  • Today is the 1st anniversary of the Upper Big Branch mine explosion in West Virginia. I expect they are referring to that.

  • Sounds like typical violent rhetoric from the left...AGAIN!! Glad to hear they're taking it down a notch! (massive eye roll)

  • Remember it isn't violent rhetoric when the "left' speaks... Civility only mattered when there was someone on the "right' to insinuate/blame.... Their hypocrisy is humorous....

  • Even after watching the 54 second video I'm pretty sure they are talking about thier own dead bodies.

    i.e. "This reform will happen over my dead body" or "You'll have to pry this protest sign from my cold, dead hands".

  • I've heard the expression 'over MY dead body'. I've used the expression (and meant it).

    That expression was NOT used in the video. I'd like to see more, or read more ~ but ~ based only on what I heard in that video, it sounds as though they are definitely volunteering bodies other than their own.

    If that is the case, the statement should be treated, and prosecuted, as a threat, the instant something happens. My personal response would be something along the lines of pelting them all with a few beanbags (or superballs from paint ball guns hehe).
