Mike McKee on Occupy Wall Street's "problems"
The political left owns these morons. They're merely a more visible manifestation of what most liberals think. This circus ought to invalidate liberalism for good (or at least until the next generation comes along that unfortunately has to learn this lesson all over again).

Contrast the crime, disease, and overall idiocy of OWS with the Tea Party demonstrations and anyone with a functioning brain cell can immediately see the stark difference. When 1.5 million Tea Partiers descended on D.C. in 2009 not only was there no crime or arrests (a ridiculous notion if you were actually there to witness it, and I was) but they didn't even leave so much as a discarded gum wrapper in their wake. After the rally, Tea Party protesters also neatly stacked their signs around trash cans. I walked the entire section of the mall where the ra
lly took place during, after, and the next day and once everyone left it looked like no one had even been there. The very same result occurred a year later when 500,000 - 600,000 attended Glenn Beck's Restoring Honor rally.

Why the vastly different results? Simple: Leftists/liberals/progressives think the world owes them something and that everyone else should provide it. They also want to be able to engage in whatever depraved behavior they desire free from criticism. This is one reason they are so eager to wield the force of government to bend everyone else to their will, and if that is not possible then they use it to shut up their critics.

Conservative America, on the other hand, is composed of people who represent what has traditionally been good about this country. They are hard-working people who have common sense (ergo, why you don't see them sleeping in herds in the park) who understand certain immutable principles that are necessary for a happy life and a functioning, civilized society.

Eat the rich? If it weren't for conservatives the loony leftists wouldn't have the time to utter such silly statements. They'd be too busy eating each other in a vain attempt to survive.

The Coinage Act of 1792

The Coinage Act of 1792 is the enactment of the laws that support the United States Constitution. It has been amended and added to, but it is still the controlling legal law for our currency and coin. It was even the basis of a great part of the prosecution of von Nothaus. (aside: after reading the text of the jury verdict of von Nothaus's trail in Statesville, NC, I am no longer so certain that the Gov't was being tyrannical. Not sure they were right, but not certain) But that is not why I am writing this. I have discovered that § 19 of the Act authorizes the death penalty for government officials who debase the currency. Wouldn't that be a sensation! Just one trial of a Secretary of the Treasury. We would need to win, of course. But even if he were given clemency instead of actually killed, it would still put the fear of the Lord in the next Secretary.
