Sorry it has been so long since the last update. I have been (and continue to be) sick.
Three major new blogs coming in the next week though. Stay tuned.
Until then, some thoughts on a host of issues-
Conservatives-Sorry, but it is not the 1700's anymore. We are not a thirteen state agricultural country. In a country as big as America, in this globalized world, we cannot afford to NOT have a strong federal government. (Full blog on this coming later).
Tea Parties=sensationalism. Why did the Tea Parties, and now the "Tea Parties 2", receive twice as much coverage as the gay rights march even though the movements had the same number of people? And, on top of that, the Tea Parties have been proven to be politically organized by former Republican legislators like Dick Armey.
In 2002 Dick Cheney said "The Taliban regime is out of commission [in Afghanistan], permanently." Obviously, this guy knows what he is talking about. /sarcasm. (This had to be right around the infamous "Mission Accomplished" scene...). Now, the Dick is chastising Obama for taking time to make a deliberate decision about sending more troops in to a war zone. Please, Mr. Penguin, shut the hell up.
60% of Americans want a public option. At least 53 Senators are behind it. The White House is behind it. Three different House Committees have passed bills with it. Fuck the obstructionist, this needs to get done. Do it, Harry Reid, do it.
