81. I'm so glad you said this! I was feeling alone in having this position.
I very much dislike the way pubs/teabaggers handle themselves.

I totally support organized labor.

I agree 100% with the Sentiment of Mr. Hoffa.

BUT, this is the same kind of hot rhetoric that got Mrs. Giffords shot, and has the potential to kill other people.

I agree that most people will understand these statements in the correct context in which they were presented, but all it takes is one person to read into it the wrong way, and go on a killing rampage. It would NOT be beneficial to us (liberals, progressives, or supporters of organized labor) if someone who is already on the brink of going on a spree actually does now, and his activities can be traced back to listening to this speech. We all KNOW that the pukes wouldn't hesitate to throw it in our faces.

Anger doesn't garner support, and often reduces it.

Hot-headed rhetoric shouldn't be tolerated from the pubs, and it shouldn't be tolerated from us.
