"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

Own your words

From the Times-Tribute. Let's hope they find the prick and lock his ass up.
The U.S. Secret Service is investigating a threatening remark directed at Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama during a political event in Scranton.

The agency followed up on a report in The Times-Tribune that a member of the crowd shouted, "Kill him!" after one mention of Mr. Obama's name during a rally Tuesday for Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.
In case anyone wants to pretend this is a First Amendment issue, please read this. It's a crime to threaten Presidential candidates, punishable by up to 5 years in Federal Prison and a hefty fine.
