    Obama should pay attention. But I hope and pray he does not.

    Quite true. I fully expect union sycophants to show up and cause trouble. That is, after all, what unions are good at. IF the AFL-CIO does as they are commanded (and when have they not?), this could get ugly.

    Of course...any trouble...whether it be caused by union thugs, Democrats, or Republican operatives...will be blamed on Republicans or conservatives...because a vast number of the media is not conservative.

    You might have seen the news reports about right-wing mobs disrupting congressional town-hall meetings with venomous attacks on President Obama's plans for clean energy and health care.

    But now it turns out these mobs are organized and funded in large part by corporate lobbyists! Big Coal, for instance, is spending $40 million to oppose Obama's clean energy bill—and sending a 200,000-person "power army" to flood town-hall meetings.

    This comes on the heels of dirty coal lobbyists admitting they sent fake letters on NAACP letterhead to pressure swing members of Congress to vote against the energy bill. Fake grassroots opposition is the key to Big Coal's strategy.

    Here are just a few examples of what's been happening across the country:
    • In New York, police had to escort a congressman to his car after an unruly mob showed up at his event.
    • A Texas Democrat was shouted down by right-wing hecklers, many of whom admitted they didn't even live in his district.
    • One North Carolina representative announced he wouldn't be holding any town-hall meetings after his office began receiving death threats.
    • And at a Texas Democrat's health care event, a protester held a child on his shoulders along with a sign with Nazi "SS" lettering on it.

    And you have legitimate links to these, of course.

    Edited: Nevermind, I googled and found the original source to your information---

    Nuff said.

    It's going to have to, if people are going to wake up to the reality of the forces that are engaged to oppress them. It has been beyond diplomacy and debate for years. The socialists won't stop unless they're forced to.

    Hopefully, they've overplayed their hand—but I doubt it.

    The party of death wants to squash us like so many cockroaches. Then they can have their utopia (2 classes, rich and powerful them--versus millions of Americans, the poor).

    We are about to see what they do to squash us with a tyrannical fist.

    If they go ahead and use some trick or unseemly method to pass Obamacare, I fully expect the Democrats to utilize the same methods to do away with term limits on POTUS so that they can continue having him as the POTUS. Perhaps they will create a new amendment that names him as king of the US. They have the power and they can do just that using the same methods they use to pass Obamacare in both Houses. Once you know what evil is, it is easy to predict what evil will do next.
