    Well if someone is provoking violence against you, are you going to talk about the eventual act of violence against you as if it were a random act of violence? Or perhaps you would correlate the two circumstances?

    It's the gang that couldn't shoot straight … they got the wrong office.

    And, maybe there's another more important observation than merely that these people appear to be utterly foolish in their misdeeds. And that is, when one attempts to victimize political opponents: the act itself reflects not on the character and politics of the target but rather that of the aggressor.

    These recent acts bring discredit and disfavor to the supporters of health care reform; whatever merits their arguments may have had, they are brushed aside by the horror and dismay people feel towards these arbitrary acts of violence.

    More important, we have entered a new era of domestic terrorism and some liberals have forgotten the central principle that under girds our
    representative democracy: everyone has the right to vote their conscience.

    Today, those memory impaired liberals are rapidly becoming the greatest terrorist threat to our Republic and our way of life.
    Where is the apologism for violence? And am I to understand bricks flying through windows can't kill people?

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Did the Republicans think they could whip people into a frenzy, starting with Sarah Palin during the campaign and ending with Republican congresspeople waving the don't tread on me flag from the balcony of the capital as the health care bill got passed?



    Did the GOP really think that encouraging people with guns and signs threatening gun violence that a gun would never be fired in the name of politics?



    Lie with dogs and you get fleas.

    Time for the Republicans in congress to tone down the threatening rhetoric and calm their followers down.
    Enough with the dirty, deadly and disgusting oil and coal. Let's get clean, let's go green. Enough is enough!!

    those ill-mannered simplistic yahoos, clinging to their boom-sticks and sky-god. they're not nuanced enough to know that when you want to intimidate someone with the threat of violence you do it with thousands of your new best friends for support. truly only a regressive unevolved fundamentalist would hold on to individuality enough to want to do something on his own.

    So where are my friends from the other thread, about teabaggers spitting on Democrats and throwing bricks in their offices, saying that you can't believe everything you read and if its not on video the reports can't be trusted?

    If there's no video, it's a lie!

    If they don't show up it just shows they are OK if their side does it but not yours. None of which changes the fact what this guy did was an idiot and should be charged with any crime he committed.

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

    The policy of congressional Republicans is to praise the fortitude of the anti-health care reform demonstrations and disregard their death threats and vandalisms; even when these death threats are etched onto the signs they are carrying.

    And apparently also to complain when the reverse occurs and violence is directed at them.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
