“Wow usaneedshelp. There were long lines, and they were televised, people were interviewed, articles were written etc. That was a lie? Interesting. And the reason that Romney may have been a felon is that he said he had nothing to do with Bain Capital during his involvement with the Olympics. There were however, tax records that disputed this fact. So no one really looked into this fully, but it seems that Romney lied about his non-involvement with Bain.

Do you really read about this stuff? It seems you are not very real read. I mean, hate the President if you must, I have no problem with that. But at least be accurate. It's important to know things if you are going to discuss them in an open forum.”

“The only information about Romney's taxes came from Democratic operatives. If you can have an independent though you would realize that if Romney had broken any laws and it was common knowledge and broadcast on MSNBC the IRS would be all over him. As to hating the President no way do I hate him but I do strongly disagree with him. Again, you have fallen victim to the propaganda put out by your Democrat masters, they say that if you disagree with the President then you are a racists, believe me I am not but I am a proud American.”

“I don't think that Maher should pay Donald Trump. But I do think that Donald should seek therapy for not having matured past the age of twelve. He should have some real concerns that with all his money it hasn't bought him one ounce of maturity. lol.”

“If America is going to go around the world and preach about human rights and morality, we at least have to be outraged when one of us falls short. But a person has to have a sense of fairness and respect for others to have found what he said offensive. You have every right not to be one of those people, however. But those who are offended, are not cry babies, we just have a conscience.”

“I agree that hopefully this is the lesson that can be learned. But another thing, is why do we need automatic weapons that our military uses in war zones? I hope this is another question we ask and then subsequently learn from.”

dknowles60 on Dec 21, 2012 at 09:33:27

“it was not a automatic weapon. you need aft permission to have one. it was semi auto. a 22 semi auto could do the same damage. what do yo want to do. go back to the musket”

“It is not an automatic weapon and it is not what our military uses.. Educate yourself!1”

“THESE ARE NOT WEAPONS THAT OUR MILITARY USE. CHECK OUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A LEGAL SEMI-AUTOMATIC RIFLE AND A MILITARY FULL AUTOMATIC ILLEGAL MILITARY WEAPON. JUST BECAUSE THEY LOOK DIFFERENT DOESN'T MEAN THEY ARE ANY DIFFERENT THAN ANY HUNTING RIFLE. IF SOMEONE IS INCLINED, THEY CAN DO THE SAME WITH ANY SEMI-AUTOMATIC HUNTING RIFLE.”

“I wouldn't judge the mother. I know that you have every right to. But she probably couldn't imagine her son being capable of such a monstrous act. I only wonder why she thought having guns in the house with a child with a mental health disorder was good judgement. Aside from that, i think we should all try to have compassion for each other.”

hg wells on Dec 20, 2012 at 17:07:43

“she told babysitters to never turn their back on him. Yep...she knew exactly what her son was capable of.”

“Her neighbor said, she was about to have him committed. That might be the reason he went off the deep end. Maybe he knew she was going to do it. It is so scary, to see this boys picture. I had a neighbor across the street, with a son that looked just like this killer. His mother has been in denial, that he has tried to kill himself a few times. One day, she might be in the same situation. I can see him doing that. So glad they moved, but, not far enough !”

priscianusjr on Dec 20, 2012 at 16:19:15

“I think she was probably in denial about how sick the kid was, and she must have felt that learning to shoot would be a way for him to feel more normal. Obviously she made a big mistake.”

“They got divorced in 2009. The news reports that they had an amicable divorce. The husband has remarried. I think my only problem with the mom is why she thought that with a child as disturbed as her son, guns in the home wouldn't pose some kind of danger, even if it wasn't a danger to others.”

“As terrible as I feel for those young men, and as much as I hope that the molestation won't interfere with their sexuality and their sexual expression as men, I feel that the chances are great that Sandusky was molested too. Most men who do this to young boys are not necessarily gay, but almost always, have been molested when they were defenseless.”

“All the more reason to be vigilant in stopping them before they collect multiple victims. We can't stop them before #1 but we *can* prevent #2+. And, no, being once a victim himself does not make him more sympathetic. And, no, not all victims go on to become pedophiles.”

“Because when you are gay, you feel persecuted. Isn't that obvious? And, by the way, a counselor is not supposed to tell you what to do. They are supposed to listen, and have you think through your own options. You have free will to make any choice you want, they aren't supposed to sway you in any way.”

Facebook Protection Amendment Voted Down In House

“Does anyone believe that republican's really support small government, government that isn't intrusive? Their trends are amazing to me. They have their beliefs wrapped in a woman's right to choose, they are supporting mandatory and sometimes intrusive ultrasounds when a woman considers abortion- even if she's raped, in Georgia they wanted to force women to carry stillborn and dying fetuses until 'natural labor' occurred, they are striping away the rights of workers and unions and now they are fine with employers viewing our facebook activities. What kind of person votes these politician's into office? Am I being critical here, or is this another kind of America brewing on the oven burner?”

“In Philadelphia, black, hispanic, white and asian's wear hoodies, and in the inner city, white, hispanic, black and asian have that tough attitude that I think you are referring to. And while the clothes and the attitude are supposed to give off some kind of message about their bravado. You and me, and everyone else, has to 'think' and realize clothes don't make the person good or bad. It would be like you dressing up and looking sexy, and then getting raped because a man thought your clothes meant that you were looking for sex. Being judgmental means we have, in that circumstance opted not to use our minds to think. There's no excuse for having a lazy mentality. .”

“Wonderfully said. I choose the path of hope also. Yet, I do know God, in that I feel God, or I feel something alive in the air when I look at the trees, or a beautiful child, or witness a kind act. I think that the reason we can't fathom how all this could be, is simply because logic is a creation of man. And the creator is not. So logic won't apply to how things came to be.”

“I would think it might annoy you that you are paying for the health insurance of all or most politicians. You are paying for their bodyguards, their transportation i.e. limo's, hotel stays, you are paying the salaries of their staff too.

If anything is unfair, it is paying for perks of politicians who can afford many of what they require of us, not helping out your neighbor who may need birth control so she can manage the growth of her family for financial reasons.

We live in a home called "America". and a house that is divided will fall. We either lend a helping hand to each other, or we all perish. And that is biblical.”

“The issue is, and remains to be about women and the republican agenda to restrict our right to manage the growth of our families. They are still on this agenda, and we women will continue to be angry and fired up. It's not going away until they let up and leave our reproductive rights out of their political agenda.”

“Nobody is restricting your rights. If you want it go buy it and pay for it. If you are so concerned about your health, why are you waiting around for the government to step in and pass laws so that you don't have to pay for it? If you were that concerned and responsible, you would terminate your internet connection bill to cover the cost of your birth control, or are you waiting around for the government to mandate that someone else pay for your internet connection?”

“Before Obama, there was no BC? Funny because my wife of 20 years has been on BC off and on over that time. No one ever denied her BC. The issue is not restricting BC, its republicans not wanting the Gov't mandating tax payers or companies to cover the cost of BC.”
