And let’s not leave Jon Stewart out. He has a good take on this voter ID issue that has become so all-fired important. If anyone thinks it isn’t to restrict Democratic votes, I have a bridge for sale. Shades of a poll tax in some states…..
Geez. I never felt so much a part of things and yet so reviled in my life. Well, that actually isn’t true. I was in a job for many years where I often was memorialized in unflattering ways with graffiti. We don’t need to elaborate.
Now Elena and I are unintentionally part of a commando squad hated and reviled by THE County. We have even embarrassingly been linked in with everyone else as “conservative bloggers.” That last descriptor hurt the worst of all. No, we aren’t conservative and proud of it.
The strange part about all of this is we are really the only ones who aren’t conservative. I just don’t think that county business needs labels. Last Tuesday night I saw a board of 6 Republicans and 2 Democrats give a way lots and lots of money without so much as batting an eye. We were against some of this give away. We also are part of the public outcry demanding that county business be done in daylight. Surely that doesn’t wear a political label!
OAK CREEK, Wis. — The gunman who killed worshipers at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin on Sunday had become deeply embedded in the white-supremacist music scene and was well known to anti-hate watchdog groups, one of which said it had been tracking the 40-year-old for more than a decade.
In 2000, Wade Michael Page, an Army veteran, sold everything he owned aside from his motorcycle and journeyed from Colorado, eventually settling in rural North Carolina. He joined prominent “white power” rock bands. And over time, he became frustrated with what he viewed as “people’s apathetic ways” and the lack of “strict discipline in our sick society,” according to an interview he conducted with his record label.
Who are the hate-group watchers? Anti-Defense League (ADL), Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) all are hate group watchers and you do not want to get on their list. These hate group watchers do watch and they continually alert law enforcement about those who seem to target others with literature or speech.
