Now an Indiana legislator has taken his extreme right-wing views to attack ...  the Girl Scouts

The New York Daily News reports...

"A Republican lawmaker in Indiana was the only state House member to refuse to sign a resolution honoring the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts that lawmakers approved last week, claiming that the 'radicalized organization' supports abortions and the homosexual agenda. In a letter obtained by The Journal-Gazette of Fort Wayne on Monday, Rep. Bob Morris (R) informed colleagues that 'he did some research on the Internet and found allegations that the Girl Scouts are a tactical arm of Planned Parenthood, allow transgender females to join and encourage sex.' Morris also said the fact that first lady Michelle Obama is honorary president 'should give each of us reason to pause before our individual and collective endorsement of the organization.'"

I get it -- Michelle Obama is pro-Girl Scouts, so they must be evil.  Somebody needs to tell Morris they're selling cookies -- not condoms and abortions. But hey, it's the NEW Midwest and it's cool to be crazy now.

The Journal Gazette reports that, in his letter, Morris said...
"I challenge each of you to examine these matters more closely before you extend your name and your reputation to endorse a group that has been subverted in the name of liberal progressive politics and the destruction of traditional American family values."

And speaking of Midwestern extremism, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is prepping for the upcoming G-8 summit with aerial drones, armored horses (!), gas masks, snipers, and something called "Vislink," which is the latest in advanced survelliance technology, the Chicagoan reports:

"The airborne units will transmit to four strategically located ground-based receiver sites providing city-wide coverage and the ability to simultaneously receive real-time images from two aircraft for viewing at the Office of Emergency Management and Communications (OEMC) operations center. An additional three receive systems will be installed in the city's mobile command vehicles to facilitate field operations."

Gee, where was all this fancy fascist gear when Michael Jordan led The Bulls to consecutive NBA championships and the people celebrated by setting street fires, rolling cars, and shooting guns at random objects?  But the question is, what will they do with all their nifty spy gear when the threat of the G-8 protests is no longer present?  Hmmmm . . . . can't imagine it's all going into storage.
