Read this headline and weep:
Thursday, August 20, 2009
Did you know that most States in the Onion allow people to openly carry guns, including assault rifles?
And that many allow the carrying of concealed weapons?
The President is trying to bring health care coverage to millions of American uninsured citizens.
The Republicans want to kill this initiative because they know it will murder the presidency. Their interests are entirely political, self-serving and without concern for 50 million of their fellow citizens who are always a cough away from catastrophic illness.
Their M.O. is fear and more fear and then a dash more fear.
Fear sells deodorant and pampers and Kotex and cars.
On Monday in sunny Phoenix a nice man showed up at a rally protesting Obama with an AR-15 slung most casually over his shoulder.
The AR-15 is not a bag made by Prada.
So the radio and TV talk show hosts sit in their comfortable air-conditioned and totally secured studios viciously feeding more fear and frenzy to the pot, while Joe LunchBucketHead goes packin'.
This is way beyond ugly.
Try really sick.

B.C. Lottery Corp. raises weekly play limit to $10,000Hello...
Raising the Internet gambling limit on PlayNow is cynical and thoughtless.
The best argument this idea-and-morality bankrupt government can make in defense of the indefensible is "well, other people do it." Meaning that other Internet sites allow huge limit or no limit gambling.
