Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Who is this group: "National Senior's Council"?

Our little community has an online discussion forum (which is heavily reich wingnut). I troll it a couple of times a week (after President Obama's re-election, it was a tremendous source of hilarity). I post factual rebuttal to the spittle flecked wingnuttery (pure comedy gold).

But, I'm starting to see some postings referencing this "National Senior's Council." I'm unfamiliar with the outfit, and would like to find out more about it. Here's the fuil monty:

National Seniors Council
A Committee of National Grassroots Advocacy
1100 North Glebe Road, Ste. 1010 Arlington, VA 22201

1. Looks like a rightwing front group

According to their Web site, these are the petitions they are currently pushing:

Sign the Petition to Repeal the Health Control Law
Sign the Petition Against Obamacare
Sign the No Benefit Cuts Petition

2. THE NAME IS NOTHING COMPARED TO WHERE THE MONEY COMES FROM

 

These groups like SWIFT BOAT VETS, TEA PARTY, ETC. are just the GOP trying to gather new nuts to wave their flag. The same angry old white people except flying a different flag. These people are rare, and unstable just like DYNAMITE.

3. The rights answer to AARP

They got mad AARP supports Obama care and opposes cuts to SS and medicare, so they took their ball and went to play by themselves.
