Support for reform growing again - Republican hate backfiring?
http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2009/08/08/new-shi... / shows the growing support for health care reform in another recent poll. I think the Republicans are once again showing themselves to be the nasty ugly people they are and turning the American people off again.

1. It's like a party full of dick cheneys.
Hateful, petty, and mean-spirited. And openly so! The whole world is watching.

2. Once the thugs disrupting meetings were exposed
as being Repug shills or bussed in by insurance companies -- and their talking points turning out to be the same all over -- people stopped listening to them.

3. A few hundred people on a busy street in our metro read my sign yesterday evening:
"American Socialism = Wars r U.S., Inc."

We were protesting our nuclear weapons factory, but I included that point about Socialism in response to all of this BS about Socialized Health Care.

I hope this made a few people THINK about what's going on.
