    Citing safety concerns, U. City cancels McCaskills event

    Citing safety concerns, U. City cancels McCaskills event | Political Fix | STLtoday

    A day after a Russ Carnahan event led to the arrests of five participants and a reporter, University City High School — where U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill was set to hold a similar event on Tuesday– announced that the forum has been canceled.

    The school district sent a news release this afternoon stating that the “reasons for the cancellation by the school district are due to concerns for the safety and security of its staff, community members attending the event, and for the students who would be on campus during that time.”
    Guess the Anti-Republicans' response to protest is to run and hide. When are they going to acknowledge that the answers they have are the wrong answers for their constituents? Why not just admit they made a mistake with HR3200, kill it, and go back to the drawing board and work on some real reform legislation for a change?

    You know, do what Congressmen and Senators are supposed to do?

    Haven't you received the memo (the one written in crayon)? Opposition to His Obamaness and the faithful Democratic servants is part of a Vast Right Wing Conspiracy™.

    You forget, I'm part of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. I can't read any memo without using that secret decoder ring from the Cracker Jack box....and Walgreens was all out of Cracker Jacks!

    At least, that's what the lunatic left would have you believe. Or perhaps I'm just a guy who reads the papers, thinks a bit, and actually demands that Congress hew to its mandate of representing the will of the people, rather than the will of Dear Leader's Chosen Few.

    Am I going to far to hope that perhaps our government will come to fear the people?

    I hope that is the case, and I thought I'd never see it.

    You really should read your source material. The school canceled the event, not sen. McCaskill. The dems are not running and hiding. Good lord this is the most pathetic thread yet from you...

    I read it and understood that. But I hope that such actions will send a clear message that the people are fed up with them and have been for a long time. I know Im fed up across the board, dems and reps.

    From your lips to Congress' ears. Congress should always fear the wrath of the people. Makes for good representative government.

    I thought you were above posting articles that you didn't actually read.

    Try again.

    Who cancelled the event?

    Obama Boost: New Poll Shows 76% Support For Choice Of Public Plan

    Yeah, cuz no one but 76% of this country want a public option.... those 24% should dictate what the rest of us want...... By the way, these stats are from a conservative paper: The WSJ!

    That said, it does have the following to say. It seems that the misinformation junkies are winning some over. Also, 35% are obviously undecided having not gotten to the information yet. Further, I think many are pissed that the public option has gotten watered down. This contributes to some of the negative numbers.

    That said, the president still has his work cut out for him. In the same NBC/WSJ poll, only 33 percent of respondents said they thought the president's health care plan, to the extent they knew of it, was a "good idea;" 32 percent said it was a bad idea.
    Other polls saying the same things:

    Poll: Most Back Public Health Care Option - CBS News (linking a CBS/NYT Poll)

    Another poll shows 'public' support - First Read - msnbc.com (siting Quinnipac)

    More current polls:

    Majority back Obama on health care reform: poll - Yahoo! News

    Tracking Poll Examines Public Opinion About Health Care Reform

    Most Favor Health Care Reform In New Poll

    Again, while numbers do go down, I think they are due to my comments above, not to people not wanting a public option. To think that is just wishful thinking from the minority right.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.
