Make your prediction: The first dscharge of a firearm at a town hall meeting will happen in ........
..... a few hours? A few days? A few weeks? Never?

I'm thinking it could be within a week. I am virtually certain more than a few town hall attendees thus far have been armed; just not sufficiently provoked. I do, indeed, believe Democratic officials are in danger.




Think back to what was discussed right here as far back as 2006 when we started winning again. The prediction was they would begin to act like cornered animals. It didn't happen then. But the climate is far more incendiary today as they continue to lose. It is being fomented by that crazy radio fuck, Limbaugh, those other crazy radio fucks like Beck and Hannity, and by a major political party's former candidate for the second highest office in the country. It is being funded by big money, the hatred is. The flames are being fanned in a very concerted effort. Limits no longer appear to exist.



It is very dangerous out there. And as Bush and The Dick used to say ....... it just takes one.

3. By the end of this weekend
The crazies have no choice but to escalate this weekend because the MSM will lose interest if theres no escalation in violence by early next week.

Without the TV coverage they're just a bunch of loud pro business interest cranks.

6. Never.

I'll be disappointed if Obama and senators & representatives of both parties don't all come together and demonstrate some leadership, telling everyone to calm the fuck down and act like adults.

Before the weekend's over.

It was cute when it was just the Repubs shouting and looking like idiots, but this can't be allowed to escalate.

10. A small town in Texas, up to two weeks from now. People here
can be dense and slow, so I doubt they'll figure out that the secret is out for awhile.

14. It really could happen any time.
Look at the wingnuts that have already gone around the bend. The guy in Pittspurgh who killed cops. The white supremecist Birther who killed the guard at the holocaust museum. The wingnut influenced by Beck and Hannity who shot up a chruch of "liberals".

All it takes is one lone nut, and the fuckers have the nutburgers whipped up ionto a froth.

15. Add Dr. Tiller's murderer to that list
Someone convinced that guy that if Dr. Tiller was murdered the "baybee killinz" would stop.
