    Is that a better use of, "some"?
    Some people, like you constantly use overgeneralizations with no basis in fact, and then some people, like you get all defensive when they get confronted on their error. Some people, like you, need to understand that their own bias is just that and not factual at all.

    Much better use of the word "some".

    My advice to you, son, is: don't worry about it. Moderate a little more and worry about my generalizations alot less. More is needed of the fore and less of the latter. That is all!

    ROFL!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah nice, show me where in any thread I tried to paint all conservatives as the same thing because of the actions of ONE... I am partly conservative as I am partly liberal because I do not prescribe to the dogmatic labels that some americans label eachother

    The consensus of pretty much everyone in this thread is that the Congressman was flat out wrong to do what he did. If hazlnut wants to keep defending him, point out the flaws in that argument.
    There are a couple things here that I don't care for.
    One, the close up the congressman shows you the face of an alocholic. Of course he felt he could man handle the student as the student looked to weigh a buck twenty. Naturally he wouldn't grab someone like myself or others who weigh 200 pounds.

    Two, why didn't the kid just tell him his name and what school he was from? It is obvious he had ulterior motives.

    The congressman had no right to jerk him around and the student should have told his name and what school he was from. But some of you have the partisan blinders on so tight you have to squint.

    my advice to you is, unless you have something to ad, other than brow-beating, do your job as a moderator and leave the rest to the grownups.

    I say this guy's career is over.
    Good too.

    Don't know about anyone else, but I wanted to reach into the screen, grab the representative by the scruff of the neck and put my fist through his face.

    Then contrast it to this:
    YouTube - "Civic Engagement": Congressman Bob Etheridge

    "He says get involved in civic... something that's happening in your community..."

    These kids did and asked a simple question... and well... Boom goes the dynamite!

    .
    Whhhoooa. That was some straight-up drugs and/or schizophrenic stuff right there.
