    Rasmussen Reports ^ | August 7, 2009
    Forty-one percent (41%) of U.S. voters have a favorable opinion of the people opposing health care reform at town hall meetings now being conducted by members of Congress, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. But 35% view the protesters unfavorably. Twenty-three percent (23%) are not sure what they think of them. Given the partisan anger prompted by the town hall meetings, it’s not surprising to see a similar divide in the survey. Fifty-five percent (55%) of Democrats have an unfavorable view of those opposing the health care reform plan proposed by President Obama and the leaders of...

    Rep. Steve Kagen (D-WI) faced a “heated” discussion about health care at a town hall meeting yesterday, with people in the crowd who were heckling, interrupting, and filibustering him. One vocal attendee was a woman named Heather Blish, who identified herself as “just a mom from a few blocks away” and “not affiliated with any political party.” When interviewed by the local NBC affiliate, Blish insisted she was not a member of the Republican Party. “I left the party,” she said. Blish’s statements, however, are distortions.

    Friday, August 7, 2009 | Kristinn has a great photo sequence of a woman slapping a man in the face at yesterday's explosive town hall meeting in Tampa held by Rep. Kathy Castor and the goons from SEIU and Obama's Organizing for America.What the Tribune failed to disclose was the fact that the woman doing the slapping is a local Democratic party official, specifically the treasurer of the East Hillsborough County Democratic Party Club.In the eight-photo sequence, two men are seen arguing face to face, with one man wagging his finger in the face of the other. A woman standing behind the finger-wagger reaches around...

    I have been periodically posting emails I get from, as I am on their mailing list. I share them with my FReeper friends because I am sure you will find them as enlightening as I do. Notice that the last paragraph states: "This month could decide the future of health care and clean energy in America...". I posted another email a few weeks ago that featured an offer for pre-orders for the latest Shepard Fairey poster of windmills because September was going to be the big push for "clean energy". This was set to kick-off before the Obama...
