Why I’m for killing the health care bill, and why it will not be killed.

It’s not just because it’s a watered down giveaway to the insurance companies, one that mandates a large number of people to purchase a product from a private corporation with nebulous guarantees that they will get the service they are paying for but absolute guarantees that the power of the government to be brought down […]

Wherein I (belatedly) express my irritation with Jon Kyl

The fabulous Jennifer Johnson, Communications Director of the State Dem Party, sent ’round a media advisory this afternoon: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Dec. 4, 2009 Arizona Democratic Party announces 2009 Hall of Fame inductees The Arizona Democratic Party is pleased to announce its Hall of Fame inductees for 2009.

McCain was ranting on the floor yesterday, blaming President Obama for earmarks McCain’s fellow senators stuffed into the bill. Perhaps, before McCain castigates the White House, he can spend some time talking to his […]

T-t-talking about generational theft
