    Politically incorrect. Nothing more.

    And a waste of money, by the cops and the CIA.

    No, you can't agree with me. You are a rabid left wing hack, and I a right wing whackjob. We must never agree.... otherwise chaos will reign across the earth. :lol:

    I don't like it, but according to the standards of 2001-2009 it is a nothing.

    Before 2009 posting something like this would have been called patriotic. Now it is les Majestie.

    What I do find interesting is that a while ago a woman (it might have been Cindy Sheehan - and I can't be arsed looking it up) wore an anti-war t-shirt to a rally Bush was giving and the secret service tossed her from the event. I wonder what is more alarming - wearing an anti-war t-shirt or having teenage kids shooting at a t-shirt of their president? They're both silly to involve the SS.

    This is also very silly too. But then again, you Yanks don't fuck around with this stuff...lol

    Not the same thing... she was at an 'event'? what event? What was the 'anti-war' t-shirt?

    It depends on whether one construes the investigation, or likelihood of an investigation, as de facto preemption or prior restraint.

    Otherwise it’s free expression in my opinion per Brandenburg, there’s no imminent threat of criminal activity.
