Obama visit to Montana

Hello All,
 
 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 Joe and I live here and we were at the
 airport on Friday I should share some facts with you. Whatever you
 decide to do with the information is up to you. If you chose to share
 this email with others I do ask that you DELETE my email address before

 you forward this on.
 
 On Wednesday, August 5th it was announced locally that the President
 would be coming here. There are many groups here that are against his
 healthcare and huge spending so those groups began talking and deciding
 on what they were going to do. The White House would not release ANY
 details other than the date.
 
 On about Tuesday Joe found out that they would be holding the “Town
 Hall” at the airport. (This is only because Joe knows EVERYONE at the
 airport) Our airport is actually located outside of Belgrade (tiny town)
 in a very remote 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 the public.
 FYI: We have many areas in Belgrade and Bozeman which could have held a
 large amount of folks with sufficient parking. (gymnasiums/auditoriums).
 All of which have chairs and tables, and would not have to be SHIPPED
 IN!! $$$$$
 During the week, cargo by the TONS was being shipped in constantly.
 Airport employees could not believe how it just kept coming. Though it
 was our President coming several expressed how excessive it was,
 especially during a recession. $$$$$
 
 Late Tuesday/early Wednesday the 12th, they said that tickets would be
 handed out on Thursday 9am at two locations and the president would be
 arriving around 12:30 Friday.
 
 Thursday morning about 600 tickets were passed out. However, 1500 were
 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 help out 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 Joe and I 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 make trouble
 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 and they 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 and walking 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 their DOGS with homemade signs. We had cowboys, nurses,
 doctors you name it. There was even a guy from Texas who had been
 driving through. He found out about the occasion, went to the store,
 made a sign, and came to protest.
 
 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 the crowds.
 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 to the 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. Joe and I 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. Scary!!
