    Every word in my post was a direct copy paste from on of Chappy's posts, adjusted for partisan leaning.

    Why do I not figure a supporter of health care reform would fire a shot at Congress? Because, all the supporters I know are pretty happy with Congress these days.
    Ah, so your theory is that a Republican sought out the office of another Republican which was not in DC and shot at it to express his displeasure with Congress? Why are you defending terrorism? Do you hate America?
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), who has a weakness for violent rhetoric, suggested on Monday that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) would bludgeon some lawmakers to death.

    Asked on Fox News Radio how Pelosi would get conservative Blue Dog Democrats to vote for health care reform, Bachmann responded: "She'll either beat them to death, bludgeon them do death ... or she'll try to buy them off."

    Responding to questions over whether Pelosi could call a special session – which Democrats insist won’t happen – and vote on other issues that Republicans may not want to face, such as an expansion of childrens’ health insurance programs, which President Bush and GOP congressional leaders have opposed.

    “She’s gonna bring us back and not deal with it? The American people are gonna hang her,” Boehner said. When pressed further, Boehner said it would “be fine, as long as we get a vote on our bill.”

    It's been going on for years now. You haven't heard them say these things?

    Well in all fairness Bachmann is an idiot, so you can't really listen to her.

    So we shouldn't use metaphors that involve violence in any way now?

    Hey, the Democrats are going to get killed in November. Wait, crap. I just inspired a terrorist or something.

    Re: House GOP No. 2: Someone shot at my office

    on another front, have you seen what we've learned about the housing market in the last few days

    all 3 market indicators---home SALES, home VALUES and home FORECLOSURES are at all time bads

    "home sales are sliding, prices are stalling and foreclosures are rising," according to AP

    worse, the fed next week is gonna end its efforts to hold down mortgage rates, and at the end of the month the tax break for first time buyers expires

    we learned yesterday that new home sales for february fell for the fourth straight month and hit an all time low

    the day before commerce reported that the sales of existing homes also declined, a third straight month, reaching a nadir not seen since july

    foreclosures have topped 300,000 for eleven straight months, with no cellar in sight

    "that's because hundreds of thousands of foreclosed homes have yet to hit the market at deeply discounted prices," reports AP

    according to AP, "THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION'S PROGRAM TO PREVENT FORECLOSURES HAS SO FAR BEEN A DUD"

    "only 170,000 homeowners had completed the loan modification process as of last month, out of 1.1 million who started it over the past year"

    according to tarp inspector general neil barofsky, the man who ratted out tax cheat geithner for ordering aig to keep secrets from the sec, "the program risks helping few... merely spreading out the foreclosure crisis over the course of several years"

    and, according to bloomberg, "MORE THAN HALF OF US BORROWERS WHO RECEIVED LOAN MODIFICATIONS ON DELINQUENT MORTGAGES DEFAULTED AGAIN AFTER NINE MONTHS"

    "the re-default rate of loans modified in the first quarter of 2009 was 51.5 percent by the end of the year, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the Office of Thrift Supervision said in a joint report today"

    the figure climbed to 57.9 when reckoned over the span of the previous 12 months, bloomberg continues

    "the number of homes with mortgage payments at least 60 days late climbed 2.39 million in the fourth quarter, up 13.1 percent from the prior three months and 49.6 percent from the year earlier period, the quarterly Mortgage Metrics report said"

    after all the crap we've been thru to get down here as low as we are, FORECLOSURE RATES ARE STILL RISING

    and at a catastrophic climb

    "about 4.5 million foreclosures filings are expected in 2010, according to RealtyTrac Inc., an Irvine, California-based seller of default data"

    "a government watchdog report [that'd be barofsky] released today criticized the government’s main foreclosure prevention effort, the Home Affordable Modification Program, or HAMP, for 'spreading out the foreclosure crisis' over several years by failing to help enough troubled borrowers"

    see? i told you

    he's concerned that "large amounts of borrowers [will] simply re-default and end up facing foreclosure anyway"

    in other words, too many folks, if you continue to bail them out, will just walk away, take the money and just walk away

    ya think?

    how many of us warned that if you just go and bail out all these folks, so many of em our friends and family members, within 6 months they'll be right back where they were, on the phone and begging for more help

    so, what's obama's solution, this time?

    well, first he has to go off to iowa to SELL health care

    LOL!

    and then, what next?

    why, just more of the same, natch

    he's going to "require lenders to temporarily slash or eliminate mortgage payments for many borrowers who are unemployed," reports wapo

    unbelievable

    While I am doubtful that this is a case of political violence, I will repeat my opinion that political violence whether conservative or liberal or otherwise … redounds to the great discredit of the perpetrator's purpose.

    But, of course, to answer your question, I love America, and, lately I've been feeling better about it's prospects, more and more despite all the conservative histrionics lately.
