“You do realize you just answered that there's no such thing as "0bamab0ts" right? Should I assume that was your intention, or that you just have trouble with that whole literacy thing those left-wingers like to push.”
“Let's start this debate off with a question for Mr. Gingrich -- Which group would you consider the more "invented" people;
A) The PaIestinians?
C) The fake Twitter followers your campaign hired agencies to create in a desperate effort to boost your "popularity" and increase speaking fees?”

“long time no see, my friend.
it's a measure of how lacking in humanity the right has become that they believe inanimate objects (corporations) are entitled to more rights than living, breathing people.”

“LOL...and, of course, except for our own native Americans....we are an invented people...LOL..the American Exceptionalism they all talk about from an invented people, eh??
Tea..what a dummma55:>)”

“And I thought the right believed God invented everyone, not just the Palestinians, so where did the rest of us come from, could it have been evolution?”
“Anyone know if the debate is being live streamed anywhere? I just really don't feel like watching it in the living room and having to subject the other people in my house to the onslaught of platitudes and hypocrisy that's about to ensue.”

“In case you missed it, here's the online link to tonights Clown debate again.
“I have a personal connection to this story, not only because I edited the video, but because my mom is Beth DeCaprio, the woman in the video who runs the non-profit Grace Foundation.
The outpouring of support for these horses and the foundation has been truly amazing, and I urge anyone moved by their plight to visit the Grace Foundation website or Facebook page and learn more about what this non-profit does for animals, at-risk youth and children with special needs (I don't think I can post a link, but a google search for The Grace Foundation will get you there.)
Right now, the conservative estimate of how much it will cost to care for these horses is $150,000, and The Grace Foundation is hoping for donations of $7 or more in support of the "Susanville 70".
If you're like me and are already struggling in these incredibly difficult economic times, you can help (potentially even more) by spreading the word through Facebook, Twitter and anywhere else you can think of. One tweet from an animal lover like @WilliamShatner to his 800,000+ followers could do more for the #Susanville70 and the @GraceFoundation than you know.
Thank you all so much for this unexpected show of support. Without it, the Grace Foundation wouldn't exist and these horses may have never been given a second chance to show how truly amazing they are.”
“Please take a moment to learn about what the Grace foundation actually does. They work with at risk and special needs children. They stable and care for the Folsom Police Department mounted patrol. They work with the community in more ways than I could list in a single post.
True, both PETA and The Grace Foundation work to fight animal cruelty, but they do so in very different ways.”
“You can skip to about 2:10 into the video and there's actually a happy story that follows. But yes, it's impossible to see that kind of senseless horror without wanting to go Jack Bauer on Mr. Bennett. And believe me, I should know. I edited the video and had to watch all the raw footage (there were clips I simply couldn't use because they were just too much.) I realize this is a shameless appeal, but it looks like this is going to cost The Grace Foundation around $150,000 to care for these horses, and they could use any help they can get.”

“MD thank you for not putting in the most graphic footage but maybe you should have to get the attention of the people. I would love to help out but I can't until I get my vehicle fixed. Hopefully in Dec. I can give something. this is just so senseless.”
“I hope you're right. Personally, I'm beginning to think we live in a completely neutral, indifferent universe and that ideas like Karma are just human inventions to help deal with the fact that, as George Carlin liked to say, we're owned. All of us. I hope you're right though. I really do.”
“In other market news, the Stick and Bindle industry (or S&B) is reporting record sales along with the surprising complete resurgence of the newspaper industry, though economists attribute the latter to the discovery of the newspaper's multiple uses as a windshield wiper, bedding material, and kindling for communal shantytown trashcan fires.”
“wish I would have known about this guy. Seems like the kind of politician I'd like.
[btw, i'm neglecting my traditional comment here which would have been about how the news of someone dying at 92 "really makes you stop and think"...that's right friends, I'm a recovering sarcastic jerk]”

“Would that be a "recovering sarcastiholic"?
I have no desire for treatment: I'm just curious. ;)”
“You don't actually believe that, do you? You're arguing they purposefully used a clip they knew was from a year before in the hopes of slipping it past the viewer to further a narrative? That they had a meeting and said "Guys, now we know this clip is from last year, but we're going to air it anyway. And then here's what we'll do...go on the next night and admit that we were wrong? How are we going to do this? Well let's hack into WorldNetDaily's site and make it look like they were originally responsible for the mistake...then we'll ultimately take responsibility for not fact checking their reporting...it's brilliant!!! Mwahahaha".............You actually believe that?”

“I don't have to believe all of that to know that she lied.”
“Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap!
Only Nixon can go to China. Only someone like Christie can get through to the crazies on an issue like this. I really hope he goes to see Hannity or Beck soon because then we'll really see if he has the brass to stand up to that kind of ignorance face to face...let's just hope he doesn't try to walk this back like McCain did last time he made the mistake of telling the truth.”
“bleh, such a lame argument. do you not realize that our success stems from things made possible by our government...which we all pay into. Those who benefit most from what our government makes possible should be able to pay a little more. No man is an Island unto himself.”
“I absolutely understand the desire (and necessity) of having non white voices, and I think you are right on! I just don't care much for Al Sharpton personally, and even though I love Melissa Harris-Perry, I didn't like her as a host, which frankly surprised me. I made a comment actually some time back that I would love to see her host.
So I don't think my feelings re: Harris-Perry and Sharpton were based on some unconscious racial disconnect. At least I hope not. I realize this may sound like the oft spoken and completely insincere "I'm not racist because I have black friends" line white people use, but I do really like Don Lemon. He and Anderson Cooper are pretty much the only two people I can stand at CNN. And as I wrote, I really like Van Jones and I think they could easily build a show around him.
Point being, I'd love to hear from those perspectives. Diversity is good, and having almost exclusively white male anchors is not a good thing. But I do like Chris Hayes and the knowledge and personality he brings to the table. That was the intent of my initial comment, and my apologies if I failed to clearly express that.”
“wasn't intended as a racial comment at all. I think Ed Schultz and Rev Al are equally big grandstanders, and it annoys me equally from both of them. Do I like their politics? Yes. But I don't care for their tactics.
And I think Harris-Perry was awkward in the role as a host. I don't know why because she's normally a very engaging commentator, but in a host role, she didn't seem as authentic as she normally does. All hosts have writers that continually craft their voice. Jon Stewart is a writer on TDS, but he also has writers that know how to write jokes and commentary that works for Jon Stewart. Same for Maddow. She has an authentic and original voice as a commentator and has writers that know how to write in that voice. My comment about Harris-Perry was that it seemed the writers were still writing in Maddow's voice, and the result was that it seemed stilted and awkward because it takes time to craft a television personality.
I do completely agree with your last sentence though. I just don't think that different perspectives requires having people of different races. The personal isn't always political in my opinion. I think we've made a lot of progress moving past that.”
loraine on Aug 4, 2011 at 04:32:06
“So you will understand that some of us would like to hear those different perpectives come from voices that are not white. The talk shows are dominated by white males. Thats fine I like a lot of them. Rachael the first woman to be taken seriously on cable news. She brought a different perspective to her show. I'd just like to see perspectives from a lot of people. I like Martin Bashir. He's fresh. So too are Rev Al and Harris-Perry. Its not an either or situation. I think that it can be both and.”
“our president is either the most brilliant person in the world and in the end will reveal his plans to institute true progressive legislation....or he's the worst negotiator ever. i'd like to know which.
or i suppose he's a mortal, fallible person who makes mistakes just like the rest of us. still, difficult to forgive this one.”
