38. We were discussing something similar

on another thread where someone nailed a guy's offensive "chair" to his driveway, "Four More Years" written on it. Democrats usually don't act out their frustrations and anger. That tends to happen more on the right. I'm always disturbed when I hear such stories.

Also, the right will take one isolated incident and blow it out of proportion forever, while ignoring the mean-spirited, racist crap republicans do on a regular basis.

...contempt and rage got Karl Rove. Free Republic is burning him in effigy with their online screeds.

Furthermore, the big R donors are pissed as hell at Rove. They were given assurances of a Romney win. They wasted hundreds of millions of dollars. Rove reassured them all the way that Romney will win. He went on Fox nightly with his fantasy numbers from the planet rainbow unicorn.

I think they planned all along to steal OH and FL. So Rove figured he could Di bullshit math and polls up until election night, then steal it with suppression and electronic stealing--which would bear out his fruity numbers. However, the suppression was countered by voters and Dem party leaders who countered the suppression enough to make the electronic vote stealing moot. Obama's leads were insurmountable.

The right is who is pissed at Rove. He failed so many in the Republican apparatus. Rove made promises and gave assurances to some of the most powerful people on the planet. Those assurances hinged on voter machine fraud and suppression being pulled off.

Dems will always despise Rove. We have for many years. This time he pissed off his own kind.

40. Thoreau spent a night in jail because he did not want to

pay taxes for the Mexican/American War.

I believe he wrote an Essay about Civil Disobedience and hence the name of taking action against the country and after one peak over at Wiki, my remembrance of 10th grade honors English came through....



Resistance to Civil Government (Civil Disobedience) is an essay by American transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau that was first published in 1849. In it, Thoreau argues that individuals should not permit governments to overrule or atrophy their consciences, and that they have a duty to avoid allowing such acquiescence to enable the government to make them the agents of injustice. Thoreau was motivated in part by his disgust with slavery and the Mexican–American War.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civil_Disobedience_(Thoreau)



The Civil Rights movement was inspired by this way of non-violent action to change the face of America...

He also termed the phrase, "That government is best which governs least..."

44. They're pretty angry at Boehner, Rush and Fox, too

"We were misled".

Their delusioning is epic.
Poor people with nothing are "takers", but not Romney ($300+ million), Kochs ($50 billion) or Adelson ($2+ billion).

Meanwhile, Repubs outsourced "maker" votes to countries that can't vote for Repubs.

I mean, it's just beyond my fathoming to hear them rant on "Takers and Makers".

I don't think those words means what you think they mean freeps.

33. Had it been a plastic pig, I'd be laughing my ass off. But no sane person (no Dem) could support

 

killing an animal, simply to score a political point. Nor, I would submit, would any leftist.

As I think about it, this sounds like a typical College Republican 'false flag' op. Do something odious to your own side and make it look like the other side did it. Hitler did something similar with a German-Polish border post in September, 1939 to justify the German invasion of Poland.

35. You could buy a whole pig at the Central Market, and probably a Rmoney t-shirt too!

But it had to be a wingnut to think of dumping it, and one that is MAD with Rove!
