ANTI-THREAT LAW? YOU'RE KIDDING?: Apparently, Representative Robert Brady, a Democrat from Pennsylvania, plans to introduce a law that The Hill says "would make it a federal crime to use language or symbols that could be perceived as threatening or inciting violence against a federal official or member of Congress." It would seem that the rhetorical pendulum has swing to the other side. If Congress were to pass this self-protection legislation, it would effectively make them stand about the people. I understand the President is protected by a similar law, but can we really afford to offer presidential-like protection to hundreds of Americans. And, who decides the criteria for breaking the law. It's time we relax, take a deep breath and begin to act with reason and speak with responsibility. We shouldn't need a law to help us accomplish that feat.
