The Last Straw -
Carl Worden Makes His Vote Official
Carl F. Worden

That's it, I've had it.

What I do know is that any party that would find the words, "Protect Our
Civil Liberties" offensive or even threatening, is a party I won't
belong to anymore.

That was the last straw.


There should be more people of conscience like Carl Worden, and perhaps
there will be on Nov. 2.

Mr. Worden is correct that their shirts said "Protect Our Civil Liberties",
but he left out the "reason" the three women were ejected from the Bush
rally. A volunteer felt those four words are "obscene"!

Voorhies said the three made it through all three checkpoints and assured
volunteers who questioned them that they would not disrupt the event. But
when Voorhies was on her way to the bathroom, she was stopped by a volunteer
who told her she wasn't welcome.

She said this volunteer pointed to her shirt and said it was "obscene."

Jackson County Republican Chairman Bryan Platt said he didn't see the
incident but said the volunteer was trying to make a judgment about whether
the women would be disruptive.

"It basically just triggered his alarm," Platt said of the volunteer, whom
he did not name, "and we'll stand behind that. I wish (the women) would have
just dressed in a way that was without that kind of intent to incite any
kind of incident."

I've seen a picture of the three middle-aged school teachers. Their white
t-shirts all had "Protect Our Civil Liberties" printed on them, and one had
the U.S. flag in addition to the words. There was nothing "obscene" about
the shirts.

Anybody attending a Bush rally and expressing a sentiment that civil liberties
should be protected obviously did not fit in with the general sentiment of the
crowd.

Because we were attacked on September 11, 2001, we should be willing to
surrender our civil liberties to the federal government.
This will make it much easier for the fedgov to track down terrorists here in
the US, as well as silence or harras political opposition.

Anybody who is a loyal, patriotic, lockstep American perfectly conforming to
Bush's wishes would never say anything smacking of the tiniest bit of dissent,
anyway, so what really good, loyal, patriotic, lockstep American needs all
those silly freedoms in the Bill of Rights? All we need is the 2nd Amendment,
and to heck with the rest.

Go to the link and read the newspaper story.

Unfortunately we are hearing this more and more about the Bush rallies.
