I must say that I am dissapointed that there was no major fight outside the convention center or that there were no assasination attempts on Obama. It's one thing to say in the history books "We ALMOST had a black president. He got shot before being elected". Other than that, all quiet on the Election front.

That too. I can't believe I didn't notice that he said he wanted Obama assassinated just to manufacture another Kennedy.

It was less of an attempt and more assholes that were so incompetent they got arrested before they could make one.

I don't think I quite get your meaning. You're not implying that you wanted to see Obama assassinated for the historical sensation that it would yield, are you?

The man has Secret Service protection. That basically makes him the equal of stating on this board that you wish for the death of the President- something that is instant ban.

I'm nearly positive it was just a bit of black humor that fell short. I don't think English is his first language, so a bit of trouble at such a delicate joke is understandable.

What, you wanted a riot? WTF?

And, by the way, there WAS an assassination plan for Obama this week, they arrested 4 people who were plotting to kill the candidate and had brought guns with them. Granted, they weren't likely to succeed in any case but there is definitely a reason for security at these events.

Now, please explain how it affects your karma to wish death on someone else - and kindly DO NOT wish such shit on my country's leaders. Especially not one who is actually intelligent, articulate, and might do some good in this world. If it was a joke it wasn't funny and if it wasn't a joke you're a sicko.

I made a mistake with that. I was disappointed that there was no fight or major disturbance outside. I don't want to see Obama get shot or have any such assasination attempt. I do remember the last Democratic National Convention though, we had a Fulan Gong protest. That was a real highlight of the year for a lot of people.

I think it was an attempt to be sarcastic, making fun of the twats out there who actually did want to see riots at the convention and probably wouldn't mind seeing an attempt on Obama's life *cough*LIMBAUGH*cough*.

I could be wrong, though.

I'm not sure wishing for a major fight or disturbance outside is any better. Why the fuck is a riot considered entertainment to you?

Why? As much as I loath code pink and the rest of the nutters outside, I'm not terribly inclined to see tear gas and a good baton whoopin inflicted on anyone, or see my counterparts in security (some of my co workers and subordinates are deployed there) or LEO's injured.

What the fuck is wrong with you? I'm curious, have you ever been gassed? I have, and it isn't fun. How about beaten by random strangers around you? Had your property destroyed and looted? Shot with bean bags? Beaten and zip-tied to restrain you? So why the fuck would you wish that on others for your own amusement? And that isn't even touching how warped you need to be to think that the seeds of a violent revolution are preferable to a peaceful transfer of authority, or that mayhem in the streets is better then our leaders responding to the will and wishes of the populace.

And there are 4 "S"s in assassination asshole.

...so you still wanted a fucking riot or fight?

That may be not as bad as desiring an assassination attempt, but it still makes you a worthless douchebag, douchebag.

Because this is a symptom of a larger problem. Face it, this shit here and things like Ed Becerras ravings against police in Armageddon? are nothing but bandwagon hopping. They see the other kiddies saying the same shit and try to raise the bar to prove they are in. He should be dealt with, but in its own time. If we fry him up now we are likely to divert from really fixing what is broken here.

I'm not entirely familiar with the tenets of Buddhism, but I'm pretty sure "wishing for riots and assassinations" isn't on the eightfold path to enlightenment.

If you meet the Buddha on the road to Enlightenment, bust a cap in his ass, he's a fake.

(It does actually say kill him, for the real Buddha is within, and this must be an imposter.)

No, it's not! It's a good way to come back next time as a cockroach.

Now that we're in HoS, let me vent my spleen more explicitly:
Buddha wrote:I made a mistake with that.
You sure as fuck did.

Did it occur to you to offer an abject apology?

Let me explain something to you. I am old enough to remember some of the 1960's. I remember what happened when, during a turbulent time in the US, those who spoke of hope and making things better were shot dead. I do not want my neighbors' blood running in the gutters of our streets to amuse YOU, YOU UNWORTHY SHITSTAIN ON THE UNDERWEAR OF HUMANITY.

Now, someone mentioned something about maybe English isn't your first language. That may excuse bad spelling or weird grammar, but what you wrote isn't a translation error - it's a wish for violence and death. Why the FUCK would you want that? What kind of degenerate piece of shit would suggest this even in jest?

We FINALLY get an intelligent, articulate candidate and you wish for someone to take a shot at him? What the HELL is wrong with you? IF someone did that our cities would fucking burn because, oh yes, you WOULD see riots, and death, and destruction. When Martin Luther King, the man who 45 years ago today dared to suggest that a black child could rise to the same status as a white child, who said that he dreamed of a day when people would be judged by the content of their character instead of the color of their skin, when he was shot our cities erupted. What the fuck do you think would happen if the man who, to many Americans, is now a living embodiment of that dream, was shot?

WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU WISH SUCH A THING? ARE YOU EVIL?

We have seen the content of your character - and it is wanting.

I now recognize what was said was wrong. Please folks, let's move on and take it for what it was worth. A joke, that just was in incredibly poor taste at that. I should have thought about what I said before I wrote it. No offense to Broomstick or anyone else. I don't want anything to happen during this year's Democratic National Convention. Let's see it go by without a hitch and with Obama as the promising winner.

The convention is already over you fucking nitwit. You even acknowledged that in your post saying you wish there had been violence, so I'm not buying this sudden ignorance act.

And a joke? Really? It didn't seem like a joke to me, and I'm not going to give you any benefit of the doubt concerning a language barrier as you come across crystal clear all the time. Except when it's a "joke", apparently.

No, we don't move on.

Your making a mockery of my faith. You wish for violence and harming of innocent people, the death of a person who is eloquent, brilliant and charismatic and a hope to rebuild the USA.

Then you try to say it's a joke.

No, fuck you. Not even a language barrier is that opaque. You do not get that luxury. You stated what you wanted to happen, and then your own disappointment at the results. If you were ANY sort of Buddhist and followed the teachings of the Buddha or the Lamas, such thoughts wouldn't even enter into your mind.

May you return as a flea, you insolent worm.

If I thought they would take me seriously for even a second, I'd ask the Senate to deal with you.
