yup. its bull**** how they blatantly control media so that people will never hear about it, or it will be dumbed down to say all these people are radicals. Do people know why we revolted and left england in the first place 200 years ago??? Not because of the king, it was because of his parlor making all the bull**** laws and doing things that were ridiculous.
When did it become okay to have CZARS in America.
My great grandfather passed away early yesterday morning, Jesus bless his soul....but guess what I'm happy he went now. Before he gets neglected in the new AWESOME healthcare system.
In less seriousnes...I hope Chuck Norris roundhouse kicks Obama, Pelosi, Geithner and the rest of those clowns in the face.

Recent in the timeline of our country but not so much when people try and say that Obama was somehow the creator. Been around for a couple of decades.

yeah, but Reagan only had 1 if I recall correctly, Obama doubled the number that Bush had

Nothing like the power of the executive branch gaining more and more power without being vetted by congress. No matter who it is under, dems, pubs, indys... Czars are unconstitutional... bottom line.

When a politician guarantees a bill will pass before it is written... you might be close to tyranny...

Wilson should not have apologized.Obama spent half his speech up to that point calling the reps. liers then dems. get upset when someone returns the favor.And Obama was lieing. Even the congressional research service said this bill could allow illegals to be covered. I was talking to a guy about this situation and he said," this has never happened before.Reps should be more civil".I asked him if he knew dems booed Bush when he gave his speech or that 2 dems had stood on the floor of the house and called Bush a lier.He said," well he was". How do you argue with someone who doesn't even know they just destroyed their own arguement about civility.I just laughed and walked away.

Bush is irrelevant. This is another game of we can but you can't which both parties play. They all feign horror at actions taken by the other side which they themselves have done in the past. It's all bull****, it's all a distraction.
The only thing relevant to Joe Wilson and the current round of BS is that he screwed up, technically breaking house rules, but more to the point he gave liberals a focus point. Either here or elsewhere, during the campaign I said Obama lived in the typical liberal echo chamber and that as a result you'd see the typical liberal smears of 'racist' and what not thrown around, but because they were directed at amorphous groups like anti Obama voters in general or people opposed to this or that policy of his, or critical of this or that association of his, it would be largely ineffective, and liberals would be shocked. Which has been the case up until now.
A personal insult needs a person for it to be directed toward in order to have any effect. Joe Wilson in interrupting Obama and calling him a liar, correct or incorrect, gave the Dems that person. A southern white male who defended Strom in the past. Some independents may care, I doubt many Republicans do, but Wilson just energized the Democrat base by giving them a new person to hate. A big advantage the Republicans have had as of late is the lack of a focus for Democrat ire and slurs, which is why the Dems were so busy trying to keep Cheney and Bush as an issue with potential investigations and what not while slurring random anonymous grandmothers and grandfather at townhall meetings. They just lost that advantage to a degree because Wilson, with his poor timing and context, put a face to the opposition.

lets face it, both sides are full of sh!t and try their darnedest to pass their agenda along at the expense of the average person. Neither side truly gives a rat ass about anyone who disagrees with them. They will just use whatever tactic they can to demorialize and demean. None of this will change folks, and the constant b!tching about it wont do diddly, except make a change every 4 years, and boy that is always helpful

Back on topic:
The Senate has clearly admitted Joe Wilson's message was correct (regardless of how inappropriately timed it might have been). Twice the dems have shot down provisions to ensure illegal aliens are not covered by the public option, and now they are suddenly backing it. Of course the media will not cover this change of direction, and will continue to demonize the poor-mannered Wilson as a representative of the racist radical right (soon to be wearing white hoods and proclaiming themselves the RRR, of course).
But make no mistake about it, BO plans to fulfill his campaign promise to give amnesty to the estimated ~20 million illegals in the country, making this argument over alien insurance coverage irrelevant. First healthcare, then Card Check (unionization of all industries), followed by amnesty are his "must pass" initiatives to gain a critical mass of American entitlement. He has explained this agenda from the beginning of his campaign trail.

I am sure many here will shout and scream for "revolution", but would never do it, as they realize their lives truly are not that terrible. Once the public sentiment gets bad enough, we will be placated by lowering gas prices a bit, or further troop withdrawl, or whatever will appease the blind masses.
We must face it, we are stuck, and it is our own fault
