    Screaming and shouting is to be expected on any heated political topic.

    As for the swastika or racist graffiti question; It should be a crime, but only because someone is defacing private property. Free speech should exist even for people that you don't happen to agree with.

    Unless those people are breaking the law, then yes, I support their right. I also have a right to call them the assholes they are. Freedom means some people are going to be asses, but it is still worth it to be free.

    It's vandalism.

    I agree with letting all sides be heard. I don't agree with completely disrupting a public meeting by shouting over someone who is in the middle of speaking.

    That may be common on Jerry Springer show but doesn't belong in public assembly where all sides wish to be heard from without intimidation.

    Nobody agrees with it, but it will continue to happen in any heated discussion that people are passionate about political or otherwise. Everyone wants to be heard at once.

    It's the job of the moderator to moderate those kinds of discussions. Maybe they need a gong or something.

    People need to calm down and get ahold of their emotions or leave if they can't talk civilly.

    I know many people will not believe this because it comes under the heading of knowledge something many Neo-Socialists lack and in it's place they have chosen to ape the opinions and actions of their Extreme Leftist Socialist leader Der Fuhrer in Chief Obama.
    The swastika dates back thousands of years and was a symbol that came in many forms representing good positive meanings until it was co opted by the first major National Socialist Movement of Germany 1919 to 1945.
    I still say the Swastika on the sign was painted by not just any old Democrat but by one of Scott's people at his request, just as the Black man with the "Obama is a Nazi" sign outside Dingell's office turned out to be a Dingle operative and was caught handing out PRO Dingell material at a later meeting. Oops. Socialist caught again.
    Now they claim Socialisim is being used in place of the N word and I am forced to agree. Obama is the main biggest N around. But not what you think. It has nothing to do with racism as the N stands for NAZI because Obama is headed down the path blazed by the National Socialist Movement of Nazi Germany and can also be seen in the actions of Obama pal Hugo Chavez.
    Keep in mind that the Swastika thing was brought up by Pelosi who lied when she claimed people were carring Swastikas at town hall meetings. IT NEVER HAPPED SHE'S STILL A LIAR! And if the N fits Wear it Nazis.

    If the use of the N=Nazi word offends you need to call the DNC and Pelosi to stop bringing it up in their lies. I find Obama, Pelosi and Reid the Anti American Axis of lies and evil to be offensive.

    I stopped reading after this. Anytime some one starts with something so obviously over the top insulting, they are just talking to themselves. Posts like this are the internet form of masturbation.

    People idiotically attempting to compare Obama to Hilter because of the health care plan and the issues with the auto industry are no less offensively hyper partisan and frankly disagraceful than those who attempted to compare Bush to Hilter becasue of questionable detentions, increase in the governments ability to do surveliance on citizens, "free speech zones", and offensive war stylings.

    Councilman, you breath air just like Hitler. You're heading down the path of nazi-ism apparently.

    Organized hate groups tend to use different means to intimidate victims.

    The idea that conservatives can somehow be blamed for is pretty stupid. The idea that this man did it to himself is equally stupid.

    Good grief, people, stop drinking the damn koolaid.
    Fine. I agree that we don't know who did it, but the rhetoric, signs, and general attitude being displayed lately doesn't hold much confidence that it wasn't from conservatives. The idea isn't too far fetched given the current climate and actions.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.
