THE BROWN SHIRTS ARE COMING
Subject: Fw: What Really Happened Last Week in Montana

This was sent to me by a friend in Bozeman, MT who was there.
Why do we tolerate this?

Hello All,

By now you have probably heard that President Obama came to Montana
ast Friday. However, there are many things that the major news has
not covered. I feel that since Bill and I live here and we were at
the airport on Friday I should share some facts with you. Whatever
you decide to do with the information is up to you. If you chose to
share this email with others I do ask that you DELETE my email
address before you forward this on.

On Wednesday, August 5th it was announced locally that the President
would be coming here. There are many groups here that are against his
healthcare and huge spending so those groups began talking and
deciding on what they were going to do. The White House would not
release ANY details other than the date.

On about Tuesday Bill found out that they would be holding the "Town
Hall" at the airport. (This is only because Bill knows EVERYONE at
the airport) Our airport is actually located outside of Belgrade
(tiny town) in a very remote location. Nothing is around there. They
chose to use a hangar that is the most remotely located hangar. You
could not pick a more remote location, and you can not get to it
easily. It is totally secluded from the public.
FYI: We have many areas in Belgrade and Bozeman which could have held
a large amount of folks with sufficient parking.
(gymnasiums/auditoriums). All of which have chairs and tables, and
would not have to be SHIPPED IN!! $$$$$
During the week, cargo by the TONS was being shipped in constantly.
Airport employees could not believe how it just kept coming. Though
it was our President coming several expressed how excessive it was,
especially during a recession. $$$$$

Late Tuesday/early Wednesday the 12th, they said that tickets would
be handed out on Thursday 9am at two locations and the president
would be arriving around 12:30 Friday.

Thursday morning about 600 tickets were passed out. However, 1500
were printed at a Local printing shop per White House request.
Hmmmm......900 tickets just DISAPPEARED.
This same morning someone called into the radio from the local UPS
branch and said that THOUSANDS of Dollars of Lobster were shipped in
for Obama. Montana has some of the best beef in the nation!!! And it
would have been really wonderful to help out the local economy.
Anyone heard of the Recession?? Just think...with all of the
traveling the White House is doing. $$$$$ One can only imagine what
else we are paying for.

On Friday Bill and I got out to the airport about 10:45am. The groups
that wanted to protest Obama's spending and healthcare had gotten a
permit to protest and that area was roped off. But that was not to
be. A large bus carrying SEIU (Service Employees International Union)
members drove up onto the area (illegal)and unloaded right there. It
was quite a commotion and there were specifically 2 SEIU men trying
to make trouble and start a fight. Police did get involved and
remove the SEIU crowd.
The SEIU crowd was very organized and young. About 99% were under the
age of 30 and they were not locals! They had bullhorns and
PROFESSIONALLY made signs. Some even wore preprinted T-shirts. Oh,
and Planned Parenthood folks were with them.....professing abortion
rights with their T-shirts and preprinted signs. (BTW, all these
folks did have a permit to protest in ANOTHER area)

Those against healthcare/spending moved away from the SEIU crowd to
avoid confrontation. They were orderly and respectful. Even though
SEIU kept coming over and walking through, continuing to be very
intimidating and aggressive at the direction of the one SEIU man.

So we had Montana folks from ALL OVER the state with their homemade
signs and their DOGS with homemade signs. We had cowboys, nurses,
doctors you name it. There was even a guy from Texas who had been
driving through. He found out about the occasion, went to the store,
made a sign, and came to protest.

If you are wondering about the press.....Well, all of the major
networks were over by that remote hangar I mentioned. They were
conveniently parked on the other side of the buildings FAR away. None
of these crowds were even visible to them. I have my doubts that they
knew anything about the crowds.
We did have some local news media around us from this state and
Idaho. Speaking of the local media...they were invited. However, all
questions were to be turned into the White House in advance of the
event. Wouldn't want anyone to have to think off the top of their
head.

It was very obvious that it was meant to be totally controlled by the
White House. Everything was orchestrated down to the last detail to
make it appear that Montana is just crazy for Obama and government
healthcare. Even those people that talked about their insurance
woes........the White House called our local HRDC (Human Resource and
Development Committee) and asked for names. Then the White House
asked those folks to come. Smoke and mirrors...EVERYTHING was
staged!!!!!!!!!!!

I am very dismayed about what I learned about our current White
House. The amount of control and manipulation was unbelievable. I
felt I was not living in the United States of America, more like the
USSR!! I was physically nauseous. Bill and I have been around when
Presidents or Heads of State visit. It has NEVER been like this. I am
truly very frightened for our country. America needs your prayers and
your voices. If you care about our country please get involved. Know
the issues. And let Congress hear your voices again and again!! If
they are willing to put forth so much effort to BULLY a small town
one can only imagine what is going on in Washington DC. Scary!!

The whole reason obama won the election was because of acorn bull****. They bought the election. They are trying to buy heathcare.

Obama promised 3 million jobs when he proposed the bailout. We have lost 2 million since the bailout passed.

Sounds like he could have done his "town hall" meeting on a hollywood movie set and it would have been cheaper.

I came from USSR. Lived there for 27 years. We are not there yet but we are surely trying to get there...

I don't know if everybody saw what I saw in these "town hall debates", but for somebody who saw a lot of government "staging" and heard a lot of BS from government it was painfully familiar. Even MSNBC admitted that everywhere was significant presence of protesters, but when it came to meeting Obama and asking questions, these protesters are not present at all. And questions are all were sounding like "How come this long awaited reform is so good?".

Usually I do not pay too much attention to the emails from somebody I don't know (no disrespect!), but this one makes perfect sense to me and fits to everything else I saw and heard from the media. This is how I would organize it too if my goal was to make this bill happen ;)

It seems more and more to me that the White House may perhaps
get a new paint job before this BO guy leaves. I'm thinking RED !

This is too much Inernet gack about this for me to credit it without the name of the writer and some additional evidence. As it stands it is not compelling, and is merely interesting.

Sounds like Obama is using the same event organizer that W. used. SSDP (same sh*t, different president).

This is B.S. a complete cover up. I guess what can you expect from a guy who sueed his way into the senate. Another thing that pisses me off is the spending the first lady acts like jackie O (which she will never be!!)and it's ok but when Palin did it was a scandal. They fired on Bush for all the spending, But when Obama the messiah does it it the best thing that ever happened to this country. You know when Truman took office, the White house was a wreack from all the years of neglect during the Depression. But now Money is like water. :mad::mad::mad:

Good manners in Obama's Montana audience
(AP) Aug 14, 2009
BELGRADE, Mont. President Barack Obama faced a polite audience in Montana on Friday despite a selection method that might have let more protesters get inside.

Obama was confronted with no hostility during his second town-hall discussion of the week on his proposed health care overhaul.

The vast majority of the 1,300 tickets for the event in a tarmac hangar were distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, some from Belgrade City Hall and the rest from City Hall in the larger nearby town of Bozeman. A few tickets were distributed by the White House to elected officials, community leaders and local supporters.

For Obama's town hall meeting in New Hampshire on Tuesday, the system was also aimed at being general admission, but constructed a little differently. The vast majority of those tickets were distributed by an online lottery that made computerized random choices several days ahead of time from among those registering to get them.

There was some thought that the first-come, first-served method might give protesters a bigger chance of getting inside, because they could organize to show up early. With Montana such a reliably Republican region, expectations were high that Friday's discussion would be more contentious than Tuesday's.

It wasn't.

This of course is bleedingly awful reporting by the AP. Nothing new here. They probably got this cleared by the white house first.

You are wasting your breath trying to convince Calguns liberals what you see happening in Obama's America it is very similar to what you've been through in the former USSR.
Believe me, I tried that and the only reaction I had from them was bouts of hate and repeat calls for my OT Forum banishment. These people don't like to hear the truth and don't want to know about anything that could shake their deep ingrained socialist convictions.

Hum... I don't know if I believe everything in that email but it makes sense to me. That Montana town hall was far too quiet even for a regular town hall meeting anywhere, about anything half as controversial. I'm inclined to believe that something along the lines of what the email says, happened. [/subjectivity]

I would like to see something that will corroborate this email. It's certainly pretty detailed but that doesn't much mean it's accurate one way or another; however, there is a lot of appealing to people who would know, without any real identification or concrete base that can be verified which is often the mark of a fabricated story.

I find it funny that you have to get a permit from the government to protest. These are the same ***holes you are protesting against. We are not in the United States of America any more. If we don't stand up soon and do something about it, all will be lost. Wake up American sheeple.

Just look at the Thread on Mexican Cartels. Yet when you metion the should move to a country where it's legal to do their drugs the get mad too. You just can't help Librals/progressives/socialists or whatever the hell they call themselves.

Thank Cheney/Bush for that. If you just noticed it now, you only have yourself to blame. As an aside, I completely agree that Obama loses credibility every time he perpetuates those neocon policies.
