    Not all speech is free speech. If this douche didn't know that, maybe he deserves 3 hots and a cot for a few months to help him sort some stuff out.

    Having said that, I don't blame him. I'll never say "I'm going to shoot Obama", but I'd wholeheartedly support anyone who said they would.

    I'd even buy the ammo.

    I am not sure if you are allowed to say that.

    It would turn it into a conspiracy.

    The only thing protecting Gipper from a full rectal examination by the FBI at this point is there's probably ten thousand dumbasses who say similar things a month and there's no time to investigate all of them.

    Do you realize what you just said? "Especially not this administration."

    That type of speech is not protected by the First Amendment. May as well be shouting "FIRE" in a theater, or "BOMB" on an airplane.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
