Al Franken Thinks Less Medical Bankruptcies Are Better, Conservatives Disagree

Tag: PoliticsTed @ 11:26 am

Senator Al Franken schools Diana Furchtgott-Roth of the Hudson Institute–which until recently employed disgraced health care “analyst” and serial liar Betsy McCaughey–on how people in other “socialized” countries don’t go bankrupt trying to stay alive.

We are officially in a depression!

Tag: PoliticsTed @ 12:49 pm

You know the old joke about the difference between a recession and a depression:  A recession is when your neighbor loses his job;  a depression is when you lose your job. 

I found out today that it is officially a depression.  They told us this morning that they are closing the chemical plant where I have worked for the last 34 years.

I hold our former idiot President, George W. Bush, personally responsible for running our country into economic ruin.  Those people who voted for him twice also share much of the blame.

Flag Draped Coffin & Taps

Flag Draped CoffinsI recently got an email from a friend with a link to https://www.bentbay.dk/uf_usa_flag.htm which explains the symbolism behind the folding of the flag after removal from the coffin at a military funeral.  His comment about the site was “This is great!”  I sent back the photo at the left with my opinion that the reality is not so great.  I’m thankful my son-in-law didn’t come back from Iraq this way.  The pain and suffering caused by the stupid Iraq War has been enormous.  It needs to end now before any more of our children’s lives are wasted by Bush’s pitiful attempts to save face.
