There is much talk lately of a pass-and-run on the part of House Republicans.

My question is, where are they going to go?


Let's hope so!

Anti-choicers (mostly Republicans) have fought long and hard against legislation to keep protestors away from the homes of abortion providers.  They like to protest outside of their homes and the schools where their children go, and they have foiled several attempts to create a "bubble zone" around providers' homes.  Oh, and they also like to pressure their neighbors in an effort to increase the providers' isolation and emotional distress.

Well, I say if they go home, let's show up at their homes.

Just far enough away to be legal.

With big, inflammatory signs.

And chanting.  

I suppose there's always the possibility they could hide...but hey, in this era of social media, someone will see them.  Twitter makes that really, really easy.

If they live in a gated can be outside and still be super annoying, to the point where the gated community dislikes the attention.

In short, leaving should be the dumbest thing they ever came up with, because that means they are crossing their moat.

See you guys at home!!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    House in 2014:

    President Obama issues an executive order directing the Treasury to pay all debts of the United States in accordance with section 4 of the 14th amendment.

    He will be impeached, and hopefully the trial goes to the election.  Can you imagine that?  The president saves the country from a band of pirates, and the pirates have to stand up in the Congress every day and advocate for the idea that he should have just let the country go to hell.  That will ensure that the disrepute in which they find themselves presently mired goes on for the duration.

    Of course the president will never be convicted and the nation will be grateful.  It will go down as one of the most courageous and selfless actions of any president in history.

    Once they have impeached him, the Republicans will file suit in the U.S. Supreme Court.  Neither John Roberts nor Anthony Kennedy will vote to uphold a "law" that violates the Constitution and destroys the country.

    It's not in his nature to do things this way, but that's what will happen if he does.

    that says, if the GOP dine and dash, Obama can call a House session, if they don't show up, Nancy can seat a quorum and pass a clean CR among other things.
    This is unbelievable attractive!

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
