OK GP
what on earth is a GP? Your General Practitioner? What does that have to do with your ill behavior? Not a thing.

You need to get a hold of yourself. Take personal responsibility for your actions. Which incidentally are inappropriate. Show some respect for these families.
No you are

Aside from politics, what happened in AZ is a major catastrophe. Whats this country coming to? I also read that Ms. Giffords was a target on the scope of a gun on Palin's website and Facebook, now that needs to be investigated. It doesn't take much for some crazy person to see something like that and think it means they should kill her. This stuff is going too far. If people are going to get killed or wounded because somebody else disagrees with their political views, we're all going to end up as walking targets.
The use of targets on politcal maps has been used by Dems more than once. I'm no Palin supporter, but to somehow put some blame of this tragedy on her shoulders is just ridiculous.

The televised funeral of these victims was so sad. Something like this should never have happened.There should be better security in place to prevent anything like this from happening ever again.

And YOU Sam, are disrespecting EVERYONE who posts here by calling them names, threatening them and repeatedly posting nonsense. You tell everyone to "go in peace and praise the Lord" when you do no such thing yourself. The best way to get people to do things is to LEAD BY EXAMPLE. YOUR example is not very nice. The very things YOU claim that people are doing to you, YOU yourself are doing to others. I have not responded to you because I am very disappointed in you, that you will not leave Ava alone. She has not been nasty or insulting to you in a long time, yet you constantly insult and harrass her. You call me and Phyllis, and others, wimps because we will not back you up when you are clearly WRONG. This is my last response to you unless and until you STOP with your nastiness. There is no need for it.
LynneB,
I don't know you but I've read alot of your posts, and you seem to me to be a very kind, caring person. I wish you all the best.

Thank you, Eric, I try! But there are those, as you know, who will readily and rapidly disagree with you. I wish you all the best also; you've posted some really witty retorts and I enjoy reading them.

The problem is that when you silence speech , someone has to be the person or group that says what is or is not acceptable . That's a lot of power . That 's the kind of power that does more than corrupt. It's a dangerous power , far more than the rantings of a few out of the mainstream indivduals. Free speech may lead to tragedies, but censor ship leads to atrocities.
