Obama Calls for Universal Healthcare


In a speech in Iowa City the other day, Barack Obama promised that, if elected president, he will sign a universal healthcare bill into law by the end of his first term.

While his promises sound great, there just isn't a heck of a lot of substance in this particular clip. Maybe it's just too early in the campaign for detailed plans, but, boy, would I love to hear some. If Barack can lay out reasonable, feasible plans to attain any of the main democratic platforms this election, he can win this in a heartbeat.

Countdown - Paying Pakistan

Click to view video.

Did you know that the Bush administration has been paying Pakistan more than $1 BILLION a year to catch Osama Bin Laden? That's over $5 BILLION (of your tax dollars!!) already, and still no Bin Laden... And to top it off, they don't even have to be accountable for where all the money has gone.

I was just going to post one of her videos tonight, but I couldn't resist. She's just so fucking AMAZING! Completely unique and special and gifted, her voice is a national treasure.

Bill Richardson's Energy Plan


Here he goes again, sounding all rational and educated and - frankly - qualified for the job. I hope his campaign gains more traction, if only to put greater pressure on the democratic front-runners in the presidential race. I haven't heard near enough from the top three (Obama, Clinton & Edwards) on what they actually plan to do once in office. And this country is starving for a leader with some real, feasible plans.

PS - Richardson has also recently legalized medical marijuana in New Mexico. "I don't see it as being a big issue," he said. "This is for medicinal purpose, for ... people that are suffering. My God, let's be reasonable," he said.

How is that the word "reasonable" coming out of a politician's mouth is like music to my ears?

Comey's Damning Testimony

Ooooooooooooooooo..........!!! The shit has hit the fan!


James B. Comey, former Deputy Attorney General, under former Attorney General John Ashcroft, testified before the Senate that some serious shadiness went down in regards to the NSA warrant-less wiretapping program. According to Comey, while Ashcroft was in the hospital suffering from severe pancreatitis back in 2004, Alberto Gonzales (then White House Counsel) and Andrew Card (then White House Chief of Staff) stormed into Ashcroft's hospital room and tried to pressure a very sick man to sign off on the wiretapping program. (Shady!!) To Ashcroft's credit, he refused, as did Comey, because the program was in clear violation of the law.

Well, it looks like the White House went ahead and continued the wiretapping program anyway, without any certification from the Department of Justice. But then, Ashcroft, Comey, their chiefs of staff, and Robert Muller, head of the FBI, all threatened to resign if the White House did not alter the program to comply with US law. To top it off, Gonzalez testified before Congress, a year ago, that there were no major concerns by anyone at the Department of Justice over this program - a flat out lie, under oath.

In an interview with Keith Olberman (linked below), Jonathan Turley, constitutional law professor at George Washington University, asserts that this is a clear impeachable offense. Under FISA, spying on citizens, without a warrant, is a felony. The President knowingly committed a crime.

Hitchens Slams Falwell

Click to view video.

Christopher Hitchens appeared on Anderson Cooper 360 to give his views on Jerry Falwell's life and work. Let's just say that Hitchens is opinionated...

And while I am personally not one to dance on any fresh graves, I will say that, to a certain extent, I have to agree with the following quote from Hitchens:
"The empty life of this ugly little charlatan proves only one thing: that you can get away with the most extraordinary offenses to morality and to truth in this country if you will just get yourself called Reverend.

Who would, even at your network, have invited on such a little toad to tell us that the attacks of September the 11th were the result of our sinfulness and were God's punishment if they hadn't got some kind of clerical qualification?

People like that should be out in the street, shouting and hollering with a cardboard sign and selling pencils from a cup."
------------------------------------------------
In case you need a refresher on just why this criticism of Falwell is deserved, here are some of Falwell's own words:
"Throwing God out successfully with the help of the federal court system, throwing God out of the public square, out of the schools. The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way -- all of them who have tried to secularize America -- I point the finger in their face and say, "You helped this [9/11] happen.""

"AIDS is the wrath of a just God against homosexuals. To oppose it would be like an Israelite jumping in the Red Sea to save one of Pharoah's chariotters."

"If you're not a born-again Christian, you're a failure as a human being."
Read more of Falwell's propaganda.

UPDATE: I think TMZ.com probably has the best send off for Jerry Falwell of them all.

Ron Paul - Not "Republican" Enough

The republicans held their second round of debates last night on Fox News. From what I've seen, it was about as disgusting as you'd imagine. Their questions focussed heavily on pandering to the radical base. So it comes as no surprise that Congressman Ron Paul - AKA the only reasonable and rational man on the stage - came under fire for agreeing with the vast majority of Americans, that the US should pull out of Iraq and adopt a diplomatic foreign policy. The only shocker for me was that they didn't chase him out of there with pitchforks and torches.

Here, he is asked if he is "running for the nomination of the wrong party".

Duran Duran - Here, Piggy Piggy...

One day, many many years ago, I was walking back from dinner at the university cafeteria with a bunch of kids from my dormitory. It was a lazy summer evening in Manhattan and we were all shuffling about, muttering about this and that. Then this one cutie in the group started to sing a few bars from the Duran Duran song "Rio". I looked over and knew right then and there that this boy was going to be my friend forever. We spent the next few hours singing and gushing and babbling like kids, over this stupid band from the 80s that we loved so dearly.

Well, today is my Piggypoo's birthday. And to celebrate, I am posting an extended tribute to one of the most awful and fantastic music groups of all-time, Duran Duran! Below are 14 of their greatest hits - one for every year that I've known him.

The "Sicko" Investigation


Here's a local ABC report on the 9/11 workers' response to the Bush Administration's investigation of Michael Moore.

Moore's new film "Sicko", to be released next week at Cannes, takes a look at the healthcare system in America. Apparently, in one segment of the film, Moore took ailing 9/11 workers to Cuba for medical treatment. The Treasury Department alleges that this is a violation of the trade embargo and has launched a civil investigation. The film's production company says it is prepared to fight. No trailers for the film have been released. "Sicko" is slated to hit theaters on June 29th. (I CANNOT WAIT!)

Mountaintop Removal


In recent years, coal companies have begun a new process of mining that involves blowing the tops off of mountains. More than 450 mountains in the US have already been destroyed. The environmental damage is incalculable. Already, Kentucky has suffered the worst environmental disaster east of the Mississippi. And no one is talking about it, or doing anything to stop it.

This is a thing of beauty... Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) just rips the Head of the US Justice Department to shreds and makes him look like an ignorant little worm. I fucking love her!
