    would be useful.  Threatening the life of the President was a felony even before the Patriot Act.

    I'll bet most of these people if convicted of a federal offense will start wetting their pants when they see where they're going to get locked up for the next 8 1/2 to 10 years.

    These people are all talk, but there need only be one person who decides on action to cause a great tragedy in this nation.

      She came close enough that she's probably come to the attention of people whose job it is to pay attention to such things.

      And if she ever crosses the line between abstract advocacy and concrete threat, someone will be there to arrest her.  

      Thing is, the way to fight people like her is by defeating them so solidly in a couple of elections in a row, that they can't raise the money to run for dog catcher after that.  

      The ones we want to save the prison cells for, are the lone wolf types that she inspires to commit violent acts.  Preferably when they are in the planning stage, rather than after a tragedy happens.
