    Oh, you don't know? There are several hundred topics about it on this forum alone.

    Don't try to bait me.

    That's like me asking "why are you (or conservatives, or reps, or whatever) so ignorant and blind? It's a genuine question... what fuels this brainless activity and disregard for common sense and accountability?"

    Go away.

    How so? I asked a general question about the extremists from your side, and based that off the anger I see here in this thread. You proceeded to be angry and hateful and when I pointed that out, you call me ignorant?

    You have issues. Big issues. In fact, I'd say you are part of the problem in your ideology. But then, I already knew that by how rabid and hysterical you get whenever confronted in even the most genuine of ways.

    Re: Does bush deserve to have a shoe thrown at him?

    When Bush is out of office, I'd like to see him and Dick Cheney indicted. I believe they committed fraud on congress and the American people, and I believe he deliberately duped congress to allow an illegal invasion of Iraq. I was certain they'd both be impeached years ago. Instead, they were reelected. I could not believe it.

    That said, if the president of another country... even an unpopular president... was in the USA under our protection, and was attacked in that manner by an American reporter, our country would be ashamed and embarrassed. Secret service heads would roll.

    I don't like seeing a sitting president, whether I like him or not, attacked. I may not respect Bush, but I respect the office of the president. And like others here, I wonder how security didn't notice a reporter taking his shoes off in the middle of a press conference, then standing like statutes as the guy got two solid throws it. I'm just glad there wasn't a bomb in those shoes. As much as I'd like to throttle Bush personally, I do not want to see an American president assassinated ever again. Once was quite enough, so I find it difficult to be blaise or amused by stuff like this.

    I might be wrong, but what from I saw of the video, his bodyguards ran in from another room just as he'd ducked the second shoe. Why weren't they right there wth him, knowing that he was giving a speech in place with a lot of hostile feeling towards the US?

    Keep you feigned outrage of the shoe incident to yourself. You lost your credibility when you first opened your mouth. You go blind when Pelosi sells the American people this lame $700B bailout.

    Alright....so I can believe that Jallman and I agree on stuff. I can even believe that ludahai, SgtRock and I agree on stuff. But American? Alright time to become a Christian again.

    Thanks, but I think I'll continue to exercise one of the few rights left after the Bush administration... the right to issue an opinion, whether you happen to like it or not.

    I've never said a word on this forum about Pelosi... she's useless... nor have I mentioned the bailout, so you're simply making stuff up at this point.

    Have a nice day.
