Dems hijacked meeting

Wow! What a rude mob. I attended Congressman Doolittle’s town hall meeting on March 29th. Packed with liberal Democrats, it reminded me of supervisor’s meetings on controversial issues.

The room was filled with many people wearing identical T-shirts and badges with slogans. The topic was Social Security and possible long-term solutions to fix it.

It was unfortunate that they were having so much trouble with their sound system because it was impossible to hear all the questions and answers. The unruly and highly vocal crowd made it doubly difficult to hear what was said along with the intermittent sound system.

What I did understand was that many participants wanted lots of benefits, no cap on upper end contributions (taxes), and means testing to curtail or eliminate benefits for those who may retire with assets of their own. I call this a “re-distribution of wealth” like in a socialist society. Perhaps that’s why they call it “Social Security.”

After the meeting I tried to find where they parked the buses with Berkeley license plates so I could get a picture. I couldn’t find them.
