Well congrats to all the conservatives in District 9. You made a big splash at the Town Hall Meeting with Steve Cohen today. You and the several dozen people from out of town who shouted down the speakers and stepped all over the First Amendment rights of the constituents. Good job. You successfully destroyed the ability of your neighbors to ask questions and hear the answers. Oh and you were helped by people who drove in from Nevada, California, Atlanta, Desoto County Mississippi, and Alabama. People who are not residents in this district and came here specifically to help you squash your neighbors ability to have a meeting with their elected representative.
I don't disagree with your general view. However I always find it interesting that folks on the left side of center have not a care in the world about shouting down conservatives and it is just people exercising there right to protest and free speech. When conservatives do a little "community organization" the dems get all up in arms.
I for one would love to have a civil discussion. Lets discuss the Whitehouse "fishy" email. Lets discuss how Obama says he's not for a single payer system, except to the AFLCIO. Lets discuss how there is no tort reform, no effort to breakdown the impact of cross state insurance regulation. Lets discuss how medicare PRESENTLY says getting a new battery for a pace maker is "elective".
I didn't vote for Obama but I sure as hell didn't vote for Nancy Pelosi. Obama's biggest political problem is his inability or desire to stand up to the far left.
Here is a quote from your article.
"As the meeting wore toward its close, there were even moments of general agreement, as when one questioner wondered about the prospect of converting The Pyramid, a nearby structure which continues to be unused, into a facility to be administered by the Smithsonian. The crowd murmured its approval, no one seeming to mind the suggestion of “government” administration."
FYI the Smithsonian is NOT a goverment entity. It is a private organization that was established by an act of congress. This is directly from the Smithsonian's web page.
an Act of Congress signed by President James K. Polk on Aug. 10, 1846, established the Smithsonian Institution as a trust to be administered by a Board of Regents and a Secretary of the Smithsonian.
Love your level of research dude!! Typical of the Flyer. Lets see I took all of 17 seconds and a google search.
