If Hillary wins, I will be respectful of our leader. If you could read my thoughts, I would be on the SS [Secret Service] watch list.
The only thought that would put you on a Secret Service watch list vis-a-vis the president is a possible threat to their life.

As a woman, i would open the door for her…..now, if there was nothing on the other side but empty space and a 50 foot drop into a moat filled leeches and (gulp) rats…well, I can’t be held responsible.

How dumb and hateful do you have to be to allow violent threats against a senator and presidential candidate on your website? O’Reilly says that his site is not an open forum. Does that mean he approves of these threats against Senator Clinton? And, why is Fox News still giving him a platform to spew venom at Clinton and others with whom he disagrees?

    They should be investigating Annthrax Coulter.

    After all, she’s the one who threatened to kill a US Supreme Court judge because he’s too liberal for her warped tastes. She’s a menace.
