Prosecutors have charged 22-year-old Casey Brezik with felony assault. They say he stabbed a community college dean in the throat. Brezik is accused of attacking Albert Dimmitt, Dean of Instruction at Penn Valley Community College. Dimmitt is in stable condition after surgery. Witnesses say Brezik was mumbling to himself when he walked into the room where Missouri Governor Jay Nixon was expected to speak this morning (9-14).
Breznik is a Che fan and describes himself as an anarchist. He quotes all kinds of mad crazy on his Facebook wall.
This, the Muslim woman who shot folks at the cookie plant, the Discovery building eco-terrorist, yet the left continues to assert, as a caller did on the show today, that the right is always to blame (just as the alt-weekly did with the Carnahan fire-bombing story). Can we get some folks on the left to calm down their rhetoric and CHILL OUT?
There seem to be an exponentially greater number of people who like to compare Bush/Palin/insert-conservative-here to Hitler as opposed to someone comparing Obama to Hitler by way of socialist policy.
I’ve never witnessed non-classical liberals/progressives/socialists police their own in any similar fashion with regards to this particular topic. When in DC covering 8/28 I saw signs comparing Glenn Beck to Hitler. Where is the <fingers>tracker</fingers> website for that?
It’s interesting how the left creates standards and practices for everyone but them to follow. The irony is that their opposition already has standards which they apply themselves and yet this one group that seeks to act like the moral police to the world cannot be called upon to remedy the above behavior in their own party.
A handful of House Democrats are making health care reform an election year issue — by running against it.
At least five of the 34 House Democrats who voted against their party’s health care reform bill are highlighting their “no” votes in ads back home. By contrast, party officials in Washington can’t identify a single House member who’s running an ad boasting of a “yes” vote — despite the fact that 219 House Democrats voted in favor of final passage in March.
Well duh. Here’s a year’s worth of collected reading and reasons why:
Think of it as a presidential Labor Day gift. The AP:
Researchers say workers are paying a larger portion of health insurance costs as businesses, trying to ride out the economic downturn, shift more of the burden to their employees.
Total premiums rose a modest 3 percent for family coverage and 5 percent for single employees. But Kaiser Family Foundation CEO Drew Altman said companies passed most of those increases on to workers instead of absorbing them as they usually do.
As if you need any more proof that union bosses exploit middle class workers and cop-opt their organizations to be nothing more than accessories to a political party, behold:
Union leaders will unleash a concerted attack against Republican candidates and their “right-wing agenda” beginning this Labor Day weekend as they rally to stem expected Democratic losses in November’s midterm elections.
Mr. Trumka said the federation will play roles in more than 400 races nationwide, promoting its election agenda with a “massive mobilization” in 26 states. It will focus on 70 House races as well as Senate, gubernatorial and state legislative contests.
