  1. It is my theory that these threats and brick throwing incidents are the result of ignoring the law breaking of the past administration. If they can get away with TORTURE, fighting a war w/ a nation that did nothing to us, removing habeas corpus from us, reading the email of US citizens, then why shouldn’t the true patriots of the US of Ahhhhhhh, also skirt the law and do as they please? All bets are off! Heck! They could KILL someone and who would do anything about it?

    We used to be a nation of laws, but for some reason, Obama has decided that needs to change!! Ironically, it is the left/Democrats who will pay for his mistake.
