Interestingly, or should I say sadly, all the major NEWS networks carried similar stories to that of MSNBC.  I chose only to complain to MSNBC about their lack of journalistic values and integrity. Here is what I wrote:  What kind of schizophrenic news organization is MSNBC when it runs stories like: Sara "I can see Russia from my backyard" Palin saying that she is thankful for the opportunity to write truth and not calling her out for the 18 or so huge lies already revealed in her so called memoirs of TRUTH? Or better yet, the hypocrisy of Rudy Giuliani's current comments on the Obama Administrations trying alleged 9/11 plotters in NYC as opposed to his glowing comments about earlier terrorist trials... by the Republican Admin. and which of course were also staged in NYC?

Seriously, why don't you people (meaning every major mainstream news journalist) have the balls to call out these people the way Comedy Central's Jon Stewart does? He may be the only REAL journalist left alive and practicing in America. It's so very VERY sad that the only person left with a reputation for getting to TRUTH is a comedian doing fake news of a comedy show.
Far, far beyond the Lunatic Fringe.   This video (click here to view) is from Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, broadcast July 22, 2009.

It is bad enough we have REPUBLITHUGS saying NO to any real change, but now the enabler in Chief?   I am sick and tired of Obama breaking promise after promise.  As of now, I will NOT support another BUSH like president.  Transparency huh, where is it?  He was the candidate of change... right?  What change?  Obama is more like BUSH than BUSH!  He has forsaken those of us who campaigned, pledged money and supported his candidacy for all those months and years.  Talk about a major disappointment!


In another sign of an increasingly secretive White House, the Obama administration has threatened to veto an intelligence-services spending bill because it would increase the number of Congresspeople who would have to be informed of the activities of agencies such as the CIA.  Is this the so called change for which elected Obama?  I think NOT!

Dear Friends,

Nine-year-old Brisenia Flores was sleeping soundly in her bed in Arivaca, Arizona when she was shot and killed in cold blood.

It was no random act of violence.[1] Shawna Forde, the suspected mastermind of the home invasion robbery in which Brisenia and her father Raul were killed, is the leader of the vigilante group Minutemen American Defense and has been tied to the national Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).[2] Both groups have been labeled by the Southern Poverty Law Center as "hate groups" and have a long record of routinely dehumanizing immigrants and vilifying Latinos.

The problem is bigger than FAIR or any other group. Some members of Congress have been legitimizing these organizations for years—inviting them to testify as "experts"—while the rhetoric coming from these groups has given rise to violence against Latinos, like the killing of Brisenia and Raul Flores.[3] That needs to end now.

I’ve joined in demanding that Congress renounce FAIR, the Minutemen, and other anti-immigrant hate groups. Please click below to join me, and ask your friends and family to do the same:

FAIR and the Minutemen groups are regularly quoted in the mainstream media—FAIR more than 500 times in 2008—giving them a megaphone to broadcast their hateful beliefs and rhetoric: like FAIR executive director Dan Stein’s claim that "illegal aliens are more prone to criminal activity than the rest of the population," or Minutemen co-founder Jim Gilchrist’s assertion that it is "okay to say ‘rapist,’ ‘robber’ and ‘murderer’" when describing "illegal aliens."[4]

As vile as their rhetoric is, even more disturbing is when our elected representatives applaud their efforts and parrot their messages. Take Ranking Republican Congressman on the House Immigration Sub-Committee, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), a long-time friend of extremist groups, who wrote that a day without immigrants in America would mean "the lives of 12 U.S. citizens would be saved who otherwise die a violent death at the hands of murderous illegal aliens each day." Those debunked claims were then repeated hundreds of times by FAIR and others, creating an echo chamber of racism and hate.[5]

Or take Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama), the ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, who has likened immigrants to terrorists and child molesters, as well as taking money from a group with white-supremacist ties.[6]

Elected leaders like these, together with their allies in extremist anti-immigrant groups, create a climate of hatred that leads to violence – as evidenced by a recent string of hate-motivated killings across the country [7].

Enough is enough. Please join me in holding members of Congress accountable by demanding they stop legitimizing FAIR and the Minutemen. It takes only a moment:


It's 2009. Democrats have ample majorities in both houses of Congress. President Obama campaigned on the promise to tackle climate change and boost our economy by investing in clean energy.

So why on earth is Congress considering an energy bill that:

  • Would weaken current law, repealing President Obama's authority to crack down on dirty power plants,1 and
  • Doesn't actually require the creation of new solar or wind power? (The Union of Concerned Scientists has concluded that the clean energy standards won't make power companies produce more clean energy than is already in the works.)2

Why? Because Big Oil and Coal have teamed up with conservatives in both parties, and they've been successful in weakening the bill.

These are major flaws, but the bill has a lot of really good provisions, too. The key thing is that Congress can still strengthen it—if there's a public outcry. But we don't have much time: Congress is expected to vote on this bill in less than three weeks.

Can you sign this petition to Representative Martin Heinrich today? Eighty thousand MoveOn members have already signed. We need to double the number of signatures by Wednesday—that means we need 143 more signatures in Albuquerque. MoveOn members will personally deliver this petition to many congressional offices the next day. Click here to add your name:

The petition says: "We need a stronger energy bill to fulfill Obama's vision of a clean energy economy. Congress should strengthen the clean energy standards and restore Obama's authority to crack down on dirty coal plants." 

Congress must change the energy bill to require power companies to produce more clean energy for America. Wind and solar create more than twice as many jobs as coal and oil.3 And Congress needs to hold polluters accountable by restoring President Obama's current authority through the EPA to crack down on global warming pollution from power plants.

The Union of Concerned Scientists analysis finds that the current version of the clean energy standard "won't require utilities to use any more renewable electricity than...would be generated as a result of state renewable electricity standards already in place and the recently enacted stimulus package."4

If we just sit back, we'll miss our chance to go big with wind and solar—and we'll lose the jobs those industries would create. Big Oil and Coal will keep getting billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies. And President Obama will be powerless to stop more than 100 new dirty coal plants, which will crowd out the clean energy growth we need to boost our economy.5

There are some good parts of the bill, but these are significant problems. As the Sierra Club's Carl Pope writes, the bill establishes strong long-term goals for cutting carbon pollution and very strong energy-efficiency investments, "but in its present form, it won't do all that's needed. The oil, coal, and dirty-utility interests...were able to prevent enactment of President Obama's much bolder vision...Yes, they will try to kill the green-jobs recovery in its cradle, and yes, they will try to block our clean-energy future."6

Please urge Rep. Heinrich to fight for a stronger energy bill. Clicking here will add your name to the petition:


The poster boy for Alzheimer's demands an apology from the Obama Administration over a report issued by a former Bush appointee?

Ever so suddenly John McCain  DISCOVERS veterans and defends them against a memo written by a former Bush appointees who warns of extremist right wing types who have left the military, etc.  A very similar memo was written during the Bush administration.  Why didn't McCain speak out then?  Better yet, why did it take him so long to vote for added benefits for veterans?  Where was his voice when Rummy and Bush dragged their feet for armor and body armor in Iraq?

Oh yes, John "Gramps" McCain, what a deceitful piece of smelly excrement.  This lame brain had to be truly pressured to even vote for giving VETS the benefits increase they deserved.  And when the BUSH folks wrote a very similar report where was his outrage?  This lying old bastard needs to be put out to pasture before he pisses himself in public while outright lying to try and stay relevant and completely embarrasses himself and family.  Buy him some new DEPENDS, a new shuffleboard set and then don't let him leave any of his 7 homes.  Say, couldn't his daughter serve out the rest of his term?

President Obama,

What is this… every time I open an email it’s DONATE for this.. donate for that... why?  President Sir, correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't we win the last election?   

I must get 2 or three email messages a week (from Plouffe, Michelle, YOU, and others from your administration/CAMPAIGN), I say campaign since it seems you are still in campaign mode even though you occupy the highest office in the land.  Instead of doing every thing in your power to appease the renegade DEMS, the so called Blue Dog Democrats and of course the idiot Republicans, you seem to have chosen US, the path of least resistance… we donate more campaign money to get the programs and policies we voted you to enact for us… well, it seems like extortion.  Why after the hundreds of millions we raided during the election campaign isn’t that enough?  You, nor anyone in your administration has ever explained that, or even warned that this was to be the case.  My God President Obama, you have a 60 + approval rating so stop coddling the Republicans and go out and get the Democrats in line.  You are wearing thin on your base with all the requests for money after the fact, and more importantly your recent flip flops… did I mention torture, Illegal spying on American without a warrant and your refusal to get to the bottom of it?  Also, you of all people a Constitutional Lawyer supporting Bush’s executive privilege claim, etc.  Barrack, you want our money, but aren’t doing many of the things you campaigned for… so, I respectfully ask you just how’s that change we can believe in?

The change we voted in was mandated… so why don’t you in the current Obama administration spend more time working on the CONGRESS to enact the change and stop hounding us for EVEN more of our hard earned money.  I’m through giving… I’ve given more than my fair share. 

Every time I receive an email suggesting I call my Senators, Congressperson regarding a vote I agree with I do it like the good little Obama foot soldier I am... isn't that enough?  Since when did Democracy become nothing more than an exchange of money, or who has more to buy Public Relation campaigns?  The fact is we voted in a new President and a Congress with a big majority, now shouldn't that be enough for the power to shift?  Please explain to me why a public relations effort is still required to get your platform enacted.  The election wasn't enough? How is that possible?  Also, just where is the money going?  I have yet to see any details on how it is spent... it just seems that with every new initiative I'm asked to contribute more because of the red Republican menace threaten the Obama agenda.  Seriously, is this really the politics of change, or is it just more of the same with a new brand name?

As I see it, it’s NOW your turn to deliver… and you can start with TORTURE and Illegal Spying.  If you don’t do that, don’t expect another dime from me.

Hold Wall Street CEOs Accountable

Why aren't the Financial Institutions being held to the same standard the Auto Industry has been?  Tell the Obama Admin to wake up and start holding them all to the same standards... it's our money... isn't it?

"We can't trust the same people who got us into this financial mess to help lead us out. Replace the leadership at the bailed-out banks, starting with Bank of America CEO Ken Lewis."

The likes of Rush Limbaugh, Michelle Malkin, Glenn Beck, and Congresswoman Michelle Bachman (R of Minnesota) who have been calling for an Armed, and dangerous REVOLUTION by telling right wing nuts that Obama wants their guns must be proud of Richard Poplawski... huh?
Thanks to some sleuth work on the Internet, we're starting to learn more about Richard Poplawski, the 23-year-old who killed three police officers yesterday in Pittsburgh, evidently out of fear that his guns were going to be taken away.

thumb_mediumPoplawski2_a899a.JPGIt appears that what police may be looking at is a budding white supremacist who frequented one of the most popular neo-Nazi websites and harbored an apocalyptic dread of the federal government.

The Village Voice's True Crime Report has done a lot of the sleuthing. The thread of connective tissue involving the evidence they've uncovered isn't perfectly solid, but the strands are all well connected enough to suggest the general thrust is reasonably accurate.  Take a good look Rush. Glenn, Michelle etc., this is you constituent!  This is what your hate has brought us all.  This is what your lies, distortions and half truths has spawned.  Are you proud yet?



Oh my God, if the DEMS fall for this one, I'll ... hell I don't know what I'll do.  The CNN headline reads, "  Fast-track budget tool would kill bipartisanship, GOP says."  WHAT?

OK, so after I stopped laughing at the silly suggestion that we've recently experienced bipartisanship in any form or fashion, I asked myself, why would someone at CNN even write such a statement?  Aren't they the most trusted news organization?  Then why would they imply bipartisanship would be lost if the DEMS do what the voters asked for?  Is CNN screwing with us, or what?

It's April 1, 2009, it must be time for the GOP to Make Even Bigger Fools of themselves.

Most appropriately, after unveiling their Budget (here in after referred to as the
GOP Fudget), which had no numbers or details the GOP brain trust chose today, April Fools Day to reintroduce their Republican FUDGET alternative.  This time it has a few more details.  Yes, things like gutting Medicare and enacting $4 million in tax cuts primarily for the wealthy -- how very Republican.  It calls for "privatizing" Medicare and much of the same ole same ole we've heard for the last 8 years or longer. 

After ripping the Democratic budget as too expensive, Boehner said that "Republicans in the House will offer a better solution that'll be less on spending, less on taxes and a lot less on debt for our kids and grandkids."

But there was no budget. "Do you guys have a formal budget yet?" asked a reporter.

"Mr. Ryan will outline the Republican budget at 10:30 this morning. And yes we do have it," replied Boehner, referring to Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.).

A silence followed, with reporters apparently unsure what to ask next.

Democrats, in contrast, had plenty to say, with Obama officials mocking the Republican document as a sad April Fools prank.

"If you expected a GOP alternative to the failed policies of the past that got our country into the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, then I have two words for you: April Fool's," said Kenneth Baer, OMB communications director.

This FUDget is more than an April Fools Joke, it's one of the funniest things I've seen in almost 20 years... it reminds me of the "Contract with America"... now that was comedy.

The GOP have a huge fund raising event scheduled in June and Sarah Palin was to have been the keynote speaker.  Unfortunately due to a scheduling conflict/mishap (wink... wink... wink), ole six pack was just recycled, or replaced by the big Newt.  Interesting huh?  Several months left to correct her schedule, but the GOP decides Newt is the hot new GOP star to jump start fund raising?

OK, when asked about Republican Presidential candidates in 2012, why didn't John McCain give his old running mate for VP a ringing endorsement?  Just a few months ago, he loudly proclaimed her ready for the number one seat if necessary... remember?  What's changed?  Why is McCain distancing himself from Six Pack Sarah?

Could it be even Gramps McCain is now embarrassed by his past choice and finally recognizes the wack job from Alaska is not even qualified to be Governor of Alaska.  My guess is YES!

No, its not Springtime in Minnesota, it's still November 2008!  Texas Sen. John Cornyn is threatening “World War III” if Democrats try to seat Al Franken in the Senate before Norm Coleman can pursue his case through the federal courts.
republithug cornyn - a big crybaby
Cornyn, the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, acknowledges that a federal challenge to November’s elections could take “years” to resolve. But he’s adamant that Coleman deserves that chance — even if it means Minnesota is short a senator for the duration.

A three-judge panel is expected to rule any day now on legal challenges to the November election.

Coleman attorney Joe Friedberg has predicted that Franken will be on top after the court rules, arguing that an appeal to the Minnesota Supreme Court could swing the election back in Coleman’s favor.  But what if that doesn’t happen?  Nobody really knows.

As Roland Burris will recall, you can’t take a seat in the Senate without an election certificate from your state. And it’s not clear whether the candidate who’s ahead after the Minnesota Supreme Court rules could get an election certificate from Minnesota if his opponent is seeking review from the United States Supreme Court or challenging the results in a new lawsuit in federal court.

Sen. Charles Schumer, the New York Democrat in charge of the Senate Rules and Administration Committee, says that Minnesota gets its second senator as soon as the state case ends
 “Whatever the state Supreme Court decides, as I understand it, the law requires it to be certified,” Schumer says.

Senator John "Crybaby" Cornyn, your comments regarding Democrats seating the soon to be Senator Franken of Minnesota speaks volumes.  Republicans can't accept the fact the nation has left you and your tired old policies behind.  Senator, WWIII came and went with the last 2 election cycles.. Crybaby, sore loser Cornyn this all occurred while you and your Neanderthal, monumental LOSER, Republican cohorts were beating your chests and talking about a permanent MAJORITY.  Say, how's that permanent majority working for you?  The nation is laughing at you and your idle threats Senator Crybaby Dumbass!

Now this is embarrassing.  Instead of the United States cleaning up after itself, the Spaniards are doing it for us. 

The New York Times Reports:  A high-level Spanish court has taken the first steps toward opening a criminal investigation against six former Bush administration officials, including former Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales, on whether they violated international law by providing a legalistic framework to justify the use of torture of prisoners at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, an official close to the case said.

The case was sent to the prosecutor’s office for review by Baltasar Garzón, the crusading investigative judge who ordered the arrest of the former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet. The official said that it was “highly probable” that the case would go forward and that it could lead to arrest warrants.

The move represents a step toward ascertaining the legal accountability of top Bush administration officials for allegations of torture and mistreatment of prisoners in the campaign against terrorism. But some American experts said that even if warrants were issued their significance could be more symbolic than practical, and that it was a near certainty that the warrants would not lead to arrests if the officials did not leave the United States.

The complaint under review also names John C. Yoo, the former Justice Department lawyer who wrote secret legal opinions saying the president had the authority to circumvent the Geneva Conventions, and Douglas J. Feith, the former under secretary of defense for policy.

The move was not entirely unexpected, as several human rights groups have been asking judges in different countries to indict Bush administration officials. One group, the Center for Constitutional Rights, had asked a German prosecutor for such an indictment, but the prosecutor declined.

Why hasn't the Obama administration come to grips with this already?  It's a little, no HELL, it's very disappointing!  Of course now that things are getting warmer, and with the specter of a trial looming, maybe President Obama will get off his moderate, bi-partisan ass and do something... maybe?

Michelle Bachman Lunacy and MORE!

This past Wednesday, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) appeared on Sean Hannity's radio show, and sharply reiterated her calls for revolution in America, warning against the imminent dangers of tyranny under Barack Obama and his socialist ways.  Enough is enough.  You need to call your Congressman and asked that Rep. Bachmann be censured for her incitement. I also suggest you call her office (1-202-225-2331) and tell her the REVOLUTION happened in 2008... they lost, we won... it's called an election!  Send her your regards:, You should use this zip code: 56301

Talk About Your Republican Hypocrisy -

Just days ago, the Top Republican complained that the Jay Leno appearance and California Town Hall meetings President Obama did were not appropriate.  The implication being that somehow being able to chew gum and walk (multi-tasking) was either shameful or a dereliction of duty.  In fact, Eric Cantor said until the crisis is averted, Obama should do noting else but oversee the financial crisis... right?  Minority Whip goes to Britney Concert, while President Obama does another Town Hall Meeting to explain his budget and what's being done to combat the financial crisis.  God forbid average American citizens are informed.  So who is it that is actually doing the work of the people?

 Alas, the poor narrow minded, inept and impotent GOP, with each new election cycle they are more rudderless and sinking deeper into a circular pattern. It's a pattern, or a motion best described as if to have been flushed down a drain.

 If you look closely, one by one, as they attempt to swim the dangerous political waters of George W Bush's failed policies and economy, their little feet and legs just a kicking, they will look at you while turning and show their creepy, grotesque faces and lying eyes... and by golly, yes you can see their fear of losing power.  Oh my, there's the Imperial Wizard Rush Limbaugh, Mitch "Stick a fork in me, I'm done" McConnell, John "George Hamilton look a like" Boehner, there goes Michael "He thinks he's the man of" Steele, and there is little Eric "Britney is so hot" Cantor.  What a pathetic site as they continue their downward spiral traveling the drain.  Then suddenly you hear the backwash sound from the political toilet after the big flush!  Their pinheads disappear... whoops it's over.  They've just gone under completely.

OK does anyone know where the "tidy bowl" dude is?

The Economic Mess?  Who Besides the George W. Bush Administration Caused it and how?

The answer:  Deregulation. OK, for anyone who would care enough to know (and be completely disgusted with) just how big of a mess we're actually in, go read Matt Taibbi's latest article for Rolling Stone: "The Big Takeover: The global economic crisis isn't about money - it's about power. How Wall Street insiders are using the bailout to stage a revolution".

Rachel Maddow: There would be no outrage about AIG's bonuses if AIG hadn't needed bailing out, right? I mean sure people get mad at fat cats with high salaries when everyone else is broke. But it's the fact that this company was using our money, taxpayers money to pay those bonuses that caused the entire country to grind our teeth down their nub ends to rage at these guys.

So there would be no outrage about AIG turning taxpayer bailout dollars into executive bonuses if there hadn't been a bailout. AIG wouldn't have needed bailing out if it weren't too big to fail, too integral to all these other parts of the financial industries. AIG wouldn't have become too big to fail if they hadn't become a big hybrid complicated uber-financial everything company that made all sorts of arcane financially engineered moves that got them squirreled into every kind of financial related business that you can think of.

AIG wouldn't have become a big hybrid complicated uber-financial everything company if there hadn't been, and this is key, deregulation of Wall Street that allowed firms to get like that. And massive deregulation of Wall Street wouldn't have happened without the rise of a political movement that preached that regulation was inherently evil and deregulation was inherently wise and virtuous and would make everyone rich and it would be free well behaved puppies for every family.

Do you want an example of how this deregulation thing worked? You can totally use this at the high school dance or a bar or whatever to try to impress someone. Somebody starts complaining about the bailout. Complaining about AIG. You tell them actually the real villain here is Gramm-Leach-Bliley. Just say it with total confidence. Watch the below clips and you will be informed.  Surely listening to Reagan's ghost, the Kings of Deregulation Gramm-Leach-Bliley are the three daring Republithugs who put greed in front of the country and mankind.  A huge special thanks to Crooks and Liars.

AIG Still giving out BONUSES?

There shouldn't be any bonuses handed out. Instead, they should be handed PINK slips for their failures! What kind of world are we living in when we reward absolute failure? 

No More Dough Till We Know Where It Goes

REPUKES, do you wonder why you're so very, very much out of power?  
It's headlines like these from today that has made you the impotent party you are.  First off
Cheney Shrugs: Don't Blame Us For Economic Crisis and then same day, Perino: Bush Deserves Credit For Recent Market Uptick.  You never want to take blame, or be responsible for anything negative, but you're willing to take credit even when its abundantly clear that none is due!  The Bush Co. folks use to at least stay on message and were clever enough not to have contracting messages appear, but now, hell you guys lie about any and everything.  Its a sad state of affairs for the GOP.

In the same time frame and interview by John King of CNN, Cheney told us that because of Obama's decisions on Gitmo. Enemy Combatant status and others we are now less safe... surprise!  Shocker huh? 

OK, so did John "Pussy" King ask "the dickless wonder" Cheney about Sy Hersh's claim that he had his own assassination squad? And if not, why not? That is more newsworthy than Cheney's revisionist lies, distortions, and BS to try and scare us all and try and justify torture, etc. The question is WHY doesn't the MSM especially little ass-wipes like CNN's John King ask the pertinent questions? Dick Cheney, Rummy and Bush should all be in jail... not making the talk show circuit!

Ari Fleischer, the Lie Machine.

His appearance on Hardball (03/11/2009) was interesting. Anyone notice dickbird Ari's statement that because of George W Bush, Saddam couldn't attack us again? The idiot said, "After 911, how could we chance Saddam wouldn't strike us again!"

My God, he and Cheney still want to confuse the people, distort the facts, revise history and disseminate total Bullshit!  Saddam? Surely he meant Osama, but I think he said Saddam... I know, I know, it's difficult keeping your lies straight, etc. He kept trying to say that Saddam was the threat and that because Bush stripped away rights of the average American, spied on us illegally, and tortured

Ari kept using the words "mind numbingly" which is obvious he is and the crème de la crème was his excuse that Bush took us to war simply due to an intelligence mistake.  He actually claimed that they never claimed Iraq had nukes... they just kept repeating mushroom cloud, etc. What a huge a$$!

Republicans - The misguided and foolish - torn from Crooks and Liars!
Bill Maher Lambastes GOP's Hatred of Government


icon click on the pic to play This is one of the better New Rules segments I've seen from Maher in a while. He ends it with channeling Michael Moore with his criticism of insurance companies in this diatribe on the Republicans and their anti-government rhetoric and love of the private sector.

Maher:The thing is that endless variety only exists because Americans pay taxes to a government which maintains roads, irrigates fields, over sees the electrical grid and everything else but enables the modern American supermarket to carry forty seven varieties of frozen breakfast pastries.

Of course it's easy to tear government down. Ronald Reagan used to say the nine most terrifying words in the English language were "I'm from the government and I'm here to help". But that was before "I'm Sarah Palin, now show me the launch codes".

You know the stimulus package was attacked as typical tax and spend, you know like repairing bridges is left wing stuff. Ooh there the liberals go again. Always wanting to get across the river.

Folks, the people are the government. The first responders who put out your fires. That's your government. The ranger who shoos pedophiles out of the bathroom. The postman who delivers your porn. I mean how stupid is it when people say "Oh yeah that's all we need. The federal government telling Detroit how to make cars, or Wells Fargo how to run a bank. You want them to look like the Post Office?"

Yeah. Actually. You mean.. you mean the place that takes a note in my hand in L.A. on Monday and gives it to my sister in Jersey on Wednesday for forty two cents? Well let me be the first to say I would be thrilled if America's health care system was anywhere near as functional as the Post Office.

The truth is, recent years have made me much more wary of government doing the opposite. Of stepping aside and letting unregulated private enterprise run things it is plainly too greedy to trust with, like Wall Street, like rebuilding Iraq. Like the way Republicans always frame the health care debate by saying health care decisions should be made by doctors and patients, not government bureaucrats. Leaving out the fact that health decisions aren't made by doctors, patients or bureaucrats. They're made by insurance companies.

Insurance companies. Which are a lot like hospital gowns. Chances are your ass isn't covered.
