As Skinner once said: When you post, you take your chances. And chances are overwhelming that if you're an HRC supporter, you're going to be alerted on and/or hidden.

Insofar as I may be heard by anything, which may or may not care what I say, I ask, if it matters, that you be forgiven for anything you may have done or failed to do which requires forgiveness. Conversely, if not forgiveness but something else may be required to insure any possible benefit for which you may be eligible after the destruction of your body, I ask that this, whatever it may be, be granted or withheld, as the case may be, in such a manner as to insure your receiving said benefit. I ask this in my capacity as your elected intermediary between yourself and that which may not be yourself, but which may have an interest in the matter of your receiving as much as it is possible for you to receive of this thing, and which may in some way be influenced by this ceremony. Amen.

Please Do something to these trolls trying to silence Bernie Supporters. Teach them that the primary won't be over till every state vote and the nominee is declared at the convention, or till Bernie concedes.[/font]

In fact, I specifically said "TEACH." But you want to make it about violence because you are incapable of NOT seeing such things in the supporters of Bernie Sanders.[/font]

Silencing dissent is a decidedly fascist characteristic. And Skinner's assuredly mercenary decision to keep the conflict going, er free speech, will be couched similarly.

But feel free to presume to be the king to decide whose voices have merit and whose are swine.

Says way more about you and your candidate than I ever could.
