I flagged myself: My name is Susan __. I am a citizen of the Untied States. I do not want the government to further insinuate itself into the our health care system. I demand the freedom of choice enter into arrangements with private insurers for me and my family. At every opportunity I am speaking against the president's plans to incrementally do away with private insurance and take over this country's medical system.

I am a vehement opponent of the president's "reforms." I am not a shill for the insurance companies, though I am thought to be shrill. I'm flagging myself to save others the trouble.

Shame on you all for asking that we tattle on one another.

This is so typical of the Liberal mind. They don't want the gov't listening in on phone calls, but calling for citizens to snitch on one another, that they can justify.


The GOP should use the exact same phrase that appears at thte end of this video in GOP ads.

Show videos of the crooks, and cronies in the DNC Admin doing their typical lying, bullying, and intimidating and end with...
Vote GOP
Tell them you've had enough of the MOB.


My flag:

In response to your request that Americans report opposition to the President's proposed reforms to the American Health Care system, I must save your minions the trouble and turn myself in. I am one of the uninsured that President Obama loves to use to sell his idea. I am uninsured by choice. Given my age and level of health, insurance is simply a bad investment for me at this time. Perhaps the phrase "Not in my name" rings a bell with someone there in your office. I believe that this government interference in the health care industry will cause irreparable harm, because that is what has always happened everywhere it has been tried and in every other case the government involves itself in business. Furthermore, I question the government's authority to interfere in private contracts between consenting individuals (which corporations are, from a legal standpoint). Over the last 220 years, Americans have watched as the federal government has taken upon itself power and authority that it was never intended to have, and was specifically forbidden from taking. I am an adult. I have an adult mother. I do not need, or want, the government to take care of me.


I've turned myself in many times. I sent some of my spam email to them. I sent videos from YouTube. I have just been flooding their email address. I started yesterday afternoon and I have continued today. I hope it crashes!


Can't seem to get trackback to typepad to work.

I'm sorry; I didn't know there was another Susan posting when I posted at 2:45. I will change my name to SusanK. In several of my emails, I told them to send in their brownshirts. It would probably be some Acorn nuts or Black Panthers. But, I'll be ready. After all, I'm one of those people that clings to my guns and my Bible. And, I live in the South, where we are allowed to have guns and to use them on intruders. I'm know I'm being facetious, but you never know.

I sent them this classic fishy item from Monty Python:

Hello, I would like to buy a fish license, please.

A what?

A license for my pet fish, Eric.

How did you know my name was Eric?

No no no, my fish's name is Eric, Eric the fish. He's an halibut.



You've got a pet halibut?

Yes. I chose him out of thousands. I didn't like the others, they were all too flat.

You must be a looney.

I am not a looney! Why should I be tied with the epithet looney merely because I have a pet halibut? I've heard tell that Sir Gerald Nabardo has a pet prawn called Simon and you wouldn't call him a looney; furthermore, Dawn Pailthorpe, the lady show-jumper, had a clam, called Stafford, after the late Chancellor, Allan Bullock has two pikes, both called Chris, and Marcel Proust had an haddock! So, if you're calling the author of 'A la recherche du temps perdu' a looney, I shall have to ask you to step outside!

Alright, alright, alright. A license.


For a fish.


You are a looney.


Here was mine:

There's some crazy-ass blogger out there who posted a video wherein President Barack Obama seems to be advocating a single-payer system! You can find it here:

He also posted a link to other videos here:

He even tried to OVERTHROW THE GOVERNMENT by providing alternative solutions to the health care crisis here: and accuses President Barack Obama of using SCARE TACTICS here:

This guy should be arrested immediately, but a crazy guy like this won't be taken alive!

Peace and love under Barack,

I have flagged myself. I figure my kids are too lazy to do it for me, so it's my civic duty. I sent my two twitter addresses, from which they can get my facebook page and my blogs. I told them I would be happy to begin telling them each day what I intend to Tweet the next day, for their convenience. Have not heard back yet.


This is what I sent to

Hi - Is this where we can request a flag that has been flown over the White House?

Marisa Jones

I am appalled at the toxic rhetoric that your administration is spewing regarding the health care debate. I am one of those “misguided Brooks Brothers” wearing conservatives who is on a mission to defeat your health care reform.

Let’s talk about disinformation. The source of the “disinformation” appears to be coming straight from the horse’s mouth. What exactly is your plan President Obama? There is video quoting you endorsing a single payer system as well as wanting to eliminate private insurance companies. How can you back up your assertions that we get to keep our private insurance when you have been quoted saying the exact opposite? You are speaking out both sides of your mouth and I am tired of it. Therefore, this is why I am turning myself in to your administration. I am one of “those” people who are having casual conversations with anyone and everyone setting the record straight about the lies that are being spewed so freely by your state run media cronies.

For the first time in my adult life, I am frightened to be an American. (I think you’ve heard something similar to that before). I am frightened for my children, my America and my freedoms. I am a wife, a mother, and sister, and truthfully, it is my prerogative to explain the facts and tell the truth, and as they say, the truth shall set you free!

We do not need you meddling in our health care Mr. Obama. If it is so important for you socialize our health care, then socialize it for those who are uninsured and want coverage. We do not need your help. Unfortunately, I think this is the change you were talking about when you said you wanted to “fundamentally change America” when you were running for President. Frankly, Mr. Obama, you can keep your change. And keep your cotton picking hands off my health care too.

I turned myself in this morning and provided links to everything I've written about the healthcare takeover.

I ended my confession with a question:

Is there anything that can be done about this without violating the First Amendment protection of free speech?


I haven't turned myself in yet, but I did turn in one, Barack Obama Jr., for making several misleading and contradictory statements.

If also asked:
"Could you please release a handy chart as to which Obama pronoucements we are to consider the non-lying version at any particular point? Are American citizens to believe the August 2009 Obama, March 2009 Obama or the 2007 Obama and 2003 Obama? I know that Mr. Obama is used to blind faith from the recipients of his many largesse gifts with other people's money but to the rest of America it is getting difficult keeping the lies straight. Any assistance you might provide would be appreciated or should Americans simply assume that Mr. Obama is lying until proven otherwise?"

tim aka The Godless Heathen

Flagged myself -

Hello there, my name is Tim **** and I’m flagging myself for having a conversation today concerning Pres. Obama’s health care reform. When I decide to have any further conversations on said subject I will turn myself in at that time.

While you are privy to where I live, work, etcetera and probably more personal information than I care to think about, just for some giggles let’s review a couple things. I am a Honorably Discharged Veteran of the United States Marine Corps, law abiding, tax paying, hard working, forth generation American citizen who pays plenty for my private health insurance and which I want to remain the way it is, free from government take over.

Lastly, while I’m a registered Republican who did not vote for Pres. Obama, will never vote for another Democrat again in my life, I express these views of my own free will, no group, organization or person(s) has directed, paid or otherwise influenced me to think, talk or act in any certain way. If these views make me such a dangerous person that you need to monitor me so be it. But just remember that I and those who agree with me have on our side the Founding Fathers words, deeds and that little thing called the U.S. Constitution, which you obviously need to read.

Talk to ya’ soon, hugs and kisses.


Flagged myself--

Dear Whitehouse apparatchiks;

Perhaps the correct term for you would be Big Brother since your administration has some intriguingly Orwellian aspects to it.

Anyway, since President Obama has asked the American citizenry to report those private individuals they hear spreading "fishy" information about healthcare to the government, I thought I would save someone else the trouble of turning me in & do it first.

My name is Genifer & I believe that Obama's healthcare plan will lead to the degradation of our medical system, rationing of medical care based on the value some government bureaucrat places on the individual's life, limiting of access to experimental treatments because they haven't been "proven" to be cost effective. I believe claiming that our system will be just as good as Europe's is not a good thing since I've been there and had it take nearly 5 months to get a simple prescription authorized for refill. I believe President Obama is lying through his teeth when he claims that we will be able to keep our insurance and continue to see whatever doctor we choose.

FYI, I am spreading this "fishy" information all over Facebook, across my family, & in every internet forum I can find. And, since this is a patriotic duty (re: the MSM claim that opposing Obama is anti-American) I will also do my best to alert you whenever I find one of these fishy emails, video's or websites.

Thanks you for telling me how I can contribute to turning the USA into USSA. (Seriously, citizen informants? What brainiac thought this up?)


P.S. I'm a broke college student so if you accuse me of being part of a paid astro-turfing campaign, I will laugh myself unconscious.

(I was cranky. What can I say?)


I need a judgment call. I'm a Canadian who has opined at length about the idiocy of ObamaCare. Do i flag myself? Should I be flagged by an American? Should I flag Americans? What is the protocol here?



This is what I sent with the subject line "Something fishy"

The White House blog yesterday asked that we send you the rumors we hear.

I've heard "rumors" that congress members themselves are not willing to enroll in these government health plans they are creating. If a house member votes for this plan, they should enroll in it themselves. Pass HR 615. House members exempting themselves from this health care plan - yes, that is what is fishy. If it is good enough for the people, it should be good enough for them. Listen to the voice of the people instead of compiling an unconstitutional database of "enemies." The people are not enemies, they are who YOU are supposed to be working for.

Jodie Edwards


DO NOT send email to that address. I'll tell you why. Once they have your legit email address you will be hounded to no end and then the perps will have you email address on record. Think about that.
These people can't keep anything straight or secure so just imagine what could happen.

Kiril The Mad Macedonian

In the link with my name you can read my whole "Turn Myself In Post", if you choose.

I emailed them, then was inspired to do a Google for Bicycling For Socialism, for a post on my Bike Blog. ;-D

Also linked in my piece.

At noon I found myself the 4th highest result on BING, out of 300,000, for a weird search for TO REPORT FISHY COMMENTS REGARDING OBAMACARE someone in Ohio did. ;-D


Necromancer, They already have everyone's details, records, political donations, age etc. Our email addresses make no difference. If we want this to become like Iran, we can cower and wait for it to happen. Or we can put our names and our faces to our displeasure like the founding fathers did so long ago.



Necromancer, I really, really hope 0 DOES try to come after everyone who responds to this blatant act of government intimidation. Let them dig themselves in deeper. The American people are tired of being dictated to and need a solid reminder that WE are the ones in charge.


Rick, if you continue to update this? You are going to force me to turn you in.

Corky Engel

Here's what I sent to


I need to turn myself in. I've had several "fishy" thoughts about this whole "HealthCare" restructuring.

I've questioned its costs, its potential rationing, its exclusion of some members of this Administration/Congress and inclusion of non-citizens.

In short, I know these are "bad" thoughts. I see the need to report this.


Eugene Engel


To be successful, this operation will have to never let up, until Obama is out. Because they will probably count on Operation Go Flag yourself to die down eventually, leaving a useful program in place for themselves.

Never stop, until Obama and others of that ilk are no more!


May I take back my last comment? Because I just realized that Operation Go Flag Yourself is a horrible idea!

It is one thing to flood a government office with useless information, but this Operation involves flooding the government with just the sort of information they are seeking. Do you think for one moment that they will shut down operations because of too much good information? No, they have unlimited funds, and they will simply buy more equipment able to handle a larger database.


I sent the following email to the snitch address:

Bless me, Father Obama, for I have sinned. It's been 39 years since my last confession. I confess that I had relations, I mean, conversations with/about Obamacare. And I watched a video from some Canadian dude who exposed Canadian healthcare as the nightmare that it is. I repent and will turn from my wicked ways. Until tomorrow.

Right wing extremist

I'm sure I'll have another confession tomorrow.


Can someone read the first line on this link and see if it's garmmatically correct!

Use of two "with" in the first sentence doesn't seem right to me.


sorry, forgot the link:


To Those who are expressing fear,

If all you care about is your own hide you are no better that Commander Zero.

I haven't had this much fun since setting up ambushes in 'Nam.

Let 'em come!

I've sent 3 so far. the first was rather like most. the second was to ask if "patriotic dissent" as exercised during the previous administration was still allowed. And whether or not the 1st Amendment had been suspended.

The third was that I told the CZAR I had BCC to a rather large list and that I included links to sites like this.

Courage is not the absence of fear. It is the overcoming of fear and doing the right thing.



This is what I wrote to the Brown Shirts.

I have blogged and spoke out against change, hope and Healthcare, er, Health Insura???? Healthcare reform. Cap and Tax, the Stimulus, and all the other hairbrained Marxist schemes you have come up with to subjugate us with. I quote Ronald Reagan and Thomas Paine daily. I read Drudge and listen to Rush and Hannity. I feel as a good snitch I must report myself to you!

"Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it."

I reported obama to himself. This is my email:

Dear Mr. President:

I got this quote directly off your web page...
Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to

Go To Hell. I read the proposal, and the thing itself is "fishy"!

Michael F

Bless me Mr. President, for I have sinned. I've written to others, publicly about the fears I have over Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid reconstructing our healthcare system. I have participated in e-mail chains passing on quotes with page and paragraph references to HR 3200, I have wondered aloud, in public, why you seem to be in such a hurry to tear down a system that is the best in the world and with which I am very happy.

Please Mr. President help me understand the nuances in the seemingly diametrically opposed statements you have made in the past two or three years on the subject of healthcare, Please tell me the truth I need to see, mold me, help me understand, give me a sign.

Help me Barack Obama you're my only hope.


this is my email to " operation disinformation "

Mien Fuhrer
befour I turn in the thousands of my fellow Americans and myself I will need your guaranty that they and I will not be sent to re-education camps for the non believers of govt reformed health care or obamacare as the " right wing terrorists " call it

Thank You Comrades

Dear Leader,I most humbly ask your forgiveness for informing everyone I know and even those I don't know,about your ridiculous,debt filled,abortion funding,dictator-style healthcare/health insurance reform plan.(You haven't changed the name again yet,have you?)Please don't come for the children,they have no idea I have been exercising my First Amendment right to free speech by stating my own opinion and reading others' opinions of same.As for Great Grandma,if your insane plan passes,I am sure you will handle her in your own swift fashion and/or send her to a re-education center(run by a community organization,of course)whichever will be more cost-effective for the collective.As for me,I will continue to hide my radio and computer in a false-bottom cabinet and give refuge,in my attic,to my other fellow citizens,who believe your way of running my country,is total insanity!


I am writing to report myself I have been posting on Facebook regarding my thoughts on the proposed health care reform, and they are negative. I have had a number of casual conversations on the subject as well. Do you have some sort of helmet or device that can help me get rid of these unpatriotic thoughts? Perhaps a re-education camp/concentration camp I can turn myself into to learn "correct" thinking? I feel so guilty and unclean going against the mighty Obama administration's plan - I know deep down that dissent and disagreement are so unAmerican. I'm ashamed of myself - I've even called my representatives demanding that they read the bill and have a lengthy discussion before signing it, when really, who needs to read stuff if Obama has said it is good?

Oh, I know, maybe there's some special koolaid you have that could help me? Sadly, I may need a large quantity of it as my husband, parents, brother, sister-in-law, aunts, uncles, cousins, co-workers and friends have all also been doing the same fishy things. Having discussions they shouldn't have. Researching things they should just learn to trust. Noting that what is said today by the administration is not what was said before. I know I should ignore completely contradictory recorded statements, but I'm struggling with that on a daily basis. Maybe a patch would be more effect to help me see past this disinformation?

You've got to help me, I'm even going to be teaching these things in my young children if I can't get cured! I just can't stop myself from wanting to know the truth and forming my own opinions! Will this be covered under the ever-so-wonderful-that-will-save-us-all-including-the-economy-and can't-possibly-ever-have-any-problems-so-why-even-discuss-it-and-stop-bringing-up-those-old-interview-where-Obama-contradicts-himself Health Care Plan (ESWTWSUAITEACPEHAPSWEDIASBUTOIWOCHHCP for short)? I'm begging for the government to step in and save me from myself, you're the only ones with the power to completely control our lives and mold our thinking.

Help me, Obi-wan Obama, you're my only hope!


Here is my contribution:

To whom it may concern,

I am one more member of the conspiracy turning himself in for impure thoughts concerning the President's plan to "reform" healthcare. I don't trust it, or him, or you either.

So, I will go to your re-education camp. I will take your soma (morphine drip?) I will even march into your oven (but not quietly). Remember, "die gedanken sind frie"!

Subject: fishy health care reform

I am turning myself in, the presidents health care reform is nothing more than a takeover of the system. Leave my healthcare alone ! There is nothing in the constitution that says the American People are entitled to state provided healthcare.

I turned myself in this morning and i also turned in the website for posting the text of the HR3200 thereby providing fishy information about Health Care Reform that contradicts what the great O himself is saying.....oops now i have to go report myself again.


Dear Barack,

I’m writing to report “fishy” statements I saw on the web regarding the much needed Obama Health Care Plan. Well, I was reading one of my co-worker’s blog the other day and I saw that he wrote something about how your health care plan would cause rationing and long waits for critical treatments. I thought this sounded “fishy” so I asked him who he voted for in the election. He said John McCain! I then asked him if he believed in “Hope and Change” and your plan to “fundamentally transform this nation”. He said he did not! Ha! There you go right there! J'accuse! (that’s French for “I accuse” but you know that being a Harvard graduate)

So, I am writing to report him. His name is Jack Moeller and I don’t know his home address but he works with me here at the Home Depot in Plano, Texas. So, how does this work? Do, I need to lure him down a dark alley and point him out while your men drive up and whisk him away in a van? What will happen to him? I know that your administration does not condone torture *wink. But these are conservatives so we can look the other way . Are there re-education camps set up for this sort of thing? If not, perhaps you should consider it.

Also, I was wondering if there was any sort of reward for reporting someone. I would gladly do it for free for the movement, but if there is any sort of reward I wouldn’t turn it down. Perhaps a citation or something? If so, I would also like to report my parents as well. I suspect that they are knuckle-dragging neo-cons as well but I’m not sure. I’m sure I can dig something up on them. There are lots of those scum bags out there. Perhaps we can organize into a group or something.

If a group is formed, would we get to wear any sort of uniform? I would suggest a brown button up shirt and pants and a cap since I have something like that already. Maybe we could have arm bands to with the Obama presidential seal in it. Can this group have a name? Something catchy. Umm let’s see. how about Obama Scouts – or – wait I know! How about Obama Youth! Yeah, now that is catchy! Ooo, I’m getting goose bumps!

Anyways, think about it and get back to me. Meanwhile, that asshole Jack takes his lunch break around 11:30 so that might be a good time to nab him. You can’t miss him. He has a jutting brow and jaw line like a Neanderthal. He just looks like a backwards-thinking, bible-thumping, flag-waving, gun-toting, beer-swilling, cigarette-smoking, wife-beating, Arab-hating, racist! And when it goes down, I wanna be right there laughing in his face!

Take care,

Concerned Citizen


Hey there, I just wanted to let you all know that my friends and I have put together a small web site for concerned citizens to get together and send a unified message... by turning themselves in... collectively.

Please stop by and be part of our "We're over HERE!" e-mail to the White House. We need to get the word out!


Thanks for speaking out so fast!!! We can't let the recruitment of a volunteer citizen spy group slide. If you check the applicable laws, this had to be in the works for a while.

I invite you to adopt the Newfoundland green 2 cents fish stamp as the symbol of the fishy goings on. You can see it on my post here:

If you think it is a good symbol to use, just click on it and copy it. We can't let this slide.

James J. Moore

The poster and all the many commenters who are convinced the White House wants to track down individuals who disagree with the President's health care policy need to pause for a moment, calm down and think. Why does the White House want help with this?

1. Because they WON'T use the expanded spying powers sought by the last administration to dig up this information behind people's backs via federal court orders to ISPs, use of the NSA, etc. What, you don't think they could do that?

2. Because they need quick access to the claims themselves so they can check them out and publicly refute them if necessary. After all, It's a lot easier to put out a pan fire than a burning house.

So you still think that the bonehead who posted this request on the White House website is helping carry out a nefarious plot to find and -- imprison? torture? eliminate? -- the individuals who participated in spreading emails opposing health care reform. Believe me, if they were really looking for the individuals originating this material, they could find them without your help or mine. It might take longer, but given the wonderful responses you all are posting to, it might not.

Relax, Obama's no saint, but he's no Dick Cheney either.


My mother flagged me in exchange for flagging her. We also decided to flood their inbox with "fishy" items, including the link to the amazon page for "One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish," and the link to the White House's page on health care reform. That seems mighty fishy to me. We need to keep filling their inbox with crap so they can see how ridiculous this is!


I flagged myself the other day. Let's just say my email wasn't pretty! Operation flag yourself is great!


In honor of the Go Flag Yourself movement, I've started up . I thought it would be nice to provide a central jumping point for some links to all these great articles. I would also like to link to this page from the site (if you don't mind).

That, and I want to help citizens and innocent victims of self-inflicted thought-crimes to be able to report themselves to our benevolent rulers. This is the only way we can re-educate ourselves.


Along with myself, I am in the process of turning in the faculty of the local university on a departmental basis. Even though the majority of ivory tower residents are committed liberals, two or three percent might hold conservative views. If so, they should be identified as such. After all, we couldn't have them spreading conservatism on our nation's college campuses.


I have read the 1000 page bill and it concerns me that the senator out there have no idea of what is in this bill and there answers to question are wrong . There are misleading these people and telling them untruths as you President Obama beacuse you have not had any imput into this bill and yet you say what is in this bill is not so are you not being on the edge of misleading the puplic also. It is amazing how many of WE the People have read the bill. So I will have to turn you, the Senate and the SICU who beat up a person at a town hall meeting and the Acorn people with organized signs as the UN AMERICANS. So I am reporting all of you to you . WE the people see who you are. In world war 11 Japan said the woke a sleeping giant. I think you have awoke the sleeping giant of we the people.

So I report you and the senate and SCIU and Acorn as UNamerican
