This article certainly shoots down all the lies about who the Americans are that are trying to save us from Obamas health care fraud. Blind Obedience to Authority is not healthy, whether it be Democrats or Republicans. Believing everything/anything the bought off media spews out is just as bad. WAKEUP people, we are being lied to every day, every hour every minute. Open your eyes, Wall Street is a fraud, the bankers are frauds, the stimulus scam is downright Racketeering and Congress and the White House are 99% Traitors. We are not near the bottom of a recession. We are at the beginning of a Depression like no other, period. Remember Bush kept saying that we were fine economically, and said "go shopping". He lied to us then and Obama is lying to us now. The Outstanding Public Debt as of 12 Aug 2009 at 07:21:45 AM GMT is: $11,667,357,728,169.46.The estimated population of the United States is 306,719,002
so each citizen's share of this debt is $38,039.24.
The National Debt has continued to increase an average of
$3.89 billion per day since September 28, 2007! Where is Obama going to get the money for Obamacare? The country is bankrupt but were are told to believe that the economy is on it's way up, NOT.
We make nothing here in the USA, everything is made in China. Social Security is history. Whats left of our pensions will soon be history. All BY DESIGN. Do you think for one moment that the housing bubble was anything but planned? Guess what, the Federal Reserve Bank is NOT part of the government, period. The government has NO authority over the "FED". Can not adit their books, can not do anything. We were sold out many years ago and the filthy rich keep getting filthier and we get to pay for it all as our standard of living is headed down the toilet. I could go on about this for ever because there is no end to the scam that we are subjected to.
The USA is destined for third world poverty. Why do you think we have open borders when there are alledgedly so many "terrorist" wanting to to kill us. What a JOKE!!! The borders are open so as to spread the poverty to the USA while the government gains more controll by spreading FEAR. The real terrorist is the US Government. Everything I claim here is fact and the evidence that proves this exists. What happened to common sense?
ABC Reports: It's Real People, REAL Mad
ABC News seemed to file a report that refutes the left wing mantra that all the outrage over Obamacare is fake, manufactured, or invented by a "Brooks Brothers rent-a-mob" with coverage of the local folks that confronted Blue Dog Democrat Frank Kratovil (D, Maryland) as he attempted to avoid a townhall meeting on his recess.
Kratovil employed the Democrat's newest form of avoidance by trying to set up one-on-one meetings with his constituents instead of the regular townhall styled meeting and in that way avoid the confrontations that whip up crowds.
The Democrats are hoping that the less volatile way to meet the folks back home will paper over the outrage so widely felt by voters. They also realize that their members returning home won't have to see as many of those voters with time consuming one-on-one sessions instead of larger townhall meetings.
It's all just a sneaky Democratic trick to keep their members from being forced to deal with the voters.
The kinder gentler meeting did not work for Kratovil, though, as more and more angry residents showed up forcing him to meet them all at once and boy did they give him an earful.
Kratovil is one of those Blue Dogs that barely beat out a Republican last election and if this is an indication, many residents of Eastern Maryland are regretting having pulled the Democrat lever.
In any case, an interesting aspect of this report is that ABC didn't find any "fake" protesters but found instead that all the angry attendees were actual voters that actually lived in the Congressman's district.
There were no lobbyist-funded buses in the parking lot of Mardela Middle and High School on Tuesday evening, and the hundreds of Eastern Maryland residents who packed the school's auditorium loudly refuted the notion that their anger over the Democrats' health care reform plans is "manufactured."
This is, of course, the facts on the ground at every townhall. There are no "manufactured protests." It is real citizens that are real angry at Obama's socialist policies.

President of Some of the People

The Democrats introduced Barack Obama to the nation and the world at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. He gave a keynote address in which he said "we are more than a collection of red states and blue states we are the United States of America."
With this line, Barack Obama sold himself to the Democratic base who were in a sort of political wasteland after a hard-fought election in 2000. He seemed like a true uniter, someone who could win the hearts and minds of Democrats, independents, and moderate Republicans. Since coming into office, however, he has proven that this image of Barack Obama the uniter and the post-partisan was an abject fraud. Over the past few months, he has shown a propensity to antagonize those with the effrontery to oppose his policies. Obama's hostility has reached a boiling point over the past few weeks and finally culminated in his comments on Friday where he essentially told those who oppose his radical takeover of health care to shut their mouths.
His intent is clear: the real Barack Obama isn't interested in being president of the United States; he wants to be president of an exclusive group of Americans made up of sycophants who parrot the party line.
Americans who normally minded their own business, lived their lives, went to work, raised their kids, and planned for retirement are dismayed at the details that are coming out of the enormously complex health care bills that are working their way through Congress. They're learning that HR 3200 stipulates  that, after the first year that the new health care laws are enacted, their private health insurance companies won't be allowed to enroll any new customers , yet they won't be able to change any terms of its conditions  for their current customers.
The obvious effect of such a law is that it would put insurance companies out of business very quickly. Also, people are learning that companies that offer health insurance will be required to ensure that their plans match the government's plan  within five years. They are learning that when they reach their sunset years they will be required to go their doctors for "end of life" counseling every five years . Having been made aware of some of these little-known details, the American people are doing what they ought to as responsible members of a representative republic. They are contacting their elected representatives and telling them to vote against the nationalization of health care.
However, some elected representatives have not just been unresponsive to the concerns of their constituents; they've been downright hostile to them. The American people who elected these men and women to represent their interests in Washington are becoming increasingly frustrated. They are expressing that frustration at various town hall meetings with their representatives, yet these oft-insulated politicians simply don't know what to do in response to their constituents' outrage.
Instead of engaging them and listening to their concerns, they have responded by hiding from them, holding town halls over the telephone, or limiting the public's access to their public meetings. Leading the charge against the people is their own president, who seems to have decided he does not want to to be the leader of all Americans, only his idolaters. Yet he demands those same Americans who are unworthy of his attention to pay for his agenda. This goes beyond the typical arrogance we have come to expect from this administration; it is taking the form of blatant contempt for the American people.
President Obama has resorted to Chicago-style brass knuckle politics of intimidation by declaring war on those who refuse to assimilate. First, he publicly smeared and insulted them like he did Sergeant Crowley by calling them "angry mobs" and their protests "manufactured." At a political rally in Virginia last Friday, he referred to those who opposed his plans as the "folks who created the mess" and said that they shouldn't "do a lot of talking ."
Then, in an act of blatant hypocrisy, he ordered up his own organized army of union members and Democrats to combat those citizens who were doing nothing more than legally expressing their views about the health care bills. Obama gave his troops their marching orders: "punch back twice as hard " at their opponents. Presumably that language was meant to be metaphorical, but it is indicative of a hostility on the part of the White House toward fellow Americans that is wholly unacceptable and unbecoming in their chief executive.
It seems, though, that some of Obama's supporters in Service Employees International Union (SEIU) took that order literally when they physically assaulted a peaceful protester in St. Louis  and put him in the hospital. What is especially disturbing is that the day after the attack, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius held a conference call  with members of SEIU. She called them  her "brothers and sisters," praised their actions, and told them to "keep doing what you're doing." But perhaps Obama's greatest indignity is his insidious snitch program that encourages his supporters to report their neighbors, family members, and friends when they publicly, whether through blog posts, emails, or in casual conversation, dare to dissent from the Obama party line on health care.
The president's antics are an affront to the office and reduce him to nothing more than a bellicose, sleazy union boss who works only to advance the interests of his select members. And, sadly, just as Democratic-backed unions bankrupted Chrysler and GM, Obama and his union minions will, with their health care plan, end up bankrupting the nation.
