    Yeah, we get it. In the world of the right wing nuts, it's all Hilary's fault. She has far less blame for that than Bush Jr. had for 9/11.

    That doesn't qualify for "domestic terrorist" according to the FBI:

    FBI — Terrorism Definition

    18 U.S.C. § 2331 defines "international terrorism" and "domestic terrorism" for purposes of Chapter 113B of the Code, entitled "Terrorism”:

    "Domestic terrorism" means activities with the following three characteristics:

    ■Involve acts dangerous to human life that violate federal or state law;
    ■Appear intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination. or kidnapping; and
    ■Occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the U.S.

    While I don't really agree with the ranchers, I would hardly say that they are domestic terrorists.
    How about if they kill some Federal law enforcement officials? Would that constitute domestic terrorism?

    I think if drones were used to take out domestic terrorists, most of the country would applaud. But hell, if drones bother you so much, I'd be perfectly happy with armored personnel carriers and machine guns.

    They aren't domestic terrorists, according to the FBI.

    Nobody in their right mind would think the country would applaud if the government started using drones on its own citizens.

    McVeigh isn't the topic of this thread. Harry Reid is.
    Most of these women attached to right wing terrorists do exactly what their men tell them. You know they're stupid because they're hanging around with guys who like to play soldier in the woods and pretend the Jews/Blacks/Mexicans are coming to get them.

    Yeah, I know you'd rather have dozens of law enforcement officials killed trying to smack these anarchists down. I wouldn't. Bring on the drones if that's what it takes. But as I said earlier, if it can be done with machine guns with no loss of life to law enforcement folks, I'm fine with that.

    Martin Luther King did very much the same thing in Birmingham with the "Childrens Crusade" with kids as young as 8 years old. You should read up on it if your giving lessons.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
