  • just go to drudge report, they are psoting them there. Of course the dems attempt at damage control is trying to blame the tea party patriots for it. They just don't get it.

  • Funny - the liberals try to convince us that spending is democracy! Of course it is. They didn't want the UHB vote to be delayed. They didn't want the representatives going home and actually seeing and listening to their constituents. They would find out how the country actually feels. This is how this whole thing is suppose to work. We elect someone to represent us because all of us can't go to Washington to speak. These people are shouting because they don't feel that they are being listened to by the government. It the representatives voted the will of the people (democracy) the spending won't happen (liberal socialism). It's the 1st Amendment in action. It's beautiful!

  • Wow, no money was spent AT ALL during 2000-2008..That Obama sure blew through that surplus and put us into two neverending and expensive wars. You all act like everything was perfect during the Bush admin. It was not. Obama is far from perfect, but do you all have anything else to do besides b!tch about him day in and day out? I did not vote for him, but even I do not sit around and bash him with post upon post upon post and make up sh!t.

  • The problem is they aren't letting the other people in these towns ask questuions. I understand they want to protest and be heard, but the other people have a right to be heard as well...

    If he weren't trying so hard to destroy this country....I'd ignore him, and wouldn't bother posting about his agenda. However, I happen to LOVE my country, and I would like for future generations to LOVE it too....this is why I do what I can to fight it...and you should to!!! :o)
