  • Well that is the extreme right view of how things should be and you have a right to your minority opinion. Others are a little more tolerant of American's right to choose their own religions and don't care about hyphenated names. They also see the Constitution as a living document that can be updated as American's evolve in their thinking.

    This country was founded by progressive people lookinbg for a new way. So far it has continued to improve. My God is good but so is my fellow American's Gods by whatever name they call them.

    Remember KHGal this is a FREE country.

  • How to make our country better, we need to get rid of people like John Boehner. His plan of suing Obama backfired on him. lol! The Demo's raised more cash in one day then they ever had, when he announced he was going to sue Obama. We all know Obama hasn't ordered as many Executive orders as previous presidents had.

    The hypocrisy here is stunning: President Bush issued many more executive orders than President Obama and Boehner didn't make a peep.

    Your words: I find true with the GOP This not only reflects upon our government, country, but the entire world and our attitudes and choices that cause others harm; a spread of cancerous malaise and despair.

  • This was not a political commentary, although some of it applied to All Elected Officials regardless of Party. This is the very reason we have dissension in the world. You will notice that I did not name names, creeds or religions, except my own. I didn't single any one particular group out.

    You missed the entire point of the blog in your haste to pick a fight.

    Please Read The Declaration and see how much of it is still happening today. Offer something more than the same old tired accusations.

    Remember why our Country is Great and how it came to be. Take your own personal inventory about labels and attitudes. I don't call anyone left wingers, or right wingers, I call all of you to remember that we are Americans, first.

  • KH Gal, you seemed to be preaching about what you wanted Americans to do and what they should think about, for example, the comment about the hyphenated names.

    If you write a political blog, criticizing others, named or unnamed, you should probably expect a negative response.

  • Interesting political blog. The anger against hyphenated people, the unnamed tyrant, and the many sins of the tyrant seem passive-aggressive. Why not directly name the people that the anger is directed at?

    You shouldn't have to type the Declaration of Independence. It's all over the Internet. You can do a copy (CTRL+C) and paste (CTL+V) to insert the words into your blog. It will same you time, tired fingers, and possibly errors.

  • We agree but just not in the same vain as the Republicans in that "Funny how free speech bothers some when it doesn't conform to their own misguided and ill-informed ideology."
