    Don't impeach him then, impie him with poo cream pies for all I care.  

    I'm not a lawyer but surely there are some lawyers around here, who can figure out what can be used to send this guy back to his beloved private sector, where he can compete in the sacred market like the rest of us working stiffs.  

    I suppose it's a good thing that all these nuts are going up to Alaska, since if they wanted to get at the rest of us, they'd either have to sneak through Canada or come in by air or sea, all of which are subject to our border defenses.  

    Maybe we should just let them have Alaska minus the mineral rights.

      American citizens and accept the fact that not everybody in this country is going to agree with you politically.

      Whole lot of stereotyping going on in this diary and frankly I think it's bullshit.  I have family in Alaska and have been there on numerous occasions.  The people I've met there are no different than the people in the lower-48.  

      Do they have some crazies in their ranks?  Yep.  Can you find examples of those same crazies in the other 49 states?  Yep.

      There are four boxes to be used in the defense of liberty: soap box, ballot box, jury box and ammo box. Use in that order.

        •  Here maybe you missed this: (6+ / 0-)
          On April 13, 2009, Schaeffer Cox orchestrated a gathering of gun-rights extremists
          As you can see, Congressman Young encouraged the assembled extremists

            This whole episode is just oozing with stochastic terrorism.

              For some kind of plot to go kill people.  

              And Young was making noises supporting his cause.  

              What part of "terrorist plot" don't you understand?

              I'm sure the prosecutor will make sure the jury understands.

              So puh-leeze don't go all sanctimoniously offended-by-association about it.  Sure, innocent until proven guilty.  And if I was on that jury I'd be as objective as a nuclear physicist looking at particles in an accelerator.  But I'm not on that jury so I have no obligation to have objectivity override my desire to see those people spend some time in modern concrete & steel architecture.
