It makes me angry and sick to think what that punk did in Arizona. What may be worse, is the Democrats jumping to a conclusion that this is the Republicans' fault. I'll tell you, no one deserves what happened that day — no matter who they are. That little girl was Dallas Green's granddaughter.

When is America going to wake up? The reason this may have happened is because the Democrats have run things for more than 50 years. We said the pledge when I went to school — not today; school prayer — no way; put a bible in the library — ugh ugh; pass out condoms — OK; girls under 18 can get abortions without parent notification — OK; and teach about two mothers or two fathers — heck yeah. Their social engineering has come home to roost for them.

What is it they don't like about God? What is it they fear about Sarah Palin? Is it because she is smart, pretty and has ideas? Tell me one idea the Democrats have that actually worked, made your life better and did not cost anything?

Come to America illegally — prize; go to the hospital — prize; go grocery shopping with WIC coupons — prize. Now come to America legally, land of the free and home of the brave; that did not mean illegals get stuff for free.

When will you wake up and see that the kind of Democrat that John Kennedy was is not the kind they are today? He gave us the last tax cut from a Democrat and stood up to the Soviet Union on the brink of a nuclear war. Can you imagine Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton or Obama having been president then? Unfortunately Kennedy was killed and LBJ started the social engineering that raised its ugly head in Arizona.

Thank all the liberal teachers and professors who took God and discipline out of the conversation, for political gain, and to divide and conquer.

    Mr. Baumbach , I agree - in regards to Mr. Kinderman. He would not express his opinion if he did not care.

    Mr Kinderman stated…I’ve been very quiet in recent months because of personal health challenges that have tested my resolve well beyond anything I’ve ever had to deal with in the past. But I have at least been heartened by some here who have continued to step up and challenge the forces of evil that would want nothing but to destroy this great nation of ours…

    I understand that Mr Kinderman experienced serious medical conditions 4 years ago and recovered. If current condition is a challenge beyond anything prior, it obviously must be a very difficult time for him. I mention this not to discuss his medical condition, but his character. My thought is that anyone that would take their time to participate in a blog like this, considering his circumstance, must be a dedicated concerned person who thinks enough of the welfare of others to say something that he feels may make a difference.
    Agree or disagree with his positions… but no one should ever doubt his intent or purpose in what he says in general. In my opinion, if more people were as selfless and had the best interests of others at heart instead of selfish concerns, we would all be better off… my hats off to you Mr. Kinderman.

    Ahhh, C'mon You guys, keep your heads up -- it ain't that bad. Yes Mr. "Transformation" may very well be re-elected, but he will probably lose the Senate in the process. The blood bath -- oops, the conflict -- will gain intensity as the congress and Obama battle over Executive powers. Ultimately is all headed for the Supreme court; and that I believe will be Obama's big bump in the road of his collectivist dream. Jerome, your pep rally analysis was spot on.

    -Yep,
    And while we search for reasons to not call a spade a spade this in turn energizes the Islamic Radicals. As long as we fail to recognize that the words of Mohammad
    are their motivating factor then why on Earth should we expect them to hold themselves accountable. Our weaknesses are thus used against us.

    Someone interestingly noted that we "are no longer fighting terrorists ... we are fighting ourselves." I submit that we've never begun fighting those who openly declared war on us on September 11, 2001.

    Instead of adopting the same attitude as the United States did on December 8, 1941, we've become more concerned about how to make those who hate us change their minds about who and what we are. The result has been an enemy that is absolutely thrilled that we've actually declared war upon ourselves - all in the name of being fair, nice, accommodating and being politically correct.

    The few weeks of unity that was shared after 9/11 has been replaced by infighting to such an extent that we truly believe the only way to survive is to "fundamentally change" the United States of America. The majority of these changes have not been good; if they had been, we would not be in the condition we find ourselves today.

    What was supposed to be a "memorial" service in Arizona resulted in a pep rally to do nothing much more than kick off the presidential election of 2012. "Memorial" denotes a respectful and serious gathering wherein the participants remember those who have died. Yet, from where I sat listening to the hooting and hollering, t-shirts and chants, there should have been at least one person there that could have brought order to the festivities - but unlike the Fort Hood massacre where President Obama called for careful consideration before rendering judgment, he has been absolutely silent on that point - and I am not at all surprised.

    If anyone doesn't believe the past week has been nothing more than political posturing - especially by those on the left side of the aisle - then we're in very big trouble indeed. The next two years will be a protracted campaign the likes of which we've never witnessed before. Unfortunately, I doubt that the American people will have the intestinal fortitude to replace Mr. Obama and he will win for himself four more years in the White House. The result of that will be the finish of his transformation that will make the past two years pale in comparison.

    I’ve been very quiet in recent months because of personal health challenges that have tested my resolve well beyond anything I’ve ever had to deal with in the past. But I have at least been heartened by some here who have continued to step up and challenge the forces of evil that would want nothing but to destroy this great nation of ours. I will continue to pray for them as well as our leaders and the President that they will begin to do what is right for America – not just their own warped ideas of what they think we should be. May God continue to bless the United States of America. We need Him now more than ever – and we need Him to specifically grant our leaders the wisdom to bring us back from the brink of destruction. The next two years may very well be our last chance.

    I just knew them pesky Democrats were the root of all the ills that have beset this world. Darn them! Well, it won't matter anyhow. The world's ending in a few months right? Okay, cue the Looney Toons music....

    I had to read this 3 times and pinch myself twice just to make sure I wasn't dreaming...

    Mr. Vetica asserts that the supposed reluctance to pledge allegiance(non-existent, to my knowledge, every public school recites it once a day), the absence of a bible in the library(again, non-existent concern, bibles are easily located in student and public libraries, I was fortunate to stumble on a copy of the apocrypha along with at least 3 translations of the bible), the distribution of condoms, the right of teenage girls to control their own bodies, and same-sex marriage advocacy is responsible for the recent tragedy in Tucson? Seriously?

    I wonder if Joanne is even aware that the once model city Detroit, MI was the labratory
    for social engineering? How's that city doing now, Joanne? You want to move there?

    -And the sixties ended 50 years ago but the risidual affects still linger. Even though the fities and the sixties are a mere ten years apart, the progressive movement of the sixties
    made sure it would seem like 100 years. Heaven forbid we harken back to the traditional nuclear family of the fities. We wouldn't want those social engineers of the sixites to think we are opposed to free love and single parenthood. Joanne has yet again revealed how her belief that if we all can just get along the "Utopia" on this Earth,
    she believes is attainable, is not too far-fetched.

    Dennis, I started to read your letter and agreed that no one should be blamed for the
    Arizona shooting but the shooter himself. Then you go on to blame Democratics. How dare the Democrats blame because they are to blame? Sad letter.

    I am not a Democrat, but all violent political talk should stop. We are no longer fighting terrorists ... we are fighting ourselves.

    Dennis...the fifties ended 60 years ago. The US has entered the 21st century and there is no going back. I'm sorry that you are no longer able to live in your La-La land of ignorance of the world around you....perhaps therapy might help...obviously that Latte was of no use.

    BTW - the Pledge of Allegiance is still recited daily in Lodi schools...and it includes "one nation under god."

    We can always count on you for a good one Dennis. I would only add that the "progressives" have always had big ideas; but their downfall is realized once they begin to demand payment for their failures -- It is the striking difference that is easily seen by anyone who has actually had to pay for failure. Unfortunately, the people do not demand higher standards from their elected leaders until the "standard" has fallen into the abyss. Hey! stay strong Dennis, we're climbing back out...
