I know you meant this in jest, but be very careful. Obama's minions might report you. Remember, Obama's staff have people who just troll the internet to see who's against him, and then they attack. This is a very different world now. Everything you post, say, or utter is looked at. Simple key words that are said over the phone will trigger a tap on you line. Comments in blogs against the president are reported, and you are looked at. Trust me when I tell you this, it's best to not say a word, and just except what's going to happen to us. We lost, and they won. It's over for America. Always remember, Socialism will eventually fail once other peoples money runs out.

ANY death threat to ANY sitting United States President is cause for investigation by the Secret Service and the FBI regardless of who the president is. To not recognize that fact is to show how twisted some people on the political extreme right have become. And besides, The (un)Patriot Act was the product of the Bush Administration so if you are being investigated by federal authorities who do not need warrants to spy on your electronic personal communications, blame Mr. Bush. That kinda sucks, doesn't it?

After Clinton was elected many conspiracy theorists and militias arose. Republicans and right wing conservatives were infuriated at his election. They thought that Clinton was going to take their guns and bring in black UN helicopters. The Timothy McVeigh followed through on the hate and the conspiracy and bombed a federal building, killing children in a daycare center and scores of others. The sky didn't fall because Clinton was elected, the UN didn't take over and the U.S. still exists today. Now it's 2009 and another Democrat has been elected and the same violence, fear and tension is beginning to arise.

When you write a comment such as you did you spread disinformation and conspiracy. Don't feed the hate, feed the love. Feeding the hate leads to violence. Another election will come in '12 and you'll be able to work for what you want. We're all Americans together ---- e pluribus unum and God Bless America.

<quoted text>Al x, in a perfect world (or country), I would totally agree with you. However, the United States is anything but a perfect country. So, do I really care if the government is listening to me or anyone else on the phone so that we can assure the safety of our country? NO. If I had anything to hide, then maybe my answer would be different. But if talking to my Mom and Sister-in-Law as well as the occasional phone sex (just kidding) is what they want to hear, then so be it. So maybe we should thank President Bush for having some nuts that no other President ever had to make a stand and say we will monitor those who we believe pose a threat. Is there really a problem with that?
Before Bush, the federal government could spy on you any time that they wanted too. The difference was that before the Patriot Act, they had to secure a warrant to do so. In other words, they had to show probable cause to a federal judge in order to secure said warrant, which is a cornerstone of our constitution. Now, no warrant is needed. That is what sucks. Also, if one makes a death threat or any other threat of physical harm against a sitting US president, they should expect the full force of Federal authority to rain down upon them. Finally, there is obviously nothing wrong with valid and civil political dissent in a democracy but since President Obama was elected, the vitriol coming from the fringes of the right wing have crossed the line of civil political discourse.That is wrong no matter who is crossing that line.

Wow, maybe you need to learn how to spell. Where is the love? Hating and promoting violence is just making all our lives more miserable. And where is the respect? He is the President. If you don't like this country you can leave! Try to find it better somewhere else because your probably a freeloader anyway.

He is not a WHITE DUDE...and even if he was, how would that differ from him being latino? Maybe he is just crazy and we don't need to label him a color. And for the record...Not all white people agree with how people of color are treated! I voted for Obama!

Listen to yourselves...minions to attack? Come on. Of course he needs protection. From crazy right wing wako's that like to take the law in their own hands! and who is perfect? NOONE! we are human. Greed and Power get to all people. Anyone who tries to make a difference for the little people gets taken out. Like Lincoln or Kennedy.

Too Bad's initial comment regarding the man outside the Federal building has been marked as abusive and should be reported to the secret service. The point is that you have the right to disagree with any and all political policies. We all do. You absolutely do not have the right to threaten someone that you do not agree with--politically, emotionally, or spiritually.
I wonder how many other angry, fringe, conservatives will be motivated by the outrageous behavior we are seeing on t.v. town hall meetings. I am alarmed by the hate and the vitriol. I have been unwilling to admit that our country is still controlled by racism and intolerance, but the actions of so many this last week make it hard to defend so many of our American citizens who become violent and find it acceptable to resort to racist posters and language couched as their "right" to freedom of expression.
We can do better.

Liberals are babies. Sheesh. What a nazi nation we live in: you have a bad day, and then you're accused of "threatening the White House".

Ever heard of the 1st Amendment, nazis?

PS, the guy is a latino homosexual, who ran twice for El Segunda council (as a Demorat of course)

There are people in need in this country and yet we are helping people elsewhere. I agree there needs to be regulations on some who take advantage, but there are loopholes in everything. But you can't just ignore the poor. Maybe Obama really wants to help people in need, unlike our past President. Can u imagine being the guy that has to fix this broken country?

the intel say's the man is sick , and not on his med's . but still , authorities continue to lob in tear gas canisters , one after the other . what is the sense in that is this what all our money for training go's for ? it was evident early on that the man was no terrorist . what didn't they just taser him , so he will be incompasitated then open the door and take him into custody . instead of wasting all of the valuable resource's

Right on! Very well articulated. It makes me sick how people act and treat others. Especially now since we have a black President. It is an outrage and just shows how overly conservative and racist our country still is.

It will be interesting to hear the details/facts from this case. It better be good for the cops to be doing all this police state garbage in the middle of our neighborhoods.

Just watched a video of an 80 something year old black woman thrown on the ground by a crazy cop because she was walking (with the help of a cane)in a parking lot with a steak knife. They busted open her head. Watched another of a stinking cop tasering a mother who was pulled over with two kids in her car. She dared argue with the pig about his claim she was speeding. Tased her and arrested her. We got a problem in the US and we better get these people under control fast.
