I am not sure what bothers me most about this story - the fact that it happened at all (the arrest), or the fact that people feel that the arrest is proper. We live in scary times.

I dont think one should take too much said on a forum or blog as serious.

now, if someone said they were going to kill an elected official, that should be looked into.

if someone showed joy in the fact that an elected official had been killed, thats another thing all together... ignorant, but certainly not something that they should be arrested for.

as far as being glad for the columbine shooters.. I find that one a little hard to get behind in the praise. However, if what was really meant that thanks to the columbine shooters, security and safety at the schools has increased tenfold, thats something different again.

What's wrong with global warming theorists, gun controlists, animal rightists, energy conservationists, national health insurancists, Nannies opposed to free speach, and environmentalists ? Answer: they all want government to solve every problem. Well so what, what's wrong with that ?

These gov't cheerleaders and worshippers are creating a leviathan government that now has unlimited power over all of us. They believe government won't harm us. Government is our worst enemy; worse than any mugger, drunk driver, drug dealer, rapist, vicious animal, murderer and or terrorist.

The US government has gotten more Americans (and foreigners) killed than any other threat.

The greatest threat to our freedom does not come from any external threat (foreign country), it comes from within, from our own government.

America has the most powerful government on the planet; it also has the most frightened citizenry.
