Comment: This has got to be one of the sickest article I have ever read,
no one would stop me from taking a Bible or Cross or anything pertaining
to God, to my Son or Daughter that is over in another country fighting and
got wounded for us and Obama. They would have to kill me before I would
deny my father in Heaven or anything pertaining to God, this world is full
of Lucifer's and God will take care of them one day and sorry to say none
too soon, how can we let them tell us what to do as far as worshipping, I
even told my child if he wanted to pray in school no one can stop him he
can talk to God anytime he wants to. This is the worse shape we have ever
gotten into we need to get back to the basics and take back our Country,
instead of letting some Government who doesn't have our beliefs or no
morals run us. As far as I am concerned there is no one out there to vote
for a new president, I don't think either one of them are right for the
position.

Comment: this is a disgrace to our Nation - Under God. My dad was a
veteran in the second world war, and both husbands I had were veterans,
and my grandson is in service. This is a disgrace and a shame that we are
putting our Lord and Savior out of the "hospitals" that these young adults
come to after being injured in their "fight for freedom". While they fight
for freedom on other soil, their freedom here on this soil is being
denied.

Shame on the government for letting this happen. And shame on Obama.

May God have mercy on "us" all.

What's with the quotation marks? Aren't veteran hospitals real hospitals? Aren't the soldiers actually fighting for freedom? And who is meant to be left out when you are talking of "us"?

Comment: Sheldon Adelson has contributed $10,000,000 to a super PAC to be
used to get Mitt Romney elected.

Why do people such as this say that they will give any amount of money to
"get Pres. Obama out of the White House"? Would this have happened if he
were white? There hasn't been nearly as much animosity in previous
elections as is happening now. I am 76 years old and a life long
Republican and I am beginning to be ashamed to be a member of the
Republican Party. I am seriously thinking of changing my registration
because of the behavior of Republicans in Congress as well as the behavior
of many Republicans and the far right across the nation. They are
beginning to remind me of a certain party in the 1930s in Germany! Heaven
help us!

Comment: How about an update on the ObamaCare disaster.
So how badly did we actually get screwed. I didn't read
much of anything in there that I would agree with. As far as I can tell,
from access to bank accounts, Congress exempting itself again, taking care
of pukes (ACORN), and supporting illegal invaders or aliens, what exactly
changed? I'm almost 60, have paid taxes all my life, and really think
arming myself and moving some money out of the country is starting to
sound not only sane but very prudent. And I thought we dodged a bullet
with Clinton. All we had to worry about was oral sex. Not an affirmative
action flunky with no experience and socialistic tendencies.

Comment: The police officer who kicked the handcuffed woman should never
be allowed back on the force. We depend on them to not act and do as
criminals do. After all, they are suppose to uphold the laws, I THOUGHT!

What makes anyone think he won't get angry and do it again???
Even criminal don't get off that easy, and our prisons are full of them to
prove it. They are in for doing a lot less...

Comment: Difficult to put this in terms that fit your format, but I have
seen video and print articles that GOP and conservative leaders are
responsible for originating and championing the individual mandate for two
decades. Only to unanimously renounce and denounce it once Democrats had
reluctantly adopted it. This is political chicanery at its worst. I
guess it is the slickest trick in history that snopes doesn't have to
rectify a controversy because one hasn't been initiated. It also speaks
volumes about the liberal mindset, since conservatives would have been all
over such a fundamental flip flop like white on rice. I have seen one
segment on the Rachel Maddow Show and one article in the NYT about
this--nothing on mainstream network news channels. And of course nothing
on snopes. I'll see if I can unearth something in writing by some
conservative zealot claiming the indiv. mandate is strictly a Dem idea,
but I don't even think 1 in ten million of them knows that's not true.

Comment: I just wonder if the article about homeland security will change
your thinking about the direction of this country under Obama. I am a
conservative, but if that and other articles of the same ilk won't make
you think again about your political stance, I don't know what would.
Give me Hillary, but please help us all to get rid of Obama!

Comment: Obama and the 2nd Amendment. You state in the article that an
amendment of the Constitution would be required to repeal the 2nd
Amendment. It would be more accurate to stress the way obama constantly
ignores, bypasses, and rides roughshod over that document; a document
which heretofore had guaranteed our inalienable rights. His total
disregard for the Constitution should frighten even the most devout
liberal.

Comment: Is this America or our we living in Mexico?

Maybe move to MEXICO and someone will speak engish???

Or wait... PAY TAXES????

At this point... might as well be in MEXCI0 since everyting is in spanish
AND then you have to read spanish when you buy an item in the store.

The mexician's get MORE benefits than the americans.

I am from an American Indian tribe and can't get what the illegl mexicanis
get. How "wrong" is that?

I would "love" to hear the answer to that question.

Perhaps if you didn't "quote" words that are "not actually" quotes you might get an "answer" to your "question."

Comment: How do protesters fund their existence ? What is the financial
structure that supports protesters who don't believe in capitalism but
need money to survive? What is the origination of how they see their
uninformed confused cause? There must be a guiding intellectual force at
the pinnacle to the protest pyramid .The principal needs to be discovered
and exposed to the chaos that is rapidly becoming out of control . A
major force in destroying long established social economic foundation of
any society is chaos and violence from within .
What say you ?

Actually most protesters have high priced jobs. That's why they tend to only protest on weekends or on vacation.

Comment: Tim Horton's by no means puts Nicotine or anything else for that
matter in their coffee. It is excellent coffee with natural premium
Arabica Beans from several different countries. I love my Tim Horton's
coffee in the morning. I won't drink Star bucks even if someone paid me
to. It is horrible...my husband calls it over priced piss water. That is
why no one will allow a franchise to be set up here in TX because they
know that Tim Horton's Coffee is the best. My husband is Texan I am
Canadian. I only drink one coffee every day in the morning. We send to
Detroit for two large cans...that lasts about 4 months. So therefore, that
does not qualify for addiction. Whatever people are saying about my home
town of Ontario Canada and Tim Horton's coffee..well they are wrong and
full of Horse dung. Timmies is the best tasting coffee and that is why
people start rumors such as this and tell stories about people being
admitted to hospital with nicotine allergies and blame it on the coffee.
That is horse Dung...That man in that story could've gotten that allergic
reaction from anything...anywhere. So put that in your pipes and smoke it.
It's the best, pure, and wonderful coffee...I am glad my home town serves
it. It was invented by a hockey player in Canada who died in a car
accident but his name Tim Horton lives on. So get over it people with the
rumor and suck it up and move on.

Comment: I like Obama and his platform for America but I don't like is
this changing the American flag and that Obama has no respect for the
flag. I have fought and could have died for our flag and what it stands
for but this stuff about Obama wanting to change the flag and change the
National Anthum is very upsetting. I don't want Romney for President as I
think he is bad for this country but with this I wish I had someone else
to vote for. I am upset and don't know what to do about it. Looks like I
don't have a choice and apparently I don't have a choice.

If this is all true why doesn't Romney come out with it and show what
Obama is doing. That is why i don't believe it. It must be a pack of
lies.

A very unhappy American who loves our country and the way it has been for
all these years. I don't want this change.

What to do?
