Congressman Bob Etheridge: When asked by a young man, who may or may not be a student, if he "fully supported the Obama agenda?" Congressman Etheridge responded by grabbing and shoving the guy, demanding to know who he was. The Congressman later apologized saying:
“I have seen the video posted on several blogs. I deeply and profoundly regret my reaction and I apologize to all involved. Throughout my many years of service to the people of North Carolina, I have always tried to treat people from all viewpoints with respect. No matter how intrusive and partisan our politics can become, this does not justify a poor response. I have and I will always work to promote a civil public discourse.”Interesting that now simply asking a question would be defined as "intrusive and partisan". Also interesting? It sounds like Etheridge is blaming the young man. For being a living example of what too many years in public service will do to you 10 punches.
The NRA-The NRA recently announced its support for the DISCLOSE Act, which is a freedom of speech attacking piece of legislation. They did this in return for being exempt from this bill when it is passed. I wonder if the NRA realizes if the DISCLOSE Act passes the very same people who would write to defend the NRA and it's desire for fair and reasonable gun control legislation will no longer be able to write about it. For cutting off your nose to spite your face and completely selling out those that fight the hardest to support you 15 punches
The Los Angeles School District: The Los Angeles School Board voted last week to declare the recently passed Arizona Anti-ILLEGAL Immigration Law "unAmerican" and that the school board was "expressing outrage" and "condemned" the law. In addition, they want all of their history and civics classes to teach about the law in class in the context of "American values of unity, diversity and equal protection for all people.”, preaching "justice for all that live within our boarders" Unfortunately it seems that "justice for all that live within our borders" doesn't include the American people who are here legally. There is no fairness or justice in letting illegal invaders to continue to cross our borders at will, with no accountability. There is no fairness in allowing criminals from other countries to come here and commit heinous crimes against Americans, then extend our rights and legal system to them. There is no justice when the first thing you do in coming here is violate our laws. For indoctrinating our children and instilling in them the ability to completely ignore a law and law enforcement if they don't completely and fully agree 100 punches and stay the hell away from my children.
