    Not much.
    Obviously not practical, but we on both sides need to speak out against the nuts more often, and more completely. No "I don't like this, but...", or "but you guys did it too", just "this is wrong, the end". Some one shooting at a congressman's office is wrong, end of story. I don't care why, I don't care his motivation, none of that matters.

    The problems right now are not the media, not how things are being portrayed, they are in the fact that both sides have forgotten winning is not the only thing, and that just because we disagree does not make us enemies. The only way to end this is when us normal people step up and say "stop, enough" and don't put up with it any more.

    Indeed, my belief about this incident is that someone opposed to health care reform demonstrated his opinion by firing a shot at Congress. The perpetrator didn't discriminate between Democrats and Republicans.

    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.

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 think what I'm saying is that, for whatever reasons, a significant amount of Americans, from both sides of the political spectrum, have what I would consider rather absurd belief paradigms. And, they appear to be equally distributed on the right and the left. Whether they're being handled differently by the media, I have to say I don't watch enough television to be a good judge of that.

    But I would say that I tend to view it rather even-handedly. I certainly don't see the right as being any crazier than the left has been over the past 10 years.

    Psst, your prejudice is showing.

    I take the reverse position. We should ignore the nuts on our side AND on the other side.

    Wow, I thought bigotry went out of style in the 1960's.

    You can't "fire a shot at Congress" unless you fire a shot at the Capitol. You can fire a shot at a person, or a person's office. A person who in this case is a Republican who supporters of health care couldn't be less happy with.


    It's pretty disgraceful that you'd get so angry about people you think are trying to take the blame off of someone who attacked a Democrat (Perriello), and then do exactly that for a Republican. At first I thought you must have been sarcastic, just to make a point.

    It seems that bigotry is wrong, except when they do it.
