Health care reform [12 Aug 2009|10:11am]
How is it that the loonies are completely controlling this debate?

Is anybody in this country who makes less than $50K actually against health care reform?

Actually, scratch that, is anybody in this country who has ever dealt with the US health care system at all against health care reform?

How do they find these people who are willing to stand up and scream at the top of their lungs against a public option?

If Obama has an overwhelming mandate (and judging by the fact that Congress, Senate, and White House are all democratic, I would argue he does) then where are all his supporters?

Are we so inept that we can't counteract these fake protestors getting stirred up by teabaggerUSA.com or whatever right wing agitprop site de jour?

Or maybe Rahm Emm's right and all this frothing at the mouth is actually making the protestors look bad and Obama's proposal look good

But nobody ever went broke underestimating the gullibility and ignorance of the American public...

sincerely, west coast elitist liberal

p.s. "elite" is a good thing, goddammit.

All-video sites annoy me [12 Aug 2009|04:59pm]
This site refutes the various lies being spread by opponents of health care reform:

All well and good, but give me text for crissakes!

I don't have time to sit through a bunch of talking heads

If you can, please take a few minutes to support Obama's plan...

You can donate money, write a letter to the editor, or 'tweet'

Not sure if any of these compare to being a blithering idiot who shouts down a senator on Fox News. I guess, go to a town hall if you can.
