    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    Sheriff Dupnik committed the high crime of right wing treason - he spoke the truth about their own failings.

    She's not a classic beauty. She's beautiful because she is a child, and you can see light and life and happiness in her.

    I don't think the rhetoric is any worse now than it has been over the past 230 years. In 1804, Alexander Hamilton (former SECTRES) and Aaron Burr (the sitting VP), fought a dual and Hamilton was killed. Why? Because Hamilton had made the claim that Burr was, "A dangerous man, and one who ought not be trusted with the reins in government".

    We've had 4 presidents assissinated--Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley and Kennedy. We've had two presidents wounded in assissination attempts--Teddy Roosevelt and Reagan. There have been actual attempts--Jackson, Lincoln (1861), Franklin Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy (1960), Nixon, Ford (twice), Bush Sr. and Clinton (three times).

    I think there have been 6 assissinations/assissination attempts upon congressmen.

    So, this hardly some kind of recent phenomenon. It would be the pinnacle of ignorance to blame this on anyone's political rhetoric. Anyone who believes that political rhetoric is the singular reason for these kinds of acts, should spend less time talking and more time soul searching.

    I was watching the press conference at the Med Center, and they're saying she hasn't talked yet, but is responsive. They're going to try to fight the swelling by taking part of her skull off, so she'll be in the hospital for a while.

    Also, about the murderer, his 2 favorite books are Mein Kampf and the Communist Manifesto (according to his Myspace page). At this point, police suspect an accomplice who was caught on security camera. Loughner might also be tied to the hate group American Renaissance, though they've denied he was ever a member.

    I would like to remind everybody that although it is easy to focus on the child, 5 other adults were killed who had equal right to life as she did. We forget about their families. They matter too. Let's take a moment to remember ALL the deceased in this tragedy. If you think about it, everyone there was there because they wanted to talk to this lady, they loved this country enough to care and be there on the corner discussing the issues.

    Those were some AWESOME AMERICANS if you ask me.
