I have a copy of Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds, by MacKay. It is worth reading, the borrowing booming, the recession to follow, the Islamic crusades.
I do not think this means give in, it means if we report them as the majority and give them air time they win. Reporting needs to be plain and simple, "Unemployed and single XYZ, had big dreams, but failed miserably in an extremely poorly planned attempt at attacking ABC and will now spend the next twenty years in prison". Your reporting risks an escalation of tit for tat attacks and a civil war or worse. Pay them down, report them little and use the special intelligence forces, catch them using extreme methods and shoot to kill.

Why did the President tell Candy to "Get the transcript"? How did he know that Candy had the transcript of the Rose Garden speech? Had they discussed this prior to the debate? Is this why she is trying to distance herself from all of this?

Transcript of Presidential Debate, Tuesday, October 16, 2012 (Page 8 of 11)

CROWLEY: ... quickly to this please.
ROMNEY: I -- I think interesting the president just said something which -- which is that on the day after the attack he went into the Rose Garden and said that this was an act of terror.
OBAMA: That's what I said.
ROMNEY: You said in the Rose Garden the day after the attack, it was an act of terror.
It was not a spontaneous demonstration, is that what you're saying?
OBAMA: Please proceed governor.
ROMNEY: I want to make sure we get that for the record because it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror.
OBAMA: (directly to Crowley) Get the transcript. (How did he know there was a transcript that Crowley had with her? As she responded it appears that she was caught with a direct act of collusion with the President).
CROWLEY: It -- it -- it -- he did in fact, sir. So let me -- let me call it an act of terror...
OBAMA: Can you say that a little louder, Candy?
CROWLEY: He -- he did call it an act of terror. It did as well take -- it did as well take two weeks or so for the whole idea there being a riot out there about this tape to come out. You are correct about that.

How do these youngish wack-jobs compare with the Zetas, El Familia, and their co-conspirators such as Wachovia ???

Wachovia paid a $160-million fine for abetting drug operations. How many people were killed out of that one? The body count in Mexico is up over 50,000 so let's not pretend that these wack-job Islamicists are a comparable threat.

People who want to kill themselves for Allah don't give a xxxx about the American government or who is in the White House. And talking tough in a political speech is surely unlikely to deter a suicide.
Why hasen't this information gotten to the Amerisan public over our media? While our Home Land Security people are accusing vetrans and those apposed to abortion as possable terrorists, they are neglection to inform our citizens of the real threat to our country. Let's Wake Up America!
