Today was a big day in the health care debate. There were hundreds of rallies/protests across the country as people voiced their opposition to a government takeover of health care.

In the Phoenix area, 1,000 people showed up outside Democrat Congressman Harry Mitchell’s office in the morning, and then nearly 1,000 showed up at a town hall held by Congressman John Shadegg.

The East Valley Tribune covered both events.

Reports from the Shadegg town hall were that it was a very civil discussion.  And there wasn’t a big ACORN or Union presence.  Conclusion?  The reason you are seeing videos of major conflict at town halls across the country, is because the unions and ACORN are sowing discord to try to discredit those Americans who truly want to be heard.  When the union thugs aren’t around to intimidate people, tempers stay in check.

I’m not saying that there aren’t some loud and rowdy protesters from the right, but the only times there have been violence is when ACORN and/or unions are in the mix. 

It’s more than a coincidence.

    It’s sad that anything has reached violent levels,but I can’t help but love that people are so fired up. It’s an important issue and deserves attention.

    Apparently the American Medical Association has weighed in on the Medical reform ———-

    The Allergists voted to scratch it, but the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.

    The Gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, but the Neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve.

    The Obstetricians felt they were all laboring under a misconception.

    Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted.

    Pathologists yelled, “Over my dead body!” while the Pediatricians said, “Oh, grow up!”

    The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the

    Radiologists could see right through it.

    Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing.

    The Internists thought it was a bitter pill to swallow, and the Plastic Surgeons said, “This puts a whole new face on the matter.”

    The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea.

    The Anesthesiologists thought the whole idea was a gas, and the Cardiologists didn’t have the heart to say no.

    In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the @ssholes in Washington.
