FRIDAY FAST ONES
2.) Robert Reich is one of my heroes. He is so smart and sensible and always seems to cut through to the meat of an issue. He says that we shouldn't gloat too much about the wackadoos taking over the GOP because we are still a two party system and we will still see those people elected.
Yet even if they lose the presidency on Election Day they’re still likely to be in charge of at least one house of Congress as well as several state legislators and governorships. That’s a problem for the nation.
3.) Finally saw The Descendents, George Clooney was amazing. Have not seen The Artist, but I think George might have been robbed of his Oscar. Netflix just delivered two more Oscar contenders: Beginners and Midnight in Paris.
4.) Did you hear about the Republican, Tea Party member. Dallas-area doctor named Jacques Roy who was recently arrested and charged with bilking Medicare and Medicaid. Dr. Roy is being charged with bilking the evil federal government for almost $375,000,000. Wonder if his right wing friends still think President Obama's "mad power grab and Socialization of our private health care system" is worse than one man's own mad grab for over a third of a billion taxpayer dollars?
Maybe with "bigger government" allowing for more fraud investigation we could have caught this hypocrite sooner.
5.) I keep wanting to write about Rush Limbaugh calling women who have sex "sluts." Everyone keeps reacting to his language and typical twisted "logic" but I keep wondering - are those women having sex alone? Are the men they are having sex with protecting them against an unwanted pregnancy? Where are the men in these discussions? I mean besides calling women whores for having sex with them? Oh, and telling them they are ruining the country with their out of wedlock babies or for having abortions? The men are saying Viagra should be covered by insurance but wanting coverage for birth control makes us protitutes.
Moms, wives, sisters, daughters - all of us are sluts, whores, protitutes. What does that make them?
