    What a shocker you would try to downplay it while hiping the alleged republican threats.

    The results come from an online Harris Poll involving 2,320 adults who were surveyed online between March 1 and March 8 by Harris Interactive, a market research firm. Respondents were read each of 15 statements and asked whether they thought they were true or false.

    Seriously? You buy this garbage?

    BINGO! Yet, each side is so blinded, they blame it on each other.

    Cantor is Jewish. Most likely some racist nutjob took a shot at his campaign office this week.

    That is unfortunate and thankfully the incident happened around 1:00 AM and thus no one was in the office at the time. This incident does not change the fact that Republicans do need to ratchet down their rhetoric though. There are some very dangerous people out there and when you have Republicans and their operatives out there screaming "Socialism", "Communism", "Fascism", and claiming the health bill will kill your grandmother, then they are acting irresponsibly and practically inciting violence. The fact that some nutjob took a shot at Cantor's office does not change that.

    I didn't say bullets were ALWAYS a solution. I said it depended who was in front of them.

    Do you want to imply that all uses of a firearm are problematic? that's another thread.

    I'm suggesting that there are a lot of people in America today who have some whacked out ideas...are you going to argue that?

    You should check the dedicated thread about this. Right is one of the best people on this forum at rather objectively viewing polls for their accuracy and legitimacy and being straight about it, even when it hurts his side. He pretty much shows why its an attrociously unscientific mess.

    He points to a pew one that is a good bit more reliable, though it doesn't ask about the anti-christ question, it does show something like a whopping ~40% less people think Obama is a muslim then what the Harris poll showed, which begs to question what the real number would be in regards to the "anti-christ" question. It also showed that roughly the same amount of people believed 9/11 was an inside job. Both were in the 10-15% range.

    I suppose the comment was so broad speaking, I was kind of thinking "well who decides whose in front of them?"

    But I do see your point. I almost have to agree in those circumstances that I overlooked earlier.
