The sweltering heat has perhaps blessedly fused memory of the ‘health care‘ fiasco into any remaining ‘hope and change’ ganglia not impacted by Alzheimers. Those still sentient may read on about renewed license to protest even outside the Obama White House.
And thank Cindy Sheehan her co-defendants, and their devoted attorneys.
This week we are wisely reminded that Democratic party sellouts to big ‘medicine’ (Congress members) were due at the Obama residence March 20th at 4 p.m.. Cindy Sheehan, Peace of the Action (POTA), Answer Coalition, and others planned to give the overly-insured ones a fitting welcome. If you’d like to know what signs they were carrying, do a FOIA request of Park Police spies.
They taped the whole thing–signs, faces, even a socialist newspaper.
