Perfect my friend for the days when Obama stands before us and discusses imprisoning those who might one day do something to hurt us. I was afraid that I couldn't get another breath when he said those words.
I still can't believe that someone so smart so loving could be in agreement with such evil.

"The evils of government are directly proportional to the tolerance of the people."

that reminds me of the Mencken quote ""People deserve the government they get, and they deserve to get it good and hard." LOL
