The next event will be held shortly after the government goes against the polling that shows the wishes of the American people and ram through a piece of cr@p legislation regardless of what the majority wants when it comes to a health care bill... that's when the next event will start to be organized...
Personally, and there are a lot of us out there, we don't trust anything coming from the government. PERIOD. And it's not a democrat thing and it's not an Obama thing. IT'S A PAST GOVERNMENT ACTIONS THING.
And when I speak of "government", I'm talking about the House of Representative, the Senate, and the Executive Branch and both political parties...
The government has done very little to sway me that things will be different this time!
I've seen "Bridges to Nowhere" from the past administration, to the government adding 3 more than requested by the Air Force of G5 Corporate Jets for Congress to use for travels because we as taxpayers, we can afford for our "representatives" ability to just spend, spend, spend!
The government couldn't run the House Bank or the House Post Office without scandal. They couldn't run the cafeteria and had to have "professionals" take over. They recently opened a visitors center that was over budget and past due of its opening day.
We had a senator say that they should fix Social Security like they did when they fixed it ten years ago. Think about that for a second... If it was "fixed" ten years ago, then why does it need fixing now?! Probably because it was never fixed?!
We have the House Leader who likes protesters when they "agitate" George Bush at his home in Crawford concerning the Iraq war, but when others gather to "agitate" the democrats and Obama and health care, she labels us 'Un-American' and a mob! And then decries the level of rhetoric and possibility of violence, when she started the name calling! A hell of a nerve. Especially when the violence thus far has been from astro turfing Obama SEIU union goons attacking a vendor at a protest and at another protest a Pro-Obama supporter bites off the finger of an elderly man exercising his Constitutional rights.
We have Obama saying in a speech that after the August recess, anyone wishing clarification of "his plan", that he will go over it "line by line". It's on video! When several republican lawmakers sent him a letter taking him up on his offer, guess what... No return phone calls to set up a time, no letter, no e-mail, no text message from the Obama "Blackberry One"... zip, nada, nothing, the big goose egg... If he doesn't reply soon, maybe it is time to bring back the phrase, "You Lie"! Of course like so many other things, Obama will deny what one can see coming from his mouth that is video taped for all of posterity and Obama will simply say that was then, this is now, my positions have evolved... from several weeks ago???
And those that talk about the "civilized countries" that have government health insurance, I would like to know how much is their citizenry taxed for that honor and also, how much does their country spend in relation to their GDP regarding worldwide commitments when it comes to their military? Or maybe the next major tsunami that affects the peoples of 10 or 11 countries, God forbid, we'll let someone else take all the food, medicines and supplies donated and let them drop it off via military ships and air drops
I'm not in disagreement that health care needs reform but not some 1100 page babble filled with lawyer speak that like Medicare, will require the purchase of the $8000 computer or the $500 wheelchair van because it is authorized!
Glad those with problems are finding aid with the iPhone and "there's an app for that" app store.
