Day405 Saturday 10/08/11

Is this what you want America to look like in 2012?
ran 3.1 miles
Remember Wisconsin? It was back in February. Unions organized protestors to wreak havoc on the capitol in opposition to state legislation that cut back their ability to collectively bargain and forced them to start paying more into their pensions, or 401k plans, like the rest of us. That was eight months ago and what have you heard about it lately?

You haven’t heard anything because the protest failed. Protestors trashed their capitol building and forced even more tax dollars into unnecessary expenditure.

The protests going on currently are much of the same. The only thing these people are achieving is to waste more of their own time than they already have by not moving forward in their own lives and to waste more tax dollars to clean up all of their misguided frustration. They are exacting nothing more than wasted time and maybe a picture from the media to remind them for the rest of their lives how they had one single moment fighting everything that keeps this nation moving forward. That’s something to be proud of.

And our president is all for this. He’ll take anything he can get right now because he has no leg to stand on for a 2012 campaign---except for promises to give free money to people who have no desire to sweat or earn the things they own. This practice panned out pretty well for Europe. Cuba is a nice spot to live. And if you really want to feel the adrenalin that the simple freedom to protest can amplify, go to China and stand on a street with a soapbox and a sign. See how that works out for you.

871.9 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day40.
