    @Susan NJ well sure we can make a moonshot but a volcano spewing molten lava is a force of nature much like a hurricane or any sort of giant storm. We can't control lots of things.

    A good indepth look at the sort of anger question.John Avlon is right we do have to be mindful about where all this can go. But can we really bundle the militias, 2nd amendment protesters and tea party all together?

    Good evening Joe Johns.

    Can volcano ash be sucked from the air? Is it a possibility?

    Don't you just hate it when really intelligent people use their gift for evil? It just makes me sick.

    Has anyone stopped to think about all the " activity" with mother nature? I'm not trying to be one of those dooms-dayers.....I just feel like with all the earthquakes and volcanoes and floods.... something is going on with the earth. Something is brewing....

    If someone is choosing a guy based on his voice, that person is superficial. I'll take intelligence any day!

    oh that was interesting – about the voices – there certainly are some voices that just kind of grate on one's nerves (and some that have the opposite effect). i guess when you find yourself trying to block out someone's voice ... it's time to get away from the voice. aarrgghh.

    Hi, You just reported that women "find men with steady voices more attractive." The author of the study just today said the study showed that men with monotone voices had more sexual partners, but that women DID NOT rate those voices as more attractive. Thus there is a difference explanation for why men with monotone voices have more partners.... Do your homework Anderson.

    I don't know what can bring us together as a Nation.

    There are so many types of communication to transmit conspiracy theories, stories, etc. Almost none of it fact checked, simply believed by most who hear or read them.

    I am becoming increasingly concerned at the "them vs us" attitude out there.

    We are All American. We may not agree with each other all of the time, but we do need to remember that we love our country the same.

    @Susan, NJ, "There is no proof that any of the Tea party people are violent."

    That is true. Neither side has a monopoly on fear mongering.

    They bring lawn chairs and homemade signs. They are mostly people who have never participated in rallies before. What percentage do you think have a criminal record?

    The pumping up of the fear and hate is just the catalyst the extremists need to justify actions based on pinned up frustrations since the elections. I think the ones who are complaining the most were looking for a reason to rebel against the current administration, and this was just the fuel they needed. Some of this hatred is deep-seated...

    @Emily The ash is very fine but feels like glass. Not good for respiratory problems. Mt. St. Helens was good for the apple crops in Washington State. NatGeo Mag. had a super article the year after the vol.

    @ starr, formerly known as vincent-I know. That's why looking into ship travel, propeller plane travel and other modes of travel might be a good idea.

    So if people are philosophically opposed to massive debt and reckless government spending should they not organize and protest?

    April 19, 2010 at 10:32 pm |
  27. Sonya, TN

    My only concern is people dont have the facts and is all stired up for something that isn't even true. This country will never eliminate Social Security, medicare or any major department. What else can we do?

    "History tells us that these people aren't anymore disruptive or violent than the protesters in the 60s and 70s who rioted every chance they could get."

    @Jo Ann, I think you have the right perspective (I hope). I suppose, after the protesters all get tired and go back to work, they'll go shrink back into their Barca Loungers in front of the TV like nothing ever happened.

    Katla is the one to be concerned about if that erupts we will all feel it, it could be an economic game changer...

    Governments all over the world have confiscated the guns of peaceful citizens. It is a control mechanism.

    April 19, 2010 at 10:30 pm |
  31. Emily

    I don't think that "protesters' are looking for individual notice.
    To me, many of these people want to be singled out... looking for the spotlight to be on them rather than the objective in it.

    My friend just quit the tea party after a meeting with few of their members last weekend.

    I agree with John

  34. Sharon Hastings

    Patriots, Tea partiers, oath keepers, militias, conspiracy theories. I do agree with the young woman who wound up saying people are scared. This is all about fear and needing to blame someone or some party or "the government".

    @Jane, yes it is getting really heated. @ megan~ good to see you tonight!

  36. Casey Jones - Palm Springs, CA

    I'm not scared. Period. "Fright Wing Politics" is an excellent way to frame this. I see this all leading to groups of persons who consider themselves superior or the voice of the people and, ultimately, trying to restrict my constitutional rights.

    There is no proof that any of the Tea party people are violent.

    @Jo Ann,
    "History tells us that these people aren't anymore disruptive or violent than the protestors...."

    I think that you are right. Many seem very media hungary to me.

    Tea Party members have brandished some pretty radical signs.

  40. Kimberly T. - Northern Cali

    Good evening everyone.

    I think she just admitted the reason for all of this right-winged extremism – FEAR!
    In my humble opinion, it's all unjustified. I think it all boils down to the fact that most never wanted President Obama to be president.

    April 19, 2010 at 10:28 pm |
  41. Sonya, TN

    As reported earlier, President Obama has not done anything to take their rights away but have actually been more for gun rights

    @ Betty Ann, you're right this is scary. I'm so afraid something bad is going to happen if this keeps up.

    I got invited to a Tea Party meeting, but was not up for it. It might have been interesting, but I'm not really to the right.

    Yes, planes are also safe at least now. I hope.

    It's referring to a voting revolution. No violence, But major change nonetheless.

    April 19, 2010 at 10:26 pm |
  47. BettyAnn, Nacogdoches,TX

    Maybe both sides are extreme and we should sit down and meet somewhere in the middle. We are one!

    They are trying to brand Tea Parties as radical by association.

    Oh great. Do the Oath Keepers decide whose human rights are respected and whose human rights are not–that's where this kind of stuff is going.

    History tells us that these people aren't anymore disruptive or violent than the protestors in the 60s and 70s who rioted every chance they could get.
