In times like these you have to wonder what Rev. Graham hopes to accomplish with remarks like these.

  1. Things are getting hot in PA

    That Colbert segment was too funny for words.
    And the PA ad is really sticking it to Arlen Specter. I can’t wait to see how that race turns out.

  3. You can’t go wrong pointing out hypocrisy nanny!

    Greetings from the desert. Today, I’m doing some googling about Senators Lieberman and McCarthy (1947-1957). Amazing how many times the two names come up together. More later.

    That should be quite interesting, eprof. I can’t wait for your report.

    It’s sad to see Franklin coasting so far on his father’s shirttails.

    His “one nation under Jesus” during W’s second inaugural got my attention.

    Because we are not that. Some of us are, some of us are not. We are Americans with or without being Christians.

    It’s in the Constitution.

  7. dog I just found it amazing that he was accusing another faith of being bigoted without seeing the irony of his statement!

    Touché, Brian.

    The NYSE is plummeting; it’s down nearly 700 based on the economic turmoil in Greece and the EU. It’s stunning to watch this…. and very worrisome.

    Right-Wing Extremists Take On Local Law Enforcement, Lose

    First, a Tennessee man was arrested after walking into his local county courthouse to try to effect a citizen’s arrest of a grand jury foreman who had refused to investigate President Obama’s legitimacy to serve — an encounter partially caught on video. That enraged one Georgia-based member of the far-right OathKeepers group. Responding to a call from an extremist leader, he drove to Tennessee with an AK-47 in a bid to get his comrade released — only to wind up getting arrested himself.

    Phoenix police chief disputes right’s claim that AZ law is needed because of violent crime

    Whew, stock market losses are staggering. Police Chief of Phoenix says new law not needed — double whew!

  13. The market will recover once things settle down in Greece and the IMF steps in. Frankly unrest for those of us who lived through the 60s and 70s should not be all the surprising.

    Stock Markets Recover From 9% Drop, Finish Day Down About 3%

    Wall Street reeled through a volatile day, with stocks
    closing sharply lower after recoiling from a brief plunge of
    nearly 9 percent. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed
    down 347.80 points or 3.2 percent, and the S. & P. 500 index
    dropped 37.75 points or 3.24 percent, after fears over
    Europe’s debt crisis and computer-driven trading sparked a
    massive selloff. The euro slid to $1.2616 to the dollar, and
    investors fled to Treasuries, gold and other safe-haven
    investments.

    That didn’t take long.

    Down 3.2 per cent is still a significant one day loss, Brian.

      Franklin Graham is a far right-wing phony skunk in the mold of Sarah Palin. In an effort to get more money/publicity he buried his mother at the Billy Graham Library, against her and his father’s wishes.

      Allah will have a special place for him when he dies 😉

    “Right-Wing Extremists Take On Local Law Enforcement, Lose”

    Brian, I posted that at 3:03 this afternoon. Don’t you read my posts?

  17. Most of them, shoot me, I missed it, I’m not perfect.

  18. Besides it’s so chilling it should be seen twice

  19. nannymm

    Sorry, I don’t have a gun. LOL
    As for it being so chilling it should be seen twice, I’ll go with that. 🙂

  20. My favorite part was in the second vid where the psycho talks about having a moment of “christian conversation” with some of the cops.

  21. nannymm

    I almost gagged when I saw that part.
    Rachel thinks that it’s a chilling video, too. She’s covering it right now.

    I just received the following email from Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. This is why she is going to be re-elected here in New York. The woman has guts. She’s willing to stand up and fight. We like that!

    Dear Mary-Margaret,

    Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen told Congress last week to wait to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”

    I must respectfully disagree – and I have a grassroots community of tens of thousands of people just like you who signed my petition and who disagree as well.

    We’re not just talking about statistics here. These decisions will change the lives of our brave gay and lesbian servicemembers who are currently serving in our armed forces. Last year at least 443 of our best and brightest were discharged under this outdated policy and that’s 443 too many.

    You and I agree: “Don’t, Ask, Don’t Tell” is both wrong for our national security and inconsistent with the moral foundation upon which our country was founded. In the halls and elevators of Congress, I am privately and publicly urging my colleagues to repeal this policy this year before we lose one more man or woman to this policy.

    My preference is to put repeal into the 2011 Defense Authorization bill. That way, opponents would need 60 votes to defeat it. The Pentagon may want to wait to study the effects of the repeal before it is implemented, but that does not mean we can’t vote for repeal this year.

    In the meantime, Speaker Pelosi has called upon President Obama to put a moratorium on all discharges. She’s absolutely right.

    Every single day we ask our brave gay and lesbian servicemembers to lie about who they are and who they love. This must end now – not next year or the year after that.

    Sincerely,

    Kirsten Gillibrand
