Comment: I wonder what politicians received campaign contributions from
the manufacturer of the quart ziplock bags now mandated in air travel.
Liquids in and of themselves may be a threat - but there is NO way
mandating use of a baggie lessens threat of terrorist activity. If a
traveler has nothing but one small lip gloss - they MANDATE it go in a
quart ziplock baggie!

Ziploc != Baggie. S.C. Johnson makes Ziplocs and Hefty makes Baggies.

Okay, Mr. Nutbar, no more voting for you. Anyone who can't tell the difference between "treason" and "dissent", "disagreement" or "freedom of speech" should not be allowed to have any political influence.

Comment: After reading the responses (U.S. currency "errors", e.g.), is it
any wonder that people belive these "things" without questioning? How
did they ever graduate from middle school? And they're allowed to vote,
for goodness sake!

Comment: Never did care for Oprah, and this article puts the icing on the
cake. People of America better wake up and realize
what is going on.

There will be false Prophets but those that are true believers have
nothing to fear. God is in charge and always
will be. The Jesus I know and love, died for our sins along
time ago, arose from the dead to live for ever. No others can take his
place. No one else can preform miracles such as He did. WAKE UP FOLKS!!!

Comment: No way should we reward illegal aliens with social security
benefits. Give it to those who have worked and contributed all these
years. A lot of U.S. citizens could use a few more dollars with the cost
of gasoline, food, and prescription drugs -- getting back some of the
money we put in. Why should we foot the bill for them? This is
outrageous. Where are their brains?

Comment: Non-citizens of the U.S.A. should not be eligible for any federal
or state assistance, retirement, medical subsides, food stamps, special
schooling incentives, or any other public assistance. If they are in the
U.S.A. illegally they are breaking the law & should be treated as such. If
they are a non-citizen who is legally in the U.S.A.- they still should not
be entitled to the services provided to citizens. We as a nation simply do
not have the resources to do this. This is well documented & a reality
that many simply refuse to admit. The absences of acceptance does not
change the reality.

You mean by being given housing and food at the expense of the nation?

So if I die, Barbara shouldn't be able to collect any Social Security from the fund I've been paying into for 30+ years?

Comment: What happened to freedom of speech....This is America, follow out
rules and laws, if you don't like what is going on in our free world, quit
messing it up and go back to your country. Funny how you can accept an
education from MSU and I am sure you are not paying what the others are
paying, and still complain about what is upsetting you due to a professor
who probably had more rights to say what he said than anyone. I have a
daughter that graduated from MSU, we paid out of state tuition for four
years, and I am glad the university is backing Professor Wichman, good for
them. Stick to your guns MSU, be strong and back our freedom, I am tired
of being "politically correct" it is time we as AMERICANS stand up for our
rights and what we truly believe in...

You know, it's amusing (or pathetic) to note how often the following scenario plays out in public:

-------------------------------------

Person/Group A expresses an unpopular viewpoint about some U.S. political issue.

Person/Group B tells A to shut up and get out of the country if they don't like America.

Supporters of A call for condemnation of B's comments.

Supporters of B claim B's "right to free speech" is being suppressed.

-------------------------------------

This is America, where the right to free speech includes the right to demand that other people stop engaging in speech you don't want to hear!

What I'd like to know is why the supporters of A don't say - "Our soldiers are fighting for freedom of speech - why do you hate America" in a sort of capture the flag move.

Or is there a rule that the first person to claim to be standing for America wins - sort of a conversational call of "shotgun!"?

Of course in Australia traditionally the argument has gone:

Person/Group A expresses an unpopular viewpoint about some Australian political issue.

Person/Group B asks A "are youse some sorta poofta".

Supporters of A say "you wanna go do ya mate?".

Supporters of B say "yeah I'll have a go".

Supporters of A say "do you know who you're pickin?"

Supporters of B say "Nah, whom I pickin"

Supporters of A say "you find out mate, you find out"

Some short time later the police are called.
