We’ll take care of you later

Senator Max Baucus (D-Montana) might think it is funny to joke about how many police officers it will take to ensure the totalitarian status quo over health care in the United States, but I for one think it is disgusting. His weak-lipped platitudes about respecting the opinions of those he betrays for corporate blood money is insulting to those of us who know who his real masters are.

In order to ensure that Americans have second-rate health care, and will be forced into bankruptcy in order to receive it, he is fully prepared to arrest anyone who dares to ask that their contrary views be seriously debated. The land of the free and home of the brave, indeed.

The American public, we the people, are predominantly in favor of publicly financed health care. You, our servants, refuse to hear our demands. You, our servants, refuse to even permit our ideas to be seriously debated in the halls of OUR government. Obviously, there is no shame in your power-hungry world or you would surely know the wages of your sins.

Either allow the public's will to be done, or answer to them during the next primary season, the choice is yours. You can be sure that the video of any of you laughing at Baucus’ joke of turning the U.S. into a gulag state for the benefit of your corporate masters will be replayed in the form of political ads for your opponents. You better believe that we will empty our pockets, and donate every spare second of our time, to ensure that ALL of you who oppose the will of the people are forced from OUR houses of government in order that the well-being of the American people can be once again faithfully represented.

Jeremy Wilburn,

"ACLU isn't that a liberal organization?"

Depends... these days the GOP thinks that anything left of Ann Coulter is liberal. Funny story though... one day at work one of my right wing co-workers said she hated the ACLU. I asked he if she even knew who the ACLU was. "Of course I do", she replied indignantly, "It's the Anti Christian Liberal Union". Sad thing was, she was dead serious. That's the Tennessee edjumacation system at work....

comparing Obama to al Qaida is more relevant because al Qaida is still around, unlike the Nazi's. also, it plays off the Muslim fear thing because of our president's last night. surely you're not that blind.

Blanket,

As there were ties to the Kennedy clan and the mafia. So what? Are you saying we should suspect Teddy Kennedy of still being in bed with them? I don't buy that.
