As someone who has struggled with unemployment…

…this really bothers me:

The likes of Daily Kos, Democratic Underground, and have launched assaults against not only this site, but against us personally. Against us as private citizens and individuals. They are costing us work, harassing us at home, making physical threats against us, and doing everything they can to shut us down. emphasis mine

Trying to cost them their jobs and livelihood, particularly in this economy? That’s way over the line!

It is one thing to go after someone politically. If you are going to be in the marketplace of ideas you have to be prepared to take some bruises. It’s quite another when you try to take away a person’s livelihood. I’ve seen this before and the same word applies now as it did then.

    The Source of New Jobs!
    New jobs begin with pebble droppers, people making waves and wakes, the entrepreneurs who start business ventures. The “soil” must nurture them, not discourage them. Pebble droppers must be saved and admired for the service they provide. Instead, they are envied by the few, taxed and punished by government, whose only purpose should be to protect all people against injustice. This book defines a pebble dropper and the environment that is best to encourage the pebble dropper’s success. Today’s politicians are dismantling the American ideal of a “prosperous, free nation.” The 2008 election did seek “change,” but made community interests superior to individual interests. What has happened to the voices who believe in the importance of the individual? They are why America differs from the rest of the world. If “change” is inevitable, will we lose that which sets us apart from the Old World? See Save Pebble Droppers & Prosperity on and
