    This health care reform is not popular. I don't give a rat's ass how much stock you put in Obamessiah. This health care reform is simply not popular.
    Yep. Another Rasmussen Poll shows 55% favor repealing the health care bill, and only 42% oppose a repeal, according to the first poll released after passage. 52% would support a candidate this fall who wants to repeal the bill, while only 41% would support a candidate who opposes repeal.

    Looks like the majority either don't support the bill, or they support repealing the bill.

    I hear a lot from the leftists about all the "lies" the right is telling...

    I realize you don't understand that they will have to decide who gets what treatment and when, so I don't wish to discuss that one further until we start seeing it's ugly head (Death Panels)... so let's just let that one cure a bit..

    What other bits of information do you believe is a lie?

    It was a parody post based on one made by Chappy that was almost word for word the same (only aimed at conservatives) in another thread where they lambasted someone for making excuses for the actions people took and then came in here and started making an excuse that it was really probably a confused republican.

    I'm sorry, you've completely confused me now.

    Are you suggesting that Councilman's proposal that this was a disgruntled Obama minion attempting to create a furor and blame it on tea partiers is somehow wrong?

    I actually liked the parody. One, it included my blanket condemnation of political violence whoever commits it.

    But, two, it reminded people that we should be on the lookout for anybody who looks the other way, when people with similar views use inappropriate means to express themselves. I believe when we look the other way, it's a tacit endorsement of that action.

    I may be guilty of looking past this specific incident; frankly, I took Cantor's claim that someone had attacked his unmarked offices as lacking credibility. I think the Richmod Police statement bears that out, but, I should have added that political violence is never acceptable. Ever. And, if this had been someone firing a shot and Rep. Cantor's office, then it was wrong and profoundly harmful to our nation.

    The series of smashed windows of Democratic offices across as wide an area as Arizona, Kansas and New York state in a relatively brief time frame matched the call by Mike Vanderboegh for just such violent action. He's an obscure radical, a militia leader from the 90s, who took credit for the attacks.

    Here's some of his recent postings and quotes.

    “And if we do a proper job, if we break the windows of hundreds, thousands, of Democrat Party headquarters across this country, we might just wake up enough of them to make defending ourselves at the muzzle of a rifle unnecessary.” — Mike Vanderboegh¹

    “if you wish to send a message that Pelosi and her party cannot fail to hear, break their windows.” — Mike Vanderboegh²

    “What I was trying to get across was that people do not understand how on the edge of civil conflict this country is.” — Mike Vanderboegh³

    Now, I think if Mike Vanderboegh in Pinson, Alabama claims credit for these attacks across the country; I consider that a campaign of terror directed not just at the Democratic Party, but the American people and their way of life. Maybe it's all in his head, or, maybe misguided people are responding to his calls for violence. I don't know, but, I think it deserves to be condemned by everyone because we all have a stake in our non-violent political process.

    For me what was even more disturbing than the Mr. Vanderboegh's rantings, was the muted response about the political violence, organized or not, from Republican congressional leadership for days afterward; at last we have seen Leader Boehner step up and declare:

    “Violence and threats are unacceptable. That is not the American way.” — House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio)¹

    It's about time!

    Now, that the last vote is complete and the health care reform program is the law of the land, we should look forward to everyone calming down and moving on. Hopefully, the worse is over.
    “Real environmentalists live in cities, and they visit what's left of the wilderness as gently and respectfully as possible.” — Donna Moulton, letter to the editor, Tucson Weekly, published on August 23, 2001

    Re: House GOP No. 2: Someone shot at my office

    I now hear that the Rhichmond police believe that the trojectile that hit The Cantor's office was most likely fired in the air and hit his place bt accident.
    Just by listening to the hate mouthed Tea Partiers and the so called right to lifers and the bithers I did believe that anyone ould have fired at CANTOR since he was the the Tea Partiers side. he also puked out a staement blaming the Democrats for the aattacks that the Democrats were the victims of. That is 1884 tal Herr CANTOR !!!!

    The Republicans were giddy as pigs in crap when they saaw the Tae Partiers attacking Prez BO and the Democrats and even urged them on with very strong anti Obama and anti Demoractic statements. The Republicans incited the Tea Partiers and then they blamed the Democrats when it was the Democrats who were getting attacked.

    Come off it Cantor your words caused the vilolence and now you whine !!!

    I'm not whining, I hate the bill, but hey, I can sell insurance, and the bill will increase premiums. Even though Americana ****ed ourselves royally by voting in this particular adm. and congress into power and they in turn ****ed the entire American political spectrum I can make more money. I'm just asking people to be honest about what happened here. Best yet, I take no blame in any of it, the people I voted for tried to do things the right way.




    Be honest Redress, the whole process is rife with stories of wide scale abuses.



    Correct, if the thing is not repealed the court will be the judge eventually. As to unsupported allegations.....there is plenty of evidence that something fishy took place, but hey, the congress or a special prosecutor would have to look at the case, and it is at the discretion of a majority congress that just voted for the bill......so......I'm not expecting anything to come out in particular.
    So you have absolutely nothing concrete except you want to believe the democrats are bad people and boo hoo we lost.

    And while you are doing that...

    Sixty-two percent (62%) are angry at the current policies of the federal government, with 42% who are very angry. While this is a sizable number, it’s slightly lower than the findings nationally.

    Since health care has been the dominant topic this entire year, its in these numbers.
    OK, so yeah, things are going over your head again and I need to talk alot slower. Senators, they vote on bills in congress. Governors, they do not. See this very large, unsubtle difference. I knew you could...
