Speaking of tar & feathers, or at least removal from the office

he's been infesting for so long,
A top House Democrat said the attack on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) should change how members of Congress are screened at airports.

“I really believe that that is the place where we feel the most ill at ease, is going through airports,” Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.), who serves as assistant minority leader in the House, said on "Fox News Sunday."

Clyburn called for the Transportation Security Administration, which administers airport security checkpoints, to interact “a little better” with the Capitol Hill Police.

“We’ve had some incidents where TSA authorities think that congresspeople should be treated like everybody else,” he said. “Well, the fact of the matter is, we are held to a higher standard in so many other areas, and I think we need to take a hard look at exactly how the TSA interact with members of Congress.”
At least this bastard is open about it: he thinks politicians should be given special treatment, better than what the peasants get.

Oh, and that 'higher standard', do you mean the one that kept Rep. Rangel out of jail, for instance?

And they want to make it illegal for us to say things like "You miserable little canker on the ass of the nation, you should be thrown out of that office. Preferably through a window", because it makes them all poo-poo undies and all.

You're on your way to becoming just another African nation with that lot.

Jacob Zuma, has a law making it a crime for anyone to criticize the actions or person of himself and his ministers.

It's illegal to say bad stuff about Mohammed, too. Oh, wait, that's just for Muslim countries - and Sweden, and Fwance, and UK, and...

€20,000 fine here in Ireland for causing religious offence, and it's the one who feels offended that decides that a "crime" has been committed.

eff them and the camels they rode in on (and use bacon grease as lube...)
