Happiness is a warm gun

Deposed Tea Party darling Joe Walsh effectively encouraged treason at a rally this week.
At his most aggressive, he told dozens of supporters to "defy and or break the law and engage in civil disobedience" if faced with federal health care law restrictions or new gun laws.

He paraphrased Thomas Jefferson in saying, "We may have to shed blood every couple hundred years to preserve our freedoms."
That would be the freedom to die with a belly full of lead or lack of preventive health care. Of course, that does not include freedom for persons possessing lady parts to make their own reproductive choices. Nor would it cover freedom to sanctify marriages between choice of life partners unapproved by conservative dictum. Which in this case should really be spelled dickdom. Or should that be dickdumb?

And this is rich:
He insisted the Tea Party makes up a majority of the so-called silent Americans and emphasized a platform based on freedom and personal responsibility manifested in four political aims: to cut taxes; limit the size, scope and influence of government; remove debt and respect the rule of law.
So says the deadbeat who failed to pay $100K in child support payments as ordered under the rule of law. Hard to believe his "silent" majority of Tea Party pals didn't manage to get him re-elected.
