We're talking about 100,000 signatures in Texas... which is less than 0.5% of the population of the state. Sounds like a small group of fringe looney whiners to me.

Instead of derision shouldn't the response be "when so many people are complaining we should really pay attention to their complaints"? It is indeed far easier to do something idiotic, like call them "sore losers" or "country bumpkins", rather than try to address their problems.

We are talking about folks throwing a temper tantrum because they lost the election (ignore the fact that the vote was rather close in half of those states). You can't address that aside from a spanking/grounding.

I read once that there are several lawyers in the family and outside of donations their main source of income is suing people who attack them. Sounds like a scam to me.



That is my general feeling about it as well.

Unfortunately they are not alone. Many times I have seen pamphlets about the evils of reading books or watching TV. I have seen pamphlets on these types of churches that want donations so they can buy a private jet or something frivolous.

Well, since this is really much to do about nothing (the petitions that is) there really should be nothing to comment about. Other than making one self feel superior to the complaining losers.

And actually on topic; Formula 1 is indeed evil, must start a petition on the White House site! :P

I am like Mikey, in having no real words for the sheer stupidity of this.
