Cynthia McKinney............


As usual, the rethuglicans are making hay over the McKinney incident, trying to capitalize on another's misfortune. She stated that she has been subjected to harrassment by House guards on numerous occasions and I have no reason to distrust her version of the story while on the other hand she is now being attacked by her repub colleagues and and certain un-named radio personalties. Here's a quote by the "vulgar pigboy"

"Breaking news, ladies and gentlemen: the US Capitol has been evacuated because of a power failure. It could be that somebody didn't pay the electric bill, but more than likely Cynthia McKinney's hair got stuck in a light switch and shorted everything out."

As I said, I trust her version but not any one of her critics who lie every time they open their mouths. Also, instead of commending the security guards as is being proposed by congress, they should be reprimanded for ever letting her get past them, unless they did recognize her and were indeed harrassing her. I believe the very reason she made it past them was because they did know who she was.
This incident should never have occured anyway. It is absolutely stupid that our representatives are still being identified by their little pins. Why, are they still using pins? The technology for digital fingerprint and iris scan identification has been around for years now. Why hasn't the party that is supposedly so much better at american security invested in that technology to protect our elected representatives?
And when they ridicule her, have they forgotten that she represents the tens of thousands of people that voted for her in a democratic election?

I was wondering if I was the only one who thought the whole "pin" thing was a little... ancient. Maybe this whole incident will shine some light on the obvious.

Rethuglicans. I like it!

Rethugs are too cheap to spend money on new technology to protect american citizens. They'd rather spend it on bombs and bullets so they can spread their sick empire.
