Havana, Wisconsin

Leftists have decided to try to intimidate the families of lawmakers:

In Wisconsin, the schoolteachers and other "public employee" beauties are going to the homes of Republican lawmakers, screaming, denouncing, etc. The situation has gotten very bad. We know where you live. Yesterday, I had a talk with Sen. Randy Hopper, recorded here. Republican lawmakers have received threats, and credible ones: threats to their physical well-being. They are not disclosing their movements, whether they are sleeping in their own homes. They are working with law enforcement on how best to protect themselves and their families.

If we allow acts of intimidation and threats of violence to influence public policy, we cease to be a Republic of laws, and are far closer to civil unrest than I would have had any reason to believe.

I knew this "civility" thing as ordered by Dear Reader applied only to the Right.

Actually, Madison was pretty universally known as Berkeley-Midwest when I as a student there. It didn't matter whether you thought that was a good thing or not. Having just returned from Vietnam, I didn't.

Imagine the teacher of your children going to a persons home in order to intimidate the children.

Simply amazing. And our vile clown freak of president is condoning and encouraging this type of behavior. We live in a thugocracy. God help us until we can vote these despicable subhumans out of office in 2012.

you gotta be either mighty dumb or mighty brave to go to someone's house and threaten them...

given the general trend of test scores for schools these days, i'm guessing "dumb".

"Imagine the teacher of your children going to a persons home in order to intimidate the children."

Unfortunately I don't need to imagine it, I can watch it in real time. These parasites need a time out.
