    I strongly believe in free speech and do not want the government ever involved in what people can see or think!yes , its true hate and ignorance has been personified thruout the history of our culture. I was just as outraged about those horrible photos by mapplethorpe as any Decent person should be.Free speech also comes with great responsibility! what we say Matters!Its a given the middle east is less educated ,more radicalized ,poorer,and far more prone to tribalistic wars then most places,that being said We should be a better example the privately owned sites on the internet are in affect shirking there duties responsibly monitor postings that could cause backword people to freak out! Its like yelling fire in a crowded theatre irresponsible and beneath the principles we are SUPPOSED to stand for as the Greatest Power in the world.

  • Rob

    Did you take your “MED’S” Suikostinger?

  • RealityChick

    15 minutes of Matthews no mention of the Middle East, instead he is putting on some pseudo barber shop skit about Romney and Obama getting hair cuts together what would they say…pi$$ poor cover up from a washed up second rate has been tv “journalist” on the democrat payroll who like his idol in the White House doesn’t have an original thought in his head. I hope to Heaven some day this man will meet his match and some one will finally tell this blow-hard where to go. He makes me sick.

  • RealityChick

    CNN and Fox are covering the Mid-East story in their daily routine, interviewing, showing video, having debates with give and go and what is the talking head on MSNBC doing? Trashing Romney, talking about the union strike in Chicago anything but the mid-east…why? We all know why!! Because if you pretend it’s not there it will go away…just like the deficit…just like unemployment…just like Fast and Furious…just like illegal immigration…just like Israel and Iran..let’s just trash some one with some kahunas instead. They don’t want the truth on TV, they want you to believe reality TV is real..these are the people that think it’s ok for legislators in America’s largest city to ban a soft drink because it’s for our own good and make it part of the city charter. Same place a 75 year old woman was raped while walking in a park.

  • PoodlePower

    sweet!! Rachael Maddow beats Fox and Friends in the Key demo!

  • RealityChick

    Obama campaigns then shows up for his photo-op to bury the Ambassador after the apology to the people who murdered this man. If I was this man’s mother I would slap him in the face, point to Obama and his administration and tell everyone in his eulogy they are responsible for his death and God help anyone else that serves under this ego-maniac fool we have for a president whose only care in the world is how this will affect his ability to be re-elected.

  • PoodlePower

    haha, j/k. Just reflecting on a couple posts I’ve read in the past.

  • RealityChick

    We need to remember our ambassador when we vote in November. We need to remember Brian Terry. Obama is covering this up just like he did with Brian Terry’s murder. If they know where Osama Bin Laden was and took him out, you don’t think they didn’t know who, what where and how the embassy was attacked? They tell you it’s this stupid movie. Bull#$%&!! They knew this was planned and DID NOTHING ABOUT IT…HE WAS NEGOTIATING WITH THE EGYPTIAN GOVERNMENT OVER A BILLION DOLLARS!!! They played hardball and now it’s extortion, either pay up or we burn your embassies down. We’ll kill Americans in the process.

  • RealityChick

    The money we will be giving to these terrorists is blood money. Make no mistake, this has nothing to do with some antiquated video posted months ago with limited access by some obscure fool with a camera. We are being lied to by this administration and it’s so very, very wrong. People are now dead because Obama cannot face reality he is an amateur and his re-election will be toast if we find out how inept he is at his job.

  • mattfitz

    RealityChick u need some reality.I call total bs on your lies The president never apoligized No one did an aid made a statement in the Egyption embassy dissavowing that piece of trash,6 hrs before any protests.I never was told we now have some staffer in Egypt is now our president,You lie and repeat the lies ewnough they become the truth for the uninformed,Very Goebbel like,You must have studied Mein Kompf lol hate ti use that card but its true The right wing is now a party of unpatriotic dangerous liars the have no decency so it makes no sense to ask if they do!God Bless the USA the Armed forces in harms way and OUR commander in cheif.let us overcome this hate.

  • Letmethink

    Thanks poodle power—got a good laugh out of your post

  • DB

    For a second there I thought poodle power was a sockpuppet for Tony. Nice jab poodle power.

  • Bsotgnw
