The ‘New Age’ of Civility

Call me a skeptic, but somehow I saw this coming. A litany of death threats and other calls for violence and harm have started to make its way into the environs of Wisconsin amidst the aftershocks of the budget repair bill that passed Wednesday night in the Wisconsin state legislature. The State Department of Justice is investigating this specific threat (read entire e-mail in the above link). Here's an excerpt from the e-mailed threat: Please put your things in order because you will be killed and your familes  (sic) will also be killed due to your actions in the last 8 weeks. Please explain to them that this is because if we get rid of you and your families then it will save the rights of 300,000 people and also be able to close the deficit that you have created. I hope you have a good time in hell. Read below for more information on possible scenarios in which you will die. Meanwhile, Read more

They Didn’t Heed the Warning NOW You Must

We warned the leaders that their high handed action on the Health Care Law would push the nation closer to the boiling point. They did not listen so you must. This nation must not be allowed to devolve into lawlessness. We will remember in November not threaten people. The Viet Nam peace movement grew from a movement of students and peace activists into one which had the sympathy of a majority of the American people. In 1968, it had pushed out of contention a sitting President in his own party. A President who had won 4 years earlier with 61% of the popular vote and 44 states. It had gained the elite opinion and even luminary figures such as Senator Bobbie Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. along with countless celebrities joined the cause. Everything was moving in its direction. Vice President Nixon was campaigning on a secret plan to end the war. Bobbie Kennedy was on the Read more

The UN Assault on Free Speech

Islam has contributed a great deal to the world, but freedom of speech is not one of those contributions. Would that statement be banned under the UN treaty being considered? Why are Clinton and Obama betraying us to the hardline Muslims? The U. S. is rejecting the UN resolution on religious defamation. That sounds good, but then they worked with the Tyrannical dictatorship in a compromise. I will let Mr. Thomas Mitchell explain the concerns of freedom lovers around the world. Michael Posner -- the assistant U.S. secretary of state for human rights, democracy and labor -- worked with Egypt to draft compromise language for the U.N. resolution that condemns religion-oriented harassment and discrimination, making a fragile distinction from defamation. That compromise language "expresses its concern that incidents of racial and religious intolerance, discrimination and related violence, as Read more

Polly Wanna Participate Now?

The Sussex Countian is reporting that Polly Adams has decided to participate in the Sussex League of Women Voter's forum on July 30th at the County Council Chambers on the circle in Georgetown: Democratic State Senate candidate Polly Adams Mervine confirmed on Monday that she will take part in a Thursday candidate’s forum sponsored by the League of Women Voters.... “Thursday will be a very tough day. Dad was the rock of our family and the fair was a big part of his life,” Mervine said. “But so was serving the people of the 19th District and I think he’d want me at this forum explaining how I plan to carry on that commitment to service.” I guess her Dad wouldn't have wanted her at the Crossroads Community Church forum in her hometown of Bridgeville in between Bridgeville and Georgetown. Meanwhile another blog is reporting that Sweet Polly Purebred had a little...um...issue...at Read more

Exposing Hate – One Fraudulent Fool At A Time

First, big h/t to Pandora for including this on her post, pondering if hate talk can lead to murder (YES, IT CAN). Rev. Wiley Drake, pastor of the First Southern Baptist Church of Buena Park, Calif., is praying for the death of the president. It is important to note that the Southern Baptist Convention has quickly and emphatically disavowed Drake's comments as representing them and countered them with scripture that the mainstream of the convention recognizes as a commitment to praying for the well-being of the president. Read on, in this link to the Washington Post (my source of the paraphrasing above), as there is more to the story, but nothing good about this fool. It appears this "reverend" is serving his own feelings and not that of what he was given a charge. Also, make no mistake, this is hate-inspired (my best guess is it's political hate, but still hate) and probably fear-inspired. Read more
