So a few days ago a couple friends mentioned this little gem.

And tonight I am reading and found this.

Lucky? Unlucky?

Or just me?

Something tells me these wackjob groups have pretty much always been around; they're probably just making a little more noise than usual lately because of the Scary Black Man in the White House.

Notice these punk kids make a point of only going after "fringe" groups that are stereotypically characterized as touchy-feely and pacifistic --i.e., easy to intimidate. Why the hell don't some of these groups do the Texas thing and start openly carrying some firepower on their hips? There'd be sudden surge of extremely polite and neighborly behavior, believe me. Near as I can figure this dissolved community of swingers did nothing but go cry on their blogs about it.

A passel of "short-skirt condemners" have been sighted here in Hanover, too --stirred up some backlash of angry editorials but again, little action but a lot of petulant Tweets and blog posts. Someone ever tries that shit with my daughter they're gonna find themselves with a seriously pissed-off Sig Sauer-carrying Dad all up in their grille.

Truly --arm up, folks. Don't lie back and be victims to these hooligans. Get right back in THEIR face and demand respect, then pat your sidearm for emphasis. They'll scamper away and look for their fun elsewhere --last thing a bully wants is prey that stands its ground.

Oh dear... That first one is actually more distressing, to my mind, partly because I know several women who've been raped (one of them as a young child), and partly because it's the sort of thing you're less likely to see any public resistance form against.
Not to bring you down, but we're just recovering from a visit from Fred Phelps. Due to previous appointments and a birthday we avoided the whole thing, but our Universalist Unitarian church took part in the counter protest.
