Barack Obama, our next President

From an article called written by Obama

"In theory, community organizing provides a way to merge various strategies for neighborhood empowerment. Organizing begins with the premise that (1) the problems facing inner-city communities do not result from a lack of effective solutions, but from a lack of power to implement these solutions; (2) that the only way for communities to build long-term power is by organizing people and money around a common vision; and (3) that a viable organization can only be achieved if a broadly based indigenous leadership — and not one or two charismatic leaders — can knit together the diverse interests of their local institutions"

This is pretty much sums up the teachings of Alinsky

ummm.they seem to have been very patient for two decades now...as they let this guy try to find some legal support for his thievery...

if they outlaws would not try to prevent the law from doing what they are supposed to do, there would be no violence...there is only one group starting the violence here.the feds would have just come in and seized the property peacefully and left as the courts ordered them to..it is these thieves that are provoking violence..

You're the one being silly to say the least!


Please show me where Republican's have rewritten Alinsky's Rules for Radicals....I can't find it anywhere. But these tactics look very familiar coming from the liberals I've encountered on Topix:

The rules

“Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have."
“Never go outside the expertise of your people.”
“Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.”
“Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”
“Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”
“A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”
“A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.”
“Keep the pressure on. Never let up.”
“The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”
"The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition."
“If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.”
“The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.”
“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”

"A tortoise isn’t the reason why BLM is harassing a 67 year-old rancher. They want his land. The tortoise wasn’t of concern when Harry Reid worked BLM to literally change the boundaries of the tortoise’s habitat to accommodate the development of his top donor, Harvey Whittemore. Whittemore was convicted of illegal campaign contributions to Senator Reid. Reid’s former senior adviser is now the head of BLM. Reid is accused of using the new BLM chief as a puppet to control Nevada land (already over 84% of which is owned by the federal government) and pay back special interests. BLM has proven that they’ve a situational concern for the desert tortoise as they’ve had no problem waiving their rules concerning wind or solar power development. Clearly these developments have vastly affected a tortoise habitat more than a century-old, quasi-homesteading grazing area. If only Clive Bundy were a big Reid donor.

BLM has also tried to argue that the rules have changed, long after Bundy claims he secured rights and paid his dues to Clark County, Nevada. BLM says they supersede whatever agreement Bundy had prior; they demanded that he reduce his living, his thousand-some-odd head of cattle down to a tiny herd of 150. It’s easy for the government to grant itself powers of overreach, but it doesn’t make it right. Many bad things are done in the name of unjust laws. Just look at Obamacare. This heavy-handed tactic has run the other ranchers from the area and now Bundy is the last one. He’s the last one because he stood up to the federal government.

Family dollar is opening about 25 new stores this month alone, none in VA though. Problem is that Dollar Stores, Dollar Tree and similar all expanded with new stores due to cheaper land prices, lower construction costs and "favors" from the municipalities they build in.

I find those stores very handy for certain items such as cleaning products.

Coldwater Creek is hardly a low-end store....in fact, their problem is probably the relatively high prices of their merchandise....
as for dollar stores in general, they offer lower prices than other stores for certain brand name items, and intelligent consumers want the lowest prices regardless of the state of the economy......
the cautionary statements are standard verbiage in virtually every corporate annual report.....
get out of your nursing home and see the real world....
Coldwater Creek merchandise is cheaply made of inferior fabrics. Walk in the door of a store and you will find just about everything 40% off...right off the bat. People have finally figures out they can do better. Don't worry, you are not losing your 99 Cents Only Store. They have better management.

The formal name for that is wage theft, which occurs when an employer withholds pay rightfully earned by an hourly worker. It happens in a variety of ways, from not paying for overtime, to denying mandated breaks, to subtracting hours from employees' weekly total.
84% of "those who responded?"

Payroll shenanigans are rampant in the fast food industry__particularly in the smaller franchise deals(3 stores or fewer). Some actually pay employees on bank cards that charge fees. Others, expect workers to put in extra time for free or will offer food, drinks as a trade off.

Nothing new__lower wage people have had to put up with bs for going on ever.

In the end though, the employers that chisel get what they pay for.

I stand corrected. I went back 400 posts and discovered it was Carol with whom I was conversing about religion, not you. And, it was she who said, "I'd rather change the subject if you wouldn't mind." You two are so much alike I get you confused and I didn't get home until 2 am this morning so I'm obviously still foggy. My apology for the misstep.

o again with the turtle? what in hell does tha have to do with anything here? why do you parrot things you don't even understand/ do you enjoy looking stupid?

again, this guy has had TWO DECADES to find legal standing for this supposed agreement he thinks he had...it did not stand up to our laws.

there is nothing unjust about these laws. he wants to use this land without paying for it..

he is a thief..

<quoted text>600,000 acres of federal land. The teabag lemmings are merely parroting the FOX line.
Cliven Bundy owes the government "at least" $1,000,000,000 is grazing fees going back some 20 years. He's a nutbag.
600,000 acres!!! OMG! Why would anyone in their right mind support this snake's position?

I read this morning that the director of the Bureau of Land Management has stopped the round-up. What's wrong with these people? The sale of those cattle by the BLM will go a long way into paying Bundy's bill. After 20 years of warnings, he does not deserve another break and stopping the round-up because "of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of the public" is a cop out. They are letting this snake call the plays. Shame on the BLM.

The BLM's statement:

"As we have said from the beginning of the gather to remove illegal cattle from federal land consistent with court orders, a safe and peaceful operation is our number one priority. After one week, we have made progress in enforcing two recent court orders to remove the trespass cattle from public lands that belong to all Americans.

"Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of the public.

"We ask that all parties in the area remain peaceful and law-abiding as the Bureau of Land Management and National Park Service work to end the operation in an orderly manner."
