Along with 40 or 50,000 of my closest friends, we rocked the House of Represenatives today! Starting at noon on the West Lawn, we could be heard by the legislators inside as we listened to speakers that included John Voight and President Obama's own second cousin who is a physician. Several congressmen who spoke commented that we could be clearly heard inside when we chanted "Kill the Bill!" At 2:30 we moved to the House Office Buildings where the chanting continued as congressmen crossed the street from their offices to the Capital.

Later, the crowd completely surrounded the Capital building and marched around continuing the chants of "Kill the Bill!" A crowd formed at the southeast corner of the Captial. Some of the conservative congressmen came out and began addressing the crowd. Someone from the crowd provided a bull horn and they stood on the steps and one after another addressed and updated a crowd of probably 5,000. One of the congressmen noted that it was the first time he had ever seen the Capital surrounded just like the walls of Jericho!

While we were outside, the Rules Committee was trying to meet on the 4th floor to decide how to handle debate before the vote on Sunday. The crowd was so loud outside that the Speaker eventually abandoned the meeting because they could not hear. During the day, House Leadership abandoned the Deem and Pass approach. Thanks to the Patroits chanting "Kill the Bill!", "You Lie!", and "Nancy!" We may have changed the course of history.

Thanks to all for the calls and e-mails. Several of the congressmen reported that we were making a difference, not only in moral support for them but in changing the direction of the legislation and the undecided as well.

We will be back at 11:00 AM Sunday morning for the next round. We are expecting a vote at around 2:00PM and as of 3:00 today the whip count had the yes votes at 214 and the no votes at 217.

Keep the lines burning all day Sunday. This will not be over until November!

P.S. Judy, I should have spoken up for your sooner. Can you forgive me?
Comment by Roma and Tom on March 25, 2010 at 10:32am
Judy,

I did not mean to imply that you had infiltrated the group to cause problems. I was only conveying what my Congressman's office had told me, and intended to direct that toward the three people in DC who were said to be rude with Congressmen in DC. No one knows who they were, or even if they did as said.

However anyone who gets rude, threatening or violent sure helps the opposition even if they are not ACORN plants .

I still say that political correctness is killing this country. My ACORN allies told me to refer to our group as law abiding and moral so you wouldn't figure out that I'm not really an ally.

We do not condone violence as a means of achieving our goals, and do not condone what three people out of thousands may have said in DC. Nor do I, or even most of us, condone any personal attacks on you as a person. They are wrong, and is what makes people vulnerable to leaders like Hitler.

You came here in support of most of our goals. It is not necessary that you agree with everything to receive our respect. Let us never treat another Alli as rudely as your have been treated.
allow us to disagree respectfully...sticking to facts...not personal insults.

When I first joined the Tea Party (on the advice of Congressman's Stearn's office) they told me they had gotten the word that ACORN would infiltrate the group to try to discredit it. They will also try to encourage disrespectful communication in order to divide us. Let us never treat another Alli as rudely as your have been treated.

Good luck finding a more law abiding, moral group of people. Ms Davis, either you are extremely gullible or you are exhibiting the kind of political correctness that is killing this country. Your post lacks credibility in my opinion.

God bless the USA.

Thanks Forest for the information. The link you gave failed, but here is an article that gives the link about "who they are"
Comment by Forest Wilson on March 22, 2010 at 4:08pm
Now its time to THROW THE BUMS OUT. Have a candidate for the third district (Corrine Brown)! www.deanblack2010.com - announced on Liberty Show on Saturday, March 20th, 2010. We need to eliminate the progressive caucus - Ms. Brown is one of the progressives. Let's make sure no progressives are re-elected come November. Go to http://cpc.grijalva.house.gov/ and see who they are. THEY MUST BE VOTED OUT OF OFFICE. LETS ROLL! Forest

Collecting for our Bahamian Neighbors

Good morning!

We spent last week wondering if we would be hit by Hurricane Dorian.  Thankfully we were spared.  However, the Bahamas were not so lucky.  I am sure you have seen the devastation there.

My daughter has a friend (a nurse) who is arranging multiple trips to the area and will be collecting supplies to take to those areas.  If you would like to help, we will collect things at…
