Tea Party Anti-Public Union Rally Indiana

Posted on Youtube by njellis

We attended this rally, in which the Union thugs did the following:

1: threw a snowball at us, 2: blew a blow horn in our face about 2 feet away directly at us, 3: Splashed a group of women holding signs intentionally, after failing for 3 passes,‎4: almost hit 1 person, 5: one guy got in my face 1″ away literally – expecting to intimidate me, curse at me 6: question my ability to have a voice in our democracy insinuating I’ve never done “hard work” (not realizing I did work for a cable company before..)

Guess they didn’t get the memo on being “civil”. See me surprised? No, no you don’t. Everyone should go and see first hand, instead of listening to the news. Wish I’d of brought my vado camera.

IN: Winter Storm 2/1/11

From:  roolu

Just passing along that they are predicting 15 inches of snow on top of the ice we got here in the central region. I also just found out that they are mobilizing the National Guard Statewide for search and rescue (this from my nephew who got called out). Looks like this booger of a storm is going to get ugly. Be sure you all have what you need and be safe out there.

Obscene, threatening comments posted at anti-TSA website traced to Homeland Security servers

Officials from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) seem to now be going on the offensive against those who oppose its new invasive and unconstitutional airport security protocols being carried out by agents of the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA). According to George Donnelly, owner of, government workers appear to be posting hateful messages on his anti-TSA blog under the guise of anonymity.

One such comment, which has since been deleted, said, “F**k you, f**k all you c**ksuckers, you wont change anything.” Another stated, “Ride the bus, TSA is here to stay there [sic] doing a great job keeping americia [sic] safe.”

Donnelly says that upon tracing the origin of the comments, he discovered that they came from the servers of, the official website of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Nineteen comments in total were all posted from the same server, including the two previously mentioned. And while all were worded in different tones and voices, they all expressed hostility to those opposing the TSA.

“Some questions come to mind,” wrote Donnelly on his blog in response to his findings. “Is this an official statement? If not, is it an accurate representation of the DHS position? Was this person on the public dime when he or she posted this? Who posted this and what is their position with DHS?”

“This is not the first time we have been trolled by individuals connected to the TSA. Someone posted a personal attack on me from an IP belonging to mitre,org, a corporation whose core competency is securing federal government contracts, including DHS and TSA ones. Any effective TSA resistance threatens not only the TSA itself but also the bureaucrats who got us to this point and the corporations who are getting paid for the technology.” is working towards abolishing the new TSA protocols by pushing airlines to take a stand. And according to a Washington Post piece from November, the Electronic Privacy Information Center, a civil liberties group, has filed a lawsuit against the TSA citing the unconstitutionality of its current actions.
