NOTE TO VIEWERS: I rarely receive negative mail, maybe 1 out of 100-150 positive emails. Curiously, since Ann Coulter recently spewed her poisonous words, I have received over 50. The conservative base has been let loose. It's going to be a long hot summer.

joke.I vote,strickly morals,pro life at the top of the list,traditional family

confess that Jesus Christ is lord!! & for the condemned there will be wailing &
knashing of teeth in the eternal fire of damnation!!! REPENT! REPENT! The time
I'm "not dead yet as far as [you] know" ?
You better hope and pray nothing happens to me because you will be the first person the police will contact. This is why I am posting your disturbed e-mail.
I Googled your e-mail address and found your website www.safehavenministries.com . You stated you work for the US Postal Service.
Roosevelt was legally elected four times. He didn't try to rewrite any laws as you stated. After his death the 22nd amendment to the US Constitution was passed limiting a president to two terms. Gee, I learned that in 6th grade.
Just where is the "Christ" in your Christianity? My church taught me that Jesus is the Prince of Peace, Love and Hope.
I imagine this is the cartoon you are referring to -- in fact, it's one of the more popular cartoons on my site, among my Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Atheist and Agnostic viewers. I am glad to rerun it.
"I must ask my colleagues on the other side of the aisle: Does Ann Coulter speak for you when she suggests poisoning Supreme Court Justices or slanders the 9/11 … widows? If not, speak now. Your silence allows her to be your spokesman." -- Rep. Rahm Emmanuel, D-Ill.,
Cher has teamed up with Dr. Bob Meaders, founder and president of Operation-Helmet.org to help shed light on current problems with the existing helmets being used by members of the U.S. Military, it was announced today. The Oscar winning actress and singer has committed to working with Operation Helmet to upgrade existing helmets to protect troops against blasts and impact concussions that they face in bomb blasts and motor vehicle accidents.

Subject: KOS blog convention
Why weren't you there? Or Bartcop? I was so looking forward to watching you and hearing what you had to say. I assumed you would be there. You've been online blogging for what? 5-6 years? Do you know your google rating is higher than Jay Lenos website for Chrissakes? I wasn't very impressed with the convention panel talks. Most seemed very dry and boring compared to their online posts. You sure woulda brought some sparkle by just showing your toons!!!! I loved hearing Joe Wilson and Barbara Boxer speak there. Harry Reed too... And KOS was kool!
Hi Hank. I wasn't invited. I'm just a little fish in the big blogpond. But thank you so much for your kind words and caring.
I watched some of the convention on C-Span and wasn't familiar with most of the blog sites.
I liked Kos, too.
No, I didn't know my Google rating was higher than Jay Leno's. I checked the Alexa ranking of Leno and his site is ranked at 710, mine is at 175,847. I don't know why Google has me ranked higher. Gee, I wish I made 1% of the money Leno makes -- I'd be one happy puppy. I'm just a single woman making a living with my website. I am at the poverty level according to the IRS but each year my online support steadily increases. Thankfully my living expenses are quite low and I don't eat much.
"Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld said al-Zarqawi was 'mean, vicious, and hateful.' So you know what that means? Ann Coulter could be next." --Jay Leno

Republicans Ruining the Internet
Prominent Democrats predicted
the vote would come to represent a turning point in the history of the
Internet. In a 269-152 vote that fell largely along party lines, the House
Republican leadership mustered enough votes to reject a Democrat-backed
amendment that would have enshrined stiff net neutrality regulations into
federal law and prevented broadband providers
from treating some Internet sites differently from others.

"I don't know Judith Miller. I understand that she's easier to defend if you don't know her. But I'm still upset by the fact that a reporter was put in prison and left to languish there. I'd feel the same way about Robert Novak and Ann Coulter -- although I admit thatthe thought of Ann Coulter in chains is attractive!"

The only words he ever says in public are, "This is the official two-minute warning for the press. Two minutes." He delivers them with effortless authority to vast crowds after placing President George W. Bush's note cards or speech text on the podium just so.
