Distribute the Wealth: American Messiah Hands Out Checks
Indianapolis – Lines were long and tempers flared Wednesday not to vote but to get paid for canvassing for Barack Obama. Several hundred people are still waiting to get their pay for last-minute campaigning. Police were called to the Obama campaign office on North Meridian Street downtown to control the crowd.
The line was long and the crowd was angry at times.
“I want my money today! It’s my money. I want it right now!” yelled one former campaign worker. [...]
Maybe they should unionize? Obama won by 6 points and the margins in the key states that made the electoral count look mighty high were fairly tight, was this the big get out the vote move.. Sloshing some of the 700 million dollars he raised around to eager grabbers? It has been years since I was in Skokie IL, but somehow even internationally I can’t help shake the feeling that Chicago is coming to all of us soon. Oh Joy.
Soon they may be lining up for bread like in the Soviet Union..
“I want my bread today, it’s my bread. I want it right now.”
Woohoo! Viva Socialism! You want some butter with that?..
You have to line up over there under the sign marked Pelosi..
