DNC Charlotte “Hug-A-Thug” Booth (No, Really)

September 3rd, 2012 No comments

“Come on, gimme a hug.”

I guess the union thugs realize people are on to them, since all that trouble they caused in Wisconsin.   Found this story at Citizen Journalist, one of my new favorite blogs. 

 “Hug-a-Thug” at the DNC

More fun at the DNC.

The local AFL-CIO has a booth where union members will be giving out free hugs on Labor Day, in celebration of American workers on the eve of the Democratic Convention in Charlotte. Calling the event, “Hug-a-Thug”, the Union is trying to fight portrayals from critics that they are thugs, and promote the importance of unions.

Oh, what a world, what a world!

From the Washington Times

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A torrential downpour that struck Charlotte Saturday  afternoon damaged the Mount Rushmore-style sand sculpture bust of President  Obama — an ominous beginning to what many fear is a plagued convention.

Workers were trying Saturday afternoon to reform the base of the sculpture,  built from sand brought in from Myrtle Beach, S.C., pounding and smoothing out  the sand that had washed off the facade.

Dems Remove Massive Amounts Of Sand From Red State Myrtle Beach

September 1st, 2012 No comments

 

Huh? I am perplexed.  It’s being reported that Democrats have removed over 15 tons of sand from Myrtle Beach, SC in order to erect a giant Barack Obama sand sculpture at the Democrat National Convention in Charlotte, NC.  Why am I perplexed and not merely amused?  Because in 1998, the Army Corp of Engineers spent $60 million of public money to put sand back into the beach!

From the Myrtle Beach Visitor’s Bureau:

Myrtle Beach area beaches are wider than ever, the result of a two-year renourishment project completed in 1998. It pumped almost five million cubic yards of new sand onto the shores. This $60 million enhancement plan was conducted by the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers with federal, state and local funding in cooperation with Myrtle Beach area municipalities and a national dredging company.

 

If I was a taxpayer in Myrtle Beach, I would want to know how 15 tons of South Carolina sand ended up at the DNC Convention in Charlotte, NC, and exactly where it came from.  It’s also puzzling that Democrats, who consider themselves bastions of environmental policy, would actually think that utilizing sand for this purpose was a good idea, especially when beaches remain a fragile habitat for many types of endangered wildlife.

On a related note, please sing along.
