Good ole republican liars

How many time must we listen to their lies before we finally get smart and vote the far right out of government for good? First it was Sadam has chemical weapons. Then Sadam was developing nukes. Then it was Sadam was tied to terrorists. Then it was Sadam was part of 911. Then it was Obama is Muslim so he must be tied to terrorists. Now it's Obama was not born in this country. Obama is responsible for the (pick one): banking crisis, auto industry failure, stock market collapse. I'm surprised they haven't tried to tie him to the Lindberg baby kidnaping and the cause of the great Depression. And the mouth breathing knukle dragging fools will believe this crap. Maybe we should have that endocternation camp set up for the Rushs and the Becks and the Malkins along with about a dozen senators and congressmen who perpetuate the lies of the far right. They seem to have this dillusion that if the keep pushing this BS that people will believe it. Bush did have one thing right when he said "you have to keep repeatin the propaganda over and over again". What they fail to realize is that there is now the internet and their facts can easily be checked from government web sites that say exactly what's being voted on in any given day. But I guess their base is either too stupid or lazy to check the facts.

So Congress is working on a healthcare bill right now or at least they were until the kids were let out for recess. You could sit there and watch the attempt at creating a fix for a dying healthcare system. It's really sad that instead of coming together and having each side of the political isle add some positive piece to the solution puzzle, the republicans are lock step in rejecting any idea presented by the democrats. I was fearfull that the republicans would just keep adding enough ammendments which would need debate (and they did present some 364) that the bill could never get to a full floor vote. Little did I know that there is a proceedure for dealing with this tactic. You simply delay any debate on an ammendment thereby shoving the matter back at one's opponent. Much like someone lobing feces at you and you are able to deflect it into a box in the corner.
Then there's the issue of commentators and our own neighbors trying to tell us what's in the bill. I think I covered that in an earlier post. How can they say they know what's there when there are three bills at present? There are two in the house and one in the senate. The republicans once again are using peices of the bill mostly out of context to get in their talking points and politicizing something that should not be politicized. We've seen how the republicans have dealt with healthcare over the years. Their last big addition to healthcare was the doughnut hole drug plan. Makes me wonder how many people that plan bankrupted and what was the logic behind it other than to make the drug companies more money?

So let me conclude by saying that something will get passed in the fall. And I don't expect it to be a perfect end all piece of legislation. I'd expect that there will need to be adjustments to it later as the American people see exactly how well it works or doesn't. But it's time to call out the liars and coerse those that want some status quo because as we all know the status quo will no longer survive.

Demeur - We have to get some sort of health reform on the books, because once the American people get it, no one will ever take it away, just like Social Security, Medicare etc. Bush talked about setting up private accounts for younger folks instead of Social Security. It died a death.

I think that it's just going to turn out to be a mess that isn't useful to us and will be expensive.

On the bright side I'm looking forward to my next camping trip. I'd rather die while camping instead of in this fucked up town.

Being worried about dieing is way overrated. It's just the last interesting thing I will be doing, and blogging about if I can.

So you are a socialist? Not that it is a bad thing, as long as you are willing to help pay for it.

The Top Ten Indicators That the Government Has Changed Our Health Care Plans

(10) Your annual breast exam is done at Hooters.
(9) Directions to your doctor's office include "Take a left when you enter the trailer park."
(8) The tongue depressors taste faintly of Fudgesicles.
(7) The only proctologist in the plan is "Gus" from Roto-Rooter.
(6) The only item listed under Preventive Care Coverage is "an apple a day."
(5) Your primary care physician is wearing the pants you gave to Goodwill last month.
(4) "The patient is responsible for 200% of out-of-network charges" is not a typographical error.
(3) The only expense that is covered 100% is "embalming."
(2) Your Prozac comes in different colors with little M's on them.
(1) You ask for Viagra and they give you a popsicle stick and duct tape.

Agreed, we must get something passed before the end of the year. Even if it needs some tinkering, it had better be good, and not only for the people's sake. Honorables who want to get re-elected had better take care to make it good and pass it.

One nitpick, though. There are two bills in the Senate, one each from the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee and another from the Senate Finance Committee.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
