#1 Which basically says we have valid reason to distrust our "public servants". This is not only an abuse of power but a fundamental abuse of trust and exactly why so many average people do not trust the individuals in government positions not to abuse that trust to retaliate against citizens whose opinions differ from theirs.
This is a perfect example of the public's cynicism being validated by the actions of government employees. This can't be swept under the carpet. These people need to be fired and it needs to be very public.

#2 Wurzelbacher became an instant celebrity after he asked Barack Obama a series of questions in his Toledo driveway about the Democrat's tax policies.
I suppose it's too much to expect journalists to get their facts straight; Joe asked Obambi one fucking question. The reporter deserves to be cockpunched. Twice.

#3 His home was besieged by media outlets, including television crews that camped on his lawn.

#6 I saw a post somewhere which claimed that Joe's tax return showed income of only $40,000. Apparently they accessed that also?
My daughter in Berkeley (who says she's a libertarian but appears to be caught in the force field) claims that Joe "chased Obama down" to ask his questions, oops, question. "He saw Obama and had to go over and butt in."

#8 Hey, who's that over there, trying to hide in the bushes? Why, it's...I do believe...yes! It's the ACLU! Oh,wait. I forgot. Joe's not a commie, nazi, terrorist, guest at Gitmo, illegal alien, pedophile, or any other kind of America-hating scum. Thus, he's fair game. My bad. Never mind...

#9 Ask unscripted, inconvenient questions of The One - become an enemy of the state.

#10 DMFD, not yet. Next year he will be an enemy of the state. Right now, he is just an enemy of the One, and of the media.
