I would like to give a quote from drug addict Rush Limbaugh

" If we had any good luck, Honduras would send some people here and help us get our government back. "

I wanted to look up the definition of treason. This applies. Secret Service needs to arrest him.

1. the offense of acting to overthrow one's government or to harm or kill its sovereign.
2. a violation of allegiance to one's sovereign or to one's state.
3. the betrayal of a trust or confidence; breach of faith; treachery.

1175–1225; ME tre(i)so(u)n < class="ital-inline">traïson < class="ital-inline">trāditiōn- (s. of trāditiō) a handing over, betrayal. See tradition

1. Treason, sedition mean disloyalty or treachery to one's country or its government. Treason is any attempt to overthrow the government or impair the well-being of a state to which one owes allegiance; the crime of giving aid or comfort to the enemies of one's government. Sedition is any act, writing, speech, etc., directed unlawfully against state authority, the government, or constitution, or calculated to bring it into contempt or to incite others to hostility, ill will or disaffection; it does not amount to treason and therefore is not a capital offense. 2. See disloyalty.
trea·son (trē'zən)
  1. Violation of allegiance toward one's country or sovereign, especially the betrayal of one's country by waging war against it or by consciously and purposely acting to aid its enemies.
  2. A betrayal of trust or confidence.

[Middle English, from Anglo-Norman treson, from Latin trāditiō, trāditiōn-, a handing over; see tradition.]


Trea"son\, n. [OE. tresun, treisun, traisoun, OF. tra["i]son, F. trahison, L. traditio a giving up, a delivering up, fr. tradere to give up, betray. See Traitor, and cf. Tradition.] 1. The offense of attempting to overthrow the government of the state to which the offender owes allegiance, or of betraying the state into the hands of a foreign power; disloyalty; treachery. The treason of the murthering in the bed. --Chaucer. Note: In monarchies, the killing of the sovereign, or an attempt to take his life, is treason. In England, to imagine or compass the death of the king, or of the queen consort, or of the heir apparent to the crown, is high treason, as are many other offenses created by statute. In the United States, treason is confined to the actual levying of war against the United States, or to an adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. 2. Loosely, the betrayal of any trust or confidence; treachery; perfidy. If he be false, she shall his treason see. --Chaucer. Petit treason. See under Petit.
Language Translation for : Treason
Spanish: traición,
German: der Verrat,
Japanese: 反逆

c.1225, from Anglo-Fr. treson, from O.Fr. traison (11c.; Fr. trahison), from L. traditionem (nom. traditio) "a handing over, delivery, surrender" (see tradition). O.Fr. form influenced by the verb trair "betray." In old English law, high treason is violation by a subject of his allegiance to his sovereign or to the state; distinguished from petit treason, treason against a subject, such as murder of a master by his servant.

Rush Limbaugh also recently said that Obama's policies are what caused South Carolina Governor Sanford to commit adultery (ignoring the fact that the adultery predates the Obama administration)! IF one were to try the illegally pill-popping douchebag for treason, odds are good he'd be found too mentally incompetent to stand trial, or even Not Guilty By Reason of Insanity.

I just wish these so-called people would ever realize how their words effect people. And their words inspire violence.

I mean really I thought you couldn't threaten the President even if you didn't mean it.
