Talking about voting on this 'health'care debacle, Sen. Reid compared it to ending slavery. How completely offensive can it get?
It's highly offfensive considering slavery is still happening in America. It's just not NAMED slavery anymore.
And, if I have to explain what I mean, then obviously you have blinders on and cannot see it yourself.
Thank you for playing.
It doesn't offend anyone who matters so why bring it up?
Yeah, even I didn't understand what he meant by the comment.
Yep, Ron held a vote. It was decided that until Sarah Palin joins Hubpages he decides who matters. The vote was unanimous by the way.
Wait, so it would offend the President, who happens to be black, and by default anyone who shares the same ethnicity as the President, because ultimately they, in your eyes, do not matter? Hopefully I'm misinterpreting your response.
Tksensei, I don't personally find that particular comment offensive, but admittedly so, I have not heard the comment in its proper context.
Yeah, I would say you are misinterpreting my response! I personally do not care what offends Obama or anyone who shares his ethnicity or my ethnicity! That was a response that Ron would understand and not meant for anyone else!
I find it more ironic than offensive. A politician attempting to carve out an electorate by creating dependency through government entitlement. All in the name of making people indipendent.....AMAZING!
Ried is part of this movement to strip us of our rights in ALL aspects. Ried must be defeated in his re-election, time to push back now
Reid's comment is offensive to internet trolls. They don't matter, so I don't care if they're offended.
I'm glad you wear a helmet it'll keep you from hurting yourself.
Don't bother, I think he prefers to drop in random comments without explanation or meaning. Of course, it does spur conversation so it's a good approach.

Does anyone know Bob Ross' (painter) ethnicity?I have looked all over the net and other places for his ethnicity. No one seems to know what it is. He sported the cool Afro during his show on PBS. It is rumored that he was either part African American or Jewish. My wife brought that question up...

"Mr. President, should they or should they not build a mosque steps away from where radical Islamists killed 3000 people?" There are two places where the question is factually wrong. What the cultural center will have is a swimming pool, gymnasium, I think a theatre and some prayer rooms....

I am so puzzled by a lot of people who call themselves Christians and yet only to find that they don`t even understand a single word in the bible. always misinterpreting the message to suit their situations or circumstance. I`ve also noted that the people that read the book of life most are the...

This is in regard to the recent controversial political statement made by black NFL athletes, their kneeling during the national anthem instead of standing with hands over their hearts. This was a protest of police shootings of unarmed black men. I am sure that all you hubbers are in the know. This...
