    I'd like to know if the Dr. Betty is interviewing, who is saying finances aren't important, would be willing to make less money in order to make health care more affordable to everyone.

    A Santa Rosa school board member who reported forbidden prayer at a school meeting is now dealing with threats to her life and has the protection of U.S. Marshalls... What is happening "christians" threatening to kill or injure a woman school board member, because she had reported an incident forbidden by the courts. The insult to the President, screaming matches at town hall meetings...it goes on and on. I'm worried the fabric of our country has been torn and can't be sewn together.

    I'm concerned about the escaped killer who was let out of a mental hospital along with other patients so they could go to the county fair. 31 patients and 11staff members were on that field trip together. And the patient who escaped has done this before, escaped years ago on a field trip. No consideration at all for the public who would be at that fair. It makes you wonder who in charge at that state hospital thought this field trip was a good and safe idea ???? I heard an interview with the police who have to try and find this person and they also want to know why this was allowed to happen and they want to know why it is when this guy went missing the staff members on the field trip waited 2 hours to notify the police??? Since supervisory staff at this hospital don't have any better judgement then this and the staff who were on the trip and realized someone couldn't be accounted for but waited 2 hours to contact police, all these employees need to lose their jobs. They better hope and pray hard that no one get hurt or killed because of their stupidity.

    Its a little late to be worried about the fabric of this country you idiot.. Christains have nothng to do with it.. Why should't prayers be allowed to have a prayer at school? And the statement you made about Christians threatening to kill a board member because of a prayers in school..? What is this Nazi Russia? If you have rights then Christains have rights. If Blacks have rights then white have rights. Have you forgotten this is America. And the screaming matches at town hall meeting.. Why not , and again your an idiot.. Why shouldnt WE THE PEOPLE ..hold accountable the senators and congress people that we elect be accountable? Whats the matter with you? This is not Russia. What do you want, you and your ways have allowed this country to stripping away, any religious belief's , moral tradition, and to close our eyes that we want to pass out flowers and peace to Iran, North Korea, Russia,Turkey,Jordan.. shall I go on. You really think, that EVERYONE likes us.. and that WE will NEVER have another incident here in the US.. WOW, Mary, your eyes are so wide shut.. No wonder our students our not educated in this country. They learned nothing they know nothing. Books are stripped away, past history is not learned anymore . Moral, well forget that, Do what you want its okay.. Well then you know what you have people like you ..
