Feds Bust 2nd Teabagger Terrorist in Two Days

Yesterday federal agents dragged Charles Alan Wilson, a 63-year-old angry man, off to jail for threatening the life of a United States senator. Today the G-Men struck again, this time nabbing Gregory Lee Giusti, a 48-year-old angry man, on a charge of threatening to kill the Speaker of the House. In both cases these tough-talking morons made repeated anonymous telephone calls to the offices of their victims - both of whom were powerful women - Patty Murray and Nancy Pelosi.

These good old boys are evidence of democracy and society run amok. When did we leave the land of civility and take up residence in the old west? When was respectful and intelligent debate put aside in favor of screaming, cursing, and death threats? Who made the decision that we do not have to respect election results if the election didn't go our way?

Bullies make threats, and cowardly bullies make anonymous threats. Cowardly bullies who make anonymous threats to powerful women have serious issues with their masculinity and need to be in heavy-duty therapy.

A person who threatens an elected public official in an effort to influence public policy (such as health care reform) is committing an act of domestic terrorism and needs to be treated accordingly. Guantanamo is still up and running, isn't it?

Abbie Hoffman, the Yippies, the Chicago Seven, and it was 1968.

Odd, isn't it, that when the pendulum swings the momentum drags all the energy with it, good and bad.
