I think they weren't sure if he was ACTUALLY going to say a prayer or was just generally asking everyone to pray for our country.  I wasn't sure for a while which he meant either...I think that was the reason for the somewhat awkward applause there.

Yeah I'm sure that was it

Which one is the 4 year old girl in this scenario? That's the important question.

Autocorrect just made me an anti Semite. Welp. 

Mdrake uses a cart to carry his materials instead of carrying it like a man lol. Take that as you will.....:ninja:

You ever picked up a banker's box so full you can't fit another sheet of paper in it? **** is heavy. 

Also, holy noses is the most hilarious anti-Semitic thing I've ever seen. Who knew autocorrect was German.

So Antonio Babato Jr called Obama a Muslim and that he works for the bad guys in the middle east. BS like this will always keep our nation divided. He is ordering drone attacks on guys he supports? I just can't fathom something so silly. Anyone care to explain to me this? I'm open minded

I always thought it odd this whole Obama is a Muslim thing, it's like they are blatantly saying being a Muslim is bad.

Do some people NOT realize what and why America was founded? Religious freedom is one of the core principles. Obama can be a Muslim and still run for and be President and their are millions of multi generational natural born Muslims that are American citizens. Muslim does not equal Terrorist just like Christian does not equal Westboro Baptist Church member or KKK member.

Republican Senator...

Why is it so shocking these days when any elected Republican says anything reasonable? That being said it is nice to see, I REALLY wish the Republican party could actually be comprised of Financially conservative/ socially small government individuals that were not trying to push religion and would stay out of our personal lives and stop throwing money to the %1.

I look at things this way now. After Obama was re- elected, I did not so much as surrender as simply reach acceptance. I wrote on here a few years ago that the 2016 election would be important in signaling, I believe, which direction this country shall go for the rest of its existence. I still believe that, but I have reached a peace of sorts.

The bottom line is if the majority of people in this country want a more paternal, controlling, involved government, and want to drift toward a socialist, even authoritarian government, then it shall be. In that, I have to adapt or leave.

I am not angry. I feel for my children and their eventual cost in financial and personal freedom, but it seems the direction is set. I can see and feel that more and more people are wanting more government in their lives. I heard Whoopi Goldberg use those exact words.

More and more people believe the government can fix all that ails them when the government is horrible at everything. More and more people seem fine with letting the government dictate to us how we should think or feel about everything and everyone. More and more people seem fine to depend on the government to take care of their personal finances, safety, and responsibilities. More and more people seem willing to relinquish all control of their lives to the government. More and more people seem to want what Democrats are selling, and if that is the way it will be, it will be.

I must, and have, accepted that. Stressing over it will only kill me sooner, of course, that could be a blessing.:D

More and more people are looking to Whoopi Goldberg to take the nation's pulse.

Maybe not, but she does do a popular show, the View. I happened to catch her say this while waiting at the dentist office. I was already queasy just being at the dentist. This statement made my queasiness worse, but nevertheless, the show is popular. The audience wildly cheered after she said that. Obviously, if there were not a lot of people who believed this, the show would not be on, because I imagine she and the other host say such things quite often.

Evidently, a large portion of people do believe in what she and the other host say.

You're right. A large portion of people are the studio audience at the view.

I'm sure you're aware a large portion of people are watching said show and continue watching said show. I'm also sure you're aware the show would not be renewed if large portions of people did not continue to watch said show. Lastly, I'm sure you're aware large portions of people would not continue to watch said show or any other given show on a consistent basis if the wholeheartedly disagreed with the messages being presented. 

I'm not sure if you're being deliberately obtuse on this or.. well, I'm not sure if there is an alternative here.

A large portion could equal a THIRD of a percent of Americans. 

Thats a million viewers...
