Get d'Clu

Get a clue & wake up! The best way to lead a nation astray of its values is to keep it ignorant of its history.

Gag Me

The First Amendment to the US Constitution allows the freedom of speech (and I would say with some civility), yet our elected leaders and non-representing representatives are not allowing us to question them, their policies or affiliations.  Somehow feels like a gag order to me.  Worse yet, Obama’s partners in crime, Pelosi & Hoyer, not only are calling those who attend the town halls “Nazis” (yes, did you hear that?!), but she wrote an Op-Ed piece in USA Today calling them un-American (for standing up and questioning their reps?!) and accusing them of doing what the Democrats themselves are doing — lying and strong-arming their way through the meetings, busing in union members to harrass those who might disagree with the legislation.  It all comes straight from Saul Alinsky’s socialist handbook and it’s dirty tricks as usual.

Democrats, Media Distorting Town Hall Facts
by James Hirsen
Aug 10, 2009
Democrats, Republicans, Independents, and others who express concern about the socialization of our healthcare system are getting slimed. Those who speak out at Town Hall meetings are being painted as “manufactured protesters.”
“Now we see the president, Dem Party, and Machiavellian media revving up their propaganda engines to push an unsuspecting public into believing that town hall meetings are staged, rent-a-mobs are bullying congressional members, and insurance companies are choreographing the entire scenario.”
“But the same politicians and media that are defaming citizens for daring to ask questions were sickeningly silent when members of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, a.k.a. ACORN, really did fabricate protests at the homes of AIG executives who received bonuses following the government approved TARP bailouts.”

Democratic lawmakers are smearing anyone who dares to question Obamacare as “brownshirts,” “gangsters,” or domestic terrorists like Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.
