This summer, we've seen anti-health care reform activists with hysterical
allegations of death camps, equating Obama with Hitler and Stalin.  Where do
they come from, and why do they hate and fear President Obama so?  What is
the current status of health care reform - is there anything left in the
bills that is good enough to support?  What is an activist to do?

Free, and open to the public.
