    Good. I'm glad you're nice and calm, but there's just one more thing
    Could you please point out to me (for no bells does it ring)
    Anywhere I've ever said that I wish Palin harm?
    I don't use gun metaphors. I view them with alarm.

    I am free with my critiques (as you already know)
    But I've never threatened anyone on here, and so
    I don't think you're being fair equating her with me.
    If you do, I think we must agree to disagree.

    I thought your position was that inflammatory words could incite unstable individuals to violence. For the sake of arguement, one could easily infer that your poem was aimed squarely at Palin. If your theory is correct, some crazy fan of yours could interpret that as the signal to harm her. Only if your theory is correct, of course.

    ... And only if one assumed I have any fans, of course.

    I'm a fan, and I'm slightly less stable than Pat.

    The feeling is entirely mutual dear Pat.

    You guys are such flatterers, and now you've made me blush.
    Next time though, I promise, I won't be in such a rush
    To criticize. I'll take a breath and mother's good advice;
    Just to not say anything if it's not something nice.

    ('though I make no promises the breath will always work;
    That I won't say something that reveals me as a jerk.
    All that I can promise is it won't be my intent
    To anger anyone with any future thread content.)

    Three cheers for the Senator who serves the Rockies state.
    His idea for seating in the Congress? Pretty great.
    When Obama climbs the Hill to give his yearly speech
    Udall thinks bi-partisans should practice what they preach.

    Mix it up! Republicans sit with the Democrats.
    Cheek to jowl it's harder to behave themselves like brats.
    No more "reaching 'cross the aisle" but sitting side by side.
    That's a sight in which we all could take a lot of pride.

    No more one side leaping up while one sits on its hands.
    Colorado's Senator has shown he understands;
    Make them sit together and - who knows - perhaps they would
    Finally work together like good politicians should.

    The Congress - well, Republicans are trying to repeal
    The law that was designed to help our health care system heal.
    They won't be successful but they do intend to try
    Insisting that the law will cause a few more jobs to die.

    Bit by bit - dismantle it; that seems to be their plan.
    And, although they lack the votes, they're doing what they can
    To overturn the Health Care law. They promised that they would.
    Which leaves us with the question though of if, in fact, they should?

    No, the law's not perfect. Yes, it's full of compromise.
    But, to say it's killing jobs is just not true you guys.
    The C.B.O. reviewed the thing and, if we take their word,
    It lowers costs and cuts our debt. Cash hemorrhaging is cured.

    Some jobs go but others stay with more jobs gained than lost.
    Hope they keep the baby when the old bath water's tossed.
    Frankly, this vote strikes me as a case of sour grapes
    Politicians acting like a bunch of jackanapes.

    Well said Mrs.Smeej. I love the use of the word "jackanapes". My question for the right side is a simple one. I bet no one can answer it simply either. Why can't the Republicans offer some constructive criticism and do something to help make the health care plan even better than it is rather than undo everything that's been done? NO ONE has been able to answer that simple question yet and I haven't found anywhere to try to get an answer without my being called an UN-American, non-Christian libitard. Just asking.

    Terry B., that's it in one (I'm sorry, there's no prize.)
    That's the same objection I've been finding with these guys.
    Have they got a better plan ? 'cause they have not yet said.
    I'd sure like to see one though, before they move ahead.

    Picking at provisions that the people really need
    Offering protections from mismanagement and greed.
    I would feel much better if their answer weren't a shrug,
    If they told us their cure now - before they pull the plug.
