Daily Show: Betsy McCaughey Toasted

This is a good one! Betsy McCaughey, Health Reform Nutcase extraordinaire on Job Stewart…

This one is the warm up.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Now here is where it get’s serious, the pic quality isn’t as good (I got it off of YouTube), but Stewart really starts asking some tough questions and pointing out a few things –

When the going gets tough…

Indeed.

The question still stands – If the US is 83rd in the world in Infant Mortality…

What exactly makes the current system so great?

Exercising Freedom? Hardly. Arrest the Gun Toters!

Here is a video of the moron who brought an assault rifle to a Town Hall Meeting attended by President Obama. This was a publicity stunt, coordinated with local police.

What is being missed here, is several Laws which have to do with the President. The first is – wherever the President is, is Federal Land temporarily during his presence. This is done such that the Federal Protective Services and the Secret Service have jurisdiction, and the authority to operate in the State. It also gives them precedence over State authorities in a protective zone around the President.

As such, the applicable law here is Federal… Not State.

The Secret Service is perfectly within the Law to arrest and lock up the bozos, and try them for violations of Federal Law.

The second group of laws allows the Secret Service to establish “Free Speech Zones” around the President. This was done extensively during the Bushit Administration to hide and suppress protesters. Now, there is a lot of argument about the Constitutionality of such, especially if it is utilized as the Bushit Administration did to suppress political opponents rights to Free Speech. And I agree, the sort of suppression of Free Speech done during the Bushit Administration more closely resembled a Fascist or Communist dictatorial regime than American ideals.

BUT… A valid argument can also be made that when a person brings a gun to a Public Meeting, that such is an actual threat against the Free Speech of people who disagree with them. A cornerstone of Law Enforcement Authority in this country is the implied threat of an Officer carrying a weapon. As such, a protester carrying a loaded gun to a Town Hall style meeting of opposing viewpoints is inherently doing so to suppress the Free Speech Rights of those speaking out against that person’s position.

As such, serving the Constitutional guarantee of Free Speech would be either arresting and charging these bozos illegally carrying guns under Federal Law, or locking them away in “Free Speech Zones” out of possible range of physically threatening or harming other protesters.

Unarmed protesters should be allowed to yell at each other to their heart’s content, and should not be subject to cloister or suppression by placing them in isolated Free Speech Zones as the Bushit Administration did.

Wee-Weenie Syndrome – Needing a Gun to Go To Church, a PTA Meeting… Or to See The President

Here is a moron who came “strapped” to the President’s Town Hall Meeting yesterday in New Hampshire, carrying a threatening sign – “Now is the time to water the tree of liberty”. Those of you familiar with Thomas Jefferson’s quotes would know that the Tree of Liberty is “watered” with blood.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Quite frankly, when I first saw this on the news, I was voting for the Secret Service to remove this moron from the gene pool with a 7.62 between the beady eyes…

Not surprisingly, from the same group of folks, this:

A swastika was found Tuesday painted on a sign outside Rep. David Scott’s district office, an act the Georgia Democrat said reflects an increasingly hateful and racist debate over health care and should serve as a reminder for people to tone down their rhetoric.

Scott’s staff arrived at his Smyrna, Ga., office Tuesday morning to find the Nazi graffiti emblazoned on a sign bearing the lawmaker’s name. The vandalism occurred roughly a week after Scott was involved in a contentious argument over health care at a community meeting.

Scott, who is black, said he also has received mail in recent days that used N-word references to him, and that characterized President Barack Obama as a Marxist.

“We have got to make sure that the symbol of the swastika does not win, that the racial hatred that’s bubbling up does not win this debate,” Scott said in a telephone interview. “There’s so much hatred out there for President (Barack) Obama.”

A moderate Democrat who represents a majority-white district near Atlanta, Scott said he thinks the racism is isolated but can’t be ignored. He said the swastika probably was intended as a warning. He hopes it instead persuades reasonable people to maintain a more substantive debate over health care changes.
