Representative Joe Wilson Should Be Punished
Posted By: J. A. Faulkerson on September 11, 2009 |
South Carolina Representative Joe Wilson showed his level of respect for our president, and that's not a good thing. He should be punished severely for his poor judgment, lack of civility. He should have kept his mouth shut, just agree to disagree.
Representative Wilson shouted, "You lie!" during President Obama's address, but conservative Republicans have really cornered the market when it comes to lying.
They spent the whole summer misinforming the American public about the proposed reforms to health care, even leveling personal attacks against President Obama to gain a political advantage. President Obama was right in calling these conservative Republicans out last night because they have undoubtedly forgotten what it means to pursue the moral imperative, serve the common good.

Jen FadI agree with you Brother Mozell. That was such a blatant disrespect of the highest office. He shuld have been thrown out as an example to the rest of those ignorant people who say they represent the rest of us.

Siebra MuhammadIt pisses me off to see the kind of racist venom that has flown about. Rep. Joe Wilson needs to be more than punished, he needs his ass whipped. What has Barack Obama done to make people hateful, and bigoted conservative upset???

1. George Bush started the Bail Out because he said certain companies where to big to fail.
2. George Bush allowed more illegal immigrants into the country over the last eight years than any other president.
3. George Bush allowed healthcare cost to take up 16% of the gross national product.
4. George Bush sold the country to China to finance the war in Iraq.
5. George Bush allowed Blackwater, KBR, and the oil companies to rob the country of millions.
...and the No Child Left Behind act still continues to kick black students in the ass.
I work in the New Orleans public school district for over 7 years and counting, and I KNOW. What has President Obama done wrong??? As far as I can clearly recall, nothing. Like our friend Mozell said, they hate him because he's Black.
He was born half Black with an Swahili name. Reagan and those two Sons-Of-A-Bushes (that's right, I said those two Sons-Of-A-Bushes; let THAT go down in the history books, RACISTS!!!) both addressed schoolkids and you didn't see a damn thing wrong with it even when Dubya was sitting in a classroom reading a book UPSIDE DOWN!!! Watch it family, don't laugh!!!
