It's simple enough, Bob, although I'm not sure why I am supposed to respond to YOU over a comment made to Jennifer, but that seems to be the way it is lately..
Why do teabaggers hate the 9/11 first responders?
"Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the GOP is lining up against the Firefighters and Police Officers who rushed into the Asbestos inferno of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
The profits of these companies are MORE IMPORTANT to today's GOP than the long term health maintenance of the men and women who put their lives on the line and those who died on September 11, 2001."
Now, obviously, this is a garbage article, by anyone's standards. I doubt if even you, Bob, would concur with these statements. They are basically a rant and rave for shock value and little else. Yet, they were copied, pasted and posted to...what? Prove some kind of point? In my view, anyone who happened to wander into the Alley and saw these comments being used would not believe the posts of such a person who would use them to be credible.
If I were to quote some right-wing hothead blog (and, yes, they are there, too) calling Democrats slimeball, disingenuous, uncaring, unfeeling people who hate anyone that stands in their way, I'm sure anyone reading it would feel the same way, that my using such a ridiculous rant would make my comments less than credible, also.
To resort to using such things is not favorable to the poster. You, Bob, asked to please not have the word Democrat used in places where democratic would fit because you found it personally offensive and yet you can't understand how someone calling Republicans a group who could care less about 9/11 responders as being a fine thing to do and not to be found offensive at all? Well, that's up to you, I suppose.
