Well when Huffy first announced it’s creation of an “investigative team” I wondered what it would entail.  It looks like we now know.  They stalk the halls of the White House and talk to as many administration officials as possible to obtain anonymously quotes.  Then the most controversial statement they […]

Profits are a reward for taking risks. How can it be that a company makes a 30% margin being the gate keeper between you and your doctor? Why should a hospital chain make a 30% margin delivering health care? How is that moral?   There is no risk in those businesses. […]

Seriously, what does the GOP stand for? Goofballs Opposing Progress? Now of course it’s understandable that the most  loyal Republicans include those opposing evolution, racial equality and integration, health care as a civil right, curbing global warming, peace and the laws of gravity. Not to mention those who love teabagging […]

I suppose the problem for John Bolton and the other NeoCon clowns is that Obama did not bomb N. Korea. The Rethugs demand a blood sacrifice. Seriously, Bolton compared the two women to soldiers.   He said that the president should have applied the same consideration that he would use when […]

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 […]

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.
