randomjsa: They were so bitterly angry over the fact that the Boston bombing wasn't the right winger they wanted it to be but now they have something...!


Umm, the Boston bombing was a religious fundamentalist - don't get more right wing than that. 

/only difference between the Taliban and the Southern Baptist Convention is that the members of the latter were not born in a society that was poor and chaotic enough for them to force their archaic beliefs upon others at gunpoint..

At any point in your life, have you ever stopped to think "Should I try to be constructive, or just whine?"

If you haven't, I recommend stopping and giving it some mulling over.

basemetal: How are these people making ricin without killing themselves?


My guess is they aren't They're probably just crushing some castor beans, which sets off the ricin alert meter. I mean, no one can really think that the president is going to open a letter himself and be instantly poisoned. But it's a threat of worse to come.

sdkOyOte: They have the same blind ideology and looking to be amping it up, becoming less tolerant of the freedoms given by the constitution and relating everything to armed conflict in the name of God.


And that's bullshiat. You're creating an enemy in which to fight. You're applying a cartoon narrative to the world at large with the depth of a Captain Planet episode.

How about the attacks on the 2nd Amendment? Where the argument isn't over how far we should extend the right to armed self-defense but instead over why even allow it. How about the commerce clause bullshiat where the gov't has the tax authority and regulatory authority to do anything? How about the targeting of conservative groups by the IRS... that they have admitted so don't try and deny it.

If Constitutional rights were actually your concern you wouldn't be saying it's the Christian Right that's your enemy. Their biggest concern is the aborting of what they consider children and the violation of their right to life. That's a disagreement over the application of a right. Not trying to deny a right.

propasaurus: It's a bit weird that she actually turned him in. Married, 5 kids, sixth on the way. And it looks like she probably posted some derby teabaggery crap on her own Facebook. So, what set her over the edge to where calling the cops on her hubby was the better choice than confronting him about it?


Ricin in the family fridge, maybe?

Probably the possibility of a dangerous neurotoxin in the same house with their kids. Most decent parents wouldn't tolerate something like that since depending on 'safety precautions' it could maybe be as dangerous as a meth lab... Plus if he was far enough gone to actually carry out something like that, she probably saw the signs a while ago and put two and two together.

I'm a yes.  Beauty is just a light switch away, and that's a pretty damn tight body.  And I bet she loooooooves teabagging.

Once it became clear the letters originated in rural LA/TX area, it was a virtual guarantee it was some right wing survivalist nutjob.

Relatedly, I see a lot of people in this thread need a dose of this:

Secret Service officials have said there were similarities between the three letters received by Bloomberg, Obama, and Mayors Against Illegal Guns Director Mark Glaze. All three letters warned, "You will have to kill me and my family before you get my guns.

I think the bolded part may have been what set her off. I'm thinking she probably saw that in the news, and once she realized it was him she said "Oh hell no", and grabbed the kids.

skinink: Considering all the recent stories and leaks from unnamed sources/authorities that have come out about events that were factually wrong (like the friend of the Boston Bomber - he shot at police, or he had a knife, or he was unarmed, or he threw a table at authorities), I'll wait for the correct story to come out months from now if ever. It would be sad if this guy winds up the next mistaken Richard Jewell Dzokhar Tsarnaev.

AliceBToklasLives: propasaurus: Looking at her resume, she's basically an extra. Her credit on Walking Dead is as a zombie.

So if her character just growls, does that count as a speaking role?

/seriously,what does the SAG have to say about this?


At best she's a featured extra. Might still be covered under SAG, but it's not a speaking role.

Awww... your poor vagina. It must hurt.

Rejoicing? The left? Right winger?

You mean the people who say "We came unarmed... THIS time!" as a political slogan?

You sound very proud.

An American Tsarnaev. We're through the looking glass, people!

/Wait, the other ones were American too? Goddamit! Stop destroying my narrative!


If it makes you feel any better, I heard a rumor that this guy might have sat next to a Democrat on the bus one time, so this clearly still qualifies as a false-flag operation.
