LETTER: Left embarrassing, too

I don't think I can hold a recent letter writer too responsible, especially if he listens to the mainstream media and the leaders of the Democrats. They both have certainly implied, if not specifically stated, that all the violence and threats have come from Republicans.

I don't think I can hold a recent letter writer too responsible, especially if he listens to the mainstream media and the leaders of the Democrats. They both have certainly implied, if not specifically stated, that all the violence and threats have come from Republicans. But isn't it ironic that, based on the information I have been able to find, there have not been arrests for many of these incidents so we don't know what side they are on. I guess we just assume they are Republicans because that is what much of the press and the Dems' leaders tell us.

It's funny, though, because what I have been able to find is that it was a Democrat who threw a brick through the window of the Democratic Headquarters in Denver. It was a liberal who bit off the finger of another during an argument over health care. The Hummers that were burned because they get poor gas mileage was done by leftists. Then there was Amy Bishop, an Obama fan, who shot her co-workers and it was SEIU thugs who beat down opponents at a health care rally. Recently, Ann Coulter was threatened by angry liberals in Canada. No doubt, there are Republicans making threats and taking other unacceptable actions, but only the GOP is embarrassing?

Only one thing more: Whom should I direct my "Shame on you" towards? The letter writer for believing a biased, mainstream media? That same media? Democrat leaders for their part in this? There's plenty to go around -- shame on all of you. Let's make an attempt to get the story correct next time.

Hey Bob , couldnt agree with you more , to be honest with yea , I am beginning to wander if the ones that are doing the things that are being place in the paper , I would think that maybe they dont even know what they are ,,

I live in Sandusky and think its a shame that all this is going on in my hometown , that i used to be proud to call home ,now i am not sure how I feel about it , if its not the city goverment taken police and fire fighters of the streets , it gangs that are shooting up the streets and its a shame that the police can not catch up with them before someone ends up in the hospital

Hopifully some rest will come soon , so people can free safe again , and not have to be worried about a shot coming through their windows in the middle of the night .But then I guess that will time will tell .

I think that we should just do away with the different parties and ask for people to run that will try and get the things done that need to be done .No good can come when you have two different parties that cant agree on anything , cause one party pushes the other to the side and can make laws to suit them.

And yes I said push , cause look at the way the country as come too , you have a heath care bill that is law , and that no one can make sense of unless you have a degree in law .The guy that hasnt got a good education cant make heads or tails out it , and from what I can understand , you know if that bill would have been place on  the ballets like Oboama was to get elected , I would bet it would have been voted down ,not because it may or may not be a good bill , but because we dont understand the legal talk that comes with it .
