Being a Complete Piece of Crap is Not a First Amendment Right

I'm disgusted and appalled by the behavior of "Tea Party" demonstrators, spitting and name calling toward members of Congress.

It sickens me. Seriously. And what is even more disgusting than the inability for foul thinking loud mouths to control their mob-like, pathetic, animal behavior is the fact that some knuckleheads are like, "What? It's their right."

Are you kidding me? Since when is it the right of anyone to incite violence or make someone feel threatened?

And you know, this isn't a judgment call. The words being used are negative, hands down. You scream these words at someone as terms of endearment. You don't name your children those words for a reason. And spitting on someone is not a compliment in any circumstance, as far as I know. (In fact, people have died for spitting at someone.)

It doesn't matter someone believes politically. A person may think health reform sucks, might hate our President, and believe that everything going wrong in our country right is the fault of the current administration. We may believe whatever we like. That is our right.

But to call people filthy names? To scream "You lie" at our President as he addressed Congress? What in the Hell?

Organize. Protest respectfully. Use that energy to accomplish something. But if you can't keep your spit in your mouth, stay home.

Note: This rant has nothing to do with my political leanings. I thought it was incredibly disrespectful and inappropriate when the Iraqui journalist threw his shoe at President Bush. I did not have a blog then.
