    RockGuitar: Please provide factual proof for your unfounded insinuations. Please...just one actually proved by documentation? I will be sure to tell all by black conservative friends they are racist. I am sure you must think very highly of Congressman Lt. Col West?

    If someone shot into your car, odds are HIGH that the vehicle occupants are also guilty of something.

    jh: never heard of any democratic reps and senators using violent, treasonous rhetoric to forward their cause. stop supporting the palinistas and the reichwing. their agenda is nothing but racism wrapped in an american-flag made by some SE Asian sweatshop.

    You must be living in a box if you don't think the far left is throwing stones. The simple fact that they are blaming the killings in Arizona on republicans without any hard evidence is outrageous. Your current commander in chief is one of the worst presidents in history for using violent rhetoric.


    It’s on both sides, so stop casting stones if you live in a glass house. If you think it’s okay for illegal's to remain here without consequences, and follow the policies of our current administration you are very misguided.

    I do agree people need to lighten up on Obama some, on November the 2nd, he gave republicans 63 jobs.

    Does Van Jones and Jeremiah Right ring a bell?
