    Despite the warning on the OFA site, letters containing these exact talking points are now appearing in newspapers across the country. The line about the new study appears in letters sent to the following papers:



    Here is an actual case of "astro-turfing" and plagerism to boot. What do you all think of these sorts of things?

    Pathetic but not surprising. One question however about plagiarism; Is it only a crime when someone makes money from said plagiarism? I forget

    I don't think so. Schools throw you out because of it.


    I find it funny how the multiple daily threads on say a former governer will get 100's of responses, but something like this, very few.

    I think it's going to bite these idiots pushing these talking points and the newspapers in the ass. In 99% of any legislation, this move would be fine and little to no resistance would be found - but as health care has now caught everyone's attention and the process has pissed off enough of the America people that the corruption of such a move is being observed and reported, this will only pour more gas on the anti-government fire.

    Pure evidence that Washington really doesn't get it. The entire country could burn down tomorrow and they'd act like nothing is wrong. What's the vocabulary word for "increasingly out of touch"??
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    This is further evidence that this White House along with most of the ruling party are hypocrites and unethical.

    They will stoop to what ever they have to to get their way and turn around and make AstroTurf allegations against the Tea Party organizers.

    From what I could see of the Tea Party folks, they heard there was a protest and dropped what they were doing and when to join in.

    When I saw this story yesterday I just shook my head.

    If Obama gets his way on his PHONY Health Plan & Cap and Trade he will be living up to the title Der Fuhrer in Chief of America.

    In a few years after the coming Revolution from it and when Obama is long gone, Obama will be looked upon by the People of the coming new America as every bit as evil as the German Fuhrer of the 30s & 40s.

    People who have lost their minds over Obama and still support this anti-American fool will be saying things like we didn't know.

    I believe they don't know. Just look at some of the arguments posted here defending Obama's mistakes like Cash for Clunkers which was a total debacle.

    That screw up was nothing compared to the total destruction of our economy that will come if Obama is allowed to have his way, and we have time to stop him.

    I get it that people hated Bush. I was no fan either. I get it that people fell for the Obama lies of hope and change, but no one wanted the change to be the destruction of the Nation and usurpation of the Constitution we have seen Obama pushing us toward.

    AstroTurf is pare for the course with this White House and the whole Socialist/Marxist push currently under way.

    Alzheimer's?

    It's incredible to me that some of our politicians are this out of touch, or really this corrupt. They have to be watching the polls, they have to know how many calls are coming into their switchboards, they have to know how unprecedented the protests from the grass roots are.

    So these people are either politically suicidal, crazy, or senile.
