Response to Original message
17. I am utterly amazed
that no one has taken this hate filled mans head off.

Yes, there is the free speech angle, but doesn't common decency come into play at some point?

I really, REALLY would like to see this asshat and his deluded sheep locked up.
But, a good ol ass whoopen, done at several of his protests would suit me just fine.

Consequences, folks, thats what it would be about.
