From @SluBlog

These two posters are from @SluBlog on Twitter & on SluBlog. They are in reaction to the White House efforts to frighten Americans opposed to Obama's plans.
Dear Robert Gibbs, President Obama, and other DNC operatives - I'm not afraid. Report me. I could give a shit buddy.
The White House says they want to fight a "whisper campaign".
I'm not whispering.

Were these copied and retooled from the Bush Admin? LOL. How are ya, Maggie?

You know that Bush was never spying on Americans. Say what you want about the wiretapping thing, that's fine. But I was never asked to "report" emails that spread misinformation. And you know yourself, if they would have asked GOPers....I would have been on that list. Not that I would have reported anything, I would have just argued with it myself. I'm a fighter, not a finker.

This is a link to Ace of Spades and it's Glen Beck making fun of her, but the first part is a real woman, being serious. So hold your nose, lol

Major LOL! Oh, of course, I know that, Maggie. But a lot of similar posters were running around during the Bush Administration.

I'm about to post the latest on Town Hall Meeting disruptions. The Daily Beast, which I think is fairly even handed, notes that the people distrupting these events are not real Republicans, just fanatics. I have to agree.

I wish I could watch the Beck clip. Currently, I can't watch videos because I'm working on one of those teeny computers that runs on the Linux O/S. I give a solemn vow never to complain about Windows again.

And, as for you, "I'm not a humanitarian, but a hell-raiser." Can you relate?

I think when places like the Daily Beast say the protesters aren't real Republicans that's another way to discredit them. I will not distance myself from the anger and fear these people feel.

Here's a link from a favorite New England lib.

I very much enjoyed that article, Thank you so much for the link,particularly a commenter named Boston Maggie, who wrote, "The answer is to keep talking until you get past the anger. The answer is also for every member of Congress to read that bill and be able to answer specific concerns."

I know the bill is 1,200 pages, but this is too important an issue not to review the bill carefully. After all, that Congress' job.

We cannot have a country without civil, intelligent discourse. If that's what you mean, we are in complete agreement. I vehemently disagree with fanatics—that holds true for both liberals and conservatives

I know when I visit your blog, I get reasoned, rational responses to my comments. I hope I can always do the same for you.
A present: how to embed links. After you embed your first link or two, you'll find it easy to add them.

1. Type <, a, and >
2. Type a space,then href="
3. Copy and paste the URL after href”—no space.
4. Insert the URL after the —no space.
5. Type after the URL—no space.
Type > after the URL—no space.
6.Add text
7.Add a <, /a, and >—no spaces.

You can also replace the text with a picture that will link to the site you want.

I may not make sense, so here's a great link that provides directions probably better than me. Here's a good link. I hope this information is something you find useful.
