    Mr. Atkinson — there has always been a two-tiered Anglican Church. The only thing is that the African segment has hijacked it and forced this split with their “no hostage taking” attitude and threats. Your weak leadership exacerbated it and unfortunately you aligned yourself with them. You are now crying over milk that you spilled.

  2. Paul R says

    Virginia Foxx is merely repeating a claim being emailed to the elderly by Donald Wildom/American Family Association that contains an interview with former Senator Fred Thompson (because two lunatics are better than one!). The email says, “Obama’s plan would deny medical care for the elderly.” (I couldn’t bring myself to listen to the interview.)

    I know this because my sweet but easily frightened mother forwarded me the email Monday asking if it were true. (Among my mother’s friends email is a bit dangerous, because it leads them to believe in all sorts of urban myths and scare tactics. One widow was devastated when my Mom had to tell her that Bill Gates would not, in fact, be sending her $500,000.)

    Scaring the elderly with lies: what a proud move by Republicans.

    Paul C. and James Tony please provide me a mailing address so I can send you both gift cards good for unlimited tanning at the tanning bed nearest you.

    I think you both deserve them….

  4. David C says

    “Scaring the elderly with lies: what a proud move by Republicans.”

    Really, Paul R?

    Have you forgotten how the Dems claimed the new majority GOP wanted to throw seniors into the streets back in 1990s?

    But since the Democrats plan to base health care on cost per life expectancy, how is Thompson’s claim false?

  5. Paul R says

    Hmm, David C, let me think. Thompson also said that all seniors were going to have to go to the government when they reach 75 and have a talk about whether they should undergo euthanasia. And this is someone you believe? That kind of talk is far worse than anything the Dems said in the 90s.

    And you have a copy of the complete draft bill in front of you, and know exactly what final form it will take in several months?

    I don’t trust people who lie. And we would have had health care reform a lot cheaper if the GOP hadn’t dismissed Hillary Clinton and her team 16 years ago. At that time health care accounted for 10% of GDP; now it’s more than 16%. So you’ll forgive me if I don’t care much about claims by politicians serving as insurance company apologists and pharmaceutical company whores. Thompson is a despicable, stupid man, and works hand in glove with the American Family Association. Know anything about them? If you’re gay and you don’t, then you should be ashamed.

    For the record, I find it regrettable that Baucus is leading the Dems fight for health care reform too. He’s a dolt, and also beholden to industry contributions.
