The Obamacare Fallout Just Keeps Coming, GOP Psychos on a Full Rage
I'm still not expressing much of an opinion on Obamacare because there are important battles and those are distinct from the same-old-same-old political bitchfighting that's been going down in DC for at least as long as I've been alive and then some. I remind you I'm a Reagan baby; in fact, I was just cornered on the streets of San Francisco in a "Reagan for President" tshirt (thanks, Being Conservative!) and though I'm not delusional enough to think Ronald Reagan was the savior of humanity, the irony is not lost on my hipster ass. Random passersby in SF perhaps but never yours truly.
I was in diapers when the guy was around and by the time he left office, I hadn't even skipped 3rd grade yet. So don't take what I feel without a grain of salt or 20. Please.
Point being, threats are lame. Calling people baby-killers is lame. Freaking out over a political circus that one cannot possibly control is beyond lame.
But what can I do? Sit here complaining some more and stick to my top-secret End the Fed sticker campaigns.
The Detroit News:
The FBI and the U.S. Capitol Police are investigating threats to at least 10 Democratic lawmakers, including Rep. Bart Stupak, believed to be linked to the passage of the controversial health care legislation.
In the run-up to Sunday's historic vote in the House on the health care bill, bricks have been hurled through Democrats' windows, a propane line was cut at the home of a congressman's brother, and threatening voice mails and faxes have been sent to some Democratic lawmakers.
Stupak, D-Menominee, has received threatening phone calls and faxes, including one drawing of a noose on a platform with the wording "Bart (SS) Stupak." A man left a voice mail calling him "baby killer" and saying he hoped Stupak dies of cancer. On another voice mail, a woman says, "There are millions of people across the country who wish you ill."
You guys are idiots. Seriously. Get a hobby.
Paris is burning, anyone got a light?
I'm mad as hell and not going to take it anymore either but what the fuck good do I do the movement sitting in a jail cell somewhere over charges that I threatened the life of ________ (insert raging liberal Congressional asshat here) ?!
