Honesty? Honestly...

Springtime for Winter (and Canada)

You know that part of The Producers (and I’m referencing the original, Zero Mostel, Gene Wilder version) when the opening sequence of “Springtime for Hitler” starts? And the audience sits there, staring, slackjawed, as the parade of grotesque stereotypes of German “culture” are paraded past?

Well, that was my impression of the Olympic closing ceremonies.

I deserve health care, you don’t

that’s a paraphrase, but given comments from a certain drug-addicted blowhard, an accurate sentiment
clipped from
Limbaugh Lauds (Socialist) Medical Care in Hawaii
I received no special treatment.”
in Hawaii, no one gets special treatment, because everyone can get it.
all Members of Congress that have a medical office paid for by taxpayers
Dick Cheney who had socialist pacemakers implanted paid for by the government, and George W who had a government-paid socialist colonoscopy while in office.
Members of Congress over 65 get single-payer socialist medical care from Medicare.
since 1974.
the costs of everything
the highest in the nation,
health care premiums in Hawaii,
are nearly the lowest and their costs per medicare beneficiary are the lowest in the nation.
Rush does not live in Hawaii and so his costs are not covered
having that “socialist” system for more than 3 decades has not reduced the quality of the care he received.
Rush appears to have survived his encounter with socialist medical care.

If Hawaii-style medical care is good enough for Rush Limbaugh, it is good enough for me.

do who I say, not what I do

in closing: “I’ve long thought that the solution to the cheap, cost-free moralizing that leads very upstanding people like Karl Rove to want to ban same-sex marriages (which they don’t want to enter into themselves, and thus cost them nothing) is to have those same “principles” apply consistently to all marriage laws. If Karl Rove, Newt Gingrich, Rush Limbaugh and their friends and followers actually were required by law to stay married to their wives — the way that “traditional marriage” was generally supposed to work — the movement to have our secular laws conform to “traditional marriage” principles would almost certainly die a quick, quiet and well-deserved death.”

Rove: Champion of “traditional” divorce

an outspoken opponent of same-sex marriage, citing “5,000 years of understanding the institution of marriage” as his justification.  He also famously engineered multiple referenda to incorporate a ban on same-sex marriage into various states’ constitutions
Texas’ “no-fault” divorce law,
basically allows any married couple to simply end their marriage because they feel like it. 
one of the states which has constitutionally barred same-sex marriages, and has a Governor who explicitly cites Christian dogma as the reason to support that provision, yet the overwhelming majority of Texan citizens make sure that there’s nothing in the law making their own marriages binding or permanent — i.e., traditional.  They’re willing to limit other people’s marriage choices on moral grounds, but not their own, and thus have a law that lets them divorce whenever the mood strikes.

Why does Hitler get such a bad rap?

But then why do people try to equate Obama to Hitler, if he was such a nice guy, Pat?

First They Came For The Nazi Apologists…

If only the powers that be at understood that Adolph Hitler actually was a man of peace, they wouldn’t have acted so rashly in removing their site’s link to a Pat Buchanan column essentially blaming England for World War II.

no worthy news organization should employ a commentator who engages in such vile fiction.
if you want to read Buchanan’s column (“Did Hitler Want War?”), written to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Germany’s invasion of Poland, it’s here (screen shot below). Be ready, though: It truly is a litany of lunacy.

Unsubstantiated rumor as fact.

Shot at the newsstand outside my office. Another reason why you should believe absolutely everything you read about celebrities.

(the Us Weekly cover espouses “her European Diet Secrets” right under “No Workouts.” It seems the Star is less kind.)
