a health care protester in New Mexico had been encouraging those following him on Twitter to bring their guns to town hall meetings — and use them if provoked.
“If ACORN/SEIU attends these meetings for disruptive purposes, and you have a license to carry….carry,” Scott Oskay wrote in one tweet. In another, he suggested, “Stop being peaceful, and hurt them. Badly.”
One of the leaders behind those organized efforts is Mr. Rick Scott, a former hospital CEO. He is using his own money and founding from his supporters to run the Conservatives for Patient's Rights movement. He and his supporters are strongly opposing the proposed health care reform put together by the Obama administration. One thing everyone should know about Mr. Scott is that the company that he founded and worked for for many years was fined 1.7 billion dollars in fines, after an investigation into it's illegal practices of over billing state and federal health plans. That is not a mistake, the figure is 1 point seven billion, with a "b", in fines. That is by far the largest fine ever imposed on hospitals.

(1) Politically inspired name calling of an ideological group is not allowed: examples: "Loonie Libs," "Obamaites," "Repuglicans," etc.
Its organized. There is no question about it. The goal is to so obstruct the process that it cannot go forward and like most right wing strategies of late it is going to blow up in their faces.
Insanely stupid people say and do insanely stupid things. This is just the latest example.

Doesn't this sound suspicious? Sounds like some group attempting to discredit the protesters.
It looks like a setup and smells like a setup, sounds like a setup. Might it be a setup?
Who would be behind such proclamations of violence?
