” Not surprisingly, mass murderer Adam Lanza was a deeply disturbed kid:

Lanza’s strange behavior was well-known among his well-heeled neighbors in leafy Newtown, Conn. His antics irked several residents.

Mass murderer Adam Lanza, 20, was a ticking time bomb, people who knew him told the Daily News.

 

Apparently, his mother was often home to check on her son, despite him being 20 years old. Ann Althouse had this to say:

But why isn’t there more talk about institutionalizing the mentally ill? Adam Lanza’s mother needed to be home with him? What 20-year-old needs pervasive supervision from his mother? I suspect the mother, who is now dead, had very serious problems of her own. I can’t understand her keeping those 3 weapons — pictured at the link — in the home along with a 20-year-old man who — in her view — required her stay-at-home motherhood. ”

 

 

This comment on a post from Ann Althouse on Obama’s continuing slip of the veil is priceless .

Tom from Virginia said…

Let’s Play one-of-these-things-is-not-like-the-others.

President Jefferson: You shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread that it has earned.

President Lincoln: ‘You work and toil and earn bread, and I’ll eat it.’ No matter in what shape it comes, whether from the mouth of a king who seeks to bestride the people of his own nation and live by the fruit of their labor, or from one race of men as an apology for enslaving another race, it is the same
tyrannical principle.

President Kennedy: The rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.

President Obama: If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.

   Yesterday Ann Althouse showed us a letter that she received that was an attempt to shame her into voting which produced a similar letter from one of her readers about using public info on political donations to shame , intimidate or silence voters .

Things are not sitting well with the progressives these days , considering the depths that they will sink to in order to try and win . I’ve followed politics for a long time and have never seen the likes of these tactics before . Reeks of desperation .

“A reader emailed me:

I got the same thing on donations about 2 weeks ago (see attached).  Ugh

A group of “researchers” using a Harvard University return address (108 Littauer Center – I checked and Harvard has that center.) is sending out campaign contribution information showing one Republican donor (me) and multiple (blinded) Democratic donors.  This reeks of intimidation tactics, i.e. “we have your name, etc and we will spotlight you”.  They claim this is information from “my neighborhood” – I know I live in a very Republican neighborhood so these names could be pulled from anywhere, e.g. the big UVA Democrat areas several miles from here.

Have others received similar notes?  They do it under the guise of “research” but the timing and tone seem very fishy if not illegal.  Is this research being funded by “stimulus” funds by the Federal Government?  I am sure there are other questions here.

I have not gone to their website for fear of tracking, etc.”

 “ADDED: In the Comments, The Drill SGT points to this article, from a couple days ago, in The Chronicle of Higher Education: “Hey, Here’s Who Your Neighbors Gave Money to. Sincerely, Harvard.” “

 Via Breitbart:

           ANTI-WALKER GROUP SENDS MAILER OUTING YOUR NEIGHBORS WHO DON’T VOTE

” Wisconsin blogger Ann Althouse received this, what she called “the most disgusting thing I have ever received in the mail”:

Dear Registered Voter:

Who votes is public record!

Why do so many people fail to vote? We’ve been talking about the problem for years and it only seems to get worse. This year, we’re taking a new approach. We’re sending this mailing to you and your neighbors to publicize who does and doesn’t vote.

We need to pull together. The chart shows the names of some of your neighbors, showing which voted in the past.

After the June 5th election, public records will  tell everyone who voted and who didn’t.

Do your civic duty — vote.”

What on earth can one even say about this ?
