While I am happy that Gabby Gifford was able to receive the help she needed, I’m disturbed by the story of the boy who was not provided

Nuttin' But Da Truth!

We now have what amounts to another debate on HCR and we need to be better prepared for it this time.
Let’s make this argument be based on facts and reality.

Dazed, I turned only to see said chorus approaching, grinning, with one of them rapping the words “Slam Slam Cinderella.” To add to the surreal quality of the event: I didn’t feel humiliated.

Yesterday morning, I opened my copy of The Guardian to learn that various tranches and services of the British National Health Service were being outsourced to private providers and, leading the fray for tenders, was none other than our old friend, Humana – AKA Bill Frist Inc. I was drinking […]

Come November, the Republican Party may need to change their mascot from the elephant to the lemming. In the aftermath of Scott Brown’s upset election in January, the GOP redoubled their bets on the failure of Health Care Reform. As they had for the last year, they showed no hesitation […]

A person I work with wears his libertarianism on his sleeve. He rails constantly at the workplace about liberals, hippies, taxes, Obama, etc. He has literally said in the workplace that Obama is evil. Well, about a year ago, he got into a massive motorcycle wreck. He had been drinking […]

You know how you can “smell” rain when it’s about to fall? It is completely premature but I can “feel” history coming on Sunday. Oddly, that doesn’t diminish how anxious I am for it to be tomorrow at 2 pm EST. In the meantime, here is a remarkable speech Pres. […]

Well, looky here: a Public Option in the first draft of the House reconciliation bill (un-numbered yet), pg. 116, Subtitle B, Public Health Insurance Option. http://budget.house.gov/doc-library/FY2010/03.15.2010_reconciliation2010.PDF I suppose, if you are like me and favor a Public Option, we shouldn’t get too excited: the vote is a whole week away […]

Well well, I hope he is right and this definitely sets the end game for HCR which is hardly a game at all. Obviously President Obama is all in on HCR. I admire his persistence and toughness which his critics always underestimate. If Congressional Democrats want to block HCR now […]
