People should be angry at the WH and Congress for passing reform that bails out banks but not people. They have every right to be angry and have to push for financial reform so this mess doesn't repeat. But trying to defeat healthcare because you are angry at the president is like shooting yourself in the foot because you are angry at your revolver.

The lunatic fringe is at an all-time fever pitch frenzy with recruiting and spending money to buy weapons including semiautomatics and other assault weapons.

Perhaps in the future that cancer will self-destruct and we can go back to fixing broken healthcare, broken finance, broken climate policy, broken government.
Well given that people voted for Bush because he was "one of them", that is, ignorant, dogmatic, no speaking skills, no foresight or wisdom, greedy, cynical, banal, secretive and incompetent... I am not surprised the "stay in school, work hard" was met with anger.
