Yeah, I saw this yesterday. It made it to the progressive political forum I post on. What a fokken coward, whoever it was who reported her. This is what it's come to. The country has become so polarized in the last 4 years that you can't even have a political opinion anymore without serious reprocussions.

the secret service responds to any and every reported threat to the president's life, no matter who's in office... republican or democrat. if you make such a threat in a public place and it gets reported, you can expect to have the secret service looking into it, even if it's meant in jest. the service is not run by president bush. they are perhaps the only non-partisan group left in Washington DC. every threat is taken serious, because god forbid the one time they don't take a threat seriously and something happens.

It's a nation run by fear. If Bush is elected again, expect more of the same for 4 years.
George Orwell was off a few years.
"1984" is now. Big Brother Is Watching!
Report everyone that is an enemy
of the State. Have a Nice Day!
However, If a person wrote about doing harm to the president, then the Secret Service & FBI have every right to investigate though.

It's a public post. I'm sure people would like to actually read what happened in her words.
links have been posted

I'm sure this person got everything that was coming to him/ her. I am glad to see that the FBI are doing their job.

I think one can safely disagree with the president and call him a complete utter moron and be safe....just don't say anything that implies harm as 'Headache' said.

The problem is when one CANNOT say these things (i.e. prez=moron) that constitutes a problem.

I could make a sleazy joke about a sexy Bill Clinton thread being an advantage for an internship U2Democrat - but then again I just did

I can't really speak for the girl because I did not see the original post or have any prior knowledge of her, but to say that she deserved getting reported to the FBI for ranting about something Bush said -- isn't that a bit extreme? Like I said before, I can't really speak on her behalf but she seems perfectly nice and I can't imagine why she would, of all people, deserve be reported for exercising free speech.
