Health Care Reform, Debate, Townhall Meetings, and Guns
I don't know about anyone else, but my headline makes me hum the 'One of these things' song from Sesame Street.
I am not really sure why someone felt they needed to take a gun to a town hall meeting, but someone did.
Also when President Obama appeared for a town hall meeting today, an opponent appeared on the lawn of a church across the street with a gun strapped on. Aside from what is obviously an attempt to intimidate people, what is the point. If you have a problem with a policy protest, speak out, don't threaten people with a gun. Bully tactics are both ridiculous and childish. And that is what is happening right now. The Right appears to be left with bully tactics.
