    Well, Mississippi made the national news again:

    Sounds like he may just be a little bit nutty. I mean, after all, the post was on a space alien web site forum.

    But according to this other CNN article the Secret Service is monitoring internet activity VERY closely (so they will probably read this post) in search of anything that might pose a threat to the incoming president.

    Lakeland man indicted in threat to kill Barack Obama
    Friday, January 16, 2009

    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- A Florida man has been indicted on charges of threatening to kill President-elect Barack Obama.

    Twenty-one-year-old Nathan Wine was indicted Thursday in Tampa on charges that he threatened to kill and inflict bodily harm on the president-elect. According the indictment, Wine made the threat on Nov. 5.

    The Lakeland man turned himself in to Tampa police on Thursday on a warrant out of Polk County.

    Authorities there have charged him grand theft of a firearm. Wine allegedly stole a shotgun from a Lakeland woman earlier this month. He is currently being held on a $25,000 bond.

    It was not immediately known if Wine had an attorney.

    Yeah they understandably take all threats seriously. They pretty much have to.

    Think of the criticism they would face if they dismissed a threat and then the person actually did something.

    And they know that in a nation of 300,000,000 people, there are a few idiots who would do bad things.

    Where I work, a black guy was always ranting about his racist white co-workers. He thought he was being discriminated against (he wasn't). He would actually threaten them. He was really paranoid.

    When George W. Bush was coming to a nearby town, he made some statements at work about killing Bush when he came to town.

    It got reported to the Secret Service, and they were seriously questioning him the next day.

    After that, the guy toned down his rhetoric at work and soon retired.
