Hello everyone.

I’m sorry I had to drop out like I did, but we are dealing with a personal crisis on the home-front and I have not had the time nor energy to deal with the blog.

I will be back, I just don’t know when.

Don’t let this country go to hell while I’m gone.

Media Matters Inciting Violence?

27 01 2011

Every clear thinking American knows that the Soros backed Media Matters is nothing but trash. However, when trash becomes dangerous it needs to be buried in a land-fill. Below is a story that has so many things wrong with it that I won’t even need to point them out to you. Knowing that my readers are a smart bunch, I will let all of you pick out your favorite lie and hateful rhetoric, but I do want to put a small bug in your ear. As you read this piece, don’t you get the distinct impression that they are wanting their readers to hate, and possibly hurt, anyone that calls themselves a Tea-Partier or anyone that is against Illegal Immigration?


When the politically fueled murder of a 9-year-old girl in Arizona is NOT national news

January 26, 2011 7:27 pm ET by Will Bunch

All of America continues to mourn the unbelievably tragic loss of Christina Green, the 9-year-old granddaughter of former Phillies’ manager Dallas Green who was killed, along with five adults, by a murderous madman trying to assassinate Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson. The sight of Christina’s parents and brother in the gallery at the State of the Union address last night is more proof that the killing of such an innocent continues to resonate with the American people.

You’ve heard all about Christina Green, but do you know about Brisenia Flores? Like Christina, Brisenia was 9 years old, and she also lived in Pima County, Arizona, not far from Tucson. Like Christina, she was gunned down in cold blood by killers with strange ideas about society and politics.

But there are also important differences. While the seriously warped mind of Christina’s Tucson murderer, Jared Lee Loughner, is a muddled mess, the motives of one of Brisenia’s alleged killers– a woman named Shawna Forde — are pretty clear: She saw herself as the leader of an armed movement against undocumented immigrants, an idea that was energized by her exposure to the then-brand-new Tea Party Movement. But unlike the horrific spree that took Christina’s life, the political murder of Brisenia and her dad (while Brisenia’s mom survived only by pretending to be dead) has only received very sporadic coverage in the national media. That’s a shame, because it’s an important story that illustrates the potential for senseless violence when hateful rhetoric on the right — in this case about undocumented immigrants — falls on the ears of the unhinged.

This week, Forde is on trial on Tucson, and the details are horrific:

As her mother tells it, 9-year-old Brisenia Flores had begged the border vigilantes who had just broken into her house, “Please don’t shoot me.”

But they did — in the face at point-blank range, prosecutors allege, as Brisenia’s father sat dead on the couch and her mother lay on the floor, pretending that she too had been killed in the gunfire.

Why did Forde, said to be the “mastermind,” and the other alleged killer, Jason Bush, carry out this heinous crime? Prosecutors allege that Forde cooked up a scheme to rob and murder drug dealers, all to raise money for the fledgling, anti-immigrant border patrolling group called Minutemen American Defense, or MAD.

I wrote about Forde and her warped “politics” in my recent book, The Backlash. I noted that in April 2009 — as first reported by Stephen Lemons of the Phoenix New Times, an authority on nativist, right-wing groups in Arizona — Forde was amped up after attending her first Tea Party on the steps of the state capitol in Phoenix.

“This is the time for all Americans to join organizations and REVOLT!!!,” she wrote in a blog post that was retrieved from the Google cache by Lemons. “Refuse to be part of a system only designed to enslave you and your children. Times will be worse before they get worse. *Say no to illegal immigration* Lock and Load, Shawna Forde.”

It was this same month that Forde and her ragtag Minutemen band allegedly approached drug dealers in southern Arizona with a scheme to kill and rob their rivals for cash. One of Forde’s goals, allegedly, was to buy a 40-acre property near the border that she intended for her group to use as a base for raids — which she called “Delta One Operations” — on undocumented Mexicans crossing the border.

Forde and her co-conspirator Bush — who reportedly has ties to the white supremacist Aryan Nation — broke into the home of 29-year-old Raul Flores, Brisenia’s dad, on May 30, 2009, or just six weeks after Forde’s online call for a political revolt. As related this week at Forde’s ongoing murder trial:

According to testimony, Bush shot Flores, then Gonzalez. Gonzalez was hit in the shoulder and leg and slumped to the floor. She testified that she played dead as she heard Bush pump more bullets into her husband as Brisenia woke up.

“Why did you shoot my dad?” the girl asked, sobbing, according to Gonzalez’s testimony. “Why did you shoot my mom?”

Gonzalez said she heard Bush slowly reload his gun and that he then ignored Brisenia’s pleas and fired.

In the wake of the Tucson shootings earlier this month, there was a lot of talk about hateful rhetoric and violent imagery in American politics, and there was a lot of pushback when it emerged that the gunman in that case, Loughner, didn’t follow mainstream politics, just some extreme crackpot theories on the Internet. But what happened to Brisenia Flores is different. She lost her life because a couple of unhinged crackpots absorbed all that “lock and load” blather in our atmosphere and actually did something about it. We should not be shocked. But we do need to figure out how to make sure that never again will the life of innocent girl end because of this political madness.

And just as we will never forget Christina Green, America needs to always remember Brisenia Flores.

I’m starting to see a shift in attitudes about illegals taking American jobs so employers had better smarten up, fast!


House GOP announces program against illegal immigration

By Fredrick Kunkle

A group of House Republicans announced plans Tuesday to put forward a package of at least 16 bills aimed at illegal immigrants, including bills that would revoke the driving licenses of deportees, block illegal immigrants from attending public colleges and universities, and require the state to begin tracking the number of undocumented children in public schools.

“America is a nation of immigrants,” said Del. L. Scott Lingamfelter (R-Prince William), who is leading the task force appointed by House Speaker William J. Howell (R-Stafford). “We are also nation founded on the rule of law, the right to possess private property and a common American identity.”

Lingamfelter said state action was needed because the federal government has “completely failed” to protect its borders.

The package unveiled Tuesday includes similar bills – HB2332 and HB1430 — that would require authorities to ascertain the immigration status of anyone “taken into custody” to make sure that the check would apply to those who were arrested by police but released on bail or bond before being taken to jail. Del. C. Todd Gilbert (R-Shenandoah) would require parents who enroll children in public school to disclose their immigration status and require the state to tally the numbers. Del. Christopher Peace (R-Hanover) would prohibit illegal aliens from enrolling in public higher education institutions. Other bills would force all public contractors, employers with more than 15 employees and all local governments to enroll in the E-Verify Program to ascertain the status of newly hired employees.

Del. David B. Albo (R-Fairfax) said that although the group was motivated by a recent, controversial law in Arizona that gave police sweeping new powers to inquire of people’s immigration status, the final package represented a more moderate approach that should pass constitutional muster. But even Republicans acknowledge that few, if any, have a chance in the Democratically controlled Senate.

“It’s mostly filling in loopholes,” Albo said.

Virginia already denies driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants and all taxpayer-paid services except those mandated by law, such as public education or emergency medical care.

“Virginia has passed some of the most aggressive measures against undocumented immigrants, yet it never seems to be enough for these guys,” said Del. Scott A. Surovell (D-Mount Vernon). “I find it fascinating that all these small-government conservatives are advocating expensive, big-government intrusions into duties the federal government already does.”

The Republicans backing the immigration bills rejected criticism that their proposals could fan racial tensions or sacrifice the GOP’s future prospects for immediate political gain. Latinos, for example, as the nation’s largest minority, add almost half a million voters to the rolls every year, as Surovell pointed out during a speech on the floor of the House during Tuesday’s session.

Lingamfelter also dismissed analyses that suggest that the GOP could be sacrificing long-term viability for short-term success.

“I’m proud to be part of a party that believes in the rule of law,” he said.

Members of the caucus believe that even if the bills did not pass – and at least some will certainly face long odds in the Democratic-controlled Senate — they hoped that their introduction in the General Assembly would make the federal government take note and do more to enforce existing immigration laws. The message, as Lingamfelter put it, would be: “We expect you to get off your keester and get busy and enforce the laws of this nation.”

More insights to our illegals problem.


Singing the same sad old song

Guest Columnist

Sounding presidential for the first time since his election, Barack Obama recently delivered a moving plea for moderation and civility in public discourse. Unfortunately, his choir didn’t heed the sermon.

Obama had barely finished his outstanding oration when we heard the same tired melodies being rehearsed on both sides of the choir loft. Despite a universal acknowledgement of the president’s eloquence in the wake of the Tucson massacre, we heard this from the left: Palin bad, Limbaugh bad, Tea Party bad, their fault, their fault, their fault! And the cry from the right seemed to be: They started it, teacher. They threw spitballs at our guy for eight years and said threatening stuff to us, so why shouldn’t we throw some rocks at them now?

This irresponsible argument is over which side’s invective was responsible for the actions of a homicidal lunatic. As if anyone’s invective could have caused a bloody nightmare in a twisted mind that needed no such inspiration.

There is one thing that both sides may have rightly pointed a collective finger at in this debate — not because it caused the Safeway slayings but because it is detrimental to our country in any case — and that is the poisoned political atmosphere in the country at large and in the state of Arizona in particular. What few politicians and pundits appear to have focused on, however, is one of the most likely reasons for that hostility.

Consider Arizona. The state is suffering from a jobless rate of well over 9 percent while illegal aliens continue to come over the border in an unabated flood. The federal government has been unable to make a dent in the first problem and seems uninterested in seriously attacking the second.

Think about the Arizona citizens who lack employment, or about those who are worried about losing the jobs to which they are still able to cling (jobs, that is, not guns) in a persistently bad economy. Think about Arizonans who worry about feeding their children and keeping their homes. And there they are, these American citizens, watching foreigners — illegal aliens — who are so worried about feeding their own children in their own country that they risk their lives to cross the border and compete for scarce wages in the United States.

One can sympathize with people who will take great risks to feed their kids. But maybe, in more than a few cases, those American citizens are also seeing armed criminals smuggling narcotics across the border to sell to American kids.

Yes, think about Arizonans who see turmoil, gang warfare, beheadings and mass murder across that nearby ill-guarded border and fear what new terrors may be exported by some illegals to the USA.

What response do they get from Washington? They see an attack on their state for trying to end the problem that Washington itself does not solve. They see their president and their Congress invite the Mexican president to Washington to attack their state for treating undocumented aliens the way Mexico treats undocumented aliens on its own soil.

Is it not understandable that some people are angry in Arizona, that tempers are frayed and political outrage results in overheating?

And is it not also understandable — likely — that a madman might commit multiple murders in Tucson without reference to any such factors outside his own twisted mind?

If that is so, then it leaves us with two issues still to be addressed. Unfortunately, they are the same two issues that arise after every such bloody episode in the history of our society. Which is to say: much too often.

The first issue: Why are obvious lunatics allowed to walk around loose in the streets until they commit all-too-predictable murders? Why are known nuts free to wreak gory havoc in schools, post offices, public transportation? Think about all the similar episodes of the past. Google them if you can’t remember the names. You will see that after almost every such horrible event, we find ourselves reading the comments of family, friends, associates in the news media — and their comments are always similar: Oh, yes, he was acting strangely. Oh, yes, we were afraid of her. Oh, yes, they were all saying strange and threatening things.

The Army rejected the latest shooter for narcotics use and apparently never told law enforcement. His college kicked him out because it feared him, and the educators did nothing to take him out of society for his welfare and our safety. And so a madman shot a congresswoman, killed a federal judge, murdered an innocent child. Could it have been prevented?

True, we cannot have a society in which any amateur plays psychiatrist and has the power to curtail an individual’s freedom on the basis of inexpert opinion.

And yet… And yet…

And then the second question: Why is a madman allowed to purchase and use a weapon that has only one logical use: rapid-fire mass murder? The legendary gun lobby argues that if guns are banned, good people will not be able to buy weapons for their own protection, and only bad people will have the guns. It may be so.

And yet… And yet…

If you believe that it is so, then answer this: When Jared Loughner aimed at Gabrielle Giffords and all the others, when he pulled the trigger at a Tucson supermarket spraying hot lead all around, where the hell were all those good people with guns? Who drew a weapon and fired back at him to stop the bloodbath? Check the news reports. We see no signs of those good people, no signs of those good guns at all. There wasn’t even a cop in the crowd.

The killing stopped only when the shooter stopped to reload and was tackled by a few brave people. All of them unarmed.

This particular article almost points out a problem that many employers have, but like many in the Mainstream Media, they never go the whole ten yards. Yes, employers should NOT knowingly hire illegals. However, and I know from experience, when someone brings you all the proper documentation saying that they are legal and you hire them, why should the employer get fined? Illegals can purchase very official looking documents that are exact duplicates of the real deals. So how is the employer suppose to know? They make a big deal in this article about how Obama has been fining more employers than the previous administration, but I have to wonder if its just another attack by the Obama administration on Capitalism in America.


Immigration reform should include national ID cards

  • January 20th, 2011 12:50 pm ET

The White House has created a new agency to combat illegal immigration that’s long overdue. The Employment Compliance Inspection Center will be an audit office designed to “pore over the I-9 employee files” and make sure that workers are the country legally. In other words, it targets the the thing that attracts illegals to the United States: Jobs, and the business that provide them.

Opponents claim that these “silent raids” are not only invasive but brutal to business. Of course, it won’t be brutal if you follow the law. The inspectors will show up, you’ll be compliant and they’ll go away. Of course, if you’re breaking the law and hiring illegals, it will cause problems, and that can be brutal. The solution is simple: Don’t hire illegals.

Actually, the administration has been stepping up this process with scant notice. Since Obama took office, fines against employers for illegal hirings have jumped tenfold, going from $700,000 in 2008 to $7 million in 2010.

More enforcement against employers hiring illegals is a far smarter and more efficient use of our tax dollars than spending it on placebos like a wall or more border security. Border security is fine, and it’s important, but it doesn’t address the problem of why illegals come to this country. They come here for jobs. Stop providing the jobs and they won’t have any good reason to come here. It’s a simple supply and demand equation.

However, simultaneously, the guest worker program has to be revamped and modernized to meet the needs of industries Americans refuse to work in. Sorry, but Americans are not applying for jobs in the hotel and domestic industry, or in agriculture. Ask any farmer in California, Arizona, Texas, Oregon and Washington. Kids don’t want to work the fields, something old timers will tell you they did when they were young, and even in a recession, growers had trouble hiring American citizens to harvest produce. Not only won’t American citizens do it, they don’t know how to do it. Picking crops is not a ham-handed exercise; it requires knowledge and skill.
Construction is a different story. Many a laborer will tell you they lost the job to illegal immigrants, immigrants who are skilled at these tasks, but who are here illegally, and as long as there are Americans willling to do that work, hiring them should always take precedence.
But builders like hire the cheaper help because it helps make them competitive, as in, we citizens want the lowest bid. Illegals help contractors offer you that, but that’s an area where many skilled American laborers can, would and should work, and American consumers should pay that price than hire an illegal day laborer. American consumers, however, are the largest single employer of day labor in this country, according to studies done by UCLA and the Pew Research Center.
One problem for employers, however, is identification. Stories are plentiful of employers who can’t ferret out forged documents. The solution here is to develop and implement an e-verify/national ID card with embedded biometric data but that proposal has met resistance at both the local and federal level. Even in states that require employers to use e-verify, like Arizona, the vast majority of business owners don’t bother. They say it’s flawed.
All the more reason why a national identity card should be part of any immigration reform package.
Two polls from last year shed some light on this matter. Both McClatchy-Ipsos and the Pew Research Center set out to take the national pulse on Arizona’s controversial new immigration law. In each poll, more than six in 10 Americans supported the law. More fascinating: In each poll, roughly seven in 10 said they wouldn’t mind if police stopped them to ask for proof of citizenship, and two-thirds supported police detaining people who can’t.
Even among Democrats, who were evenly split over the Arizona law, nearly two-thirds supported the law’s provision requiring people to produce documents verifying legal status and 55 percent supported detaining those who couldn’t.
Would these same people support a new, national ID card for American workers?
Last April, Senate Democrats introduced an immigration reform proposal that included a provision requiring all legal U-S workers to have an employment verification ID card within five years, complete with name, photograph, birth date, Social Security number and embedded biometric data that can be connected only to the worker (like fingerprints or a retina scan). It would be phased in, beginning with industries that typically rely on illegal-immigrant labor, and issued to workers only when they next changed jobs.
That would certainly make a cop’s job easier when asking for proof of citizenship, but that’s not even the intent. The intent is solely to prevent employers from hiring illegal immigrants. We often say, if we didn’t hire them, illegals wouldn’t come here. But we do hire them. The card proposes making that process more difficult by making it easier to verify authorized workers.
For some, of course, having a genetic marker like a retina scan on any form of ID card starts to get Brave New World creepy. The ACLU argues that it’s an infringement on individual privacy rights; conservatives worry about more big government.
Neither of these arguments really makes sense. Actually, the concept could reduce the cost of government by shifting the focus from individuals to employers, who would be required to electronically check and verify an applicant’s eligibility via the ID card, which would be issued by the Social Security Administration. No police raid would be necessary at a plant that can’t hire illegal immigrants.
What about privacy?
Please! We’re the nation on Facebook, YouTube, Google and Shmoogle. We use Mapquest and GPS, and track packages delivered by UPS. We’ve done anything and everything to get on television, including a show called “Big Brother.” Post a comment to any website and rest assured, paranoid reader: “They” can probably find you. We don’t want privacy; we want attention.
Just look at all the identification in your wallet: A driver’s license, credit cards, insurance cards, a Social Security card – more than enough plastic for the government to find you if they wanted to, yet, none of these cards has led down a slippery slope toward some sort of electronic police state. Indeed, there’s practical sense in having those metrics combined into a single ID card, but the legislative measure didn’t even proposeg that; it’s just proposing a form of employment enforcement.
If there’s one place where you’re supposed to prove you are who you say you are, it’s when you apply for a job. And after you’ve exaggerated your accomplishments on your résumé, you still have to present your Social Security card. So why not refer to this biometrically digitized upgrade as Social Security Card 2.0? Is that any more intrusive than background checks, credit reports and drug tests?
No one is saying this card would be a magic bullet. It won’t completely eliminate the cash economy, and the sheer scale of implementing the program would be challenging. But building walls, hiring more border guards and arresting those here illegally only focuses on keeping people out. It doesn’t address the root of the problem: why they come in.
In the past year, the number of illegal immigrants has dropped from 12 million to 10.8 million, according to the Department of Homeland Security. Remittances –the amount of money sent home by Mexicans working abroad– dropped 12 percent in the first quarter of 2010 compared with a year ago, according to the Bank of Mexico. Why? The recession made it tougher to find jobs in the United States.
A technologically enhanced ID card would make it tougher still. We’re talking about a fundamental form of identification intended for a fundamental purpose in society – getting a job. Ensuring the accuracy of such identification is a good thing, not a bad thing.
If the majority of Americans truly are comfortable with being required to show proof of citizenship to an inquiring cop, why would we be any less comfortable with the idea of a modernized, digitized, tamper-proof Social Security card if it cuts down on the hiring of illegal immigrants?

In Honor Of Dr. King

17 01 2011

Someone asked me not long ago if I thought race relations had improved in the United States since the 60’s. I said absolutely yes, but with reservations as to how they are ‘right now’.

Presently, our half black half white president has been so divisive that its very difficult to have an adult conversation about race relations with those of a different color unless they share your ideological values. So my idea for today is to celebrate Dr. Kings legacy without mention of how the president plays into this. I will let the Al Sharptons of the world distort todays celebration for their own questionable agendas by simply ignoring them.

Instead I would like to ask people to read the Conservatives Pledge On Racism . The Pledge can be found here on this blog, or go to the official site to have your name added to the official roll. Go here…

Dr. Kings death was a travesty, his legacy a gift to our nation.


Obama’s Communist Connection

16 01 2011

Please make sure you send this around to everyone you know. The info is valuable and all Americans need to know about it.

Just as Glenn Beck does when he get’s into Teacher mode (for the record… when Glenn gets into Teacher mode he is incredible. He should do a series of History lessons to be shown in our public schools, or at the very least shown in private schools and at home for the home-schooled children. He would be very effective because the kids would find him entertaining while learning true American history) I to would like to present some info that may help put together more of the Communist Party/Obama puzzle. What you will learn is more verifiable and intriguing connections to Obama’s Communist leanings, if not heritage!

First a little background… This morning we stayed home instead of going to Church (deciding to go instead to the evening services may have been divine intervention). Our decision to stay home this morning is the reason why I am writing this piece. While eating a late breakfast I turned on our TV. Not wanting to hear any hard and potentially depressing news while eating, I let the TV channel land on C-Span2 where it stayed for the next hour.

What you are going to learn from this video may not be new, but it is at least another verified investigation into the Communist Party and their effect on American politics. The Obama connection with them is just a bonus. This video is a little over an hour long, but is worth every minute. I would also suggest that people buy this guys book. Have fun learning about real American history…

Anyone Out There Tonight?

13 01 2011

I swore I was not going to watch the service tonight because I did not want to listen to the president. Instead I watched a movie with my family. The movie ended at 11:00 pm so just out of habit I put on the late show of O’Reilly.

Lo and behold it was a repeat of the services held earlier tonight. I was about to turn the TV off when I noticed people going up to Nancy Pelosi wanting to take pictures with her. That got my attention so I started to watch to see what was going to happen. Within seconds of that here comes Obama and his wife towards their seats in the front row with others such as the Aide to Gabrielle that may have saved her life. As I watched my ears started to bleed, not litterally. Did anyone else notice that some of the crowd were acting as if they were at a College Basketball Game during the Final Four. The cheering and clapping and hollering was beyond classless. I turned the TV off at that point.

Or am I being to sensitive?


The Left Is Over

12 01 2011

I’m about to share something I copied from the huffpo, where they claim they have a more centrist view than a place like the Daily-Kos. I want you to pay very close attention to the two words following “All Americans need…”.

HUFFPOST SUPER USERholiday2010 48 minutes ago (1:01 AM)

All Americans need thought reform, whether Dems or Reps, it is important to realize that all political discussions should focus on what is best for the country, not left or right agendas.

Considering what this country is going through right now may I suggest all Conservatives and clear thinking people go out and buy as many fire-arms as you can. My reason is two-fold. We may be forced to defend this country very soon from the likes of those that want “THOUGHT REFORM”. And we need to keep weapons out of the hands of the crazies on the left, so we need to buy them all up.

God help us.


More HuffPo Sickness

11 01 2011

The Huffington Post has a story about how sales of Glock hand guns have spiked in the last two days. killer in Tucson used a Glock, so the Huffpo is trying to make some dumb-ass connection to nut-case gun users buying up Glocks because the killer used one. One poster saw through the BS and did a little digging…

I saw this postbefore sitting down to dinner. Afterwards I called a friend of mine that owns a gun store about 3 miles from me. I asked his opinion about thisstory and he told me two things to keep in mind.

One. “Gun sales of everything have sky-rocketed since early yesterday”. My friend was telling me this over his cell phone while he was clearing out a corner of his storage facility where his merchandise is kept safely. He was at his warehouse because in the past two days he has practically sold out his entire store and needed to re-stock fast.

Two. He pointed out the name of the gun stores in the above story is “Glockmeister”, so of course they would be selling a lot of Glocks, its what they sell. They are just like every other gun shop in the country that have guns flying off the shelves. They only stand out for this story because they sell the brand name that the killer used.

I then asked him why he thought gun sales were so crazy. His statement took me back, but it made sense. He said… “People are not stupid and have been hearing the reaction from the left so people are arming themselves for the riots to come”. Thanks Jared, and thank you liberals, you may actually get your revolution now. I hope you are proud of yourselves!

Progressives Are Hate

11 01 2011

I know that’s a heck of a claim, but unfortunately its true. Below are a few comments I copied in less than an hours time.

These comments came from The Daily Kos and the Huffington Post. But first watch this…

Comments to follow. Keep in mind that there are 100’s of articles or opinions posted on the HuffPo and D Kos, and each one of them are filled with hatred similar to what I copied. Some were too vile and disgusting to include. Considering many of the articles/opinions have over 13,000 comments so I did some rough math and came up with the astounding number of 112,000,000 (one-hundred-twelve-million). That’s the rough average of the amount of STUPID and/or HATE FILLED comments since Saturday night by the pigs on the left!

Right now the political right is the greatest threat to American democracy….more so than communism and foreign terrorism (if foreign terrorism ever was). When you reduce the Right’s response to the lowest common denominator you find it is about power, the corporate elite, the “money power,” and guns. Beck et. al are the recruiters for those who carry out the dirty deeds of their monied masters.

Free Speech, and Capitalism have run amuck.
They will destroy America if they are not stopped.

Does anyone else enjoy irony? At the bottom of this comments page, HP has a link to a site called!

I remember a time when violence and war wasn’t seen as “cool”, when guns and war toys didn’t have much of market, when diversity was welcomed and Peace and Love were the mantras at rallies.

RW doesn’t believe in Constitution. They believe in their own vitriol. That is why they are so eager to change Constitution to fit their vitriolic needs.

Spin all you want,the vitriol you speak of is manifested in violence on the right.Please don’t mix apples and oranges,you can pretend it’s the same vitriol,but you know it’s not.How many outright threats do you see from the left.NO,you and yours own this madman,you and your ilk created him.Don’t try and soften the truth with mumbo jumbo.

It is especially important to note the “government is bad (dysfunctional, evil, etc.)” narrative that is the mantra of the republican party. It is correctly traced to Reagan. My question is, if they think government is so awful, why do they always want to run it? If they take over the government to destroy it, there will be nothing left for them to run. Then again, why apply logic to their motives?

I’ve lived through too much of this:

JFK, RFK, MLK, Medgar Evars, Harvey Milk, George Moscone, All Democrats targeted by Republicans.

Each shooting dropping you further into despair, until you were ready to give it all up.

And many of us did. As a result we got Nixon, Reagan, and Bush.

This time I’m not giving up. I don’t expect any of you will either.

Today I have the Daily Kos community. Back then not much.

So it’s much better today. Much easier to organize and fight back. And to point out where “they” have said things that they would like to take back but can’t. And to hold them accountable.

on the streets of America, or on my campus, the same way my classmates were getting killed in Vietnam. But I never thought we’d be going through this horrible sh*t all over again 40 years later.

I haven’t given up, either, but I’ve lost a little juice over the decades and need some reinforcements from the younger generation.

You are right when you say we must hold them accountable. We have seen, written and read much about Palin today, rightly so, IMHO, I also believe we must scream from the rooftops about the others who should also be held accountable. we must not forget all the vitriol that is spewed by Rush, faux news, too many repubs to be named here.

We must not let these others off the hook.


Never did the statement, “what goes around, comes around” ring more true now that this tragedy has made it’s way to the doorstep of one Sarah Palin who over the course of the past several years has so foolishly done more than her share to gin up the extremist elemernts with her gun related inneundos, the targeting of Democratic candidates, and the rest of her highly senseless inflamitory remarks.

Your publicist prepared statement is too little and too late, Mrs. Palin! You should have stayed under your rock for this one!

Hey Sarah, praying is not the same as taking responsibility. Let’s see if you can man-up and take some responsibility for your wrongdoing or whether you’re just a total irresponsible shirker.

Rate wing talk radio that feeds on the fears of many Americans as well as Ms. Palin who neither controlds the English language well enough to speak in more moderate and in more nunaced terms have much to do with this tragedy. Words have power and so do symbols. In her world, every critical thinker becomes an ” elitist” or part of the country that ” needs to be eliminated. I have the privilege to live on the California coast and am at least thankful locally that we abhor such speech and the deeds that it could incote in a frightened and unstable person.
Simply stop and be for once patriotic!

Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Rush and the other tea baggers who have been preaching hate and violence must face the fact that their words and actions are forever preserved on the internet. No more lies or lack of responsibility, we all know what you have said and done. You are not the direct murderer, but your words and maps with rifle targets did contribute to the violence. Words can be violent. It is a time for you all to stop and for us who are liberal to also watch what we say. Didn’t your mother ever teach you, if you do not have something kind or constructive to say, don’t talk?

If I was one of those representatives living in the states of AR, TN, or IN with the RED crosshairs mark, I’d be scared sh*tless.

Palin prays for the victims huh? This from a woman who enjoys the fun of shooting innocent, defenseless animals with high powered rifles from safe positions in helicopters and hides. Most leaders direct rather than participate in actions – especially in violence – and use rhetoric and analogy to encourage their followers. OK Mama Grisly – you didn’t actually suggest killing the Governor but you gotta live with the knowledge you created the background noise that encouraged a follower to do it. maybe why you pulled your website – kinda too little too late though ain’t it? My prayer for you – that you are finished, washed up and consigned to a silly footnote in our great nations history!

“Came from” is the operative phrase. This blood of patriots horse$**t has got to stop. It’s 2011. I’d like to think we’ve all evolved over the years. However, I’m guessing evolution isn’t really part of your vocabulary, or sarah palin’s for that matter.

Palin’s crosshairs map shocked the conscience of all civilized persons. That it was apparently unrelated to this shooting incident doesn’t mean it was o.k.

Interesting how Palin had a list (with map and Gifford’s name) of people to be “gunned down” and is now trying to condemn the shootings by saying she meant it all “figuratively.” When will these radicals learn that their words are taken seriously by nut cases? I find it very hard to believe Palin didn’t get exactly what she called for. It’s like Scott Lively going to Uganda to campaign for the death penalty for gays and then saying he didn’t mean they should be executed.

Well I DO think that Sarah Palin is directly responsible for the murders in Arizona. And I disagree with Keith Olberman and others who say that she only created an atmosphere in which such violence might take place. When she put those crosshairs up there she was inciting her core audience to violence, a majority of whom believe that violent action may be necessary to preserve (their idea of) freedom – EVEN IF it’s against one’s own government. If you were to put up Palin’s image on your facebook page, with a gun’s crosshairs over it, that image would be taken down and you would get a visit from the Secret Service. If YOU can’t get away with such overt hatred, why should she? She should be prosecuted for incitement to violence. What she did is wrong, possibly illegal and progressives should not be too quick to walk back her violence on her behalf.
