How does an idiot get a hold of something like ricin? How does an idiot handle something like ricin and live to be arrested?

Just crushed some beans..., probably wasn’t even deadly. Still deserves to go to jail for a long haul.

So a hard-core Leftist (and a white guy) sent the ricin letters?

This story is going to go south faster than a Confederate duck.

If his beef was that Obama and Wicker were allowing some “wrong” to go on unaddressed, it will be interesting to see what exactly he was upset about.

Obama's base has been doing this all along including targeting Obama himself. Kinda like the Occupier who was shooting at the white house a few years back.

Obama stirs these people up and turns them loose. He's safe from them.

It’s a British paper so they have to explain where Corinth is. They’d probably have to explain where Gettysburg is, or Appomattox.

I pinged WKB to the first posted thread, with more information.

I guess it might be a little too late for him.

This "Proud Christian Democrat" also sent a letter to a Tupelo judge!

He's also an Elvis impersonator. Pictures on the linked thread...LOL.

Ricin comes from castor beans which are not in short supply.

Obama lies so consistently that I am not sure he received any letter. It would be just like him and his minions to try to drum up sympathy for him by stealing the attention. I DO believe a wacko Dem trying to murder a Republican.

You can’t be both. One goes against the good book. The other is for it.

In the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks there were incidents of Antrax being mailed to government officials. Now, in the aftermath of the Boston Bombing ricin is mailed to government officials. Part of me says this is very hard to be just a coincidence.
