Ultima Ratio Populi

Politicians are getttin' uppity gain.

First off, the (presumably, but probably not) honorable Robert Brady (D-PA) wants to make it illegal to say mean things about politicians. Notably he wants to make it a federal offense to use "language or symbols that could be perceived as threatening or inciting violence against a federal official or member of Congress"

May I just say; damned if you will!

The ability to express ourselves fully, in the most vitirolic of language, is one of the last resorts we have to remind our elected officials who they work for, and when they're doing a piss poor job. Any curtailing of that most precious of liberties, free speech, must be considered an assault upon the People of the United States. I am not happy that such protection is afforded the chief executive, and I will be damned if all our elected officials receive the same ægis.

Actually, the entire country will be damned and the descent into fascism of our freedom loving rollercoaster will slip it's brakes and there will be little left to do about it. Remind your elected officals that you oppose any such legislation. Failure to do so will result in you getting the government you deserve.

Secondly, James Clyburn (D-SC) wants special treatment when passing through TSA checkpoints.

“We’ve had some incidents where TSA authorities think that congresspeople should be treated like everybody else.... ....Well, the fact of the matter is, we are held to a higher standard in so many other areas, and I think we need to take a hard look at exactly how the TSA interact with members of Congress.”

That is an interesting opinion, please allow me to rebut.

Fuck you, you tyranical, egomaniacal, shitstick. The best part of you ran down the crack of your mother's ass and left a brown stain on the matress. How dare you think you are above the rest of us. You are a public servant you power-hungry tool, not a member of the second estate.

And finally on the hit parade of shame; Peter King (R-NY), who wants to make it "illegal to knowingly carry a gun within a 1,000 feet of certain high-profile government officials.”

This is because he knows his latin and remembers his history. Ultima Ratio Populi; the last argument of the people.
