Blue Tiger Democrats Emphasize Civic Engagement
Not Corporate Buy Outs:
Let's face it. When it comes to the influence of big money on political
campaigns the mainline Democratic party leaders are only about 1/2 step behind
the elephant droppings. Blue tiger democrats are working to get the party back in
the hands of the people where it belongs.
Veteran's Assitance Program
Veterans who have served America loyally are being shortchanged and they need our help. These young men and women are deserving of the nation's very best, but budget strain has left VA Hospitals without everything they need. The Blue Tiger Democrats and our partners across the state have decided to do something about it.
Upon returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan, America's brave soldiers in hospitals across the county are now are lacking such basic items as:
* Razors and Shaving Cream
* Magazines and Books
* CDs and DVDs
* Coffee and Snacks
* Toothbrushes and Toothpaste
* Board Games
* Playing Cards
Blue Tiger's Veterans Assistance Events focus on collecting goods such as those listed above and delivering them to those who need them most, the brave men and women who have served our country.
Senior Citizen Technology Training Program
Digital technology has become an increasingly essential tool for daily living. Computer access and competence are now critical requirements for staying in touch with friends and family, purchasing consumer goods and services, accessing health care and insurance resources and contacting government officials.
Unfortunately, many people remain without basic computer skills or access and must endure inconvenience, social isolation, higher costs and reduced information resources as a result. Senior citizens, who use computers at half the rate of the general population, suffer perhaps the greatest relative disadvantage from this "digital divide," since many of the most serious challenges of aging (limited mobility, isolation, reduced income, and the need for health care information and assistance) are well suited to technology-based solutions, yet seniors are often excluded from these opportunities due to lack of access to technology and training.
Recognizing this significant problem, Blue Tiger has spearheaded an effort to train senior citizens in the field of computer technology.
|In this clip, corporations like Bechtel, Coca-cola and IBM are all exposed for their insatiable greed that trumps all else. Bechtel, you should know, was founded by John McCone, who was also Director of CIA in the 1960’s. McCone then became chairman of ITT Corp. which in turn funneled money into the CIA to wage a take-over of Chile in 1973. On 9/11/1973, the coup killed thousands of non-violent political enemies including democratically elected President Allende.|
Today, Bechtel and ITT both receive millions upon billions of no-bid Iraq War contracts.
Support major corporate reform. Our future may depend on it.

"For globalization to work for America, it must work for working people. We should measure the success of our economy by the breadth of our middle class, and the scope of opportunity offered to the poorest child to climb into the middle class."

On Tuesday the ICE men came to town's like Worthington, Minnesota, surrounded the Swift packing plant and hauled away around 250 illegal aliens who will most likely be deported. There's lots of debate about the importance of the "free market" and how we must have it to compete globally. In Thursday's St. Paul Pioneer Press, Ed Lotterman is his column on economics hit the nail on the head about how this "free market" works.
The following paragraph sums up how this "free market" economics works:
"Employers like cheap labor. In a competitive sector like meatpacking, if one company increases its vigilance in hiring, it will be disadvantaged compared to competitors that do not. If effective enforcement applied to all plants, the available labor supply would be smaller and wage rates would rise. Profits of packing companies would not be hurt in the long run, but meat prices to consumers would rise."
It's all about a cheap market of labor. Read Lotterman's entire column.

"We frequently see the respectful attentions of the world more strongly directed towards the rich and the great, than towards the wise and the virtuous. We see frequently the vices and the follies of the powerful much less despised than the poverty and weaknes of the the innocent."
"Their ad campaign is shameful, particularly in this season of peace and goodwill. While the union leaders are wasting their members' dues on an attack campaign, Wal-Mart is benefiting tens of millions of working families through its low prices and quality job opportunities. And once again this year, Wal-Mart is partnering with the Salvation Army in its red kettle drive to raise millions of dollars for worthy causes."
Spokeswoman for Working Families for Wal-Mart
a group formed to defend the retail chain from union attacks
"When we celebrate Christmas, we mark the birth of Jesus Christ who gave the moral imperative of the Golden Rule, a rule that should challenge Christian consumers to consider where they shop. That should challenge Wal-Mart to change its corporate practices for the better."
Executive director of Baptist Center for Ethics
WakeUpWal-Mart also plans to hold local candlelight vigils and a day of prayer at Wal-Mart stores in over 40 cities and 24 states, including Florida, Alabama, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Mississippi, and Missouri.
(Joe Phelps is pastor of Highland Baptist Church in Louisville, Ky. and appears in a current commercial ad sponsored by Wake-up Walmart.This is a column by Phelps that appears in ethicsdaily.com.)
I accepted a unique opportunity to appear in a 30-second "Wake Up Wal-Mart" commercial. It appears across the nation on major television networks this Thursday and Friday.
"Wake Up Wal-Mart" (wakeupwalmart.com) is a national campaign that challenges the country's largest retailer to clean up its act on multiple fronts, particularly in matters that adversely affect its 1.4 million employees.
Why would a minister appear in such an ad campaign?
I accepted the chance to speak to millions of Americans because of my pastoral role of evangelist--one who announces the message of God's agenda as seen in the life of our Savior, Jesus.
The Bible is full of God's passion about the livelihood and welfare of workers, their families, and their communities. At the same time, God also expresses grave concern for employers who exploit their workers. For the God of the Bible, words like peace and truth aren't abstract ideals; they are to be lived out in how we interact with God and each other, not just on Sunday, but every day.
Below is the commercial featuring the Rev. Phelps.
Here's another commercial by Wake-up Walmart featuring actual employees.
. Avoid carrot sticks. Anyone who puts carrots on a holiday buffet table knows nothing of the Christmas spirit. In fact, if you see carrots, leave immediately. Go next door, where they're serving rum balls.
2. Drink as much eggnog as you can and quickly. You can't find it any other time of year but now. So drink up! Who cares that it has 10,000 calories in every sip? It's not as if you're going to turn into an "eggnog-aholic" or something. It's a treat. Enjoy it!!!! Have one for me. Have two. It's later than you think. It's Christmas!
3. If something comes with gravy, use it. That's the whole point of gravy. Gravy does not stand-alone. Pour it on. Make a volcano out of your mashed potatoes. Fill it with gravy. Eat the volcano. Repeat.
4. As for mashed potatoes, always ask if they're made with skim milk or whole milk. If it's skim, pass. Why bother? It's like buying a sports car with an automatic transmission.
5. Do not have a snack before going to a party in an effort to control your eating. The whole point of going to a Christmas party is to eat other people's food for free. Lots of it. Hello???
6. Under no circumstances should you exercise between now and New Year's. You can do that in January when you have nothing else to do. This is the time for long naps, which you'll need after circling the buffet table while carrying a 10-pound plate of food and that vat of eggnog.
7. If you come across something really good at a buffet table, like frosted Christmas cookies in the shape and size of Santa, position yourself near them and don't budge. Have as many as you can before becoming the center of attention. They're like a beautiful pair of shoes. If you leave them behind, you're never going to see them again.
8. Same for pies. Apple, pumpkin and mincemeat - have a slice of each. Or, if you don't like mincemeat, have two apples and one pumpkin. Always have three. When else do you get to have more than one dessert? Labor Day?
9. Did someone mention fruitcake? Granted, it's loaded with the mandatory celebratory calories, but avoid it at all cost. I mean, have some standards.
10. One final tip: If you don't feel terrible when you leave the party or get up from the table, you haven't been paying attention. Reread tips: Start over, but hurry, January is just around the corner.
Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO what a ride!"

Tuesday night's gathering of the Hudson Socialists
was such a huge success the managment has decided to make it a weekly event. Bring your Socialist friends to enjoy their favorite proletariat libation and to join in the scheming and plotting to raise taxes and promote the Socialist utopian agenda. For Socialist ladies, Drinks are Free.
See you there!

WOTBL-TV commentary by Max Fullofit.
Remember, the ontheborderline.nut Capitalist Cookoo Crew are Hudson's wealth building elite.
That's why they blame "poverty "for their referendum loss.
A borderline spokesnut added " You don't get wealthy by being generous, or wasting money on things like political signs. Cost cutting is a way of life, this side
of the border!"

Borderline Blog Indoctrination Video Discovered Near Government School Dumpster
(Parental guidance alert: We warn viewers that this video comes extremely close to displaying full-frontal, cartoon nudity. If this were shown in a government school class, members of the John Birch Society would be up armed with duct tape at the next school board meeting. Of course, while they were protesting with duct tape at the board meeting, their kids would be seeing much more significantly more real cleave on Desperate Housewives. Of course, you can always click on the Google "images" using the words "big boobs" and find the real thing. Not that we would encourage that on this blog, but the options is there and it was really easy to add the link -- so I did. Just don't mention this to your teenage sons, because they will laugh at you for being such a dimwit and start questioning why you spend your days at home TIVO-ing Clifford The Big Red Dog.)

How to convert Rush Limbuagh pod casts into skunk lure.

Breaking News: Naysayers Concede Defeat Prior to Opening of Polls.
As reported today on our sister news outlet MS-WOTBL, Hudson's Naysayers have conceded defeat in tommorrow's school building referendum.

Reflecting on their inpending loss, the Naysayers took stock of what went wrong with their campaign and compiled a TOP TEN list of items to that lead to their defeat and vowed to correct them before their next attempt to tear down public education.
Top Ten Reasons OTBL Bloogers Couldn't Stop Hudson Socialists From Raising Your Taxes.
10. Carnac's turban was too tight and contricted blood flow to his brain.
9. "Banner police" allowed illegal message to be displayed to 10 downtown voters.
8. Lack of snow made Yellow "Yes" signs stand out more than illegal "We Can Do Better"
7. Luke's cell phone was "on the blink" curtailing his late night threat calling.
6. Dr. Bill ran out of internet ink to post his 700 page thesis on the "Evils of Government
5. OTBL Admin. sunk into deep depression after bloggers who passed the rigorous background
check started cursing on his blog.
4. SpiritofBS was confronted by the Spirit of Christmas Past and voted "Yes" for new school.

2. Jack Bauer went "missing in action".

Question: What is it that the solciast scum in Hudson get so worked up about when it comes to student protests or hanging political signs above Main Street, yet somehow forget about when the John Birch Society stands up at school board meetings to attack the school board?

The results are in. Believing that there was no good reason to wait for the results from the polls on tommorrow's referendum, the Hudson Socialist Club, forged ahead with the "NAME THAT GOVERNMENT SCHOOL" contest. The ontheborderline.nut bloggers contributed a number of worthy suggestions including;
The Ronald Bernth Young Skulls Learning Center
The It Takes A Kommunity Elementary
The Hudson Area Early Years Group Sensitivity Rearing House
But the judges decision was made and is final.
The new Government Elementary School will be named.
St. Croix Meadows Elementary Government Indoctrination Center.
The Hudson Socialists couldn't hide their glee over the new name.

"Poverty is a threat to peace."
"I believe terrorism cannot be won over by military action. Terrorism must be condemned in the strongest language. We must stand solidly against it, and find all the means to end it."
"We must address the root causes of terrorism to end it for all time to come. I believe that putting resources into improving the lives of the poor people is a better strategy than spending it on guns."
"Peace should be understood in a human way-in a broad social, political and economic way. Peace is threatened by unjust economic, social and political order, absence of democracy, environmental degradation and absence of human rights."

After an extensive investigative search, Holy Sacred Oracle reporter Megaton Hotone was able to uncover part of the official talking points used to control blog participants on the local OTBL blog. By following a trail of peanuts shells that led to a dumpster out behind a local government school building, Hotone discovered the talking points crumpled up on the ground next to the dumpster. At first, she thought it was dog waste. Below is an actual photocopy of the points. It was certified official by the Grudge Report.
