NVR Roberts' Seizure

I feel sooooo non-vegan and Thich Nhat Hahn-not-approved.  I'm kind of happy John Roberts had a seizure.  He's using the Supreme Court to rape the environment for his big business cronies.  If only he'll have the big one after the next president is sworn in.  That's so mean, I'm almost ashamed of myself.  Almost.  But I don't feel sorry for rapists.  They get the karma they've earned.

Let me ease your guilt by agreeing with you HH! Too bad that last one didn't land him in the lake he was at...maybe the lake could have taken care of him for us...of course now that we wrote these opinions we are probably now going to be investigated by some ultra consertive black ops group and one day we will just disappear...

Maybe they will torture us by not letting us eat meat - just beans, grains, fruits, veggies, and nuts.  Oh, the humanity!

Are you kidding me! Meat producers are so deep in the governments pocket it will be more like the other way around! did you know that if meat was not subsidesed by the gov it would cost around $35 a lbs!!! Of course veg and fruit produces are not helped like this so we pay more for them...what a twisted reality!

Arg!  You're right.  So, in the face of the Patriot Act - it's horrible news about John Roberts.  I wish him a speedy recovery.  (I cave so fast.)

As someone who's father had 2 seizures and subsequently died I find it in extremely poor taste and almost disgusting that you would make a statement saying you are happy that someone had a seizure.  Since you don't know how that effects a family I can only assume it's ignorance allows you to make a statement such as that.

Was what happened to your family terrible?  Yes.  Did I make Roberts have a seizure?  No.

I have tried, but I can't muster up any chagrin.  The people in my family die of cancer.  If Roberts had cancer and someone was a little gleeful, I wouldn't feel they were attacking my family.  There's some perspective involved.

I'm very sorry about your family--my comments were said in frustration with the person and what he stands for not with the medical condition. I'm sorry you have been offended by my comments. It can be hard to convey scarcasim--I of course would never wish illness or death on anyone. However, I wouldn't call someone like Robbert's "people".

I too am sorry for your loss mirrya1. I lost my father back in October to a heart attack. I lost my mother to cancer back in April.....I don't have a problem with Dick Cheney's heart being a beat down, shriveling, three sizes too small, cold, manipulating  muscle.....or any other neocon having health problems for that matter....maybe the stress of the "crimes" they have committed (the injuries, death, and destruction have and will finally catch up with them......This I have to say:

These neocons have caused so much death....SO much pain.....they still are doing it.....
-as I've said before...."F*CK Dick Cheney!
and.....F*CK "the guy" who is slowly trying to take away a woman's right to choose for herself!

It all kinda makes me belive in karma.  ;)

I for one do not wish for death or illness in ANYONE, even someone who has a different political prospective.  I find it distasteful to celebrate another person's hardship.  Remember that Roberts has a family...and several small children.  By all means, disagree with someone's politics or actions, but when you rejoice in their pain and the pain of their family, you cheapen yourself and your argument.

And....the "death and pain they have caused for others"?! Does that "cheapen it?"

I did not wish it...it happened.....how about the children of fathers and mothers they view as "collateral damage"...what about them?..........

we become "immune" to the numbers of those killed everyday......why? Because those "over there" don't believe in the same make believe "god" that they believe in?

I personally....do not think they care....they might say they do....but their lives go on......

They would not take a "bullet" for this country...nor have any of them ever volunteered to.......

John Roberts.....wants to take your "rights" away....he thinks it's OK to do just that....WHY? :-\

He also thinks those "rotting away" in illegal prisons have no "rights".....

nor do those that do not believe what he does.....

gays can't (and should not be allowed) to marry...

women should not have the right to choose....

it's OK to change laws that have been "set in stone" for years and years......

he's as "evil" as the rest......

hopefully he'll be replaced......doubtful.....but hopefully.......

Two wrongs don't make a right.
If you want compassion for the world, you must lead by example and be compassionate yourself.  The test of compassion is not whether you care for your loved ones, people who agreee with you or soft, fluffy animals...the true test of compassion is to have mercy for your enemies.

I....
Think I DO lead by example....trust me I do.......I am more than "compassionate".....

I give too much of myself to have anyone say anything with regards to that.....
with...my own "blood sweat and tears"..as well as.....money.....time.....educating others....

those that "know me" would agree.........

Those I was speaking of......they are the ones that have "no compassion" or "mercy" for their enemies.....all in the name of "make believe".........remember.....their god is the "only" god.......

Those that are killed or injured because of their actions.....well....they are just statistics......numbers....souless....

I don't think that....I think they count.....it hurts me reading the "numbers killed" everyday......

MOST...just go on with their lives......

Dave, I know that you are extremely compassionate, and that you care deeply about animals, human rights and the environment...
I just meant that we should be careful not to become hateful, even with someone who supports and futhers the cause of what we oppose.  That doesn't mean we can't fight for what we think is right.

I've been in meetings all day, so I'm just getting back to this thread.  Thanks, Dave.  You said what I think.

yeah...I have to admit IM a little offended by all this too. My mom was an epileptic and had so many seizures it cause brain damage.....basically destroyed my entire life because I was 12 and had to start taking care of my mom (feeding, dressing, etc) Yeah...um, then I was diagnosed with epilepsy...and things just got worse....seizures are really not like a weapony sort thing to torment bad people.... :-[

not laughing.

I'm really sorry a number of you are offended,  :(but this thread has nothing to do with the disease Robert's might have.
I fully agree with how HH felt, because I had exactly the same thought when I heard the news report. I also agree with davedrum. These feelings that people are having don't reflect badly on compassion, since they are having them because they are compassionate people.
My God, we have to fight back...too many people are dying and if we feel negative about the people committing the murders we're entitled.
Our country is dying!!!
Hello, homeland security :D

The focus of the anti-Roberts comments weren't about seizures.  The comments focused specifically on seizures were the comments bashing the people who weren't focusing on them.  

The comments were in reaction to severe frustration about the direction our government is going and how Bush's agenda will continue to be advanced for as long as Roberts is in office.  He will directly be responsible for the suffering and death of many, many people.  Supporting the Supreme Court means supporting Guantanamo.  Do you know what those who have been released from Gitmo have done?  They've gone home to their families.  In defending Roberts, a defense is made that it is okay to keep those people from their families.  I am sorry that tragedy has touched some of your families in such horrible ways.  I can't be sorry that something has happened to Roberts exactly because I value families.
