Dems push for HC by 2010

Democrats are pushing Senate leaders and the White House to speed up key benefits in the health reform bill to 2010, 
eager to give the party something to show taxpayers for their $900 billion investment in an election year.

The most significant changes to the health care system wouldn’t kick in until 2013 – two election cycles away. 
With Republicans expected to make next year a referendum on health care reform, Democrats are quietly lobbying 
to push up the effective dates on popular programs, so they'll have something to run on in the congressional midterms.

Democrats are anxious to mix the good with the bad since some of the pain would be phased in early, 
including more than $100 billion in industry fees that critics say could be passed on to consumers.

“We want to be able, within the cost framework and the implementation framework, to have as much start as early 
as possible, even though we know all of it can’t,” said Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), a Finance Committee 
member who is working with other senators on the effort. 'And the White House wants to have as much as possible to start.'

It's crazy to wait until 2013 to start the changes.  That's one of the oldest tricks in Washington.
"Let's demand that coal companies reduce carbon outpout by 20% in the year 2018."
Then they sit on their hands until 2017, then they claim they can't make it in time.

Show us something now - show us that you're moving now.

Besides, we have no guarantee Obama will win a second term.
A Rethug could win and scrap everything so let's get this damn party started.

Sex, death, energy, power, politics 
and heavy makeup -- it's all here!

From my good friend Symbolman of TBTM

 Subject: Pee Bush 

Pee Bush was inspired by Pat Tillman. U.S. Army Infantryman, Paratrooper, and Ranger he enlists as a Navel Reserve Intelligence Officer?

I was inspired by my Father who was an Airborned Infantryman. So I enlisted as an Airborne Infantryman.
Pee Bush is just another slithering member of the GOP exploiting the death of a U.S. servicemember.

 Subject: Pee Bush

> "PeeBush claims he was inspired by his grandfather H.W. Bush getting shot down at sea . . . "

According to Kitty Kelly's biography of the BFEE, Poppy was under orders to ditch his plane in the ocean 
because his crew couldn't wear parachutes in the gunners nests and had no way to get out.  Poppy bailed out, 
leaving his crewmembers to die.  Under normal circumstances, Poppy would have been subject to Court-martial, 
but because his daddy was a big-time Republican, he wasn't even disciplined.  But after that, nobody would fly 
with the Old Wimp and he was shipped Stateside to sell war bonds.  

Sound familiar?  Like Father, like Son.

Maybe it's time for Obama to hold a press conference and explain the plan to us.

Afghanistan is kinda like the United States, without the united part.
Seems like all of those states hate each other and it'd take a Saddam to knuckle them under.

Obama is considering sending 40,000 more troops there - why?

Mike Malloy Live

Oklahoma vs. Women 


In May, Okahoma state lawmakers approved a law requiring that abortion providers fill out a 
10-page questionnaire for each procedure, and that details of abortions be posted on a public Web site. 

The law’s purpose is political. Its real aim is to persuade doctors to stop performing abortions by placing 
new burdens on their practice, to intimidate and shame women, and to stigmatize a legal medical procedure 
that one in three women have at some point in their lives. 

Last Monday, the Center for Reproductive Rights succeeded in obtaining a temporary restraining 
order from a state judge that blocks this abortion of democracy from going into effect on Nov. 1.

Roger Ailes for President?

The daily back and forth between the White House and Fox News is good for both sides. It’s good for the politics in general. 
For one thing, the fight is deeply self-referential and true inside baseball and in the other Fox Chief Roger Ailes, that dark figure 
who has been bending media to the conservative cause since the Nixon administration.

Politico said on Friday that "friends and associates" were encouraging Ailes to run for president in 2012.

Ailes will be 73 in 2012; he’s vastly overweight (and sensitive about it); he has health problems and can’t walk very well; 
he’s ghoulish looking; he’s deeply and nuttily paranoid (he discusses freely, albeit in lowered voice, the plans of radical 
Muslims to storm his house in New Jersey); and he may not be capable of doing 15 minutes without an offensive utterance.

Suffice it to say that nobody is encouraging Ailes to run for president.

I want him to run because he prodiced Pigboy TV back in the nineties when
they put Chelsea's face on the screen and talked about "The White House dog."

Pigboy always claimed "an unnamed staffer" pulled that nasty stunt.
Yeah, unnamed staffer always get to produce your show, Pigboy.

And who says Ailes is "ghoulish?"

Why i Hate that NiWH 
 by JC Arenas 


If there has been any question as to how seriously Obama takes his presidency, the mounting evidence is clear. 
In nine months in office, he's attended 22 fundraisers -- Bush only participated in six in his first year in office. 
While Obama has been raising campaign money, he has left a "gone fishing" sign for the leaderless Democrats in Congress.
Obama has already played golf as many times in nine months as Bush did in almost three years.  We knew Obama 
was a sports fan, but he seems to be more concerned with victory on the greens and hardwood than on the battlefield...
Liberals were incensed over the number of "getaway trips" our former Fuhrer made to his ranch in Crawford. 
But will they join us in criticizing Obama's leisure activities? Apparently the president he has too much time on his hands.

For starters, go fuck yourself.
You pick on Obama for golf, basketball and fundraisers but he's still right there in Washington DC.

Bush spent one third of his presidency on vacation and when he was given the PDB in Crwaford 
that Osama was determined to strike America in the coming weeks, Bush stayed on f-ing vacation.

When Bush was told the levees in New Orleans wouldn't hold when Katrina hit
the bastard flew to Arizona to attend yet another birthday party for the old geezer.

And you think Obama should shun golf?

Admit it - you think the White House is for whites only.

Subject: pilots 

After Reagan was elected I had a fitness center near LAX.  
An air traffic controller showed me a letter written by Reagan who promised 
to back their union, and strike, if they'd support his Presidential candidacy.  

Of course, Saint Reagan f-ing lied and ended up stabbing them in the back. 
There's nothing, absolutely nothing, worse than a Repug,  except a neo-con Repug.  
Or a spineless Dem.
All The Very Best,
 Kevin K.

Reagan got real lucky.

After firing the control tower dudes, if there had been a spectacular mid-air collision,
things might have been rough going, even with the media making excuses for him.

"Callista and I are going to think about this in February 2011.  And we’ll decide,

"The conservative base is wising up and pushing back. And constantly invoking Reagan isn’t going 
  to erase the damage Gingrich has done to his brand over the years by wavering on core issues and 
  teaming up with some of the Left’s biggest clowns. Picture the cabinet: Al Sharpton as education secretary. 
  Scozzafava as labor secretary. Al Gore as global warming czar. Noooooo, thanks."

Subject: swine flu 

You were right in the first place Bart.  With a slight nod that the writer had a bit of a point.
Purell and equivalent hand sanitizers do kill viruses. 

Anti-bacterial wipes are sometimes less effective at killing viruses than those called 
germicidal or disinfectants.  So you’d really want to go with one labeled as such.

The specific CDC wording is “Wash your hands often with soap and water. 
 If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.”

No need to go with the consumer name brand though.  There are many alternatives.  
We have hand sanitizer dispensers at the doors and elevators at the NIH.  
I think we do know a little about viruses and bacteria here.

Reid unsure about Reid's public option
 Democrats stay on fence, waiting for Reid to decide


Harry Reid's risky decision to bring to the chamber's floor a health-care bill containing a government insurance plan 
was met with skepticism by moderate Democrats, who said they still do not know whether they could support a public option on a final vote.

The latest challenge to Reid's move came from  Bush-loving Kissyface (I-Conn.), who told reporters that he was "inclined to support" 
a procedural motion to bring the measure to the floor. But he remains opposed to a government-run insurance plan in any form -- even 
with an "opt-out" provision for states that Reid said Monday he will include in the legislation.

U2 at the Rose Bowl
  by Juanita

After having missed the live broadcast from the Rose Bowl (it was too nice to be indoors; much better by the bay in San Francisco, 
but that's another story), I settled in the next day to watch the entire 2 hours, 21 minutes and 22 seconds of the YouTube rebroadcast. 
The concert scene opened like so many others:  panning the crowd, all warmed up from the opening band, The Blackeyed Peas, 
the crowd going a bit wild...the glimpses backstage as the band made their way to the stage.
Ah, the stage.  A great design consisting of a circular main stage with an outer ring "runway" connected by bridges.  
I wanted to be in the audience in the inner circle.
The drummer, Larry Mullen (looking extremely fit in his delicious white tee-shirt with a scorpion on the back, but I digress), 
is the first out...sits down and starts playing.  The rest of the band comes out with the opening song "Breath." 
Sometimes it was a bit hard to hear what was said and the video dark at times, but song after song pulled me in a bit more. 
Bono of course appeared to be having a great time.  I could hear the huge crowd singing along... at about 35 minutes in with 
"I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" that's when, for me, the immersion was complete.  And then with "Elevation" 
the crowd was going wild.
The lighted display above the stage was amazing--the commander from the Internation Space Station had a message that was beamed out.  
How cool was that?  Later in the concert there was a cartoon astronaut/spaceship thing projected out but it was very hard to understand 
what it was saying...but it still looked cool and...spacey.
The message of unity and peace radiated out in the music...and a message from Desmond Tutu about the One Campaign was 
followed by "One".  I had a feeling that Bono would sing "Amazing Grace" at one point--I could feel the spirit leading the music there.
Bono was bathed in blue light and I was blown away by the passion and emotion in his voice...only to be awestruck 
when he did sing "Amazing Grace" as an intro to "Where The Streets Have No Name".
All in all, a spectacular show--unbelievable what technology can deliver these days...and even nicer that it was free.

Obama's PDQ Presidency 


Obama had been secretly plotting his transition since the spring of 2008.   He had launched a massive transition project 
involving more than 200 policy wonks offering advice. Everyone knew Obama intended to get going quickly after the election. 
They just didn't expect that "quickly" to Obama meant hours, not days. On day one, Obama was prepared to narrow 
most of his cabinet choices to two or three names and move ahead to big policy decisions.

Obama's tenure really started in November, a full year ago, when he became the de facto co-president.  Obama was
technically a private citizen - a man with no constitutional authority. But these were formalities. For the first time in modern 
American history, an incoming president made some of the most important decisions of his term - about the economy, mainly, 
but also about energy, education, and health care - before taking office. Obama was already governing.

Worst. Album. Ever.
 by Michael Dare

Blood on the Tracks is a masterpiece by absolutely any standard. On the other hand, if his Christmas album, 
Christmas in the Heart, is the only Bob Dylan album you've ever heard, you would have every right to rank him 
somewhere between Mrs. Miller and Tiny Tim in the pantheon of singing oddities. There will never, ever, be worse 
versions of these songs. Impossible. 

There's no blood on these tracks, just phlegm, buckets of phlegm, tangled up in sputum, you need shelter from the expectorant, 
Heimlich me in the morning, the idiot cough, if you see him, say gesundheit, he's gonna make me grateful when he goes. The songs 
aren't uplifting, imbued with subtle texture, but Leonard Cohen times Tom Waits divided by Josh Groban. Dylan finally proves to 
the world that he can sing worse than ANYBODY, just try to sing worse than this, I dare you.

Democratic Versus Liberal
  by bad seed Jonah Goldberg 


The Democratic party is having some of its problems these days because they misread their pre-election unity. 
Lots of polls suggested that America was becoming more liberal under Fuhrer Bush (at least on a bunch of issues). 
Obama won handily without ever tacking back to the center in the general election. In short, those eager to find 
evidence that the country was poised to lurch leftward had lots to go on.

But perhaps that had more to do with the fact that country was fed up with the Bush bastards. The Democratic Party's 
leaders are a lot more liberal than their voters (even more true when it comes to committee chairs who are to the left 
of the average Democratic congressmen).

The Democrats came into power in 2008 thinking they had a huge mandate for liberalism, 
when they really had a huge mandate for competence. 

ha ha

Obama misunderstood this. They used a lot of 'pragmatic' rhetoric, but they governed from the left, starting with 
the calamitous stimulus bill. Obama's personal popularity is still sustaining him, but it seems to me that the Democrats
missed an enormous opportunity. I don't think they're doomed or anything like that. But, they've managed to rebrand 
themselves as a very liberal party again, and that's a problem when 80% of Americans don't describe themselves as liberals.
