    Got an email from someone who lives in Bozeman and this was their experience trying to get to the Town Hall.

    Long story short, local were barred so SEIU people could be shipped in

    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 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 B elgrade 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 costing taxpayer $$$$$.

    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 9 am at20two 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 10:45 am. 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

    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. Bill and I have been around when Presidents or=2 0Heads 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

    I'm not shocked at all, it's par for the course with this gang of thugs to include the President.
