    Is this just for Native Americans?


    Has their been some (legitimate) threat against the President?

    (Well and ok, I have ADHD so there were dozens of other thoughts in there as well.)

    But my first rational thought was "Here we go again". I thought that THIS President could handle protests and criticism.

    There should never be free speech "zones". Wherever I am is a free speech zone.

    And if there is a threat against the President that needs to be dealt with in some other way.

    Tracy B Ann - technically that is my signature.

      the president. The diary says "local authorities". That's probably redneck Okies who don't want an event supportive of the pipeline interrupted with dissenting voices. Of course that's wrong of them to do. But it's also wrong to pin this on Obama without supporting evidence.

      Ds see human suffering and wonder what they can do to relieve it. Rs see human suffering and wonder how they can profit from it.
