I saw on the Internets that the group Americans for Responsible Patriotism to Save Our Seniors and Your Third Amendment Rights™ ( says Congressman John Boehner, (R-OH) may still beat his wife, and say we can do something about it!  They (ARPSSYTAR) say they have documents from the County of Columbus Forestry Police showing Mr Boehner was cited (on at least two occasions) for cutting down protected trees to "make a switch for my wife!"  I have yet to see anything on Congressman Boehner's website saying he has stopped, so it's reasonable to assume that this horrible behavior continues.

What does this mean to you and me and all Americans for Responsible Patriotism to Save Our Seniors and Your Third Amendment Rights™?


We need to confront Congressman Boehner at his Town Hall meetings!  To quote one of the leaders of our own United States Congress: We need to turn them into Town Hell meetings!(1)   That's right.  We need to go to Boehner Town Hall meetings and insist he answer the question:Do you still beat your wife??

Another leading congressman, Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX) instructs us that the time for civil town hall meetings is now over.  We need to "'pack the hall with as many of our people ready to challenge the Congressman, put him on the defensive, and give him a reality check from we-the-people"(2)  Ask questions that would apply to any wife-beating Republican.  Sign up for as many question slots as possible.  Ask the congressman specific, pointed questions about wife beating (What method do you find most effective?  Which do you do more, verbal or physical abuse?  And, of course, Do you still beat your wife?)

When Mr Boehner tries to deflect these questions with obfuscations or changing the subject, you should have a cadre of like-minded patriots (30 is a good number) ready to shout demands that he answer the question.  A "spontaneous" chant of "Yes or No!  Yes or No!" will be very effective.  If anyone stands to defend the congressman, shout them down, ask if they also beat their wife.

These meetings with our congressmen are too important to allow them to decide what issues to talk about.  We don't need their drivel about taxes, or balanced bidgets, or improving education.  The ARPRSSYTAR tells us this is just too important an issue to allow anyone to engage in "open discussion."  We need to make sure the message gets out, and that these meetings will not continue if the Congressman doesn't give us answers, and the answers we want!!

So, Representative John Boehner, Do you STILL beat your wife?

God bless America
God bless our Third Amendment Rights

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
