Ralph Nader on Democracy Now! discusses the inherent flaws in the White House’s bargaining with the very drug companies that have exploited patients, manipulated research, and gouged our economy in the first place.
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).
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.
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.

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?
