As I commented before, with all the Hillary paraphernalia that I expose on my person, on my car, at my home, I have been--so far--run off the road while transporting two of my children in recent days, treated to "the finger" by passing motorists who put me in danger on their merry way, treated with hostility by cashiers and bankers that I frequent on my daily excursions around town---My outspoken comments on various blogs and articles have been "moderated" and altogether "banned", with those comments that have gotten through the "gatekeepers" have been tramped upon as I have been called, a "wacko feminist", acting like a "twelve year-old",(as tho' that's a "bad" thing), been told to "get back on my medication", and so on...I am NOT pointing to particular races of people, nor gender, but I am sure some have been Republicans and some have been fellow Democrats or Independents who disagree with my choice--

My point is...I feel violated as an American Citizen and I am angry and will NEVER feel completely comfortable in this country or world again---but I will trudge on...just like Hillary.

Oh for crying out loud. Stop with the dramatics. "I feel violated". Gimme a break woman.

There are just some people out there that are completely radical and extreme. But to "feel violated", that's pushing it a little TOO far. You're as bad as those nutjobs like that guy that assaulted the supporters.

To Akron Mother: I would gather most of the hostility is coming from fellow liberals for Obama. While many conservatives might throw a playful comment your way, it's doubtful they would become violent. One only needs to look at the protests at the 2004 Republican convention to witness the intolerance and hatred of the far left. They're agenda is to shout down and silence, they are incapable of debate. I don't even try to have a discussion with the lefties any more because it usually ends by me stating a fact and them screaming F you because they don't know what else to say. For them the argument is there is no argument. (i.e. Al Gore and manmade global warming.) So Akron Mother, while I am not a Hillary supporter, I sympathize with your plight. The liberals have now turned their hatred and intolerance on each other and it just might destroy the party. Good luck.

Uhh, doesn't Obama claim to pray to Jesus every night? And Hillary at least pretends to attend church. Typical loony liberal hypocrisy.

Hilary can trudge on, but she will not catch Obama. Simple math shows that she cannot defeat him. He simply holds too big of an advantage in delegates and even with wins in Texas and Ohio, she did little to narrow the gap.

The race is over. Hilary is just too stubborn to admit it.

Since we are on the subject of bumper stickers, I would like to say I find that many offensive thoughts are expressed by people confusing "free speech" with bad manners,I do not mean things like--HRC for Prez, but anything with foul words and the such. Next, Akron Mother says she plastered herself in HRC items. This makes you a target, and YOU know it. It was your goal. Next time someone makes a comment, have a civil discussion with them, isn't that what you seek? I am glad that you are engaged enough to want to shout from the rooftops "Hillary, Hillary" but it seems to teeter on religious fervor, next time you critize a Bible thumper for the same display of religious conviction,think twice.Now stop whining, you have bought into the "victim mentality", and if you will never feel comfy in this country again...SEE YA!

It means that in November the Virgin Mary will descend from the heavens and smite the liberal infidels with lightning bolts that fly out of her arse.

Actually, it was a typo. Shoulda been "primary."

I'm not sure who all is "promary" or "conmary."

Akron Mother is not plastered with Hillary stickers any where---just the one on the car, one on the coat, one sign on the house--Putting me and my children in danger by being run OFF the road is almost murder, not hysterics on my part, and , yes, the police department was notified en route , as the scoundrel who did the dirty deed of running me and my children off the road failed to realize that the car in front of him was not going to let him do the same to him---so his licence # was turned in, and the cops got him for road rage--

I am NOT making myself a target, but am expressing my right to freedom of speech in this United States of America.

While "violated" may be too strong word, "persecuted" or "hassled" might be more appropriate.

Too many people need to exercise better self-control when they see political stuff they don't agree with. Like my own self-control, when I see some neo-con idiot who still has a "W" sticker on his car after 4 years---I resist the urge to toss a tomato.

At this point, Obama is ahead---but remember, this is politics. You never know what scandal lurks awaiting it being revealed. In which case, Hilary is waiting in the wings.

Akron mother states and I quote: "with all the Hillary paraphernalia that I expose on my person, on my car, at my home..." Which is it? Lots of stuff or demur little itsy-bitsy campaign button? I sense a retraction.

As an after thought to Akron mother: Consider taking the sticker off your car and see if you are still treated to "road rage". I am just suggesting that maybe you are a bad driver and are making poor driving decisions and people are reacting to that, not your Hillaryism. Lets all try to slow down and be more courteous drivers, OK?

No, Mohammed Barack Hussein Obama prays to allah with his koran. True name & true religion-MUSLIM.
Hillary prays Bill won't get caught with another intern!

Likewise Ron Paul.
McCain will fall.

That Neo-con loose cannon is bound to implode between now and late summer. Should be interesting no matter which side.
