      Please where is the source of your misinformation? Was there a prior incident? Or, are you just another brainwashed teapitty moron who believes any wild tale? The last option sounds more feasible.

      perhaps you are confusing her statement about finally be proud of America...since Barack was elected president... you must understand she grew up in the south side of chicago...not exactly the epicenter of true American pride and morality, as was the environment barack grew up in...

    To those who love truth, we offer a different understanding. Our understanding is not based on media reports but on the Word of God. People are outraged when they hear our message even though this country is founded on freedom of religion and freedom of speech. Why do people get angry when somebody presents their belief?

      Do you label any individual with whom you disagree a marxist?

        @ Kat
        Taking into consideration that for today Jerky is not discussing booty and eyebrows. He is just a trailer trash Nazi who hasn't honed worthwhile skills past name calling.

    jerry r....i guess the r stands for redneck??? i bet you dont think labor day or 4th of july is a marxist day since im sure you celebrate it. Idiots are in every race and you sure are shining bright with your racist a** today. you probably live in a dump and are quick to point the finger at anyone who doesnt think the way you do. Back asswards!

      You my little minded friend would be surprised if you knew who I am. I'm not a republican or democrat, or ever took a dime from anyone I didn't earn. I have close friends who are of many races and sexual orientation. I have supported, educated, and raised a family. I live in a fine home that is paid for and spend vacations on my yacht. I have traveled the world, on my own dime. I'm a combat decorated veteran. I grew up poor and I worked hard and I paid for my own education. I've earned the right to say my piece...so get over it!
