Woodruff Arts Center President and CEO Virginia Hepner says, “We continue to ask the musicians for constructive ideas to help us address these challenges, and we are frustrated that they have turned a deaf ear to the situation.”
Okay, Ms. Hepner, let me apologize for causing you any frustration. Perhaps being locked out of my job, denied my salary and health care coverage, and treated like a pawn in some Kafka-esque chess game have caused the deafness you bemoan. Deaf though I may be, I am not mute. I offer to you the following Constructive Ideas, in the interest of helping you address these challenges:
Constructive Idea #1: END THE LOCKOUT. This may seem counter-intuitive to you; after all, the ASO’s own spokesperson claimed that the orchestra saves $25,000 to $30,000 every day the lockout continues. By my calculations, you’ve already saved between $1.125 and $1.35 million in musician…
You say toe-may-toe. I say toe-mah-toe. You say White House Ebola Response Coordinator. I say Ebola Czar. Either way, President Obama’s appointment of Ron Klain has as been a bit of an enigma for most Americans.
I mean, wouldn’t it make more sense to pick someone, say, with an infectious disease or public health background? Or at least some sort of medical doctor? But “he’s strong. He’s very tough,” said CNN political analyst David Gergen. “It’s important in this job to be a coordinator; you have to knock heads together. He’s tough enough to do that.” Okay… now I get it. POTUS was looking for someone to arm wrestle ebola, not actually coordinate the government’s response to the deadly virus. Ron Klain… you da man!
Anyway, in addition to possessing bouncer-like brawn and burliness and a super-awesome head of hair, Mr. Klain’s other noteworthy qualifications include being the Obama administration’s point man in the Solyndra fraud; the muscle behind 2000 presidential candidate, Al Gore’s, Florida ballot recount debacle; and former Chief of Staff and trusted advisor to Uncle Joey McMensa…
…AND, rumor has it, he stays at Holiday Inn Express when he travels.
There’s a new kind of flash mob, hitting shopping malls these days, designed to incite violence and provoke anger. Silly me… I thought flash mobs were supposed to make people happy. Then again, some people aren’t happy unless they’re complaining about something.

Protesters in the St. Louis area decided to expand their cause from demonstrating against the shooting death of black man Michael Brown to becoming “freedom fighters” in the struggle for “racial equality.”
Demonstrators decided to deliver a message to all of the “racist white people” in the area by invading a local mall and shouting their demands for freedom, although most in the crowd are still puzzled over what freedom these people actually want, seeing as how they have the same rights and protections as everyone else.
If you’ve got an extra 3 minutes and 42 seconds to play with sometime today, take a gander at this manufactured outrage.

This seems a tad bit over dramatic, don’t you think?
It’s pretty obvious that these people are race baiters that have been brainwashed by too much exposure to folks like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, men who make their living stirring up racial division.
The angry young lady in this video continues to chant about fighting for her freedom, saying she has nothing to lose but her chains, yet it’s not the white man who is keeping her down. It’s progressive Democrats, many of whom she likely hails as heroes.
If she were really concerned about fighting for freedom, she’d squash the racially charged rhetoric and join forces with the millions of Americans who are standing up against an ever expanding government that’s doing its best to hook people on welfare and steal away their rights.
Hopefully these people will wake up to reality and stop falling for the lies being told to them by slick progressive politicians and left-leaning media and start fighting against the real enemy that seeks to take away their freedom.
