When liberals attack...

The latest news about attacks on Republican headquarters is this claim of attacks on the Wisconsion Repubs. This happened at the same time as the Florida riots and the shooting at the Tennessee campaign shootings.

I think the Wisconsin thing may be blown out of proportion a bit, but the Florida thing seems pretty serious.

I'm not going to say that all liberals are raving nuts, at least when they aren't talking about Halliburton. But there seem to be some nutty elements in the Democratic ranks.. If the Dems expect to be taken seriously, they need to speak out and control these elements. The left has a habit of forgetting that the people that they need to vote for them are swing voters - people who are seriously thinking of voting for Bush - and when they see a mob running through Bush headquarters, it's probably not going to make them side with the mob. Which is great for Republicans like myself.

One common thread with the Orlando and Wisconsin attacks, and other ones like the one in Boston in March is that they were all union members. I've never been a big fan of unions, who are nothing but rent-seekers who go as far as possible to take money from others and give it to themselves.

There is a quote in the Orlando article that We want to send a clear message to Bush, we want him to take his hands off our overtime pay. How touching. Too bad that it's not true. The Bush changes in overtime benefit low wage workers - the people that lose government mandated overtime pay are white collar workers like computer programers - which I doubt that the Orlando rioters were.
