Kerosene on the Fire

Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with the people in this country?

I thought my last post would be the last involving health care reform and the nut jobs that oppose it (Note – not everyone who opposes it is a nut job, just the ones I discussed).

Below is a time line of the events that have occurred and if you find yourself aligning with the beliefs and thoughts of the people that are discussed, than you are despicable, batshit-crazy and need serious help.

“I Am The Mob”

The Daily Show’s Jon Steward had a great take on this issue last night. He showed a clip from a Fox News interview that was conducted with a woman who stood up and voiced her displeasure about health care reform at town hall meeting. The woman claimed a “sleeping giant” had been awaken and she would not stand for this country to “turn into Russia.”

The interviewer asked her if she was satisfied with the speaker’s response to her. She said (and I’m paraphrasing): “To be honest, I was so (charged up) from what I said, that I didn’t really hear half of what he said.”

As Jon Stewart interjected – “Perfect! Welcome to FOX News, when can you start?”

-Oh, and another neat fact. 12% of self-identified conservatives in North Carolina did not believe or were not sure that Hawaii was part of US. Proof.

This is a problem…

    I love all these political posts and how angry you get. EVERYONE should be angry about things like this. More young people need to be like us and give a crap. Keep it coming!

    Also, on the Early Show this morning, some man was yelling saying “Keep your government hands off my Medicare” … um hello? Medicare is provided by the government.
