Protesting In 2016

I was watching various news channels today, and I have come to the conclusion about the people who are protesting, whether it is about Trump, or some other “issue” that they do not agree with today.

So here is what I have noticed. Many of the signs being carried seem to be made professionally, you know like at a printers shop. The protest seem to be during the work week. Do not these people have jobs or are they professional students? Perhaps their job is to be a professional protestor? Why do they feel the need to chant slogans from 50 years ago? For example “What do we want?”. “When do we want it”, “Hey, Hey Ho, Ho (fill in the name or issue you are protesting) has to go.” or this one ,” the people united, will never be divided.”

I have also seen a correlation of news/media cameras to protestors in that when the cameras are on they vocal, when the cameras go away, so do the protestors. Forcing me to ask, why do you need media cameras to make your point? Is this just a way to get attention upon yourself? Do you really need the media cameras to get your point across? Is your “issue” so weak you need to pander to the media and their cameras?

Why do the protesters feel the need to destroy property both public and private? Why do they need to commit battery upon people with whom they disagree or who do not agree with them? I see their behavior and I think that it turns off many people who might agree with them, but because of the way the protesters act, it pushes potential supporters away.

So I see these people acting like they have not one iota of common sense, not one original idea, and I wonder if their parents or grandparents are old dirty hippies from the 60’s who taught them to act in this way. Something that does bother me, is the willingness they have to deprive people of their right of free speech, their right to peacefully assemble, and deny people their right to their own political views free from threat of violence.Occupy Oakland Riot/Protestors

My impression is that many of these protestors are college students, you know supposedly educated people. Yet where did they get the idea that this is the way to protest? Destroying property, hitting people, setting fires. Since when does this become acceptable? Those 3 things are criminal acts. Yet it seems that politicians who have not the guts, backbone, or intelligence, are unable to bring themselves to order their police departments to do their job, and clear the streets for fear that they might look like they support law and order. By the way there was a mayor of Chicago back in 1968 who decided that he knew how to deal with the protestors, and he did. For along time after that (which the MSM and Academia referred to it as “A Police Riot”) there were some protest but it was orderly. People got their issue across. No big deal, they had their say, their way. Not so with the protestors of today. Now it is their way, you have no say.

Speaking of politicians, I have noticed that a larger degree, these protests are usually in Democratic controlled cities and towns. Most of these protestors identify themselves as Democrats or align with the Democrat party. When it is all over who suffers? The citizens of that city or town who did not join in the protest, and for the most part did not want the protestors in their neighborhood acting the fools.

What it comes down to is this, I am tired of the Protestors. Go home ,I, and many other people I know, don’t even care what it is you are protesting any more. Come to my neighborhood and act the fool, and there won’t be people standing by while you act the fool. They will come out and tell you exactly what they think about your protest, and then some.

Random Thoughts on Things I Hear, See, and Conclude

With all that is going on around our world, country, and me, there are things I see hear, see and conclude about those things and tidbits.  So I thought I would share them with the world.  So here they are, and they are not in order.

Saw World War Z today, I liked it, also liked the book.

Heard that the State of Ill-Annoy (Illinois) legislature is complaining because they are not getting the revenue they thought they would get when they hiked the Sin Tax on the smokes.  Well what in the Hell did they think would happen when they raised the prices?  A good portion of the state’s population live within an hours drive of a neighboring state.  For me, I live within 20 minutes of the Wisconsin State Line.  They pass the goofy smoking restrictions for when the citizens are in public.  So when we decide to either quit smoking, or purchase our items in another state, Ill-Annoy gets nothing.  Typical State government plan-it never works as it should.

Meanwhile these same buffoons pass a “concealed carry weapons” law, which is an absolute disaster.  Not the court ruling, you see, just the way the State of Illinois legislature attempts to bypass the Federal ruling.  And they wonder why Ill-Annoy is the laughing stock of our Nation when it comes to state legislatures.  Most of the state legislators are charlatans, buffoons, and mostly inept at trying to govern.  Speaking of govern, Gov Pat Quinn is more than likely the dumbest man in politics.  He has no idea what he wants to do, much less how to do it.

There are so many scandals coming out of Washington, D.C. I can’t even remember them all, much less keep up with the status of them.  Couple of things are for sure.  One the GOP needs to be forming Select Committees on each and every scandal, and if necessary, appoint a Special Prosecutor.  Why is Speaker Boehner hesitant to do this?  Simple, those in power are actually feeling threatened by all the scandals.  Dems have no interest in getting to the bottom of any of this, unless of course they can blame Bush 43.  The GOP is too afraid to act should they be perceived in a negative light, what they don’t understand the MSM will NEVER give them a break and see their duty through, by being the watchdog of our Democracy.

Speaking of the MSM (main stream media) would you ever think that Entertainment Journalism would 1) be big business, and 2) the American public knows more about Kim and Kanye’s child than they do about the scandals in Washington, D.C. nor do they care, and they do not demand action from their elected representatives much less holding anyone accountable.

Why is this country backing anyone in the Syrian Civil War?  Let the terrorist and Jihadist kill each other.  This is a win-win for our country and the Western world.

Why do we continue to give aid (translated as our tax dollars) to countries who hate us and thwart our every effort at the U.N.?  Why are we still a part of the U.N.?

Why does the media continue to prosecute Christianity, yet will not say a word against Islam?  Could it be they are cowards?

Why don’t the American people realize that this economic plan laid out by the Federal Reserve is doomed to failure?

When will the U.S. come right out and tell China that they are NOT our friend?

Why is it, that if anyone criticize the President for his politics, and his agenda they are branded as “racist” or “haters” or some other derogatory remark.  What happened to our political freedom to disagree with our leaders?

This past weekend, there have been 64 people shot in the city of Chicago, the city with the toughest gun control laws.  When do the politicians and libs realize that gun control does not work?

When is Climate Change going to be called what it is-a scam?

Why does the media and the Federal government pander to gay community?  The Gay community only makes up about 3% of our population.  So why does the MSM try to portray this segment of our society as being a lot larger than what it really is?

Well that’s is it from me for now, feel free to add your own to this list in the comments section.-conelrad
