  •  Thank you. (none)
    It's sad that many human beings have this sickness as a part of their nature...always feeling better about themselves (and their situations) when someone else is suffering.  Why can't more people be happy when others are strong and doing well??  

    I don't understand people sometimes...but it makes one seek out others who do care about others.  Not everyone on this planet has a serious lack of love, empathy, and compassion, thank God!  But extremely good-hearted people are hard to find...and when you find them, you try to hold on to them and give generously to cultivating those friendships and relationships, because we were made to reach out to one another, and to empower one another.

    •  In the New Testament, (4.00)
      Christ--and maybe he was God, maybe he was just a great teacher--said, "Love your neighbor as yourself."

      These idiots in Texas, by passing this legislation, are not doing that.  ...even though they think of themselves as such great Christians...I say, "Bullshit!!"

      Listen, you pro-Bush religious fundamentalists...

      LIFE DOES NOT END AT BIRTH!!

      STOP LEGISLATING AS IF IT DOES!!

      •  Pro-Life (4.00)
        does not mean neglecting the education, medical care, and nourishment of our children.

        Pro-Life does not mean neglecting the environment.

        Pro-Life does not mean sending our own precious troops to war in Iraq based on lies.

        Pro-Life does not mean making a half-assed effort to save American lives at the beginning of the Katrina disaster.

        Pro-Life does not mean killing 100,000 innocent Iraqi civilians.

        So stop trying to represent yourselves as Pro-Life...Republican Liars.

          •  True. (none)
            But I'm trying to awaken the anger in the progressive and moderate Republicans, and also the pro-choice Dems and independents that may not have thought much about GOP rhetoric versus reality.  If they do not agree with the Bush Administration on many of the issues that I mentioned, then we ought to welcome them over to our side.

            There's little we can do about the Pro-Life Dems.  I'm certainly not going to treat them in the way that the GOP treats RINOs, liberal and moderate Republicans, and centrists.

            The GOP tries to crush anything that remotely approaches dissension within its ranks.  Although that may result in a unified message, it also results in some switches in party (see Jim Jeffords, for example) and more pent-up anger (e.g. see dKos diary on recent townhall meeting of Republican congressman Lamar Smith in Austin, TX).
