|Well, I'm not planning on going anywhere near Galveston in the foreseeable future... |
If that clown wants to send his jackbooted thugs after me, he's welcome to. It's very clear that any "threat" was that of a comeuppance by "democratic" means. To misconstrue that into a threat would take plenty of misconstruing, and if he wants to try me for that, at least everyone will see what has become of free of speech under George II.
Besides, it's hard to tell how much restraint and politeness went into that letter.
The first draft read: "Just a short note to let you know you're a fascist..."
On a brighter note, some armistice seems to have been worked out on the Bolivar Peninsula:
We can get through this; we have for many storms, although this is probably the worst, said firefighter Orbin Thompson, who along with EMS coordinator Robert Isaacks, persuaded authorities Tuesday not to force residents off the island.Who knows how long that will last.
Isaacks said the deal with the higher authorities isn't without caveats.
If we leave, we can't come back, he said.
That means no one can go out to get supplies.
We're working on a plan to address that, he said. We got gasoline today and we're pooling resources for food. We'll find a way.
Anyways, thanks to everyone who wrote.
