“Why do we keep allowing people like this to become famous?”

“We're sadists? Anyone who comments is part of the problem. People have different needs when it comes to being informed.
Fame isn't always a good thing. Even when it is a good thing, it can be a bad thing.”

“Read up about Barnum and bailey's sideshows in their road circuses. They had the best takers all night: The two headed lady, the 9 foot man, etc...we've always enjoyed the freak shows.
“I need to better inform myself and that seems to be a common struggle. I'm sure both sides have legitimate reasons for not working together. The Republicans have an extreme messaging problem and they keep shooting themselves in the foot. We shouldn't be each others enemies...!”
“Is it the best political strategy is to bash the party who is now saying they wish to help small businesses? So much for the desire to bridge divides then. This looks like common ground to me, despite the blatant politics involved, and I think it would be wise to try and build on that for the best interest of the American people.”

“There are 40 Republican-sponsored House bills that have passed the House and address jobs -- many that Democrats should support -- but Sen. Reid has stalled them all in the WSenate.”
“Goes to show you what war gets you. More people killed, more people grieving, more hatred.”

“We had no business in Libya, Supporting Muslim extremists in Egypt, We should have been out of Afghanistan in 2008, (But now we're surrendering to the Taliban, Muslim extremists) And we have no business in Syria either.”
“Perhaps I take things and life a bit too seriously then. Or these are serious times. The hypocrisy is rather outrageous though.”

“Some of my comments can be a bit tongue in cheek at times. When people get to know me they are surprised at my sense of humor because on the surface I take life very seriously and these are very serious times. At the moment we no longer have a representative government. Everything points at hemp being able to turn our economy around. It will help the people and the environment. Oil, coal, timber, the list goes on do not want to lose their control. F&F.”
“I would rather engage in serious debate with you. I suppose it was me who was being offensive, for which I apologize. You lose me at Obama Regime just as I was lost at the mention of Bush Regime. You may be right about the timing of all of this, but you could just as easily be wrong. I guess I believe that the way things work in this world allow for the creation of economically oppressed individuals, often not because it was their fault. I suppose everyday caring people could help lift these people up like has always been done, but sometimes that isn't enough. I believe government needs to play a role somehow in coming to the aid of struggling Americans. I know I am strong because I care about people and seek to help lift spirits up. I'm just looking for common ground somewhere.”
“Well I would claim otherwise about myself personally, but like I said, it's pointless to claim anything contrary to what you believe. I know I'm strong. I assume you mean "we" as in Republicans/Conservatives and "you" as in Democrats/Liberals. Don't tread on me.”
“Congress passed the legislation and leaders in the business community were involved in discussions with the White House. I'm not going to pretend to know all of the details, but aren't you at least happy that government will be, in essence, smaller for another year?”
“It seems that Americans are better suited to dealing with a select few key issues at a time. The fight was worth fighting (for the greater good, as you say) and equal rights is an important issue in American politics currently. I think we need more than two parties!”

“You: "I think we need more than two parties!"
Me: Agreed x 2
But, until that time, we have so many fights on our hands that I would have gladly exchanged Gay Marriage for restoration of Labor Rights, Family Right Expansion in the workplace, Universal Health Care, the Repeal of the Citizen's United Case predicated on a warped ideal that Corporations are equal to Humans in regard to 1st Amendment Rights; and, the restoration of the Voting Rights Act.
But, lookie...we have...Gay Marriage!!
We, the proletariat, at large, are in serious trouble....with a Capital T.”
