Based on plenty of time to observe party strategy, explain how making such a determination wouldn't be credible.

    Yes, there is a distinction between a group of people actually being a threat to America and someone BELIEVING a group is a threat to America.

    Most of us have ideas of how America should be, and anyone who disagrees or starts leading the country in a different direction is sometimes automatically labeled as a "threat to America"... depending on how dedicated people are toward their causes or how strongly people are against a different side.

    Some people need to realize they aren't the only ones with ideas for this country, and should be at the very least willing to hear out the other side's arguments calmly and quietly while being mature and civil.

    and the distinction is made with what I've been talking about... credible evidence to suggest an actual threat. I don't care to entertain loonies with partisan proclamations simply due to the letter next to a candidates name. I'm talking specifically about reasoned/credible arguments that suggest a candidate/party philosophy (given a political climate) is a threat to this country. That can happen. For instance: You don't go electing someone who's all for a pre-emptive military solution to threats while we're hunkered down with on-going conflicts & an economic slump. That doesn't mean the person (from a holistic view) is a threat to the country... just not the best at the current time.

    Somewhat agree... so it'd be nice if we started with the Presidential candidates. You do realize we have a resident in the WH whose ideas and background were papered over, and was eagerly defended by the press?

    And Obama is deaf. After Brown's win, a signal to Obi and his two other stooges, what did they do? They forced ObiKare down our throats using bribes and without reading the bill. How civil of them.

    When you have that occurrence, and the elected one begins unraveling the American Fabric, calm and quiet become replaced with anger, and resentment, and rightly so. Mature & civil... is that how Obi and his Stooge behaved during the past 2-years? Spare me.

    And on another note: Liebowitz's non-political Rally... LOL... has been quasi-endorsed by Obama... LOL

    I'm mostly confused why you want to take the time to use his other name when Stewart takes less effort.

    When I say "some people" I am not only referring to people on the right.

    Zimmer you still have not responded to my questions on your use of Jon Stewart's less commonly used name. Unless you want people to view you as a bigot I recommend you redeem yourself.

    And this rally is obviously politically motivated. What would make you think it is being marketed as non-political?

    Bigot? Using the guy's name? ROTFLOL... Like being a racist for calling Obi... Barack Hussein Obama? Oy vey.

    Thought I read it somewhere.

    It is "ludicrous" to equate Stewart's "nonpartisan sanity" with Beck's "partisan madness," says Arianna Huffington at The Huffington Post.

    They are really taking parody to the next level, and I really can't wait for it. I wish I could go.

    I'd also like to hear why people feel the need to call Obama "Barrack Hussein Obama" in casual conversations. Do they call Bush "George Walker Bush" in casual conversations? Or how about calling Reagan "Ronald Wilson Reagan"?

    I have to admit people's use of Obama's full name, or your use of Stewart's technical name, in a conversation where it is unnecessary suggests to me a more mischievous intent. But I'll wait for a rebuttal.

    I'm sure you know there is a difference between "non-political" and "non-partisan". Was there a typo somewhere?

    The rally will be on Comedy Central (possibly live) so you can still watch.


    Another Update: 207,000 people "attending" on the facebook page. I'm willing to bet at least half of those, plus many more who don't use the events option on facebook, will be there.
