Granny's homegrown terrorism
If Jane Harman and Creepy Joe Lieberman have their way, people who speak their minds might just end up getting hauled before the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Commission (or as it's commonly known - V-RAD). BTW, all of Connecticut's representatives voted "Aye." Remember that next time you bump into "liberal" thinkers like John Larson, Rosa DeLauro or Chris Murphy.
Imagine your grandmother mouthing off at Bingo one Wednesday evening. She might say, "I'd like to poke the president with my knitting needle until he wakes up, gosh darn it." Over at the competing table, some quisling septuagenarian pulls out her cell phone and snitches. Next day the V-RAD folks are at the door, and granny is hauled in front of the commission and accused of thinking violent thoughts.
Ridiculous, if the outrageous bill hadn't passed the House with a huge majority, and didn't sit in Creepy Joe Lieberman's Senate Homeland Security Committee.
Time to call your Senator before the last shred of Constitutional freedom blows away on a gust of inside-the-beltway hot wind.
