Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) faced some unexpected guests at his Obamacare town hall on Tuesday night, enduring a pair of hecklers multiple times during his speech.
Video footage from NBC News shows Cruz’ audience shouting “USA! USA! USA!” to compete with the protesters. The Washington Post reports that Cruz also received chants of “you have health care, we should too!” from the hecklers.
“Thank you for sharing your views,” he said, according to the paper. “You know, part of the First Amendment is about respecting others.”
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances
Apparently, Mr. Harvard Law Scholar (a title that apparently is acceptable if you’re a christianist psychopath and have skin lighter than Barack Obama’s) thinks that the First Amendment regulates individuals (something that all of the tort-reform-fraud-ers who buy Republican legislators such as Cruz will be iterested to know) rather than acting as a prohibition against government action and as a command to the government to listen to the people when they have a gripe.
So Mr. (Illegally-Employed) Government Employee, STFU and listen to the people, you know…
the people who actually pay taxes who actually know what they are talking about re: Obamacare.
In his first interview since November’s presidential election, Mitt Romney compared the end of the 2012 campaign to the sensation of getting off a roller coaster.
Ann Romney said she believes the couple has done well with the post-election “adjustment,” likening it to roles they have had in their church.
“In our church, we’re used to serving and you know, you can be in a very high position, but you recognize you’re serving,” she said.
No, Ann – you’re used to having your own definition of “serving.”
For Mitt the Flip in 1968, “serving” meant living in a French chateau and frolicking on beaches after rough days of recruiting new mormons. For almost every other American male of his age in 1968, “serving” meant the very real possibility of being kidnapped by the miltary and thereafter being forced to live in mudbogs in Vietnam and to die in rice paddies in Cambodia.
