Better Old People Should Die Than Vote Democratic

Lest this go unnoticed: Republican Lawsuit Shuts Down Flu Shot Program, Claiming Democratic Benefits

HOUSTON, Nov. 2 (AP) — The city has stopped offering free flu shots at early voting sites after Republicans alleged it was a ploy by the mayor to lure more Democrats to the polls.

Fascism Less Fashionable Among Fox Viewers

Ha. This is the long War, kids. We've got to wean the addicts, one at a time. But let's rejoice, for now. And hope that as the scales fall, they will not regrow over anytime soon. Read below the fold...

I Voted!

I feel shitty for not posting this a month ago, doubly so because I recently spoke with a friend who didn't quite understand the deadlines and bullshit between him and casting a ballot; my friend may not be able to vote this year because of it. Anyway, I voted today. I sent off my absentee ballot with all that "we guarantee it will get there and by a specific date" stuff, I consider the extra postage well spent. I've bitched and moaned and griped about our Scary Voting Machines here for years, so I won't remind you, except to say that you shouldn't pop the champagne just yet. Read below the fold...

Adventures In Health Care

Thread: 

It's been just my luck to have a niggling health problem develop right when I'm newly arrived, and I got to spend the better part of my day dealing with it. Not because I love being fawned over by clinicians, but because I'm so new to the area that I haven't had time yet to find a doctor and otherwise line up all my little health care ducks. So I got to experience a little "community health care," a nice euphemism for what the poor "enjoy." Let me remind everyone that we're approaching 50 million uninsured in this country. I feel confident that what I experienced is at the upper end in terms of quality and service. So I thank my lucky stars for the little I did receive. Read below the fold...

How to Make Things the Way They Ought to Be

Oh my

No, make that oh, my goodness!

You know, sometimes I get... Oh, I don't know. Jaded, perhaps. Hardboiled. I just can't get... excited any more.

But then I read a URL like the one in the URL to Think Progress above:

WaPo: "Clouds hang over at least 15 GOP seats"

From www.vastleft.com:

The GOP forecast is bleak, barring a high-pressure front bringing election fraud to the region, and there's a zero-percent chance of moral values:

Thursday Morning Kapok Blogging

Around twenty years ago two young men (who still live in the L.A. neighborhood) planted a number of Kapok trees on a street two blocks over from where I live. I was out walking the other day (with my digital camera at the ready) and was caught by the angle of the sun and the way one particular Kapok tree turned and reached and soared and held ten thousand dreams in silence. I took some pics.

Gen. Grant Knew Better Than This

Google "Civil War" and "Petersburg Campaign." Then read the latest from Patrick Cockburn, who clearly would be writing this with letters of fire in the sky if he had the means to do so:

Barnyard Politics

"Education -- if you make the most of it and you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well," said Kerry, a Massachusetts Democrat. "If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq."

To quote our whimsical Secretary of Defense, "Oh, Henny-Penny, the sky is falling!" Somebody told the truth. It's too bad Kerry left out the punch line: "Just ask President Bush." Read below the fold...

Never apologize to a Republican!

I don't hear a lot of Republicans apologizing for trashing the Constitution--or, if it comes to that, for their kinks about animals. Or that whole page thing (Hi, Denny!) Or New Orleans. Or $8.6 billion lost in Iraq. Or Iraq.

And if anyone isn't ready to make nice, you'd think it would be John Kerry. Read below the fold...
