Interesting. ‘Our health care dollars’. Wouldn’t that be ‘their’ health care dollars? I mean they have paid into the system all their lives.

” ... apologists who can’t stand by our convictions”

That’s the Kos conviction that it’s ok to mock Down Syndrome children?

I’m sure Nelson will now be a featured regular on Letterman’s clusterfrak of a show. But at least all the horse sh*t will be in one stall then.

"Save what that idiot wrote so that we can send it to Sarah’s attorney."

I posted a link to the FR page with the text in my blog post on the Fourth, to MAKE SURE that even if they took down the original post, there would be access to the text her on FR.

Good insurance plan there.

Unrelated I am curious to know if KOSsacks and DUmmies peacefully co-exist or are they enemies even being on the same side of the battlefield?

"I already have her attorney’s phone number, I found it on his official site, but I can’t find an email address..if anyone has it here please post it. Oh I can imagine he already has a huge list going, but he can’t be aware of every single vile thing being said, so it’s up to us to find everything that is considered defaming and she can sue their asses."

This might be a good time, then, to re-institute that fine old art, letter-writing. And, the chances are very good that your paper letters will be read and noted in their logs. Put your information in a well-crafted letter and mail it to his office, and he will have it in black and white.

Definition-

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=kossacks

“The name “Kossack” references the Cossacks, an old spelling of the ethnic group now known as Kazaks.

When Russia absorbed Kazakstan into its empire, the Czar used Muslim Kazaks as a special cavalry due to their expert horsemanship and reputation for savage violence.

Cossacks often were the perpetrators of horrific pogroms against Jews in Russian territory during the Czarist era. “

Muslim?

So interesting ...... “cost effective”

Who will be determining “cost effective”?

What does the “cost uneffective” one get to say about its designation?

What recourse does the “cost uneffective” one have?

Who does the “Cost uneffective” one feel is not “cost effective”?

I personally do not think congress is “cost effective”. Afterall, they are hired to write legislation to make laws - yet they cannot find time to “read” written legislation.

I would think that would call for being determined not “cost effective” or merely utterly worthless and determined to be fired.

The diary was never meant to offend anyone or pit Huffington Post against Free Republic, because of course Huffington Post would win every time.

Win "every" time? Seems HuffPost got it's a** kicked here.

The reaction by the Libs is hilarious. A**es kick kicked, they try to do the Richard Nixon thing: declare victory and get out (or in their case run like scalded dogs).

Yep. The key word, apparently, opening the door for an inbumbent public servant to file suit, is malicious, i.e. way beyond acceptable heated political discourse.

Right, because we all know that all liberals are super uber smart... in their own mind anyway.

Not kissing up to them. But descending to their level of vulgarity is counterproductive and offensive. One can skewer another very effectively (I would argue more effectively) without the profanity.

I know what you mean .. I work at a facility for seniors with Alzheimer’s. What is this so-called “socialized” medicine going to mean for them ..??

“O” has already stated that one way to reduce costs is to “LIMIT CARE FOR THE ELDERLY”.

We must stop this insanity - NOW!!! We’ve got to find some people with guts who we can get elected in 2010.

The condition is also called “Down’s Syndrome” because it was an English doctor with the last name of “Down” who classified the condition.

Since Down’s Syndrome shows as a possessive (’s) meaning that the syndrome is attributed to Dr. Down.

So .. could we please give the man credit ..??

The Daily Kos pulled a diary entry entitled, Just don't accuse me of "going full retard, that was posted two hours ago. The article drew 55 comments before it was pulled.

An excerpt lives on via Google News:

Just don't accuse me of "going full retard"

Daily Kos - ‎2 hours ago‎

by Kwaidan Show of hands-- how many here thought the best fireworks display over this Fourth of July weekend was Sarah Palin's resignation "speech?" Me too. ...

Oh wait wait wait, Huff Po is official press now that they have access to the Presidential briefings, right???

Soooo, the Huff Po is responsible for articles published and these morons STILL don’t realize that she can sue them for made up rumours.

I will love watching their heads explode when they realize they can’t bash Sarah like they have for months on end now.

Oh yeah, and how much you want to bet Huff Po starts to crack down on the articles allowed on their site.

If they are going to be allowed to question the President as a press representative, then they are under the same responsibility as the others.

File this under: It ain't braggin' if it's true.

LOL! Reminds me of the old MAD magazine, "It Ain't Braggin' If It's True Department."

Sarah is a warrior, and in turn we need to have her back. I'm trying to do my part with my liberal friends who just can't help themselves with their idiotic Palin Derangement Syndrome. (Luckily, I have much more in common with my lib friends than politics and I love them, really. But PDS is PDS.)

Seriously, Kristinn, you are one of the true shining lights here on FR. I'd have gone completely nuts without FR. I salute your efforts in general and admire the heck out of you.

////quote//// The condition is also called “Down’s Syndrome” because it was an English doctor with the last name of “Down” who classified the condition.
////end quote////

At the Special Olympics I read a newsletter or other publication where they said that they actually preferred it to be called “Down Syndrome” now. I’m just telling you what they said.

I don’t understand, personally, why they said that. Also, I don’t understand why they made it sound almost like it would be _better_ to call it “Down Syndrome,” as if the possessive (traditional) phrase had almost been offensive. If my memory serves me correctly.

I think I prefer the traditional way.

There does appear to be a correlation between the Democrats and discrimination and ridicule against the defenseless. And it’s things such as this that brings the Obama Special Olympics joke right up to mind.
