Why where the protesters against imaginary death panels, who carried loaded weapons, treated by the media as upstanding citizens who deserved to be heard. While the people using signs and words to protest a massive increase in the power of the government to void contracts and decrease the power of people to negotiate contracts are referred to as wild-eyed haters who strike fear into the hearts of reporters.

Serious. Carry a gun to protest a debate, and you’re just a freedom loving citizen. Carry a sign to protest the governer voiding contracts, and threatening to call out the National Guard and you are a greedy wild-eyed hater.


Where was all this zeal for voiding contracts last year when bailed-out financial firms were handing out monster bonuses to their executives?
