Crackpot Comes Armed to Obama Town Hall

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kelly @ 3:12 pm

A man brings a gun to the Obama town hall meeting and there are actually people defending him! It’s incredible that anyone would even remotely consider this reasonable. I don’t care what the law is; there’s obviously a threat implied here. When you’ve got this much rhetoric being ratcheted up by the right, when you’ve got people defending murder already, when you’ve got people equating Obama with Hitler, this is too much. Add to the fact he held a sign, "The Tree of Liberty Needs Watering," a Jefferson quote in which the "water" was the "blood of tyrants." I’m worried that there’s going to be people killed before this ends. It seems the ignorant would rather kill than learn.  They would rather kill than have sick people healed. And they’re worried about where Obama is taking the nation?


  1. There is way too much ignorance and hate in this country! (Funny how those two things go together)

    That Sarah Palin could say the things she did in her blog and not be laughed off the national stage is completely beyond me. What a pathetic state we’re in!

    As abominably bad as our corporatocracy is, it’s hard to see how Americans deserve any better. We’re all so passive-aggressive, we don’t have a clue how to take our government back, and all we can associate action with is violence. Spoonfed civic infants we are!

  2. The church gave him permission to be there? Wow. I guess they know just who Jesus would shoot!

  4. Do you think the best way to get the cheapest plane tickets is by calling the airline? Or, do you scan through hundreds of websites provided by search engines to find low airfare tickets? Maybe you hope to find cheap airfare in the local newspaper’s travel section.
    Finding cheap airline tickets can be one of the most frustrating experiences that most of us learn very quickly. Of course, most people eventually give up after spending hours scanning websites that offer virtually the same flight schedules and pricing. People purchase what they believe is the cheapest plane ticket, only to find their neighbor paid just a third of what they did!

    Unless you understand the concept of of how airlines set prices, all the searching in the world won’t provide the cheapest airline ticket prices. The following information will give you a guide to follow, as you wander through the maze searching for cheap airfare.

    Understand how prices are set by airlines! Air ticket pricing is complex and unpredictable, and driven by competition, demand, and inventory. Airlines call this “yield management.”

    Competition is the beast behind the cheapest plane tickets. All major airlines utilize central reservation systems (owned by various airlines) to fill available seats. The systems are known as Apollo, Sabre, WorldSpan and Galileo. Prices are based on demand, and if some flights are selling well, the price will increase. If the flight is unpopular and has very little demand, the fare is lowered in hope of attracting consumers. In short, fares and inventory change every minute of every day!

    Finding the cheapest plane tickets is difficult because travel agents and Internet websites use the central reservation systems that are updated periodically throughout the day. The reason why different searches come up with different results is because the systems are not updated at the same times. And, each system may use different algorithms when searching for low airfare tickets, which can provide a variety of ticket prices .
