    interesting how you assume i'm 'right wing' for defending free speech, is the right wing the prodominent defenders of liberty in this country? god i hope not.
    Democracy is two wolves and sheep voting on what's for dinner. Liberty is a well armed sheep willing to contest the vote.

    Re: Outspoken Tucson sheriff faces recall bid

    I am not the least bit surprised about the recall petition. Personally, I dispise Palin, Beck, Limbaugh... in fact all parsian pundit hate mongers right or left... with a pink-and-purple passion. But when this supposed law enforcement professional opened his big mouth within hours of the attack, before even the slightest hint of investigation had actually begun and certainly before a warrant could be issued that discovered this very sick young man had beenplotting to kill Gifford for more than 3 freaking years, I actually did a real-life facepalm and stared at my tv in abject astonishment.

    This guy tainted the jury pool within hours of the incident by implying that the assassination attempt was (A) polically motived... it wasn't... and (B) that Republican rhetoric was to blame... it wasn't. I mean, he just handed Loughner's attorneys an entire defense strategy and set himself up as a witness for the defense. I simply could NOT believe this buffoon was for real.

    I imagine a lot of Arizonians are pretty damned miffed at him, not only for what I've already discribed but also for insulting the entire state by declaring it a hotbed of racism and discrimination. I suspect the only reason he's kept his job for so long is that nothing happened in his district previously that was noticeable enough to shine a spotlight on what an incompetent boob he really is.

    I think what the left is really upset about, has nothing to do with anything, this is one of those perfectly good crisis that they so often talk about to be used. To them it's not the shame of what happened, the shame is that they can't use it to their political advantage by somehow blaming the right. That's what they are angry about.

    The sheriff tried, his very best to weave a political spin into this, some of the people that elected him found this offensive, how many? We'll have to wait and see, but to call these people anything but concerned citizens is just plain wrong, even if they are a minority, they have every right to voice their opinion, regardless of the outcome, the people have a right to ask for a recall vote, just as regardless of the outcome it will be the right one, because that will be what the people in his district want.

    I want to tell you I hope that all Americans are as saddened and shocked as we are, and I hope that some of them or most of them are as angry as I am and as a lot of us are. And I think itís time as a country that we need to do a little soul searching, because the vitriolic rhetoric that we hear day in and day out from people the radio business and some people in the TV business, and what we see on TV and how our youngsters are being raised, that this has not become the nice United States of America that most of us grew up in, and I think itís time that we do the soul searching.

    When you look at unbalanced people--how they are--how they respond to the vitriol that comes out of certain mouths about tearing down the government--the anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on in this country is getting to be outrageous and unfortunately Arizona, I think, has become sort of the capital. We have become the mecca for prejudice and bigotry.

    Let me just say one thing, because people tend to poo-poo all this business about all the vitriol we hear inflaming the American public by people who make a living off of doing that. That may be free speech, but itís not without consequences.

    I see nothing in those comments from Sheriff Dupnik to warrant his ouster from the office he has so able served for three decades.

    Arizona has closed their border? Oh, not yet. Let me know when they do close the border. That would be quite an accomplishment.

    The statement said that between February and September last year, campus police were called five times to deal with disruptions Loughner caused in classrooms and libraries. On Sept. 29, the college said, it discovered that Loughner had posted a YouTube video he had made on the campus.
    "In the video, he claims that the College is illegal according to the U.S. Constitution, and makes other claims," the college's statement said.
    On Oct. 4, during a meeting with Loughner, his parents and college administrators, he agreed to withdraw, the college said. School officials told him he could return only if he obtained a clearance certifying that "in the opinion of a mental health professional, his presence at the College does not present a danger to himself or others." Tucson shooting suspect Jared Loughner appears to have posted bizarre messages
