Tea Partier: will angry 'tone' land you in jail?
KOMO news reports that the Washington State Patrol has launched an investigation into persons who wrote 'excessively harsh' letters to state legislators. The letters do not qualify as threats according to the WSP but nonetheless are being investigated due to "tone."
Read the brief report from KOMO here.
According to the KOMO report "Troopers said several lawmakers and aides reported having received excessively harsh letters from several people on a variety of topics this week. Among the letters was a harsh criticism of the
Senate's recent suspension of Initiative 960, a voter initiative that required a two-thirds majority in the Legislature for approval of any tax increase."
The Constitution guarantees the right "to petition the Government for redress of greivances," but perhaps that is being suspended along with I-960. So watch that tone, Tea Partier. You too may find yourself the target of an unpleasant police investigation.

1. The Statists/Government is starting to get a little Worried about having its absolute Power and Control over the Governed being questioned and threaten. There are some of the people that are Waking Up and beginning to struggle and tug at the Chains of Tyranny that they are beginning to realized they are being bound by. Yes, the highway bandits, the revenue hunters, the Washington State Patrol, the New SS of the State are being employed to ferret out those who, are beginning to exercise their Right to Complain of the Theft and Oppression of the State. This is just, further Proof, that the State does not look upon the People as their employers but, the People as servants to the State.
Things are truly geting a little wierd.
Did you see what Joe the Plumber had to say about McCain and Palin?
He said he doesn�t support Sarah Palin anymore. Why? Because she�s backing John McCain�s re-election effort. �John McCain is no public servant,� he told the room, calling the 2008 Republican nominee a career politician. Wurzelbacher said, �McCain was trying to use me. I happened to be the face of middle Americans. It was a ploy.� Wurzelbacher also told the room to lay off the extreme personal attacks on President Obama. He said people who question whether Obama was born in the United States or compare him to Hitler �belittle and set back� the conservative movement. �The birthers, the truthers � if people are trying to bunch them [with tea partiers], that would kill us. That just pushes away Democrats and independents who might come out for our cause otherwise.� He said he actually likes Obama, in some ways. �I think his ideology is un-American, but he�s one of the more honest politicians. At least he told us what he wanted to do.�
Aparently Obamas folks have got to Joe and made him sing a new tune. Nobody is safe.
