These citizens who were snubbed by Claire McCaskill's Cape Office staff are typical of the millions of citizens that Claire McCaskill, The National Democrat Party, and the national news media controlled by democrats have slandered and defamed as a 'dangerous mob.'
Open Letter to:

Senator Claire McCaskill

Federal Building

555 Independence Room 1600

Cape Girardeau, Missouri 63703

Our constitution says we are a representative republic, to be governed by 'We, The People.' But, what do we do when the Senator elected to represent "We, The People" slanders us, ignores us, impugns us, misinforms us, deceives us, and hides from "We, The Tax Paying People" she has sworn to represent and protect? On Thursday November 5, 2009, a group of a approximately 40 or 50 people out of their own volition, expense, and passion decided to pay a visit to Senator Claire McCaskill's District office in Cape Girardeau, MO. Nobody is paying us a dime for anything. We have no well tax funded 'special class' status, with union money or diverted tax money paying our expenses or providing us free transportation. We are just normal every day common citizens who obey the laws, work and pay our taxes. The first insult was when a Security Policeman approached us while we were gathered outside on the steps of the Federal Building waiting on some other like-minded LEGAL TAX PAYING CITIZENS to make their way from the parking lot to join us and go in to Claire McCaskill's office inside the Federal Building, Room 1600. The Policeman introduced himself, and said, "so you're really going to do this, huh?" And I said do what? He said "you can't do this on Federal Property?" We asked him, "who pays for Federal Property." No Reply. So, I said, "look, I can understand you may not want any signs inside the building, but we are here to deliver individual messages to Claire McCaskill about the HealthCare Bill. I don't think there is a law that can prevent me from visiting my Senator who is supposed to represent me." Then he said, "Well, there are a lot of people already in her office." I said, "Well, that's why we're here, we'll join them." With that he said, "wait right here." Those with signs returned their signs to their vehicles. After waiting several minutes, I said, "there's no law against our entering a Federal Building that we help pay for with our TAX DOLLARS!" So, we proceeded in and became bottlenecked trying to get through the airport type routine of ultra tight security removing belts, cell phones, watches, scanning, etc. I could see the same Policeman/Security Officer on the other side talking on his radio to someone while the painstaking process held us up for what seemed like an hour. He never returned to say anything to me. Some of us had to return our fingernail clippers and our pen knives to our vehicles. A long walk from where we were. After about 20 or 30 minutes of this sheep shearing we finally got through security, only to be told at that juncture, "well it seems Senator McCaskill has given her staff the day off." No one is in her office?? The door was locked, and that's the only thing we could verify. About half of our number dispersed and went home. But about half of us were too livid to just give in. Were they really (off) when the policeman/security guard was telling me 30 minutes earlier to get off Federal Property, and to wait here?? Or, did they just mysteriously become "off" after we tax-paying citizens persisted and refused to leave but made our way into the inner sanctum? What's the truth here? Either Senator McCaskill's staff got instructions from the senator to close up shop, and sneak away; or Senator McCaskill's staff took it upon themselves to close up shop and sneak away; or, Senator McCaskill having heard about the possibility of district office visits today by constituents opposed to the HealthCare debacle was advised by Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid or just decided on her own to shut down district offices and give her ENTIRE staff the day off in the middle of the week; Or, some combination of all that. At any rate, if the whole staff office was off that day, why wouldn't that have been the first thing told us by the Policeman/Security Guard who told us instead to remove ourselves from Federal Property? I leave that up to you to decide. But no matter how you explain it, the clear message driven home to us is that the law abiding tax-paying citizens are now treated worse than illegal aliens, by democrat district office personal and their Senator, if they oppose the Radical National Democrat Agenda of Federalizing/Nationalizing/Socializing America's free market based economy. And, illegal aliens are treated liked preferred citizens by liberal, progressive, socializing democrats. Since I couldn't tell McCaskill's office staff what I came to say, then I will tell the public what I came to tell the McCaskill district office staff. CLAIRE MCCASKILL, YOU LIE! Earlier this year, you traveled the State of Missouri telling us we were wrong when we said the health-care legislation that YOU (MCCASKILL) Pelosi, Reid, and Obama are pushing contains tax funded provisions for abortions. Well now we all know that YOU LIED, it's in the bill. You LIED when you said the healthcare plan YOU (MCCASKILL) Pelosi, Reid, and Obama are foisting upon this nation does not have 'Bureaucratic authoritarian boards/panels that will make life and death decisions and guidelines on who, if, what, and how much treatment a patient will receive. You LIED when you said the healthcare plan YOU (MCCASKILL) Pelosi, Reid, and Obama are ramming down the throat of this nation could not be exploited by ILLEGAL ALIENS (also known as undocumented democrat voters) YOU LIED, ignored, and misrepresented about all the concerns we've tried to express to you...then you accused us of being ignorant and "misinformed." NO, MS. MCCASKILL! It is YOU (McCaskill) Pelosi, Reid, and Obama that are the misinformation dispensers along with your democrat dominated news media and your other democrat cohorts in congress who are scheming through Government regulations, mandates, and taxation to take over the entire healthcare system of the United States. YOU LIED (MCCASKILL) Pelosi, Reid, and Obama when you said this bill would be revenue neutral without taking away our present insurance, without increasing total healthcare and health insurance costs, and without rationing our health care choices, and services. Therefore, let it be known to all that is why WE OPPOSE YOU IN THE STRONGEST TERMS POSSIBLE AND WE WILL FIGHT YOU INDIFINITELY TO PREVENT YOU FROM DOING THIS TO US. AND HOPEFULLY WE WILL UNSEAT YOU FROM YOUR LOFTY PERCH NEXT ELECTION!

This is our plea:

NO Government control of health insurance -- NO new government programs for health Insurance, NO government-run plan. NO government-sanctioned "co-op"

NO Government-forced insurance -- mandating that Americans buy health insurance

PRESCRIBED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT!

NO Government authority to control health care decisions. NO GOVERNMENT authority to make available treatment decisions. NO COMISSION OF BUREACRATS. NO BOARD OF BUREACRATS making life and death decisions for patients or doctors. NO BUREACRATS making treatment decisions for patients or doctors.

NO Raising taxes on businesses, NO raising taxes on health care providers, NO raising taxes on patients, directly or indirectly. NO causing the raising our insurance premiums. NO rationing our health care services.

BEST Remedy for improving stated intentions by politicians to improve healthcare delivery, and expand coverage on the underinsured and uninsured...

ALLOW Buying health insurance across state lines ...this will create more

competition and more options for patients and preserve our free market system with out government intervention destroying our freedoms.

ALLOW Lawsuit-abuse reform -- reduce extra tasks, expenses, and jeopardy that are holding doctors back from treating patients which is among the top elements driving up healthcare costs

ALLOW Tax credits for all incomes -- level the playing field so that all Americans get a tax benefit for buying health insurance not just those who get insurance through the workplace, but all LEGAL CITIZENS (this will entice more people sharing the burden and accomplish the stated goals responsibly without Government Authoritarian Gestapo tactics)

P.S. Attached is a picture of only half of the sincere citizens who came to the district office of Senator McCaskill to make known their grievances. These citizens are typical of the millions of citizens that Claire McCaskill, The National Democrat Party, and the national news media controlled by democrats have slandered and defamed as a dangerous mob.

Way to go John! I cannot believe McCaskill did that! She has lost her marbles if she thinks this will be slid under the rug! :-) I for one will not forget this at the polls. You do NOT disrespect senior citizens and get away with it. That is beyond rude! Keep up the good work!

Wow..... Judging by that photo, I'm guessing that all of the seniors in that picture are NOT taking part in the Medicare system?

Since you are all against government run healthcare, accepting that coverage would be a bit hypocritical, don't you think?

"Radical National Democrat Agenda of Federalizing/Nationalizing/Socializing America's free market based economy. And, illegal aliens are treated liked preferred citizens by liberal, progressive, socializing democrats."

Oh my, look at all those scary words!!!

Seriously, turn off Fox News and get a life...

Who needs fingernail clippers during a trip to the federal building?

Didn't your beloved Patriot Act teach you anything?

-- Posted by the_eye on Fri, Nov 6, 2009, at 11:58 PM

To "the_eye": It is not hypocritical to use Medicare when you have had money taken from your paycheck throughout your entire life to be used for this very purpose. They paid for it, so it is only fair that they use it. What IS hypocritical is our government trying to tell us we should use one healthcare system while they use another! Our government has taken money from our paychecks and put into the Social Security/Medicare system telling us it would be available when we retire. Now, we are being told that the system is broke? What are my parents supposed to do now? What happened to all the money? Every program that the government has run has been mismanaged and is broken! Now, they expect us to let them have more of not only our money, but our children and grandchildren's money to pay for this new healthcare system. NO THANKS!

However, this article is about our representative not making herself available to constituents. Democrat, Republican, or Independent...all should have equal access to their government. This is not a communist country!

-- Posted by Laryssa-5 on Sat, Nov 7, 2009, at 3:30 PM

I agree with you 100% about the medicare/social security debacle. It needs to be fixed...

But I'm sorry, the democrats are not to blame for this problem. They are all to blame.

We spent enough money in Iraq to run social security for a long time.

The last administration had 8 years to work on this, and they did nothing.

And yes, Mrs. McCaskill should have welcomed these folks in, and set the record straight for them.

It IS hypocritical to say outright that you don't want government healthcare, but to use it when you retire.

But you're right, every American should have the same healthcare that our representatives receive.

-- Posted by the_eye on Sun, Nov 8, 2009, at 9:41 AM

To the eye...it seems to me you have democrat socialist scales covering the eye that you are looking through. You appear to be a partisan hack. "set the record straight for them"??? You are the one who needs to be set straight. I hope you are of the age you sound to be. Because YOU are among the ones who will suffer most... many of these seniors most likely won't be affected by this radical socialization of 1/6 of our free market economy. You have bought into the 'big lie.' And you will be the one to pay. These patriots were doing this for YOU, more so than for them.

-- Posted by ResistBHO on Mon, Nov 9, 2009, at 9:21 AM

A partisan hack? Ok......

Please tell me in detail what the big lie is. I'm dying to know....

-- Posted by the_eye on Mon, Nov 9, 2009, at 10:28 AM

One part at a time...if this bill goes through ...Part of "The big lie" is that this is all about "Improving" health care for seniors which you imply...which definitely is not. Seniors will have their Medicare cut by $500 billion dollars...Healthcare for seniors will be rationed or out-right denied by the new health czar authorized in this bill. A second part of the big lie is that McCaskill Reid Pelosi and Obama intend for this to help health care the uninsured or our economy...just the opposite... they are out to destroy our free market based economy, and take over all segments of our economy. It is about socialist power taking over and cementing their control of every facet of American life. And you are a partisan hack...the eye...you are just one such plant by the government to eye, monitor, and rebut any critical statement against the Obama administration....you think you are above it all, and you are part of the new ruling class who will be immune to the devastation this administration is bringing up on America...but you may find that you are not as 'privileged' or as 'favored' as you once thought by this ruthless bunch once you have served your purpose for them.

-- Posted by ResistBHO on Mon, Nov 9, 2009, at 12:11 PM

I'm still waiting for you to tell me IN DETAIL what the lies are....

You know, FACTS....

Instead of just rambling the same nonsense that you hear on TV.

Have you actually READ the bill?

http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h39...

Isn't is amazing how these same people who keep throwing this socialist argument up when it comes to making healthcare better for everyone, never fought the last president when he was taking your freedoms away, lying to you, and sending our economy into a tailspin...

You know, the same president who sent thousands of our soldiers to die in the wrong war, and then cut their benefits when they came home.

"but you may find that you are not as 'privileged' or as 'favored' as you once thought by this ruthless bunch once you have served your purpose for them."

You're talking about our soldiers, right?

The same president who wanted to monitor all of your daily activities because we are all Terrorists when we disagree with his policies.

The same president who didn't do squat to secure our borders AFTER he allowed us to be attacked in the first place.

You are delusional.

The scare tactics don't work on me, or millions of other people, who see you all for what you are.

There is no free market economy anymore. It's all controlled by the the few, the rich, and the powerful.

They pay these members of congress to vote for them, not us. And we're not going to let it happen anymore.

We are taking our country back whether you like it or not.

-- Posted by the_eye on Mon, Nov 9, 2009, at 2:27 PM

Whose rambling now...I gave you facts but you can deal in facts...you can't handle the truth...where are YOUR facts, liar...you democrats engineered every facet of these American demolition programs....I have never seen such hateful twisting and restructuring of statements of others to build a straw man you can defeat rather that deal with the truth of the actual statements made...this is the only game you Keith Oberman types know...you hate our soldiers, you hate our seniors, you hate true patriots and would probably high five the terrorist Hasan who killed 13 unarmed fellow soldiers and wounded over 2 dozen others. Why don't you come out from behind your phony cover you coward. I'd love to meet you face to face for about 10 minutes. You need to be taught some respect and I am just the man who could and would do it.

-- Posted by ResistBHO on Mon, Nov 9, 2009, at 3:46 PM

There is no free market economy anymore. It's all controlled by the the few, the rich, and the powerful. Posted by the_eye on Mon, Nov 9, 2009, at 2:27 PM

First of all you are the dillusional one and I will offer proof. Unlike you, I won't misstate what was actually written, I will quote you exactly "in context" and expose you for the liar that you are. No. 1 The few, the rich, and powerful...ARE THE DEMOCRATS!!! Not the Republicans you want to us to believe. Wall Street is controlled by rich and powerful who contribute many more campaign dollars and lobbying money to DEMOCRATS than Republicans. The Sachs Charlatan Corzine (just one example) was just voted out by a huge majority land slide by Independent voters who see and know the truth.

Second, "They pay these members of congress to vote for them, not us. And we're not going to let it happen anymore." Posted by the_eye on Mon, Nov 9, 2009, at 2:27 PM

You got that right, and these members of congress vote for those big bank contributors and bailed them out and left us average citizens to foot the bill...idiots like you praise them....real Americans who don't have their heads up Obama's butt can see the truth and we know they're not voting for us and we will never vote for another lying deceiving democrat again.

Thirdly..."but you may find that you are not as 'privileged' or as 'favored' as you once thought by this ruthless bunch once you have served your purpose for them." You're talking about our soldiers, right? Posted by the_eye on Mon, Nov 9, 2009, at 2:27 PM

You know I wasn't talking about our honorable men and women in the military. I was talking about traitorous lying scum like YOU, ONE EYE! You are just another Keith Oberman type who can't handle the truth and deal with the truth, you have to twist and rephrase out of context what I said in order to defeat a straw man argument which was not made by anyone except you and your lying fabrications. You probably would love to high five the traitorous, Muslim Terrorist Major Hasan who murdered 13 unarmed, innocent soldiers and wounded over 2 dozen others. You are not worthy of their spit, much less their spilt blood at the hands of another anti-war demagogue like yourself.

Go back to your link you provided http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h39...

and look to the right of the page. You will see that 19% who have visited that sight actually Support the health care Bill.... 334 in favor / 1389 opposed. Now what does that say about WHO and WHAT you democrats are really voting for and against????

Your are pathetic, ONE EYE.

-- Posted by ResistBHO on Mon, Nov 9, 2009, at 4:32 PM

and now you want to associate me with a murderer....

how very Rush Limbaugh of you....

You can call me a traitorous lying scum all day, you're proving my point.

I'm a traitor because I don't agree with you?

I never supported bank bailouts. Don't put words in my mouth.

"you hate our soldiers, you hate our seniors, you hate true patriots and would probably high five the terrorist Hasan who killed 13 unarmed fellow soldiers and wounded over 2 dozen others. Why don't you come out from behind your phony cover you coward. I'd love to meet you face to face for about 10 minutes. You need to be taught some respect and I am just the man who could and would do it."

Thanks, i was confused....

You know, the best part is I never said I was a democrat. You just assume it.

And as is the norm for you and your type, you have to reduce yourself to name-calling and threats.

I guess the FACT is, you have no FACTS.

And now you want to meet me and "teach me some respect".

HA HA HA HA.

I'm done with you. You are an idiot.

-- Posted by the_eye on Mon, Nov 9, 2009, at 9:47 PM

And you sir, or maim, are a one eyed idiot...takes one to know one my Mom always said, and she was way smarter than you, One eye. I'd like to turn you over my knee and give you the whipping you've had coming since you started sniveling out your little left wing commie crap. And I am so glad to be done with you!!! Unless of course you want that 'wuppin' you got coming.

-- Posted by ResistBHO on Tue, Nov 10, 2009, at 11:10 AM

turn me over your knee????

Now you really do sound like a Republican...

You know, the party full of guys with "Strong moral character" and "family values" that cheat on their wives with homosexuals....

Yep, I think you'd fit right in.

"What IS hypocritical is our government trying to tell us we should use one healthcare system while they use another!"

WRONG. They want Americans to have the CHOICE. Public or private. That's what CHOICE is.

Just like you can CHOOSE to live off social security, or set up your own retirement account.

"Our government has taken money from our paychecks and put into the Social Security/Medicare system telling us it would be available when we retire. Now, we are being told that the system is broke?"

George Bush was the last President to take money out of the social security funds, so he could pay for his war. He was a republican, in case you forgot.

"Every program that the government has run has been mismanaged and is broken!"

The fact is that George W. Bush has presided over the largest expansion of government since Lyndon Johnson, who was no piker. Spending under Bush doubled the national debt to $10 trillion (which doesn't count such things as the unfunded liabilities of Social Security and Medicare). His veto pen was not to be seen for most of his administration. All kinds of spending soared, including domestic discretionary spending. "Entitlements" are out of control, helped along by Bush's prescription-drug add-on to Medicare. Of course his occupation of Iraq costs $10 billion month.

"they are out to destroy our free market based economy, and take over all segments of our economy."

WRONG. They are out to hold insurance companies accountable for their thievery. No more pre-existing condition exclusions. No more rate increases because you get sick. And on and on.

Who wanted to take over the banking industry with a massive bailout that didn't work? I'll give you a clue, it wasn't Obama.

Medicare fraud accounts for 60 billion dollars a year that we pay for. Maybe it's time to stop the fraud and set up some better regulatory practices in the industry.

You can whine and complain all day long about death panels and government paid abortions, and how the government wants to screw seniors over, and keep on with the socialist, commie talk all day, but no one believes it and no one cares.

At least, those of us with some intelligence in our heads.

FACT: the republican congress stood by and did NOTHING for 8 years about this problem. NOTHING.

They have no plan. Their only plan is to fight anything the other party does.

Insurance across state lines??? So by driving across the river, I'm suddenly going to get a better deal than I can get here? You mean Missouri is the only state with insanely high premiums? WRONG.

Insurance companies and oil companies are one and the same. They set the price, and no one can do anything about it.

Until now. The free-for-all is coming to an end.

You might as well get ready.

Now, go ahead and blame me for the death of that 8 year old boy whose parents took him to a gun show and let him fire an Uzi into his own head.

You might as well, I'm sure your buddy Rush will blame the President for it.

And I'm a socialist nazi commie just like him.

And proud of it.

Good luck with Sarah Palin on 2012... We're all pulling for her.

whoa...

John Adams.. did you really just write a 1,074 word paragraph? Ever heard of structure? Ironic you know it all, yet you can not decipher what a paragraph should be.

Oh, and then you give your address at the end of this "piece of work" and then threaten to beat someone up? Your intelligence is impeccable.

John, what did the Republicans do to fix health care, or the betterment of the voting citizens over the last 8 years under Bush? One word answer, NOTHING.

The Eye makes a great point. The money used used in the Bush wars could have funded Medicaid and Medicare and probably Social Security on top of that.

John, you should really stop drinking the kool-aid, it isn't so good for you. Remember what happened when all those people drank that kool-aid in Jonestown? Enjoy swallowing the liquid feces people like Hannity and Limbaugh are pouring down your belligerent and uneducated mouth.

Hey crackpot...great name, how appropriate...you worry about 'grammar' and 'sentence structure'...this is all you've been taught... this is not English class, and no one is impressed by you parsing diagnosis....We're talking about right and wrong....you idiots are swallowing more lies, cheering more debt, supporting more anti American garbage than any Republican President could ever foist upon a native village, much less our beloved U.S....You have no idea about right and wrong, nor care...If it wasn't for the Bush wars as you call it, that an overwhelming majority democrats voted for, you two numskulls may you have got your throats slit by now...which would be no great loss as far as I'm concerned...but Bush wanted to protect your sorry butts.... you have no concept of the puppet masters pulling the strings...you have no concept of lies and consequences...and yep, I'd take on you and the one eyed commie any day.

I agree with the majority of what Mr. Adams has to say and I don't think you can argue against his original point. No matter what side of the fence your on, I think it showed Clair McCaskill's true class (or rather lack thereof) to meet with the people she works for. I hope everyone takes this into consideration when they see her name on the ballot.

Wow, You really ARE a bigger idiot than I thought.

-- Posted by the_eye on Wed, Nov 11, 2009, at 1:36 PM

Crackpot and the_eye, gentlemen you have missed the point. This isn't about Bush, Clinton or Obama, their performance on war, terrorism, or the economy. It is about representation and our elected officials listening to the people they work for.

If you don't understand this simple fact, God help us all. This country was founded on individual rights, a government of the people, by the people and for the people. As a vet and on this Veteran's Day, many men and women have made great sacrifices so that we have the privilage of free speech and we should have elected officals that will open and willing to listen to all viewpoints.

As for the wars that you indicated the Bush administration got us into. Let me remind you, many people have disagreed upon going to war from 1776 to present day. I ask you where would we be if this country had not decided to go to war against Germany and Japan in 1941?

No right thinking person ever wishes to go to war and sacrifice men and women, but FREEDOM is never free!

We had better come together one and all Republican, Democrat, Independent or this country will cease to exist, united we stand, divided we fall.

Me must look forward not back, looking back won't fix the problems we face today, 10% unempoyment, huge national deficit, people in the world that want to kill Americans, government controlled banks, and auto industries, etc, etc.

-- Posted by vet-4th inf on Wed, Nov 11, 2009, at 1:38 PM

Did those folks who went to McCaskill's office show up with any ideas on how to fix this mess, or just want to stand outside with signs?

How many citizens does McCaskill represent????

Do you think she would meet with everyone of us if we showed up at the same time?

Maybe those folks should have used some tact and MADE AN APPOINTMENT.

I'd love for everyone to come together and work as one, but it will never happen as long as certain humans would rather use threats and fear, rather than expressing a valid opinion or a way to solve the problem...

Go back thru this whole page and read all of the ridiculous statements this John Adams has made towards just me.

I am a communist, a nazi, a socialist, partisan hack, a terrorist sypathizer, and on and on....

And yet, STILL no proper answer to solve the healthcare problems in this country.

Just the typical hate-filled bullying crap that just makes me laugh.

I've got an idea, let's pick an upcoming race, and I'll run against this fool, and we'll see who wins.

-- Posted by the_eye on Wed, Nov 11, 2009, at 1:49 PM

One eye, as bad as you try to make me out to be, I'm still a better citizen, and better man than you... and I'd never back down from a snit like you...try looking through you right eye and pluck that big plank stuck in your left eye out, and then pluck out that left eye, and cram it where the sun don't shine... it is what it is, and you are celebrating a phantom victory way to soon. Those chicks ain't quite hatched yet. Things are not as you construct them to be in your own delusional mind. But, you're right about one thing, those people didn't got there to kiss McCaskill's butt. They went there to tell McCaskill for the one thousandth time that what she is doing is wrong, and that she is not representing the wishes of the 65% of us in this district who voted against Obama and her socialist take over scheme, nor the 56% percent who keep telling McCaskill and Obama they are taking this country in the wrong direction. Go smoke another joint and kiss off. I thought you were done with me two days ago dummy.

You really don't get it do you....

You're so dumb that you post a link to a right-wing smear website which is run by a man who confessed to committing treason against the united states. He's a right-wing political pundit.

Yes, that's a fair and balanced way to find out what's going on in the world.

America voted for Barack Obama to be president because he promised healthcare reform.

He won the election. He is doing what he said he would do....

You are obviously from some little redneck wasteland of a town, because

A. you can't spell

B. you have no argument for your case

C. you're still threatening me

D. every time you post, The world's IQ drops a point or 2.

I am still laughing at how ignorant you are.

You wanna know why your representative won't meet with you???

Because you have NOTHING to contribute.

And if you speak to your representatives the way you have spoken to me, I'm glad she ignored you.

Now I guess I'll go poke my eyes out and smoke a joint or something...

Are you in elementary school?

John Adams...

I love the name calling. You are a very mature "Republican". I wish you would concern yourself with being a human and an American and not so much Republican.

You didn't answer my question "John Adams". What did the Republicans do when they had control of Washington DC?

And the Iraq war was unfinished business for the elder Bush. I have never went and beat up someone because my daddy didn't get to finish them off. If the previous administration wanted to thwart terrorism they would have focused on Afghanistan and "stayed the course".

What happened?

"We" ran into Iraq instead. It's kind of like stopping by the liquor store and your girlfriends house before going home to your family; something many Republicans know a lot about.

I also got a great big laugh at your posting of the "Discover the Networks" website. That is classic. Here is a link for you to check out. It should shed some light on your twisted idea of reality. Could it be a picture of one of your beloved soothsayers reading the Quran? http://www.fotosearch.com/FSD312/x117079...

And one final thing before I bid you farewell and go back to trying to better the world instead of just run my mouth on the internet...We are in the same "party" John Adams. Do you talk to your mother or other family members the way you talk to me? I hope not. Actually, let me rephrase that. We WERE in the same party. That was until I got tired of smear campaigns and lies designed to elect adulterers and womanizers back into office. How big is that poster of Sarah Palin you have hanging in your living room? Have you learned the Palin Pledge of Allegiance yet? Good day you sick, sad, delusional little man.

vet-4th inf- If you are truly a Vet then I want to thank you for the sacrifices you have made and possibly continue to make.

You know as well as I do that "Mr." Adams has submitted this letter for nothing more than the attention it has gotten him.

I have written "my" representatives numerous times and have either been ignored, or gotten a generic blanket response letter in the mail. Have I run to the SE Missourian and written a letter about it? No, I'm not a crybaby.

If I go to an elected officials office WITHOUT an appointment I expect to be turned away. Following the correct order and procedure for things should be common sense.

You say the point of this letter to to talk about not being represented by Representatives...

Welcome to reality.

"It is about representation and our elected officials listening to the people they work for."

You're exactly right. The people spoke, the people elected them, because the people wanted these problems fixed.

I said it once, and I'll say it again:

It's happening....

But don't worry, you don't have to be a part of it. You can keep your over-priced insurance policy for as long as you want.

You people have no argument against healthcare reform. NONE.

It has nothing to do with healthcare reform.

It's just politics as usual.

If the republican party told you that Saddam Hussein caused 9/11, you'd believe that too.

Oh.... wait.

But you're right, every American should have the same healthcare that our representatives receive.

Every American won't have their plan. Where in the heck did you come up with that? They will have what we could call the government plan and yours will be the citizen plan. Only THEY will have great care while you wait months for an important surgery if you live that long.

Sorry bud but the Dem's blocked 11 votes to give them the very plan YOU will have. They don't care about you. It is all about power. They don't want it so why should you?

Along with 435 other things. It looks like another "Buffalo Run" folks.

"Every American won't have their plan. Where in the heck did you come up with that?"

I didn't come up with that. I was agreeing with what someone else said.

We SHOULD all have the same care that our government employees receive.

SHOULD.... did you miss that word?
