How to fight a fire without corporate influence

At the beginning of the fight over the collective bargaining privilege, there were calls from the leftists to try to live in this world without government influence, with that they meant to cow us into admitting the government workers are necessary and are worth their weight in gold. Thus, unless we ordinary taxpayers wanted to forgo the use of the police or the fire department or streets, then we should simply shut up and take our medicine. And then the whole argument sunk to the depth of the Koch brothers hatred and calls for boycotts of the companies that refuse to show support for the unions. Now we are getting the usual screech to "tax the rich" and by the rich, they mean the corporations like the Koch's own. So lets use their age old argument and see where it leads.

The unions members hate corporations, so much so they want them to give up all their profits to the union employees, if it isn't in the employees pockets, it doesn't count. So the government employees, having no corporations to be beholden to, can get away with not using anything that a corporation has produced. Or can they?

So how do you fight a fire without corporate influence. The fire is only two blocks away from the firehouse, so response time should be quite quick. However...... no corporate products can be utilized.

No alarms can be sounded at the firehouse because the alarms were made by a corporation, the electricity provided by another corporation, and the phone call wouldn't get through due to the telecommunications being a corporate entity.
You cannot use the fire truck, it was made by a corporation, and the fuel used to move the fire truck, another corporation.
The road, which may have been constructed by government union labor, was made with corporate concrete extracted from corporate gravel pits, utilizing corporate-made heavy equipment.
But the fire is only two block away, no need for the roads or alarms, we can see and smell the smoke, we can run to the location. BUT.......
Although there is plenty of city water available, the fire hydrants are made by a corporation, so they are off limits. The hoses are another corporate product. So how about an old fashioned bucket brigade? Not possible, the buckets were made by a corporation, and don't even begin to think you could use your helmets, boots, or any other protective gear, corporate products also.
So how then do you fight a fire without corporate influence, the only weapon you have left.......
you piss on it.

Try doing any government job without the corporations. Before you hate on anything and everything corporate, remember the corporations are what is keeping this country running, they sell their products to everyone so we can all do our jobs. And as a bonus they hire us to do the jobs that pay for the products we need to buy from them. So how is taking more from the evil corporations going to benefit the working families? Maybe the liberals need to answer some tough questions before they begin screeching for a recall. Which side of the bread is the butter on?

A young patriot, we need more.

The left has no respect for anyone, and they want us to respect them? Not until they are willing to give back what they want to receive. Lets teach them a lesson. They have nothing to add to the argument, all they do is distract and disrupt.

Taxing the rich doesn't work, never has, never will.

Tax cuts vs Tax hikes

On radio today, Glenn addressed several arguments about tax cuts vs tax hikes. He referenced several of the charts below:

Argument: “Can’t we just tax the rich?”

“But, the rich don’t pay their fair share”

Argument: “Is the deficit really that big a deal?”

Dear President Obama:

You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.

You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.

You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.

You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.

You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.

You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don't understand it at its core.

You scare me because you lack humility and 'class', always blaming others.

You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail..

You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the 'blame America ' crowd and deliver this message abroad.

You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.

You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.

You scare me because you prefer 'wind mills' to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.

You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.

You scare me because you have begun to use 'extortion' tactics against certain banks and corporations.

You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.

You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.

You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.

You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.

You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaugh's, Hannity's, O'Reillys and Becks who offer opposing,
conservative points of view.

You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.

Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

Lou Pritchett

This letter was sent to the NY Times but they never acknowledged it.
Big surprise. Since it hit the internet, however, it has had over 500,000 hits. Keep it going. All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing. It's happening right now.*
