Tue Aug 18 2009 (Updated 08/19/09)Activists for Health Care Reform Offer Counseling at San Jose "Tea Party"
On August 15th activists for health care reform faced off with right wing "tea party" demonstrators for the the third time since April in San Jose. Members of the Raging Grannies Action League offered anger management counseling from a booth they set up at the busy intersection in front of Barnes and Noble Books where Sen. Barbara Boxer made a brief appearance to sign her second novel Blind Trust. A second portable booth was manned by a Lucy van Pelt look-alike who offered free psychiatric help, reduced from the price of five cents, striking a chord with anyone familiar with the Peanuts comic strip.
About 20 activists for health care reform, including members of Veterans for Peace, carried signs supporting a Single Payer health care plan. About 100 right-wing activists carried signs denouncing Sen. Boxer's stand on health care reform. Some wore t-shirts saying "Another Patriot Bitterly Clinging to Guns and Religion".
A spokesperson for the Raging Grannies said that the group plans to take their anger management counseling on the road to congressional recess town halls in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties.
