    99.9% of the time I'd wholeheartedly agree with you here. However, this man's family is just a vile and disgusting as he was. Frankly, giving them a dose of their own medicine would simply be justice.

    Actually, I am very happy.

    I say we just line the road to his final plot. Respectfully flying flags flown the proper way, holding sings that say "God loves fags" and "Thank God for a dead Fred Phelps". We can even arrange a Freedom Riders escort for him.

    I will not come down to your level and be jeer at your passing.

    It is rough for me to skill of the dead. He too likely cared for puppies and people who loved him. But if there is an after life where justice reins, it may not be a welcoming place. But that is for someone else to judge. Eternity is a long time.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Actually, I have nothing personal against the man. He is entitled to his opinion, and I fight for that right.

    But when his actions cause pain and heartache to fallen servicemembers, then I take great offense. Those actions were done at his command to his sheep (followers), and he should be ashamed for the pain he has caused others.

    But condolences will fall upon deaf ears when it comes to his followers. They are all convinced everybody else is going to hell, so I say leave them to their miserable pitiful existence.

    I just hope that like many of these cults, it dies out now that the founder is gone. There is no need for such hateful people.

    Words without action are just words. Giving Phelps more power is just silly. Let people like Phelps say whatever they want to say and expose themselves. It's as if some people actually believe that if evil thoughts are not articulated, evil does not exist.
    Funny, I thought actively picketing and antagonizing family members of dead military men and women is an ACTION, not simply "words".

    If you want to be happy about it, that's your option of course, but doing to Fred what Fred did unto others makes you better than Fred.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    You did not live in peace, and wallowed in hatred, so rest in peace and hate no more.

    Actually, there is a huge difference.

    It is called respect.

    You see, I am completely able to oppose or protest something, without making a total ass of myself. He and his followers were completely unable to do so.



    If you can't see the difference between peacefully holding signs and these WBC tools who get in people's faces and demand the right to protest the funeral of somebody, then I am sorry for you.

    Re: Fred Phelps Dead

    My joy is tempered at the reality his "church" still functions. My happiness depressed by the reality his evil continues.

    May those that loved the man and will feel deeply the sorrow of his passing please get hit by a bus.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I do not see a difference between demonstrating at one funeral and demonstrating at another funeral.
