  •  While "sedition" and "treason" are over the line (0+ / 0-)

    of legal reason, not sustainable (though I might add "yet"), I answered one comment about how silly such thought are with one wondering how it might play out if

    these were a clique of Pakistani and Iranian first generation Americans with jihadist sympathies? I expect a way would be found just as one was found to establish "life in Gitmo" in violation of our principles and, at least in most of our opinions, the constitutional provisions for such acts.
    Though "sedition" and "treason" won't fly and I will have to admit the intention is probably not clear (though one wonders among some) the effect is probably the same. I am seeing in the United States far, far too many similarities to the Soviet Union in its final days, a "superpower" with hollowed out economy  and institutions classed so only because of weaponry.

    The only foes that threaten America are the enemies at home, and those are ignorance, superstition, and incompetence. [Elbert Hubbard]
