At what point does this “new tone” start? For the left, never — for the rest of us it was supposed to start weeks ago.

Here’s the latest example of a liberal’s idea of toned-down rhetoric:

Rep. Michael Capuano (D-Mass.) fired up a group of union members in Boston with a speech urging them to work down in the trenches to fend off limits to workers’ rights like those proposed in Wisconsin.

“I’m proud to be here with people who understand that it’s more than just sending an email to get you going,” Capuano said, according to the Dorchester Reporter. “Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary.”

It sounds like somebody needs an intervention at HW & Bubba’s National Institute for Civil Discourse.

Update: The civility just keeps on coming!

    "Capuano married Barbara Teebagy" ( from Wiki )

    Uh-huh… KNEW IT!

    JK, none of us chooses our parents, names or nationalities BUT… for the love of God Mike, please drop the tough guy-talk in the name of all those of Italian descent. ( Or are you auditioning for The Sopranos? )

    Career pol that NEVER had a private sector job telling those of us who survived the Obama-Battan Death March about "gettin' tough". Love it.

    Civilty for you, but not for us !
    Rules are for you, but not for us !
    Fair for us, but not for you !
    Dems falsely accuse us of doing precisely what they ARE doing !
    If a dem says he is NOT doing something, you can bet that he IS !
    Pretty much whatever a dem claims, the opposite is true !

    I think there`s a pattern forming here !

    Right, and as Doug has pointed out in the past, just about any time someone gets in your face declaring "That.Is.A.Fact" ( you can be pretty sure it 'isn't' )

    What concerns me more is, the appealing to the most crass, basest instincts. Taking complex issues like the viability of a Defined Benefit Plan and placing it on the level of "gonna' kick some @$$"?

    By that logic, a group of drunk, fist-waving hooligans would've cured Cancer long ago.

    Hey, I'm all for it! Set up a ring in the middle of the Capitol, and let them get their biggest union thug, and we'll put in our best man, and charge tickets.

    Here is a question to pose to the union thugs? How much of our blood do they want? Is there a cap on how much you can tax us and fee us to the point where we have expended every last drop of blood? Then who pays? When is enough – enough? My hubby and I are not rich – but we work hard, pay into our own retirement fund and pay for our own health insurance – then we are taxed on our income and our property to pay for public union employees wages and benefits. Now, I ask again – how much do they want us to pay? And when we have bled to death – will they want what we have left to our kids? And when they run out of live bodies – what next?

  7. SignPainterGuy on February 23rd, 2011 5:57 pm

    The answer is simple………How much is enough ? Just a little more !

    In the same vain as tomorrow never comes….because, as soon as tomorrow gets here, it`s today !

    They will never be satisfied until they have it all ! And THEN they still wont be satisfied !

  8. SignPainterGuy on February 23rd, 2011 6:00 pm

    Yeah, now that you mention it, why hasn`t cancer been frightened into submission ?!

  9. Marshall_Will on February 23rd, 2011 6:08 pm


    Good questions. The answer, there's never 'enough' ( only more ) Virtually ALL Dem/Leftist talking points emanate from one of two sources. There's a truly Evil website called "" and then there's

    They both spew the same social justice drivel, even in the face of what may become an uncontrolled downward economic spiral. The purveyor of this political FILTH infiltrated our humble ( and we haven't been able to get rid of her SINCE! )

    She's turned it into nothing more than her bully-pulpit. I've threatened to expose her ( just to save the Blog but she's like a rubber-neck accident and people turn up day after day to see what Looney Tunes will say 'next'?

    Derailing those demented talking points is what it REALLY is all about. Sick stuff that passes for 'logic', "Ideas and Action" type BS for the Left. Taxes could never be high enough to make this crowd happy.

    Sounds like life is just too much fun !!

  11. Nanny on February 23rd, 2011 9:17 pm

    I posted that same question on our liberal rag newspaper in the comments about the union protesters here at our state capitol. Still waiting for an answer from all those state moochers. Apparently they don't have an answer or it is exactly as everyone suspects – there will never be enough money for them to take from the producers in the private sector.

    Isn't it telling what the progressives have in store for us. You should see the replies I did get. F&$%k you! F*&^k you! F$#@k you X 30. And then this – which is telling – take your F&^%ing money and leave – there are plenty of suckers we can raise taxes on – especially those fat cat Wall Street bankers who screwed the "working man". Ummmm…… last time I looked Wall Street was located in the belly of the beast – New York and Washington DC, not in Michigan and they all are Democrats and Liberals. Stupid, Stupid Stupid People. So they are now egging on private business to leave the state. Looks like they are hoping the whole state looks like Detroit – where the major employer is the City of Detroit and the only source of income is the State of Michigan Aid to Cities and the Feds who infuse $$$ via "Social Justice" or as the residents refer to it as "Obama's Money Stash".

  13. Nanny on February 24th, 2011 12:36 am

    Yeah they actually think Obama has a personal stash of money to provide for their cribs.

  14. Doug on February 24th, 2011 12:49 am

    Nanny, by "Obama's personal stash" of cash you've got to be referring to these winners:

  15. SignPainterGuy on February 24th, 2011 4:27 pm

    Right Doug, those fine upstanding folks with such high aspirations will go far in the world !! cough, cough…….cough.
