Jon Daniel, angry young man, and Jim Ardis, mayor of Peoria. (The mayor's photo is on the right, if you couldn't tell.)

Wow...you guys are nuts. And I am conservative......a "kid" did something he should notRead More have. A parody doesn't harm other people like he was doing. I do not think anyone would want this "kid" to do it to them and their family. Teach the young man right from wrong w/ the proper punishment.....and chill out people....geeezzzz.....

Bob,I don't where you come from maybe russia, Iran I know the leader over there did the same thingRead More to his people. We are not the mayor or police chief, don't take the job if you can't take what comes with it. I am sure the Mayor said to the incumbent, I can do this job better then you, trust me vote for me, not everybody! the kid did not trust him saw who he really was. the kid is a hero, he brought the true colors of the mayor out, and the kid was wright. Now he got to go. and the police chief with him.

Bob... If someone said I was smoking pot with a prostitute I would have to sue them for defamation.Read More That is the proper punishment. And that is what we are trying to explain to you. He didn't yell fire in a crowded theater... that would have the potential to harm other people. They mayor, judges, and police were overzealous at least, or acted criminally at worst. I can't imagine how you think it's acceptable for the police to raid someone's house over a satirical twitter account... this is not Nazi Germany.

So basically, Mr. Shultz is saying that we should all just ignore these facts: * 83% of governmentRead More is NOT shut down * currently furloughed federal employees are pretty much guaranteed reimbursement of lost wages following the shutdown (a.la. every shutdown prior to this one) * The President has (until public opinion started going against him) refused every opportunity to negotiate with the House * The Senate has refused to negotiate with the House * The fed has deliberately made every attempt to make this shutdown as painful as possible by even barricading privately owned establishments should they fall on federally-owned property * The fed has kicked people out of their own homes if they happen to be on a lease of federally owned land - even though there is no government oversight of that land typically anyway * The have refused veterans the right to visit their memorials while allowing a pro-amnesty event to occur on otherwise 'closed' grounds * The fed even went so far as to block off state-owned roads which allowed for viewing of Mt. Rushmore even though the official park there was closed All of this, and Mr. Shultz wants us to hold Rep. Boehner in particular and conservatives in general responsible.... Hmmm. No.
