I always hate one thing at political rallies. Some candidate will stand up and say “This is the most important election of our lives!” Every year. Is the 2010 election as important as all the rest? I’ll let our readers decide, and then pass this around to everyone you know who wants workable single-payer health insurance.
Seventy-three percent of those just polled by NBC/WSJ answer in agreement with this statement:

In observing the vitriolic, over-the-top fight to NOT have heath care insurance reform, organized by the status quo but carried out by the working class slobs who have been enamored with the Republican Party since Rush Limbaugh became its titular head a couple of decades back, you are observing the single most powerful act of spite ever carried out by any group of humans.
The current bill is loaded in favor of those who are footing the bill to fight it, and whether that is to make them look good by “giving in” to something they want when this is all over and done, I can’t say. I think it is something is guaranteed to fail in solving the coverage crisis. It’s time to start from scratch and make it simple.

This isn’t what I voted for. I did not vote for a man who allows his administration to solicit opportunities to water down the initiatives he promised. I did not vote for a man who reaches across the aisle to find a place to sit. I did not vote for a few more years. I did not vote for “Well, we could.”
Lend me your ear! Astrologers are on top of the Coleman-Franken recount story…Fox threatens to shoot President, Reverend Jackson–symbolically, at least…protesting for better health care…no prosecution for torture memo authors?
