  •  Okay, here's a few... (0+ / 0-)

    (Sorry to link to a right-wing site, but I don't think legit media hyperventilate about this kind of stuff.)

    A few examples of recent tweets:

    "I propose we kill Romney. Simple and sweet,"

    "if obama loose we can't do anything but kill Romney (sic),"

    "If Obama doesn't win the election I swear to God I'll go to the US and kill Romney with my bare hands,"

    "I hope John Wilkes-Booth reincarnated and is ready to shoot Romney if he wins this election (sic),"

    The people who wrote those tweets are idiots, but I don't think they need to be jailed.
    •  None of them are threatening Mr. Obama, either, (0+ / 0-)

      are they?

      What else you got?

      It is time to #Occupy Media.

      •  They are threatening... (0+ / 0-)

        ...an individual who is under the protection of the US Secret Service. So, the question is, how much jail time do you recommend for the people who made those threats?

        •  No, they aren't. (0+ / 0-)

          Mittens SS protection ended on Election Night.

          Again, relevant examples are helpful. Why not just admit you don't have any?

        •  And in the event they were (0+ / 0-)

          posted before election night, then they should be investigated and tossed in the clink, too.

          Thirty days. That's what I said from the beginning. Were you really paying attention or are you just being contrary on behalf of your concern troll friends?

          •  People like you... (0+ / 0-)

            ...scare me, regardless of which side of the aisle they're from.

            As for the "concern troll" nonsense, I could point out that YOU are the one who seems overly-concerned about something that is, in all likelihood, utterly inconsequential.

            •  People like you shouldn't fear (1+ / 0-)

              those of us calling for an end to threats against elected officials--utilizing, say, the drunk tank, until they realize how socially unacceptable advocating violence is.

              You should fear those making the threats. What the fuck is WRONG with you?

              It is time to #Occupy Media.
