Local Democrats plan to greet Billy Long Saturday

(From Southwest Missouri Democrats and Indivisible Joplin)

Date: Saturday, March 4, 2016
Time: 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Location: Joplin Convention & Trade Center, 3535 Hammons Blvd, Joplin MO 64804


For weeks constituents in MO 7th district have asked Rep Long to hold a town hall meeting to discuss his policy positions. His repeated failure to schedule a town hall points to one unavoidable conclusion: Billy Long is missing. Help us find him!

It's been reported that Rep. Long will be a speaker at the upcoming Joplin Lincoln Days, held on March 4th. We will be out front awaiting our chance to ask him questions. Join with Indivisible Joplin: Plan MO, and Southwest Missouri Democrats as we plead with Rep. Billy Long to host a Town Hall!

Nanda Nunnelly-Sparks, the organizer of Indivisible Joplin, explains, “Our Indivisible group is committed to urging Rep. Billy Long to recognize us as his constituents and to hold a Town Hall meeting; because the US Congress is the People’s House!”

Krista Stark, Executive Director of SWMO Democrats, adds, “We have had many of our members call Representative Long’s Joplin and Springfield Offices to request a Town Hall or a meeting with our Congressman over the Affordable Care Act, concerns over the current administrations appointees, or conflicts of interests. We have been told by staff that they do not feel a Town Hall will be productive. We cannot imagine anything more productive than a Congressman meeting with the People of his district.”

***Bring your own sign or make one at the March Indivisible meeting! Wednesday March 1 at 6pm at A Woman's Place located at 809 Langston Hughes Broadway in Joplin, MO.

What was on Billy's tie at Trump's speech? It was cartoonish, either Family Guy or The Little Mermaid?

Trump just can't stop lying! The Liar said people are pouring across the Mexican border when in fact illegal immigration is at its lowest levels since 1972, excepting 2011, you know when Obama was President. The Liar said drugs are coming into this country from Mexico and ruining people's lives. The fact is most of the drugs responsible for the opiod crisis, are prescriptions from doctors. Missouri refuses to monitor opiod prescriptions. Drugs seized at the border were decreasing each year President Obama held office.

Trump is alienating our neighbors to the south to seek trade deals, business, and support from our enemies. Does he plan to do the same for Canada or is he just racist? His handlers, last night, tried to put lipstick on a pig, but Trump is still a lying pig. Billy Long is just a pig ready for market, a 300 pound boar with no taste.

Town Halls are great, and I believe Congressman Long actually likes them; but George Soros sends well paid thugs to all the Republican ones to incite violence and disrupt them.

After that magnificent performance by President Trump( the stock market liked it), Congressman Long can gain from the association; but again the Obama Clinton faction is intent on disruption and disingenuiouness!!

Disruption? How is this any different from what the Tea Party did at town halls a few years ago? Or was that OK because it was the Tea Party?

Thank you, Harvey. You've given me the last nudge I needed to show up Saturday and deliver a message to Billy, that I am a local guy, protesting for free.

There's an election next year, you can ask him anything; or better yet-- file and run yourself

Harvey, how many townhalls has Billy had since he took office?

Poor little Harvey. He believes what he is told to believe and evidently can't understand what he is reading or hearing. Just as long as the person has an (R) by their name they must be the greatest thing since uneducated rednecks. Ethics and morals have evidently lost their meaning with your party. Pedal your partisan politics somewhere else little harvey. By the way.... are the Koch brothers paying you? Some of us believe in the constitution and will exercise our right to free speech without having to be paid for it thank you very much.

Gee, Harvey - I didn't get my check from Soros for meeting with other NONPARTISAN people who are asking for a town hall (PLEASE!) meeting. Stood beside Range Line for two hours and no money was handed to me.

That's what Democracy looks and sounds like. We taxpayers are his employers, he needs to answer our questions in a requested meeting! Why NOT?
