Mike Connell’s Plane Crash Death [Dan Collins]
Larisa Alexandrovna had been communicating with Mr. Connell on a story about potential election skullduggery in Ohio in 2004, and he had reported being threatened. I haven’t read the story in detail yet, but I thought that it was important that at least (another) righty blog post on the subject. Read the story, which in my opinion is balanced, if perhaps a bit paranoid, and rather than snark away, bring whatever relatively objective common sense and/or expertise you can to the information as presented. The short version is here. Say what you will, I personally value investigative reporting.
Having said that, I imagine that many of us feel somewhat exposed to the chill wind of a new administration which we distrust on ideological or other grounds. Do keep in mind that many of our political opponents felt the same way during eight years of the Bush Administration, which is why the howls from gay activists are so loud over Rick Warren. As the wraith of Catherine the First says in Wuthering Heights, “Let me in! I’ve been away for so long!” Why do I mention this? Because I would not wish to see us behave as badly.
The message from Edmund Brown, seeking to overturn California’s Prop 8 results is clear, though: those silly constitutional rules don’t matter when the public abuses its powers by not making them serve the Progressive Agenda. Some matters are simply too important to entrust to the Will of the People. How such obviously extra-ordinary and -constitutional interventions are supposed to serve the interests of the gay community in the long run, though, is another question entirely. And this brings me back once again to my dismay with the Obamarat: like many social engineers, they seem to have little to no appreciation of Unintended Consequences–and many of our elected officials are shielded from consequences, generally, so no help there. Neither, of course, does the MSM, hoping, perhaps, for a bailout from the new administration. Fortunately, many of the stupid proles seem to, though. I hope.
