“There are many, many progressives who are all for accountability in Washington. I don't want my tax dollars spent on $600 hammers toilet seats either. But we'll never support the T.P. as it now exists. You'd be a perfect person to address the RTRS, and I hope you get noticed by the event's organizers.”

Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg Walk Off 'The View' After Fiery Exchange With Bill O'Reilly (VIDEO)

Commented Oct 14, 2010 at 15:16:11 in Media

“The biggest problem I have with Bill is not his opinions, some of which I actually agree with, but his condescending attitude toward anyone who doesn't agree with him. He tells the ladies, "listen, you'll learn something." He calls Jon Stewart that his audience is "a bunch of stoned slackers." He criticizes Media Matters and other left leaning blogs for doing the same types of things he and his Fox News cohorts do. He's just a know-it-all blowhard.”

“Curiously, just what DO you "actually" agree with O'Reilly on? It's a given his smarmy, arrogant, condescending attitude is insufferable, but so is his position on every issue I can think of.”

“OK...so far I see about half the people hate Al Gore for being a Capitalist, and the other half are OK with it. Which are the hypocrites?”

“Capitalism is great, as long as what you are doing is not hypocritical to that which you are preaching or forcing everyone else to do.”

“So if I'm in an environment where everyone is drinking, I can get away with rape, and it's not immoral, unethical, or illegal. Gotcha.”

“If that's the conclusion you draw here, you should check to see if your space heater is putting out carbon monoxide.”

“Of course it's immoral and illegal. But, unfortunately, the way the rape laws and court systems are currently set up, in most of these cases a perpetrator CAN get away with rape.

Prosecutors are elected public officials and they have budgets provided by the taxpayers. They do NOT try cases they have an expectation of losing. Their doubt in these cases comes from the fact that they are unlikely to seat 12 jurors who will side with the victim. There will always be people -- like many of the posters here -- who maintain if the young woman doesn't want to get raped, she shouldn't have been drunk in a bar. In fact, in this case the victim DID commit the first illegality, drinking using a false ID. So to many people, that negates her right to safety. I'm NOT agreeing with that -- just stating what the reality is from the court's standpoint.

If you don't like it, as a voter you have a chance to change the laws. Let your legislators know you want rape laws with teeth in them. Let the prosecutor in your area know you object to business as usual.

Until there is a public outcry beyond the feminists -- such as myself -- who have been arguing for DECADES for stronger rape laws, it will be business as usual.”

“Be sure to provide plenty of alcohol to the women, so as to get them "heap plenty drunk" and consequently unable to make wise decisions regarding their behavior.”

The Tea Party Is All About Race, Part 2

Commented Mar 11, 2010 at 11:42:27 in Politics

“It's really very simple. There are racists in the Teabagger movement. No sane person can deny that. Is anyone calling them out? Has one leader of the movement denounced the racist element within the movement? Because until that happens, there will always be a sizable majority of people who will refuse to associate themselves with the movement, even thought they may agree with many of the sentiments expressed by the movement.”

“Yes I have. I'm sure some of which you can find in my comments on this site in reference to Tancredo and Palin, other work was not online. (To recap, they are both idiots and have no place in a small government group. Neo-conservatism is anathema to classical liberalism, a closed immigration policy makes us weaker as a nation, shut up about the birth certificate, the religious right should stay away from the tea party) Unfortunately, I do not make for a good story, so I won't be ending up on the news and most people will ignore these comments here as they do any other reasonable response.”
