    • Army of God cheers Planned Parenthood killer
      The anti-abortion group “Army of God” believes Planned Parenthood got what it deserved. Nevermind that innocent people were killed. Virginia-based anti-abortion activist Donald Spitz, who runs the “Army of God” website, similarly stated after Dr. George Tiller was murdered that the he “reaped what he sowed” and hosts a page celebrating those who have been [… […]

    • The Silver Lining of Thanksgiving Past
      I had originally intended to write a rather cynical Thanksgiving weekend post – pointing out that the Indian tribes who helped the pilgrims in that first Thanksgiving feast made a big mistake by helping Europeans figure out how to live and prosper in the new world. Their reward, ultimately, was slavery, scalp bounties, smallpox (sometimes […]

Occupy Baltimore Mic Checks Karl Rove

And THEN, Karl gets all flustered and asks American citizens:

“Who gave you the right to Occupy America?  Nobody!”

Are you f^&*ing kidding me, Karl?  Are you serious?

Poor Karl and his friends can’t screen us out anymore.  You can’t scan the bumper stickers of the cars riding into the parking lot because we don’t need them.  You can’t confiscate the signs because we don’t use them.  You can’t screen us out by the way we dress, we’ll look indistinguishable from your donors.  In fact, even if you could screen us out, you can’t screen out the audio engineers or the servers circulating with appetizers.  You can’t get away from us, Karl.  We have the right to occupy America because we ARE America.

And when we’re done speaking, we’ll give you a chance at the Q&A session immediately following.

As Occupy Wall Street wrote yesterday on their homepage:

You can not evict an idea whose time has come.

  1. Mic Checks….are fu*king brilliant! Can you just imagine how/where and against whom it can be used……..

    (Yes, no one will be immune!)

  2. This is what and should be done across the United States. Shut this fool down because he is truly the 1% who only speaks to destroy ..never to build up. His ads are disgusting and out and out lies.

  3. Karl Rove should go to hell, now!

    Best advice I’ve seen yet, if Obama wants to remain president after 2012.

    Remember the CWA, A Government Jobs Program That Worked: Echoes

    On Nov. 9, 1933, Roosevelt announced the creation of a new government agency, the Civil Works Administration, with an eye toward using government employment to jump-start job creation. The CWA’s story resonates with our present moment, not least as an obvious example of government’s ability to swiftly provide, as FDR put it, “a smashing answer for those cynical men who say that a democracy cannot be honest and efficient.” The details of how Roosevelt and his administration made the CWA a success that winter — and of how the CWA was ultimately killed off — can help us grasp some of the political risks and possible benefits for politicians, like President Barack Obama, looking to use governmental authority to create jobs today.

  4. Hey Karl . . .

    Who gave you the right to RepublicaNazify America? Nobody!

  5. God, it was amazing how peevish and impotent he was. It was a real emperor’s-new-clothes moment.

  6. But, you know what? It would be even more effective to start mic checking Democrats…starting with Obama.
