White House Asking You to Turn in Your Neighbor

On the White House Blog yesterday.

There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.

The blogosphere naturally has gone wild, including in their comment sections. These are just a few samples. Of course there are many more.

Nice to see dailypaul linked on here!

What a joke. I can't wait until they start offering a cash reward (taxpayer funded of couse) for turning in your republican neighbors.
I can see it already:

"Click here to sign up your neighbor for our forced re-education camp"

Obama is compiling an enemy of the State list to go with all those Czars 44 at last count.

I notice comments have dropped down. Has everyone already headed to the bunkers?

Perhaps people are afraid to comment. After all, we now know for sure that Big Brother IS watching!

The Democrats are making the McCarthy Era look carefree.

As this action threatens free speech, would it be grounds for impeachment? Maybe we will not have to wait for the criminal investigation of ACORN.

Stupid actions from the White House such as this is only equaled by trying to put out a fire with gasoline.

First, a provision of the House version of the healthcare bill entitles the government to access your bank account to pay for the healthcare it thinks you should have and now a snitch program! The silence from the ACLU is deafening. I do so miss the Constitution!

This explains where POV is today. He is busy trying to get on the site to turn everyone in. I may change my screen name to "IHateAmericaToo" as a cover.

Reader said...

You are probably right Sark.

Now angry Americans are being called organized mobs.

Sark,
I couldn't refuse the offer from the white house to turn you in for beer money for the weekend.

Nothing personal I hope. Feds should be at your door tomorrow.

RT Sender,
I agree about the constitution. I tend to day dream some times and think of what it would be like if we actually governed by it.

Sarkazein said...

Matt- that's probably quite a bit of money, you would be increasing the deficit by a lot.

matt said...

Sark,
I figured I might as well make my share of the deficit worth it.
I promise you it will provide a better return than the millions spent on the national quilt museum.

How dare they! Let's not challenge Republic propaganda! Let the Republics shape public opinion with distortions and lies which must NOT be answered! Bus in those protesters! Disrupt those town hall meetings! Hand out those pre-printed signs! Follow the Republic bosses and don't think of evaluating opposing evidence.

GOP Uber Alles!

Sarkazein said...

Matt-

Or the $250Million spent for luxury military jets for for the Democrats who worry about carbon out-put and executives using jets.

As many times as Bush was called a Nazi by the left, I find this whole thing very hypocritical. I love my country but I fear my government.

That was somewhat true under the Bush admin, it is becoming more so with this current crew. They look more like a politburo and less like American legislators every day.

guy faulkes said...

Mr. Obama has gotten himself in another fine mess. There is a federal statue created during the Nixon administration that keeps the Executive branch from compiling the names and comments of citizens that oppose the administration's viewpoints. Thee is another federal statue that says all correspondence sent to the Executive branch has to be retained. By asking for "fishy" information and receiving reports of it, Mr. Obama has to be in violation of one or the other of these statues. The question then becomes as to whether this constitutes high crimes and misdemeanors.

Here are some mobsters with fishy comments for POV and BB to turn in to their smack daddy.

Our ever watchful, the lovely Michelle Malkin is on it as usual:

Who is behind the snitch bregade?

Blogger said...

BikerBard. This is the White House doing it. Not your side. Napolitano points out that when Nixon started taking pictures of the Viet Nam protesters, the Supreme Court ruled it illegal and the Congress followed suit.

The White House is breaking the law!!

What would you have said if Bush had done this?

Business as usual. Yeh. I'll bet that would be all you would have said.

Everyone should turn their self in. Tell them to put my name at the top of the list.

"I love my country but I fear my government."

On the news, I saw that batshit wack-o lady crying the EXACT same line at a recent town meeting.

Do you guys memorize a script or just parrot a wack-o you emulate?

VIVA REVOLUTION.

One of our fore fathers said something like this - "The Tree of liberty must be watered the blood of tyrants and patriots"

Perhaps our weakness has lead to the creation of the 4th Reich...2012 another false election. Health care does not need nearly as much reform as the lying and thieving government.

haha i bet i get turned in for this.

Cincinnatus said...

Bard,
Virginia Fox is not my representative so there is no reason that I would be at her town hall meeting or parrot her talking points.

Other than JW's relentless hammering of the woman on WW, I don't know a whole lot about her.

Blogger said...

Cincinnatus, I have known Virginia Foxx personally for nearly 40 years. We are so fortunate that we don't have to have protests. As long as I have known her, she has yet to disappoint me.

A number of organizations ask us to write our representative. But, I never really need to as everything she does is right.

So all I ever have to write to her from time to time is just to say "Thanks!"

USS Rodger Young said...

Cincinnati,

You don't know much about Virginia Foxx. Here is a little something for you (this was deleted by Watauga Conservative site administrators last time, so listen up). Foxx and gang (Aaron Whitener) are the ones who cooked up the Blowing Rock Land Exchange. The Town of Blowing Rock bought 192 acres to protect the scenic views of one Barbara Ball - liberal councilwoman who owns a 1.3 million dollar home overlooking the 192 acres. Blowing Rock spent half a million of taxpayer money on land they didn't even know they could trade to the Park Service - they just did it without anyone even knowing it had been done (did you know?)

When called on the carpet by local sportsmen, they panicked and ran to Virginia Foxx who brokered a yet unknown deal with them (Keith Tester, towncouncilman, is reputedly a cousin of Foxx). She met with them in secret on March 20and the following month introduced HR 1121 to the House of Representatives. Locals had no voice in the secret land exchange, and Virginia Foxx refused to meet with the very constituancy who voted her in office time and time again (gun owners). Aaron Whitener was the go between and off-lined the locals until Foxx could get her bill into the House proper. After the bill was introduced, Aaron suddenly excused himself from any further contact with locals. The unbelievable conflict of interest was ignored as were the voices of locals who wanted a say so in how their tax dollars were being spent.

At any rate, Watauga Watch, as much as they hate Foxx, wouldn't touch the issue because it encompassed topics such as hunting and the 2nd Amendment. This is a prime example of why Watauga Watch is no more than a semi public forum for liberal socialist sheep to yap and banter about small fry issues. Give them something to really fry Foxx with and they run.

2010 will be interesting for Foxx who will have to answer to the 2nd Amendment crowd on how she betrayed them twice (the other being her vote against the Credit Card Bill which had concealed carry in National Parks attached). Foxx and Whitener have been confronted twice in public forums over their actions on the land exchange and didn't like it one bit. Ask about it sometime and see what type of response you get!!

This ought to get interesting.

Your ole pal

USS Rodger Young


PS Biker Lard isn't smart enough to see he has a hat hanger with this one.

Blogger said...

USS Don't have a clue what you are talking about on HR 1121. All I could find out was whatever 1121 is, the vote was Aye: 377 to no 0.

Most of all though, I am sorry I participated in letting this post get off point. Especially, because it involves the most alarming threat I have ever heard of in my life.

Cincinnatus said...

Blogger,

I appreciate hearing another point of few on representative Fox. Good Lord willing I will be able to move into Watauga County this year and then she will be my representative.

I was just trying to be polite with Bard. I don't have any beef with anyone on either site and I learn alog from reading this site and WW also.

USS Rodger Young said...

Blogger,

It seems as if you have something against posts that tell the truth about the liberal Congresswoman Foxx. And you also seem to agree with HR 1121 in light of the severe conflict of interest associated with the bill.

As for the most alarming threat you have ever read on this site, please explain. I read, and re-read the USS Rodger Young post three times and cannot see any alarming threat contained theirein. As a matter of fact, it all looks about as passive as you can get if you discount the illegal activity associated with the land trade. Please qualify what you percieve to be a threat. I do not follow you here as I am a pacifist.

Cindy

Obamas wife said she was for the first time proud to be an American, For the first time Im afraid to be an American. The government now seem to be operating like the Mafia. They try to turn everything into the Republicans fault with misinformation. I think I probably will have to vote Republican nest time. I can no longer stand the blatent lies coming from the curret government.

Blogger said...

CNN just ran a special on universal healthcare in Cuba. In it, they said, Cuban doctors are paid $30 a day.

Because under Obama's Socialized medicine plan, we will not have anywhere close to enough doctors, we can steal them from Cuba by offering them a little more pay.

Of course, I don't know how good a $30 a day doctor will be.

guy faulkes said...

Blogger, I am confused. What is the threat to which you are referring? Having followed the Blowing Rock land trade issue fairly closely, Rodger Young has many valid points. It is his opinion Ms. Foxx turned her back on hunters and gun owners. He feels they should remember this at the ballot box. Certainly you have no problem with that do you?

Gregg said...

Guy and USS,

I believe the threat Blogger is referring to is the "White House asking you to your turn in your neighbor".
