Obama & company are calling in their "troops"
Jawa Report ^ | August 5, 2009 | Stable Hand

Posted on 08/05/2009 11:30:44 AM PDT by La Lydia

President Barack Obama to me:

This is the moment our movement was built for. For one month, the fight for health insurance reform leaves the backrooms of Washington, D.C., and returns to communities across America. Throughout August, members of Congress are back home, where the hands they shake and the voices they hear will not belong to lobbyists, but to people like you.

Home is where we're strongest. We didn't win last year's election together at a committee hearing in D.C. We won it on the doorsteps and the phone lines, at the softball games and the town meetings, and in every part of this great country where people gather to talk about what matters most. And if you're willing to step up once again, that's exactly where we're going to win this historic campaign for the guaranteed, affordable health insurance that every American deserves.

There are those who profit from the status quo, or see this debate as a political game, and they will stop at nothing to block reform. They are filling the airwaves and the internet with outrageous falsehoods to scare people into opposing change. And some people, not surprisingly, are getting pretty nervous. So we've got to get out there, fight lies with truth, and set the record straight.[Fight the truth with lies is more like it...ed]

That's why Organizing for America is putting together thousands of events this month where you can reach out to neighbors, show your support, and make certain your members of Congress know that you're counting on them to act.

But these canvasses, town halls, and gatherings only make a difference if you turn up to knock on doors, share your views, and show your support. So here's what I need from you: Can you commit to join at least one event in your community this month?

In politics, there's a rule that says when you ask people to get involved, always tell them it'll be easy. Well, let's be honest here: Passing comprehensive health insurance reform will not be easy. Every President since Harry Truman has talked about it, and the most powerful and experienced lobbyists in Washington stand in the way.

But every day we don't act, Americans watch their premiums rise three times faster than wages, small businesses and families are pushed towards bankruptcy, and 14,000 people lose their coverage entirely. The cost of inaction is simply too much for the people of this nation to bear.

So yes, fixing this crisis will not be easy. Our opponents will attack us every day for daring to try. It will require time, and hard work, and there will be days when we don't know if we have anything more to give. But there comes a moment when we all have to choose between doing what's easy, and doing what's right.

This is one of those times. And moments like this are what this movement was built for. So, are you ready?...Let's seize this moment and win this historic victory for our economy, our health and our families. Thank you,

President Barack Obama

(Wonder how many Obamabots are left....)

Hey... Hey... Hey.... raising my hand to get the teacher’s attention..... can I have one of the black panthers? I saw a movie once where the mexicans lined up prisoners close single file and tried to see how many could get with one shot. Hell I’ll get me one of them 50cal Colts!

A summer’s fight ain’t one the acorns nor pink panthers really want to come up against. Its easy for the HNIC to tell his robots, “Go get em” while standing WAAAAY back behind with one foot ready to run back to First Base.

I had one show up at my door last year.

I told the kid, "No, I don't vote for communists."

Never saw them again.

"If those “Organizing for America” drones show up at my door, they’ll get a first hand demonstration of “open carry”."

If you are in your own home, you can "open carry" all you want, even if you can't on the street.

Regardless, what good does showing them your pretty gun do to discredit the free health care propaganda they are canvassing the neighborhood with?

Wouldn't it be better to buy a copier and distribute propaganda explaining what Obama care will really mean around your neighborhood, and what people can do to stop the Feds from intruding on state jurisdiction?

If all of this wasn’t so serious I would have to roll with laughter. Right now I am in a cut off sweatshirt and old jeans. If you have seen any of the townhall videos, none of those folks are dressed in fancy clothes.

The Communist democrats just know the schlub folks are too lazy to look in to what the truth really is.

Could people really be so stupid to believe people are showing up in a damn suit?

..."working folks who supported this goofball despise the idea of government run health care."

Anyone who has had to deal with Govt. health programs like Medicare, Medicade, and TriCare knows how inefficient the government is. Especially the business offices of doctors. I had a talk with the business manager at my surgeon's office today. She is soooo opposed to Obama's plan she said "don't even get me started...we had to fill out a 75 page form for Medicare just to change the address of our office..." Can you imagine how much paperwork these people will have to deal with under Obama's plan? And the inefficiency of it all will cause many to just quit because of the stress.

The left can't show up to counter protest because this argument is all about the details, and as we all know, unless they are given chants or bumper-sticker slogan's, they don't have a thought in their collective head to fight with.

They'll just cover their ears, close their eyes, start clicking their birkenstocks toghter and chant "oh-bam-ah, oh-bam-ah, oh-bam-ah...."

You don't understand. These aren't simplistic times. This isn't the same kind of fight.

And don't you dare preach to me, and tell me I live in a cocoon. I put my 23 years of service in, and lost a son who was putting in his- fighting a war that was made hopeless the moment our president and brainless politicians approved the new constitution for the country he was fighting in which included the clause "the koran shall be deemed supreme to anything contained herein which conflicts with it".

This is a propaganda/media war. It should also be a war of idea's, but our side, -the Republican party- doesn't have an alternate plan on how to fix our health care system, while maintaining it's current structure, which is still the cheapest and best in the entire world, and can be for a long time to come.

And we don't have a method of hammering the message, which should also be an election issue to the public because the Communists and their media have full control of virtually all the media 95% of the public watches, which can and does shut out all our attempts to get information to the public, plus LIES, spins, and fabricates whatever they desire.

I'm not saying it's impossible to overcome impossible odds, but it's going to take a lot of people, many of which don't have the time to do what needs doing, because they have to feed their famillies.

there were only a "handful" of Nazi ss troops, and 6 million Jews, and look what happened.

But did the Jews have 2 Kalishnakovs, a .45, two .38's, a 9mm, and a Mossberg 500? I know it's just a starter kit, but we're working on it.

Yep....they bring a knife.....you bring a gun

Really, I don't think it's going to take anything like that.

I think Obama's got a GLASS JAW....can't take a punch.

He's had a cakewalk all his political life. He and his thugs have relied on ALinsky intimidation tactics to cow all opposition.

Well, that's not going to happen this time. Even the doe-eyed press corps is starting to notice that the "paid-for-mob" talk doesn't jive with the polls.

The first time the press starts asking Obama some really tough questions....he'll fold like a cheap suit.

Get the popcorn ready, cause I think that lovely moment may be coming sooner than anyone thought possible.

They are also calling for their troops to show up at the health care meetings and outnumber any protesters: President Obama's political outfit, Organizing for America, is now trying to entice supporters to show up at health care events in order to make sure tea party protesters are outnumbered..

Look for there to be trouble.

“The Securitate is coming.”

This was spoken over an open mic when Romanian dictator Ceausescu lost the crowd during a speech. A few days later he was executed. I don't think ACORN or the new black panthers are that much to worry about.

A handful of Jews with few weapons held off the Nazis outside the Warsaw Ghetto for a number of days.

Thugs & fascists are cowards when faced with armed opposition. They’re more used to bullying and thuggery, not conflict or battle.

Question for the forum:

What is covered under the “Civilian Security Force” concept that is to be just as “well funded” and well equipped as the military? Will they have weapons, uniforms, helmets and kits? Will they have tanks? Will they have an air corps, signal corps, special warfare?

The left’s mindset is so engrained with having the state do and direct all their dirtywork,

that they have no clue about what thousands of “lone wolf” types can do without any coordination.

The only downside is that there might be so many of them going after the same targets that they’ll get in each other’s way.

Thank you for your service.

People froze at Chosun and were mowed down at Normandy. Troops marched farther and faster than any army in history in the battle of the Bulge. Twelve guys in Afghanistan held off and killed hundreds of Taliban after descending down a mountain—and being awarded for their bravery thereafter.

There was the Medal of Honor guy who stood alone against AQ in Iraq and was only killed after he ran out of bullets.

Hardly simplistic.

When some trained (former) Marines and Soldiers start to organize, these thugs will melt back into their neighborhoods like the cowards they are. Sure they'll be a few to go out in a blaze of glory, but the ones that get to watch that won't want some of that.
