    "WASHINGTON — A sea of protesters filled the west lawn of the Capitol and spilled onto the National Mall on Saturday in the largest rally against President Obama since he took office, a culmination of a summer-long season of protests that began with opposition to a health care overhaul and grew into a broader dissatisfaction with government. "

    In the meantime, Obama was in Minnesota talking about healthcare. As if the American people don't already know his agenda on healthcare.

    We're not, all the wailing and gnashing of teeth to the contrary.

    No, we will retain our faceless, unaccountable plutocrats to run the show. Thank you for your concern.
     
  8. Much of this is the same lunatic "fringe" of the GOP that embraces the philosophy as John C. Calhoun - - - an advocate of slavery and racism, limited government, nullification, and state's rights that includes seceding from the Union.

    How grand.

    the far left lunatics think that the anti bush vote was really a a pro lefty lunatic vote. So now that tax payers are showing who is really in charge they are attempting to insult tax payers. A strategy sure to backfire.
