    Only when the labor union thugs start throwing punches at people and dragging them away from town hall meetings.

    Sadly, no, I am not joking.

    Does it happen often? Not historically. Generally speaking, town hall meetings are exercises in ennui. But with the rise of public protest over the Anti-Republicans cram-down tactics, the Anti-Republicans' goon squad (also known as labor unions) have been resorting to their tried-and-true tactics.

    Google "Kenneth Gladney". For protesting against HR3200 he got put in the hospital.

    So far, I am unaware of any of the labor union hooligans being arrested.

    Intimidation and assault is never acceptable.
    I hope they are arrested .... and sued.

    To be fair to Republicans, i don't recall trade unions stopping democrats entering town halls when they were protesting everything

Err....no. There is no excuse for Congressmen snarling at questions just because they don't like the questions--bad form, bad manners, bad politics.

    Congressmen who fail to pay attention to their constituents merit all the ass-chewing they get and then some. The Anti-Republicans are just pissed that voters won't take them at their word that all the pie-in-the-sky promises that Dear Leader made about health care really will come true, and that no one need fret about the details buried in those thousand pages.

    And why should voters do such a silly thing? The Anti-Republicans have already admitted they haven't read it. They only plan on voting on it. Reading it and understanding it....well, the Anti-Republicans have people for that (just not "We the People", it seems).
    I see you are still quick to misrepresent what some one is saying.

    I tried to be clear, but in case you missed it, to be clear, I think rep. Scott was in the wrong in this case.

    I also want to be clear that I believe there is a problem with people of both sides making asses of themselves at these town halls, and these people are interfering with those who are actually interested in hearing what their rep has to say. I know this is not something you will be able to do, but could you at least try to take a second, look at this from a nonpartisan stance and see how some on both sides are in the wrong, and admit it.

    When all else fails. Act real pissed and pretend to be dumb. I've used it myself to get out of a sticky situation. People forget what the problem was about and become charmed.

    I agree that getting ugly and getting violent in a public forum is wrong and should not be tolerated....oh wait, that's what the labor union thugs are doing to health care protesters. The protesters are the ones getting beaten and pushed aside--they're not the ones doing the beating and pushing.

    And those getting violent should be arrested and prosecuted. However, this does not excuse those anti's who shout down and try and disrupt these events. I find it interesting how you cannot admit that people on your side of the issue can be in the wrong....

    To be fair some of the regular folks are shouting crap at their representatives to make a stand and not allowing the rep to answer.

    I think if all were to remain cordial and allow the reps to back themselves in a corner, that would speak louder than anger.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    If they were truly being disruptive, cops would be handing out citations for disturbing the peace. Angry citizens are going to shout. The way to avoid that is for their representatives to not make them angry in the first place.

    Town Halls never strictly adhere to Robert's Rules of Order. It's rather pathetic that the only response the Anti-Republicans have to the ad hoc anger of citizens is to complain about being the focal point of that anger.

    People are pissed. The Anti-Republicans need to take two steps back and ask themselves why that is.
