Interesting how much of this news isn't covered.



In Tennessee, one woman was so angry at a lawmaker’s vote in favor of the health care bill that she tried to run him off the road, according to police.

While yes, she's being charged, I haven't seen this covered anywhere.
Why?

Apparently violence against Republicans isn't news worthy.

What I see as the bigger issue here is that the public feels that the ruling class is so apathetic toward to the common man's needs that public is reacting more and more virulently. IMHO, this will get worse before it gets better.

This is the new normal now.

They can't debate, so they harm, break things, get violent.

Unfortunately, I think you're correct that it will get worse before better.
Interestingly, I believe the majority of Americans aren't that far apart on what we want.

The media plays the hard right and hard left against each other, and then we all pick sides.
It's a sad state of affairs.

I know, like little children holding their breath until they get what they want.

Amen.

The true disagreement should between we peons and the ruling classes. We allow politicians to lie through their teeth, the enter public service middle classed and leave wealthy, they vote against their own constituencies and still we reelect them based on the letter after their name. We allow the wealthy elite to take huge amounts of public funds, eliminate all of the gains made during the labor movement's hay day, take larger and larger bonuses, out source our jobs to slave labor and we continue to spend all of our money on useless, unneeded items or things with built in poison pills. Example, my mother has the same mattress that my parents bought when they were first married, over 50 years ago. Since my wife and I have been married we've had 5 mattresses. We've been married 21 years.

Yet, we are forced to choose sides.
Many in my family are quite conservative, yet vote blue because they are union members.
I tend to vote red, yet I am so much more "liberal" on some things.
It's just crazy when you consider how similar most of us are, yet it seems we're just about ready to go to war.
Over what?
We've all been played, forced to choose teams, and defend our team, right or wrong.

I've seen it on Yahoo News earlier today...
Perhaps it was self defense?
She might have seen that the idiot was directly threatening the health care of her and her family by his vote.
Self defense! *__-

We are on the same page. This was the first election since I gained majority that I voted 3rd party. I just couldn't stomach voting for either of the main party candidates. I don't even care what the candidate's policies are anymore, I want to vote for someone who will go against the system. I'm really beginning to believe we need to blow the whole thing up.
