As part of today's rally to stop the Democrats' health care reform legislation thousands of protesters descended on the lawn of Capitol building. But many more were also using the occasion to visit the their congressional representative and tell them what they think of the bill.

However, Capitol Police recently stopped allowing any of the peaceful protesters to enter into congressional buildings. Crowds are now gathering in front of the House and Senate offices, demanding that they be let in to air their constituent concerns.

Excellent observation. Of course today, the Tea Party folks are getting a bad wrap in the MSM, one bad apple means the whole group is bad.

Now there are congress critter’s needing extra protection because of threats.

I do not know anyone who would advocate violence to get their point across.

Folks are ticked off, they feel their voice wasn’t heard. It will be heard in Nov.
