    A liberal is someone who respects your opinion, and your right to have it - as long as it agrees with his.

    A liberal is someone with both feet planted firmly in mid-air! (Not original with me. I believe it was Bill Buckley)

    Sent to me from a long time friend. J.Woolsey

    I have often wondered why the conservatives are called the “right” and the liberals are called the “left.” By chance, I stumbled upon this verse in the Bible:
    Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV)
    “ The heart of the wise inclines to the right,
    but the heart of the fool to the left .”

    Hmmm, I guess that sums it up pretty well...
    YOU CAN'T HAVE A BETTER REFERENCE SOURCE THAN STRAIGHT TEXT FROM THE BIBLE!

    Nothing hurts more than the truth> I'll bet that the Quaran has it in there also because there is a lot of the old testament in it. Other religions probably have a saying, close to or exactly the same.

    A liberal is someone who respects the rights of others and wants changes made for the betterment of the country. A conservative is one who doesn't care for the rights of others. See the Patriot Act. How many rights did George and his henchmen take from you when they enacted that law?

    Ive never heard of a liberal going to a gathering of folks and opening fire with an automatic handgun like that idiot did in Arizona yesterday. By the way, from what was reported the Army turned this idiot away. It doesn't take much to plant the seeds of murder in the mind of an idiot. Those like Palin and the t-party should start watching what they say to that group of screwballs when they spew forth their ideas. One has a certain responsibility for their actions and planting the seeds of murder in the minds of idiots is in my opinion accessory to that persons actions. They may never have said to kill anyone but when you put up posters with cross-hairs of a rifle scope imposed over the top of someones picture and "Target" a person the seed of murder is put in the mind of one who believes what he sees. They should be held accountable for the actions of those they entice to larceny. That is my opinion and I'll bet that each of those groups of people, the talk show hosts and t-party and Sarah Palins camp will try to distance themselves from the actions of this screwball. I think if one wants to get their country back they should be at least responsible enough to realize that the screwballs they preach too are capable of anything, even the unthinkable.

    Some of the first people to die in this terrible action were a nine year old girl who happened to be born on 9/11/01 and a federal judge who was put on the bench by Bush Sr. What a waste. I wish the best for that congresswomans healthy recovery. My families prayers and our thoughts are going out to those who died and their familys in this tragic murder. Dan

    It's really too bad that we have to choose up sides. See, some folks can't discern rhetoric and debate from life. When you choose up sides, some on the other side have to pick up a gun and shoot somebody, or fly a plane into a building, or strap a bomb to themselves and take infidels with them to whereever. Some have to pass laws that make free speech punishable by death, like the Islamic blasphemy laws in Pakistan.

    Maybe we should all become Americans, and not choose up sides?

    The AZ shooter was obviously mentally ill, but be that as it may...one of the shooter's classmates did say he was very left-wing, politically, FWIW.


    ...the left _does_ have its own wacko fringe, you know. Just ask the innocent people who got blown up by Ted Kaczynski's letter bombs.

    Dahaub...

    You libs are humorous.... Killing a viable fetus is ok, and then comes the moronic twist, to argue to save this piece of human garbage from lethal injection... The epitomy of hypocritical.

    Doctors are supposed to take the hippocratic oath.... Evidently, libs must take the hypocritical oath....

    Sheesh, gone for a couple of months and you are still here...

    Larson you must have zero short term memory. Read my post and see what I've said. I just did and can't find anything about abortion in it. How I feel about abortion is that it's an issue with a woman and her doctor. You conservatives want smaller government and individual rights yet you want the government to dictate the right of abortion to everyone. Bigger government isn't that true? Who is the hypocrite now?

    Are you implying that I can have a conference with my doctor and together we can decide that it's OK for me to go out and kill a fetus, or a congressman?? Whoopee! By the way, I think liberals have conservatives beaten when it comes to blowing people away for ridiculous reasons.

    Isn't it just like a liberal twerp like dahaub to try to blame this tragedy on conservatives. How pathetic can one be? This sick bastard had a personal grudge against the congresswoman and was referred to by one of his friends as a "leftist pothead". So dahaub and his fellow retards have concluded that it's Sarah Palin's fault that a sicko leftist with a personal grudge did this.

    How about when Obama said: "When they (Republicans) bring knives to the fight, we'll bring guns." Not a word from dahaub and his fellow blowhards about that hate speech. Liberals make me sick.

    8-Bore, I implyed nothing of the sort. Your answer to me is typical of a conservative who is doing nothing more than redirecting the issue denying the issue and making up lies as usual.Go get your Funk and Wagnels out and re-read what I wrote in my post. Why does ones answer on this forem have to be explained in detail to those who cannot use a dictionary? Dan

    I shouldn't have been so hard on poor dahaub since he's probably a leftist pothead too. LOL

    Not if you consider the innocent people killed in Iraq for oil on the orders of George W. Bush. Neil
