McCain's Health Care "Reform" = Voodoo Economics and Double Talk - Shadowproof

McCain's Health Care "Reform" = Voodoo Economics and Double Talk - Shadowproof

John McCain yesterday to illustrate why his ideological addiction to unfettered markets cannot solve America’s health care crisis. Not only would it fail to cover everyone, his proposal could effectively strip millions of Americans of the employer-based coverage they now have without any certainty that what replaces it would work or be affordable.McCain proposes that we replace the current employer-provided insurance system with individually acquired private insurance. It’s analogous to Bush’s plan to undermine Social Security and replace it with private retirement plans.The proposal is...

This gang of thugs abandoned every principle they ever professed and instead became the party of corruption, dishonesty, incompetence, coddling the privileged and systematically neglecting the nation’s needs, while debasing the nation’s honor with torture, kidnappings, warrantless spying, aggressive war and unparalleled lawlessness. It is a record unequalled in our history.But even now, their capacity for meanness stuns us. That meanness is on full display in for supporting...

Morning Cuppa: Bush In Retirement

Morning Cuppa: Bush In Retirement

George Bush is an ambitious man. Apparently our President has two major goals he wants to accomplish after he retires from the White House, as revealed to Robert Draper, who’s writing . That’s Robert, staring incredulously at our President who is showing him a copy of his Plan for Victory in Iraq, in a .First, he wants to prove that he can make more than the $50,000 – $75,000 fee his dad gets for each speaking engagement. A worthy goal for any insecure son. He can tell his enraptured audiences how he started several wars, then mismanaged and lost them all, although he may have to check...

Little Paul Ryan, 12 Years Old, Has Nightmares about Central Planners, Whose Levees Are Saving New Orleans from Drowning - Shadowproof

Little Paul Ryan, 12 Years Old, Has Nightmares about Central Planners, Whose Levees Are Saving New Orleans from Drowning - Shadowproof

Hoover Dam by Ansel Adams, National Archives (Wikipedia)Paul Ryan’s speech to the Republican National Convention will be praised by unthinking pundits today for its success is revving up the GOP base — and you can only shake your head at what that takes these days. From early reactions, I suspect the speech will be a litmus test for how much of the media made it to adulthood.
