“Is it a wise decision” to add taxes now?

We are so in trouble.  In Charlotte, N. C. yesterday, Obama was asked this simple question:

“Is it a wise decision to add more taxes with the health care, because we are overtaxed as it is.”

His answer took over 17 minutes and 2500 words of rambling, blah, blah, blah.  It’s not possible to listen to all of it, but take a look at the faces behind him.  Do you think these people are buying what he is selling?  It is my opinion that he has contempt for them anyway.  “Democracy is such a messy business.”

From Carolina Politics Online:

When His Majesty appeared to his subjects here in Charlotte Friday there was an open Q & A with the serfs.  One woman bluntly told the Big O that we are already overtaxed and questioned his “wisdom” in signing off on a health care bill that will raise taxes on Americans while we are already suffering a recession.  Obama doesn’t handle the truth very well.

Toward the end of a question-and-answer session with workers at an advanced battery technology manufacturer, a woman named Doris stood to ask the president whether it was a “wise decision to add more taxes to us with the health care” package.

“We are over-taxed as it is,” Doris said bluntly.

Obama started out feisty. “Well, let’s talk about that, because this is an area where there’s been just a whole lot of misinformation

Translation: “You’re too dumb to understand, Doris.  You are not listening to my propaganda.” http://www.carolinapoliticsonline.com/2010/04/05/obama-touchy-on-tax-questions/

Protests Against Obamacare being held this week – Update X2 (New Pics and video)

Scroll to the bottom for video and updates from St. Louis yesterday.

While you cannot depend on regular news sources to tell you about what  is happening, there are protests across America in opposition to Obamacare.  Here are just a few examples.
Today, Obama is scheduled to appear in St. Louis, and this event has been closed to the public.  (I am watching him now in Washington, D. C. introducing the president of Haiti, so I supposed he is still going to St. Louis, or not?)   It is later this evening and I guess it doesn’t take long to get there on Air Force One.

There are protests scheduled in St. Louis for today.

“This Is Your Last Best Chance to Show the President You Don’t Want Obamacare—
2 Protests Are Planned……….
–The first protest is at 9:45 AM at the St. Charles Convention Center
–The second protest is at 5:30 at the at the Renaissance Grand hotel in downtown St. Louis.”

Scenes from Monday in Philadelphia on the outside of Arcadia University where Obama was speaking:

Below is a video of a rally which was on Monday, I believe, from North Carolina protesting in front of the office of Kay Hagan, (D) N. C. Senator. This is likely representative of other locations, so all is not as cheery as they want us to believe.

I believe it all hinges on the House vote.  If it doesn’t pass the House I think it’s all over.  If it does pass the House, Obama will sign it and we have health care reform.  It may never get to the Senate for the “reconciliation.”

UPDATE 1: From Michele Malkin:  Large crowd of about 2000 people were at the morning protest in St. Louis., actually St. Charles I believe it is.
See some great pictures Here.

UPDATE 2:  Tea Party welcomes Obama to St. Louis yesterday/last night!!

FIRED UP – READY TO GO

Photos from Dana Loesch (Pronounced Lash – I recently read an article about her. She’s a young mother and one of the original tea partiers or a tea partier before there was a tea party.)

There are lots of young people in this movement. Just check out the pictures.

Huge array of pictures Here.
