Cobert should have known better to even go there ... you can play the quotation game forever ... or maybe he should've thrown these back at her ...

Let your heart feel for the afflictions and distress of everyone, and let your hand give in proportion to your purse.

And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin -- Matt: KJV

James Carvelles wife was on The Colbert Report tonight & he said something about in the bible where it says to help the poor, she responded with, "It also says, If you don't work, you don't eat!" Paraphrasing, of course. I thought that she was supposed to be the Rethug with some level of sense!

A birther is someone who thinks our President was not born in this country.

uh ... wow, what a response! I don't know what a birther is either ... something in the air lately brings images of women being kidnapped from abortion clinics and hospitals and forced to have children even if it kills them both ... I don't know how these people can call themselves pro-life and then shout "kill the bill" and "kill the democrats"... oh, and I agree completely ... this is still REALLY about their dislike regarding having a black president.

So polite of the person who referred to FOX as "Faux News" ... I call it like the button says ... News for dumb F*X, but may switch to calling it "2 many Fockers ... don't wanna meet any more" LOL ...

Yep. These guys scare me too!
Death threats & people who think the president is ruining our country ~ Today I saw a guy on the news accusing him of trying to take away "his" personal property ~ Huh?!??
Did I miss something?

Oh yeah and while I'm scratching my head what exactly IS a 'Birther'? I wanted to be a midwife, I'm assuming that's not related to these folks? LOL

I agree they are scary. They are decidedly not Christian! Since when is vandalism and violence acceptable?

I gotta say that out of all of the nut jobs - those who thought Mr. Obama was going to take away their ammunition & those called the birthers are astounding to me.

Several guys I work with - went ammo shopping/stocking up. And grumbled when they couldn't buy any more because the demand over took the supply. And I pointed out if they didn't all listen to Faux News and realize no single person can take away an amendment they might be able to get ammo a lil easier. And not just help to artificially increase the cost of the ammo.

Morons.

Most of the people I know who are seriously conservative are truly not very bright, and I agree, probably racist.

While there is a certain percentage of folks that are most certainly prejudice, I think most are just fearful of change and just living in fear.

The republican/tea party hate machine creates and breeds fear. Fear is simply pushing the unknown. And the unknown is scary. And the only two responses to fear is fight or flight. And with the constant fanning of the flames - it's going to be awhile before we see the flight.

It's truly sad. I'm feeling bad for the democratic representatives that are receiving threats to themselves & their families. That's just horrible.

Same here. I actually had my first verbal 'fight' with a relative who wasn't political at ALL until he started hanging around with a blame-throwing right wing extremist. One thing I can say, they have the brain-washing down pat. He argued that he hates Obama because his taxes went up and I said "No they didn't!" We went back and forth until he finally admit that this was over the past TEN years. Ugh! Even after that revelation, he STILL "hates" Obama and yet still doesn't have a reason! Times like that I think, "Damn, Americans are pretty stupid." but then I come here to this team and am reminded that it's not all of us! I'm very thankful to have all of you to come to!
