"well meaning" and "misinterpreted"

"well meaning" and "misinterpreted" is how maxed out Obama supporter and director of Ohio's Department of Job and Family Services describes the raid made by the bureaucrats in her department on the private and confidential personal records of Mr. Joe Wurzelbacher. Mr. Wurzelbacher, if you recall, had the temerity to exercise his right to free speech. Unfortunately for him he exercised it to point out the fine new set of class warfare clothing The One was sporting.

A state agency has revealed that its checks of computer systems for potential information on "Joe the Plumber" were more extensive than it first acknowledged.

Helen Jones-Kelley, director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, disclosed today that computer inquiries on Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher were not restricted to a child-support system.

The agency also checked Wurzelbacher in its computer systems to determine whether he was receiving welfare assistance or owed unemployment compensation taxes, she wrote.

Now I know this is a racist position because Jones-Kelley is black and she is an Obama supporter and as FSP tells us -- so it must be right -- if you criticize a black person, especially an Obama supporter, you are de facto racist. So I'll own up to it right now and save Isaac Smith from wetting himself again. But the actions of this agency under and at the direction of a major Obama contributor are illegal and unless there is evidence that they run routine checks on every private citizen in Ohio who are mentioned in the newspapers her excuse is just laughable.

As a one-off, this particular data point is not significant. But neither, necessarily, is any particular point in a racketeering indictment. When taken together with the other similar actions of the Obama campaign it paints a sordid picture of a man and a campaign who simply don't understand America and its political system, but they do understand wielding state power for the most petty of reasons.

You argument is moot as the American People* have realized that (SAM) Joe the ( unlicensed) Plumber is just plain stupid.

* both sides of the aisle

actually, on the Obama side people hold him in contempt because he's a white working class guy, self made, not on welfare, single Dad, not a college grad and he pointed out what a lot of "smart" people should know which is two professionals (take a married couple, federal workers, towards the end of the GS-13 pay scale, or two police officers when overtime is factored in) can make $250K and they are already slammed with the AMT.

No one ever said he was an opinion leader but your rather callous attitude towards the idea of the civil liberties of people who don't agree with you merely underscores my point about the Obama campaign and its supporters.

tina louise said...

Well if he said all that , which is against his own rational self-interest he is clearly stupid. SamJoe the Plumber makes 40K $$

Moreover, if a presidential candidate waves Plumber boy around like the friggin america flag do not the Great American People have a right to know if the aforementioned flag was made in China ?

This Plumber owes back taxes--thank you FOI act__ and as a scofflaw his opinions are tainted.

In Ohio you only need a license for commercial work.

He made the statement in the interests of his nation in pointing out that Obama's risky tax scheme, to coin a phrase, is a fraud.

The fact that he owes back taxes has nothing to do with anything.

The fact that an Dem official and major Obama donor would turn the power of a state bureaucracy on one man for speaking up should be worrisome. I mean it worried you guys when the MSP were carrying out surveillance of potential domestic terrorists without any probable cause. Why is this different?

(that's a rhetorical question, don't bother to answer)

tina louise I am one of those American people you claim to represent AND YOU DON'T! Your comment is your comment and no one else's so quit being a liberal liar!

I am sick and tired of people like you trying to act like you know what others are thinking.

tina louise said...


I am so sorry to have offended you. I am glad someone is still simple enough to let a simple man dictate policy issues.

Hey stranded castaway,
Given your convoluted logic, Charlie Rangel should not be listened to (not a bad idea now that I think about it)because he is a tax scofflaw. Brilliant.

I find it quite humorous that Obama is the candidate of change and will bring Americans together. Obama will fight for the middle class and give us a tax break. But as soon as one (Joe) crosses him he is ridiculed by the candidate AND his running mate on the campaign trail. Using Obama's own words, words have meaning. Actions have MORE meaning. Obama's actions DO NOT match his words

wind river said...

tina, why such contempt for Joe? You call him "Plumber boy". Just what did he do to elicit such hate from the left other than ask a question?
I don't get it. Just like Sarah Palin. She is EVERYTHING the feminists have said a woman is or should be since the 60's. She is a mother who also hold a job outside the home. She has power. She has a great family. The only difference between her and Hillary is that Palin made it on her own whereas Clinton made it BECAUSE of her husband. Oh, and Palin is a conservative.

tina said, "This Plumber owes back taxes--thank you FOI act__ and as a scofflaw his opinions are tainted."

Factually incorrect! He has a tax lien and it is public record. NO FOI was filed or needed.

So to you anyone who outstanding tax bills or parking tickets cannot speak their mind?

And the left is supposed to be open minded and tolerant? Not you as we all see.
