Be Careful Who You Follow.

I see where two of the more fringe characters in the local Tea Party movement were organizing a bus trip to D.C this past week to "Surround the Capital".

God bless them, Sue Ward and Lyn Bing bring their own brand of crazy to the Valley. In their words:
The rally will begin at noon when we join fellow patriots from around the country to surround the capitol and protest Congress' corrupt takeover.

"Corrupt takeover"? It was an election, or two really. One in 2006, another in 2008. We elected the President on a campaign promise of Health Care Reform. That's how democracies work ladies. You don't have to like it but you don't get to call it a "corrupt takeover", it was the Will of the People. America won, you lost.

You aren't "patriots", you are ignorant, angry rabblerousers. Big difference.

Now quit insulting your neighbors.

Washington (CNN) - Civil rights icon and veteran Rep. John Lewis, D-Georgia, said anti-health care bill protesters Saturday repeatedly yelled the "N" word at him as he left a heath care meeting and walked to the Capitol.

"I haven't seen heard anything like this in more than 40 years, maybe 45." Lewis said. "Since the march from Selma to Montgomery really."

"Yeah, but it's okay," Lewis added. "I've faced this before. So, it reminded me of the 60's. There's a lot of downright hate and anger and people are just being downright mean."

The incident was confirmed by Rep. Andre Carson, D-Indiana, who was walking with Lewis at the time. Protesters were yelling, "'kill the bill, kill the bill' and the 'N' word several times," Carson said.

We don't live in a democracy, buddy. They are supposed to represent US in their service to us.

Funny how none of the name calling or spitting was caught on someone's cellphone...gimme a break.
