Sher Zieve is part of a right-wing organization putting together stuff that makes Glen Beck look amateurish. And,"Rebecca, a resident of the Another Pleasanton neighborhood" lacks intelligent original thought, so she has to copy & paste someone else's commentary.

If you believe all this junk on President Obama, then where were you when we had President Bush and his administration attempts to slowly dismantle this democracy? His administration was more of threat to the United States.

DublinMike:
I see you follow your "bible" of Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" quite well. Which Alinsky "rule" is it again that states the importance of character assassination...especially when you cannot engage in a rational debate. It is people like you who are destroying America.

Dublin, but out. You're offering nothing to this issue with chatter about Bush. Curtain up on tonight's midnight Sunday theatre! Of course they don't really want you to see OR they would conduct OUR business during daylight hours. Senate will be voting at 1:00AM ...so it will read for history a Mon workday for Congres, tho they are trying to sneek it thru. Most have already admitted they have no idea what the 2,000 pages say...so they don't want you to witness have they have rammed this VERY EXPENSIVE program. Assorted cable networks this morning covered how costs will skyrocket & up taxes right down your street and mine ! You ALWAYS KNEW the $250k TAX was a LIE, right ?? Right now they are doing slight of hand with 'general fund' stuff...fully intending to make annual changes, tonight is fiction theatre...REALITY later.

Dorothy,

You really should note the main reason the vote took place at 1AM was because the Senate is trying to get this bill passed before Christmas, and the republicans in the senate insisted on having the entire set of amendments to the bill read into the record, which ended up delaying the entire process throughout the day. But sure, stick to your glen beck theories about this being sneaking a bill that has been debated in 5 different congressional committees over the course of nearly 10 months. It makes for much better copy.
