Default The "Horribly Hectic" Schedule of a Community Organizer

The article says it all . . .

This is Too Rich


Long story short, Palin made a sleight against community organizers whilst here at the RNC about how they don't really do any "real work" (and this I am paraphrasing). It made the rounds in some of the more leftist circles and begat a response from Wellstone.org, whose namesake is the late senator Paul Wellstone who was one of Minnesota's genuine socialist senators.

The response (located here) only confirms community organizers or the caliber of people that would participate in such a thing have NO CLUE what real work is like. The person making the post lists off her "hectic" schedule which consists of a ghastly 4 items.



I'm sure anybody who works in the real world would trounce this "to do list" with their schedule.

Regardless, this corroborates what I've more or less known to be true the entire time; for the most part (but not always) "community organizers" are people who don't want to study math or anything too hard that would get them a real job and would therefore rather do something fluffy and not-so-rigorous to make themselves feel better.

It also goes a long way in showing just how hypocritical they are when they say, "it's putting the community ahead of yourself and your ego" as the person is not doing it for anything as noble as the "community" or to effect "change" as it is inflating their own ego to make themselves feel like they have some kind of self worth. The ultimate success they have in improving the community comes a distant second to that. They don't dare go and dedicate a significant portion of their lives to learn a new technology or embark on a business venture that would employ people in the community and do something sustainable and long term to improve the lots of the members in the community. No, that would take too much time and why, they'd have to put some of their own money at risk. They'd just rather say they care and work on campaigns and initiatives to stop garbage burners from going into a neighborhood or preventing a Wal-Mart from going in across the street. Meanwhile very real and serious problems that dwarf their self-aggrandizing crusades, like unemployment jumping to 6.1%, REALLY threaten the community they so solemnly have sworn to protect.

Regardless, I have to go to the eye doctor now to move my eyes back into position because they rolled so hard when I read the web site.
