God Must Have A Sense Of Humor

–noun, plural -nies.
Indianapolis - Lines were long and tempers flared Wednesday not to vote but to get paid for canvassing for Barack Obama. Several hundred people are still waiting to get their pay for last-minute campaigning. Police were called to the Obama campaign office on North Meridian Street downtown to control the crowd.

The line was long and the crowd was angry at times.

"I want my money today! It's my money. I want it right now!" yelled one former campaign worker. . .

Eventually people did start getting paid, but some said they were missing hours and told to fill in paperwork making their claim and that eventually they would get a check in the mail . . .

"It should have been $480. It's $230," said Imani Sankofa.

"They gave us $10 an hour. So we added it. I added up all the hours so it was supposed to be at least $120. All I get is $90," said Charles Martin.

"I worked nine hours a day for 4 days and got paid half of what I should have earned," said Randall Waldon.

Some people weren't satisfied with filling out a claim form for money they felt was still due to them. . .

Well, it begins.

The liberal illuminati want to confiscate our money and our guns. This is starting to sound so familiar. I think it has something to do with the British coming, or something like that.

Tea in what harbor?

The Federal government does have a nasty habit of oppressing us, far more than Parliament in London ever did, but do Americans really care? I guess we got our answer last Tuesday.
