drown out the Pope.

What did Frank Rizzo do?

Frank Rizzo went down to the local Union Halls and got about three dozen of the boys together. We're talking huge dudes that were either Polish, Irish, or Italian, and of course, Catholic. The kind of guys Harry Truman would have remarked about, "All they do is drink, fight amongst themselves and go to Mass." Frank Rizzo then got these guys tickets in the row right behind the left-wing maggots.

Oh, there was no protest that night. Go figure.
