It is protest day, for the Left and the Right, on Capitol Hill.
First out of the gate - 9 Protesters backing a universal health care system briefly occupied Sen. Joe Lieberman's office this morning.
Protesters were arrested, one by one, and dragged out of his office amid chants of "Everyone in and no one out, universal healthcare now!" and "Represent Connecticut, not AETNA!"
The whole affair, from occupation to final arrest, lasted 40 minutes.
Maybe its just us but that war cry: “Everybody in and Nobody out!” has got to be the worst political sloganeering of all time.
The liberal-Left, they of the former “Keep your politics off my body” form of governance have been pushing government-managed healthcare for years and that is the best they could come up with?
It has such a totalitarian anti-choice ring to it, no?
But why stop there – why not just strip bare the veneer of inclusiveness and expose the statist mentality for what it is?
“If you love going to the dentist, you’ll absolutely cherish Obamacare”
“Healthcare: whether you like it or not”
“Healthcare: we’re from the government – now where was it that you needed surgery?”
“Healthcare: Now shut up and get into that boxcar!”
We welcome other pithy slogans from our readers.
