Not a Frakkin' Hero

Vernon Hunter: HERO
Two Vietnam Tours
Killed Needlessly By Scumbag

Quick! Take a sec and google "amarillo globe news" and "vernon hunter". NADA

Google "amarillo globe news" and "Joe Stack" . . . 2 articles, plus MANY comments. Great F***ing job from the local "News" paper.

Been thinking about this for a while, so lets make it simple for our far right rethug readers here at PTS;

Joe Stack AKA "Austin IRS Plane Crasher Into Building" = Domestic terrorist/murderer

Simple, ain't it!

OOPS. . . . apparently NOT for Newsweek at least.

Look, Stack was a serial tax cheat. His suicide note, (NOT A MANIFESTO) is well written, and you can almost feel for the dude, but he did not file returns for years, he hung out with the equivalent of anti-tax teabagger zealots in the early 80's. At some point you gotta realize that the IRS has more stick than you have ass, and you pay up.

It helps no one when Congresscritters like Steve King (R, Religiously Insane, IA), sympathizes with domestic terrorists instead of praising Vernon Hunter.

How many of you righties have called in to Rush Rumproar, or written your local rag to denounce Domestic Terrorist Joe Stack? (Chiirrrp, Chiiirrp. . . ) instead of raising him to hero status?

Lastly, here is a thought: What is an acceptable number of Austinites to waterboard so's we can find out who Stack might have worked with?
