health CARE REFORM WHY IT WILL DESTROY THE CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENT tpmcafe 12-22-09
Interesting take on how this will all play out (assuming it passes the conference committee). But the real fun is the rock 'em, sock 'em, bare-fanged, knock-down-drag-out debate in the comments. You want to know what your opinion is on this one? They're more than happy to tell you!
I'd be interested to know how any of you feel about this, and whether you think passage will redound to the benefit of the Dems, Repubs, Blue Dogs, Teabaggers or, dare I say it, the people.
Personally, I go back and forth, alternately damning all these misanthropic sots, then looking at the half-a-loaf that may be a game-changer going forward. I believe Bill B's take in his PP post this AM strikes the balance. To quote another keen observer of the bi-polar Yankee mentality,
"Americans always do the right thing... after they've exhausted every other possibility."

One of our sharpest journalists appears to agree with this writer. Watch Max with Amy from this recent Democracy Now:
-FASCISM GOP LOCO 'Republican Gomorrah' - Max Blumenthal w Amy #23.00 dn 09-04-09
More in-depth, you say?
-FASCISM FUNDIES' COUP OF GOP 'Republican Gomorrah' - Max Blumenthal #1.10.59 fora.tv 09-29-09
If you click on Q-4 (Question 4), Max tells us why he thinks passage of even a bad health care bill weakens this gang of cuckoos who are, when all is said and done, nothing more than suicide bombers who haven't quite gone the final mile to claim their 72 virgins; at least, most of them.
Max's book explains the roots of the Christianist/Dominionist movement; not as old as you might think, with some key tenets - homophobia & abortion - less than 40 years old. One thing for sure, it is anything but biblically-based.
You will better understand the attraction of a basically brainless-by-design Palin, how truly unoriginal this philosophy is and why the authoritarian personality - with critical-faculties safely short-circuited - will always present the greatest threat to our species' forward movement and survival, and why it's short and miserable life may have already peaked in the U.S., but will still inflict major damage on this nation and the world in its death throes (only to be replaced by the next inanity insanity).
Any more in depth and you'll need to buy the book, you cheapskate, you.
