sicko 3

It’s amazing what we put up with as so called health care,

I saw Michael Moore’s Sicko, today. Another one of those movies that had me either laughing or crying (literally). It’s amazing what we put up with as so called health care, and the path to who’s to blame is clear and straight.

This is a must see movie for anyone who plans on voting in 2008. It’s time the politicians were asked serious, open ended questions… both on the right and left. As the movie says if we can spend trillions for war, then there is money for health care.

lieberman and constitution

New York Times:

Facing Senator Joseph I. Lieberman’s independent candidacy, Republican officials at the state and national level have made the extraordinary decision to abandon their official candidate, and some are actively working to help Mr. Lieberman win in November.

You need know nothing more about Lieberman than this tidbit. It’s not an accusation, it is actually what the Repugs are doing… That’s how important Joe is to them.

Amazingly easy to understand, isn’t it.

today show

The (alleged) president of the United States is told by the Supreme Court that he and his administration have been violating the Constitution and international law (impeachment offenses with anything other than a Republican Congress) and we get Starr Jones???

Oh… My…. God!!! I get up this morning and as is my habit, since it iis the top of the hour, turn the Today Show on to catch the headlines for the day, then I usually turn to Democracy Now for the real news in depth.

So, I figure the news headlines will contain some mention of the Supreme Court ruling yesterday wihich basically says that bush has been breaking all of our laws.

President Bush violated every standard of the military code, the US Constitution and international law with its order for military tribunals at Guantánamo.

And, what is the Today Show showing at 8am (when they usually give the national and international news headlines??? An interview with Starr Jones… What!?!? Oh,… My,… God!!! How is that possible??? The (alleged) president of the United States is told by the Supreme Court that he and his administration have been violating the Constitution and international law (impeachment offenses with anything other than a Republican Congress) and we get Starr Jones???

Even if we get this clown out of office,an uninformed populace will put someone like him back in office. No wonder Katie left.

time running out

I would expect that now, before the fall elections, you’ll see Repugs falling all over themselves saying things like, “we don’t know him,… we never even liked him.”

Bush’s Approval Rating Falls to New Low – Yahoo! News:

“WASHINGTON – More and more people, particularly Republicans, disapprove of President Bush’s performance, question his character and no longer consider him a strong leader against terrorism, according to an AP-Ipsos poll documenting one of the bleakest points of his presidency.”

(Via Yahoo News.)

I would expect that now, before the fall elections, you’ll see Repugs falling all over themselves saying things like, “we don’t know him,… we never even liked him.” I would hope that people remember that it was the Repug congress that passed everything bush wanted (he still hasn’t vetoed anything) and that it was the Repug congress that allowed the credit corporations to write the bankruptcy bill. That it is the Repugs who are putting the constitution in danger and are, even as this is being typed, looking for ways to make spying on Americans without court approval, legal!!!

But that’s the Repugs. Many Dems have worried me as well. Some have been outright heroic though. As much as I’ve been dissapointed by the lack of back bone shown by the Dems, I cannot see myself voting for any Repug. No matter how liberal they appear, they all just fell in line rather than challenge this corrupt administrtion.
