“Rush Limbaugh said that those who voted for the legislation should be hunted down and shot on this morning's radio show. How is that, or Sarah Palin's call to Revolution at the Tea Party, or Glenn Beck's inciting violence ANY different than a Taliban leader inciting violence against Americans?”

“Well, R. Limbaugh said he'd be leaving the country if the bill passed, let's hope he was telling the truth for a change.”
“Exactly. Right after the Sarah Palin called for revolution at the Tea-Party, some poor crazy person flew a plane into a building in Austin after leaving rants about the government. People like Sarah, Rush and Glen need to be held responsible for inciting violence!”
“Death Panels Sarah Palin? She may be right about the fictional term she made up. But those who sit on the panels are those who vote "no" to health care reform and deny health care for millions.”

“We've had death panels for 20+ years. They work for your health insurance companies. They're the ones who deny claims and cap payments so the insurance companies can retain your premium payments as profits... with which they can buy politicians votes plus all the other extravagances that go with being ultra rich. Luxury villas, yachts, like that.”
“I've realized that the fictional term "death panels" concocted by Sarah Palin is actually pretty applicable when it comes to all of the Republicans who are voting 'no' to health care just for political reasons. They, in essence, are sentencing millions to death by not providing health care. Death Panels indeed.”
“Missed in the story is an even BIGGER story. Sarah wants a REVOLUTION! That's what she told the crowd. Greeeaaat... so she's inciting more homegrown terrorists like Timothy McVey. Thanks a lot Sarah. Think before you speak. No, we don't want domestic terrorism.”
“For all the folks out there who think Global Warming is a hoax (or for those of us who knows someone who thinks it's a hoax) here's some basic “no think” info for the more challenged of the group:
an average auto in idle puts out the same heat as an average barbeque grill - now, think of that amount of heat coming from the number of vehicles in idle at any one time, all over the U.S. and all over the world. Heck, L.A. would warm the planet all by itself given all the cars in idle even at this moment.
Then, throw in powerplants, the 7000 airplanes that fly at any given time in the world, the heat from the pavement and buildings all over the world… and gee, makes some sense that the planet is warming, quickly…
It doesn’t take much to understand that there’s a problem, it just takes a little bit of brain to get it…”
“I recall when Arnold was first elected governor thinking, "well there goes the money the Enron debacle was supposed to repay California." Back in June of 2004, Senator Feinstein asked the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to force Enron to give up $1.8 billion in profits it has received since the time it knowingly manipulated the energy markets and caused widespread blackouts, remember 2000, tape recordings of traders laughing about killing off old ladies? Remember, Dick Cheney met with Enron executives before it all collapsed but never would discuss why.
The Enron crooks admitted market manipulations, prison sentences were implemented, but the money was never repaid. Well, what happened to that deal, Arnold?
Although the government has pursued a handful of criminal charges and several billion dollars worth of fines and refunds against energy companies, these enforcement actions fall far short of what needs to be done to hold companies accountable for their crimes. Total fines and refunds total $4.5 billion - less than half what the California Attorney General has calculated is owed to California alone.”
“So if Mr. Cheney is saying we should be concerned about having prisoners get relocated to Super Max prisons in the U.S., does that imply that Super Max prisons aren't that secure? Why should we be worried if there's a terrorist released to a Maximum Security Prison? Isn't that the point of having prisons in the US? Or is he concerned that iif they are in a Super Max, it would easy to for terrorists to get into the US (after his administration supposedly put in place safeguards to keep terrorists out) to commando their friends out of a Super Max ?or both?”

“What it means is that Obama has GUARANTEED that none of the Gitmo heavies will be released.
THEREFORE, if they are released to US prisons the ACLU and Soros will do their damndest to muddy the waters to defend these guys, they will force classified evidence into the public and they just may well get these guys off.
That is a contradiction of the President's GUARANTEE.
“The strategy to keep people from voting appears to be something that's been thought about for years: keeping people away from the polls is to the advantage of the Republicans. See this 1980 video of Paul Weyrich of the conservative "think" tank the Heritage Foundation about these types of shenanigans.
