The Basic Moral Justification for Universal Healthcare. Healthcare is a fundamental right for all human beings.  In societies that can afford universal healthcare like most in the industrialized world including the US it is criminal for healthcare not to be accessible to all citizens.  In fact it is a crime […]

Much is made now that the current GOP is the “Party of No”. But let’s remember that throughout American history conservatives have always been against progress. Whether it was first the Democrats in the 19th century or ultra conservative Republicans in the late 20th and early 21st century conservatives have […]

There was a contest for the nomination of the Dem party. The other major player in that contest was Hillary Clinton. Some of you liked her, I did not. I think we can all agree that she is a woman who gets what she wants if she possibly can.   She […]

Shocking! Shocking I say! PlanetPOV has uncovered the truth about Orly Taitz and though she claims to be a citizen of Wack-ovia, she was in fact born in Kenya! Look at the indisputable evidence, a copy of her Kenyan birth certificate! The Birther movement suffered a severe blow with this […]

A picture of me in hospital.  I have shared this story on the site the white house set up and I will share it here now. I have experienced both healthcare worlds because I started out with very good healthcare which over 10 years degraded to pretty good healthcare insurance […]

What seems to be shaping up as the ultimate national internal conflict for the United States is not Republican vs. Democrat, Conservative vs. Liberal, Pro-Life vs. Pro-Choice or Family Values vs. Republican Politicians. It is Stupid vs. Smart. The Washington game, most played by Republicans and recognized and sanctioned by […]

It really shouldn’t be surprising that the Republican Party is focused right now on winning nothing, the biggest nothing in recent times. The GOP’s goal, what they are campaigning full bore to provide to Americans, is absolutely nothing…in terms of health care reform. What is bewildering is how a party […]

What a difference having the president in the country makes.

After a tumultuous and uneven week last week this week has been a major perhaps historic step forward on healthcare reform.

Two bills have advanced this week to the general assembly in each chamber of Congress. The three committees working on healthcare reform have joined together to forward a bill for markup to the floor of the House. While the Senate HELP committee in somewhat of a surprised outflanked the Fiance committee and passed a bill on a 13-10 partisan vote.

Holder’s trial balloon describes a course of inquiry worse than no investigation at all. While what little we know we know due to carefully leaked comments, the fact that the leaks were coordinated to several newspapers simultaneously and that the story was consistent indicates that this is a course of […]

It seems far too many Americans live by the phrase, “Don’t pee on my leg and tell me it’s raining…unless you’re really, really convincing.”

Many people WANT to be sold on bullshit, they just don’t like thinking about things that make them feel bad or insecure and welcome any and all attempts to re-label reality. This is endemic in politics but just as intertwined in most other parts of society.

There have been numerous developments on the healthcare reform front since congress has returned from July 4th recess. The biggest development is that the Democrats now have a so called “super majority” since they now have 60 seats in the Senate thanks to the addition of progressive Senator Al Franken of Minnesota.

This week’s latest installment in the soap opera of Sarah Palin has given again the opportuinity to reactionaries (the people who detest Bill Clinton or Barack Obama) to again ask in a plaintive voice: “Why are Liberals so hateful toward (whoever) Sarah Palin?    (Next week there will be a new […]

Dear God, We humbly write to you, our great and omnipotent Lord because we’re not sure you’re aware of what’s been happening lately. We’ve done everything to follow what you want. We hate all the right people. We promote Christian values especially when we cheat on our wives, get caught […]

I tired, almost two months ago, at the foolishness of my fellow liberals, working the meme “President Obama is playing three-dimensional chess” when discussing the pending (0r NOT!) investigations into the crimes of BushCo. Particularly at a site that shall remain nameless (but some would call it FaRT) I found […]
