    Tempers flare in South Florida over healthcare overhaul

    Tempers flare in South Florida over healthcare overhaul

    Tempers flare in South Florida over healthcare overhaul - Today's Top Stories - MiamiHerald.com

    Confrontation over a national healthcare overhaul reached South Florida on Wednesday, when routine office hours for the staff of a Broward-area congressman turned into a raucous protest.
    The incident is like others that reflect nerves frayed by the nationwide debate. Democrats decry what they describe as a mob rule orchestrated by special interests trying to protect the status quo; Republicans call it genuine grass-roots concern over a costly government takeover.

    Though only a handful of constituents typically show up at the Lighthouse Point public library once a month with questions for U.S. Rep. Ron Klein's staffers -- often questions about Social Security checks or passport applications -- this time about 100 people packed the room for two hours.

    The group was rowdy, rude and fired up about healthcare.



    Yes nerves are frayed. and no, our representatives our our servants, "rude" is incorrect. People are upset and fighting back on Obama's ill attempt to take over 1/7th of the US economy....

    People do not want it, and they are making thier voices heard...
    Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us

    I've never seen anything like this before, and I'm loving it. It's about time real Americans began standing up for America, rather that the far left nuts that we've had to endure (and laugh at) over the years.

    The American people are waking up to the socialist takeover of our country. It's awseomse! This ain't Canada, nor Europe--thank God--so those kinds of policies aren't going to fly here.

    Another contrived event, which we are supposed to think is a "grass roots" movement of people fed up with Omamerica. All these events are coordinated through RecessRally.com, and reading their remarks it sounds like they will not stop at invading offices:

    How about a change of venue? Instead of protesting at his office, I say we gather outside his home. Let’s really send a message.
    Recess Rally – 08.22.09 Asheville “Tea Party” Protest

    This is a gross misuse of the democratic process, these people don't want a conversation, they want to stop the conversation. This is no more legitimate than the thugs who invaded the Dade county election board in 2000, and is probably organized by the same people.
    If the strategy of the Republican party is to stage "outrage", then enlist posters like you to "confirm" the outrage on forums like this, then the Republican party deserves to be run out of business, the sooner the better.

    Contrived my ass... Look at the polls pal. These people represent the majority of the American people, and no matter how many times you try and write these people off, it doesn't change that fact.

    I recommend you call them "terrorists", "Nazis", and "hate mongers" as often as possible between now and the 2010 mid-terms, and see what that gets you.

    You can't stand in front of a group of American, and lie you ass off, and expect them to sit back and let you talk. That's just not how it works here in the real world.

    This isn't a misuse of Democracy. This is what happens when piss off thise many Americans. It's funny to see how the Libbos are scared ****less at the reaction they're getting from the people.

    Congress and The President work for us. We're they're bosses. When you have a job and a boss and you screw-up, you get your ass chewed. When you sit there and tell a bald face lie to your boss, you get your ass chewed, some more. In the private sector, you lie to your boss like that and you get fired. I have zero tolerance for lieing from my employees and I don't care what they lied about. I think with the current government, they are going to find out that they are going to get fired for all the lies they're telling the American people. Most Dems, including the president might as well save everyone alotta time and trouble...and money...and just let their terms expire and go on about their post-political lives.

    How are they coordinated through RecessRally.com? From what I read it seems they are organizing protests later this month. Do you have any proof that they had anything to do with these town hall meetings?

    Not true. The people came to voice their opinions, and they did. In fact, it was their opinion that nobody would listen to in Congress. They have a right to be angry.

    If the Democratic Party wants to call the American people who are exercising their right to free speech "angry mobs" and completely ignore their legitimacy, then they should be the ones going out of business.

    If you are going to make the claim that these protesters are all somehow minions of the Republican Party who are only attended to disrupt and stop conversation, you are going to have to prove it.

    I can't think of anything more desirable than for the Democrats to persist in denigrating vast swaths of the American population as "angry mob" and "unreasonable". The more they piss of the real Americans, the more the real Americans will realize the total disdain their would-be masters hold them in.

    This is how revolutions start.
