What Happens When You Incite The Mob?

The FBI is investigating whether anti-government sentiment led to the hanging
death of a U.S. Census worker
near a Kentucky cemetery. A law
enforcement official told The Associated Press the word 'fed" was scrawled on
the dead man's chest.

The body of Bill Sparkman, a 51-year-old part-time
Census field worker and teacher, was found Sept. 12 in a remote patch of the
Daniel Boone National Forest in rural southeast Kentucky. The Census has
suspended door-to-door interviews in rural Clay County, where the body was
found, pending the outcome of the investigation.

Updated 11/24: As an alert reader has pointed out, police have now ruled Sparkman's death a suicide. Investigators did note that anti-government sentiment had a part in the death, if only as being a danger perceived by Sparkman.

Now police believe that Sparkman had staged his death.

Investigators said that prior to his death Bill Sparkman had talked about suicide and also about anti-government sentiment in the rural area where he worked.

This is a tragic story no matter the cause.

Because It Makes Me Happy

All the stapler scenes at once.

Maybe we're being too hard on the little Chucklehead. Webster does offer the following a a definition for "career."

3 : a field for or pursuit of consecutive progressive achievement especially in public, professional, or business life

Now we need to work around the small P "progressive" here because neither Neumann nor Walker will ever be accused of advocating Progressive policies. In this case it simply means "progressing from one to another."

As so many have pointed out, Walker doesn't really HAVE a field of consecutive achievement as a politician. He's fumbled around in it for 16 of his 42 years on the planet but "achievement" may be stretching the mark. His willingness to play games with his employee's own careers shows just how unfit for service he is.

So maybe we just give in to Young Kyle. After all, he's been to blogger camp and he must know something to be given the prestigious award as best blogger by AFP.

Walker Continues His March To The Fringes

Walker Courts Palin Endorsement
Palin last month endorsed Doug Hoffman, a third-party conservative candidate
seeking a New York congressional seat in a special election. Republican Dede
Scozzafava then dropped out of the race and last week Democrat Bill Owens won,
capturing a seat that had been held by Republicans for more than 100 years.
Nonetheless, other Republican candidates nationally have sought her

Nonetheless, indeed.

Deep Thought

You wouldn't take your dog to a vet who hated animals or trust your child to pediatrician who hated kids.

So why would you elect a Governor who hates government?

Well Armed Citizens Protect Neighborhood From Invasion By Pink Elephants

Here's one of those stories they tell us we never hear about. Two Janesville men saved their neighborhood Sunday night but an ungrateful, jack-booted Police force took away their right to have guns in their homes.
53-year-old Paul Botsford and 35-year-old Matthew Splinter have been
arrested on chages including Endgangering Safety by the Intoxicated Use of a

Hamilton Avenue. Police accuse the suspects of firing dozens of shots from a

Michael Explains RepubliCare

Michael Feldman explains it all.

4. Under RepubliCare small businesses will be empowered to band together to form multi-national conglomerates with interlocking directorates, the better to lobby against Big Government Mandates showered on employees lucky to be working at all in this Democrat economy. RepubliCare will cover 90% of the already insured.

9. Individuals already sick do not qualify for benefits since this is, after all, Health Insurance. Those seeking Sick Insurance might try Aflac.

Read the rest.

Why Don't Their Heads Explode?

When the Bachmannistas get together to rally against the government, to call as she does for Jeffersonian Revolution, to call the President evil and the Senate and House Leadership Socialists, how then do they pledge allegiance to that government with a straight face?

Are their civics so weak that the Pledge means nothing to them?
I pledge allegiance
(1) : the fidelity owed by a subject or citizen to a sovereign or government
to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic
1 a (1) : a government having a chief of state who is not a monarch and who in modern times is usually a president
for which it stands
— stand for 1 : to be a symbol for
one nation, under God, indivisible
not divisible
with Liberty
d : the positive enjoyment of various social, political, or economic rights and privileges
and Justice
b (1) : the principle or ideal of just dealing or right action (2) : conformity to this principle or ideal
for All.
2 : every member or individual component of

There is no separate Pledge for conservatives. We all live under and fight for the same flag, the same ideals, the same country. Don't march on Washington to deny Liberty and Justice for any or some and then claim you have a higher platform from which to preach. The Pledge doesn't offer special privileges to the loudest.
