    And comments like that come off as being just a little boorish and maybe even "McCarthyist".

    But Communism was a great problem within our government at the time, maybe it still is, so Senator McCarthy apparently did a national service in a time of need. But let's stick to facts, How many were falsely accused & how many were found to be more than "Fellow Travelers"?

    & did not the good people of WI elect Senator McCarthy, so they would be the perpetrators.
    It was actually Bobby Kennedy, not Teddy, who was most fascinated with McCarthy and Roy Cohn. I think it appealed to the bully streak in him -- a characteristic noted by many while Bobby served as Attorney General under his brother.

    McCrthy was one of the early masters of the sound byte. He combined that with the mind of a bully and a complete disregard of any form of ethics to destroy the lives of hundreds of people to further his own career. He thrived on his ability to manipulate fear, scaring even Eisenhower who understood how fundamentally evil McCarthy was. What ultimately destroyed McCarthy was very simple -- television. Day after day for weeks, the American public got to watch him first hand in action. And they saw a man who, in the words of Joseph Welch (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAur_I077NA), truly had no sense of decency at all. McCarthy never recovered. But his spiritual heirs, who are now much more sophisticated in their manipulation of the media, are thriving and well with handsomely paid gigs in radio and TV.

    Thank God there are none of those around anymore!!

    Some of these sound vaguely familiar.

    Just sayin!!

    Do you have examples of people that have been publicly and personally attacked by Rahm or Obama to destroy their reputations and lives?

    My religion does not promote violence in the name of ANY God. No religion should run military camps, but history has shown just about all major religions have done so.

    You act as though there is a group of Christians out there hunting down and killing Muslims or others. If you have not noticed it is the other way around.

    When I say group, don't give me a five member group. Give me a large organization that its goal is similar to the Radical Muslims. I know you will bring up some fringe group like the anti-abortionists but that is only a couple of idiots and not one major branch of Christianity sanctions these actions. The radical Muslims are well financed, well organized highly motivated and number in the hundreds of thousands.

    Over time I am getting a better picture of your world views. It is obvious to me that you are intolerant of Christians.

    The only radical Christians I have ever met are the ones that show up at my door asking if I know Jesus. Scary!

    I guess its OK to be a bigot if you are on the left.
    Good luck with that, code3....now he's been asked twice and STILL no answer.........typical OTA comments from Jeff.....

    Here and now. In the moment. Today.

    Give me a break Dave, bringing up the crusades again? Why just yesterday at my bible study we were talking about running off to Nevada to join the "Crusades for Christ-kill em all let God sort them out"- group. What a joke. Still waiting for the example of the radical extreme christain groups running around blowing up Air Arab planes, burning down mosques and such things that are happening in our life time-right now. I don't discount history, I respect it. Not use it as some lame brain argument to justify why Islamic extremists hate us. Pretty darn sure not a single one of the terrorist loony tunes was personally beat up by any crusaders. There are fringe elements in any religion, that use their 'belief' as a reason to do EVIL deeds. The biggest problem with Islam is that the fringe loonies are running the show. Period.

    Right now I'm dealing with a 25 year old Pakistani Muslim man stalking my 20 year old daughter. He is a frickin fruit cake and what an experience his 'beliefs' have been for us. While you may think that "trying to reason with people on this list" is like dealing with the islamic extremists-you don't have to worry about one of 'right wingers' on here blowing up your house.

    I think we should allow middle eastern folks to come and go freely back and forth to the US A few little restrictions would keep us totally safe and we can learn alot in the mean time


    First strip down every middle eastern person,and stack them up on top of each other necked at the back of the plane. Inject a GPS chip up their ass as a prerequisit.
    Have an US air marshall keep a gun pointed at them at all times,,, and no one moves not even to use the bathroom.

    I think this will make the friendly skys a safe place to be.
