Well at least that's how the Establishment frames the debate. "At last, Congress has given us health." "Obama has signed reform into law."

RIDICULOUS. This bill is about neither health nor reform. It is further centralization of power and wealth within the already-cartelized medical-pharmaceutical-industrial-governmental complex. It is a triumph of the Privilege Sector, which is Big Government fused with Big Business. In reality, it is corporatism: the corporate state.

Oh, and that reminds me of something the kindly Mr. Mussonlini once said. "Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power."

Patriot is the new hip

KUDOS TO SPIN for finally taking notice of a real grassroots movement. No, I don't mean the Republican party hacks who have glommed onto the Tea Party idea because they recognize one last opportunity to keep the sheep from bolting the Republican pen. I mean the artists and activist types referred to in the Spin piece, the types who were there pre-Fox,  the original Ron Paul Tea Partyers, the real heart and soul of the freedom movement. Liberty is hip again and the mainstream just caught on. The original American Revolution was, after all, led by the young men and women.

The whole schmizole: Massa outs
bipartisan corruption in Washington

AS IF READING FROM ONE script, the punditoblogocracy wants to skewer Eric Massa. We’re used to pundits and talk show hosts – and even supposed straight news reportage – condemning the accused without the benefit of trial, or without any evidence at all. We’re used to comedians seizing on any goofy story for yuks. It amuses us to see some public figure caught in some version or another of "so when did you stop beating your wife?" But why the seeming unanimous viciousness against the former Congressman accused of sexually harrassing a male staffer? How are people who weren’t anywhere near the situation so sure that the accusation of an ex-staffer must be true?
