Federal law makes it a felony “for two or more persons to agree together to injure, threaten, or intimidate a person in any state, territory or district in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him/her by the Constitution or the laws of the Unites States, (or because of his/her having exercised the same).”Gee, when is Exxon going to start funding my historically-based skepticism about global warming? In my Western Civ class, I show a History Channel documentary about the Little Ice Age, and you can see the kids begin to wonder how much else they have been lied to about:
