Pampered Protesters

by Michael Reagan

The hordes of so-called “protesters” now polluting the streets of several U.S. cities, including New York, are sending confused messages about their grievances.

The unemployed among them complain that the jobs available to them are beneath them. I guess that cancels out the old concept of starting in the mailroom and advancing step-by-step to the boardroom. It used to be the norm that one started at the bottom and worked his way up. This bunch seems to be living under the delusion that simply by virtue of having been born they are entitled to immediate arrival at the boardroom level with appropriate compensation.

Viewing these unruly mob scenes, featuring numerous public sexual activities posing as protests, I am reminded of the manner in which my dad dealt with such malcontents. If they were government employees he simply fired them. It worked. The remaining ones slinked back to work.

And I recall how he dealt with his son (me) back in 1965, when I dropped out of Arizona State University and thought that I was simply going home to live with — and off — either my mom or dad, who were then divorced. When I got home I found that their doors were locked to college dropouts.

Nancy, my ever-loving stepmom, was busy calling all branches of the military to let them know I was a college dropout and thus now eligible to be drafted. Don’t you just love such devoted stepmothers, eager to help their stepsons make their way in the world by locking the doors to keep them out?

When I finally was able to speak to my parents, they simply told me to find another place to live and to get a job. I did both. I moved in with some friends and got a job working at Asbury Transportation Company in Los Angeles loading oil-well freight from 5:00 p.m. to 1:30 a.m., Monday through Friday. That’s where I was working when my father was elected governor of California.

Did I complain that my lowly job was beneath my new station in life as the son of the governor of California? How could I? I was the one who set that bar low when I dropped out of college. So, to all you spoiled brats marching and wanting better pay or bigger allowances: take a good, long look in the mirror, not at Wall Street, and if you want to blame something blame ObamaCare! Your employers or parents have to spend the money you might have received in raises to pay for that socialist monstrosity.

I am still amazed that these kids can find time to congregate in city streets, which are in many cases far from their hometowns. Somebody has to be paying their way; in most cases their beleaguered parents are stuck with the bill for their latest adventure, which has nothing to do with education and a lot to do with left-wing politics and public lovemaking.

And the media willingly — indeed, eagerly — give the protesters lots of free publicity. Media outlets should start ignoring them, and we’ll see how fast they disband and slink back home. They thrive on the publicity the media provide.

Finally, the long-suffering parents ought to close their pockets and deny their wayward brats the money that allows them to travel to the big city to make pests of themselves.

Go home. Now. But before you do, clean up the messes you have made.

    So are you insinuating they don’t have every right to be scared, angry, or resentful? Bah.i love how you categorize… As if every unemployed protester is saying jobs are beneath them. Are you sure Any Of them actually said it? Go ahead and be angry at a group of people who are actually taking a stand instead of just campaigning about things in a blog.

      You must be living with your parents. That’s no crime, if you’re not sponging off of them. And your idea of a good protest is to shit and urinate in the streets, leave it there, make love in the streets while you are at it, this is a protest? I don’t think so. These things are kept private for a reason. There is no message of protest given by these objectionable shows except immaturity, possibly insanity. People who are serious about making a point of wanting a socialist government don’t pee in the streets or have sex there. They don’t make a mess otherwise either. If you want people to take you seriously, you behave yourself seriously. You stick to the point and not go off the deep end by doing these things. As it is, no one is taking these protesters seriously because they did do these things. They behaved irresponsibly. They proved themselves to be the scum of society, and if they were ever nice, we’ll never know it. I hope they get off of whatever it is they are on, and if you want a decent protest, why don’t you form it yourself? But make sure to protest responsibly so others will take you seriously. Otherwise it will just be a fiasco, like this one was.

    Really Mikey? Well I’m here to tell you that trickle-down economics where the rich get richer and the poor get poorer didn’t work when your father was in office, and it STILL doesn’t work today. As a woman who spent 30 years in the work force working her way up the proverbial corporate ladder, I am PROUD of the Americans who are voicing their concerns. And entitled? Really? It’s not the guy who can’t put food on the table who’s entitled, it’s our F’d up Republican Congress! THEY are the ones who feel they are entitled. THEY are the ones who refuse to take a pay cut while also refusing to pass a jobs bill that would would provide relief for hundreds of thousands of unemployed Americans. THEY are the ones who passed into law that they’ll receive a pension for their lifetime that far exceeds anything most of the American public will ever see. THEY are the ones, under the direction of George Dubya, who gave huge tax breaks to and accepted lobbying bribes from the wealthiest corporations, while middle America pays the price. THEY are the ones who purposely avoided creating a healthcare plan, because most of their campaigns were being funded, at least in part, by the corrupt and greedy drug companies. So when you talk about entitlement, don’t accuse the American people who are sick and tired of the crap. It’s our Republican Congress people who really know the definition of that word and practice it every day.

      Unfortunately, the protesters are protesting in the wrong places. They SHOULD be protesting in Washington D.C. where all of these troubles originated. I’m apparently not as blindly partisan as the “Retired Editor”, as it’s easy to see that there’s plenty of blame to cover BOTH sides of the aisle in D.C.
      In response to her little biased rant, let me ask how many Democrat Congress people have taken pay cuts?
      Why pass the supposed “Jobs Bill” in its present form, since so much of it is the same stuff that the last “stimulus” bill contained, that failed so miserably? Does the President think that changing the name from stimulus to “Jobs Bill” will somehow make the failed policies work?
      The lifetime pension you refer to was passed long before the Republicans serving in Congress were even there, and I’m sure if you check the record, there were numerous Democrats voting themselves the same benefit.
      Get over it. President Bush is no longer in office. HIS “huge tax breaks” expired. The current “huge tax breaks” were signed into law by Obama and a whole bunch of your beloved Democrats in Congress.
      There already was a healthcare plan, more than one in fact. Ever hear of Medicare and Medicaid? And while we’re on the subject, let’s set the record straight. No one, I repeat NO ONE in this country has to go without medical assistance. Everyone can go to a hospital if they need assistance. They don’t lack healthcare, they lack insurance.
      I will agree with you that the American people are sick and tired of the (as you so eloquently put it) “crap”. I know I am. Some of the “crap” that tires me is the crap you ultra-biased liberals spew in your hatred of anyone that doesn’t see things your way. You use lies, misconstrued partial truths, foment hatred, promote divisiveness, blame blame blame everyone else, and anything else you can think of to avoid having to face the reality that it’s the whole system that is perverted. It’s the MAJORITY of Congress……BOTH parties that’s the problem. The country is served best when Congress is NOT in session. At least then they can’t mess things up any more. It’s obvious that facts aren’t your strong suit, since it’s harder to promote your agenda when the facts are put forward, but look at the bright side, avoiding the facts causes you to be more creative.
      That’s the end of MY rant. (for now)

      Retired Editor: Mikey wasn’t talking economics. He was talking rational behavior. Which is something the protesters didn’t have! Don’t be fussing at his father through him. Stick to the subject. And these Americans weren’t voicing their concerns. They were attempting to voice someone else’s concerns. Only, well, they just didn’t know enough about it to get it out of their mouth. These guys were, most of them, paid to be there. Liberals paid them to be there. It clearly wasn’t their own fight. That’s the thing. These Libs hired people off the streets or the kids of people they knew to protest, and these people didn’t have a clue what they were protesting. These people couldn’t voice their concerns. They didn’t have any. The idiots who hired them had concerns. A protest will only work if the people protesting know what they are protesting about. That’s why these scumballs used the bathroom in the streets, and on the police cars, and had sex in public. That’s insanity, not a protest. It reminds me of Woodstock, in the 1960′s, only they used the restrooms provided. I’ll tell you what Americans are sick and tired of. We’re sick and tired of leaders who want to force things on us without a vote. Things that cost us a fortune. Things that will put our liberty at stake, and our country under. What do bureaucrats know about medicine? Yet they would be the ones who would be dispensing it. Google Obamacare. It is 1100 pages long. All of it isn’t about health care. Google it and see what it says. Permission for health care would come from Washington D.C. Doctor’s rights with their patients would be hampered. People would die because their cases would be caught up in red tape of D.C. Or they would be denied altogether. Some politician knows nothing of medicine. Doctors do. Keep the healthcare in the doctors’ hands.

    It would seem in this age of change that the Mayans were right. We are going to make a change. How it will be done depends on how violent the liberal progressive socialists choose to adjust to the new rules of this game. Unions are an anachronism, a boil on the face of America distorting the integrity of freedom and creative work. It may well be the end of a grand era of industrial development even now moving westward toward Chinese evolution. Following such peaks it seems socialism tries to play oneupmanship and steal the wealth of the nations before they become has beens.
    Then there is intellectual integrity being destroyed by overzealous religionists trying to take over with their brand of mind control that regresses to desert living off the land and the destruction of freedoms and responsibility who want to kill all who do not bend to their god and destroy what creative juices a nation may possess. We see this bloody attempt to take over the world among the Islamic nations who kill their competition instead of learning what the real god is. This is bullheaded socialism of narrow religious thinking.
    Then there are the global warming tribes who demonstrate the irrational education of the masses who like half truths and edited facts. Even so, our great weather folks do not know or will not acknowledge what causes great droughts, great floods, global warming or cooling and the forces that make life on this little ball of dirt pleasant and fulfilling, perhaps even how the SunGod giveth and taketh and is not mentioned in educational books or lectures by scientists. Even Einstein’s great thoughts are being called false and being downgraded. I could go on and on with areas that are supporting regressive laws and civilian societies, but to little avail. The masses will have to kill until they tire of it and go to the mountains to think about what life is all about since killing did not relieve the pressure of competing or thinking. Religion must be overhauled along with education and environmentalism, politics, money and banking, etc. Let us hope we can cope with change. a


    Congress has done nothing to find the facts and truth about Obama. WE THE PEOPLE must demand that Congress do what the Democrat Party failed to do.

    If Obama is allowed to continue to destroy this nation it will be the fault of WE THE PEOPLE. I hope this message will start a grassroots movement to force out the truth about Obama. We need to demand documentation for his kindergarten records, Punahou school records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, passport, medical records, his files from his years as an Illinois state senator, his Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records, and his adoption records. Some of these records will likely expose the fact that he is a Muslim and was born in Kenya. His own grandmother said she was witness to his birth in Mombasa, Kenya. Obama spent almost 2 million dollars to bury the facts in secrecy. Demand from Congress that we find out what he was hiding!

    Every Republican and all Democrats who are real Americans and wish to remain a voice in the political life of this country must demand that the above questions be answered, finally! Once we have in hand the proof that he is an interloper, an imposter and an inveterate liar, we will have in hand the proof that Obama is not eligible. It is then up to the states to issue a recall and nullify not only his candidacy but all the communist cronies he turned into czars, Supreme court justice Elena Kagan, Eric Holder who has turned out to be a liar and anti-white black bigot like his master Obama, but also throw out every law or statute passed under his rule. By thus filing criminal charges of fraud and numerous failures to uphold our Constitution, we would undo much of the harm done by Obama. This is better than impeachment since that would leave his time bombs of destruction in place – ObamaCare would be a matter for the history books. A successful criminal case against Obama would wipe the slate clean and we would get our country back.

    Once we hold thorough investigations of how the Democrats forced ObamaCare upon the American people against our will, The Community Reinvestment Act which forced banks into granting mortgages to people who were likely unable to meet monthly payments (this is exactly what is behind our financial collapse), the irresponsible actions of Fanny Mai and Freddy Mac, the Fast and Furious fiasco, the Green Energy mess, the Solyndra affair, the stealing from GM to redistribute their wealth to Obama’s union supporters, the extortion of twenty billion dollars from BP even after they had agreed to make good all losses (and was that just a slush fund for Obama?), we will find that the Obama regime is an “Organized Crime Ring.” Why has Congress allowed Obama to spend more than all presidents since George Washington? They have been remiss of their duties yet they continue to collect their salaries and vote in raises for themselves. The MILLION MAN MARCH that I propose must make it clear to the puppets in Washington that any one of them, regardless of party, that fails to get to the truth and take immediate action will never hold office again or will face recall.


    • Janis Keller says:

      The democrats knew who Obama was. Is. Google Saul Alinsky. Then Google Rules for Radicals. If you choose the right one, you will find that Hillary Clinton made her college thesis on this book or this man, Obama taught Rules for Radicals in whatever college he went to, and I think Biden studied this also. Go to Amazon and open a book of Rules for Radicals, and you’ll see a picture of Obama teaching Rules for Radicals. Notice a thank you to Lucifer on the front page. Read about how they mix in with everyone, go to church with everyone, etc. It is scary, but it can be overcome. I think America is tired of being polite now.

  7. Marianne says:

    How come nobody is mentioning that we have to get back to our roots? The roots that the Constitution was founded on? Our God given heritage. We need to repeal abortion, and come out of Sodom and Gomorrah and repeal same sex marriage. My God!! Is everyone afraid of the homosexuals too!! No body is mentioning that mess. Here’s the future if we don’t clean up America . . . “And I heard another voice from heaven saying, ‘Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you RECEIVE OF HER PLAGUES. For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities’” (Revelation 18:4,5). Anyone have hears to hear!
