Comment: What is wrong with those idiots in Congress and the White House.
They're taking away all of our beliefs and everything concerning God. All
of a sudden they think God should be separate yet they want to take away
that too. The jackass that started all the athiasts bull is dead. They
let all of that get going without standing up for the rest of the people
of the United States that are Christians
They are letting our Country down and don't seem to care. What is wrong
with their heads. Tell those responsible for all of the crap going on to
go take a hike and speak up for us. I wish I could go there and tell them
all off, then they would call the police and want me in jail for speaking
my mind. They've even taken that away from us. The freedom of speech
seems to have been deleted also.

God wanted to be separate. Actually, He wants a Divorce.

So are the people who started Christianity. Point being?

It's more the gun in your hands that has people alarmed and worried.

Your sanity? No, you did that all by yourself.

Did you try control-Z? That should restore it.

Comment: Just wanted to tell you that you guys burst a lot of bubbles in
peoples lives. For instance the cloud shaped like God's hand in the sky?
"false" Millions of peoples faith in God was doubled just seeing that
picture. UNTIL SNOPES!!! said it was false. I hope you'll flex a little
when it comes to little kids believing in Santa Clause.

I'm going to, just for the hell of it, check Snopes, to see if Snopes is
for real!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you really that arrogant, to presume that you speak for "Millions of people"? No, wait. Don't answer that, Mr. Wildmon.

My nephew used to believe in Santa Clause, but always thought Santa Clause 2 sucked.

If their faith was based on such flimsy "evidence," and disappeared so quickly, then I'd tend to think that they're not the kind of "fellow believers" you'd want in the first place. Or is that too logical for these people?

So, this guy thinks it's OK to make people believe a vaguely hand-shaped gas cloud in space is an evidence of God's existence and calls Snopes a bad, bad website for doubting it, while in the same time, he makes an awkward comparison between religious faith and kids believing in Santa Claus(e).

Hardly a good way to make a point for religion, if you ask me.

While he's at it, I'm surprised he doesn't defend the various divine "apparitions" in cheese sandwiches, pizzas, frying pans, rust stains, chewing gums or banana skins.

Comment: Ok, I am agreement that illegal immigration into AZ must stop.
The federal government prefers to sit on their butt and do nothing, thanks
to a bunch of very cowardly politicians. BUT, the pictures of the garbage
that is being left behind near Tucson must be cleaned up. AZ doesn't have
the money? It is not "my" job" ? The environment is being threatened yet
again, by people who don't give a damn, so unfortunately AZ and the people
of AZ have this dumped in their front yard and have to clean up after the
immigrants. I know, I know, doesn't seem fair-why should we have to clean
up their mess. We shouldn't, but the fact remains that mess needs to be
cleaned up, so AZ if need be, form a volunteer group, groups sponsored by
businesses, anything, so one problem does not become another. Don't let
this junk be swept into the river/ocean. This is an easy fix. Hard work,
yes, but fixable right now. Some of the those back packs could even be
used for kids who can't afford them and recycle them. Maybe the Sierra
group that is local would be willing to do it. But somebody has to-I would
but I am in Il and I know, east for me to say.

Maybe we could find a source of cheap labor somewhere to clean it up?

Comment: article on B of A credit cards to 'Illegal or undocumented
aliens"

why be upset......if U were a business owner......allowing "them" credit
means "they" can purchase your goods and services.....Is not that
Capitalism at its core??

The more U integrate "them" into our culture & society, the more chance U
have of them obeying laws, and paying taxes, and working, and hopefully
supporting our great country.

We have an Immigration Challenge in USA, as do most countries.
We must solve it by COMPREHENSIVE Reform...not by BIGOTRY!!!

The countries in Big Trouble, have NO IMMIGRANTS COMING IN....
they must make overtures to get them...like Sweden, Norway,
Denmark.....and most come from middle east or south east asia.

We must have a guest worker status, which puts immigrant on the path to
Citizenship.....the more workers, the more taxes they pay, more goods they
buy, more sales tax they pay, more education they give to their children,
who then get better jobs, and buy homes, and pay property taxes,
and increase our economy......all societies need a constant flow of
immigrants at the bottom who have a chance to move up....its what has
always made our country great...

Please respond with facts and figures and well researched thought.

PS: What did JESUS teach about borders or the "Least of My brethern."

Comment: From our perspective in Canada, the dummying down in the USA
started under the direction of Mr. Bush. His legacy will no doubt prove
to history that he was the most unable president in the history of the
USA. Then to follow Mr. Bush, the party of the right presents Sarah Palin.
I feel, she would take the country to the depths ever unheard of in the
USA. The selection of Mr. Obama was a reaction to the work of Mr. Bush and
his cohorts, particularly Mr. Cheney. It is sad to see a nation that has
so much pride, go down, down in the perception of the entire world. The
country deserves Mr. Obama and I hope the other powers at be in the USA
will be patient amd give him support and surely not to throw Sarah Palin
at him the next round.
Thank you for listening

Comment: My parents send me this drivel from Florida where they are
enjoying their golden years. The 8 Bush years have plunged this country
into its current state of disarray. I used to watch Beck when he was on
CNN and found him mildly entertaining. Since he changed over to the dark
side I can no longer stomach his inane rantings. Rush has always been a
jackass, but he should soon be incarcerated. O'reilly sometimes has
something pertinent to say, yet I believe that the string-pullers
sometimes limit him. I read this shit all of the time, and I just want to
say that it would be nice if we could all just "get along".

Comment: I am a retired Disabled Army Sgt. When I retired I received a
retirement check from Defence Finance & Accounting every Month. Lets say
the amount is $1,000.00. I have a service connected disibility that is
rated at 40%. This means that I should receive a check from the Veterans
Administration for $400.00, (40% of my check). What happens is that 40% of
my retirement check is removed and given to the V.A. to give back to me as
my disibility check. If I had not retired from the ARMY I would receive a
Disibility check every month for the amount of $540.00. If I had retired
from any other place I still would have received a check from the V.A plus
the retirement from that company. The V.A. check would not be deducted
from any other retirement. Why does the Government take money from my ARMY
retirement check, give it to the V.A. and call that my disibility
compensation????? The onle benifit i get is now the $540.00 is Tax
Exzempt!!!!! This should be ILLEGAL!!!

How on earth do you deal with some of these people?
Some of these letters are downright rude! I'd be calling them a bunch of nasty names by now.

Fair play! You've got to give the OP credit on how it segues from a lower case complaint about insurance costs to an UPPER CASE RACIST RANT. That's the sign of an experienced blitherer.

Comment: In regard to your article on the folding of the flag I do not
need some brainiact savant to tell me the meaning of our flag folding
traditions. I am a US Marine. I learned the meaning in the Corps, you
folks should be working in the White House, they could use your sense of
"spin". No worries, I hear the White House is still Hiring!

Comment: the hardships American citizens have attempting to recieve ANY
help financially or medically and then some. We went through a process to
come to America! It took time, money and alot of prayers and planning for
my family to move to this country. For someone to enter this country
without going through the process and recieving their medical care all the
way up to recieving housing free...Something is very wrong with this
picture. Is my country and home now aactually telling me and other
families that would like to move to America that if I come Illegally, as
opposed to legally, that I would recieve everything free and without
working for it? I, as a permanent resident of America(not Citizen although
I"ve been here since 1976 and was 4 when we came)do not have any rights to
voting or being heard politically, financially, medically or otherwise in
America, while illegal immigrants have everything handed to them on a
silver platter? Not only that, but of they are not satisfied with their
treatment, they can complain and actually SUE about it?....wow.
