Ok, I might be wrong

Based on the comments that Ed Stein made on his blog, I wonder what I am not seeing in this whole healthcare bill that he does. While my immediate impression was "C***, I am screwed," the fact that Ed Stein seems to think that perhaps that healthcare bill passing is a good thing makes me curious. After all, Ed has been doing this for years, and knows much more about politics than I do. If nothing else, I will admit that he is right that the Republicans seem to be only concerned about regaining the control of the government and nothing else.

Quote of the Day: Crichton on Compromise

Historically, the claim of consensus has been the first refuge of scoundrels; it is a way to avoid debate by claiming that the matter is already settled.

Quote of the day: Voltaire on acceptable murder

It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.
