Via BadBlue and Trevor Loudon's New Zeal Blog comes this story of a group of patriots who have successfully (so far) stopped the state of Connecticut from spending some $300,000 of taxpayers money to refurbish a building that the Communist Party uses.
Waving American and “Don’t Tread on Me” flags and patriotic placards, the speakers called on Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy to change his mind and remove the $300,000 request from Monday’s State Bonding Commission agenda.
This isn’t just a matter of New Haven or Connecticut political wrangling or budgeting, said one of the event’s speakers, Republican state Sen. Len Suzio of Meriden. This has historic and worldwide implications.
Suzio called the People’s Center crew “people who are hell-bent on destroying the American capitalist system.”I certainly don't want my tax dollars funding my enemies in any way, do you? Kudos to these patriots in Connecticut who've decided they've had enough of this sort of crap from the elected officials who are supposed to be acting in our interests.
Since I'm watching the U S Open and rooting for my favorite lefthanded golfer, Phil Mickelson, I'm in a slightly less curmudgeonly mood than normal today. In fact, I think I'll even post a song to commemorate this victory.
Buckaroos and buckarettes, here's Todd Rundgren with Just One Victory.
