All right. Now I’m mad. Must…keep…calm….must … keep… calm.
Apparently, some old woman brought a sign of Obama with a Hitler mustache to a meeting? Can’t she get this straight? If she want to call Obama a communist, it should be a Stalin mustache, or a little Lenin goatee!
But Hitler? I hate to be picky, but she’s got the wrong guy. All these people screaming about how they don’t want government control or a restriction of their liberties. Does anybody remember the Patriot Act??? Anybody?
If Bush were still president and Cheney were still president, and somebody had shown up at a Town Hall meeting with a Hitler mustache on Bush, they’d still be in Guantanamo!!!! And bring a GUN to a Bush Rally? Are you kidding me????!!!! Guantanamo’s not good enough. Go to Abu Ghraib, you terrorist traitor! (Does anybody care that the Patriot Act meant they could look at our library records? Doesn’t THAT seem a bit more reasonable to worry about than health insurance?)
To hell with the right to bear arms, what about the right to think or speak, the right not to be tortured?
And they’re worried about OBAMA’S spending??? Where were they when George W spent all of our money on an illegal war, based on bad information. Does anybody remember Clinton’s surplus? Bush had it for 9 months and 11 days before he started spending like an addict, and destroyed the economy?
So NOW these people worry about the deficit? Sorry, folks, but the horse is already out of the barn, across the field, and put rockets on its feet.
I worry about constitutional rights, too. I worry about the economy, too. But for 8 years, not a peep out out of the American public and if it happened, we got called “un-patriotic”, “un-American” and told to shut up.
How come it’s “democracy” now when it was “liberal terrorism” then? Remember Rush Limbaugh’s term “Feminazi”? How is it possible that it’s “Nazi-ism” to want fair treatment and not Nazi-ism to bring a gun to a meeting?
I can’t tell if this is misdirected anger at Bush taken out on Obama or if the abusers of the country for the past 8 years are afraid to lose their grip and trying to maintain control/power by yelling even louder and threatening more.
BTW, for people who simply want to slow down the process of healthcare reform until we see what it is we’re signing, I’m totally cool with that. I just wish we’d gotten practice long before this with the Patriot Act 8 years ago.
OK, I feel better now.
