    I'm not claiming that you personally said either of those quotes (though it wouldn't surprise me if you agreed with the sentiment), but simply pointing out that both sides engage in the exact same type of "fearmongering." You and your side tend to see your arguments as logical and the other side's as fearmongering, while the other side does the same.

    And, gee, I remember you and others here doing that with Glenn's Rally when you had no clue what was going to happen.
    No one really knows what will happen at the rally. Stewart actually invited Bill O'reilley to attend the event last night on the Daily Show. We don't even know who the speakers will be yet.

    There will undoubtedly be comedy involved but I'm hoping there will be an honest message of "tone it down America" going on.

    As for Colbert's rally, there will very likely be more comedy going on than anything else.

This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." óJohn Adams

    Actually, I don't. I would really like to see the tea partiers get somewhere, our 'two-party system' is a joke.

    I am tired of the assumption that I have a side. You see some portion of liberal, and you make a pronouncement. This **** really has to stop. Nobody sees anyone as a person anymore, or so it seems. It's all a stamp on the forehead and "Oh, you believe ______, therefore you are _______, and all said parties beliefs and behaviors will be attributed to you."

    I think the event will just be a circus .... making fun of our country and its citizens in the midst of the giants who made this country great. Making fun of an event (Restoring Honor) that was nothing but inspirational singing, great speakers and honoring those who do good things in our country. Making fun of that won't resonate with the majority of the people in America. I think most people will find it stupid and maybe even disrespectful.
    So your opinion is that this rally will be making fun of a bunch of stuff and thus you assign what you perceive to be potential disrespect as a purpose of the rally, and then proffer potential left over litter on the lawn as a proxy indicator of this.

    I'm not basing my statements off the fact that you're on the left, I'm basing my statements off of the things you've said re: the tea party/Glenn Beck. You criticized Glenn Beck for what you describe as fearmongering, yet you talk about how the right wing poses a threat to the country.

    From this very thread, referring to Glenn Beck:

    I've never been afraid for the life of a President like I am now. I just figured Secret Service blah-blah, everybody will be fine yada-yada. But people Truly Despise Obama. And they are armed, and making noise about taking him down so yes. This isn't just your perception. Things are ugly over here.

    Thanks for the clarification.
    What's that you just said about lumping people into groups?

    Even so, you were absolutely right, the right wing is a threat to the country.

    No not the right wing. Part of the right wing yes, but not them all.
