Skip to comments.Regarding salty talk aimed at the president (or other officials) vs visits from the SS

Unfortunately, we are saddled with a communist sympathizer in the White House. I don't know whether or not he's an actual card carrying commie, but he's definitely an America-hating, anti-capitalist Marxist leftist who thinks communism is the way to go. Now I remember when America used to fight against communism. It wasn't that long ago. Many of us on FR are veterans of wars against communism and some of us believe that American citizens who are communists are the enemy within, ie, the domestic enemy we've sworn to defend against. American citizen? hmmmm... that may be a loophole for Obama.
At any rate, the oath is to defend our constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. I can imagine that this places an enormous strain on our Secret Service agents. It's obvious to anyone with a brain that Obama is an enemy of the constitution. So should the SS defend the constitution or defend the anti-constitution commie?
So now comes the problem. If you feel it's your duty to call Obama a traitor and use salty language in your proposed resolution, ie, suggest the commie be keelhauled, walked off the plank, run up the yardarm, tarred and feathered and run out of Dodge, etc, etc, etc, you may be facing a visit from your friendly Secret Service. And even though your visiting agent may agree politically, and may take his oath to the constitution seriously, he's still sworn to protect the officeholder and it's his duty to take all threats seriously. And that may include serving me with a subpoena to turn over your IP address. Now I'm duty bound to protect your privacy to the best of my ability, but I cannot defend against stupidity.
Best advice I can give is to keep it to yourself. Don't post anything that may embarrass you later, or end you up in the slammer.
Keep your powder dry.
Geez, you would think he called him a “smirking chimp” or something...
but that would be racist
Have you been asked to provide such identifications since he usurper was sworn in?
sheeesh, the secret service should know that Obama is a socialist, not our fault
Good advice and well written. Thank you.
I am careful in what I say. But I have worried about FR and some things that are posted.
Just don’t do a movie showing him supposedly being assassinated.
“Now I’m duty bound to protect your privacy to the best of my ability, but I cannot defend against stupidity.”
Understood...and thanks JR!!!
Wasn’t that movie about President Bush being assassinated?
Well said Jim.
Very well said, Jim.
Just because I HAVE the freedom to express my thoughts doesn’t mean it’s always wise to do so.
Does the SS ever request FR to turn over the IP address of a member? If so, how often does this happen and when was the last request?
Not since swearing in, but before, yes.
Aye aye Captain!
Very good question. I have certainly seen more than few comments that have crossed the line.
I don’t think I post anything that would qualify, but just out of curiosity, would you inform a user that his/her information had been requested or are you not allowed to do that?
What about drunk AND stupid?
On the average since our inception in 1996, about once every four years.
The day the SS comes to my door, hahaa..haha. You can not write stuff like this, true life is stranger than fiction. Barry is so thinned skin, kind of tragic.
Think twice—Post once.
LOL! It’s gonna be a long four years...
Hey, where's A+Bert? I used to think he posted drunk all the time.
Meaning they were requests re Obama, or some other candidate or President?
I pray for the safety of President O every day. Because the thought of Joe Biden being president makes me hurl.
Guess we need code words for commie. haha.
Think twice before hitting the Post button is my advice. But to the inevitable police-state lurkers I shall say only this - the time to worry isn't when people are shouting. It's when they grow silent.
I might add, that it’s getting harder & harder to keep ones powder dry.
I get teary eyed thinking about what Obama and his henchmen are doing to this great country!
Once under Clinton, once under Bush and once under President Elect Obama.
Another reason to NOT to use the words President Obama. See, it’s for YOUR protection :)
But, if one would use words like The Commie, or The Big-Eared One, would that be ok?
Okay....so I did call Bill Clinton a lying male slut. These days I actually pine for those days.
LOL! Can I steal that?
Principle #7 of a "Good And Proper Government" is my answer here.
No link this time. Gonna make people work for it.
“Geez, you would think he called him a smirking chimp or something...but that would be racist>”
I don’t understand why it is any different from calling George Bush a chimp.
Why when I saw this title did I think of visits from an entirely different SS, from, let’s see...about 70 yrs ago?
I think I know why Barry wants our IP numbers, he wants to come dig in our yards and look for our tin cans of buried treasures.
Presumably the mods have been given instructions on where the line is and what to do when the line is crossed?
I mean your comments are one part of the equation, but I think the mods doing their job is another important part.
Can you elaborate? We can call him a Marxist but should not say he needs to be keelhauled? In other words, call him what he is but never talk about harm, even tongue in cheek.
Trying to keep you on your toes, eh?
“Incitement to violence and overt threats will get people investigated.”
The Feds take threats on the internet VERY seriously....
I testified at the trial of one deranged “Liberal”, Vikram Bhuddi, (Actually a Pakistani MUSLEM STUDENT), and have given a deposition in another. (The kid from Tennessee that hacked Palin’s account!)
Very true, we’re not liberals so our words have consequences.
Because we are better than that.. If the left wants to act like idiots and make quasi-racist remarks doesn’t mean we have to.
What about calling Barry a nicotine addict?
