Townhalls rocked by protestors, Pelosi cries "un-American"

Congress is currently on recess, opening time for some townhall meetings. Many members of congress have held townhall meetings within their districts. These meetings have been an oppourtunity for the American people to give their opinions, and that is what they've done.

There have been chants, shouts, and screams over the healthcare situation at these town halls. Many have complained that healthcare will be limited if the Democrats plan is passed. There have been strong turnouts accross the country.

However, these meeting turned violent when the SEIU got involved. The SEIU was angry that the American people were voicing their opinions so they decided to get violent with the protestors. In several incidents there were punches thrown at the conservative protestors.

Sarah Palin also weighed in, calling the healthcare plan "evil."

Nancy Pelosi recently commented on the protests, calling them "un-American." She said that it is natural for there to be some debate, but the protestors were being "un-American" and running an "ugly campaign."

It is shocking to me that Pelosi would accuse these protestors of being un-American, when all the liberals did for the past eight years was protest. It is called freedom of speech, Miss Pelosi, and both sides of the story have the right to it.

Sen.Boxer gets slammed over Cap and Trade for racial comments

The President and CEO of the Black Chamber of Commerce attended testimony over the Environment and Public Works on Thursday. Sen. Boxer (D-CA), the same woman who scolded a man in the service for calling her ma'am, was at that testimony. Sen. Boxer disagreed with Harry C. Alford, the President and CEO, so she decided to use his race against him.

Boxer quoted the head of "100 Black Men" saying that the Cap and Trade bill would help our society. She was suggesting that he should support the bill simply because other black people do, too. That is racism.

She brought race into the debate, which has nothing to do with the environment. She suggested that all African-Americans are the same, and that he should be supporting the bill just because other African-Americans do. It is pure racism to use someone's race against them, especially when the topic has nothing to do with race.

Alford would not stand for that racism. He fired back at her and flustered her to the point where she looked like she was going to cry. Good for him. Here is a video of the arguement:

We all know how nasty this Cap and Trade is. It is set up to damage corperations and tax customers out of control. Please, do not let the liberal Democrats shut you up. Boxer tried it, but Alford had none of it. By like Harry Alford. Call your senator and tell them how much you hate this bill.

Also, please call the following 8 "Republican" congressmen that voted for Cap and Trade and tell them how much you are upset with them:

Mary Bono Mack (R-CA)
Michael Castle (R-DE)
Mark Kirk (R-IL)
Leonard Lance (R-NJ)
Frank Lobiondo (R-NJ)
John M. McHugh (R-NY)
Dave Reichart (R-WA)
Chris Smith (R-NJ)

Sotomayor defends criticism, despite getting hammered by one Senator

Day one of Judge Sotomayors hearing began on Monday, and there was plenty of talk about her racial past. Judge Sotomayor denied that she believed that a latina woman would make better judgements and also denied the criticism of past decisions she has made due to race.

However, many Republican Senators grilled Sotomayor on her past. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said that we need to "expose her record" as an "extremely liberal" lawyer. Many others said that they were concerned by the comments. Sen Jon Kyl (R-AZ) acknowledged that he was proud that a latina woman had been nominated, despite concern.

The world is in shock after June stole its' fifth celebrity life today. Five celecbrities, and very famous celebrities. The celecbrities, in order of death, were: David Carradine, Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson, Billy Mays. Here are a few thoughts on each celebrity.

David Carradine: David was known for his role in "Kung-Fu." He passed away a few weeks ago from mysterious causes. He will be remembered for his acting ability.

Farrah Fawcett: Farrah lost her battle with cancer on Friday. Fawcett ill be remembered for her extreme beauty and iconic look. She will also be remembered for her acting ability, especially for her role in "Charlie's Angels." Fawcett had been battling cancer for a while and is now at peace.

Michael Jackson: Michael Jackson, the "King of Pop," died tragically of a heart attack on Friday in his Los Angeles home. It is still unclear whether MJ's drug addiction played a role in the death. Jackson lived a controversial and tragic life. He was involved in many scandals. However, in the end, people will remember him for his unbelieveable voice and ability to dance. Jackson was 50.

Billy Mays: Billy was a TV pitchman, remembered for his commercials for OxiClean, Orange Glo, and others, died in his sleep on Saturday night. The immediate cause of death is unknown, although he was involved in a mysterious accident in which plane debris fell on him when his plan made a rough stop the previous day. Mays will be remembered for his talent at pitching preoducts, but overall he will be remembered for his likeable personality, his kindness and his sense of humor. Mays was 50.
