Let the Shouting Stop and the Health Care Relief Begin

Comment to this blog posted at the end:
Isn't this outrageous shouting campaign the ultimate right wing irony? These recent "drown you out rather than talk", orchestrated demonstrations targeted at Democratic Congressional town hall meetings for the purpose of opposing health care reform, are acts of political desperation. The right wing is fabricating lies about your grandmother's right to hospice care, while throwing in evil and wrong minded references to Nazi Germany, just to get attention, like a child having a tantrum.

Radical right wingers who oppose health care reform are the first ones to point fingers at left wing liberals who acted out against the War in Iraq. Now, the shoe is on the right wings' foot. How dare they steal the liberal's techniques? They are imitating, in lemming-like droves, the progressive demonstrations they abhor in liberal activism.

This is the ultimate hypocrisy. Right wing nuts are throwing out deliberate misinformation for the sake of obstructing free speech for those who know better, derailing discussion and obstructing legitimate debate.

Right Wing nuts and Left Wing liberal nuts are falling out of the same tree when it comes shouting matches at public rallies, replacing civil discourse with ear piercing rhetoric.

If right wing shouters want to run our free government by noise levels, then we truly need a US Constitutional amendment to ban public debate exceeding ear damaging 100 decibels.

As for the Democratic Congress people exposed to this extremism, please hold your anger and just consider the source. It's of utmost importance for you to listen to reasonable debate while turning off the noise made soley for the sake of squelching the health care reform debate. Try using ear plugs.

Most important, stay the course and vote to support what's right for Americans who deserve 100 percent coverage and access to quality health care at affordable rates.

Call me if you need someone to shout louder than the crazy right wing obstructionists. Good luck.

Comment from Caroline Hartzler of Virginia:

Hi Julie,

I am appalled by all these ranting people. They haven't noticed that within the last 40 years the Republicans managed to strangle all efforts to improve their quality of life. These "conservatives" don't want big government but they certainly can't take care of themselves as they age. Those who stir this anger enjoy the "people power" they have unleashed; but, they do not reveal their own health insurance plan and how much they pay for it. Just like they don't reveal all the funding they receive from insurance companies and all other corporations liked to the medical industry.

They are screaming about socialistic medicine but they didn't notice that most of the large corporations have eliminated all the benefits from their pay packages and they have been left to fend for themselves.
Perhaps this is why corporate managers have larger salaries and bonuses than ever before.

And pray tell, these same ranting people have not heard about Advanced Medical Directives before??? Obviously, they aren't tuned to the level of sanity that has been advising us about the advantages of forethought.

Another topic dear to my heart-- gun control. It is so safe now in the U.S., that we should allow people to carry concealed weapons, even across state lines. It seems that no matter what the next newscast brings about random shootings, communities think it is happening far from them so there should be no gun control.

I become dismayed by the unhealthy American attitudes encouraged among all age groups. It is truly sad that the free American education promulgated through high school has not produced enquiring minds.
