When someone with a knife can take out 15 people in a dark movie theatre, or take our 26 innocents in an elementary school (in less than 5 minutes), then you morons might have a point. Otherwise, take note of the old saying: Better to stay quiet and let others think you are stupid, than to speak (or in this case, write..), and prove it.

Can't wait to see how those Republicans bought and paid for by the NRA react to this. This has been a very uncomfortable week for them. They seem to have slithered under their collective rocks. Guess their "guns at any cost" mentality with the murder of 26 innocents, including 20 children, was just a bit too much for even them to defend.

1. Abortion is a medical procedure. It is legal.2. Please find me where in the Bible (chapter/verse) that states contraception is against God's laws. 3. There is no militant agenda. You sound really paranoid. Live and let live buddy.4. It's called separation of church and state.

Oh please. Shame on the NRA while you're at it. And it's Mayor Bloomberg. I pray for the families and pray for some sanity to be restored in our country. Next week it might be YOUR or MY kid.... (By the way, those of you who are, like me, saddened and angered by this latest tragedy...take it upon ourselves to let our president, our senators, and our congressmen and women know how we feel about guns being in the hands of the criminally insane. We need to act NOW to DEMAND responsible gun ownership and the closing of loopholes, such as being able to purchase guns at gun shows, without background checks.) This morning, I don't know if more sad or more angry. What will it take for America to wake up? One hundred dead? One thousand?

Hey NRA...how do you like your country now?

To Mark Munroe: If you want to know what's wrong with the Republican Party, and why your party got so badly bruised during this election, please read the letter from Joseph K. Waltenbaugh above. It's the hate-filled, small-minded, vitriolic spew from nut jobs such as these that turn away the decent, hard-working middle class. If your party doesn't welcome pro-choice women, gays, and minorities, then I think you better get used to losing elections. By the way, Mr. Waltenbaugh's should read Bertram's recent editorial "Cry of the Angry White Man." He just might recognize himself!!!

I agree wholeheartedly GoPens. I believe all churches should be taxed.

Romney might have had a chance if he was "allowed" to be the moderate I think he really is. Instead, the Tea Party crazies pushed him too far to the right. Romney couldn't be all things to all people...the liberal who once believed in pro-choice and Romneycare (the forerunner to Obamacare), the moderate, or the far right neocon. In addition, he made a series of huge gaffes...the 47% tape, binders full of women, his disastrous foreign trip this summer. He never quite got his act together. As long as the GOP continues the hard right turn they've taken for the past 20 years, I think they will continue to lose elections. You can't keep saying you want smaller government, but you want to government rules that eliminate abortion and forbid gay marriage. You can't keep pretending that global warning/climate change doesn't exist. You can't keep ignoring the fact that women earn 70 cents on the dollar...or that affordable health care really is a right of all Americans. See, you think liberals want everything for free, and you're wrong about that. Liberals don't want handouts, but equal opportunity and a fair shot at the American dream. The bottom line? This was a huge victory for the 99%...and an epic fail for the GOP. And if you don't move toward the center, you'll lose the House in 2014 and the presidency again in 2016. It's not your father's Republican party anymore, fellas.

Why Obama won Ohio: 1. Women who are tired of being told what to do by old, white, straight men. The comment about "binders full of women" was both offensive and insulting. 2. Backlash (still) from SB5. 3. Auto bailout. Anybody wanna relive those days after the steel mills closed in the late 70's?
