    Re: Ark. crowd mocks lawmakers over Obama health plan

    does anyone believe that the reverend, laila, jerry, mr v, james, zyphlin, apdst, LaMidRight, harry g, the real con, scarecrow, coronado and myself are all paid shills and gop op's?

    how absurdly silly

    the groundswell is real, it is accurately reflected and powerfully expressed in the words and sentiments of the good folks named, all of whom are obviously sincere

    those folks in little rock and philly and the simsbury supermarket did not arrive in buses

    that's laughable

    with all due respect, anyone who looks at those videos and sees apparatchiks instead of barbecuers is, in my opinion, as politically tone deaf as the pelosi/obama crew running the white house

    y'know, the folks who ATTACK those who can't quite agree with em

    the people who ask us to RAT each other OUT

    the treas secty who CUSSES OUT the heads of the FED, the SEC, the FDIC

    the chicago pol who writes THREATENING LETTERS to the gov of AZ complaining about his senator's sincere sympathies

    you can't HEAR sincerity ON THIS THREAD?!!!

    pardon me, but---LOLOLOL!

    shills for the insurance consessions---sure, we are

    why, i'm proudly primping my prudential parka as we parley

    LOLOLOL!

    I'm more surprised someone called us friends. Outside of the cooking thread I dare say me and reverend bicker more than act friendly

    I'll attest to that.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    What that does in increase demand, which in turn drives up prices, hence the need for price caps.

    If everyone is getting paid to do this but me, I'm gonna be pissed.

    As for being a Republican, I left that disaster several years ago.

    Not exactly, if the risk pool goes up but usage stays somewhat neutral, then people will see a premium decrease, however if the pool and risk meet each other closely there will be little change, the worst case scenario is pool shrinkage and usage increases, that, along with increasing healthcare costs are the reasons for high prices and cost controls that do a disservice to consumers.

    Not defending Rachel Maddow, but there is no way in hell you can compare WND and FreeRepublic to her. One is a respected journalist that works hard at her job, and is open and honest about being a liberal. The other, well WND just posted an article trying to make the claim that Obama is the anti-christ using some translation .....easily shot down. Freerepublic, are they credible journalists? No, they are not. Not saying that anyone and everyone that gets a job on TV is more special, but I can say that anyone and everyone can easily put up a B.S. "News" site. Most of these sites, like Huffington Post, are not news, but rather portals that link to actual journalistic work done by others filtered through a political ideology. That is where I would draw the line.

    Again it all comes down to what their actions are, and will people be honest about it. If Tim Kaine, DNC Chair, organizes groups to attend townhall meetings, then he needs to be honest about it. If these groups go merely to stand outside and hold signs, fine by me.

    I have already stated this before for the record. These townhalls should be used legitimately for people that want to interact with their representatives. It is THEIR townhall, so I do not support anyone on either side going to one to disrupt. If an opponent of healthcare reform goes to his congress members town hall to voice his opposition, well god damn I will fight for his right of free speech and to be heard. THAT is what this country is about.

    But these groups tied to the rightwing PACs and lobbyists fomented a strategy that was dishonest and disruptive. They are trying to STOP discourse and engagement on this topic. This is unethical to say the least.

    And if we have the issue come up in the coming months regarding sending more troops to Afghanistan, I will oppose MoveOn.org from disrupting townhall meetings, but not protesting. If they wish to stand out in front with signs, again that is fine by me.
