    Robert Gibbs’ and Andy Stern’s Purple Bracelets a Mark of Clintonesque Solidarity?
    by Kyle Olson
    I thought it was odd that Robert Gibbs was wearing a purple bracelet (and a purple tie) during his appearance on “Fox News Sunday” and CBS’ “Face The Nation.” SEIU president Andy Stern, the top visitor to the White House, wore a similar, if not the same, purple bracelet at one point, too. And in virtually every photo of Stern, he’s wearing SEIU’s purple color.
    The bracelet is kind of a signal to tell Stern that the administration has it under control and ObamaCare will be delivered. Just a few more Democrats need to be shown the Chicago way.
    Am I making too much out of nothing? Maybe. Who knows.
    I do know the presidential administration Gibbs serves is doing whatever it can to deliver health care reform to Andy Stern and SEIU.
    After all, that’s pretty much the only lot that wants it at this point. Even members of the president’s own party don’t want it, which is requiring them to twist arms in a way that would make Stern proud.
    And this reminded me of another time a signal was being sent by the White House some time back.

    SEIU vs. the Stupak 12
    By W. James Antle, III on 3.16.10 @ 2:40PM

    John Fund has an important column in the Wall Street Journal about threats by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) to back primary challengers to anti-Obamacare Democrats. At this late a date, past many primary filing deadlines, such threats may be overblown. But it is still a shot across the bow to pro-labor Democrats in blue-collar districts who are standing with Bart Stupak.

    These bracelets today have different meaning everywhere, no one is making fun of cancer.

    The Purple bracelet means any number of things from those who support Bulimia...

    Bulimia support--- meaning they are self-destructive and bulimic

    I never got the stupid wrist band thing.

    If you want to support a cause then do it why do people feel the need to advertise that they support a cause?

    Chances are the dopes wearing those stupid bracelets give neither money nor time to the cause they just want to have people think they do.

    "OOH look at me I care, see I am a caring person, I'm wearing a rubber bracelet and the more I wear the more caring, loving and good I am"

    Makes me want to
