    Re: Death Threats Against Al Green

    Why would anyone threaten Al Green?.


    His rendition of "Love and Happiness" is awesome.
    Thank you

    Al Green happens to be my congressman. When he had his town hall meeting here in Houston, I had a chance to get up and speak. There were so many people there that everybody had to draw numbers. Lucky for me, my number was drawn. Anyways, I asked how this was going to be funded, and expressed my concern that this was going to run up massive deficits. His answer was to evade my point, and talk about how health care was the right of every American.

    OK, at least I tried to get an answer from Al Green, but make no mistake about it - I condemn anyone who would make threats. This is as unamerican as you can get. Those who think that making threats against an elected official ought to move to a nation more conducive to their philosophy - Like the Soviet Union.... Oops, thats, right, it doesn't exist any more. Well then, they can try Iran. I know, I know, Islamic and all that, but they are not so different from these Bozos are they? They only differences between those who are making the death threats and Islamic jihadists are:

    1) Different religions - Islamic vs. either Christian or Atheist, or whatever other religion or philosophy floats peoples' boats here in America.

    2) We have laws that keep people like this in check. Iran has laws that encourage violence and the murder of its citizens. Perhaps, if our Bozos merely converted to Islam, the Iranian government might be willing to put them to work doing what they only wish they could do here, but are too cowardly to do so. Then they would be perfectly happy.

    Sorry if this is a bit over the top, but I rank those who make death threats right up there with the rest of the terrorist scumbags. Again, the only things stopping them are good police enforcement, a decent system of government, the 99.9% of Americans who find their actions reprehensible, and the inherent cowardice of these Bozos. Want to derail health care? Do it legally.

    Thank God, there are only a few pathetic punks like these out there, but in our present political climate, those few cockroaches are now coming out of the woodwork. A can of Raid* right now would do nicely.

    * Serious prison time for those caught making death threats.

    I don't have a link yet, since this was just on the news, but I will supply one as soon as I can.
    Wait...Al Green...the politician, not Al green the musician? Whew!!! For a minute there I was pissed!!!

    Seriously...We have some pretty modern technologies. Shouldnt take to much to find ALL of these people that are making threats...BOTH SIDES...and lock their ass away in a federal bend em over the sink prison...

    You want to live in a better society? You want community involvement? A community organizer is an important tool for that.
    I'm just going to go ahead and call bull**** on that. ACORN, Greenpeace, etc. are all borderline criminals, and they offer nothing to myself or anyone else looking to actually make life and community better.

    Okay, examples we can discuss? What do they specifically do that is beneficial? Keep in mind by beneficial I mean to society, not something that might screw me over to benefit someone else, or other things that are of questionable benefit and that others may not provide.

    They often make sure that communities are organized and ready to stand up for themselves when a problem arise. An example: there's a poor part of town in my city where a company is trying to buy everyone's mineral rights under their houses. The reason for this is because under this neighborhood there used to be a natural gas cavern that was pumped dry. This company wants to take the dangerous step of pumping natural gas back into this natural formation, even though there's fears that it could potentially leak or explode. This is the kind of issue that a community organizer would try to take on. To say nothing of tricky legal situations, like when a landlord is doing potentially illegal things but the tenant doesn't know what to do about it.

    False, they lobby for power like anyone else, they use people much like any other lobby group. Businesses and private citizens who provide goods and services make things better for people, because whoever provides the best product at the most competitive price wins, meaning we all do.
    But there's also times when companies are doing things that are unethical and possibly dangerous, and we need to be ready for those. Or when a community is too disorganized to fight against a new government law that will harm the community (like a zoning law.) Those times you need someone to organize a community to fight back.

    I'm just going to go ahead and call bull**** on that. ACORN, Greenpeace, etc. are all borderline criminals, and they offer nothing to myself or anyone else looking to actually make life and community better.
    Greenpeace is more of an ecological protest group than a community activist group, and ACORN, I never looked that closely into their alleged scandals. I do think that you have very little idea what really helps a low-income community become better.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Ah, so ignoring property rights, fostering unnatural fears about a very rare statistical occurance, standing in the way of a perfectly legit business practice. So in other words, not a damn thing good here. There are legitimate authorities for this, not a bunch of scumbag "community organizers".

    "We", haha, no. Most people don't need or want that trash in their cities, and btw zoning law has a specific process, and "commuity organizers" are not part of that or even necessary.

    I don't see enough of a difference between protest groups and community organizers, they are both ****. And again, I have seen nothing worthwhile or positive about community organizers from any of the above, nothing that legitimate authorities could not handle.

    This is an unprecedented act, storing natural gas under a dense urban area in natural formations. The company was coming in right before christmas and trying to buy property rights without giving sufficient information about the dangers of what they were doing. It's not illegal, but it is certainly a hazard. You know nothing about the case, yet here you are making judgements about it.


    "We", haha, no.
    You don't consider yourself part of a community or neighborhood?

    Most people don't need or want that trash in their cities, and btw zoning law has a specific process, and "commuity organizers" are not part of that or even necessary. [/quote]
    Sometimes there needs to be a united response by the people being effected. You also have to keep in mind that many legal situations are fairly complicated, and sometimes need professional advice on how they should be handled, such as zoning laws. Another important things an organizer might do is simply try to get everyone in the neighborhood in communication and talking with one another, fostering an organization and inter connectivity in the neighborhood so they themselves can deal with any issues that may plague the area.



    I don't see enough of a difference between protest groups and community organizers, they are both ****. And again, I have seen nothing worthwhile or positive about community organizers from any of the above, nothing that legitimate authorities could not handle.
    That is because there are none so blind as those who refuse to see. Where are you even getting your information about what a community organizer does?

    No, it isn't. They are doing that in old salt domes not too far from the city I am in, and those things are less stable than the aquifers you are talking about, so far no major issues.
    The company was coming in right before christmas and trying to buy property rights without giving sufficient information about the dangers of what they were doing.
    That's called fraud and unfair business practices, we have legitimate people to deal with that, we don't need anyone not authorized to deal with things.
    It's not illegal, but it is certainly a hazard. You know nothing about the case, yet here you are making judgements about it.
    From everything so far, it's none of these "community organizers" business, they are acting as a defacto authority without any legitimate power.


    You don't consider yourself part of a community or neighborhood?
    Sure, and we have elected officials and everything, we even have "community organizers" that make everything a pain in the ass, **** them and I hope they suffer.
