Why does everyone just dismiss Foxnews without any semblance objectivity? It would be like every person you come into contact with assume you are a knuckle dragging neanderthal without even giving you the opportunity to prove it.
Ted Kennedy is dead.

youngandfree, I think he was being sarcastic. I know I was.
08-26-2009, 12:44 PM
He was a murderer that had a lot of money and the rules didnt apply to him. He should have died in a prison.

Cool no problem then. Then my comment was just directed at those that do feel that way. All media is biased one way or the other. I think you have to look at both sides and use a brain cell or two to determine what is at the bottom of the story.

They should build a memorial on Chappaquid**** Island or rename it after him.

It looks like the Dem's might be trying to capitalize on his death to pass their health care reform.

The problem will not be the Dems. This is to be expected of them. The problem will be the blue dogs and the Republicans who let themselves be emasculated by his death for some ridiculous ****ing reason.

Its the Golden rule those with the gold make the rules at the very least he was guilty of manslaughter but there whole family is used to throwing there weight around 1 of the kennedy daughters who used to disagree with the father was severly lobotomized by the family and died a drooling idiot in an institution , hidden away from the public.
The whole kennedy family are frauds and the dregs of society

**** if I know but it makes for good reading at 6am.
I don't believe he accomplished much more than being a gifted speaker and even that wasn't a huge thing he had it was just wrapped around who he and his family were.That and the fact that very few accomplish a small measure of what Ted Kennedy did, even with all of his shortcomings.

Secondly unless the person u are responding to has a position in government office it doesnt matter what he has or has not done its not his job to do it, thats why there are elected officials, to do the jobs that the people cannot do for whatever reason. This is what they get paid to do, and yes im sure they donate and do plenty of out of pocket work (especially during terms where they need to be voted in, not saying just the kennedys but every politician does it for posterity thats how it works).
I personally dislike they way ted kennedy ran his office. I am entitled to my position/opinion because he is a public government official, and just because im not out feeding the homeless (today, actually on sundays i do), doesnt mean my or any other persons opinion is less important. And further more if thats truly how u feel then we should probably do away with voting for presidents right? It seems to me with that position you would have a bunch of rich, politician like individuals to decide the fate of the country which if u believe in thats great but i rather see voting polls goto the people and the general public make their decision.

We could say that about a lot of people but I was not comparing him to anyone else. You're barking up the wrong tree if you're trying to turn this into a D V R debate or something similar. As a voting member of the US I have the right to judge the actions or inactions of those in a public office. His ONLY job is to give back to the people he represents while in office. To act like he did something above and beyond is far from honest. He enjoyed may fruits from what he did as well. Do not act as if he's done this completely out of charity with no return.

As Jayhawkk said, Kennedy was beholden to his constituents in MA, and the majority of those folks preferred to keep him as their Senate representative time and time again. There were 21,000 people, in 3.5 hour lines stretched around the block to view his casket...sounds like the people of MA were grateful for his service.
To each their own. If you're not satisfied with a representative, you can certainly exercise your right to vote them out or state your opinions on them in a civilized manner. There are varying political points of view in this country, which is part of what makes the US great.

I don't hold much faith in people nor their actions. People lining up around the block for a guy they probably knew little about may have been the same ones that didn't fly down to see a close relative buried... I base all of my opinions by what I know and can prove, at least in my mind, before accepting anything as fact.
When senority and holding positions of chairman etc become any part of a priority or goal, I no longer hold any faith on that person's personal goals being in line with mine. I am biased and very cautious of positions of influence though, so take that in to consideration

Anyhoo...it's the end of an era in the Senate, so to speak. Time to reflect on the man and his accomplishments, then move forward, as there is much work to be done.

Like completely starting over with term limits?
