    Really, being against repealing Don't Ask, don't tell is discriminatory? Is sexual orientation a civil right? And if so where in the U.S. Constitution?

    Against same sex marriage? Again where is sexual orientation in the Constitution or better yet were is marriage in the Constitution. Every American has the same rights when it comes to marriage, marry anyone of the opposite sex that will have you. I see no discrimination there.

    Where is the proof that she wants to deny civil unions? Again, I would love someone to show me the Constitution where marriage and sexual orientation is defined. Guess I missed that in my civics class.

    Again you assume that I feel the bill was discriminatory, never said that.

    It was needed because the feds did nothing, and still do nothing, and when I say the feds, I say both dems and GOP.

    I do think that if a bigot was not the person who sponsored the bill (pearce), and if a bigoted sheriff was kept out to the picture, and the facts where shown about how the az sector of the border is being over ran daily with drug and human smuggling even dems would have sponsored the bill. Did you know the AZ sector only has 3 k officers to enforce immigration and customs. I think the AZ sector had a 100k incidents, yet they only have a few hundred more officers than the NM who had 50k incidents, and a couple hundred more than the California and Tx sector, who have only 60 to 70 percent of the incidents.

    your imagery is half the time grotesque and more often than that adolescent

    grow up
    Eh what can I say, the guy is supposed to be a history teacher, says he had "no idea" that MLK did his speech at the Lincoln memorial on the same day, and a few days later has King's niece backing him up. I would say that takes a lot of balls to be that disingenious wouldn't you say?

    Yeah, yeah, we get it, anyone associated with the rally today gets smeared. How tolerant of you. So as it is described the rally is non political, and non partisan, so whats wrong with that?
    I've seen bits and pieces of the speeches, still trying to figure out the point of the rally I guess we will see in the next day or so but had it been bi-partisan and non political then why couldn't they have done this at a county fair or oh I dunno, without a bunch of tea party soldiers?

    I disagree. First there is a presumption that all conservatives love Beck. So, why would libs love him? The man is an entertainer, he does what he does to make $$$, nothing more or less.
    I keep hearing this entertainer bit, if he were an entertainer I think he would oh I dunno, say something entertaining and not try to tell people how they should be thinking wouldn't you say?

    As for the Beck rally, I was hoping someone here could point to the Fox Channel that was carrying that rally as I cannot seem to find it on my TV. I keep hearing over and over again that Fox News is a shill for the Republican Party yet I have gone through every channel on my TV and haven't found Fox covering the rally? It must be my local TV provider that is blacking that out for me. Fox News has their normal business programming this morning, the Business Bloc during the rally hours. How can that be?
    I agree. To be well rounded, one must be given all points to ponder. If a media agency claims they are inpartial, then broadcast and let me make my judgements.

    I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
    MLK would be mortified by the content of this particular rodeo-clown's character.

    Still not sure what I think of this rally but I thought it was funny while the gospel singer was on people were either waving or clapping out of sync with each other, or just standing there with their arms crossed with a confused look on their face.

    Btw, Alveda King has little in common with her uncle MLK other than his last name. MLK was for equality for people of all races, ethnicity and gender. Alveda is anti-homosexual and doesn't think homosexuals deserve civil rights. She is also against a woman's rights to choose, even though she herself had two abortions. That puts her in direct opposition to Coretta King, MLK's deceased wife who was a LGTB and women's right activist. Alveda also claims MLK would be a Republican if he were alive today. But the fact of the matter is, MLK didn't endorse any political party because that would have undermined his global message of equality for all people.

    Soooo, it looks to me like Alveda King is going to make an attempt to rewrite MLK's history and legacy at this falldeerall Beck rally tomorrow. And she's going to get paid by the Koch's to do it. So this should be very interestink. Yes, indeedy.

    LOL, nothing non partisan about your post as well as nothing accurate as actual facts prove. Don't blame you from diverting to the Bush/Cheney Adminstration as the current Administration is a failure, complete and utter. Facts will never get in the way of your personal opinion. Noticed that you never offer any facts to back up your claim. That war mongering President got a resolution through a Democrat controlled Senate on a vote that I believe was 76-23. then of course he had a Democrat controlled Congress from 2007-2008 which of course apparently you believe had no power.

    Your opinion regarding what MLK would think of this rally is just that, an opinion. Mine differs in that I believe the man would be proud of all those Americans showing up on the site where he gave his famous speech and showed their love and respect for the country. Hope, Faith, and Charity is being promoted and isn't that what MLK was all about? Wasn't he also about "Restoring Honor?"

    I believe your hatred for GW Bush is clouding your judgment.

    By the way, I don't see a lot of liberals here posting on the rally in D.C. so apparently Beck is doing something right. I assure you if it was negative they would be all over the blogs this morning. What is it, no signs? No political rhetoric? No protestors? No Rowdy behavior? How can that be?
