“Audacity of Hypocrisy”

28 Jun

Proud PUMA members – GaryChapelHill and MAWM- both frequent bloggers at Riverdaughter’s blog The Confluence, sounded the PUMA roar in Unity yesterday.

They’ve posted pics at The Confluence, along with this video. Head over to Riverdaughter to read their first hand account of Obama ‘thug’ tactics and the awesomeness of the Sullivan Co. Sherrif’s Dept.

Many, many thanks to them and to all the PUMAs who bravely travelled to make their voices heard. You may have been few, but you spoke for MANY.

Thank you for holding your nose to represent many of the 18 million who couldn’t make it to the Unity Show.  We love you guys!

    OMG, they turned up the volume when HE spoke!? He’s so arrogant! It’s these little tricks that make us loathe him and the unity pony he rode in on.

    I wish I could have been there too. I saw one of the guys from Riverdaughter interviewed on Fox news yesterday. I was so thrilled to see PUMA people on TV. He did a great job too.

    You may have missed this as it was in the comment thread at Riverdaughters. It’s a quote from GaryChapelHill:
    We weren’t the only group that was there…there was anti-war protesters, other groups of hillary supporters—and then there were the townspeople. they were not obama fans. The obama camp wanted to move us to “free speech zones” a la bush 2004 (I have video of that), but the cops wouldn’t enforce it. The cops were really working against the obama camps wishes when it came to us…..really cool. more to come….

    I didn’t realize there were other protesters too. I didn’t see that on the news. These news people are doing an awful job. No wonder Obama is ahead in polls. The media is promoting him by NOT showing the many groups against him. It’s so frustrating. Thank God for PUMA people.

    Oh, I am so irked by the media, I forgot to post my other annoyance- the free speech zones!!

    All of America is a Free Speech Zone!

    As for the Obama campaign pulling the same stuff as Bush in 2004? Well, so much for Obama’s “new style politics”- **eye roll**

    Those cops sound wonderful. NH must really believe in all that ‘live free’ message I see on their license plates. LOL.

    An Action Item we can make happen if we work together:

    However we each decide to vote in November, this summer many Hillary supporters want to show their continued support for Hillary and their anger at the DNC and many Democratic leaders for pushing Hillary out of the race.

    Many Hillary supporters have already made the symbolic gesture to switch their registration from Democrat to independent. (That won’t necessarily influence how they vote). In honor of Independence Day (July 4) we are encouraging other Hillary supporters to do the same — as an organized effort that reflects and respects the differences among us.

    To be effective, we need to tell the Democratic Party and the media that we are doing this. BUT, we don’t want to lose our opportunity to vote in Democratic primaries for Congress that will be held between NOW and November. Those states include:
    Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, DC, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Kansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, NY, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

    For example, many Massachusetts voters are very unhappy with Sen John Kerry’s strong, early support for Barack Obama, especially since the state of Massachusetts was solidly for Hillary. As a result, Sen. Kerry is facing his first primary opposition in more than 2 decades: Ed O’Reilly, a very liberal Democratic who (ironically) is criticizing Kerry in some of the same ways that Obama criticized Clinton — such as voting to allow Bush to deterimine if the US should go to war in Iraq. It appears that the combination of anger about his support for Obama, and anger from Obama supporters who see Kerry as not liberal enough, has resulted in a challenge. Some Hillary supporters will want to send a message to Kerry by voting for O’Reilly. We hope that Hillary suppporters will also ask O’Reilly about his views on election fraud during the presidential caucuses, etc. Meanwhile, for more info see http://www.edoreilly.com/

    THEREFORE: I propose that each of us write to Democratic Party leaders before July 4 to say some version of the following:

    1. I am an enthusiastic supporter of Hillary Clinton for president and am very disappointed in the undemocratic decisions of the DNC and Party leadership that undermined her campaign.
    a. The DNC took four Michigan delegates that Hillary had won and gave them to Obama
    b. The DNC punished two states that Hillary had won big, Florida and Michigan, by cutting their delegates in half, but did not punish two states that Obama had won which also held their primaries earlier than the DNC rules allowed.
    c. Despite the extremely close race, the Democratic leadership kept telling the media and Hillary herself that she should get out of the race. Their behavior was insulting and unfair.

    2. That is why I am changing (or have just changed) my registration from Democrat to Independent (OPTIONAL: you may want to add: but only after the Democratic Congressional primary is held in my state)
    3. OPTIONAL: Some of you may want to say: I will not give money to the Democratic Party until I see an acknowledgement of the need for real change, such as eliminating undemocratic processes, such as caucuses. The caucuses are much less democratic than primaries, and in 2008 there was a great deal of election fraud, with many caucus participants not living in the precincts or even the state where they caucused.
    4. OPTIONAL: Some of you may want to say: I will not support Barack Obama because he did not win the popular vote, and he was selected rather than farily elected. Those of you who plan to vote for Barack Obama can say so, or just not mention your voting plans.

    We ask that those of you living in states that do NOT have primaries coming up change your registration before July 4. Those living in states that have primaries should wait. I have attached a calendar of Congressional primaries.

    REMINDER: Your registration does not affect how you vote in November. It also does NOT influence how the media polls show Democrats are going to vote or have voted UNLESS you choose to tell pollsters how you are registered. That’s up to you.

    We had planned to ask you to write to the DNC, but the DNC has now been taken over by the Obama campaign. They have moved their operations to Chicago and the DNC web site is now all about Obama (see http://www.dnc.org/).

    So, instead, please contact YOUR U.S. Senators, your Congressional representative, AND the following Democratic leaders or DNC members. You can send to all of them at once if you’d like to, except Harry Reid needs to go through his web site:

    Al Gore: Kalee@carthagegroup.com;
    Nancy Pelosi: sfpelosi@yahoo.com; john.lawrence.mail.house.gov;
    Steny Hoyer: Ben.Abrams@mail.house.gov;
    Senate Democratic Committee: info@dscc.org; press@dscc.org;
    House Democratic Committee: info@dccc.org;
    DNC: ausman@embarqmail.com; james_roosevelt@tufts-health.com;
    mame@thereileygroup.com; gss1@aol.com

    Harry Reid: http://reid.senate.gov/contact/index.cfm

    To actually change your registration, google your state voter registration info. It’s easy!
    For example, for Maryland, http://www.elections.state.md.us/voter_registration/index.html
    DC: http://www.dcboee.org/voterreg/vic_index.shtm
    California: http://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/elections_vr.htm
    NY: http://www.elections.state.ny.us/
    NJ: http://www.stevens.edu/student_life/voter-reg-form.pdf

    Please let me know if you do this! Thanks!
