DID I MISS SOMETHING

Brentub over at Am I too old for this???? had some goodies this morning including a report that one of the senators from Pennsylvania, Rick Santorum, has compared the Democrats to Nazis.

Did I miss something in the last couple of weeks while I was knitting, working, and getting ready to finish my dental work. Gee, I must have missed the organizing of our version of the Storm Troopers, SS, Gestapo, Kristalnacht, the Roehm Purge, that sort of thing.

Last time I checked the only administration that is holding prisoners in open ended detention is not being run by the Democratic party.

To answer her question at the end. No, I don't think that the folks that threw the tea into the harbor had this in mind when they did it. But, they were just one group. When the frontier finally ended in the middle of the last century we ran out of places to run to when we can't get along with other folks. After two centuries, we finally have to start learning to get along. I hope it doesn't take another two hundred years to do it. I'm not sure we'll last that long.

SO funny that any Republican has the nerve to point that "nazi" finger at the Democratic party, with all the crap the Republicans have caused and are trying to pull.  Tsk!  Lisa  :-]

The way I understand Rick Santorum is one of what seems like many of the extreme Republicans and so long as the extremists on both sides continue to capture the headlines it will continue to feel like there is a great divide in this country. :-) ---Robbie

What is going on absolutely terrifies me. Are the people blind?

I feel also terrified with what is happening in out US Senate. What will our history show the future generations? That the when the Republican's are in the majority, they can run over our beloved Constitution, fair and just debates for the minority party on any issue during US Senate hearings and big-headed, ego-maniacs can attempt (and succeed) to turn the United States into a "communist" type country.

I detest what is happening along with so many great Democratic leaders and some are Republican. I detest that three Judicial nominees that are NOT appropriate candidates are going to get an up-or-down vote today and will more than likely get seated on the Court of Appeals.

Great, great entry. Thank you.
