This is from a Bozeman resident that weknow!!! This country is in suchbig trouble. . .. .
By now you have probably heard that President Obama came to Montana last Friday.However, there are many things that the major news has not covered. I feel that since we live here and we were atthe airport on Friday I should share some facts with you. Whatever you decide to do with the information isup to you. If you chose to share this email with others I do ask that you DELETE my email address before you forward thison.
On Wednesday, August 5th it was announced locally that the President would becoming here. There are many groups here that are against his healthcare and huge spending so those groups began talkingand deciding on what they were going to do. The White House would not release ANY details other than thedate.
On about Tuesday we found out that they would be holding the "TownHall" at the airport. Our airport is actually located outside of Belgrade (tiny town) in a veryremote 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 thepublic.
FYI: We have many areas in Belgrade and Bozeman which could have held a large amount offolks with sufficient parking. (gymnasiums/auditoriums). All of which have chairs and tables, and would not have to beSHIPPED IN!! $$$$$
During the week, cargo by the TONS was being shipped inconstantly. Airport employees could not believe how it just kept coming. Though it was our President coming severalexpressed how excessive it was, especially during a recession. $$$$$
Late Tuesday/earlyWednesday the 12th, they said that tickets would be handed out on Thursday 9am at two locations and thepresident would be arriving around 12:30 Friday.Thursday morning about 600 tickets were passed out. However, 1500 were printed at a Localprinting shop per White House request. Hmmmm......900 tickets just DISAPPEARED.
This same morning someone called into the radio from the local UPS branch and said that THOUSANDS of Dollars of Lobster were shipped in for Obama. Montana has some of the best beef in the nation!!! And it would have been really wonderful to helpout the local economy. Anyone heard of the Recession?? Just think...with all of the traveling the White House is doing. $$$$$ One can only imagine what else we are paying for.
On Friday we 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 maketrouble and start a fight. Police did get involved and arrested the one man but they said they did not have the manpower to remove the SEIU crowd.\
The SEIU crowd was very organized and young. About 99% were under the age of 30 andthey 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 andwalking 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 theirDOGS with homemade signs. We had cowboys, nurses, doctors you name it. There was even a guy from Texas who had beendriving through. He found out about the occasion, went to the store, made a sign, and came toprotest.
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 thecrowds. 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 tothe 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. We 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.
