The comments are amazing. I love seeing a full meltdown from politicians. What I wonder in these cases is if there's a young, 20-something telling her, "please don't post in the comments it cant make anything better," and her responding with something like, "no, I'm going to stick up for my rights and values, the people will support me."

Then she gets the validation from the 3 people as dumb as her in the comments that are likely personal friends of hers that she has asked to support her in the comments while everyone else rips her hypocrisy to pieces.

Yes, no self respecting Republican President would be caught dead in the White House, or in Camp David, or with the Secret Service, or any of the vehicles provided to the office to utilize in order to protect the POTUS.  Nope, they just build a cabin in the woods with their bare hands and Jesus, armed to the teeth with all manner of firearms.  They drive the same truck they bought to haul that lumber and by golly if they have to go abroad, they'll swim the atlantic themselves.

If the 911 operator was gay, could he have just hung up on her?
 
2014-02-28 04:07:13 PM  
Oh, FFS... Why didn't she call the paper first to complain about her address being put in the article?  Then if the paper told her to go pound sand, call the police (the non-emergency number, you dumb bint, not the one for folks that need immediate police/medical/fire assistance).

The fact that she JUST HAD TO respond to the comments in TFA tells me that she's a full-blown attention whore.

/You know she's reading the comments here too--can't wait to see what her Fark handle will be when she starts replying to us.  Anybody have any suggestions for her?

I'm curious who you're referring to, hoss. Which Democrat is it that "demands" such things? Certainly, you're too smart to be referring to an elected official at the level where their status includes such protections no matter which party they're affiliated with. Right?

Bloody William: meat0918: How does an elected official not know their address is public record?

Better question, how does an elected official reach the conclusion, "I better call 911" when dealing with a published newspaper article? Even if you think it's a legitimate and grievous threat against you, why would you call a line for immediate emergency response rather than going to the police, lodging a formal complaint, requesting security in person, or otherwise treating the threat like a non-specific, non-immediate threat? If someone makes a death threat against you and they're not on the phone or inside the house, you go TO the police to file a report and get protection. You don't dial 911 because of a nasty note.


I dunno, I get the impression a lot of people think the 911 is "number to call for the police" rather than being "number to call during an emergency". I guess more needs to be done to advertise the alternatives (311 in the US I believe, although not sure that is universal, or 101 in the mainland UK) and when they are appropriate.

I, for one am glad this vapid twunt is getting this sort of attention. Her fellow members of the Board of Supervisors bent over backwards in her first term to help her out. They gave her a lot of extra road money for several projects in her district. As a thank you, she protested any spending the county proposed in other districts, went on the radio to rip the county administrator a new one when possible and then as a slap in the face to the taxpayers, she spent tax money lavishly on herself and her staff.

Thank you Fark!!

He's not as bad as that one guy, the, uh, "random" character, who drops some cracked, barely relevant morsel from the derposphere and then disappears completely. I'm not entirely convinced he isn't a bot. This one usually wanders in and out of a thread at least a little bit. Also in his favor, such as it is, he doesn't drone. We have a few of those -- wordy, tedious types with an apparently endless supply of dull verbiage. I think they have a deal with a rendering plant or something.

You can find out almost anyone's address by looking up property tax information.  Some states allow exemptions (celebrities and public officials), but you have to request them and they have to be approved.

This woman doesn't seem to be the brightest crayon in the box.  Too bad they aren't charging her for calling 911 with a non-emergency.

I would argue that contributing to a political climate where the tone of debate is one step short of actual violence is probably more irresponsible, given that your home address is a matter of public record.
