The Future of Journalism

Posted by John Wellington Ennis

Damon Weaver has been determined to get his interview with President Obama, and he finally got it.  Let this be an inspiration to other journalists and documentary filmmakers: Even a 10 year-old can land the world’s most powerful man with some moxie (and dimples).

Our Vets Get the “Socialized Medicine” they Deserve

Posted by John Wellington Ennis

Define Irony: Republicans are not afraid that a public option and health care reform will fail—they are afraid it will succeed, and everyone will notice how unhelpful they are.

In this clip from Crooks & Liars, Sen. Bernie Sanders calls out Sen. John McCain on the fact that veterans and seniors already get the “socialized medicine” that they are scaring us about, and yanking it would cause an uproar.  He even calls for a vote on eliminating the Veterans Administration to make his point.

Exposed: The Real Death Panels

Posted by John Wellington Ennis

Here’s a thought: instead of screaming about non-threatening non-existing policies that have been made up by demagogues like Glenn Beck, Newt Gingrich, and Sarah Palin, let us examine the real crisis at hand: For-Profit insurance companies show the restraint of Enron, and the compassion of Guantanamo Bay.  These are real stories of sick families suffering under our healthcare, and it has nothing to do with how they vote.

Packing Heat for Healthcare

Posted by John Wellington Ennis

My mistake — it is totally okay to bring guns and incendiary signs to presidential town halls where our nation’s health care system will be determined.  Threatening other people’s health at a healthcare event is OKAY, PEOPLE, because much to my dismay, Obama is Literally Hitler, as explained by this helpful site.

Trolls for Hire

Posted by John Wellington Ennis

Ever wonder why there are so many craaaazy comments on blogs promoting birth certificate conspiracies, advancing far-flung theories like Sarah Palin is credible, and alleging all kinds of cockamamie socialist/fascist thoughts (which is oxymoronic) against our popularly elected Commander-in-Chief?

In this tough economy,  jobs are being offered from the conservative corporate shills looking for barely literate hotheads to spend all day posting hateful comments on blogs to create the impression that there are actual Americans who rant and hate eveything about the U.S. government, everywhere, forever, since the beginning of time.  Likewise, they are hiring for hotheads at healthcare rallies to derail any consctructive conversation that might actually lead to healthcare for Americans.  Who says Republicans don’t create jobs?

Trolls for HIRE!
