Regarding salty talk aimed at the president (or other officials) vs visits from the SS
March 5, 2009 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 03/05/2009 12:43:09 PM PST by Jim Robinson

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.

Ever vigilant.

Keep your powder dry.

I am careful in what I say. But I have worried about FR and some things that are posted.

Just because I HAVE the freedom to express my thoughts doesn’t mean it’s always wise to do so.

Jim,

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?

"since he usurper was sworn in?"

Not since swearing in, but before, yes.

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?

On the average since our inception in 1996, about once every four years.

I'll never be embarrassed to defend the Constitution. It takes very little for a person to end up in jail under commie rule and therefore becomes a slippery slope. So the question is do we defend the Constitution by speaking out against Obambi at all or do we continue to let him trample on the Constitution to stay out of jail?

A BTT. This sort of thing was inevitable - tempers are flaring over what Obama turned out to be, worse even than most people thought, and not only from the point of view of the more conservative right. His people are going to see how far they can stretch things in an effort to silence the opposition.

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!

Thanks. Thanks for everything.
There does seem to be extraordinary irony that a public official can hold the highest office in the land or be a member of Congress and not have to be vetted in any way. That person could have a life-long affiliation with organizations that are contrary to the US Constitution and have life-long associations with countries that are enemies of our country, and still hold public office. There is no way that those unholy alliances keep them from undermining our government.
Yet, ordinary citizens who might find their actions alarming are urged caution in criticism.
What is wrong with this picture?

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?

I've already checked myself before posting a few times, just because some zer0bama green shirt might be watching. Other times though meh whatever.

Principle #7 of a "Good And Proper Government" is my answer here.

No link this time. Gonna make people work for it.

I don’t understand why it is any different from calling George Bush a chimp.

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.

TRUST ME...
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!)
