I don't understand.

This, too. Are you two agreeing with each other or disagreeing?

Want to compare agendas? What are the Koch brothers trying to accomplish with their bought politicians?

The same stuff Soros is if you take a few steps back. Oh wow, billionaires using their influence on government? Shocking!

These people have disproportionate influence due to their wealth and they use it to further their own ends. That's really the end of the discussion, even if one guy cheers for your team too.

You can't possibly really think this way.

Soros funding every liberal pet cause or group is no different than the stuff the Koch brothers do.

No. Different.

It's billionaire with an agenda versus billionaire with an agenda. You're just too wrapped up with partisan cheerleading to acknowledge it.

HE'S LYING!

NO, HE'S LYING!

NO, HE'S LYING!

blah blah blah, watch them all steal your money while you're bitching about gay marriage

Probably not constructional given recent SCOTUS decision, would likely require an amendment.
I agree with this.

Soros wants to control every public utility, eliminate unions, eliminate pollution control, abolish the minimum wage, and drive the middle class further into poverty?

Who knew?

No you are WRONG. The stupid ones are the public who buys into this garbage that ALL the congressman are handing us--regardless of party.
Instead of getting the job done, they are busy looking into their own personal interest, welfare, and money.-----------they are ALL the same breed .

‘Fox & Friends’ Debates Whether Ranting House Stenographer Was Victim of Religious Persecution



The Wrap
By Brent Lang 7 hours ago

Was the stenographer who started ranting about God during a vote to end the government shutdown on Wednesday the victim of religious persecution?

That was the conclusion of viewers who wrote into “Fox & Friends” on Thursday morning to express their outrage that Dianne Reidy, a reporter with the Office of the Clerk, was pulled away from a microphone by Capitol Hill security personnel after shouting “Do not be deceived. God shall not be mocked. A House divided cannot stand.”

She went on to add that the Constitution was written by Freemasons and atheists before praising Jesus Christ and God.

To the untrained eye, Reidy’s outburst had all the markings of a mental breakdown, but a minister wrote the Fox News morning program arguing that the woman was simply sharing a communique from on high.

“It was not a mental episode,” host Steve Doocy read from the email. “What she was doing was known as an exercise of the gifts of the spirit where she was. She had brought a warning and a message from God.”


It wasn’t just the Lord’s outrage over Obamacare that got “Fox & Friends” viewers riled up, they were upset that guards seized Reidy for sharing her beliefs.

“Amazingly, this religious and obviously a sweet lady gets fed up and speaks her mind, something we all have tried to do,” Doocy read from a second email. “She brings up our dear Lord and she gets a mental evaluation? I think it should be the other way around. And then this person goes on to list the people who should be checked out.”

Doocy’s co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck expressed some sympathy for this interpretation, saying, “We’ve had incidents in the past, which certainly required some security measures to be taken and we’re thankful for those. But who knows? Maybe she just saw something that didn’t seem right and mounting frustrations and tensions brought it out of her.”

But Brian Kilmeade, the other member of the coffee chat club, wasn’t having it.

“She got behind the speaker’s chair and started screaming in the middle of a vote. You do have to pull her away,” he said.

I think it was more of a statement and less of a question.
