“It is one thing to be prepared and to plan for options in the future. It is another thing to gouge the American public by fear-mongering. One must have a balanced approach to defense and preparation. Defense contractor lobbyists are not the ones who must be mollified.”

“This is good. Some of the worst corruption occurs on the state and local level.”

“This amounts to a surrender to the forces of reaction and their lobbyists trying to destroy Obamacare and to stop increasing taxes on the upper 2%.”

“Shaming will not work. The dad, if he is sincerely worried about the welfare of his grandchildren, should go to court and gain custody. I've seen other grandparents do this successfully.”

“I partially agree with you, Boshemia. While MSNBC and FOX do slant the news to fit their demographics, and both latch on to separate obsessions, I have yet to hear the pundits on MSNBC lie with ease to press their points.”

“I prefer to read my news from as many sources as possible. I'm not sure I have the whole story but I sure do know how everybody feels about it. :)”

“That because FOX "conservatives" lie more. Far more. They have to.”

Skydave on Nov 28, 2012 at 12:41:12

“I have actually heard pundits on MSNBC, retract or apologize when they get it wrong, this has happened several times, how many times has FOX gotten it wrong and apologized? I would say none. The difference is FOX claims to be "fair and balanced" and they are not. MSNBC does not make that claim.”

“Indeed. Murdoch and his merry right-wing-hand-man Ailes have brought cognitive tabloidization to the US, reducing their low-effort brand of "thinking" (sic) ever lower and lower, until finally the lowest effort thinking possible becomes the favored default mode and ever finally THE mode-- just making stuff up, as needed, as you go along. Easy. Simple. Quick. Just like a toddler might do. Trying to manipulate mommy to do whatever he/she wants her to do, to get whatever he/she wants. Fox "conservatives"-- the toddlers in the room.”

“You are right about the publishing of the letter. I apologise. However, I stand by my characterization of the dad.”

portia2708 on Nov 28, 2012 at 12:56:37

“You are right that he no longer has any influence over them, but then why are they continuing to plague his wife with their complaints...they are grown, with responsibilities of their own, but seem to refuse to face. How are they any better parents then this man was to them? And, if he is wrong, then maybe his parents treated him badly too...at some point, we must take full responsibility for our own actions, especially once we become parents too...after all, in this world, NO one is forced to have children...they opted to have children and that seems to be the real crux of this disappointment...that they have no stability, yet have no qualms about bringing children into their situation...the father has a real good point”

“The time is long past when this dad had influence on his children. Public shaming merely creates more problems. Perhaps it was effective when everyone lived and died in the same village, but no more.”

alby91 on Nov 28, 2012 at 12:22:07

“and they need to be publicly shamed...they are in their 30's and they can't take care of themselves after their parents sacrificed to provide them with the best education and a caring home. They are not providing that for their children and it worries him.”

portia2708 on Nov 28, 2012 at 12:12:15

“Maybe if YOU actually read the article you would see that the father did NOT publish this, but rather the one daughter who is still talking to him asked to use it...to make money for HER.”

“Public shaming has never worked. It is encouraging that the Dad is engaging in some self-reflection, but it is long past the time that this parent had any influence on his progeny.”

“Sure, she could go to another barbershop. But, let's expand this argument. A person refuses to rent an apartment or serve dinner to a gay couple; a druggist refuses to sell contraception to a young woman. On and on.

Religious reasons to deny services are always sincere, but they are unlawful.”
