The End of Democracy Will Be Televised

Posted by AdLib On Oct - 8 - 2009 24 Comments

There was a discussion on a news show yesterday, the commentators hosting a pair of talking heads on the topic of Pres. Obama’s having a big problem on the economy. They debated about the big problem being that he doesn’t have “big ideas” to address the economy. In the face […]

A Suggested Public Option Compromise

Posted by KQµårk 死神 On Oct - 7 - 2009 9 Comments

First let me unequivocally say I would prefer single payer over all and a robust public option for the entire country at least. However the one public option compromise I think I can live with was reported by Sam Stein today.  Some Senate Democrats are suggesting that they would add […]

Afghanistan not Vietnam but not Iraq Either

Posted by KQµårk 死神 On Oct - 5 - 2009 7 Comments

The comparisons of the Afghan War to Vietnam are pure hyperbole. The list of reasons are numerous but when you compare the total cost in human life lost in both wars there is simply no comparison. I think it’s incredibly disingenuous and disrespectful to compare the two wars considering what […]

Just Regulate Stupid!

Posted by KQµårk 死神 On Oct - 2 - 2009 7 Comments

One of the misconceptions in the healthcare debate is that single payer is the only way to keep healthcare costs down.  Countries like the Netherlands and Japan keep healthcare costs much lower than ours and have much better quality healthcare than ours with mostly private systems. All our legislature needs […]

I have had the misfortune to have caught what appears to be the Swine Flu. Not only do I appear to have all the symptoms but my lungs seem to be filled with bacon fat. This has resulted in my being stranded on the couch for days watching far too […]

The Real Vast Right Wing Conspiracy

Posted by KQµårk 死神 On Sep - 30 - 2009 6 Comments

According to end timers who quote many mythical (religious) references the world is suppose to end 2012. This is one of the reason many right wing end time believers think President Obama is the anti-Christ. To be fair it seems like every president since Nixon has been dubbed as the […]

Is America a Conservative Failure by Design?

Posted by KQµårk 死神 On Sep - 28 - 2009 8 Comments

Probably the thing that has surprised me most after the election of President Obama is how large swaths of this country simply cannot accept the tenants of our representative democracy.  Instead a large minority continue to demonize and mischaracterize the very progressive policies that people voted for even though conservative […]

The More You Don’t Know

Posted by AdLib On Sep - 25 - 2009 22 Comments

So many things are going on around us without our knowing. For example, I just took a bite of your tuna sandwich. Mmmm…delicious mercury! Below is a list of things you may or may not know but are not greatly publicized: 1. Social Security\Medicare has been de facto reduced for […]

Capitalism – An Abusive Marriage

Posted by AdLib On Sep - 24 - 2009 61 Comments

As Michael Moore’s new film, “Capitalism, A Love Story” is coming out its seems an appropriate time to reflect on the character of American capitalism and how it has usurped social responsibility and democracy in this country. In the remarkable documentary, “The Corporation”, a segment of the film is dedicated […]

Live from The Chicago Municipal Opera House, bequeathed to the city by Charles Foster (Citizen) Kane, it’s Oscar Night! Tonight is a special ceremony, wherein we honor the Best Pictures to NOT win Best Picture. At what other venue could we possibly hold this auspicious event? Citizen Kane is more than just […]

An Intolerant Truth – Reduce Global Flaming

Posted by AdLib On Sep - 21 - 2009 9 Comments

We Americans are being very wasteful with our natural resources of emotional energy. This is causing a slew of problems affecting our environment including adding a great deal of additional CO2 into the atmosphere,  pollution of political discourse  and a shortage of positive emotional energy. I think the time has […]

It Looks Like All or Nothing Time

Posted by KQµårk 死神 On Sep - 18 - 2009 6 Comments

All being real healthcare reform with a public option and nothing being no healthcare bill at all. Senator Cantwell (D-WA) is the second Finance Committee member along with Senator Rockefeller (D-WV) to say this will not vote for Chairman Baucus’ (D-MT) health insurance reform bill in it’s present form. “I […]

The White Elephant in the Room

Posted by AdLib On Sep - 18 - 2009 18 Comments

When it comes to huge impacting realities about American society, The MSM is militant…they employ a “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. For example, it was an open secret for decades that Catholic Priests had been abusing young boys. It was so well known “unofficially” that it became a throw away […]

100 Sponsors for Anti-Czar Bill

Alright folks. We were on on the verge of a depression, barely missed total bank melt down, and must muddle through a few years of recovery before anything like full employment and prosperity can be expected. We are ensnared in two intractable wars, plus a war against deranged religious extremism […]

Baucus Releases Private Healthcare Insurance Bill

Posted by KQµårk 死神 On Sep - 16 - 2009 15 Comments

Senator Baucus (D-MT) finally unleashed his bill which is mostly a giveaway to the healthcare industry.  Re-releasing this post to remind everyone what’s in the bill. The plan has no Public Option with possible co-ops or triggers in it’s place.  The bad fact is this is not the worst part […]
