The Insurance Mandate and Stopped Clocks

The reactionaries have it right this time, for all the wrong reasons (basically, because Obama adopted it).

First off, the health care disaster in the U.S. is now being blamed on broke uninsured people who, after they go bankrupt, 'pass the costs along to all of us' - as Justice Ginsberg indicated today. What an awful thought process the liberals are having to contort themselves into to support this 90's era Heritage Foundation plan.

Second, the government has no business forcing me to buy anything from a for-profit insurance company. I don't have to have a car, the example of car insurance is a false equivalency.

Spike Lee's Address

I see Spike Lee took up the spirit of vigilantism and retweeted the address of a wrong George Zimmerman. He's truly a disgusting human being and his limited and generally backward political views are a big reason he has only made a few decent films. His career burned out fast and his fame over the last 15 years is basically as a rabbit's foot for the Knicks. The lesson of the Martin killing is the fiasco that occurs when you can have any person acting in any way they want to establish 'order'. And that includes the pigs.

A Party Of Professors and Adjuncts

The Left Forum, going on now in New York, is almost entirely devoid of a working class character. This is particularly true when one looks at its leadership. You are not going to sustain radical politics with tenured professors or wanna-be tenured professors. Does one have to have a PhD or be in the process of getting a PhD to be a considered an expert ? This is the framework of the bourgeoisie, not a way to empower or give voice to a working class. More like lecturing perhaps.

Trayvon Martin

The Trayvon Martin case is very serious. We are talking about a kid was walking down the street minding his business, threatening no person or property, who was murdered by a vigilante for no other reason than he was black. This is the kind of thing that can spark riots and movements, and deservedly so. It may be the fear of such a reaction that is moving the Justice Department to shuffle some papers around in a feint of action.

Plunging Into the Abyss

The United States has been down this squalid road before, in regard to Iraq, and it doesn’t end well for America.(1)

We are ruled by madmen who, if ever defeated, will certainly be tried as war criminals. They will do anything to shore up the fading empire of America.

Looks Like Romney Agrees With Rush

Mitt Romney, on a rope line on Ohio a short time ago, was asked about Rush Limbaugh's "slut" verbiage about a young woman testifying on birth control, and replied, per POLITCO's Reid Epstein, "I'll just say this, which is it's not the language I would have used."

I'll just say this, what exactly is wrong about enjoying sex ? It's the big issue they dodge in high school health classes, if it's all about procreation, why are most people doing it or wanting to do it ? God's test on all us ?

Frankly, we should all be blessed with the fortune of being slutty.
