    An 18-year-old Marine recruit remained in jail on Wednesday, charged with threatening to stab his girlfriend over her choice for president, news partner NewsChannel 5 reported in its noon broadcast.

    The enlistee, Steven Scott Soper, of Lake Worth, became enraged Tuesday night when his 18-year-old girlfriend said she was leaving him -- and voting for John Kerry for president.

    Soper, who will enter the Marines as soon as he passes the GED test, solidly supports Bush. He allegedly told girlfriend Stacey Silheira, "You'll never live to see the election."

    He's a nut. A different one, also in Florida, tried to run over Kathleen Harris.

    It isn't right (PC) to attribute their individual emotional/mental problems to their party affliation.

    He's probably NOT going to be allowed to follow through on his military career now. You're not allowed to if you've been arrested, are you?

    Just being arrested shouldn't be enough - you should also be convicted.

    Did this guy pass the psych evaluation? Arming him doesn't seem like a really good idea.

    He could have passed the psych evaluation. Remember John Allen Muhammad?
