The White House has a section to allow people to create petitions. I would love to hug the person that came up with this petition. I created an account just to sign it.

Petition to legally recognize Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group.
I misread that. I thought you created that petition!

The huggable person's name is Grant.

Signature # 281,826
And, oh my, 281,922-281,826 = 96 people have signed it while I was in the process of signing it. 96 signatures in a very brief moment.

Someone should make a graph of signatures per brief moment over time.

I love graphs. And I would assume people now know my feelings for hate groups.

The way it has been explained to me is that the Westboro Baptist Church is hateful because they can't have sex standing up. Being Old School Baptist means, no dancing is allowed, and having sex standing up looks too much like dancing.

The members should go for some kind of therapy; All three of them.

They're already considered a hate group. I'm sure they're already on FBI and other enforcement watch lists. I'm not aware of any special legal hate group status. ? I'm not really sure what the petition is supposed to be doing, although it's nice to show they're not popular.

I skimmed through wiki but didn't find anything about government considering them a hate group.

I wonder what "hate group" even means in the US when there is no restriction on speech IIRC.

Sometimes I laugh at what I read, but it's pretty rare. In this case I simply don't get the joke.
There was no joke but I just laugh at almost anything I see.

Did rootx see the lights of an airplane at the airport 10 km away and then wonder to himself if he would have been able to see them if visibility was 1 km
To make things clearer I made a picture of what I saw. Hopefully the picture doesn't bring more confusion

That's just it, there is no such thing as a "legally recognized hate group".

They are listed with watch groups as being a hate group, and they can be on law enforcement watch lists.

I feel very odd right now. I cannot sleep, I am thinking too much. It isn't about anything important.

Probably someone from Canada/Europe came up with the petition

Are birds always so stressed? They fly away moment they see any movement in the air, I wonder if they ever relax, maybe in their nests?

I feel sorry for animals. I think being "wild and free" means being hungry and hunted their whole lives.

I have quite a few spruce trees on my property, and they provide good good cover for the smaller birds, so they don't get preyed upon by hawks and eagles.
