Fighting Black Eyes

Welcome to reality, Chuck. Seriously, just now coming to this conclusion?

And that co-op option is utter horse shit.

Public Plan Period.

51 votes, dumbass.

GOP Opposing Public Health Care No Matter What It's Called:

"Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on Tuesday afternoon that he is 'losing confidence that Senate Republicans will ever agree' to the creation of a national, nonprofit cooperative health care plan as an acceptable alternative to a public health care option, which Republicans strenuously oppose."

Krugman nails this. Shitty Democrats are a far larger problem than the beat-down Republicans.

Op-Ed Columnist - Health Care Showdown - NYTimes.com

The real risk is that health care reform will be undermined by “centrist” Democratic senators who either prevent the passage of a bill or insist on watering down key elements of reform. I use scare quotes around “centrist,” by the way, because if the center means the position held by most Americans, the self-proclaimed centrists are in fact way out in right field.

What the balking Democrats seem most determined to do is to kill the public option, either by eliminating it or by carrying out a bait-and-switch, replacing a true public option with something meaningless. For the record, neither regional health cooperatives nor state-level public plans, both of which have been proposed as alternatives, would have the financial stability and bargaining power needed to bring down health care costs.

Whatever may be motivating these Democrats, they don’t seem able to explain their reasons in public.

Tapes Reveal Nixon’s View of Abortion - NYTimes.com:

"Nixon worried that greater access to abortions would foster “permissiveness,” and said that “it breaks the family.” But he also saw a need for abortion in some cases, such as interracial pregnancies.

“There are times when an abortion is necessary. I know that. When you have a black and a white,” he told an aide, before adding: “Or a rape.”"

I'll be purchasing every bit of Black Eyed Peas merch I can today. A national holiday should be created in honor of the BEPs.

This bottom feeders deserves an ass whuppin on a daily basis.

Hilarious.

Perez Hilton Called Will.i.am A "F*gg*t" Pre-Fight:

Hilton said he got into an argument with band members Fergie and will.i.am at the Cobra nightclub early Monday morning and was punched outside by Polo Molina, the band's tour manager. They were at the club following a Sunday night video awards show."

JPW---Will I ever stop being depressed about this world? Equating an interracial pregnancy with a rape pregnancy?!?!? My mother was a devout Nixon supporter until she died. In her world he was a wonderful man chased out of office by the evil, literal press. She was quite a racist herself, so....As I read once, and agreed, the much maligned/laughed at/portrayed as nutcase Dennis K would probably be considered middle of the road in Europe and most of the industrialized world. I am trapped (I guess I could leave...) in an insane society. My family had the same cleaning woman my whole life there. She was born in the USA, and was a Protestant. I remember her being utterly and inconsolably hysterical when Kennedy was elected. She thought that meant the whole country would be forced to become Catholics. She was contemplating suicide because of it...DBJ

In my previous rant "literal" should read "liberal".

They times they ARE NOT a changin', ay, Davy?

There some light out there, though, Dave. We can't focus on the depressive all the time.

That's why we feed out soul with music. It helps salve the wounds.
