What is wrong with people

Disturbing article about more lunatics going crazy at the idea of everyone having health care. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/aug/12/healthcare-town-halls-obama

Thankfully if you look at the actual numbers in poll responses they've stayed quite steady, dropping only one per cent, despite widespread outcries that everyone hates reform and the president. Let's try looking at facts and not hyperbole.

Someone sent me some gobbledegook today about the CARS program and how it gives the government permission to look at your computer from here until eternity. It took me less than two minutes to find the real truth behind that canard. People do your homework before you pass this kind of stuff on. Do you really want to be a pawn?

Still squicked by the stuff that went around yesterday saying Hawking would be dead if he had the misfortune to be born in the UK. How long would it have taken to Google and see that he is British through and through? Ten seconds? Yeesh.

If you've got Twitter take a look at the #welovethenhs hashtag.

Truly don't understand what is wrong with people. It seems like currently the insurance companies are the "death panels" that drop people's coverage when they need it most. Public option would go a long way to solving that. It's clear you can't reason with insane people that are ideologically opposed to everything the Obama admin does... (That, and they hate black Muslim communist Nazis from the foreign country of Hawaii.)

Well said.

It's discouraging that the minority are so loud and drowning out productive discussion. I worked in medical claims for twelve years, both for a fringe benefits fund and two doctor's offices and I know that there is so much more we could be doing. I'm extremely frustrated feeling like a real opportunity for change is slipping away.

I've called my reps. I'm not sure what else I can do.
