“Invest in America” speak-out at Lame-Bone’s Office Tomorrow

Instead of his lame-ass “town halls” like the Tea-Party ones he held for health care, remember those? The one at a Country Club on the far edge of town that started after the bus stopped running on a Friday evening, no more bus service till Monday morning? Working Class need not apply?
Then they filled the hall with a Republican Party strategy session before the “open to everyone” Town Hall? And the Republicans stayed for the “open” Town Hall, making sure nobody else could come in? Yeah… THAT old Pig tactic.
This Speak-out is outside his Luxury Office Suite, where anybody with a million-dollar annual income and a campaign contribution check has easy access. Again, Poor people, workers… need not apply.
Unless the Punk can prove that he actually does own one square inch more of the streets and sidewalks than any other citizen, there ain’t Jack they can do about it.
Bring stereo equipment, something with microphones and amps. Make sure every TeaBag sellout who works for him can hear what the REAL people have to say.
10:30 tomorrow morning, Thursday 24 Feb 2011, at Doug Lamborns congressional district office in Colorado Springs.
MoveOn.org is sponsoring, and this is an info blurb:

In dozens of state legislatures and in Congress, Republicans are proposing massive cuts to education, police, emergency responders, and vital human services—instead of asking big corporations and millionaires to pay their fair share. This is a moment for national action, so we’re holding Invest in America speak-outs tomorrow (Thursday) and will follow them up with rallies in all 50 state capitals on Saturday.

September, Fiscal Year, No Billion Dollars falling from the sky.

Budget time cometh. Three years ago, when Real Estate started to crap all over the economy, Rivera, our mayor for those who don’t speak Coloradospringsish… said that what the city needed was for a Billion Dollars to fall from the sky. That $42 Million he later turned down, because it was earmarked to stuff he didn’t think were priorities, like dinner parties for his Rich Sponsors to discuss how to redirect the rest of it to their bank accounts..
That would help a lot. But, it was “earmarked” so NO to the schools, the parks, the streetlights, the Cops and Fire and Ambulance, and especially NO to Bus Service. A bit of rumor hit my ears today.
Bus Service to be cut even further. Of course, any real announcement would be made after the election. When somebody else can take the heat, I suppose. The time frame spoken for the schedule, doesn’t even cover kids going home from school. Far less people who work a 9-to-5. So one more time the Working Class gets to bite the something or other in order for the Parasite Class to continue their Massive Theft Ventures.
I can almost understand Capitalists, Why SHOULD other people besides themselves get the goodies, and further, why should THEY, the ones who actually profit from Capital, Pay for the services only they get? It’s just not FAIR! Poor little Rich Bitches.
As for the ones who don’t profit from capital, as one third of Americans don’t, who work themselves further into debt because they’re not paid enough to cover the costs of producing their labor, we’re the ones who should pay the price for THEM to get services, and not them.

No, Citizen, it is our DUTY to support the Parasite class, for to claim a share of what we actually earn rather than feed it into the Greedy Maws of Capitalist Hogs and their sows and piglets… that would be SOCIALISM! and we all know that Socialism is purest evil. We know this because the Capitalists, who like the rest of us have never actually had or experienced a Socialist Economy on any more than a local level, pay spokes-freaks to tell us so.

There’s probably to be another rally downtown. Of course we know now, as we knew then, that the Arrogant Ones at City Hall won’t budget funds for anything but what makes their Rich Bitch buddies (and owners) richer.

One feels like Oliver Twist at the orphanage asking the docent for more gruel.
