THE GOOD FROM IRAN: First victory: World doesn't look at us as terrorists anymore! #iran #iranelection

PRAY FOR NEDA, her family and all Iranians


  1. Could anything be more bizarre than calling yourself a Christian, but doing the opposite of everything the Great Peacemaker taught?
  2. "Stay away from the Bible Belt; they have GUNS down there!" Funny line from Alan Arkin film. These "Christians" are the opposite of Christ.
  3. @kittenramone Maybe they don't know that Christ is the root of the word Christianity because the vowel sounds are different!
  4. Good News From Iranian Tweet: "
First victory: World doesn't look at us as terrorists anymore." #iran #iranelection
  5. RT @slpHDtwitts Nobel Peace Prize winner Iranian feminist Shirin Ebadi calls fr new election http://bit.ly/ka4P2#iranelection #NEDA #gr88
  6. People can be restored, revived, reclaimed and forgiven. Never throw out anyone.

HEALTH CARE, LIKE POLICE & FIRE DEPT
SHOULD NOT BE FOR PROFIT!

WHY ARE THEY SO AFRAID?

Republican lawmakers are afraid of a lower cost health care option, because they are afraid people will choose it!

Medicaid and Medical are already the best socialized medicine we have in this country. Of course in France they have a much better system, as in every other industrialized nation.

BREAKING NEWS: During the last five years, over 1,000 people on Terror Watch list bought guns. "Gun rights advocates said showing up on a terrorist watch list should not be grounds for being denied a gun." - New York Times


Read more below, but first, let's say a prayer for Neda, the young woman killed in Iran simply for kneeling in protest. And then this weird story..

___________________________________

I have to post this again from the New York Times: "Gun rights advocates (NRA) said showing up on a terrorist watch list should not be grounds for being denied a gun."

ARE THEY CRAZY??

A VIDEO-CAMERA ON EVERY CORNER? SPYING FOR PROFIT ON AMERICANS

Is this right? 165 closed Circuit TV cameras spying on the city of Lancaster, which has a population of 55,000. Who is watching everyone through these cameras all day long? Not the government, but a private company that says it wants to reduce crime. Hmmm. Sounds suspicious. What about our rights to privacy? Could evidence on these tapes ever be used to blackmail people in divorce cases? Could evidence ever be misinterpreted? Isn't it kind of creepy to be watched from every corner all day long? "No one has the right to see who comes in and out of my front door," says one L.A. Times reader. This has crossed the line, don't you think? Or do you. Maybe I'm wrong.

MASSIVE REPUBLICAN PROPAGANDA AGAINST LOW-COST HEALTHCARE FLOPS: 72% WANT A CHOICE! Republican lawmakers are afraid of a lower cost health care option, because they are afraid people will choose it!

When It Comes to Health Care, Why Do Republicans (and Some Centrist Democrats) Hate Americans? by Mitchell Bard, 06.22.2009 http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mitchell-bard

You see, the Republicans are speaking out of both sides of their mouths. They are quick to tell you, as Graham did, how terrible government-run health care would be, with long waits for inferior service. But when you argue for a public option, with people being given the chance to keep what they have (with private insurers) or opt for a new public option (especially for those who don't currently have any insurance) that would compete with the private companies, then the Republicans say that the private insurers would be driven out of business because they can't compete with the public plan. But if the government-run plan would be so bad, why would the private insurers lose to it? Shouldn't Americans, terrified at the big bad government trying to run their health care decisions, run screaming away from the new public plan and into the arms of the wonderful private insurers they adore? What is the risk? And if the government-run plan is so good it would be an improvement over the private insurers, why are the Republicans against it (if they can't admit that they are protecting the business interests over the health of Americans)? Isn't the goal better care at lower costs?

On Terrorist Watch List, but Allowed to Buy Guns
By ERIC LICHTBLAU
June 20, 2009

WASHINGTON — People on the government’s terrorist watch list tried to buy guns nearly 1,000 times in the last five years, and federal authorities cleared the purchases 9 times out of 10 because they had no legal way to stop them, according to a new government report.

In one case, a person on the list was able to buy more than 50 pounds of explosives.

Gun purchases must be approved unless federal officials can find some other disqualification of the would-be buyer, like being a felon, an illegal immigrant or a drug addict.

“This is a glaring omission, and it’s a security issue,” Senator Frank R. Lautenberg, the New Jersey Democrat who requested the study, said in an interview.

Mr. Lautenberg plans to introduce legislation on Monday that would give the attorney general the discretion to block gun sales to people on terror watch lists.

  1. I've always wondered why my former fellow Republicans were so damned frightened of a National Health Care plan? To here them talk, you'd that "Socialized Medicine" was right up there with "Satanic Baby Killing Cannibal Cults" in terms of evil.
    Here's something that the TheoCons don't like to talk about.
    One of the major reasons that we are losing jobs to foreign countries is that the health care costs here are so prohibitive. It's cheaper in the long run to outsource jobs to nations that have a national health service.
    Therefore, a National Health Plan in this country would IMO, make us more competitive and possibly slow down out sourcing.

  2. Republicans are running scared because, they are one by one, actually, many by many...are being exposed for the crimes they have commited. Self severing people. The last 8 years of what happened to our beautiful country and all its people...is now an exposed crime. Did George and Company really think we were that dumb? While we were terrified over terrorists...and watching the repug fed media..."the war on terror" was a shameful fraud...a distraction for us here in the states. We were being robbed blind by our own leaders. The people didn't select them...the money bought them...and they delivered. All the while "the war on terror" (not the war on oil...or the 'illusion of terror') ran on and on and on...what the hell are they fighting for? Everyone is dying over there...Americans and regular normal people just like you and me from the war torn countries.

    If George and Company wanted to battle the war on terror...HE SHOULD HAVE DONE IT RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA...SECURING THE BORDERS...SHOWING UP WHEN THE SUPPOSEDLY UNBREACHED LEVYS IN NEW ORLEANS FLOODED AND KILLED PEOPLE JUST LIKE YOU AND ME.

    Everything they stood for was so Un-American.

    I love what good ole Joe Biden said.

    When George and Company were elected (yeah right) into office...George put up a "FOR SALE" sign on the White House's front lawn.

    Freedom bought changed hands and was sold.

    Those that let, without any feelings of...I don't know...shame...sadness...guilt... etc... are now being head hunted... where did the money go? Why did you do that? How could you let that happen?

    They are scared because the new "Left Team" is coming to get them...and they have no where to hide.

    Pray.
    God forgives you...and we as Christians should forgive you...
    BUT...not everyone is like that...
    Sorry.

He reminds me of the guy that caused WW2.
    And Big and Little George...Daddy's War...

    George and his (not on drugs again...mmmm) twitching, messed up...beady eyed face...in his rare public speeches...lying like his father...lying...lying...lying.

  4. i am not too up on the debate over health care, and the idea that there would be competing ideas in the private sector and in the public is not too odious. what i do know is that socialized health care is not all it is cracked up to be. one of my former professors and good friends is from italy, and they have that kind of health care there. his dad recently had a heart attack, and after being stabilized, he went out of the country for care. he could afford it, and if he had waited for the government run system to respond to him, he would not have made it.

    and just because it is cheaper for business to operate in another country because of health care, does not mean the care is better there. you guys should know that. businesses will do what is in their own best interests, if they are exploiting labor somewhere that allows it legally, it wont bother them much.

  6. Yea, that never happens with Insurance companies, huh?


    And of course a unverifiable personal anecdote is worth about as much as the guy purporting it, which in Big K's case means it's worth nothing.

    In England and Canada they enjoy excellent health care, and the fact that they vote to keep it tells us all we need to know about it.

    Guys like Big K trust the government to put a fire out, or protect him from criminals via the police and federal law enforcement agencies, but he doesn't want them giving anything that would actually help them, i.e. medical care.

    It's ok if the government sends our kids to school, but if those kids get sick or injured, f$#k em.

    So goes the mind of the right wing hypocrite, who claims to believe in Christ but hasn't an ounce of Christs teachings in him.

    Well your humble opinion is right on target.

    That's the number one reason for losing jobs in the US. Nationalized health care means lower company overhead which means jobs in the US which means increased revenue which means more taxes being paid which means ....

    It's a win win.

    But don't tell Big K that.

  8. hey worf,

    you know i dont trust the police protection, that is why i own my own guns. you knew that.

    i dont trust the government with a whole lot, actually. i know they are needed, but should be as small as possible, in my opinion.

    and the personal anecdote is necessarily vague since i am not sure if the people involved want their names out there. especially on political blogs. you should know that too. but his real world experience with exactly the subject is noteworthy. and btw, he supported obama for president and shares many of the views expressed here. he is not a conservative by any measure.

    massive government involvement would mean massive government spending, and massive tax increases. things that have historically not helped job creation, or business growth. and once you buy into it, there is no turning back. you cannot put a sunset provision on something like that, so caution is rightly observed when implementing something of that scale and importance.

  45. "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed" worf. and unless you missed it, the supreme court held it as a personal right somewhat recently.

    however, police, fire, health insurance, lollypops, marrying anything you feel like. none of those are rights guaranteed in the constitution. its funny how much people can imply from it though. there is no expressed right to privacy either. it just isnt there. you guys would say it was left out, i say it was deliberately omited.

    as to worf owning a gun, i remember him telling me once that he would never touch the things. he had an uncle who came back from a war and never picked up one again and he thought that was cool and blah blah blah. so i dont think he has one. i cant say anything about threats though. that is between yous guys.

  47. mike,

    i wasnt pissing and moaning about the rich having to spend their resources. i was pointing out that the waiting list is so bad that they could die before the state could respond. in my friends case, if the cancer was not operated on immediately, his dad ran the risk of it not being operable by the time the state got to him. so, he got on a plane and got it done elsewhere. i dont care that he spent his money, i care that there are a lot of people who cant do that, and your solution will leave them in the cold.

    our system sucks, and i dont have an answer for it. but i am saying you might want to rip a page out of your own book and not give the pres a "rubber stamp" without vetting it. i dont think that is too much to ask.

    yeah your SO WORRIED about the poor that you want them to keep a rigged sham of a healthcare system where the objective is to deny access to health coverage to as many as possible and allow them to die just to maximize profits for the greedy CEO's..........thats how concerned for the poor you are duncetron..........Why are you so hell bent on NOT ALLOWING people to choose which healthcare system they actually want.

    YOU seem to feel that denying people to choose what they prefer and YOU dicating what they should be able to receive is the way to go.............lets see how that plays out at the polls in 2010

    "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed" worf. and unless you missed it, the supreme court held it as a personal right somewhat recently.

    however, police, fire, health insurance, lollypops, marrying anything you feel like. none of those are rights guaranteed in the constitution


    Well no, the right to bear arms is tied to a "well regulated militia".

    But the courts have given you pussies the right to suckle yourselves to sleep at night with your 357, so whats the problem?

    Saying that something is or isn't in the constitution doesn't mean it can't be a right as our laws develop.

    The US code is 100,000's of pages long, and none of it's found in the Constitution.

    Just because somethings not in the Constitution, doesn't mean it's not something we need.

    You believe that the sick and injured should fend for themselves.

    So, I have a solution.

    Lets let all you cocksuckers who want the right to have guns, but not the right to have an injured child cared for, fend for yourselves.

    The rest of us, the majority, will have health care and care for the sick and injured in our borders.

  58. mike,

    i was an insurance agent for 8 years. auto and home insurance, but the principles are the same. i can assure you that they do not want people to die to maximize profits for a few people. unfortunately, the problem is quite complex, and difficult to summarize on a blog. the idea of insurance is to spread the risk, so if you are the unlucky one who gets a big financial hit, the rest of the community helps out. unfortunately, this also means that if you are a guaranteed risk, insurance either does not want you, or you will pay more for it. if you are really pissed about the situation, next time you are in the hospital, get an itemized bill. those 50 dollar tylenol are a big part of the problem too. when the hospitals pump up the cost, insurance premiums go up. when you go to the hospital and they order unnecissary tests, they are not helping you.

    also, one last potentially suprising thing is the government has a big hand in the insurance industry already. it is highly regulated. if the company actually makes too much profit the department of insurance comes down really hard on them. companies can neither make too much or loose to much by law. they make money by investing somewhere else, like the stock market. they want to pay out in benefits what they bring in, in premiums, ideally.

    Wow, Voltron's left nut speaks.

    :D

    Well fatso, I did read your "article" from the Gazette.

    It was a story purported by ONE WOMAN.

    ONE pregnant woman, who claims she was turned away, however the article states the hospital was closed due to a "national holiday".

    Here.

    Here's what the article you steered us to actually says, since you clearly didn't take the time to read it.


    Yesterday was as a statutory holiday for many Quebec hospitals.

    About 5,000 babies a year are delivered at St. Mary's, which is highly regarded as a birthing centre.

    In March 2007, it was rated as one of the three best hospitals on the island of Montreal.

    In terms of patient satisfaction, Quebec Health Minister Fran├žois Legault put St. Mary's at the top of his list.

    Last month, the province designated St. Mary's a university-affiliated hospital, which recognizes it as an accredited teaching hospital.



    Gee, that article seems to support our position, instead of yours.

    Those raw figures were then whisked away into the poll kitchen, the secret "weighting" ingredients were added, and the recipe came out puffed up with far more Democrats: 345 Independents, 339 Democrats, and 211 Republicans. That broke down into the stark 14-point gap between Democrats (38%) and Republicans (24%) that the Times cited, with independents at 38%."

  86. mike,

    no one is happy with their healthcare. i had my coverage double in price and the deductible went up in the last few years. if you think i was jumping around in unbridled glee afterwards think again. i think going after the medical industry is the first step. doctors are running around in hugely expensive cars and putting them in expensive homes, which is great unless you realize the hospitals they work for are broke. the hospitals will spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on equipment that will be obsolete in a short period of time, and is unable to be salvaged at the end of its useful life. they are horribly wasteful places. if the government stepped in and worked on that, i wouldnt have much of a problem there. i would hope that a competitive system could be implemented to fix the shortfalls of the system. that way little really needs to get changed.

    the first thing i think everyone needs to come to terms with is that somewhere, all of our ideas, and even the presidents will leave someone out. it is such a big problem that you cant just put a bow on it and fix it.

  88. That the Canadian system needs improvement is not in question.

    But it does work.

    Better than ours.

    And in England, it's even better.

    Would universal health care be an overnight panacea for health care problems in our country?

    Of course not, and no ones saying it would be.

    But the cost of health care right now is prohibitive except for the extremely wealthy, and getting insurance ONCE ILLNESS IS DIAGNOSED IS IMPOSSIBLE.

    Which is why my best friends 4 year old daughter, had to have her leg amputated due to cancer.

    Because the insurance company took his premiums for years, then DROPPED HIS DAUGHTER when the disease was diagnosed after a few treatments.

    That's the truth.

    And scumbags who don't want to admit it are just pebbles in the way of change, who will be swept away with the tide.

    no one is advocating letting people die wantonly. not on this post, anyway. i am concerned that if we jump into something that the cure will be worse than the disease (pardon the pun). wait times are a problem. a big one. they are commulative. so you wait 6 months to see a doctor. then you wait 6 months to get the tests ordered. then you wait 6 months for the results. then you wait 6 months to get seen again. then you wait 6 months for the treatment. that is not a solution and that is a reality in places like italy and canada. and if you think that is better than backrupcy, as horrible as that may be, i can find people who would disagree. plenty of cancer patients simply do not have the time to wait for that, for an example.

    I read an article where people from Detroit were going up there for cataract surgery and face lifts. Stuff like that.

    volt and worf,

    according to my babysitter, a canadian national, you cant get health care there if you are not canadian.


    Well, when you're done fondling your babysitter go rent the movie "Sicko" and WATCH as Moore follows an American citizen into a hospital for treatment.

    Or watch the special 20/20 did on it last summer, where people BUSSED up to Canada to get health care and medicine.

    It's not legal dumbass.

    That's why I said "IT'S NOT LEGAL".

  105. The bottom line is most people want health care. National health care.

    But a handful of right wing throwbacks are busy preaching right wing talking points and holding up the process for the rest of us.

    If you don't want it, then OPT OUT.

  106. Worf & Mikey,

    I AM sorry for your losses.

    However, if anything that just puts you too close to the situation to make a rational call.

    And Mikey, I'm sorry I doubted you. Kevin said you posted before about it and it got deleted. I didn't see it, and I'll take his word for it.

    And considering how you guys have behaved in the past what was I supposed to think? It's not like you haven't used any bit of personal information you garnered against us.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Also, what you're not mentioning is that most Americans who go to Canada for their non life threatening afflictions do not use the Canadian system anyway. It's fee for service. And for trivial services Canada can be cheaper.

    This doesn't even take into accout those who go to buy prescriptions only...

    nice worf. i just sold the stuff and tried to make sure people knew what it was. underwriters make the decisions for who to drop and why, not the agents.

    i did read your posts. worf, did you read mine? my friends dad would have died if he waited for the system. he had to go out of the country, because there simply isnt anyone he can get in the country even if he has the money. what do we do in those situations when the person isnt loaded? do you have an answer to that? i am currently watching my wifes grandfather go through this same thing here. and i have a friend, she is only 26, who is looking at not making it to 30. my sister has ms. she was diagnosed with it when she was quite young. she is hoping to see her kids graduate from high school. i am not immune to these things. i just have a different perspective on how to fix it.

    "love your enemies," right? "the greatest spiritual growth can be found with those who annoy you." the host of this blog repeats herself on those points daily. have you read them? heard them? lived them, at all!! the first step is to see people you dont agree with as not inherently evil. its hard. it took me a long time. you might want to try it.

  120. On a constructive note here (I hope), Rahm Emanuel has a brother named Ezekial. He's a doctor and just wrote a book on healthcare. I saw him on C-Span last night and he sounded very impressive. He seems to think that we can achieve universal coverage without going the single-payer route (he evidently has some issues with it). I'm thinking about checking out the book or at least researching it a little. Hey, the more we know, the better, right?

    Why is that a liberal failure?

    Isn't that equally a conservative failure?

    Here's where it's at.

    You guys think man isn't perfect, so therefore you chose to do nothing.

    And in lieu of nothing, you chose to do as little as possible.

    We on the other hand likewise acknowledge man isn't perfect.

    But liberals still chose to do "something". And they choose to do as much as can be done.

    Do they always succeed? Of course not.

    But they succeed more than you, because they are willing to try, while you guys choose to roll over and cry.

    Conservatives realize that man is imperfect and harness that imperfection through capitalism to achieve the best possible outcome for as many as possible.

    Do some fall through the cracks? YES. Do some resist participating? YES.

    But by and large even our "poor" have a standard of living envied by many in the third world.

    Liberals seem to think that with the right people in charge they can legislate man into perfection.

    Hence the grandiose ideals of some sort of utopian society where all are good, nice and generous, everyone is taken care of even the least among us.

    This has historically failed everywhere it's been tried. What's more it's lead to genocide, mass murder and poverty for those under such a system.

    where have we heard these things before?

    "free" healthcare is a step in that direction, and it will be headed by a huge government beurocracy that bankrupted social security and the school system. we all know how good those well oiled machines are performing these days. i cant remember who said this, but a senator on c-span the other day was saying that if you go to the dmv, and think they are going a great job, you will like the health care you get under the proposed plan.

    What you were doing is creating a straw argument defining what "liberals" must do according to your definitions.

    The only way you can argue against a liberal or anyone supporting them is to invent an image of liberals, and define their policies for them, then proceed to argue against your own fabricated straw men.

    Read that: "Oh I'm sorry. Did I give you the impression I was going to engage in a reasoned debate? -Just accept what I tell you as gods given truth..."

  186. "First, you know I'm independent, and not really liberal on everything. You just paint me as one so as to make it easier to argue with me."

    You're liberal on everything we've discussed so far tonight. You call independent just to avoid the argument.

    no, but you deflected the arguement. as much as that supposedly means to you, i would think you would refrain from doing it.



    Nope.

    I didn't even deflect the "argument".

    I am answering all "coherent" questions posed to me as rapidly as I can, from both of you.

    Those "questions" were not coherent enough to be noticed or demand a response.

    If you wish to get out your Speak-N-Spell, and repost them so I know what the hell you're asking me, I'll take another look.

    Otherwise don't pester me.

    Do me a favor peabrain. Don't tell me what I am and am not.

    I'm for national health care because I am a "Human Being".

    It has nothing to do with politics.

    Well it isn't much of a victory when I waste several hours arguing with a nut who thinks our government should send our kids to school but if they get sick or injured they're on their own.

    Victory would be guys like you stepping aside for once and letting civilization advance, so the rest of the world doesn't have to suffer under the tyrants and despots you continue to stand up.

  191. uh,

    worf, truman was president truman was in office during the beginning of the korean war. and it was the policies of his administration that led to our current war fighting stance. that you have to wage a nice war, bomb half of a bridge, that sort of thing. mcarther hated that policy and thought that it was prolonging the fight and costing more lives. i think history has vindicated him on that one.

  193. And he started a war that he couldn't finish.

    It was republicans who started that one, and left it in a stalemate.

    Not democrats.

  195. This is how Big K starts strawmen, pretending to "correct me".

    It's like the Inquisitions one.

    I say "the Inquisitions spanned 700 years" , and he says "nuh uh the Inquisition lasted only 400 years".

    And now I say Truman was President at the start of the Korean war and he says "Nuh uh, Truman was President at the start of the Korean War".

    It's like arguing with a 4 year old.

  196. "Second, I think winning WWII, while you clowns STARTED a war right after, and lost it, pretty much paints a picture of what you guys are about."

    my scroll button works just fine.

    Uh,, moron, one straw argument at a time.

    I'm answering your most recent post.

    I told you already I had no idea what you were asking no do I have no idea what you were asking on those two "questions" you posted.

    I invited you to repost them in a language resembling English, and explain what you're asking me and I'll be happy to answer them.

    But for now, can we stick to your most recent strawman, about Korea and who was President?

    Mr ADHD?
