Weekly Address: Real Health Care Reform




Just My Little Piece of the World has more here...

Foxessa points out that George Tiller is hardly the first victim of right-wing repressive attitudes and actions against women's reproductive rights. In fact, this goes back over a hundred years...

Like all thinking people, Projections is mystified by the Republican concept of judicial objectivity. Says Republican senator Jeff Sessions (AL), the one-time segregationist and ranking minority member of the Senate Judiciary Committe,
Do I want a judge that allows his or her social, political or religious views to impact the outcome, or do I want a judge that objectively applies the law to the facts? That is the central question around which this entire nomination process will revolve.
Based on his record of consistent support for school prayer and calling the NAACP "Communist inspired," I'd say that the former is exactly what Jeff Sessions wants. He just wants a nominee who subscribes to his social, political, and religious views...

President Obama finds his ancient twin. ZenYenta has more here...

Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) wants to apply the Dutch model of water management to Southern Lousiana and prepares to take on the Army Corps of Engineers in the process...

Rushbo Stupidism of the Week: Rush has been in a lather all week over President Obama's Cairo speech, excreting the usual "Obama is an angry man who hates America" nonsense. But any time one of these clowns mocks the Holocaust, well, ya just can't pass on that:
Did you see Angela Merkel standing next to the guy [Obama]? Put this in perpective. She was standing there, and she's not happy because, you know, he's -- they're not getting along and they haven't gotten along ever. So there he is. He's at Buchenwald today, the concentration camp, and he is beating Germany up. He's ripping them to shreds over something they did 60 years ago one day after praising all of Islam. Now, can you imagine? Now, of course Elie Wiesel gets up there and he does his thing, but it's 65 years here or close to it, and so she's up there, and did you see the look on her face? It's more than just solemnity on her face. Trust me, my friends, I know these things. And he's up there and he's ripping Germany, what it did 60, 65 years ago, blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah -- one day, one day after praising to the hilt Islam and talking about how Islam is a nation -- America is a Muslim nation and so forth. Trust me on this; she wasn't happy.

Yeah, he forgot to mention just a little while before when they were standing side by side laughing and joking with each other as the President signed the guest book at Dresden. Rush wouldn't know the truth if it bit him in the Butt.. What a tool.

LOL thanks again..

Can we get that doofus's license to open his mouth revoked? Talk about no brain!

That's pretty cool that there's a 6,000 year old figure in Egypt that looks like President Obama. Heh, heh! Now he can look the creationists in the eye and say: "Your dates are off. I was there then, and the earth was already running."

Rush really is a BFI. It's astounding to me that the former VP of the United States -- utter jerk though he may be -- claims to have more in common with an angry blowhard huckster than a former head of the Joint Chiefs and Sec'y of State who also happens to exude prestige. Go figure.

Angela Merkel was no doubt delighted that the American president wasn't coming up behind her and manhandling her neck. I'm sure that look on her face was partly relief.

Reading anything by Rushbo is like watching a scary movie between your clinched fingers...I don't want to see it! Yet, I KNOW it's going to be awful so maybe, just a peek?? And by god it IS awful and he makes me barf. The end.
