Harry Truman, America’s most famous Missourian, is rolling in his grave

“If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.”  — Harry Truman.

If you can’t stand the heat, get goons to frighten your opponents — and in Missouri, this means rounding up Democratic government prosecutors and officials to threaten people with prosecution for political speech.

    From a commenter at Hot Air: Here is the website of the office of Robert P. McCulloch, with email address: http://www.stlouisco.com/pa/

    my email: I am saddened at the thought that I do not live in your jurisdiction.
    Just the thought of being prosecuted by you for exercising my Constitutional rights sends a tingle up my leg.

    Trying to be a little humorous.

    Yes, I posted on this, too. This has to be stopped. First the radio stations bombarded with line clogging Obama supporters trying to shut down a talk show, now brown shirt tactics. How progressive of them.

    Everything the Democrats said about Bush, was only ever true of the Democrat party.

    People should understand this fact up front.

    I’ve seen this elsewhere online.

    What exactly do they mean by “target?”

    Probably the same thing Stalin meant.

    I am sure Missouri has laws against this kind of thing. In California what they are doing is illegal. No elected official can use their position to materially support any candidate. They are openly campaigning for Obama. I hope the good folks of those counties in Missouri throw these bums out.

    It’s called projection, Y.

    Actually, pondering, it *is* progressive of them. Progressive, these days, means trying to actually implement a utopian ideal.

    At least in the 60’s, the progressives withdrew from society into communes and legitimately tried to make a go of it. Independently and on their own. I can respect that integrity.

    These days, they use the mechanisms of government to force all the rest of to ride their cattle train to hell. And tell us, a la Joe Biden, how patriotic it is, how patriotic it would be if we would shut up and become lambs to the slaughter.

    “No!” to suppression of free speech, I say. “No!” to excessive taxation to fund the programs that make everyone poorer. “No!” to taking billions of dollars and using them not to promote freedom, individualism and responsibility, and funneling that money into sinkholes of corruption and golden palaces and diamond encrusted mirrors above some tin-horn dictator’s bed.

    The road to the world-wide poorhouse is paved with good intentions, and just behind the poorhouse looms the world-wide gulag. Utopia at the point of a gun always ends up there.

    Point well taken, Mike. My husband, back in his self-proclaimed young and stupid days, after he came home from Vietnam, joined a commune. They were in a rural, midwestern area and remained true to self sufficient ideals, even if it meant mostly leaning only on the apple crop to sustain nourishment on season. They weren’t demanding everyone else do the same.

    Self-sufficient philosophies, honest ones at least, don’t need to force others to obey them. If you are self-sufficient then the truth will out. You will win because you were right.

    However, if your philosophy is retarded, wrong, and disastrous, and you know it at some subliminal level, then obviously you would also come to recognize that you need to use force, otherwise people might see the problems of your philosophy and choose something else. You cannot tolerate that, for that would lead to the failure of your philosophy.
