Has the FBI been investigated yet for possibly setting this guy up and then catching him?
They do like to manufacture terrorists so as to catch them later....just in time.
The guy was sending texts to the wrong number, the "wrong number" got concerned and contacted the authorities.
Just watched a segment on Fox.
So the only reason he got caught was because he fat-fingered a text.

Cold war was easy, we knew who the bad guys were and where the threat was coming from, now a days we have no clue where its coming from.
Back then they still had rules, yea they threatened the end of the world but by in large you had lines you didn't cross, now adays it seems like anything goes, Kind of like the difference between the mob and the drug king pins.
They say he wanted to draw attention to his belief in "sortition" - a political theory that advocates the random selection of government officials.

That's a view that belongs to a period prior to the election as leader, of a man who favours the every man for himself approach, and the total demolition of decorum and standards of etiquette.
Those who voted Trump, created a scenario in which the political correctness that kept people from thinking "This talking thing is not working any more, better act instead", is now frowned upon. This is the inevitable result.

Question? How many head of cattle do you have? I assume you own and operate a large ranch in order to be capable of shoveling that much bovine excrement per post.
Honestly, your post reminds me of what someone might write who spends their spare time pulling the wings off flies and laughing at them. Sorry, I'm not a fly, and I don't have wings; go spread your filthy hateful diatribes to someone who cares.
