These are THE SAME Yahoo Finance boards that liberals and foreign nationals like VIKRAM BUHDDI were convicted of making threats against President Bush. And the Sarah Palin E-Mail hacker.

I can't help but notice that while this article CHEERS this conviction, there were so many other articles decrying the conviction of Buddhi and others as Bush Nazism, FASCISM, unconstitutional, etc.,etc..

I guess a different set of media rules applies when one is against the Democrats, rather than for them.

That said, it's good to remember, folks, that you just CANNOT say some things in an open forum, and the FR site owners have often reminded us of that!

I wouldn’t be suprised if there was a White House Office for
Surveillance of Reich Wing Web Sites!

“I want to make clear that in my choice of words, I think I unfortunately gave an impression that I was maligning the the office of the President and the President himself. And I could’ve calibrated those words differently.”

We can proclaim from the treetops that Obama is a rotten stinking pile of poop, and nobody can touch us. Try that in England or (heaven forbid) Singapore.

"The government's position essentially was that the defendent intended to make a threat,"

He intended to make a threat? What the hell is that?

The guy is most certainly guilty of being a drunk racist but as far as I know, there is no law against that...

I was just reading an article about the Secret Service and it mentioned a worker that drew their attention at a golf course pointing a scoped rifle at a president from the roof of a house under construction, it turns out the guy was using the scope to get a better view of the President and they released him after an interview.

I just can’t imagine someone that stupid and that incident was fairly recent.

Bagdasarian requested and was granted a bench trial, meaning no jury decided his fate. In finding him guilty U. S. District Judge Marilyn Huff found the two messages Bagdasarian posted on the internet October 22, 2008, were intended as a threat. The messages, one which read,"He will have a 50 cal in the head soon,"

*************************

Are you saying that the above is not a threat?

Ain’t it great? Barry Soetoro is so “offendable” we all ahve to walk on egg-shells. He is a minority you know. Between that and Barry and Al Gee having us stumbling around in the dark, saving our carbon credits, it’s getting tiresome.

I suppose it's a veiled threat...I have seen much worse on some Left leaning blogs in regards to both Cheney and Bush.

I don't know...it's difficult to put much credence in a internet posting on any website.

It's not that I condone threatening the POTUS but I don't ever remember reading any stories like this during the Bush presidency.

“I have seen much worse on some Left leaning blogs in regards to both Cheney and Bush.”

Yes, but you have to understand that death threats from most LEFTISTS aren’t taken seriously. They are just emotional epithats from people who CARE SO MUCH...

On the other hand, a supposed threat from a CONSERVATIVE could mean an armed domestic terrorist, and MUST be taken seriously!! Don’t you keep up with the DHS memos?

It’s good to remember that it wasn’t the threats themselves that got Vikram Buddhi convicted by the feds, but the Federal ID Hacking charges....

Sounds to me like prophecy.

So if it actually happens, does he get blamed for that too?

I recall that there were death threats against President Bush, but they may not have been treated with the same severity as this one against Obama.

At a trial, he could have said that since Obambi did not have proof of citizenship, he was not eligible to run for office, so that particular law does not apply. Then let the prosecutors try to produce evidence to refute that claim.

Only if it can be proved in a court of law that he was responsible. At least, that's how our system currently works. Who knows what the future will bring?

Well, they can't...yet. Give them time, though.

What are they going to do, throw this guy in jail for 5 years because he got drunk and started typing on his computer?

There are thousands of threatening comments made every day on the Internet, and many are directed at people running this corrupt government? Some overt, some obvious.

Half these threats are probably from those that have had a few.
