    Yep.....some people in this country just do not know how to express their anger in a civilized way.

    Sad.

    Very much agreed.

    Sadly, the Republican party havn't been responding to these kinds of attacks very strong..
    One could say Mr. Steele almost seem to encourage these kinds of acts by setting up a site with a picture headlining the top with Nancy Pelosi on fire..He also went on FOX and told Pelosi and Dems to "Get ready for the firing line."

    Sarah is encouraging Republicans to "Reload" and used a picture with rifle scopes to show Democrats she is "Targeting" in 2010.

    Sad.

    True...

    And Pelosi marched through the protesting crowd with an oversized gavel...a victory march....rubbing it in their faces...an act that was not at all necessary.

    So you see.....both parties are satirring up the ranks for political expediency...

    And what do they want to happen?

    They want us to duke it out for them.

    Yep.....very sad indeed.

    How was it not necessary?

    The most Historic Legislation in years was about to pass..They had a right to celebrate by walking thru throngs of Tea Partiers gathered in Washington.

    I don't see how it was "rubbing it in their face."

    Health care needed to be addressed. But regardless of the contents of the bill, it seems to me that the right made it impossible for it NOT to pass. You can't tell people that you are going to make an issue their 'waterloo' and go after them with it regardless of whether they vote for it or not. At some point, the response has to be 'well, heck with 'em, i'd rather go down fighting than as a loser if i'm going to go down.

    And walking around with an oversized gavel isn't the same as a terroristic threat. youi know?

    Then you are way too partisan for me to communicate with.

    They could have just as easily did what they did the rest of the day to celebrate. They did not need to march with glee in front of those that were against the legislation....

    Unless....

    She stopped and spoke to them expressing an understanding of their concenrs but that their concerns will be alleviated once the plan goes into affect.

    But she didnt.

    It was nothing more than "egging them on"..

    Sad that I see your point that the GOP was egging them on but you dont see that as Pelosi and others egging them on.

    That is known as being extremely partisan on your part.

    This was not a discussion comparing an oversized gavel withg terrorist threats.

    They do not compare at all...and I would prefer you not putting words in my mouth.

    It was a discussion of the behavior of those in the public eye that are egging on people to act with anger.
