I grew up reading comic books wanting to be a superhero. Comics taught me that those who speak the truth are heroes, all the rest are liars.

Pawlenty: Do As I Said Not As I Get!

So ex-MN governor...er...well AWOL Governor Pawlenty said on ABC's Top Line that if in charge he would 'opt-out' of public health care for Minnesota...

CHALIAN: But you would lead a charge in your state to opt out if that was an option available?
PAWLENTY: I think so because I don’t like government run health care.

So--pawlenty currently is covered under government provided healthcare...after all his healthcare is provide by the state of Minnesota...and he's on record as supporting Medicare and Medicaid in the past...but now...doesn't want that (public coverage for anyone...else?)...

Seems to me that Pawlenty will do anything...say anything...support anything if it gets him elected to national office...Someone should inform him that ethics, morals and values doesn't blow with the wind...and especially when he's harping against the very thing he has...government sponsored healthcare!

Message to Pawlenty... if like you say 'you personally would like to opt out', I'm sure Minnesotans would thank you for saving their hard earn tax dollars by dropping your health insurance!

Abandon All Hope

So let me get this straight...30 (THIRTY!!!) Senators voted to continue contracting with firms that force women employees to agree not to sue componies if they are RAPED as a result of their employment...

All thirty should immediate resign from the senate for their support of felony behavior. Shame on everyone of you with mothers, sisters, wives, daughters....Shame on this soulless group for even thinking they could justify voting for rape...The Republican party hasbecome totally void of morality.

BTW, the bill was our Minnesota Jr. Senator, Al Franken...thank you Mr. Franken for continue to look out at the interest of our daughters, mothers, sisters...

Record profits on Wall St...sigh... so do I blame them or Obama for escalating the war on Afghanistan? What about Pakistan, Iraq and Iran. And it turns out our occupation has become larger, longer and made for more resistance:
WASHINGTON -- A recent U.S. intelligence assessment has raised the estimated number of full-time Taliban-led insurgents fighting in Afghanistan to at least 25,000, underscoring how the crisis has worsened even as the U.S. and its allies have beefed up their military forces, a U.S. official said Thursday.

Wow, big surprise not...If I get it, why doesn't Obama or could the whisperings be correct... that Wall St. now runs our country now...

"Because the people here really aren't in charge. Wall Street is in charge."- Rep. Marcy Kaptur

Just when did I miss that election?

Friday's If Onlys

Gone in 60 seconds
So substract Chris Coleman from gadzillion and that leaves...all the rest...

Being bitch slapped twice
If you are a domestic abuse victim and lived in Idaho, Mississippi, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Wyoming and the District of Columbia, well then, eight of the 16 major insurance companies have the right to deny coverage on the rationale that it's a pre existing condition...

Tell me again why we should demand health care reform NOW!

Sure they look ordinary...
Be a hero? We need you more than ever...be the change you want to see.

Whew..what's that smell?
What if you have a zombie encounter? Well you can one of two things...see Zombieland (two thumbs up from me!) or come to the zombie pub crawl this Satuday.

What if... 'I'm just about as happy as I can be'...

All Yours

Your Dream
Can't we just sign up for Congress' health plan?

Your Nightmare
The U.S. labor market weakened in September as 263,000 payroll jobs were lost and the unemployment rate rose a tenth to a 26-year high of 9.8%, the Labor Department reported. It was the 21st consecutive month of job losses.

Your Altered Reality
..."the recovery package is part of a Democratic conspiracy to "direct" funding away from Republican districts, so Democratic districts can "suck up" all federal funds. Bachmann doesn't think this will work because, as she [guess who?] put it, "We're running out of rich people in this country."

Your WTF
Sure you're artist, engaging, successful, and make great movies...but I have two girls that were once thirteen...What Polanski did was rape. Youthful error, stage mom, teen lolita aside...This was a middle age man who preyed on a ninth grader...It's a crime.

Your Cowboy Sense of Humour
Newsmax contributor John L. Perry wrote a column yesterday about politics. It went like this: “There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America’s military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the ‘Obama problem.’ Don’t dismiss it as unrealistic.”

The Cost of Staying Alive

SEIU has a new focus on health care reform...It one that anyone like myself who has a chronic illness (pre-existing) knows only too well..do we pay the rent, buy food, put gas in the car...or pay the doctor, pharmacy and insurance premium...not a pretty choice but one millions of Americans make a year...all in the name of staying alive while maintaining hugh profits for a few...

These modern day crooks make Jesse James seem acceptable...
