Of course I’ll do what needs to be done, and I’m a Vet, so I’ve done more than most. ;)
It’s just INFURIATING that our Elected Officials on the ‘R’ side are such a bunch of...FILL IN THE BLANK...!
They need to go.
Not if you - metaphorically - bring a knife to a knife fight, a gun to a gun fight.
It is about what is appropriate and effective - like Bruce Lee using real moves instead of sterile kata.
Though he is no conservative, the author, Stephen R. Donaldson penned an excellent expression of this: The Oath of Peace.
In essence, it states that one is justified in using whatever level of force is necessary to cope with evil, as evil escalates in potency and violence.
Thinking skills and reading skills are surely lacking here at free republic but the drive by posting is as strong as ever.
I merely brought attention to the dangers of using the opponents tactics. As I have stated, a gun is dangerous too, that mean be aware in its danger and how you use it.
You are 100% correct. I don’t understand how a person can lose their rights to not be libeled just because they pay a fee and file for office. I would think it would also be an equal justice under the law issue as well. There again, it would take a huge amount of resources to push this forward.
Unfortunately, I think this political dichotomy is also affected by the intrinsic values and motivations of the different political persuasions. Socialists by their nature want to be in a crowd working toward a common goal. If a socialist leader asks their followers to call legislators or boycott a business, the group-think kicks in and they ALL want to do it -— high numbers will get involved to make things happen. Their activism flows organically from their politics.
Capitalists, on the other hand, tend to work independently and with a profit motive. We are more philanthropic than activist. If you want to do politics, they are glad to help you out for a price. You need folks to make calls to legislators, they will be glad to tell you how to set up and work a phone bank, and then send you to the person who will help you hire the people you need. Our activism costs us, more often than not.
Thanks for the ping!
Sue the Media,,,
to a fence post.
But thanks,you got a point.
Fact is the “brainwashed”
Like the Mud they wallow in.
“Idiocracy” is our direction and
Judgement is our Fate.
If you read the New York Times Co v. Sullivan case, you will get the picture. It makes good First Amendment sense provided that the big media outlets are divided ideologically in roughly the same way that the voting public is. And nothing in the Sullivan case suggested anything else; the question simply was not considered. It was not in the nature of the case to bring anything of the sort up. At all.it would take a huge amount of resources to push this forward.
It is therefore necessary to bring to SCOTUS a case which points out that a rule which makes it equally difficult for Democrats and Republicans to sue for libel is balanced between Democrats and Republicans in exactly the same sense that a law against sleeping under bridges applies to rich and poor alike. Republicans get libeled as a matter of course - and Democrats dont get libeled. At all.
If every Republican agreed with the strategy, and backed it with a little dough (and had the hope of participating in any settlement obtained), you would think that the money could be raised. But I guess Im not a particularly persuasive writer . . .
Good post. I couldn’t agree more. But, do you think such a case would survive summary judgment and thus be allowed to go to trial?
I think it “could” in a Texas Court with the right judge.
Yup. It is as if you are seen as the out of town gunslinger whom they hope will clean up the joint by taking on the local nogoodniks who run things.
I am the world’s most non-confrontative person. So glad I wasn’t there.
I know he would have made sure the guy threw the first punch before he decked him. He’s 5’11, 180 and in the sort of shape you get from walking a lot and splitting wood, but he has some vulnerabilities, so he intended to put the guy down fast in self-defense.
Yeah, he’s clever like that.
“...How do you think we won WWI and WWII? ...”
We killed the people who were trying to kill us.
Guys like my old man and his brothers and cousins left their homes, went to basic training, and went overseas and said “the road home goes through Berlin (twice) and Tokyo...”
And they meant it.
So they did it.
And one of those enemies refused to surrender, we nuked two of their cities and burned the other cities to the ground with General Curtiss LeMay’s “Special Airborne Cocktails”.
And the war ended. We won. Nothing less is acceptable.
Look at the Tucker Carleson home riot incident,have they arrested anyone yet?
He’s been different, and slamming POTUS, ever since.
Someone needs to do something about this ‘POLITICAL PERSECUTION’ of our President by the DOJ, federal prosecutors, Demorats, and all the others ‘investigating ‘everything personal in his and his families life.. they’re also going after everyone associated in any way from business to friendships, pundits, and even his late fathers affairs....
