The tea baggers are taking their cues and shutting down our democracy -again. They did it in 2000. Now they are doing it with healthcare reform. They tell Chris Dodd to cmmit suicide. They physically threaten dem congress persons. Tonight we learn of death threats against Rep Miller of NC just for wanting to host a townall. The police are involved and its deemed too dangerous to go on with t he event. Tommorrow we have a chance to tell these people no!

Dem Congressman's Office: His Life Has Been Threatened Over Health Care Bill
By Eric Kleefeld - August 5, 2009, 5:54PM
Rep. Brad Miller (D-NC) will not be hosting any town hall events this August -- instead, he's making himself available to constituents for one-on-one meetings about health care reform -- and at least part of the reason is this: His offices have received threatening phone calls, including at least one direct threat against his life.
"We had no town hall events scheduled for the August recess anyway, but in light of everything that's happened -- we have received a threatening phone call in the D.C. office, there have been calls to the Raleigh office," said Miller communications director LuAnn Canipe, in an interview with TPM. The threatening call in question happened earlier this week.
They haven't heard anything back from the police yet, but they did get the caller's number. So this could develop into something soon enough.

Congressman Gene Green of Houston had a town hall-notice a pattern-and faced boos, howls and threats. And luckily the reporter asked how many were actually living in his dsitrict. Turns out not many. The tea baggers drove in like they did for Tom DeLay in the 2000 Florida coup.
