    Great job Secret Service!
    Keep these nuts away from our President.
    If you want to be really proactive you may want to keep a closer watch on some of the Amerikun "patriots" that like to defacate on our President on this site as if the internet were really completely anonymous and untraceable.

    No. That's a bad mama! No no no. You can be sure that some internet posting behavior throws up big red flags, but I don't think anyone should be encouraging that kind of "monitoring" thing occurring in a widespread manner.

    Gotta agree with Sniffit on this one. There ARE limits to free speech. No doubt. No one wants to live in a police state, though.

  13. Wake up People!

    Great job Secret Service! Please keep our First Family safe.

    As far as keeping an eye on the trolls, I really don't know how I feel. I know we have the right to free speech, but never in my entire 40 years on this planet have I ever heard or experienced such outright hatred for any POTUS. While I know most spew their hatred anonymously behind a computer, the majority of which wouldn't bust a grape at a Bellagio grape festival, sometimes I do worry.

    Stay safe and watch your back Mr. Prez.
