Free speech huh? How's that hope and change workin' out for ya?
Thanks for the link Christina.
From Red Orbit comes this news: "...nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, has become the largest ozone-depleting substance emitted through human activities."
Anyone remember the Ozone scare back in the seventies along with "Global Cooling"?
We're going to die laughing at least.
From an article on CBS News...
"We have some wonderful telephone tapes in which Johnson described to a newly elected Ted Kennedy how to get Medicare passed," Marone said. "He said, Don't let 'em cost it out. Don't let 'em project the costs down the line. It'll kill you.' He thought that if people knew the full costs of Medicare it would never have passed, and he kept trying to lowball the estimates. And this was before the Office of Management and Budget. But we believe - we say in the book - that if we knew the costs, Medicare, one of the two most popular programs in America never would have passed."
Now we do know the price tag for health-care reform - hundreds of billions - and for millions of voters, it's a tough pill to swallow."
And this opinion from Democratic Underground
"I agree with your OP. These numbnuts are too dumb to know that a strong public option will eventually become single Payer, but the insurance companies know that. So they fight tooth and nail."
Again, emphisis mine.
Is that what you think of the American people? We are NUMBNUTS? What an elitist.
I strongly disagree. Haven't these guys seen the town halls? I believe the majority of Americans see through the hype, just as they did back in LBJ's day. It's a shame (sham) that the progressives were able to get Medicare passed.
Ted Kennedy has died and the Dem's are going to run him up the flagpole to see if anyone salutes.
Cue the intro music. The movie starts in 3, 2, 1... "Let's win one for the Tippler"

Obama: illegal immigrants deserve free basic health care, but will legal taxpayers foot the bill?
Libs are pushing the envelope...
"Petitioners were not permitted to bury their heads in the sand and ignore their obligation to ensure that their tax return accurately reflected..." "In the end, reliance on tax return preparation software does not excuse petitioners’ failure to review their 2006 tax return."

A little levity...
Houstonians and S/E Texans will get this. I lol'd
While I understand that first responders and emergency personnel are put at risk by people who refuse to evacuate and then get into trouble, I still believe it is their right to stay. I think a better option would be to allow people to stay, if they wish, with the understanding that no help will arrive for emergency situations. Period. If necessary, make them sign a legal document stating such. I live on a bluff, so I'm not as worried about storm surge as the next guy. Besides, if I see a Category 3 coming my way, I'm outta here. Like the saying goes, "I may be dumb..."
It is my belief that the Legislators should amend this law and I have written to my Representative Allan Ritter about it. Part of his reply is as follows...
"A lot of people have weighed in on the most controversial part of the bill, including city and county officials and leaders, as well as various state officials across Texas. Representative Ritter appreciates your input because constituents are the ones that matter. He will remain mindful of it during the next Legislative Session—if similar issues come before the legislature.
The main concern is the implementation of the law. Representative Ritter understands people being concerned over the mandatory evacuation provisions in the bill, however, it's just how Representative Eiland of Galveston put it, "it's the implementation of the law that is going to be the test of whether it's good or not.""
I agree. The law's implementation is key. How might this be abused? One wonders.
This law is bound to get challenged. I just wonder how many will get stuck with needles before it's overturned. Will the intrusion never stop? Video report here from KVUE.
