Here’s the short version: It was rumored that a woman taking part in the “Occupy St. Louis” camp was sexually assaulted.

A St. Louis Police Sergeant later confirmed the assault, and stated that the media isn’t reporting the dangers that really exist at the OWS protests.

The Chief of Staff of the St. Louis Mayor responded to confirmation of the assault by… calling the officer a Tea Party extremist.

There goes a Chief of Staff who probably kicks his cat when the dog s*#ts on the carpet.

OWS Update: Where are the animal rights wacko protesters when you really need them?

    With that kind of forensic police work being performed at City Hall, I can't understand why St. Louis is one of the most violent cities in America. Let me guess, sanctuary city.

  2. clu seatoe on November 19th, 2011 2:28 pm

    To be clear, it was NOT the Mayor, it was the opinion of “someone from his office” who thinks that being a Tea Party member is more extreme (off the norm) and noteworthy than being a sexually perverted and predatory member of his city.

    Which one would he feel good about turning his daughter over too to carpool to soccer practice?

  3. Pasadena Phil on November 19th, 2011 3:35 pm

    It is more than reasonable to assume that the mayor's chief of staff is speaking for the mayor. It's a political appointment. No one cares about the chief of staff's personal opinion.

    its not a hill to die on.

  5. Pasadena Phil on November 19th, 2011 4:23 pm

    Are you saying that this was just an off-hand remark of no significance? That for the mayor's main assistant to be dismissing a police sergeant for reporting that the media is not reporting what is really going on at OWS with a personal, politically charged insult has nothing to do with the mayor?

    It speaks volumes about what is wrong with St Louis that City Hall considers aligning a police sergeant with patriotic law and order Tea Partiers to be an insult to that sergeant .

    This was an incident that should be put directly to the mayor for clarification. Mr. Mayor, was your chief of staff out of line or not? If so, what are you going to do about it? Who's in charge here?

    It is the chief of staff's primary job to QUIETLY protect the mayor in the background by managing his staff, schedule and image. It is NEVER proper for him to create news by expressing his personal opinion.

    Check it out: My OSJ at my old B/D ran ( as a Dim natch ) in St. Louie. 90+% of his staff lives on the Illinois side of the river, I'll take for fear of their lives! 90%, easy…

    They had a POLICY, written POLICY that females were to be -escorted- to their cars if working late! The guys complained b/c they're married guys and, well sometimes things just 'happen' in parking garages. Think legions of Gwen Stefani look-alikes. What could possibly go wrong?

    Anyway, my J.O-SJ didn't think SL was liberal 'enough' and built his 'platform' on more handouts to minorities! People don't realize, there is TONS of old money in SL and they're every BIT as flaky as east coast old money. Hence anyone not sharing their 'enlightened' views must be a TP extremist..!? Check out the history of the Busch family.

  7. Pasadena Phil on November 19th, 2011 6:03 pm

    This is true anywhere you find old money. It's the white guilt trust children feel and bend over backwards to rid themselves of by demonstrating to the "trodden classes" that they aren't like the less enlightened people of their race. Of course, they live in all-white neighborhoods, towns and cities (think Hyannis, MA) where they are "safe" from reality.

    I live in a fairly upscale (and very safe) neighborhood where we whites are in a slight minority. It's completely different from apartheid Boston where liberals would trash me as a racist without a second thought while everyone eases their consciences by inviting a token black couple to important events. Everyone has "a" black friend back there. Out here, it's more about class than race.

  8. SignPainterGuy on November 19th, 2011 6:04 pm

    Looks like the Chief of Staff has proven once again, the position requires a bit more than just a warm body. Perhaps this is just a resume enhancer for a new job in the DNC, Missouri or Illinois ?

  9. Pasadena Phil on November 19th, 2011 6:08 pm

    BTW, what does it take to get my "Intense Debate" score above 60 anyway? Like SignPainterGuy, I've been dropping a fin in the tip jar every day but I'm wallowing with Michael Vick while SPG is hangin' with Aaron Rogers and Tom Brady. What gives?

  10. SignPainterGuy on November 19th, 2011 6:23 pm

    We are indeed surrounded by the mysterious mysteries of life ! A fin hunh !? Are you sure you`re holding your mouth right ?

  11. Pasadena Phil on November 19th, 2011 6:30 pm

    So THAT'S your secret!

  12. SignPainterGuy on November 19th, 2011 6:47 pm

    Must be, at least until the electrical tape falls off the web cam !

    I can`t in all honesty imagine that my posts are of any greater "quality" than most others ! ;-)

  13. backwoodsconsr on November 19th, 2011 10:12 pm

    Quantity seems to be the driving factor more than anything, and like you say, the numbers move slower the higher you get. I got where I am in about a week, but I'm seeing the raises come less often. I also noticed how long it took you to get from 100 to 101, and that's in spite of your constant chatter.

  14. SignPainterGuy on November 19th, 2011 11:20 pm

    Oh, my chatter is constant is it ? Just go ahead and say it – JABBER FINGERS ! :-)

  15. backwoodsconsr on November 19th, 2011 11:24 pm

    I knew there was some term you used to describe it, I just couldn't remember what it was.

    "Beware the Jabberwock, my son."

  16. SignPainterGuy on November 19th, 2011 11:50 pm

    Oh man ! Now I`m gonna hafta watch "Alice in Wonderland" to get the name of the special sword !

  17. SignPainterGuy on November 20th, 2011 12:03 am

    Maybe this will help put things in proper perspective Philmeister; I checked my Intense Debate comment stream. The earliest ID credited comment was 138 weeks ago at Glenn Beck`s then brand new 9-12 Project w/s.

  18. Pasadena Phil on November 20th, 2011 12:14 am

    My earliest credited comment was 78 weeks ago and it looks like I'm only getting credit for commenting on this blog. I comment all over the place. Gotta get the brand out there.

  19. SignPainterGuy on November 20th, 2011 12:18 am

    Look, you just hit 60 !

  20. Doug on November 20th, 2011 12:23 am

    I confess to knowing NOTHING about how the comment rating system works… if that wasn't obvious already.

    Good to know P-Phil's getting comment credit here though!

  21. SignPainterGuy on November 20th, 2011 12:25 am

    I comment using FaceBook, Disqus, Blogger, WordPress, maybe more, but they don`t seem to cross-credit !

    At one site, they offer WordPress and others. I sign in with my WP acct., I make my longwinded comment and hit "submit". THEN it tells me I don`t own that name. I have to do it all over again as "guest". GRRRR !

    There are at least 3 guys with my real name, one owns / runs a really freaky circus, but I`m the only SignPainterGuy !

  22. Marshall_Will on November 20th, 2011 2:32 am

    Never forget the time I was visiting a friend in Perris, CA. Coming from Portland, it was a long drive to do in a day. Got off on the wrong exit. Yikes!

    With Mrs. Will, teen daughter and her friend I was way off course, tired and frustrated. Thank GOD… it was on Diamond Bar Blvd! Kindly fellow Conservative, dead of night, set us on a right path all… while walking his poodle. Scooper at the ready!

    ( Rich people are such @$$holes you know!? )

  23. Marshall_Will on November 20th, 2011 2:34 am

    I'm afraid to look at mine. Run-on posts result in Point Reductions. My numbers are probably in the neg.

  24. SignPainterGuy on November 20th, 2011 5:22 am

    Hey buddy, I hate to break it to ya, but while you were concentrating on your clients` investments, your PTs and BVDs and SUVs and giving tea party speeches between stock crashes and weekend warrior excursions, you neglected to sign up with Intense Debate. You don`t be got no numbers, mains ! ;-)

    Sign on up and in no time at all you can be competin` with that backwoods character who thinks I chatter constantly ! Hmmph !

  25. backwoodsconsr on November 20th, 2011 5:53 am

    Your hands are proof that there really is such a thing as perpetual motion. You should be proud!

  26. SignPainterGuy on November 20th, 2011 6:16 am

    :-)

  27. backwoodsconsr on November 20th, 2011 7:33 am

    I did an internet search trying to find out something and came up empty. The answer is well hidden.

  28. backwoodsconsr on November 20th, 2011 10:19 pm

    I just put the book on my Amazon wish list. I don't think I've ever read it. I'm currently reading a book about the collapse of the Soviet economy. It was written by two Soviet economists back in 1989, and every chapter begins with a quote from Alice in Wonderland. I see enough references to it in other places as well that I think it's time I gained a greater familiarity with it.

  29. SignPainterGuy on November 20th, 2011 10:53 pm

    I`ve seen both movies, own the last, never read the book all the way thru !

  30. backwoodsconsr on November 20th, 2011 10:59 pm

    The one I put on my wish list contains both books in one volume. It's only 140 pages and I can get it for less than 8 bucks. I'll order it the next time I place an order, probably in about two weeks.

  31. SignPainterGuy on November 20th, 2011 11:23 pm

    I got the free Kindle for PCs; came w/ 3 books installed. I checked on another book, but even though IT turned out to be free, Amazon still wanted my acct. info, so I closed the tab. I wondered later if they don`t do PayPal, which I have an acct.with. Do you know ? I can check, just wondered. I really, really, REALLY don`t want to set up accts w/ everybody !

  32. backwoodsconsr on November 20th, 2011 11:36 pm

    I just ran a quick check. It doesn't appear that they do. I'm set up as a regular customer, so they have my payment method on record. I can place orders pretty quickly and I've never had any problems with them.

  33. SignPainterGuy on November 20th, 2011 11:45 pm

    I`ll look it over and set up an acct with them; they are so big after all they couldn`t afford to mess things up for themselves by letting personal info out ! You`d thonk !

  34. backwoodsconsr on November 21st, 2011 12:28 am

    My sentiments exactly. That kind of thing could cost them billions in lost business.

  35. SignPainterGuy on November 21st, 2011 1:11 am

    Bit the bullet, set up an acct and downloaded the book I wanted, "Uncle Tom`s Cabin".

    My Win. OS tried to complicate things by throwing windows at me saying to choose a viewing app. I opened Kindle and there it was, so I thumbed my nose at Win.

  36. SignPainterGuy on November 21st, 2011 1:32 am

    If you had Kindle for PC (downloaded FREE), or a real Kindle, you could download any of several editions of "Alice in Wonderland" from FREE to $3. from Amazon.com.

  37. backwoodsconsr on November 21st, 2011 7:49 am

    I know Kindles are cheaper, but I love books. I've been reading them all my life and I haven't seen anything that can lure me away from them. And besides, they don't need electricity.

  38. SignPainterGuy on November 21st, 2011 6:40 pm

    I don`t care about the Kindle E-Reader itself, just Kindle for PC; it`s free as are quite a few books at Amazon. I prefer holding a book and newspaper in my hands. We lost our Books A Million, which I liked and now it`s Barnes and Noble, which I really don`t ! Dang !

  39. backwoodsconsr on November 21st, 2011 6:49 pm

    BAM lost me to Amazon. Even as huge as the selection of books is in their stores, it doesn't hold a candle to the what Amazon has online. I can easily find dozens if not hundreds of books on any topic, along with some real bargains. I heard about the book on the Soviet economy I'm reading from T. Sowell. It lists for $134. I got it for less than two bucks. It was advertised as used, but this copy had never been read.

  40. SignPainterGuy on November 21st, 2011 7:51 pm

    I looked at the difference in price last night on used books and dvds. Goodness !

    The girls at Books A Million were always good to me, helpful and friendly; never bugged me about Christian or conservative stuff I bought. B&N can`t make that claim !
