Threats Against the President

In the midst of Sean Hannity saying that this isn't the America he was raised in, apparently other people have risen up in hate and vengeance to do more than just talk. Apparently death threats are up 400% against Obama since the inauguration, which is far beyond what the secret service has ever witnessed.

Even more ridiculous is this pastor, Pastor Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church, who preached these things at his church:

"And I'm going to tell you something. I hate Barack Obama. You say, well, you just mean you don't like what he stands for. No, I hate the person. Oh, you mean you just don't like his policies. No, I hate him."


"I'm going to pray that he dies and goes to hell."

Is this the America we should hope for as people with hate try to take us back to whatever they insist has changed?  Ridiculous.

I have some friends that are going to hear Senator Claire McCaskill at a healthcare listening forum in Springfield. I hope better things happen there than the crap listed above. More info on that town-hall meeting:
