It’s no coincidence that Grassley has receive $2.9 million from health care firms and is also one of the most vocal opponents of the public health care option. I wonder when us regular folk can stop having to compete with large corporations to win our representatives’ favor.
Apparently some of the top restaurants are using induction burners
that heat steel or iron cookware with magnets. It means that there's
no ambient heat and you can touch the "burner" immediately afterwards
because it's cool, heating only the pan.
It is also significantly more efficient than using gas or eletric,
saving money and energy.
This is awesome. Totally worth seeing how it gets better as it goes on…
I would like to know how that woman can go around accusing people of violating the constitution with apparently no knowledge of it on her part. Very happy to have left the Republican party every time I see these liars and lunatics out there.
I hope your old and false ideals die with you, lady.
Good on McCain for being real though. Finally a little bit more like his old self, that earned him his nickname back when he was genuinely a cross-party maverick.
A great speech condemning Hitler and fascism from the first Charlie Chaplin “talkie.” Still powerfully relevant today.
You have to understand that he’s dressed like Hitler not to say that this is what Hitler said, but to satirize him and criticize the Nazi regime. When he says “machine men” he’s referring to the Nazi soldiers. Basically doing the opposite of him.
>This was a comment posted to an article featured on digg.com about the faces of angry people at the health care town halls. I’ve edited it slightly for my own use but it’s 99% the same:
You didn’t get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.
You didn’t get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate energy policy.
You didn’t get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.
You didn’t get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.
You didn’t get mad when we invaded a country that posed no threat to us.
You didn’t get mad when we spent over 600 billion(and counting) on said illegal war.
Of which, over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq.
You didn’t get mad when you found out we were torturing people.
You didn’t get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.
You didn’t get mad when we didn’t catch Bin Laden.
You didn’t get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.
You didn’t get mad when we let a major US city drown.
You didn’t get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark.
You finally got mad when.. when… wait for it… when the government decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, useless wars, lies, corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, are all ok with you but helping out other Americans… well screw that.
That about right?
