this quote comes from the Office of Intelligence and Analysis Assessment on "Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment", under KEY FINDINGS, " The current economic and political climate has some similarities to the 1990s when rightwing extremism experienced a resurgence fueled largely by an economic recession, criticism about the outsourcing of jobs, and the perceived threat to U.S. power and sovereignty by other foreign powers."

watch out conservatives looks like you and soldiers returning home from war are susceptible to blowing up federal buildings. better put a zip on that lip of yours and keep your concern about the state of our country to yourself, or better yet, convert to socialism and let it happen, let the government be the largest private stock holder, let them be able to run private industry-fire and hire auto industry ceo's, let them drown us and future generations in deficit, let them take the us dollar off the gold standard entirely and turn the us dollar into a peso, let them praise castro and buddy buddy with chavez without showing an ounce of concern over such ill conceived plays, but most of all, let them know whats best for you and your family.

and for those who would combat this with an argument about the mishaps of the bush administration, please save your time, because that's not much of an argument-most intelligent americans know and realize the fallacies that happened under the previous administration, but the past does not negate the present, and this is about profiling those with certain political views, be they yours or mine or someone elses.

Amen sister!
And especially the last paragraph. Just because we question the current adminstration, why do people assume we just loved the previous?
People have been so disillusioned. I can say one positive thing for Obama - He had a hell of a marketing team.
