It’s official. The crazies have arrived for the 2012 presidential race, florid in their deviant and repulsive rhetoric. Andrew B. Adler, editor of The Atlanta Jewish Times, called on Israel’s President Benjamin Netanyahu to “Order a hit on a president in order to preserve Israel’s existence.” This reference to President Barack Obama appeared in the print edition of the paper on January 13 and was first published online by Gawker on the 20th (alternate links here and here).
Right wing Republican Mike O’Neal, speaker of the Kansas House of Representatives, forwarded an email referring to the president that quoted (approximately) Psalm 109.8: “Let his days be few and brief; and let others step forward to replace him.” The Lawrence Journal World noted that the very next verse, 109.9, indicates how the president should be replaced: “Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.” (Image SND)

There’s some upbeat news for the long-awaited Heartland Preparedness Center.
Not only is dirt being moved for the facility, but the military part of the construction is being done for nearly half the $68 million originally estimated — without scaling back the project.
Construction could start Oct. 31 on the Kansas National Guard Armory, followed in late November by a maintenance shop. Both projects are slated to be completed in March 2013.
If all the pieces fall into place as expected, the center would be the nation’s first homeland defense center merging city and county public safety and the military, officials said. The Kansas Highway Patrol is also trying to join the partnership.
