No waiting here

Just got a call from the GI clinic – they have to cancel my appointment this Friday and move it to January. Aren’t you glad we live in America, where people don’t have to wait for medical treatment?

Catch 22

So they can’t find the money that’s missing, they just know it isn’t mixed in with the money that’s left and the clients are shit out of luck. Freedom!

I told you Louis Freeh isn’t worth the space he takes up.

Believes in Newt Gingrich! Charlie Pierce, whose well never runs dry, brims over with critical response.

How about I be me (and you be you)

Canada is pulling out of the Kyoto protocol. Guess all that money that American right-winger has been pouring into the country is paying off for the corporations!

Wayne’s world

That wacky, crazy Wayne LaPierre, CEO of the National Rifle Association (“We Sell Fear”©) is gearing up for the election year fundraising blitz. Imagine, if you will, President Barack Obama carrying out a full-scale national crackdown on guns. Now that you’re done laughing, read just what paranoid flames Wayne is willing to fan to keep his million-dollar paycheck:

Obama administration officials are deliberately keeping gun owners in the dark about the president’s gun-control agenda as we head into next year’s national election, because administration officials know that when NRA members and gun owners show up at the polls en masse, anti-gun candidates lose.

The Obama campaign’s strategy goes like this:

Neutralize gun owners and NRA members as a political force in the upcoming national election by pretending to be pro-gun or at least not focused on pushing a gun-control agenda;

With gun owners neutralized, Obama will be able to win the election. After the president is re-elected, he won’t have to answer to voters because he won’t have to face another re-election battle;

Launch a full-scale, all-out assault to rip the Second Amendment out of the Bill of Rights through legislation, litigation, regulation, executive orders and international treaties — in short, every lever of power at the administration’s disposal.

Barack Obama spent his entire political career proudly and publicly pushing for the most radical anti-gun positions you can imagine. He endorsed a total ban on the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns. He opposed right-to-carry laws. He voted to ban nearly all commonly used hunting-rifle ammunition.

During the presidential primary debates, Obama even vowed to re-impose the discredited Clinton gun ban, which banned many commonly owned firearms used for hunting and self-defense.

Obama hasn’t had a sudden change of heart; rather, he’s making a purely political calculation by staying quiet on the gun issue until the time is right. In the meantime, he’s gearing up for his second-term assault on the Second Amendment in a number of ways.

Hah! It’s more than a tad ironic that the CEO of the NRA is selling the same line Obama true believers do: “He’s keeping his powder dry! Just wait until his second term!” The truth is, the president has shown no interest in actually doing anything to control guns, although he occasionally offers tepid verbal support, like after Gabby Gifford’s shooting.

Does it take a thief to know a thief? If so, it’s no accident that the two most ruthlessly dishonest men vying for the Republican presidential nomination are accusing each other of corruption. More here.

Rock and roll, etc.

Boys club, it’s always been. Probably won’t change in our lifetime, either.

Iran

The Washington Post ombudsman says yes, the paper is incorrect in saying Iran is definitely pursuing nuclear weapons.
