Crossing The Line

Thursday, Mar. 25, 2010 3:37 AM

Citing two 'minor provisions' that violate budget rules, House Republicans have been successful in forcing yet another vote on the healthcare bill.

In the meantime, let's take a moment to consider the right-to-life types (and probable 'good Christians') who have been calling Rep. Bart Stupak to express their displeasure with his vote.

And the calls to Congressman Stupak aren't even the worst of it.

"Activists" seeking to express their 'opinion' of Rep. Tom Perriello (D-Virginia) cut a propane gas line that they thought was the Congressman's home. It wasn't; it was the home of Perriello's brother. The FBI is investigating.

The tea party type who posted the address shrugged it off as 'collateral damage.'

Let's be honest for a moment, folks. This is not activism, this is terrorism - the threat/use of violence
to affect political discourse and/or policy. (I don't have a warm fuzzy spot for the yahoos who set trash cans on fire and trash police cars at 'liberal' protests, either.) We have hundreds of prisoners deemed too dangerous to release or grant trials to in criminal court because they happened to be 'associated' with a terrorist organization. But not one of them can be said to have gone after the family of a United States Congressman over disagreement on domestic policy.

Hmm. I wonder how all these 'patriotic Christians' will feel about the warrantless wiretaps and sneak-and-peek searches allowed under the PATRIOT Act now that they're the focus?
