Take 2 on "Illegal Alien" Halloween Costume

(This was posted to address respondents to my first comment on the USA Today article "'Illegal Alien' mask flap spooks retailers" http://content.usatoday.com/community/comments.aspx?id=36565726.story&p=7 )

I realized when I posted my first comment that it would have too many words and be over the heads of those folks that use any excuse to demonize people and hurl insults at Democrats, "libs," President Obama, or whomever else they fear are circling their homes in black helicopters. The scared and pathetic always need an enemy to direct their venomous delusions toward.

My take on the "Illegal Alien" Halloween Costume Controversy

(Note: This was originally posted as an admittedly long-winded comment on USA Today website article "'Illegal Alien' mask flap spooks retailers"  http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2009-10-19-halloween-mask_N.htm )

When I first saw the "Illegal Alien" costume, I took it ironically, as it apparently was intended. It was meant to play on the idiocy of the xenophobes, whose dumbassery hasn't failed to disappoint when weighing-in on this issue.

Don't use me for YOUR propaganda, Caleb Howe!

This blog post is my response to Caleb Howe, another Twitterer who used one of my "tweets", or Twitter comments as a springboard for his rabid-rightwing blog fodder. What's most disturbing is that he isn't just some anonymous twat in a basement somewhere. No, he's a professional twat.

Healthcare Reform: Letter to my U.S. Congressman -- Rep. Rick Boucher (D-VA)

I am writing on behalf of my family, to tell you of our struggles with the current healthcare system and why we are strong supporters of single-payer coverage for everyone, financed though taxes like Medicare. We believe healthcare should be treated not as a corporate commodity, but as a community necessity, like police and fire departments, transportation, and public schools, but with federal funding so that members of less affluent communities have the same access to care.

Rosa Parks Poster Torn Up At McCaskill Town Hall (VIDEO)

To all claiming not racial, just her fault for having sign, clip doesn't show footage of white people inside with signs, held up over their heads, and police overheard saying it doesn't look good to only remove black person while leaving whites alone, but they do anyway.
