Yes, I will be joining about 50 other people on a bus trip to Washington DC. We are leaving tonight for a 12 hour drive (ugh).

There will be a health care rally tomorrow with people from all over the country. There should be thousands. If I see a CNN camera crew I will be sure to wave.

We also have appointments with several members of Congress so that will be interesting. I am very excited and hopeful about this trip. See you Friday.

Have a safe trip and tell them Congree members to read the bill before they vote on it. ok?

I hope you had a chance to speak to the Blew Dogs. And, that you and the group were able to impress upon them the fact that unless they bring forth health care reform with a ROBUST PUBLIC OPTION they will have blown it for themselves, and Obama, and the American people.

Do the Blue Cross Democrats wish us to remain the only industrialized nation on the face of the Earth that witholds health care, as a right of citizenship, from its citizens?

H.R. 676 was the preferred route. We've already compromised.

Thanks for your efforts and the efforts of the other Health Riders.

Our country may withhold health care from its citizens, but what about this:

It is just the beginning.

Sounds like C.F.A has drunk the entire insurance industry's scare tactic flavored kool-aid. Again, I wish the "little people" would quit playing the part of corporate pawn. Educate yourselves.

Eric at F.O.S is CHICKEN.

Too afraid to debate! Afraid he won't get his facts straight and will look like a fool.

More slop from FOS:

Gates and Obama suffer from the delusion that, if you are a black person, you have the right to disrespect and resist the police.

Again, “Eric” changes the “Facts” to her suiting.

Has Gates or Obama advocated that anyone has a right to “resist” the police? No, neither has. Resisting arrest is a crime. No one is alleging that Gates resisted arrests. Depending on whom you believe, he may have been disorderly, but he did not resist.

As for the “disrespect” of the police, I’d like for “Eric” to tell me which statute or ordinance says that it’s wrong to be “disrespectful.” I thought Eric was for Freedom of Speech, especially in one’s own front yard. I personally believe we should all be respectful at all time. However, if disrespect of the police is a crime, then it’s another “Professor” we need to arrest. Remember the “terrorists hiding behind a badge” comment?

F.O.S. hypocrisy at it’s worst.

F.O.S. is very critical on Obama. F.O.S. routinely praises Hillary Clinton.

I can barely tell a difference between the policies and political philosophies of Obama and Clinton.

So why the difference?

Let’s face it. F.O.S. is racist. “Eric” does not like the fact that we have a biracial President.

Time to get over it.

Why haven’t you printed up some “NO to racism” signs?
