MACON, Ga. — Another traditional Easter egg hunt has fallen victim to aggressive parents, with event organizers in Macon, Ga., forced to cancel this week amid fears greedy moms and dads would become violent and trample on kids to grab eggs.
Joe Allen, founder of Kids Yule Love which organizes the Central City Park egg hunt, said previous bad behavior meant this year’s event had become a liability because “parents caused a situation in which some children got hurt,” The (Macon) Telegraph reported.
He said that a woman was hurt and several kids were trampled on at previous hunts as aggressive parents tried to get more eggs for themselves or their children.
“When people get hurt, they want some kind of compensation,” Allen added.
Lee Whitnum, an author from Greenwich who claims some of her ideas will anger voters, went after U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy for his stance on support for Israel.
“I am dealing with whore here, who sells his soul to AIPAC (the American Israel Public Affairs Committee), who will say anything for the job,” she said, in regards to Murphy.
Asked for comment, Whitnum’s fellow Democrat and Greenwich neighbor, Mr. Dollar Bill, was unequivocal in his support: “Lee has a constitutional right of free speech”, he asserted, “even if she did have to present her ID at the door tonight. And hate Israel? Of course she does! Name a single Democrat who doesn’t. I do think calling Mr. Murphy a whore was ill-advised, however – we don’t want to offend our core base, professional sex workers and wimmin in general.”
Today: Job news so bad that it’s good? “Disaster” as jobs report misses expectations. 120,000 new jobs, so will the printing presses get busy? It’s an election year and the Federal Reserve is under the sway of a guy running for reelection. What do you think?
