    You do know that it is considered rude to not share any of whatever it is you are smoking
    A frightened population is a population under control and one that is willing to loose its civil liberties for the sake of ‘security’.

    The fact is that making fun of our politicians including presidents is a long standing American tradition and anyone who has a conniption fit over it needs to get a life.
    Yeah.

    Disdain for an evil destructive administration is not "the equivalent of hatred."

Just like what they used the IRS in the last election cycle to do.
    Yeah.

    I fail to see in validity in your claim here
    I guess he wasn't as beloved as you think.

    So you say. But so what if it was hateful? What is the Justice Dept doing getting involved? We both know why - to curtail negative speech about the Dear Leader!


    Whoops, I meant to include "and in typicality." Political satire isn't typically American either.
    I never said it was, only that it was a common practice, as common and American as apple pie.

    So you won't object if people call every instance of ignorance in the world "conservative," since plenty of conservatives have been stunningly ignorant?
    Do what you please, you are an obvious supporter of fascist tactics.

    I tend to agree.
