The SIMPLE Truth

...behind the Public Option

Simple enough? The Insurance industry doesn't want the competition. Funny though as that is, because competition is what the free market is all about. What Capitalist doesn't get it? What the fools who follow them don't get is that they will LIE to you to get your business. Getting YOUR business is all they are after. And they do it for profit and profits alone.

What the 9/12 D.C. Tea Party March Was Really About

So they had a little march on Washington last week. Some folks had a little trouble with the Metro and are now demanding an explanation thru their Texas Rep. Kevin Brady (R) who voted against funding for it? WTF? Do these people have even a hint of common sense? You can’t make this stuff up.

Revealed: What the 9/12 D.C. Tea Party March Was Really About

At 8:43 someone holds a Hannity/Palin 2012 sign. Wish he would have told that one about Alaska's own socialism with their fuel rebates. Where they share the people's resources.

Picture of the Week

The Dadfinger, like..."Don't make me pull this speech over, son."


For the Pro-Lifers

Here's one worth repeating...


Why are Winger Pro-Lifers So Against Saving Lives?

By Mark Karlin

It's one of the manifold hypocrisies of the right wing, psychotic movement of hysteria -- shifting from tea bagging, to birthers, to Town Hall mobs, to anti-the-President encouraging studying -- that as far as healthcare, the "pro-life" mob is anti-life when it comes to medical care for all Americans.

It's really quite simple: thousands of Americans die each year from not having health insurance. Period.

Part of being in a demagogic cabal in a parallel universe of emotional pathology is that you do not have to make sense.

In this case, the legacy of the Nixon Southern Strategy combined with corporate ownership of the media that manipulates displaced white workers into thinking immigrants and blacks are responsible for losing their jobs instead of the global Pac-Man corporations that have exported them overseas, has resulted in a selfish greed over some crumbs of pie left in the wake of big business abandonment of production in America.

As a nation, we produce very little anymore except gambling debts from "cannot fail" Wall Street financial firms that we bail out with more loans from China.

And speaking of China, unemployed and underpaid workers swarm Wal-Mart and buy cheap goods made in China while Wal-Mart pretends it's pro-American. It's a sort of enforced economic self-cannibalization, with the Waltons making billions of dollars off of this scam.

It's a twisted and perverse tale only made possible by the Goebbels fiction machine of Cable TV "News" with the exception of the -- for the moment -- MSNBC evening line up -- and the vast reaches of right wing "Devil in Your Ear' right wing radio.

The Corporations have used the media to divide America into two communities: one that claims that it only cares about whites and themselves and their churches (and to Hell with others, such as in Katrina); and 2) the progressives (almost exclusively Dems) who believe that we are a national community caring for each other as a nation.

Last night, Obama appealed to our better angels; the Republicans continue to appeal to Satan's greed and selfishness, plus a glob of racism. It's that simple; it really is.

It's a tale of two communities: one for white people slightly deranged who have been brainwashed by television and myths about the Confederacy; and one for those who believe America is a nation where we support each other for the public good and the health of the country.

We won the Civil War in 1865.

Why is it still going on?

And isn't it ironic that those who accuse President Obama of being communist, support the corporate hypocrisy of dealing with China. What next? Cuba too?
