“The best part of this, is all the people who told me at election time that "Sarah Palin is a real conservative!", and now none of them want to talk politics. Go figure. Not only did she bring you the bridge to nowhere (as a true conservative), She has shown herself to be a bridge to nowhere for her constituents as well.
Anyone who puts their faith in a politician is a fool, people like Zane Henning are who we should be teaching our kids to emulate.”
“"opponents argue it's an unnecessary rewriting of history that ignores Rhode Island's tradition of religious liberty and tolerance". This country's history of "religious liberty and tolerance" has an immense body count, it's stunning the degree of self deception it would take, to not see that. Like wise, it's only the descendants of slave owners who have created a fictional reality to shield themselves from the actions of their family members who could have a problem with this change. These are the people who you will hear say such thing as "This is the greatest country in the world!" when they have never been a citizen of any other country. Oh, and my favorite "George Bush is a good christian man!"...... Self deception - the great American pastime.”

“I am proud to be a Rhode Islander; the first entity in North America to declare independence from the darn British colonizers, to abolish slavery, to deal with Indians with respect and honor, to allow the opening of the first Synagogue in the United States and the first State to contribute troops to the Union, when President Lincoln requested help against the Confederat rebels. Mr. Almeida belly-aching about the "Providence Plantation" words in the State's official name is total lack of historical prespective and sheer nonsense. After all, Roger Wiiliams was a far-seeing Christian who had nothing in common with the Puritans who ruled the Bay Colony back then and who, in the name of God, committed the miscarriage of justice at the Witch Trials at Salem. We should all thank Roger Williams for being the father of the concept of separation of State and Church, and I am a Presbyterian!”
“murderers dancing? didnt i allready see this on youtube... philipiano prisoners doing thriller or Bush doing an impression of an epileptic in heroin withdrawal I dont know what one i like more! How meny people died in Iraq and Afghanistan that day?”
“The Colonel Sanders comment was obviously a joke that you are taking out of context. You should try for a job at Fox news you would be perfect. As for being 51, well that does not make you an adult, it just makes you old. Your comment however shows that you are obviously ignorant. You are probably just the type of person Charles was talking about.
