    I'm loving these parties. The wingers are digging their hole ever deeper with each lunatic utterance they make.

    They are marginalizing the Republican party into a decades-long minority, if they don't kill it outright.

    Remember, Rush, as much as they love him, is loathed in this country by nearly everyone else. His approval ratings match Cheney's.

    Please, give them louder mics!

    No, I'm not worried about a violent revolution. There are far too few of them, they're not persuasive, and they don't have the guts. These people are toddlers throwing a temper tantrum because they lost.

    We will continue to get isolated winger violence though, I'm sure.

    May your entire existence be one sensuous, frolic-filled experience lived in defiance of care!

      you can love the negative attention that you think someone deserves, but they could be feeding on it like vinegar and eventually they're going to say they're not going to put up with the taste anymore -

      ...and if they come to the conclusion "Well, I've got a reputation as a bad/silly/strange/outcast person now, I might as well say 'fuckit' and get my money's worth for all the shit I'm taking...

      And that's how otherwise anonymous person become instantly famous for all the worst reasons.

      I am not afraid of these people at all, I wouldn't stoke their fear though, or even mock them to their face..  

      As for this nation being safe, it 100% safe, the guards that gaurd this nation are fully aware and awake, thank goodness.

        time when the entire force is called out?

        Let's see here...in the Viet Nam protests, the state governors called out the National Guard.

        Where is the balance of the national guard and all their equipment right now?

        Remember? So Rummy could get Shinseki canned and still claim they could run the war in Iraq with a slimmed down military, do it all without having to start a draft?

        Then the lying bastard went up there and told a fellow soldier "you go to war with the army you have, not the army  you want??"

        Just something to consider.

        I can't find the link right now, but I think it was Governor of Louisiana, (napolitano?) who after Katrina pointed out that her own state's national guard was gone when she wanted to call them out.

      This isn't a "beginning," this is how it ends for them. Distilled down to the crazy dregs.

      Every day's another chance to stick it to The Man. - dls.

        Keep this in mind -

        For those RW Christians who believe wholeheartedly in the "end of days" eschatology crap, realize that in the Revelation sequence, the world is destroyed before Jesus comes back and the final judgment and God creates utopia for all eternity.

        in other words - when it looks like the worst we've ever seen is actually unfolding before our eyes, these clowns will think that's evidence of the greatest thing they could ever hope for  - the thing that they've been waiting for all their lives -

        do you think they're going to scream "STOP!" or

        "MORE GASOLINE!
        GET MORE GASOLINE!"

        •  The organized hate groups are being monitored (0+ / 0-)

          That's what the press release was about yesterday, that right-wing groups pose the most serious internal threat.

          But those are already existing groups like the Aryan Nation and other white supremacist groups. The gov't has been watching them for decades. In fact, that study yesterday was requested by the Bush administration.

          The teabag crowd are mostly racists, sure, but they're not the Aryan Nation.

          Isolated violence, like the guy who killed the policemen in Pittsburgh, or the O'Reilly fan who killed the people at the church, that kind of thing I expect will continue.

          But armed revolution? From these clowns? Nah.

          May your entire existence be one sensuous, frolic-filled experience lived in defiance of care!
