WTF Indeed

"I don't understand why the people who have stuff are enraged and the people who have nothing are warm and hopeful."

Speaking of those town hall meetings, throughout eight years of an administration that demonstrably broke US laws, liberals were consistently called treasonous for daring to say aloud that, um, the President is not above the law. Meanwhile, we have people doing this, and they get to cling to the patriot label?

Yes, the gentleman in the video clip is exercising his Second Amendment right (does one person count as a well regulated militia?). Yay for him. What isn't addressed in the clip is that his sign says, "It's time to water the tree of liberty." The particular Thomas Jefferson quote that's being referenced is, "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants." Call me crazy, but that sounds a lot like threatening the President (or others or himself). This is about healthcare people. And we were the crazy angry ones?
