Rachel Maddow Hits the Nail on the Head About Health Care Reform Here

Rachel Maddow breaks it down simply. These Mobs are not debates with the Town Hall people about Health Care Reform, but mobs of people trying to shut things down. There are other reports about who is funding these mobs, and who is funding the busing of people in to create mobs at these functions which I may post later. We do need a real debate, not hot headed people trying to shut things down that they don’t understand. It is like those idiots who keep pushing for Intelligent Design to be taught in school, have no understanding of the real science, and how we got to where we are today in the science of cosmology, abiogensis and evolution (which they further confuse those three separate things into one). These people in these mobs aren’t educated on the truth of universal health care. They believe the horror stories that come from the systems while turning a blind eye to the many more horror stories coming out of our own system.
Anyhow, check out the video.

What is amusing is that what is being proposed in Washington isn’t a single payer system like Canada at all.
I do think that things are being rushed through without creating a whole new system that will work for everyone properly. Funny how those on the right are fighting against health care reform when they say they are the compassionate ones, they are the ones with Christ on their side. I say Christ hangs His head in shame over the way these conservatives are treating those that need affordable health care in this country, the country that claims to be the most Christian, but the only one not to provide affordable health care to every citizen, the only one not to guarantee vacation time, and a number of other areas that those who say they are compassionate, have no compassion for.
Are systems like they have in Candada, the UK, New Zealand and the rest of the world perfect? No. Are they better than what we have now? Undoubtedly. There is a great article at Science Blogs about Are patients in Universal Health Care Countries Less Satisfied? that I suggest people read.

Obama Attacks Bush While Announcing a Bush Like Program, Liberal Media Attacks Him

In a case of the pot calling the kettle black, Obama, standing in front of the Constitution of the United States, rightfully attacked Bush for his policies regrading detainees. Bush and Cheney and all the others should be prosecuted for war crimes. No doubt they overstep the rule of law, no doubt they tortured, or at least ordered the torture of detainees. Unfortunately, Obama hasn’t had the courage to order a full commission into those war crimes. During this speech, in front of the Constitution, Obama laid out a new plan. A plan that includes putting people in jail because they might commit a crime. It is, as the video below points out, something out of Minority Report (good movie by the way).
Here is Rachel Maddow, one of the more liberal reporters out there, on the most liberal media outlet out there, attacking Obama for it:

Of course this is what separates the liberal media from the conservative media. Hanity, Rush, Beck, O’Reilly and their ilk would just as well such Bush’ and Chaney’s dicks before admitting that they were wrong on Iraq and torture.

Some Great Ron Paul Stuff Including Ron Paul Wins New York

Some great stuff I saw over at the Daily Paul.
CNN talking about Ron Paul’s amazing amount of money earned, and they talk about how Paul got 4695 mentions on TV News outlets compared to McCains’ 95,005 from August 2006 to August 2007.

Ron Paul on MSNBCs Tucker Carlson show talking about the money bomb as well (Tucker is big Ron Paul supporter, supported him the last time he ran):

There is a bit on Ron Paul and why he seems to do so poorly on the polls. Basically the problem is whom the pollsters consider likely Republican voters, those who were crazy enough to vote for Bush last election, no Libertarians, independents or 3rd party supporters which makes up a huge chunk of his base, not to mention lots of his supporters may not have land line phones to be reached.

The first New York Straw Poll was held, and Ron Paul won against Giuliani. Giuliani’s own city, and Ron Paul bests him.

Ron Paul – 26 votes
Rudy Giuliani – 21 votes
Mitt Romney – 6 votes
John McCain – 4 botes
Mike Huckabee – 2 votes
Duncan Hunter – 1 vote
Tom Tancredo – 0 votes

Of course the question becomes why so few people in New York bothered with this Straw Poll when small state and city polls do so much better. Regardless, Ron Paul won out, in New York City of all places. Also, this seems to have been the Young Republicans, which would be more Ron Paul’s audience. However, straw polls probably are a better indicator of actual voting than the phone polls that the media quotes all the time since you actually have to go to them and take action, sometimes pay… Okay, somebody may try to point out the Ron Paul lost in Texas, but Texas did everything they could to stop Ron Paul supporters from being able to vote, directly baring some of them at the door, and he still placed third, had they Texas GOP not taken those actions Ron Paul would have won overwhelmingly.
Fox News and the others who keep accusing Ron Paul supporters of being just a small group of spammers is going to have a hard time explaining how he does so well in the primaries.
