Re: “Tea Party Inspired by Racial Fears

One thing not reported: the Teabaggers physically threatened us peaceful, quiet counter-protesters. One patted his gun and said to one of ours "give me a reason." So no, they don't care about dialogue. They care about their own paranoid fantasies, protecting their tiny world views, and their own selfish needs. That's about it.

Re: “Tea Party Inspired by Racial Fears

Good article. Scary comments (most of 'em, anyway). Thanks for speaking truth to wackos.

Re: “The Camper's Book of Etiquette

- Don't burn things in a fire ring that shouldn't/can't be burned (plastic, glass, foil). They stink while burning and/or make a mess for the next person.
- If you must use an RV, don't run the generator. After all, what's the point of getting into the outdoors?
- If you bring along a dog, don't let it run amock. Not everyone loves your dog like you do. Clean up after it.
- Camping where there are no porta-potties? Pack that stuff out, too. You can rig an affordable porta potty by using Wag Bags (http://www.rei.com/product/662978), a cheap plastic toilet seat and a 5-gallon bucket. Overnight rafters do it all the time, why not do the same when car camping? If for some reason you can't be bothered to do that, dig a deep hole and pack out your toilet paper.
- Don't be lazy and drive the 50 yards to your picnic/fishing/swimming spot. C'mon, you're outside for a reason. Get some damned exercise already. Walk.
- If you're using an ATV or dirt bike, consider the noise and pollution you're creating. Think of not only your neighbors in the next campsite, but in the trees and bushes. Don't be a pest and stay on trails.
- Don't idle your car. It stinks and, again, kinda defeats the purpose of getting into the Great Outdoors.
- Are your little ones early risers? Your campground neighbors might not be. It might take a village to raise a child, but the villagers should be willing.
- Playing music but have neighbors? No Grateful Dead or heavy metal. Thanks.
