Roll Call Magazine:

House Orders Up Three Elite Jets
August 5, 2009
By Paul Singer
Roll Call Staff

Last year, lawmakers excoriated the CEOs of the Big Three automakers for traveling to Washington, D.C., by private jet to attend a hearing about a possible bailout of their companies.

But apparently Congress is not philosophically averse to private air travel: At the end of July, the House approved nearly $200 million for the Air Force to buy three elite Gulfstream jets for ferrying top government officials and Members of Congress.

The Air Force had asked for one Gulfstream 550 jet (price tag: about $65 million) as part of an ongoing upgrade of its passenger air service.

But the House Appropriations Committee, at its own initiative, added to the 2010 Defense appropriations bill another $132 million for two more airplanes and specified that they be assigned to the D.C.-area units that carry Members of Congress, military brass and top government officials.

Because the Appropriations Committee viewed the additional aircraft as an expansion of an existing Defense Department program, it did not treat the money for two more planes as an earmark, and the legislation does not disclose which Member had requested the additional money.

Via Brietbart News:

VIDEO:  SEIU Union Thugs Attack Black Conservative Protestor. Police Arrest Them.

[Notice the two guys in SEIU shirts with the “pro health care” message on front – Editor]

St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Kenneth Gladney, 38, a conservative activist from St. Louis, said he was attacked by some of those arrested as he handed out yellow flags with “Don’t tread on me” printed on them.

He spoke to the Post-Dispatch from the emergency room at St. John’s Mercy Medical Center, where he said he was awaiting treatment for injuries to his knee, back, elbow, shoulder and face. Gladney, who is black, said one of his attackers, also a black man, used a racial slur against him before the attack.

More Video Here LINK.

Mini-UPDATE: Gladney and his attorney were on the Neil Cavuto Show. The three men and the large woman in SEIU t-shirts all kicked and hit Gladney. Gladney is taking legal action against the SEIU and the four individuals identified.

UPDATE: – Michelle Malkin has more news and video links of more union thuggery at town halls – LINK.  Good work Michelle!

There it is, do not speak to people about actual policy points, interupt, yell and chant mindless slogans. Is that the Democrats looking out for you??

UPDATE III: Greta Van Susteren mocks the claim by the DNC that these old folks showing up are all paid by someone to be there. On the other hand ACORN and SEIU people ARE indeed paid for their activities.

UPDATE IV: Man who initiated attack on ken Gladney in the video above is an SEIU member named Elston McCowen

McCowen’s resume Via CNM:
