Thoughts for Today

If Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi thinks the insurance companies are the villians in the healthcare debate why does she want to force 30 million Americans to buy health insurance from these same companies?

For several months I have written about the orchestration of Obama events and now we learn that David Axlerod is an expert in creating such situations. He has a major interst in a firm and was the brains behind a technique called "Astro-Turfing," which is the creation of grass-roots type movements to sell a point of view. He did it for a living before joining Obama. He's doing it now.

Richard Wolff of NBC News thinks that conservatives that show up at Town Halls are all paid protestors, like the type historically hired by Al Sharpton, Green Peace and ACORN for protests. The truth is that as more Americans learn the content of the Healthcare legislation the more they object to it.

Finally, the Whitehouse is now asking Healthcare bill supporters to report those who do not support the bill by reporting them to What happens then?
