Letter from cousin living in Montana; Describes Obama "Town Hall Meeting"...

8/22/2009: Letter from cousin living in Montana; Describes Obama "Town Hall Meeting"
( NOTE: This is a real letter sent to me this morning from my cousin living in Montana.)

Hello "XXXXXXX",

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 Bill 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 Bill found out that they would be holding the "Town
Hall" at the airport. (This is only because Bill 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
printed at a Local printing shop per White House request.
Hmmmm......900 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 Bill 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

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. Bill 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!!
