Is there really anything surprising here?
Because, it’s only tyranny when the right does it:

I have considered writing about this video, but didn’t.
It a difficult video to watch and it makes me sad, not just for Karen Klein, the victim of several merciless school bus riding miscreants. It makes me sad for those children who clearly don’t have parents willing to raise them properly.
I deal with children like this at my children’s little league games. I deal with them, because their parents refuse to and they behave like little bullies.
A lot like this kids:
Little bastards with big mouths and no hearts.
But there is a silver lining. In the description section of that video on YouTube is a link to a site created to send Karen on a nice vacation. They hoped to raise around $5,000.
It’s currently up to $318,000:
A video of a 68-year-old school bus monitor mercilessly taunted by seventh graders became an international online rallying point against bullies Thursday, with a fund for the Rochester, N.Y., grandmother raising at least $290,000 and a deluge of people demanding harsh punishment for the boys.
Police said Karen Klein does not want her young tormenters to face criminal charges, partly because of the storm of criticism leveled at the boys from the Rochester suburb of Greece after the video went viral.
“They’ve received death threats,” Greece Police Capt. Steve Chatterton said Thursday. “Their families have been threatened. We have custody of one of their cellphones, and he had over 1,000 missed calls and 1,000 text messages threatening him. And he’s 13 years old. That must stop.”
Yeah, threatening a 13 year old with death does cross the line. Even my parents understood that, which is why they only threatened to beat me within an inch of my life.
But look at that outpouring of love. $318,000 and growing.

Awesome ending to an otherwise awful story.
Americans for Prosperity released a new ad today, just hammering Obama for his claim that the private sector is doing fine.
Check it out:
While the mainstream media is busy carrying the messaging water for the DNC, trying their best to portray Romney as an out of touch throwback to the 1950s, even go as far as to lie about his speeches, President Obama sits in his bubble, blissfully ignorant about how the rest of America is doing.
Tim, turns out, you’re a bit of a fraud:
Just a reminder of the ACTUAL RECORD:
Sgt. Timothy Michael Poe served in the Minnesota Army National Guard from Dec. 3, 2002 until May 26, 2011, and performed as a supply specialist.
His military records indicate that he served with the Minnesota National Guard in Kosovo from Oct. 10, 2007 until July 15, 2008, and was deployed to Afghanistan from July 28, 2009 to Aug. 30, 2009.
Sgt. Poe’s official military records do not indicate that he was injured by a grenade in combat while serving in Afghanistan in 2009, as he reports. The Minnesota National Guard can also confirm that he was not awarded the Purple Heart Medal for wounds sustained in combat.
Now, this guys real perfidy was taking in my friends at Defenders of Freedom, who had to put out this release last night:
Defenders of Freedom’s mission has always been to help meet the needs of our Troops. We strive to assure that our assistance is given to those who meet our giving criteria. Since being alerted about Tim Poe last week, we have been unable to substantiate his claims. We have reached out to him, but have been disappointed that he has been unwilling to talk with us. As a result, in the best interest of Defenders of Freedom, we have chosen to disassociate with him.
Defenders of Freedom thanks the men and women from the 114th Transportation Unit with the Minnesota National Guard who alerted us to the discrepancies in Tim’ story. We appreciate your service in Afghanistan and will remember the sacrifice of your fallen comrade, George Cauley.
Just remember that next time
Jonathan Turleysome random douche tells you that Stolen Valor is harmless lies that don’t hurt anyone. They hurt Defenders of Freedom, who could have allowed an actual wounded vet to take part in their activities. Need inspiration? I got you covered: This guy was hit with a rocket propelled grenade, broke his back, damaged his brain and is still kicking hind end. So tell me how bad your problems are again? Exactly. Go get some.
To the people in the terminal, God bless you for this. You help me find confidence in my fellow American.
And to the veterans, thank you. I know you are already blessed.

There is nothing about this video that’s political. It’s just too awesome not to share with you.
