Interesting.

Five of the six listed in Illinois are in predominantly black districts. I know, because I'm familiar with each location. Here's the breakdown, I wonder if anyone else is doing analysis of these "town halls" to see if the Democrats are trying to rig the crowds in their favor:

The first "rally" is on August 15th and is actually a mini Pro-Obamacare march kicking off in the heart of Danny Davis' (D. IL) district, which is overwhelmingly black.

The second rally being held later that day again by Danny Davis (D. IL) and is being held in a park in the center of his district, which is again overwhelmingly black.

The third rally is being held on 8/18 by Jesse Jackson Jr. at"Sheldon Heights Church of Christ" .. this is a large, predominantly black church on Chicago's south side. A political rally at a black church? I'm shocked .. SHOCKED I tell you! Where's the IRS and why aren't they yanking their tax exempt status?

The fourth "rally" is on 8.22 being held at "Malcolm X College" on Chicago's near South Side by Danny Davis (again.) Surprise, it's in a overwhelmingly black neighborhood (the train I take to work passes right by this "college" and through the neighborhood which looks like a war zone.)

A fifth rally, again held by Danny Davis is in the 2nd Baptist Church of Maywood, which is more than 90% black. I used to have to drive through this neighborhood to get to/from where I worked while in college and was once mugged there sitting at a stop light. (That was in 1985) Again, where is the IRS and why isn't this "Church's" tax exempt status being yanked?

The final, sixth rally is being held in Skokie, Illinois the home of rabid pro-government run health care proponent Jan Shakowsky (D. IL) at a local high school. This is the *only* town hall that is not located in a predominantly black neighborhood, but is however considered one of the most liberal Congressional districts in Illinois.

Now, I know each of the neighborhoods that these "town halls" are being held in as I've been through each and every one of them. I've also looked at the Congressional maps and seen the racial makeups of each district. My observations here are based in pure FACT.

Now the question is, is anyone else seeing a similar pattern for these so-called "town halls" that are being planned across the country?

Final question: should this be it's own thread? I'm really wondering what kind of pattern is emerging here. I think the Democrats are deliberately trying to stack the deck in their favor in planning these events so they can label any 'protesters' as illegitimate out-of-district protesters.

Reserve Louisiana is 50+% black.

I heard the same comments from some friends.

But guess what, it didn’t work for them here.

I guess it is a question of motivation.

They are happy with his proposals and expect them to happen. We are not.
