    It’s funny that he keeps mentioning how so many people are out of touch with “most people’s values”, when it’s Obama that is so out of touch with mine…. and most of the people that I know.

    You’ve gotta love it when a person like Andrea Mitchell talks about what represents “suburban housewives”, when she hardly fits the bill of someone that would know about such things.

    In fact, I think all of these pundits underscore one thing… that the left will try to tell you what’s good for you… whether they know or not. That’s the overriding concern. Shall I make decisions on my own behalf, or will I let someone else decide what’s best for me?

    I think it goes without saying that Obama has been very bad for the America that we all know. Maybe Romney will be bad, too, in the long run. But, at least there’s an “if” with Romney. There’s no doubt what will happen with Obama. Left to his own devices, he will decimate this country, our way of life, and the future liberty of our children.

    Don’t send your volunteers here. I’m not interested.

    Here’s the thing about Guantanamo…
    1. If he thought he could do what he wanted, but couldn’t, he was naive.
    2. If he knew he couldn’t do what he wanted, then he lied.

    The people hired her husband. If she wants to sit at home and do nothing, that’s ok. But, if she does do something, she needs to recognize that she is doing volunteer work and be proud of the contribution that she makes for no fee whatsoever. Her husband should be proud too. He’s always trying to get us to volunteer everything we have.

    About that note that the person put on his window:

    1. The government overspent on the roads and then misappropriated money that should’ve been used for upkeep. Don’t even get me started about bridges that are falling down in the absence of upkeep.
    2. The public schools tried to warp my mind and convince me of things that were patently untrue.
    3. I pay for my utilities and water, as I use them, and part of the money that I pay, goes for upkeep of the system.
    4. In point of fact, the taxes I and my forefathers paid were for the purpose of providing those things. The government didn’t pay for a damn thing. I did, you did, we did. What the government did was print even more than we gave them, and made the money I had left, worthless.

    “The spokesperson also noted voters requesting not to be contacted will be removed from the database.”

    What percentage of the US citizenry even has a “smartphone” and even knows that this is going on? I call bunk.

    Does anyone here even believe a single word out of Alcee’s mouth? If this person told me that the sky was blue, I’d walk outside to check. Just another political opportunist in search of a headline.

    I used to think it was all about the money. But, it’s not. It’s about the power that comes with the money.

    Who is Bob Beckel and why should I care what he says?

    Ask yourself this… They’re already making the accusation that he is a felon, with absolutely no proof. I’m pretty sure that the guy is not filing 1040-EZ. You already read that Gibb’s wants to know what “loopholes” he is using. Here’s the thing… loopholes aren’t illegal. Loopholes exist for two reasons: Congress and/or the IRS didn’t think through the legislation well enough OR they left themselves a way out of paying as much tax, kinda like they tend to exempt themselves from other legislation like drug tests.

    The guy released last years and the estimates for this year. I wouldn’t give them the bat to hit me with, either.

    I guess they just figure that, sooner or later, it’s going to be some conservative tea partier and then they’ll all pile on, clamoring for gun control, saying that they were right.

    When are they going to learn that bad people do bad things? You can’t find reason in an unreasonable act.

    How dare he, as a scientist, try to pretend that the entire earth climate operates on a schedule of even 50 years. He needs to go back to school, preferably a private school where they will teach him critical thinking instead of indoctrination into the latest thinking, and then come back with his opinion after he’s gotten a real education.

    Orrrrrr, the price of gold could be slightly depressed because it is so easy to purchase gold ETF’s, not realizing that the supply of paper, far outweighs the supply of physical.

    If you can’t feel it, you don’t own it. When that realization comes to more people, you will see just how little gold there really is… and how high the price can go.

    Freedom of association. Need more be said?

    If he personally has a problem with the Scouts and the way they do things, that’s fine. It is absolutely impossible to find a way to please all people, all the time. Such is life. Personally, I’m proud of the Scouts and the fine works they do, as well as the great things they teach to young boys, making great men of them. One of the best things that they are teaching is that it is not necessary to do away with your core beliefs, in order to prove that you are tolerant.

    You cannot exercise your rights, at the expense of the rights of another. Freedom of association does not preclude their right to live life as they see fit. But, precluding their freedom of association does keep the Scouts from living life as THEY see fit.

    Hmmmmm… lemme think about this… Temperature goes up a couple of degrees from non-anthropogenic global warming OR temperature goes up 1 million degrees from an Iranian nuke?

    Yeah. I’ll go with the natural process of climate change.

    Thank you. I’ve had enough of your opinions, Mr. Kerry. That’ll do. You can go away now. Don’t go away mad. Just go away. Still here? Go now.

    These days, if the parents don’t at least act as though they own the child, the government will step in and claim that they do. But, responsibility for care is not the same as ownership, and helping a child learn to make decisions for themselves is a part of parenting. When the responsibility for care is divided between two that have fundamental differences in opinion, it is unlikely that the case is going to have a happy ending for all involved. But, if the child was able to convince the judge that she was sincere and cognizant of the ramifications of her decision, I’d say that the judge made the best decision he could. It seems to have been the parents that were clouding the issue.

    People just don’t want racism and bigotry to go away.

    When some network aired the mini-series “Holocaust”, I think in the 1970′s or 80′s, they had just gotten to the point where Jews were being led to the gas chambers. When they went to commercial, the product was Easy-Off Oven Cleaner. Yeah. It was sick and it upset a lot of people. But, do you honestly believe that they did it on purpose? Give me a break…

    How many soup kitchens and food banks are run by atheist groups?

    I am wondering when cities will realize that hosting the Olympics is a bust, and not a boon?

    One cannot exercise their rights, at the expense of the rights of another. Be forewarned that if you express an opinion at odds with the majority of society, you are within your rights. But, some of the people you offend, may have your employment in their hands, and if you’re working in an “at will” state, it may be within their rights to terminate you. Freedom of speech is not without consequences of action.
