The TV news and talk radio are twitching over the latest round of town hall meetings. A lot of talk, a lot of lies and misinformation coming from both sides of the false left/right paradigm.
Sure, health care is important but is it the most important issue of the day. Congress can't write a law that makes any sense and isn't full of special interest money. Obama seeks to control the debate but to what end?
Why haven't people been this up in arms about all of the other lies? There are the wars, the Federal Reserve, IRS, Wall Street, a constitution in ruins and a number of other issues that folks should be screaming about but are not.
Is this all about distracting us? Bigger things are happening but there's little in your face confrontations about those.
At best, these latest town hall meeting may delay the 'health reform' legislation but we'll see. Will Congress go back into session and vote against the will of the people as they have so many times? And why isn't anyone shouting about the criminal activities of the pharmaceutical industry, the FDA and other proposed laws that will repress our search for alternative medical solutions.
We have very few true representatives, only whores for the big money.
I think these town hall meetings are missing the basic points.
