When the left was disrupting the 1968 and 1972 Republican National Conventions (and, in the process, hoping to 'off' a few elderly Republicans) that was characterized as speaking truth to power. When the right and moderates are legitimately protesting a 1,000 page health care bill that was thrown together with indecent haste by a Congress primarily interested in rushing to adjournment, that's called being a "brownshirt" or a "Nazi" and thus those with legitimate concerns about this gigantic boondoggle are being insulted and demonized by the very public servants whose salary they pay! They are scurrying forward to pass a bill they haven't even read! Has anyone read this piece of legislation? Actually, the reason they're experiencing such protests is that someone HAS read the legislation! WE have!
Why should we have any faith in the health care legislation knowing that it will be administered by the same geniuses who cannot handle the Cash for Clunkers program effectively!?
Somehow it occurs to me that the best method to ensure your reelection in 2010 is to refrain from insulting the very people whose votes you need to keep your job. I'm just saying!
And that arrogant pipsqueak who is currently in the White House suggests we just "shut up and get out of the way" - he can shove that up his you-know-what with feathers on it! Hey, you rude, ignorant little shit - YOU work for ME not the other way around. You WILL shut up and listen to what your EMPLOYERS are telling you they want! Come to think of it, that's probably what you're doing - but WE THE PEOPLE are your true employers - not George Soros and the rest of that leftist gang of yours!
And yes folks, I'm back from my carotid artery surgery - a procedure that probably saved my life and one which might not have been available to me under this new legislation! In all probability it would have been a "rationed" procedure denied me, despite my private health care coverage. And it may be this prospect of rationed care that is causing my doctor to insist on doing the second procedure in early September!
