Palin would be an idiot to run. On the other hand, consider the community organizer with absolutely no experience other than giving speeches on how people should get free stuff, the same person that sat in church for 20 years with a radical hate monger and then claims he had no idea that Wright hates white people. That same person seemed to get elected.

Palin is a poor choice but she has much greater credentials than the current social democrat.

Let's hope all the data was encrypted. If not, BCBS should pay for credit monitoring for the life time of all the people involved. Typically, in situations like this, the company that made the mistake and jeopardizes your identity will pay for 90 days. Your SSN last a lifetime and they should pay for their blunder, not you.

The problem we have right now is that the Government absolutely interferes with religion. The Government should never tell people what to believe or how to practice it. By squashing Christianity, the Government is failing to separate church and state; the state is deciding which religions to honer and how people practice their religion.

If you are Muslim, your religion is much more likely to be "respected" by the liberals than if you are Christian. Liberals: LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE!! Just because you hate Christians doesn't mean that the government has to mandate it.

The point is that the people that hand out tickets don't check your political affiliation before doing so. To imply that there is something unfair in the process does not hold water.

By the way, I think Ann Coulter is "on the fringe" and is too far right for my own taste. However, I think she does serve a purpose of balancing out the far left, which absolutely gets the abundance of the press.

Also, as unfair as it may seem, whether someone paid Ann Coulter $25,000 to speak isn't going to reduce your tuition. If UTC paid Michael Moore a similar amount, I doubt you would complain. The fact is that the $25,000 that Ann allegedly got paid almost certainly would not offset your tuition one red dime. The source of the money was the Probasco Chair of Free Enterprise. If they had gotten a different speaker, your tuition would be the same.

"The reason Ms. Coulter received so few questions from "liberals" is because the audience inside the Roland Hayes Concert Hall was made up of her supporters. Very few students or faculty were issued tickets to this University-sponsored event. The swapping of venues and lack of publicity about how to acquire tickets led many on both sides to leave disappointed. And how you can bring up back-stabbing when Ms. Coulter could not mention an opponent without a personal attack astounds me. I guess you heard what you wanted to hear.

The University spent $25,000 for an hour and a half of Ann Coulter then didn't allow students to be in the same room. That would nearly cover the tuition for five students or the salary for an English lecturer, who could teach hundreds of students, for an entire year. As the University cuts back classes and staff, I hardly think this was a responsible use of funds. The peep show her lack of couth and short skirt provided was priceless, though. Personally, I want a refund."

Everyone had the same chance to get tickets whether you were a supporter or not. As for a refund; you are obviously liberal. The admission was free and yet you still want something in return.

I agree that Clay has nailed this one. However, the socialist on this page have failed to interpret the message correctly. The correct thing to observe is that the socialist party has used the large majority of their pencil and have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING THAT MAKES SENSE!!

I guess "non-torture" for this guy would be some left-wing network news person spouting his philosophy, which would just happen to line up with with his own.

Okay, Beck is too far out. But Clay is equally unfairly biased in his viewpoints.

"I do believe the plan we've been given is inadequate,"

The plan is simple: annex areas that don't want to be annexed so you can tax the residents against their will. I've never talked to anyone that felt that the benefits (trash collection) were worth the extra taxes.

To foil the annexation plan in time for a census, it seems like a law suit might be the only way.

I used to support Littlefield: I no longer do.

I'll enlighten you a little bit. People are upset about the government creating their own insurance option when they do not have any experience in doing so. They will pay for some of the expenses of learning how to run an insurance company out of premiums, but they will also pay for it out of subsidies supplied by taxpayers. They also won't be paying any taxes like other insurance providers yet they have the stupid notion that somehow this is fair competition. There is no way the private sector can compete with a government plan when the government plan does not have the same set of rules in terms of their own costs. When the funds run dry, (and they will), the government will have to raise taxes even further to pay for their misguided attempts to help people. Otherwise, they will have to ration care (which they will).

One can not understate the fact that the government's has never run any substantive program that stays any where close to the budget promised by politicians. The DEMS talk today about how great it will be with more and more government and unfortunately, people are drinking the cool-aide because they think that the majority of the expense will be paid by someone else. The fact is that raising taxes on business and "rich" people just trickles down so everyone will pay more.

This is the same mentality that caused the crash in the first place. Yes, both dems and reps assisted over the last 30 years or so, but the bottom line is that the problems are caused by the citizens wanting something for nothing and politicians passing misguided legislation so they can get reelected.

A private sector solution is by far the only sane one and the government option should be dumped.

The fact that people express their dissatisfaction with the government plan does not make them "idiots". Not only is this part of the democratic process, but it is the right thing to do.
