For F.B.I. agents, watching an Islamic State suspect in the United States is a study in anxiety. Being an Islamic State sympathizer is not against the law. Neither is expressing hatred for the United States on Twitter. Buying guns is also legal, and investigators have watched nervously as terrorism suspects passed background checks and purchased guns more than 2,000 times in the past decade, according to government data.
A terrorism suspect monitored by the FBI can pass a background check to buy guns in this country. If this isn't insane, I don't know what is.

You can thank the NRA for that bit of insanity.

Because what good is a Good Guy with a gun if the Bad Guys don't have them either. Fuck the NRA.

Terrorists have a constitutional right to bear arms. If you take it away from them, I mean, come on... slippery slope, guys.

Yeah, America be on the slippery slope to being an actual first world country, not a third world country that happens to have some people with a lot of money. What next, healthcare? Affordable university?

The anti-Muslimism spreading is very frightening...and playing right into ISIS' hands. These fearful halfwit reactionaries are doing exactly what ISIS want them to do. It's so predictable and sickening. Thankfully there are some leaders (Obama, Trudeau) who understand this. Hopefully the others will listen. The last thing we need are presidents and prime ministers acting like 14 year old boys on a schoolyard. We need intelligent, thoughtful people to deal with this complex and dangerous situation. Or just let Russia handle it. The US and Britain can take credit after, just like WW2.

Emotions are too unreliable to be the primary motivator in fighting ISIS.

If Trump becomes President it would be the worst thing to happen in human history. That man cannot have the power afforded to the office. He's very dangerous, and he speaks like a man who would have been part of the Axis, not the Allies.

I'd love to see Bush Jr, Cheney, Rumsfeld et. al. come out and say "Hey, sorry about this ISIS thing. It's entirely our doing." But no. Bush JR will be palling with his bff and partner in humanitarianism, Bono, on HBO. While the legacy of his illegal, unnecessary war continues to grow.
