Just came back from the demonstration Rally in support to the Health Care Reform.
Because we reside in the crazies base County, we took it to the street. It was amazing, fulfilling and effective, even when we are out numbered by the republicans. We delivered our message in a very peaceful and civil manner. We had no media coverage. I guess it is not fun to cover anything positive, if we were chanting Nazi, Hitler, and all the crazy stuff like take back our country, I am sure that would be attractive. Peace is not something that gets coverage.
Cars were honking in support. It felt so good, just to push back the crazies. Here are the pictures I took.
Have you ever felt a need to make your voice heard in the middle of the crazy mob, who appear to be so taller than yourself and look like Bullies? Imagine the picture of this crazy monster with big ugly teeth threatening to kill you if you speak the truth, and then you are there thinking , should I take a risk to fight this gorilla or not? Then your guts tells you, just go out and fight, do not get intimidated by the size of your opponent.
You bundle up off you go for a fight? That is what I did today. It feels so refreshing to preach the truth and facts to the people who have drunk the cool aid from Fox News and Glenn Beck.
In the middle of the battle ground, the entire ground chants in support of your message, cars honking in support, thumbs up.
That is exactly what happened today. You never know, how many people you may change, until you take part in educating the uninformed public. I just realized today that we have a good crowd in Warren County supporting the health Care Reform. Be like a brave turtle, facing the lion.
Of Course, I was doing paparazzi, since we had no coverage. Our county is controlled by Republicans, so they refused to give us publicity. The Radio, News papers are all controlled by Repubs and we had zero reporters, they told us in advance that we are on our own.
So I did my amateur photographing, but what the heck. I did it.
This was my favorite poster. Holding it is Janice Swack running for Council in Independence. She was the organizer of this demonstration against the tea baggers .Here she is
She is an Icon for Democrats in this county dominated by holy holy elephants.
We had one oposition who came to disrupt us, trying to sell his opposition message. We watered him down with facts, and obvious questions.
The dems are not putting up with any nonsense, they are fighting back in a civil and peaceful way. Our anti-Health care reform was this old guy screaming at us, chanting Obama is a socialist .
It was not easy with him because, our message overshadowed his negativity. He could not give an answer to what type of insurance he had. I asked him whether he was on medicare, you would have seen how we watered him down, with facts about health care, and told him medicare is a government run program. He immediately zipped his big mouth.
See what happens when you use facts to challenge a lie. These wing nuts have no facts, Flood them with facts, they have no answers. That is why you can’t be afraid. They use violent words to scare people, but when you confront them with facts, they are cowards.
Look at how embarrassed he looks after learning the truth about medicare. Duh
Small group but effective with the right message. For this county, this is pretty a good sign for change.
I walked by and took a pic of supporters, telling their personal stories and word of encouragement.
Peaceful people. Do you see any craziness here?
After this, my girl friend and I went to a near by out door free concert , to take our chances to handout our health Care reform flyer’s. We were successful. Check the crowd in this county, these are holy holy you know people? Anti Obama. But you will be shocked. I am sure many of these folks are on medicare. What is laughable folks is olsd folks who are against Government take over, are on medicare.
Anyway, all I can say is Fox News , Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh are misleading people in this country. All these old folks , do spend their days listening to fox news. What a shame.
Time to go to bed. Work day Monday. It’s 1.12 AM now. I am tired.
