Get. The. Eff. Over. It.

Barack Obama is our president. Duly elected, stamped, sealed, and certified by our national congress and Supreme Court.

This fact seems lost on some people who want to get him out of office, regardless of legitimacy or reason. And by whatever means available.... including, apparently, murder.

Someone posted a poll on facebook asking "should Obama be killed?" (It has since been yanked but not before someone was able to take a screen shot of it.)

If you think it's a joke, you are seriously fucked up.

I'm not laughing and I don't think any conscious, educated, decent American (or human being for that matter) would be laughing about it either. And stop before you try the tu quoque argument... i.e., people did it against Bush therefore it's fine. Say it with me folks: "Logical fallacy."

According to Crooks and Liars, the rate of threats against the president was up 400% from the same time period in August 2008. For the full text click here.

Get. the. fuck. over. it.

Horrifying, but, gotta admit, it was shockingly naive to think that the people who did everything possible to hound Bill Clinton out of office (in between Republican administrations, when they called anybody who criticized the president a traitor) wouldn't amp it up a thousand times with an African American Democrat in office.... My one hope is that this current extremism will end up as useful to the Republican party as the Weather Underground and Black Panthers were to the Democrats...

Shockingly Naive?

Nah, we were just hoping that the clogged arteries due to over consumption of Chicken Fried Chicken and Apple Pie would have allowed nature to take its course.

Seriously, the people that went after the Clintons are the Black Helo crowd. Seriously dangerous {remember OKC Bombing?} Seriously deranged {remember all those cult compound?} and seriously armed.

Oh yea and seriously White Supremacist/ Christo-Fascists.

The only time I have for people like that at this point is to turn them and send them to jail, its just a matter of time before people like that get caught burning crosses, evading taxes, or gun running for White Power Crazies.

I just posted too about my concern for our president.....I am amazed at the blustery rhetoric, chest thumping, and just plain idiocy of the lower echelon of the society..........

It's amazing...scary and stupid. Seriously, do they think that we should have a "re-do" just because *they* are disappointed and having a tantrum? Basically, all this freaking tea-partying, gun-toting, fb threatening and glenn beckery amounts to a two-year old's tantrum (the scary thing is that many of these toddler-minded idiots are armed).

btw-I just heard that it only took Sarah 4 months to "write" her memoir entitled "going rogue" - me chuckles!

Boggles my mind, but not really. I've been worried ever since the election. There are incredibly crazy freaks out there.

And even when W. was at his worst, threats against his life never neared the rhetoric that is being bandied about currently. I hope, and perhaps it is not misguidedly, that the agencies responsible for protecting the POTUS are doubling their efforts.
