Democratic Lawmaker tells Americans: ‘Quit Complaining’ November 21, 2009

Posted by bigworldcentral in Health Care, Politics, USA News.

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (Missouri) has called for ‘Quit Complaining Wednesday’ next week a day before the Thanksgiving holiday. Americans are voicing their concerns about the Health Reform, the wars in the Middle east, and the economy. BWC’s question is, these Americans are expressing their 1st Amendment rights, so why tell them to be quiet? Polls do show majority of the Americans are against Health Care, and some are disapproving of Mr. Obama’s polices. Rep. Cleaver went on to say;

“From time to time, we all experience anxiety, frustration, stress, and regret. And often, we respond to these feelings with a criticism or complaining,” Cleaver wrote to his colleagues, seeking co-sponsors. “Regrettably, complaining keeps people stuck on current problems, inhibiting them from thinking constructively to find solutions. Research has also shown that complaining can be harmful to one’s emotional and physical health, relationships and can limit professional career success.”

Conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart, owner and founder of Breitbart.com calls this “silly” as expressed on Biggovernment.com. Rep. Cleaver’s spokesman said this is no way shape or form is attacking first amendment rights, but I beg to differ.

What do you think about this? Is it okay? Is it taking away first Amendment rights? You decide.
