    How could you vote to pass bill H.R. 1955: Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007? Do you think Americans’ should not have their civil liberties?! Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty?! I will do everything make it known that we have a state rep that is willing to take away our rights, because of a potential problem! That because of some people are potential threats that you believe the innocent must suffer as well! I love my freedoms to think what I want, and I am going to make sure everyone knows that you said yes to a bill that says I can no longer express them if they go against the government for fear of being a homegrown terrorist! I hope you can live with your decision on helping with the destruction of this once great country!

    When put in conflict, which is more important, the right to life or the right to own a gun if you are a criminal who has demonstrated a probability to reoffend? What would have happened if the Federal government did not step in when the KKK was raging across the south hanging and killing blacks and whites who supported Dr. King among others? Nothing would have happened because the disenfranchised Blacks of the South would not have had the opportunity to remove their abusive governments. It is far better to prevent a death in retrospect than to mourn the death after a lynching, LBJ knew this, which is why protections save American lives.

    Barney Frank’s attempts to create a “floor” under the housing market are ridiculous. Did this clown take an economics course in college? Creative destruction is at the heart of capitalism. Trying to prevent credit and asset markets from returning to equilibrium (the “destructive” flip side to the “creative” bubble we saw in the last year) will simply create more problems than it solves.

    Frank, Dodd, and Schumer may delay the inevitable, but they can not prevent the inevitable. More importantly, by propping up asset and credit markets through monetary and fiscal stimulus, they will ultimately hasten the collapse of the dollar.

    In the 1930s in response to the drop of the stock market having to with overspending and non-sustainable investments in the 1920s Congress and the President put in security programs protecting the stock market from further crashes. Despite the oil crisis of the 1970s and another smaller dip in the early 1990s the economy did not collapse until 2008 when the protections put in place by Roosevelt had been removed. I bet he took economics as well as history.

    I was flabbergasted the other day when a sign went up on our still developing subdivision. It reads: “NO CASH TO CLOSE, SELLER PAYS ALL CLOSING COSTS.” In spite of the footnote “Restrictions Apply” is this not illustration of how we got in this mess?

    Whatever happened to personal and financial responsibility? Bailout of mortage companies, banks, finance companies and imprudent individuals indeed!

  • Anonymous 09/30/2008 6:15pm

    After you said there was nothing wrong with Fannie May & Freddie Mack. You lied to the public. I think you should resign! You are not helping the people you are representing, yet you made a lot of money from them.

    I would have given Barney Frank a 100% if he had voted for a trans-inclusive ENDA.

  • arkadyka 02/03/2009 1:25pm

    Barney is responsible for the housing meltdown due to his social engineering visions. He should be ashamed of himself and step down.

    Better yet, someone run and get rid of this guy.

  • skip292 02/05/2009 10:23am

    I am so outraged at what I see going on in Washington that I’m ashamed to be an American! You childish idiots stand up there telling everyone how bad the other party is and everyone that doesn’t agree with your views as if you are really doing it for the people! That goes for both sides, I haven’t seen an honest bipartisan effort by anyone! And as far as the government being able to tell anyone how to run their business…you better look in the mirror first! Sick and Tired of lip-service in MT.

    You Should not be ashamed to be an American for our Representatives in Washington do not represent the GREAT Citizens of the UNITED STATES of America. In FACT they are a disgrace to this Great Nation and should all be thrown out of office for Treason on the highest level. they do not uphold the Constitution to which they swore an oath and this alone should be a crime punishable by impeachment at the least. We are a Great Nation under GOD and they on the otherhand are pathetic human beings and they deserve recognition as such.

    Where and when is there going to be a TEA Party.
    I am sick and tired of the LIES, deceit, lip service and treating us like sh—.
    Barney should be recalled. In fact, they should all be impeached for taking our retirements, but they have probably stolen theirs.

    Rep. Barney “The Dino” Frank is a domestic enemy of the United States Constitution. Full stop. HR 1022 is a violation of the Bill of Rights and the Second Amendment. You have violated your oath of office and should be removed.

    Barney Frank should be run out of congress for his support of the bailout bill and for his support of the Wall Street crooks

  • americanpilot 05/24/2009 7:08am

    Barney Frank- Even looks like that green and purple monstosity. Him and all the other democraps and some republicans should be deported out of the country. They are sooo smart, send them to Sudan, Ethiopia and Somalia. Let them set up a government there. That fat loud mouthed jackass!

  • jodamur 06/06/2009 10:47am

    Barney Frank says their is 0% inflation On what planet is he referring to? The Federal Reserve Is Destroying the value of the dollar at an alarming rate and they have no intention of slowing this process down until they have succeeded in destroying our currency. New World Order and currency is their ultimate goal. Barney Frank is the chairman of the Finance committee and has no intention of calling for a vote on HR-1207 to audit the FEDERAL RESERVE. I would like to know who voted for this so called representative of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA? He is a pathetic Human Being and a sorry representative to BOOT.

  • VirginianPatriot1861 07/07/2009 3:45pm

    This guy is a disgrace. He’s a big part of what caused a lot of the problems we are having right now and I hope the people in his State wake up and realize he needs to be fired. I don’t want to see this clown reelected EVER again.

  • CowboyRobert 07/18/2009 12:34pm

    You know, I agree with myself that its highly unfair that if you grow your own stuff and smoke your own stuff why the hell does it matter? I mean, those who smoke weed either has a record or that just begining to smoke something different. Sad enough to say we have every right to smoke what ever is somkeable, right? Yea so what. I’ve been in a holding cell for 4 hours, does that make me a criminal? So freaking what, I been ticketed so many time because of a moving violation. But yet, when I smoke my stuff, it helps me ease my mind, it soothes my emotions, and hell, it gives me the best erection than a viriga does. I’ve got nothing to hide. I am an independant american that has every right to do as I please.

  • yyzrd 08/19/2009 7:32am
    This guy thinks he is “better and smarter” than his constituents…..and has a huge ego…….he needs to go back to his male prostitution business in the basement of his house(remember that fine example for the youngsters of the community)…………..Barney probably doesn’t read these, you know it is below his station. But if ya do Barn, just know that we are watching, and our goal will not only include cleaning house of vermin like you, but also eliminating your benefits after you’re run out of town. So enjoy your privilage now because the country is starting to realize that the smell of stench is eminating from you
  • yyzrd 08/19/2009 7:46am

    oh by the way Barn, don’t feel alone, we are calling for any member of congress or the senate who voted on the stimulous bill with-out reading it, Republican or Democrat to re-sign immediately for breaking their oath of office.

  • Squidly2112 08/19/2009 6:53pm

    How incredibly stupid are you people in Massachusetts? Have you people not even 2 brain cells amongst you rub together? Why do you idiots continue to re-elect complete morons like Barney Frank? Its pathetic… I mean really, elect a Democrat, elect a Republican, elect which ever party you want, but please, can you people be any dumber than to elect someone like Barney Frank?

  • GovOwnsU 11/05/2009 5:23pm

    Barney Frank, you are the most ARROGANT, RUDE little boy I have ever seen. I have watched you on several occasions and you use Alinsky tactics and try to humiliate those who disagree with you. You yell and you tell EVERYONE that they interrupt you, trying to monopolize conversations. That, you fool, is because you keep yapping and never let anyone get a word in! If they disagree with you, God help them, right? I wish your constiuents would GIVE YOU THE BOOT!

  • rugby6 11/07/2009 4:53pm

    I hope congressman Frank is spending some money on speech therapy….he and the other 534 idiots certainly make enough. Speaking of that……..the moron has the gall to suggest that some people’s salaries should be capped. Who’s capping the salaries of the members of congress? They’ve been taking the taxpayers to the cleaners for years. We need to wake up America and start demanding that the bozo’s in Washington earn their pay and work for the people that sent them there. Let’s give them a wake up call next year……….vote the idiots out.

  • Homebuilt7 11/27/2009 8:53am

    Yes – can a person from Mass who voted for this idiotic criminal speak up? I would love to know why they voted for him. What were you thinking?!?
