leftoverbacon on April 15, 2009 6:11 pm Really disappointing rally folks.

What was billed as a NON-partisan rally about excessive taxation and irresponsible government, turned out to be a rally around the GOP and Obama bashing.

I have little love for Obama and the fascist policies of Bush/Paulson that he is continuing, but this crowd was not at all open minded.

I was overwhelmed with GOP vitriol.

These corporate bailouts, where the private institutions get bailed out by the government and get to keep the profits, is FASCISM, not Socialism.

When I tried to make the point to a person with an anti-Obama sign that GWB STARTED the fascist bailouts, I was told to “get my own protest.”

When I tried to say that the Oil companies should pay for their protection forces, I was called a communist!

This was NOT an all-inclusive non-partisan protest like it was billed.

Very sad. This day makes me cry for America.

At least the folks on 4/11 were open to discussion and were interested in forming a coalition.

I must repeat. I do not support Socialism.

These bailouts are not socialism, The bailouts are FASCISM.

I will continue my efforts to educate the uniformed.

Jingoism will not set us free.

God bless the USA. We need it.

Rick

leftoverbacon on April 15, 2009 6:23 pm I must add that I was personally threatened on several occasions.

I was told to “find my own rally.”

I was asked where I attended college, and was ridiculed for my response.

This was by NO means an INCLUSIVE group.

Because I disagreed with some of the GOP talking points I was told that I was a member of ACORN!? WTF?

The vast majority of folks did not want to hear any criticism of the Republican party. Without the Republicans, the bailouts never would have happened. Where was the fiscal conservatism the past 8 years?

Is there no room for a middle ground in this country?

Does it always have to be me vs. you?

Don’t people realize that we had a revolution to throw off the oppression of the Oligarchy?

We’re becoming more and more like post-soviet russia, and it’s not Obamas fault. He’s just running with the ball that was passed to him.

Really, the Right needs to get back to its roots.

If you’re a billionaire, you’re not on this board and THOSE are the folks who are gaming the system.


Soros, Gecko, they’re the same to me. They do not have the interest of the everyman in their hearts.

Revolutions have started over smaller inequities.

American needs to wake the f up. Rush and the echo chamber cares not about your well being.

God bless us all. I hope you enjoy your Nation ID card. Terror Terror! TERROR!

leftoverbacon on April 15, 2009 7:15 pm Hey Brian,

I saw MANY signs that compared Obama to Stalin, and I received many personal threats because I wasn’t supporting the Brown Shirt program.

really really disappointed in this rally. Since I didn’t tow the party line 100% I was ostracized.

Again, I am neither a libtard, nor a wingnut, but today I, being of the middle ground, was not welcome.

Rick

Funny, I work with other professionals from India, S Korea, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Brazil and England, to name a few, for that very reason.

My advice. Stop hangin' around with whiners.

I don't know what you do, but you don't seem to have a whole lot of insight as to how currently the "free market" insurance companies work. You deny their collectivism, their role on the ban from state to state sales, you don't know that it's not a flat out ban, you ignore their denial of pre-existing conditions, and you don't seem to understand the difference between cosmetic procedures and emergency procedures. No whiners, just real insight of working on both sides of the insurance aisle.

Glenn Beck thinks President Obama is better for the country than John McCain would have been, he said in an interview with Katie Couric to air at CBSNews.com Tuesday evening.

"I think John McCain would have been worse for the country than Barack Obama," Beck told Couric in the debut episode of her new web show, @katiecouric.

Beck's comment came in response to Couric's question about Hillary Clinton, who Beck said he may have even voted for had she been the Democratic nominee against John McCain.

"I can't believe I'm saying this," Beck said, "I think I would have much preferred [Hillary Clinton] as president and may have voted for her against John McCain."

He described McCain as "this weird progressive like Theodore Roosevelt was."

The full interview airs at CBSNews.com Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET.

I don't trust that Glenn Beck-that must be part of some plot he's hatching I'll write it out on a whiteboard and get all hysterical...



Huffington Post

According to a new book, Barack and Michelle Obama's marriage was strained on the campaign trail because of all the women throwing themselves at the future president.

In "Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage," Christopher Andersen writes that women were constantly trying to attach themselves to Obama on the campaign trail.

After an appearance in Peoria, Illinois, the future president reportedly said as he got into his car, "Jesus, I wish they'd stop grabbing my ass."

Michelle Obama, writes Andersen, "was not amused" and thought her husband was "loving it." She "resorted to giving him the silent treatment."

The New York Daily News reported on the book on Sunday. Some more highlights: Michelle shot down the idea of Hillary Clinton for vice president, and she also convinced Barack to use the catchphrase "Yes We Can." (He thought it was "childish" and "corny.")

For the first time since he took office I can now say that I completely understand where the president is coming from. It really is just embarrassing to have women playing grab-ass with you every time you leave the house. But we cope.

I might think it but I certainly would never do it to a Presidential candidate (or in general). Those women have some cojones, or something. In my view it's not appropriate. But he couldn't read my thoughts so I could still think it-he is a sexy man. I guess this book also claims they would whisper things in his ear and stuff like that. Wow, that's aggressive.
