For Nancy, it meant kicking out a tenant. For others, it may mean standing by while someone is seized, harmed, or murdered.

It is worth noting that this story has not been picked up or echoed at all by US media, even foreign media.
Perhaps they, too, are considering whether it would be a good idea, or whether it would be more prudent to keep eyes down and mouth closed.
I can help them out there. It would definitely be more prudent.
As it will be more prudent for those who happen to learn that they, or a friend or relative, or neighbor, has been seized, exterminated, or just disappeared.
Like everything else, keeping out of trouble does have its trade-offs.
And like other decisions made by Americans, it would be discourteous to assume that such decisions are hastily made, without solemn consideration of the consequences.
Actions like Sep 11 do not happen in a vaccuum.
Long before those hijackers ever stepped foot on the planes the damage

Middle Eastern countries are so much more barbaric today and preAmercia than America can ever hope to be...America has only been around 230 years...who did you blame for everything before that Ductape? I am calling a Fatwa on your bullshit!
IMO - terrorist plain and simple. He is an Al queda operative who
should be put in a cage on gitmo Skinner
My favorite..."In Defense of Holocaust Deniers"
I always thought that "The Enemy Within" was just a metaphore for liberalism, that is, until I encountered Ductape Fatwa. He should be in an orange jumpsuit for sure.
peopleforchange.netductape is either a commie, al queda, or a deep cover mole
Tells you something about this asshole doesn't it. He's really serious.
I believe that DF is nothing but a Republican plant...
Ductape is a commie, a terrorist, and he drinks blood too. He drinks
Capitalist blood. He eats unborn babies too
Give me your address and I'll send you $20 and a thank-you note for taking your hatred elsewhere.
A terrorist with a sense of humor!
He ain't nuthin' but shit
inadequate, halfway house bullshit
You are a dumbass. Fuck you and your condescension about us "benighted sheeple." hamletta
Untruthful, damaging bullshit
no better than the neocons and no different than Timothy McVeigh
dailykos.coma turd in the punchbowl...if DF were Joe Hill he probably would have killed himself rather than get put to death.
A compost pile of fecundity
