Democratic Congressmen have now been targeted with death threats and other forms of intimidation. The gas line at the house of a Virginia Congressman's brother's home was slashed this morning (presumably the wrong house was targeted). Steny Hoyer said in a news conference that over 10 elected representatives have been threatened. There was reference to Sarah Palin's Facebook page where she put cross-hairs of guns on the states of Democratic Congressmen and used words like "Reload." Some of us always knew that she was a dirtbag. With this comes proof that she is worse - this is an inherently intolerant and bigoted creature.

What these people want and desire more than anything is control. As no person any of us has control over many things we learn to adapt but these folks cannot and they take this rage out egged on by the people who see it as a sport.

It makes no difference what the issue itself. Any human is capable of this and it's good to be careful IMO.

This is a defining moment in history in my opinion. From the bombers of schools in Iraq to the monsters named the taliban preventing girls going to school to the people spitting on Congressmen and threatening them with death. They are all the same STUCK in control.

The thing so far that keeps it in check here is the rule of law, something that the current health care debate used to succeed. It is an ominous thing to watch and thank heaven that we live in a country where the rule of law is the rule.

I believe that you got it backwards. Just listen to one of your leaders speak of control

When you speak so down about the unfortunate, then I recognize that there isn't any hope for such people like yourself.

Tell me, what kind of people travel to the U.S. for healthcare? Canadians? Sure, why not, I'll tell you how that happens, Canadians with money(alot of money) will surpass the canadian health care to get something faster in the U.S. But you need to understand, these are canadians with money and want something done fast.

Now, as long as you are bringing that up, why is that Sarah Palin was running into Canada, from Alaska taking advantage of our healthcare system?
People from around the world travel to the US for healthcare, including a lot of Canadians. Even the head of one of your provinces traveled to Florida recently for heart surgery.

Re-read all of my posts and show me one single instance when I spoke against the unfortunate, and then blabber some more about it.

Especially in Alaska, there is absolutley no need for the military to be there anymore. The Cold War ended many many years ago. It's just a huge drag on the American economy.
Tell that to Obama and the Democrats. The Republicans are a minority in Congress.

Obama is the Commander in Chief now. What is he waiting for?

Yes, genius, those who are rich enough to travel to the US, do.

How come you don't tell us about the increasing number of Americans who are traveling to Thailand and India for heart surgeries, for knee replacements, etc because they can't afford it here? I bet Fox News didn't tell you that.

But you rightwingers will throw another hissy fit if he suggested paring the military budget. Ms Pee will put more targets on her Facebook page. You will claim Obama is destroying the military.
