Nancy Pelosi heckled by her supporters (Updates)

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is heckled by Code Pink at an event in Washington, D.C.

“We supported Obama, we supported you, now 21 states are begging for money to help us save the community,” a woman screamed at Pelosi.

Goodness.  I would call it screeching.  Funniest thing about this is that they are on the same side.  I’ve heard of loons, now I know what it means.

Washington Post video camera caught protester up close (a young woman in a wheel chair).  I believe they are chanting, hey hey ho ho, nursing homes have got to go.

 Among the protestors were members of the activist group Code Pink, who were silent but carried a banner with the message, “Stop funding Israel terror.”

Obama, his language and medicare speech today

Well, I hear that today Obama is going to brag about this $250 they are getting ready to send to seniors in the donut hole.

First off, I don’t think there are that many who are actually in that position.  And for those that are, it means they will have to pay $4500 (I think, I know it’s a lot) in prescription meds at 100 percent of the cost, before the plan picks back up again.  So $250 is nothing – absolutely nothing.  They might as well just keep it.

These people in Washington, D. C. are either stupid or are delusional and out of touch with all reality.

So what a joke it will be for Obama to talk about how wonderful the new health care benefits are for seniors.  I am trying to be controlled and civil, but good grief, it’s just so ridiculous.

And the brochure they sent out is a very expensive print job on slick paper in full color – you would think it was advertising a Bahama vacation or something – which I doubt anyone will read because we all know it’s full of lies and misrepresentations.

Go to the link to read the article at The Hill and also the comments.  I’m not the only one who thinks this is nuts.

But, of course, that does not matter to the Obama administration and Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer and Kathleen Sebelius, and the democrat majority.  They are using strong arm tactics, out and out propaganda full of deceit, and this will not stand in America.

I am pretty angry thinking about this, but I am trying not to resort to language such as our *alleged* president has used recently on national tv for everyone to hear, young and old.  How are you going to tell your children or grandchildren to have respect for the president at this point when you have to try to explain why you won’t let them use such language and the president of the United States uses it.  I do have respect for the presidency but not this president.  None. at. all.

P. S.:  And the oil is “thick as pancake batter” on the Gulf Coast shore.

I’m going to go work in the garden.  🙂
