The pitter patter of little jack booted feet

They came for Jessica, and we will not be silent.

Jessica Hughes of Lufkin, Texas, former Marine, mother of three, answered her cell phone in the car, coming home from the emergency room. Her 9-year-old had suffered a mild concussion, but was OK.

The caller was a female Obama volunteer who asked if Jessica would support Obama for president.

Jessica replied, "No, I don't support him. Your guy is a socialist who voted four times in the state Senate to let little babies die in hospital closets; I think you should find something better to do with your time." Then Jessica hung up.

The next day, a man and a woman in suits showed up at the door of her home, identifying themselves as members of the Secret Service.

That should get you wondering a bit. Go read the article, I'll wait.

I honestly doubt that they were real Secret Service agents, but whether they were or not the point is that the Obama campaign is embarked on a deliberate campaign of intimidation. Whether by misleading the real SS or sending lackeys to intimidate, the effect is the same. Let's not forget the radio stations threatened with litigation if they aired the NRA's ads which do nothing worse than point out how anti-gun Obama is. Can't have the chosen one's actual views get in the way of his coronation, can we?

My wife received a cold call from the Obama campaign yesterday, coincidentally. She expressed her opinion rather eloquently and included such phrases as, "No freaking way." Does that mean we could get a visit letting us we're know under suspicion?

If so, they better have SS credentials, which I'll make sure to write down the details of. If they don't, well then, they may just get provoked into a good old ass kicking.

This is still the United States, damnit. My colleagues and I didn't wear the uniform so some leg breaker from the city of dirty politics could intimidate and silence his opposition. Not now, not ever.

Damn straight.
I would have asked them for their Government ID cards. If they didn't want to show one, I would have shown them mine.
Then I would have informed them they had 60 seconds to vacate, since at that moment I would be considering them to be trespassers.

holy hell, that really happened? Wow, whats next?

Hell, it isn't even the first time it's happened.

As for what's next, there a court case on the docket that seems likely to prove Obama wasn't even born in these United States. Thus making him ineligible for the officer of President. There'll be more on that as I try to shift through the case and see what's true and what's bogus.
