    It’s a sad fact that many sue anyone and everyone for anythinng and everything. Let’s concentrate on educating ppl to the facts. Let’s teach them how to not fall prey to any commercial, news show, teacher, or preacher. The future is with teaching children to think for themselves and decide if what they are being told makes sense. Blind obedience is dangerous. Critical thinking is no longer the goal of teachers. Imagine how well our youth could deal with anything if they no longer had access to the internet, cell phones, etc., grocery stores, calculators, heck, indoor plumbing. Are your children and grandchildren equipped to deal with that?

    Talking words to be wary of. MAY have….followed up with the headline that will get public attention, become a talking point, many will miscontrue it to mean “guilty of”. Becoming the new “talking point” of supportors of the president. Watch for it. It’s now the norm for attacking any opponent.

    Bikerdogred, there is the fact that a governor did issue an order that Mormons could be legally killed in Missouri.

    Broper, I thought that Reid converted to the LDS faith. I am well acquainted with the community of Search Light, NV, his home town.

    I refuse to comply. I wil NOT engage in hatred when I disagree. LONG ago I tried it when I felt I had been injured, doesn’t matter why, it did’t work. I almost let it destroy my life. I had to seriously pray that the hatred would cease. Took quite awhile since I’m stubborn. Never again. I picture myself in the mind/soul of a person consummed by hate. No thank you, been there, done that.

    Ditto to everything you said, including that I’m a Roman Catholic. You said it much better than I could.

    Thank you for saying it so well. I am not LDS, but live among many who are. “My” bishop went door to door and asked ppl of any faith or none, what they could/would be able to do in the event of ANY emergency in the community. They left the papers, wished us well, and left. I have NEVER felt any pressure to join their faith.

    Many embrace hatred of things they know nothing of. it’s the “cool” thing to do. It’s akin to doing unspeakable things to others to post on Youtube, or say anonymously on the internet. To inhabit that mind/soul would seem to me as hell.You can never have happiness when hatred consumes you.

    I refuse to be consumed by hatred for a person or cause that differs from mine. That hatred will ultimately consume those that do. They will live their lives in misery and unhappiness, always blaming other ppl and things. Those who lose hatred and don’t believe in God will be happier. Hatred is a fatal disase that will kill you, either in real life, or it will deprive you of any happiness.

    There are some who will hate people of any faith that worships God. Most true people of faith recognize that in any religion, individuals (any human being regardless of faith or lack there of), make mistakes, ie., sin. No human being is perfect, we all make mistakes. The difference is that ppl of faith try to improve themselves. They try to live their lives to a higher standard, which helps them and their community. One cannot and should not engage in replaying to plain hatred, it is and always been with us. Nothing positive occurs.

    I was just waiting for the liberal media to unleash the anti-Mornon (LDS) tirade. Just a matter of time. I am not of that faith, but I do live in a state with a high population of that faith. They are good ppl who respect family values and work on that, and are patriots. They are great neighbors and protectors of the community regardless of faith. I remember when JFK ran, same issues raised then. Interesting the positions are now reversed.

    I disliked statistics in college, but it did teach me a great deal. Polls and charts utilize statistics, and statistics can be, and are, frequently skewed to produce the answer that is desired. Graphs that are often used to make a point start with a collection of statistical data. Polls, charts, and graphs that defy the reality of your life and the lives of your community mean nothing. They are nothing more than a commercial to induce you to accept the information presented.

    I don’t use any of those sites. ixquick is a good research engine. How nothing to do with how I vote.

    Seems like the Girl Scouts are now a feminist, pro-abortion organization. Adults have involved young girls in an agenda.

    I notice that the Girl Scouts haven’t been repeatedly sued like the Boy Scouts.

    It really is time to address the elephant in the room. Radical Islamist Terrorists now contol the world. I repeart, radical Islanst Terrorists, NOT all Muslims. The president said he his own book, paraphrasing here, he will support his Muslim brothers. Those might actually be some of the only true words in his books. He has proven by his own actions, that he will, in fact, side with those who oppose Isreal. He has snubbed their leader, never been there. England is hosting the olympics, and terrorist suspects carefully watched. It seem like only one group of ppl are the terrorists people and countries fear. I’m sure I’m now being considered a threat and may be silenced. This administration seems quite clear on where it’s priorities lie.

    If I belonged to any church that held that belief, I would leave. My church does not preach that as a gospel teaching, bible scripture, or any thing else that holds that belief. That would be my FORMER church.

    Reminds me of a movie that I saw called “Distinguished Gentleman”. Character was elected to a dead man’s seat because same name. Name recognition. BTW, good movie, but beware of filty language. Eddie Murphy. Enough said. lol

    Senator Hatch is now 78. If it should become necessary to have Govenor Herbert appoint someone to finish his term, Herbert was and is owned by teachers’ unions, local and national. Our last governor, who quit mid-term, was Jon Huntsman, Jr. He left to serve in the Obama administration, quit that job to run for president. I recently read that he now has a job doing something for a liberal organization.

    I’m a resident of Utah. I’m very sad that Sen. Hatch has been elected yet again. At one time, he was a good senator. I’ve written letters and called his local office and DC office many times. He is a perfect example of a career politician that began to believe that he was so important that it was outside the realm of possibility to not re-elect him. The communications I’ve received spent 80% of the time detailing how important he is, and implied that I couldn’t possibly understand how complex his job was, and that I just needed to trust him. The world has changed a great deal since 1976, he hasn’t. He’s 78, time to pass the baton.
