    I find it bizarre that in the 21st century, with so many other problems and interesting events in this world, that you're so fixated on race. I don't have the time.

    Her taste in clothes sucks and she is ugly. Someone should sic the fashion police on her!

    Threatening the President of the United States is a class D felony under United States Code Title 18, Section 871.[1] It consists of knowingly and willfully mailing or otherwise making "any threat to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm upon the President of the United States".

    How about if someone gives the SS a post from this forum with an address. Then all the SS has to do is make a simple house call, not a dogged persute. I'm glad you agree.

    No, just people who want to kill him - or, as one poster here offered, buy the bullets for whoever does.

    PS Threatening to kill anybody is a crime.
    But it's a felony when you threaten the presisdent. A felony is punishable by at least 1 year on prison.

    You don't expect people here to be actually affected by Federal Law, do you? Especially when its the anti-christ Obama.
