The House and Senate are, once again, on the brink of voting for the most massive healthcare overhaul in the history of this country, possibly the world. There has been a lot of misinformation, hate-filled speech and name calling associated with this massive overhaul. All you have to do is pick up a major newspaper or turn on the network news and you will hear it. And of course it is directed at those who oppose the overhaul. You’d never know that if you listen to the mainstream media. The liberal media wants you to think that the opposition to the bill is out there beating up peaceful protesters, carrying guns to Town Hall meetings and just being generally destructive.
Soccer moms have been called wild-eyed terrorists and senior citizens have been referred to as a rabble. But most disturbing of all, veterans returning from fighting in one of our two foreign wars have been called potential terrorists. What? People who love their country so much they are willing to risk life and limb to protect her are called unpatriotic. There is just no accounting for this behavior. No decent person disparages another person’s right to stand up for what that person believes.
Let’s take a minute to look at the gentleman that got beaten up for trying to sell signs at a protest rally. It wasn’t a conservative that beat him up, it was an SEIU thug. At a Town Hall rally that I attended in Arkadelphia there was a large contingent of people, They were very loud and often rude. They all had little id stickers on their shirts. Were they members of grass roots organizations that went there to support their side of the debate? NO. They were bussed in from Little Rock to make it look like the majority of people were in favor of the Healthcare overhaul. They failed miserably. Yet Nancy Pelosi called those of us who were protesting against the bill “Astroturf.” Meaning we were the artificial grassroots organizations. The thing that leaves me talking to myself sometimes is the fact that when the libs cry foul, it’s in response to the allegation that conservatives are doing just what the libs actually are doing.
You can tell that the conservatives and libs come from totally different worlds. If you want to see just how different the people that make up the opposing sides are, just compare these two pictures of the National Mall.
This is a picture of the National Mall taken on January 21, 2009, the day after almost two million people descended on the Mall to see the inauguration of Barack Obama. Of course there is no grass, it’s winter in DC, but it cost the taxpayers literally millions of dollars to clean up the mess the libs left.
This is a picture of the National Mall taken on September 13, 2009, the day after 1.2 million people marched on the mall for the 9/12 Tea Party. Of course there is grass, but where is the debris? This just shows that a million conservatives are just more respectful of our nation’s capitol than a million libs.
While you didn’t see the first picture on the mainstream media, there is no doubt in my mind that if the 9/12 Tea Party had left one third the mess that the people that turned out to see the inauguration did it would have dominated the press for days.
The far-left libs have no new ideas for America. All they can do is mock the efforts of those who want this country to prosper. They will attack us and then accuse us of personally attacking them. That’s okay. Let them ignore us. But someone might want to remind them, King George didn’t listen to us either.
