Democrats File Bill to Gut Iowa's Right to Work Law

Article from the Wall Street Journal Forum by Eddie Sessions:

Circulating the Internet, an article from the Wall Street Journal Forum, 1/28/10, by poster 'Eddie Sessions':

“I have this theory about Barack Obama. I think he’s led a kind of make-believe life in which money was provided and doors were opened because at some point early on somebody or some group took a look at this tall, good looking, half-white, half-black, young man with an exotic African/Muslim name and concluded he could be guided toward a life in politics where his facile speaking skills could even put him in the White House.

Racist bulls--t...

You can say that again.

Dear Mr. Sessions:

I don't read the Wall Street Journal, and I would like to thank you for reminding me why! I didn't even read your editorial until a soon to be ex-firend sent it to me. Unfortunately, he believes your rants. But then again, he thinks Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly and Glen Beck are geniouses. I guess I will need to choose my friends more carefully in the future.

How sad it must be that you (Eddie) have the bully-pulpit from which to scream your racist, anti-American crap. You could be using it for the better of society; however, you choose to use it for your own, narrow-minded, self-importance. You claim you love America, but you truly hate Americans! You make a big deal out of the racial heritage of President Obama, but you forget that whites are rapidly becoming the minority in this country. Too bad, so sad! Get a life!

You claim that there is some sort of underlying conspiracy that put Barack Obama in the white house, but you forget that he was elected by more than 70% of the populace - including whites!

You make a big deal out of President Obama's former aquaintance (Bill Ayers) but you make no mention of George Bush's aquaintance with a war monger, liar, dictator SOB - Dick Cheney. This is the team that took a $200 Billion surplus in 2000 and turned it into a $1 Trillion deficit by conducting one illegal war and allowing their big oil and banker friends to rape the nation and the government.

Chances are, you are afraid of Barack Obama because he is a helluva lot smarter than you and your re-neck, conservative idots who only care about lining your own pockets with the money from the poorer Americans who sweat it out in the factories that you and your friends are shutting down.

You make a big deal about Pres. Obama's age, but you forget that John Kennedy was younger when he took office.

You make a big fuss over Pres. Obama's charisma and charm, but you forget that using charm is how to get elected - just ask George Bush and Bill Clinton - neither candidate had any experience; however, at least Clinton was smart!

You point out that the Repbulicans picked two completely inept candidates and then get pissed that the Democrats picked on them. Let me call the waaaaaaaaaamublance for the crying babies!

You say he has the talent for saying the wrong thing at the wrong time - sorry, I thought Bush had the corner on that market and most real journalists (of which you are obviously NOT), know Bush couldn't put a complete sentence together with two hands and a flashlight!

You talk about Pres. Obama and him wanting to "wish away" the "terrible realities". The reality is that Republicans were fine spending trillions on an illegal war, but they don't want this "black guy" to be successful so we will fight everything he does. Even though the republicans drove this country to the brink of the next great depression, they are bitching because democrats are trying to spend more money on the country itself - NOT illegal wars, banking buddies, or oil companies (or insurance companies for that matter)!

You gripe about the Attorney General wanting to try a terrorist suspect in a court of law. Gee, that's what we have done throughout history - check your facts for a once you moron - including Timothy McVee and the original twin towers bombers from the early 90's. However, because Barack Obama is following the legal precedence set long before he took office, you now, all of a sudden, have a problem with it. You are a hypocrit!!!

And the last time I checked, it takes an act of congress to declare war. The "war on terrorism" is a war against ideals, not a country. Therefore, holding "terrorism suspects" indefinitely at Git-mo would be, oh, I don't know, AGAINST THE GENEVA CONVENTION!!!

I find it pathetic that you are even touching on the age-old Republican claim that Pres. Obama is not a US citizen. You haven't been able to prove it. Any good P.I. probably could if you weren't so cheap that you haven't hired one yet. You need to get over it just as much as the Dems need to get over the fact that GW Bush stole the 2000 election. Even if you know its true, oh well, get over it. You are pathetic!

The underlying truth is that conservatives are not interested in helping the country, they just want to win. They would rather see Barack Obama go down in flames than help him to succeed. They can't "help or cooperate" with a Democratic President because that would mean we have no chance at the White House for another 8 years. And Republicans are certainly making it clear that they don't want a - how did you say it - "tall, good looking, half-white, half-black, young man with an exotic African/Muslim name" to succeed.

In November of 2008 the entire country told the Republican/conservative movement that we were tired of the age-old white dominated old-boys club where the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Take the dollar bills out of your ears and listen to what the country is telling you. We told you that we wanted a government option healthcare plan, but you haven't listened.

We told you that billions of dollars in bonuses to a select few bankers was unacceptable, especially during the epic losses they incurred - but you haven't listened. The entire country said don't go to war in Iraq - but you didn't listen.

You play on the fears of the everyday American and guilt him/her into believing you are correct and the rest of the educated masses are wrong. You disgust me!

Colin Findley you are so ill-informed it's simply laughable. So typical of people who drink the Kool-Aid from the big liberal jug of lies and mistruths, all stirred up by folks like ACORN.

All of you liberals need a lesson is simple economics, ESPECIALLY Obama himself, if he can quit looking in the mirror long enough. YOU CANNOT SPEND YOUR WAY INTO PROSPERITY, that has been proven time and time again. Check history.

The entire country DID NOT SAY "don't go to war in Iraq".... you just don't remember! Bush was pressured into that war from exactly the same people in Washington who two years later said they did no such thing (more lies) and then kept blaming Bush for that war for the next 6 years and even now. Ignoramuses.

The 200 Billion surplus in 2000 was ONLY BECAUSE the brilliant and lying Clinton administration STOLE it from the U.S. citizens by moving funds from Social Security to "balance" the budget. HA! There you go drinking that Kool-Aid again. Hey it's YOUR social security $$ too! Or maybe you don't contribute? (like so many liberals!!)

Obama is the epitomy of a fascist, or worse. I will do everything I can in my little corner of this country to see that he and his cronies in congress are never re-elected and then we can go about getting this country back on the right track and back to greatness. NO MORE APOLOGETICS TOURS AROUND THE WORLD.

Amen brother. Let me guess Mr. Findley...You have never held down a job in your life,have never worked in the private sector, or you have inherited millions. Most liberals I have met have either inherited loads of money, or they can't hold down a job. President O'bama has been President for a year. When is he going to stop whining and blaming everything on Bush? He truly is a "man child". Children tend to blame others. Any human being with the understanding of 1st grade math understands that you cannot spend your way out of a recession. O'bama is trying to bring down our country economically and he seems to be succeeding! Mr. Findley, perhaps you should travel throughout the United States to understand what it is most Americans are thinking, instead of staying in your own little corner. Furthermore, you also need to travel to other parts of the world. Those of us who have, realize that the United States is truly the best place on earth to live. We Americans do not need to apologize, and neither does our President.

Mr. Findley, respectfully, please take a breath and think about what you are saying. I'm 63 years old and have been a Dem my entire life. Regardless of party affiliation, what this congress and this president are doing is just wrong. If you would look at reality instead of allowing your hatred for Bush and/or the GOP clog your mind, you would see it too. It obviously bothers you that not one republican congressman voted "for" the health bill. Doesn't it bother you that not one democratic congressman voted "against" it? It does me! Do you really think there is a difference in the parties? Take a good hard look...they vote the party line because that is how they get re-elected. If they voted otherwise, the party machine would not support them for re-election. Do you really believe this congress is representative of the people and are concerned about what you and I believe? There are a lot of people out there (dem's, rep's, and inde;'s, alike) that do not want this health insurance bill and do not believe in a lot of other things this congress is trying to shove down our throats. You should funnel your outrage at the spending that is going on...the spending that is going to ruin your, my, and our children's country. We are spending over $500M a DAY in INTEREST! If you (or I) handled our credit cards that way, how long would it be before you lost everything...your house, your car, everything??? By supporting this congress, that is exactly where we are going. There is no incentive for these people to stop spending. Your (and my) back pocket is their bank! We, the people, need to quit arguing over whose party is the best. This is not high school and we aren't supporting our high school football team...we are fighting for our lives. We, the people, need to send a message to government that they work for us...the best way to do that is to vote every damn one of them out of office (rep and dem), and continue doing that until they get the message!!!

Why is it that because he criticizes Obama he's called a racist?
Sessions never once mentioned that any of Obama's failings were related to color?
But since that's the only defense these people have it's the default position, and has been since the beginning.
But of course the blacks who voted for Obama because of his color - even though they had no idea what he was saying - were not racially motivated....
How naive can you get?
Let's be honest - Obama talked well but is now out of his depth.
Oh an by the way, you might like to tell him that there are 50 states, not 58, and that there is no Austrian language. He makes himself sound dumber than Bush!

Mr. Findley needs to shut the fu*k up and know his fact before he opens his ill-informed pie hole again. This President is a phony that is digging our country into a hole we may not be able to get out of. And another thing...the fact that Mr. Findley says he is going to disown his friend for sending him a email about something he believes in is a complete jerk anyways...who needs this guy as friend? What a DOPE! BTW...I am a Dem and this President is the worst mistake my party has EVER made. This Mr. Findley is probably living off the Government as well or cannot hold a JOB. His rants either are for the black man only, more hand outs or both. It's not about RACE you MORON. It's about our country...Anyone that says it's about race is clearly stupid and have no other excuses. Get a life and wake up! You are contributing to the destruction of our country.

Fact is fact and history is history. No matter who is the President of this nation, right is still right and wrong is still wrong. The current President; is it right or wrong to spend more than you have...can you as a private citizen? Is it right or wrong to say you will do one thing not do the other and then turn around and do exactly what you said you would not do...what is that called, a lie? As a leader, is it right or is it wrong to compromise the safety of your people and your country to gain influence and/or promote an idea? Would you even consider sacrificing the well being of your spouse and childeren in your own home to negotiate the possibility of a discussion to convince the drug traffickers and gang members out of your neighborhood? All of these things are obsurd and obviously wrong. Well, has our current President been involved in any of these things, on a national level? The answer unfortunately is yes. he is not the first, but he is our CURRENT President. This is why we as Americans must stand up and send the resounding message to all career politicians as remind them, they work for us. We are supposed to have a government by the people and for the people. Where...WHEN did this IDEAL fall flat?

Career politicians need to go and term limits need to be put in place for every elected official. The tax laws need to be completely repealed and rewritten (flat tax for all to pay, evenly across the board- no more tax shelters and loop holes). ALL government based programs need true reform; no more entitlement programs; those who need help should get help and those who want help should EARN what they get. ACCOUNTABILITY for all is the key to it all.
