Okay, I can't get the image to post but the sign says "Bury Obamacare with Kennedy".

Seriously, this is wacked. The 9/12 March in Washington brought out the best of the best of the worst, baby. I would raise a sign with them if this was about a war Obama started but golly, no, it's about healthcare.

HEALTHCARE and there's a guy holding a sign that says "WATERBOARD OBAMA... see what he knows..."

Totally and completely insane.

Scary stuff. The guy with the gun sign doesn't seem to fit in though. His statement doesn't scream "I'm an ignorant douchebag" as much as the others.

How is a new era of McCarthyism a good thing in anyone's book?

Republitards on parade!


To me, it still remains unclear what everyone is protesting.
Healthcare? Loss of Freedoms?
Marxism? Socialism? Communism? Fascism?
Not having waterboarded Obama?
Racism? Muslims? Illegal Aliens?

Yikes! If we currently blacklisted actors with Obama (read: obviously Marxist, Socialist, Communist, AND Fascist Rolling Eyes) sympathies, Hollywood movies would suck for the next 20 years.

Heard about the protest yesterday in DC. Why is it that they're so upset about government spending NOW, and weren't when the Bush administration (and the Republican Congress) was spending money all over the place?

As to health care, we know that the protestors don't want what Obama proposes, but what's THEIR solution? Do they realize that their money is going to go to the insurance and health care system in one way or the other, directly or indirectly? Having your money extracted from you by "private" business is no better than by the government.

Oh, I dunno, maybe because Obama has already managed to quadruple the deficit that GWB needed 8 years to pile up, in just a few months?

so it was $10,566,146,196,490.58 in November 2008 and it's $11,792,615,473,271.79 as of today?

How do you figure 'quadruple'?

sadly Lara, the debt and the deficit are two different things.

but 1/2 of the increase in the deficit since Obama took office was spending mandated during the Bush administration. And another big chunk was caused by reduced revenues due to "downsizing" which is also tied directly to Bush policies.

The current contractor can't be blamed for the previous contractor's shoddy work and deliberate undermining.
Bush draped a flag around the site and branded anyone who dared to question the quality of his work as unpatriotic and unamerican as his administration chipped away at the foundation.
Obama's administration is working hard to shore the structure and make fundamental repairs while preserving the aesthetics of the edifice. It can't happen with the wave of a wand and there are many obstacles planted (some of them deliberately and strategically placed) in his path - and a couple IEDs to boot.

Embarassed I know there's a difference but I was cutting & pasting like a little troll before I totally absorbed the info.

Somebody's been reading the Gateway Pundit, Kar!

Let's hope the Chinese don't call in our debt before we get into the black again.

Whereas the supporters of the community organizer brand anyone who dares question him "racist".

Hmmm. Obama supports extending Patriot Act provisions: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090915/ap_on_go_ca_st_pe/us_patriot_act There's a surprise.
