    look at these idiots...



    http://www.dailykostv.com/w/002028/

    you can talk about freedom of speech and everything else but this is just pure idiocy. conservatives might be winning the message battle right now with their fear tactics, intimidation and misinformation but those tides will turn. As the economy is showing improvement in virtually every indicator right now, stimulus is working and we are making gains in afghanistan, this lobby-induced republican false outrage will begin to look really really silly in several months.

    Enjoy the tides right now...they will be a' changin'

    The real issue here is....Have these people read the bill? Are they savvy enough to know what they read even if they had? The answer undoubtedly is no, and no. So... where are they getting this angst, anger from? You guessed it! From those bastions of truth, the right wing radio talk show hosts... Whose only real concern is their ratings, and how much they will make from their radio shows.... which has nothing to do with factual information, instead having to do with how they can skew the facts to make them a bigger paycheck! Lest we forget... the sky is falling!!!!

    Posting a link to raw video footage that happens to be on KOS is not quoting KOS. Hopefully you understand that difference??? Maybe not.

    Most of those pictures you posted are probably democrats interested in learning about the healthcare debate. Just because some insurance stooge photoshopped some misplaced labels on them doesn't prove a thing. Hopefully you understand that??? Maybe not.

    Hmmmm...Raw footage of video vs. photoshopped pictures of people who for all we know could be at a PTA meeting at a middle school. Your response is really, with all due respect. a PERFECT example of how easily some people are swayed in this debate and how little it takes to convince someone that Obama is a NAZI and wants to give all senior citizens cyanide tabs.

    Its sad that as a nation,that leaves close to 50 million of its citizens w/o health insurance and just this week the five top health insurance companies reported a total of 8 BILLION in profits, there are so many people who can't find the compassion nor the insight that healthcare reform is a GOOD thing and instead disrupt those who want to find a healthy compromise in the debate and push through at least some level of reform.

    In watching your video (which I actually did befer criticizing it) it loks to me like the SEIU was actually the guy knocked down and kicked on the ground. You might want to watch it yourself.

    As Bill Maher so accurately put it;

    "New Rule: Just because a country elects a smart president doesn't make it a smart country."

    The joke/point of the pics....you missed it. You're right though, they may be Democrats or Republicans.

    No...not a PTA meeting. Once again, you missed the joke. I've never called him a Nazi and once again, thank you for putting words in MY mouth. Assumptions are a terrible thing by the way.....

    Really? 50 million? Who does Medicare cover? Who does Medicaid cover? The VA? The Gov can't run Medicare/Medicaid properly yet they'll do a wonderful job now?

    All I see is a bunch of angry people who let things get a bit out of hand. That is what happens when varying ideals clash. This section of the message board is scary and filled with mob-mentality! I am calling the press!

    Name calling is silly, but I an not worried about being called names. Would not be the first time, and I am darn sure it would not be the last time.

    Mob mentality is equally as silly. Sure, I have been in some heated discussions on here (football forums), and just like at this "town hall meeting" it has not really accomplished anything, other than open the window for more rousing.

    This is the American way. Like it or not. He who yells the loudest, wins. No points have to be made, and no civil discussions have to take place. I am sure in that loud ruckus at the meeting, people were shouting out what the believe are valid points, but in the end, no one heard it, and if they did, no one other than the person(s) shouting cared.

    Well sure, spirited is fine and productive when the issues are permitted to be addressed and when questions are permitted to be answered, as was the case with the Cardin town hall. The Castor meeting was a lesson on how to accomplish nothing. One thing I have learned in my 34-years is this: If it were so easy for people to sit down and have a civil discussion, the world would not be in the state it currently is. TRAP and Galen are destined to do this dance (Just an example using TRAP and Galen... not an intentional shot) for a long time to come.

    I have taken plenty of public speaking / debate classes and one thing was universal -- when you resort to insults, you've lost the argument.

    Take a look at this title of this thread.

    It doesnt even cross the mind of liberals that people will actually protest THEM so they must be idiots, mobs, etc. In their self-enlightened minds the possibility of legit outrage against Obama doesnt even register.

    "Obama is a Socialist!!!!! He wants to take my medicare away!"

    "i don't want my country to become Russia!"

    nuf said...they are idiots that just lost the chance for guaranteed healthcare because the corporate spin machine just tooled them. Plain and simple..can't imagine any other way of looking at it.

    and more idiots;

    PHOENIX – About a dozen people carrying guns, including one with a military-style rifle, milled among protesters outside the convention center where President Barack Obama was giving a speech Monday — the latest incident in which protesters have openly displayed firearms near the president

    really rifles??? really??? their self-enlightened minds the possibility of legit outrage against Obama doesnt even register

    Explain to me the rational of bringing rifles to a speech by the Presidnt of the United States? Seriously if you even defend this you are seriously disturbed.
